Laptop Screen Black, Flickering Screen

HP Pavilion Dv6-3000
Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit)

My laptop, which is an HP Pavilion Dv6-3000, is having boot issues. It's turning on, but the screen remains a flickering black. I have tried connecting it to an external monitor to no avail. What's strange is that it doesn't seem to turn off when I press the power button to turn it off, but rather it goes into sleep mode. There are no blinking LED's or beeps.

UPDATE: I have left the laptop on for a couple of hours, and the screen has stopped flickering and stays a complete black. I can hear the fan running, and the Caps Lock button, the Wireless Button (f12), and the mute button (f11) are all glowing (caps lock white, other two amber).

I completed all the steps in the section "Screen remains blank and does not display the HP logo screen". After pressing Enter in Step 9, the screen momentarily flashes a complete black but does not restart. Afterwards, it begins to flicker again. I have repeated the process three times, and each time the exact same thing happens.

Update: I connected the hard drive to my desktop and it worked perfectly fine. However, I plugged it back into the laptop and I had the same problem.

Hi @ErikCapp,

Thank you for your reply, I'll be more than glad to help you.

 

I understand that the issue has not resolved after following the steps mentioned in the previous interaction.

 

This could be a hardware issue with the unit.

 

Hence, you may contact HP Technical Phone Support from this link: http://hp.care/2r9wSvP

Select the country where you are located and type the product# or the serial number of the unit and then choose the 'Contact Support' tab at the top and scroll down to the bottom of the 'HP Support- Contact' page to fill out the form provided with your contact information. Click on 'Show Options' icon and then scroll down the page and select 'Get Phone Number' to get the phone number.

 

You have a good day ahead.

A phone number is not available for my product. I can only use the forums.
