    My HP Pavillion ze5200 has a similar problem. On start up there is a clicking noise while the main HP screen comes up. Then the next screen comes up where it shows the amount of system RAM Passed, extended RAM Passed, Cache SRAM Passed, System BIOS shadowed, and Video BIOS Shadowed. This is the screen it freezes on. I tried pushing escape to change the boot order, but it still freezes on this screen. The clicking noise stops once it reaches this screen also. Does anyone know what the problem is? Thanks for the help!

Hp pavillion ze5200 works on external monitor but not on laptop screen


there is something wrong with either your screen or screen inverter.

If you are not a laptop expert, I would advice that you take the laptop to a repairer that will help you diagnose the main fault so that you can either repair or replace either the inverter or screen.

Good luck.

Screen doesn't light up

Brand new? please take it back to your dealer. I assume you do have it plugged to the charger and it has power? it doesn't matter if the battery is empty or not, the laptop works with the charger with or without and battery.

Hp ze 5200

This could be one of many things, the best thing to do if you want to find out for free is take it to a computer repair shop and ask for an estimate for repair, usually all estimates are free.. however do ask!

before taking it there do try changing the fuse in the plug for the power supply if possible...
