I cannot tell you how much it will cost. But from what you are saying, it looks like you are going to have to replace back light or the converter.

if you have your own tech. you can get the piece from ebay-new for less and it should take about 30 minutes to replace. if you live in the 07033 area I can tell you to go.

good luck

Hp Pavilion DV-4000 Screen


Are you saying the lcd screen is black? It seems like it booted up but nothing appears on the screen?

Shine a flashlight on the dark screen to see if you barelysee the icons on the desktop. If so, then the LCD Inverter is bad.

Plug in an external monitor and see if the display shows up on it. It can beany kind of monitor even the old big fat crt monitors as long as it has a vgacable to connect to your computer's vga port. If so that proves yourvideo card is ok. The video will show on most systems when you rebootwithout you having to do anything. Some systems will require you to hit the FN(Function key) + F1 thru F12. Hold down the FN key then hit the correctkey for displaying on the monitor (F1 thru F12). The correct key willnormally have CRT/LCD on it or it will have the icon of a display.

If you see no icons by shinning a flash light and the external monitor works,then your screen is bad. If you see no icons by shinning the flash lightand nothing shows on the external monitor, then most likely your video card isbad.

Try (on the bottom of the laptop) removing the door to the RAM, and pulling one stick out at a time, than starting it, and than the other stick, and starting it. If you still have a black screen, than the motherboard has gone.

I have an hp pavilion dv 4000 and the cursor sticks and when I close the screen and then reopen, sometimes it works, but then it sticks again.


Check the cable that attaches your touch pad to the motherboard.

It may have come lose and so when you close the screen the moevement realigns it, until you move the laptop again and it comes lose again.

Run system restore to factory default.

Start the system and hold down the f11 key till you hear a beep. Then follow the onscreen instructions.

If not try reseat the memory.
If you able to see the something on the screen but it's too
dark to read , it could be backlight inverter problem.
what i learn from compaq DV model they have some
motherboard power up problem such as DV1000 / DV2000 etc..........if your laptop still under warranty i suggest you send
it back to the dealer for warranty.

Factory settings


If windows still boots ( and the original hard drive is still in the computer) you can click the start button and find the HP Recovery Manager under the All Programs list. It is probably tucked away under one of the HP tabs.

If windows doesn't boot, and you still have the original hard drive you can press F11 when your first turn it on at the HP logo screen. It should start the recovery program. (The F key can be different on different laptops but most recent HP's are F11)

Be careful, doing a System Restore will erase all your Data, so backup anything important!
