HP Laptop Display goes off

  woodchip 23:58 03 Apr 2009

Any Ideas about the above? The Laptop is still running as when I press the Start button it shuts down with windows shut down sound. the Screen is still lit but is like a blank very pail pink. Its okay if I reboot. This is random can use for some time and it does not go of then next time I use it just goes off. XP home 1Gig Ram.

Could it be a possible Driver corruption of Display Driver?

Temp's are okay using speedfan.

Shot in the dark here but I'd try re-instating ram modules connections. Sounds like a bad connection.

Reinstall drivers and switch off power saving options that allow the screen to dim down when on battery only.

This is running on Mains with things to not turn off when on mains. Last post may be the answer, as I said windows is still running but you cannot see nothing hence the shut down Windows Sound when I tap the off switch on the Laptop.It fires strait up with no problems on reboot

woodchip; any joy, please? A friend has an HP laptop with a similar problem which he has just told me about & I signed in to see whom else is reporting a similar issue.

I upgraded the Graphics driver, also made BIOS so Fan did not turn off when running on Mains. it seams to have worked up to now
