Question about HP Pavilion dv9005us Notebook

1 Answer

I have an HP DV9000 laptop and did a presentation yesterday. When I arrived at the site I had to attach the display to an LCD projector. I connected the project via a porft connector, I believe that would normally be used for an external display. The PC did not immediately display on the projector so we were trying different key combinations mostly around variations on Fn F5 on the recommendation of the person assisting me. Some combination of keystrokes suddnely switched the display to the projector, but hte laptop screen weas blank. At the end of the presentation the projector was turned off before I could get the display back on the notebook. As I couldn't see anything to shut down the notebook properly, I simply powered it off. Now when I boot the notebook it comes up with the blank screen. I believe the notebook is fine, I just need to to know the sequence of keystrokes to get the display back on the notebook. I think it still thinks it is outputting the display to a projector. Does anyone know how to toggle it back? Thanks.

I think it's probably FN+F8 that may do this on the HP laptops. The key should have a little icon on it in the same color as the function key (typically blue) that will toggle the screen from the laptop screen to the external. There are usually 3 modes to this toggle
1. Laptop screen only
2. External screen only
3. Mirrored on laptop screen and external screen

So try toggling with the FN+F8 key combination.

Also you can probably start up in safe mode to disable the external VGA toggle.

When you see the HP Splash screen, start tapping the F8 Key to bring up the boot menu. From there choose safe mode and see if you get the video back in safe mode....After that reboot and see if it will bring up the video in normal viewing mode.

Good Luck

How to connect a Monitor to laptop


Connecting an External Monitor or Data Projector
You can switch to an external monitor or data projector by two methods. 1. Connect the external monitor to the laptop's video port, power up the external monitor first and the laptop. The video information will automatically switch to the external monitor. 2. If you power up the laptop first then you can switch the video output to the external monitor by pressing the Fn key and one of the Function keys, depending upon your make and model laptop. You can also toggle between the external monitor or both LCD screen plus the external monitor or back to LCD screen only by pressing the Fn key plus one of the function key. Here is a list of key combinations for some of the laptops :- IBM ThinkPad = Fn + F7 HP and Compaq = Fn + F4 Toshiba = Fn + F5 Dell = Fn + F8

I need to be able to connect my hp pavillion to a projector to display a power point presentation. What is the correct process?


Usually all one has to do is power up the projector, then while the laptop is turned off, plug the projector into the VGA port, boot the laptop, and there it is.
If that doesn't happen for some reason, you'll have to go into display settings and make the projector the primary display.

Check out page 86 for the display schematics. Page 120 outlines the dis-assembly. Page 154 actually describes the screws of which you speak. You may be able to purchase them locally.

Need to see display on both laptop and projector


On most laptops pressing the Fn key plus the F5 key (in your model laptop) several times will cause the video to switch to different options
In the various laptops I've used with data projectors it is the same.
If you plug in the data projector and power it up then the laptop then the Windows image will be on the data projector (provided the laptop's screen resolution matches the data projector).
To toggle between the data projector only, the LCD screen, then LCD screen plus data projector, and or back through this sequence, just press the Fn key and the F5 key to get the displays you want .

Presentation mode is off in laptop


use the remote control or the menu button on the projector - navigate the menu system of the projector and one of the options should be able to alter the presentation mode from off to on.

If you post back with the model of the projector can either post a link back with a pdf manual for it or if you read the manual it should show in there how to enable the presentation mode.

Also ensure that you have the projector and laptop connected via the relevant cable ie vga or dvi before you switch the laptop on.

Also ensure if its got an intel graphics card to use the intel or graphics card utility to enable dual display or clone display mode and that the projector is switched on before you turn your laptop on.

right click in free area on your desktop --> properties --> display --> and configure it under the advanced section with regards to getting your laptop to display on the projector

configuring your graphics card for the projector will vary from graphics card to graphics card as the drivers are different between manufacturers and they place things in different places.

If you also post back with what make and model of graphics card you have on your laptop I can try and assist you further with how to ensure your laptop is outputting to the projector.

Also if it displays funny then lower the resolution on your laptop as well as the display frequency / refresh rate as the output from the graphics card on your laptop has to match what the projector supports ( this will be in the manual of the projector in terms of what display modes it supports )

There is no display on my HP Pav dv9000


Is there any display during start up? If so, then the possible solution is that the display has been toggled for TV or external monitor display. Try hitting Function F5 on the keyboard (default display toggle function) and see if that turns on your LCD display.

Displays desktop background but nothing else


I discovered that my laptop supports two monitors and the projector was acting as monitor #2. By changing the priority of the monitors I have got the information I need on the screen, but now not on the laptop. However, I can work the two from the screen and that will suffice for the moment, until I can find a way of getting the information on both!

Video projector from a laptop


You can connect the Projector to the VGA Port of the Notebook which is a Blue Port which can be seen at the rear of any desktop computer to which we usually connect the Monitor to.

The VGA Port will have 15 holes on it and should be in Blue colour.

You can locate the VGA Port at the Left side of the Notebook.

Locate the port according to the information available below :

http://h10032.www1.hp.com/ctg/Manual/c00726464.pdf

Refer to page number 14 (18 of 32) in the manual.

Once you connect the Projector to this port, hold the FN key and press F4 key once.

This wil get the Display on the Projector connected to the Notebook.

If you just want the display only on the Projector, hold the FN key and press the F4 again.

Now, if you want the display back on the LCD of the Notebook, Press the FN + F4 third time.

Hope this helps..
