Hello

I have the HP pavilion dv6700 and have done for afew years. I have never experienced problems untill now.

I was playing the sims and all of a sudden my screen went black yet I could still hear the clicking noises for the game. I turned my laptop off and on again but still greeted with a black screen. This happened around 5 hours ago.

I have left it for 2 hours on charge before coming back and trying to get it to work but still no luck. I have turned it off, took battery and charger out, pressed power button for 30 secs and turned back on using just the power chord. Since doing this I can hear it loading up to the screen that you put your password in but the screen is still black but slightly lit.

Any suggestions of what I do to fix it??

Thanks

I am thinking that maybe your laptop screen it self has died. It is also a possibility that the LED in your screen has died. Just a guess.

That's what I thought except it happened to my partners laptop about an hour ago?

Would a virus do this? Even though we wasn't on Internet?

Possibly if he has put in a flash drive with one on it but other than that no he couldnt have gotten one. Id take it somewhere and see what they say.
