Having problems with your HP Pavilion dv5-1000us Notebook PC ?

The screen on my HP Pavilion dv 1000 is too dark. The probem extends 2/3's from the left and almost 1/4 of the screen from the left. It's becoming so bad I barely can read the screen. Thre problem seems to be getting worse.


Answers :

If turning up the brightness hasn't helped then the lcd is likely going to fail soon.

option 1: hook it up to an external monitor.
option 2: Look for a replacement lcd on e-bay
option 3: Get a new laptop

HP will charge a lot for the display if they even still stock it.

Hope this helps.

X2gen monitor Hi, I have a fairly new x2gen 19" wide screen color monitor.  I have it hooked up to my hp laptop.  Now the problem: Much of the time I am getting the weirdest ripples running across the screen, like water on a pond. Sometimes they seem to be running left to right, and then the other way. This may be an optical illusion. But as I cannot get thru to x2gen I was wondering what I can do to stop it as it is serious headache food. Any ideas?
