It booted up, no problem. The proceedure is to remove static electricity.

If you need to download music video form DVD disc, I do not suggest you to use Leawo Youtube Donwloader, I think you need Leawo DVD Ripper.

This DVD converter helps to backup DVD to hard drive without quality loss; trim, crop and watermark DVD video for better visual enjoyment; rips and convert DVD to AVI, WMV, MP4, MP3, 3GP, MOV etc.

You can press the Orientation Button located in the right bottom corner of screen. It is marked with two arrows following each other in a circle.

Moreover, you can set as default the screen orientation you desire in Tablet Properties.

Also, remove the battery for 10 seconds and reinsert. This will enable auto orienting of screen.

Just to check, do you have any power settings enabled? If you right click the desktop and go to properties, then screensaver, then power settings, look for hibernation and options to turn off the monitor after a certain amount of time. Maybe one of these settings got checked.

I have looked at and reviewed your problem with your HP laptop DV6700Z and have the fallowing for you to aces.
First, if you are trying to access the internet via wireless, wait until you have established and wired connection.
If the blue light comes on in the front panel, the wireless is working, if not, you have a problem with the wireless modem.
Run a wire from your laptop to your modem and enter your my network, choose setup a internet connection.
Try to make a internet connection. Once you have established a connection, you can setup your wireless connection.
Hope this has helped you.

first step on all LT is to remove the main battery. off bottom with latches.
then the LT runs on AC power , endlessly and no dim screens.
any LT thinks its running on battery only, it goes to dim mode.
NO OS stated, by you, XP./vista,w7/8/10?
lines, are not a good sign, is this a 2008 laptop with the infamous
solder-balls from H3LL, Nvidia failures. here lets look that up.
seems yes, year 2007 stamped clear as day in the service manual (Free) at Hp.com. (aka, lead-free *****,etc)

so do this, run on AC only.
then, twist the bottom case then the screen case.
UN-nuturally, if lines change (add or subtract) it's a bad GPU or screen.
gently, do that, takes only gentle forces and is common failure.
test 3 is push the J key harder, like 5 lb ham on back of hand hard. screen changes? this is to get stress on the GPU, my be a waste of time, no 2 lapstops the same on lay out. even different by sub models, same name and number.

since i cant see your lines, and make great advice, above is wild guess on what you saw not me.
so,, if lines means, its only DIM ? then that is another answer
lets do DIM only.......
battery out main, ok? leave it out, so AC is the only powser
so the I Have full power logic runs it at full brightness.
and the brightness button actually works.

ever heard of CCFL. Back lamps.
the all die, everyone, for sure this old. 7 years old.
if used allot for sure. it's not LED black lamps here, understand that, the back lamps that last for ever are not HERE.
they (CCFL) go dim, go yellow(all do) and go intermittent or dead.
some even strobe,(flicker just before the END)
all do. every one. after about 20k hours used(adds up easy)
10 hr/day x 5.5 year is that, yours is 7 .

99% tubes bad. stats.
1% inverter bad, or both.
the inverter takes, low voltage and makes about 500vdc
for the tubes to run.

if you had photos of BAD, answers get x10 more easy.

You are using a security protocol not compatible with the site's certificate. It depends on which browser you're using, but I have a few fixes in mind.

If you're using Internet Explorer: At the top go to Tools then Internet Options, then click on the tab that says Advanced. Scroll down through the list and you want to make sure that "Use SSL 3.0" is checked.

If you're using Firefox: At the top go to Tools, then Options. Then the tab that says Advanced. Click on the tab in the lower portion that says Encryption. Make sure "Use SSL 3.0" is selected.

If you're using Google Chrome: Uninstall and reinstall the newest version.

Turn the laptop off and hit the vent ports on it with compressed air. You'd be shocked at the dust that is released. Briefly though, don't allow it to overspin fans.
Keep the vents clear for air flow. Use a tray if you are in bed because bedding will block air. Clean at least once per year.

unplug the external drive, end problem ! LOL ! omg easy.
or is the internal drive dead, missing or slick or inop.
and you boot to external. drives only.? that it, must we guess?
if yes, erase it and start over
learn this.
no A/V application on earth can clean off all 10,000, viruses in the world (repeat that 3 times for effect) CAN NOT.
if you have files there, then connect the infected hdd to a system
that has autoplay turned OFF, or boot o Linux in the CD tray and do it that why, you will never infect a CD running linux.
then backup files and then erase the pig.

do you know what BIOS is?
when you turn on any PC BIOS runs, first. (before Windows boots)
it prompts you with text "hit F10 to enter setup" or ESC key.
if that is dim and the brightness keys are dead (max = dim)
the CCFL are dead now. as all are those old.
first they go yellow, then dim then dead.
DV4 is old and has CCFL backlamp tubes that most now are dead
after 20,000 hours of usage.

the list of used Laptops or monitors not to buy or own.

the parts are not cheap nor is the labor to do this.
gander this.

no PC stated. what new Pavillion, must be guess that>
here I will answer for both classes of PC.

my wild guess, not seeing the PC.
you need the 2.5mm to 3.5 mm adapter. tiny to big.
you have the wrong ear phones , that dont fit PCs.
here it is,....
the also so the other way too. 3.5 to 2.5mm


as PC's get thinner,, the makers must go to the smaller 2.5mm jacks, or they cant do it.

no PC posted, why do that? 1985 to 2018
HP has vast 1000s of PC now. endless list really.

Ok so vista is expired and should be upgraded to a newer OS that being said it could be a virus that being said you could buy for $10 bucks, see the link, a usb wifi add on its simple to use and install.and see if it works, if it does and does not go bad right away then you will know your wireless chip in the computer has burned out. but do yourself a favor get rid of Vista

again for goodness sake get rid of Vista its to old and could be your problem, have some respect for your computer and upgrade it. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B06XSFPDFX/ref=asc_df_B06XSFPDFX5388364/?tag=hyprod-20&creative=394997&creativeASIN=B06XSFPDFX&linkCode=df0&hvadid=198076677096&hvpos=1o1&hvnetw=g&hvrand=15456606489138290479&hvpone=&hvptwo=&hvqmt=&hvdev=c&hvdvcmdl=&hvlocint=&hvlocphy=9005673&hvtargid=pla-373873511931

old gear. day. a 12 year old PC.'
PC stated
Monitor not, why post lacking what monitor you have.?

m7560n (what OS,XP?)
first off , the RTC battery in the PC will be dead. replace it.
no RTC coin cells last 12 year, so get a new one first.
or nothing but pain follows... i promise.
1: turn off power saver timer in the monitor usings its OSD menus.
(power saver, sleep and timers there, all off now, do so 1st.)
or do test with newer monitor.? easy no??
2: now with above eliminated from the pain, we now work the PC end.
3: next is the VGA cable, on 1/2 the desktops the rear of said desktop has 2 VGA jack, the main on the left facing the rear. and VGA #1 in the addin PCI slot, if you have 2 jacks the one in Mr. PCI slot is the only correct jack now.
4: the cable pins must not be bent on the cable, (all ends)
there are 4 jacks here 2 in cable, 1 in monitor and 1 on PC.
5 jacks for PCI expanded video, look and use only good cables and the correct jacks per your manual.

6: now power on, if the screens shows no input that that means the 2 cable sync lines are dead or video RGB is dead.
it means the cable is bad or the PC is dead. or the VGA card is dead.
most times its never the VGA chip or card bad.
7: most times it power in the PC is bad. bad power. or overheats.
ever clean this PC, if not all overheat, even in seconds.

fAN 1 IS THE PSU FAN DOES IT spin, does it blow out the rear of the PSU? or is the PSU packed in lint as all 12 year old PC are.
then the FAN#1 is the CPU fan, it must blow, must be seen and heard to blow, it most not be packed in lint either.
8: with 2 fans now blowing does the CD try eject,? now. it must on your command(button there)
can you get this far?
if you get this far we can go deeper, we can even remove shorted devices making the PSU fail and PSU is ok. ask

does your PC look like this after 12 years, sure they do.

New computers rarely have modems built in, you can tell by the existence of a RJ-11 (2 conductor) jack on the side or back to plug your phone line in. And also right click computer then properties then device manager. Then look for a modem under Network...
If you have a serial port, an older external modem might do the trick, But likely you have only USB ports and are chasing more trouble to go from USB to Serial to Modem.
A USB modem is probably expensive as well.

For the mouse, look at a second hand store for a USB mouse or borrow one and try that.
