I have a problem of display on my laptop HP pavillion dv 9000, the screen is black....What to do?
where to fix such problem, since HP support decline and say nothing
My friend's laptop had no display and fractured display on external
monitor. I replaced mobo and copper shimmed the graphic chip.
That fixed the major display problem. Cost less than $120.
I found a new motherboard from China for $105 & freight. copper shims,
heat sink paste and such the rest.
Took some patience and care but not a hard fix if you're mechanical.
If I had to charge for labor it wouldn't be worth it. I'm doing it for a 50th anniversary gift.
However, now a different display problem arose.
Now on cold start, internal display is black. I found by 3-finger salute
(Ctrl-Alt-Del) immediately following on-switch the display lights up
but usually only after numerous trys.
Hours of experimenting
revealed that by closing the lid immediately after pressing the on
switch, the display is lit when I reopen it. This seems to work
every time and I can now live with that but I am not so sure my
Hope this tip helps you some but I am still seeking a fix for this minor issue.
Sooner or later, I'll figure it out. When I do, I'll post it
