Hello my friends,
Having trouble with an HP Pavillion dv6423om running Windows Vista SP2 (32bit)(no recovery partition available). I am not sure what kind of event might have caused this. My daughter isn't a good historian that way. The machine boots quickly and fine right up to the desktop. I get a glimpse of a couple of updates (Adobe, and another one that I can't make out), that come up on the screen. Then it goes black. I can still hear the cpu fan running and all the touch buttons that are lit up above the keyboard are still lit. It seems to be running fine just no image on the screen, not evening the back lighting.
It boots in safe mode perfectly without problems. I first tried to restore to a previous date. I tried every date rolling back until I ran out of them. Wasn't that many however. I have uninstalled many programs and games that were unimportant to try to solve the issue, without positive results.I have run ADWCleaner, JRT, and Tweaking.com's Toolbox for Windows, all to no avail. What I would like to do is to perform a clean boot and then start to activate drivers in an organized fashion to pin the problem down.
Anyone have any good ideas to solve this issue? Any help will be greatly appreciated.
