Welcome to the world of the motherboard-integrated video chip ... as opposed to a dedicated video card. From what I have gathered, this is an extremely common problem and replacing the chip is not very easily accomplished.

 

What REALLY bothers me is that mine went black after the ATI video "upgrade" on this very HP site. I am extremely disappointed, expecially because I had the laptop (Pavilion dv7-1135nr) in 18 months ago to have the motherboard replaced.

 

I'm replying on my daughter's 4 year old Dell Inspiron 1520. After running through the HP laptop, a dektop and three HP printers/all-in-one units, I think I may be finished with HP. Then again, you get wht you pay for and I bought my Pavilion for $499 at Best Buy.

 

Hang in there. If I fing a viable solution, I'll let you know.

Re: hp pavilion dv7 1035eo black screen with led lights

Hi,

 

I have probably got the same problem as you and I would also like to know what the blinking lights mean. I have seen the list presented regarding blinking lights however my problem is that the lights never stop blinking!?!? What does this mean? Can anyone from HP please let me/us know how to interpret this? Even if you don´t know then that is also an answer....

 

I have a DV7 1250eo.

Hi,

 

Most members of this forum, including myself, don't work for HP.  Regarding the LED 'blinks', can you match the pattern to any of the sequeces shown in the table below.

Re: hp pavilion dv7 1035eo black screen with led lights

Hi,

 

This was a new list for me including continous blinks however it is my caps+num lock that is giving my a continous blink...So I´m in the wrong thread? I did actually get an error about two months prior to the failure saying that the battery wasnt charging properly so perhaps it might be insufficient power?

Re: hp pavilion dv7 1035eo black screen with led lights

Before writing my previus comment I wanted to check what light were blinking and to my astonishment I could see in the corner of my eye that the computer started :smileysurprised:    I now have a screen saying:

 

"Checksumm error"

 

Press F5 to load Cmos Default value

 

Press F6 to continue.

 

 

What do I do now and also is this a receipt for there beeing insufficent power?

Re: hp pavilion dv7 1035eo black screen with led lights

Hi,

 

Errors 1 to 6 in the table refer to the Caps Lock/No. Lock LEDs - would the pattern be consistant with error1, the CPU is not functional?

I´m not sure it would fit the pattern of a cpu errror as it actually started again(see my post above your last one).

Re: hp pavilion dv7 1035eo black screen with led lights

Hi,

 

Press f5 to load the default values.  You will also need to press f10 after confirming the default values to save the change.
