Based upon the price, it sounds like this may be a "DVxxxx" series notebook. Those notebooks had issues with Video Cards; that caused the problem. There is some theory out there that says by "re heating" the graphics chip; you can connect it back to the system board. Some cases it works and sometimes not.

If you hook the computer up to an external monitor; do you see anything? If you DO see something, it's probably an Inverter or LCD screen. If you see nothing; it's possible it's a video card problem. One other thing I ran into on HP laptop's is that bad ram will cause them not to power on. Take out one stick, and try it . Hope that helps you out. Here is an article that is related to the HP video issues. http://techrxgb.com/2010/08/09/hp-pavilion-dv2000dv6000dv9000-and-compaq-presario-v3000v6000/

When you switch the laptop on the blue lights on the keybord is on for a few minutes before switched off, but the screen stays black. When you touch over the blue light keys it's turn automatic on? HP...


The touch buttons are there so you can turn your laptop on into the Quickplay feature without having to load into Windows. So basically if you just want to use it for multimedia. If you was to press power button, these will just load straight into Windows. It is meant to do this. If you are saying that the screen doesnt come on when you turn the laptop on and are basically saying that the laptop doesnt boot at all and is just a blank screen, then it is very very likely you have a motherboard failure. Contact HP to see if they have still covered your laptop with warranty as this is a known issue on these laptops and some warranty had been extended

My HP Pavilion dv2000 turns on, but screen is black


If the laptop appears to boot up but the LCD screen is black, then the problem is a back-light fault caused by either a faulty inverter or a faulty CCFL lamp. Please click on this link and follow my instructions to determine the fault and fix :-

Screen wont light up


Try booting up with your OS disk in (ie. your windows vista disk), this will bootup your computer with basic drivers installed. If your screen shows anything, then there is a driver issue, if not its a hardware issue and most likely will have to be replaced.
