Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

Screen does not light up - PC Desktops


Answers :

I just purchased a used HP Pavilion dv9000. I worked it before I left the shop. I got home (smooth ride), put it on my desk, hooked it up to AC, opened the lid, hit the powew switch (upper left side), and all the little blue lights come on (blink often), but the screen stays totally black, not lighting up. Whats up? The dealer was closing and said bring it back tomorrow, but I need it tonight! HELP
I have same problem. I tihnk you need to replace the screen as the tube has blown behind the screen. depending on the age of your computer, it may not be worth it. check out the cheep oldish laptops on ebay
