I have a HP DV2000 and from what I have been reading of the recalls it sounds like this is dead. I just bought this laptop off someone and it did not have a charger, just received the charger and turned it on to a black screen.
All the lights do light up when i turn it on, i can also hear the fan start up. I tried taking out the memory and starting it, same thing, tried with HDD and the same. When I plug in the ac it does light up blue around the plug and the charging light up front also lights up blue.
I tried hooking it up to another laptop and I keep getting a message saying no external monitor connected when I hit Fn f8. I plan on taking it apart and seeing if maybe..hopefully something is not connected? Does this sound like it could be that or just a dead mb or video card?
