Having problems with your HP PC Desktops ?

When opening my HP Pavilion dv6338se notebook, the screen occasionally won't light until I wiggle the lid. This is not a power jack problem but a screen hinge problem. Please advise.

Video Failure\015\012
\015\012 The first thing to check in cases of complete video failure is the power\015\012 status, as detailed above. If you can always hear your laptop fan when you\015\012 turn on the laptop and now you can't it's not a video failure, it's a power\015\012 or mainboard failure. The next troubleshooting step is to connect an external\015\012 monitor with a standard VGA connector, whether a CRT or an LCD. If your notebook\015\012 won't light up the external monitor, it's extremely likely that either the\015\012 motherboard or the internal video adapter (if it's not part of the mainboard)\015\012 has failed. If the video adapter is a discrete component and you can find\015\012 a replacement for under $100, it might be worth gambling on replacing, but\015\012 it's almost never cost effective to replace a mainboard. There is a small\015\012 chance that the internal connection to the external video port has coincidentally\015\012 failed with the laptop's own video subsystem, but it's not all that likely.\015\012
Hi,\015\012
\015\012The cables between the LCD and the Motherboard are most likley loose or then there is a problem with the backlight, do you have picture but just no backlight? if you have the screen under a light when the backlight is off do you have picture? if you do then the problem is in the backlight, or its connectors.
