HP Pavilion zv5000 Screen

Hi, I have just recenty bought a used HP ZV5000. It had a bad hard drive in it with bad clustters. I removed the hard drive and put the new one in. I all so checked the memory a compartment. I turned it on and the screen would not come one but the computer booted. I installed windows by hooking up a screen to the back of it. I installed all the drivers for it to figuring that was the problem, still no screen. The screen worked fine when I got it. Can some one tell me what this issue might be. Thank you, Steve

Hi, I just stumbled upon this post while researching a different problem. I have the same laptop and had a problem with my screen not working which really freaked me as I had it for less than a year & was still paying on it. Same as you, I could hear it running going thru post etc. I discovered that this laptop has a very touchy little switch right by the hinge which is supposed to tell the computer when you fold open & close your laptop. I discovered that gently wiggling & pressing up & down this switch with the laptop open finally brought my screen back into action. I now rarely open & close my poor laptop as I'm afraid that switch will give out on me. Definate design flaw they are aware of as I read about it on their support page. Hope this helps others. :)

This seems to be a very common problem on fixa, yet the only diagnosis could be a damaged connection from board to screen possibly in the hinged area. You may get some information regarding the video issue from HP, as there is something connecting all these problems once the hardrive has been replaced, whether there is a hidden bios setup for the screen; I don't know, unless the problem relates to a motherboard disturbance, although this would not be the case if you could get a monitor to work via vga port. I applogise for no solution but it just seems unbeleivable that this is a regular occurance after an upgrade or hardware replacement. I think maybe it's one of those close kept secrets of notebook manufacturers.

I attempted to upgrade the RAM on my HP Pavilion zv5000. (the one under the keyboard) when I tried to turn it on, there is just a blank screen. Any idea what the problem is? The laptop was installed...

According to the link below you can do the upgrade. If is not working, make sure you have the memory seated correctly, then mix and match the memory and switch slots to find the problem memory. It may be incompatible with either the motherboard or the other memory sticks, or just a bad stick.
