  1. I have a HP Pavillion dv2000. It will not boot at all! All L.E.D.'s turn on and the dvd rom spins at start up. The screen is completely black and I do not hear the fan or hard drive spinning! Whoever can come up with an inclination of a fix will be considered a CYBER-KING or QUEEN( Both have equal importance!). The laptop will not even take boot up cd. So it is official that I must say.....HELP!:bounce:

    Not a good sign - are there any beeps at all?

    Cyber royalty not withstanding, if it is dead ( and I think it is) so what you need is a virtual undertaker.
    It is possible that the backlight has failed - I'm not being funny but boot it in a dark room - if you can see a faint image of the Windows logon on the screen this is it. Repairs should not cost more than $160/£80 + tax if this is case. This is clutching at straws as all the other symptoms look terminal. Take it to your local teccy shop and ask them? If in UK I can give you a couple of contacts.

    We don't have City Coroners in UK so you must be in the US - sorry cannot help with a decent repair shop for this.
