Having problems with your PC Laptops ?

HP Pavilion dv9000 Entertainment PC shows a black screen and nothing else when it is turned on...warranty expired in March 09. HP said not under warranty anymore and to take it to get serviced.


Answers :

Try and hook it up to an external monitor by using a vga cable. If there is a problem with the main display, the laptop will drive an external automatically. I have to tell you though that these laptops are notorious for burning out the video processors in them. If that happens to be the case, you will need a new motherboard. The one good thing about that is that there are instances where the motherboard from a dv6000 and the dv9000 can be interchangeble depending on the model. If you do get a picture on the external display then you may have just lost the screen and they can be changed out by just taking the bezel off the screen and disconnecting screws and cables.
