Having problems with your HP Compaq Presario V2000 Notebook ?

I have a compaq laptop that the screen is dark but beyond the darkness you can see the stuff on the screen, i took it to a repair shop and its not the backlight or the inverter.what else could be causing my screen not to light up?


Answers :

The number of these i have fixed..... i'm 95% sure its the backlight, though it could have some underlying issues with the connectors on the motherboard, and a slight possibility of it being the graphics chipset, check if its under warranty with compaq, if it is have them walk you through thier troubleshooting, and have it sent off to them, they will get ya fixed and on your way, try a power cycle though. pop out the battery and pull out the cord,then hold the power button down for a minute and put the battery and ac adapter back in, if it dont work call compaq. :D cheers
