Having problems with your HP Pavilion dv2736us PC Notebook ?

The screen on my HP pavilion dv2736us laptop stopped working completely out of the blue, with no apparent reason. It was working fine otherwise. I came back home after work to turn it on, and it came on (all the lights came on and the HD was 'whirring') - but the screen was pitch black, just like it is when it's off. Any fixes I can try to get it working again?


Answers :

Take your laptop into dark room and see if you can see a faint desktop on the screen. I want to know if the screen is actually dark or just dim because of a dead backlight. If there is nothing faitly showing up, try shining a flashlight on it and see if you can make out the desktop then. If you can't, try to hook up an exterior monitor to see if the signal can be sent to an external monitor. You may have to hold down the Fn key + an "F" key, may be F4, to toggle between the video outputs on your laptop. If that does not work, reboot and when you hear a beep, tap F8 to try and get the computer to boot to safe mode, this will trigger the laptop to show a safe mode resolution. If this does not work, then there is the possibility that either the video circuit has died, the laptop has a serious virus that has shut down the video circuit, or the screen inverter has dies which will not allow a video signal to be processed by the screen.
