Re: TouchSmart Screen 600 went all black

If this were it, it'd be the display.

I would contact HP at 1-866-408-5408 and ask them what you would do, if the computer were IN WARRANTY.

It sort of sounds like either its a hard drive problem or a display problem.  Loose cable?

I have more HP devices than you'd expect.
1 HP TouchPad 32 GB with Android
2 HP Touchsmarts (310-1000z and IQ527)
2 HP Printers (J6480 and J5750)
1 Laptop (HP DV6253CL)

Have at least some experience in each of those devices, and i'll do my best to help you.
Kudos if I helped!
