Question about HP Pavilion ZV5000, ZV6000, ZX5000 Series 12 Cell Li-Ion Battery - DP390A (DP390A1) CD-ROM Drive

HP laptop display

My problem is whenever I try to download games or play existing games, my screen goes all scrambled and I can't see anything, so I have to turn my computer off. If the game loads in a minimized version, I can play, but as soon as I try to maximize it, the screen scrambles again. I've been having this annoying problem since my boyfriend borrowed my computer and his brother messed with the display to put it on his TV. Please help! Thanks!

    I've actually tried to change my display, but as soon as I hit the apply button, it scrambles my screen just like with the games. I end up having to turn it off and restarting it. Sometimes the screen will stay scrambled when the system reboots, so I have gotten good at navigating without being able to see. Any more ideas?? Thanks!!

Hi tredler,

Are you running a Windows OS?

If so, it is possible when your boyfriend used your laptop with a TV he may have changed the resolution settings. This may cause a compatibility issue when loading certain programs or games.

I suggest navigating to your Display properties through the Control Panel. Click on the advanced tab and change the resolution. This may be labeled as "Desktop Size." Try increasing the resolution (or adding "more" Desktop Size).

Thank you,
Jason,

Unfortunately you would need a better gfx card.
External gfx cards do not really exist so you would have to buy a new laptop with better gfx possibilities I'm afraid.

My hp laptop has a displaced display. Meaning you


A skewed display usually indicates an incorrect driver. Try rolling the driver back or reinstalling it.

However, because you are experiencing the problem at BIOS, its most likely related to the monitor. It could be the inverter or just the screen itself. It might be cause to replace the screen or contact the manufacturer to utilize the warranty, if applicable. Seems like a factory fault.

Hp pavilion zx5000 windows will not start, goes to blue screen


If you are getting a Blue screen repeatedly and you can't start up to windows in any custom setting ( from f8 start up menu ) one way to solve the problem is to Use the restore disc or windows installation cd or dvd to install windows into the computer or perform a repair installation if a windows already exists on the computer and the setup can find it.

how to perform a repair installation

this is for xp, but its similar on 2000 and on vista.

insert your Windows XP Setup CD, and restart your computer.

1.When the Press any key to boot from CD message is displayed on your screen, press a key to start your computer from the Windows XP CD.

if not then the computer is not set to start up from a cd, you can either enter the setup / bios to change that setting OR right when you power up the computer look at the screen it will say what button to press in order to enter boot menu or bios, it will very likely be button F12 or similar, it should say on the screen when you power on.

if it doesn't, then you need to go into the bios and change the boot order so that the computer starts from the CD first.

after that you should be able to start from the cd and install the OS (Operating system, eg.Windows)

here's some info on how to work the bios: http://www.whitecanyon.com/how-to-change-boot-order.php


Repeat step 1 when you have changed the boot order.

2.Press ENTER when you see the message To setup Windows XP now, and then press ENTER displayed on the Welcome to Setup screen.

3.Do not choose the option to press R to use the Recovery Console.

4.In the Windows XP Licensing Agreement, press F8 to agree to the license agreement.

5.Make sure that your current installation of Windows XP is selected in the box, and then press R to repair Windows XP.

6.Follow the instructions on the screen to complete Setup.

7.Ones windows is working you will need the drivers for your computer, they are at the makers website, for hp and compaq. www.hp.com for acer http://support.acer-euro.com/drivers/downloads.html for all other brands go to google and write Brand drivers. Should get you to the right place. Dell is most likely www.dell.com and so on.

Display pixelized


Pixelated is a pretty generic description so doesn't help a lot, however, it could be you started your notebook in Safe mode, where Windows defaults to a low graphics setting for maximum compatibility with all hardware. Or, maybe you changed the video display settings yourself? Your native screen resolution is probably 1200 x 800, check the display setting to see if that's what it is set at now. Also check the HP.Com web site to see if they have a video display driver you can download, maybe your driver got deleted or somehow corrupted.

The screen goes blank at start up


If you can not see anything, then it may be your inverter (Replacement part cost is around $50.00), if you can see a dark image then your CCFL (Cold Cathode Fluorescent Lamp) is out. (Replacement part cost is around $15.00)
