Remove the side panel and check that the graphics card if fitted is seated correctly and check the ram is also seated.

If the system asks you to press F2 to set up everytime then the cmos battery needs replacing

Step 1:
1 long, 1 short beep : System board problem
1 long, 2 short beeps: Display adapter problem (MDA, CGA)
1 long, 3 short beeps: Enhanced Graphics Adapter (EGA)
3 long beeps : keyboard card
The beeps are post during post the very first work is done by the RAM , all the memory in the RAM is first transferred to the hard disk,and remains active untill turned off. WARNING: Before you start troubleshooting remember that you are dealing with electricity that can KILL. http://www.kitchentablecomputers.com/static.php - rules Make sure that your RAM modules and Cmos battery are securely seated on some motherboards Cmos batteries are soldered in. Test all power and data leads that attach from Motherboard to your Hard Drive IDE SATA Make sure they have a secure dust free connections if its a flat 40 pin ide it will be the first to fail Check the graphics card is seated properly with no dust in the socket you might have to remove it to check for dust reinstall it. Restart your computer the found new hardware wizard should activate A computer needs power and data to travel through every working device and to its continue its cycle and to have and end to function. Make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd and floppy drive have secure Make sure the connections and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty A computer needs all electric current and computer data to travel to and through every working device and have an end to work properly so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error.

Click start control panel administrative tools computer management device manager scroll through devices if you see a yellow Question / Exclamation ? ! or a Red X a new driver will need to be installed / updated.

Hp pavillion dv9000 lcd screen changes colour when moved


The inverter is to change the volts from the laptop to the Backlight. This wont have anything to do with it.
Im more than certian it will be the LCD cable. Proberly loose or torn at where the lid closes.
Hope this helps.

Pavillion DV9000 screen gone pink


Most likely you need a new inverter. Get exact model of laptop on bottom of unit, Go to www.HP.com and order part for that specific model.

Would suggest then bringing to computer repair center to get fixed. The frame of the LCD would need to be taken apart and could easily be broken. Part should cost $80-$150 on average.
