HP G4-1016DX LCD Does Not Light Up At Times

HP Recommended

I have a G4 and when opening the lid and powering up, fan and lights on keyboard start but no LCD.  Then later I can do the same thing and it will light up. Could it be the lid? I see no problems with the LCD when it does light up so I do not think it is the LCD screen or backlight. It seems to be the lid or maybe possibly a cable?  Thanks in advance.

Hello Nikkomon,

 

You screen will not always come on.

It could be the cable.

 

Here is a link to your service manual that will show you how to take apart the system and check the cable. Page 89.

 

Also, here is a link to a number to call HP and see what repair options they may have.

 

Let me know how everything goes.

Thanks will check the cable out, then call HP. I have also noticed it is running extremely fast and bottom gets really hot.

Nikkomon,

 

You may also want to go to HP.com and update the BIOS and the Graphics.

It could be software related.

 

Here is a link to the updates.
