Laptop lid actuator switch is loose
\015 I've noticed the actuator switch is loose on my hp dv1000 laptop but don't know how to repair it. I have to jiggle this plunger around to make the screen light up but after a few seconds the screen goes dark againI took part of the computer apart and accessed this switch but don't know how to reconnect or what to reconnect it to. Underneath the actual plunger I can see a tiny rubber thing but it looks impossible to connect the two together.Any help would be greatly appreciated.\015
This is common problem. To get to that you'll have to take everything apart including motherboard. It's part of the top case. You'll have to bend it up for it to work or completely disable it permanently.

I'm trying to help my mum in spain.... (I'm in England.. unfortunately!) have just taken her HP G6000 notebook out to her and when she tried to turn it on it has a black screen. Have tried the power supplies (ac adaptor and battery, and draining the computer etc etc), have also tried the brightness (fn F7). The notebook seems to be working and at one point she could (only) just see a very faint desktop. I have looked at the hp website and it says something about the lid actuator switch, but she
