Sometimes with HP laptops I have seen issues with the ribbon cable that connects the screen to the motherboard. It is quite a project to get to the connector but it is best described as a compression fit connector that the ribbon cable slides into.

The other issue with this model is cooling for the video card. Being compact and crammed in the laptop case the cooling fan may be clogged causing it to overheat. Check to make sure all cooling ports are clear.

The last item if it has been overheating could lead to a motherboard or video board replacement. If the unit has been overheating for some time it will cause the components to fail.

Reset button hp pavilion


Hi,
HP Pavilion not available reset button.
A hard or forced reset erases all information in the computer's memory which may restore functionality. Resetting your computer forces the system to clear and reestablish the software connections between the BIOS and the hardware.

Performing a hard or forced reset might fix the following conditions:-
Windows stops responding.
Computer stops before Windows loads - no boot, blinking cursor on a black display, and errors relating to OS not found or a missing drive.
Display suddenly goes blank and stays blank.
Software freezes.
Keyboard stops responding.
The computer does not return from sleep or suspend mode.

Thanks..

Blank Screen on start. No display


You need to replace the motherboard. When nothing comes on the display this means the bios on the motherboard is bad and the board and cpu need replaced.

Freezing or shutoff on boot, setup or minutes into operation


Try this:

Boot the system with your Windows XP installation disk. When the boot options window appears select R for recovery console. Once you have logged into the DOS session type: fixmbr and hit the enter or return key and select "y" for yes you want to do this. Type: fixboot and hit the return key again, hit "y" for yes.
