black screen on HP Pavilion dv6000 with GeForce Go 7400 installed driver from DP_Graphics_B_wnt5_x86-32_1107

Re: black screen on HP Pavilion dv6000

a black screen on VGA/flat-panel can indicate a faulty CMOS battery on the dv6xxx & dv9xxx series.

Then again it could also be a dud GFX chip.  Google "bumpgate".

To confirm:  get a linuxLiveCD like 'knoppix' or 'ubuntu' & boot the portable with the disc in the drive & a spare monitor hooked up.

                 - if you receive a beep code upon POST, note the sequence & reply; you may have a dud graphics chip hmm
                 - if the machine boots, & the DVD drive light flashes away (hit enter after a time), yet nothing shows on either screens
                    then you can assure yourself that you have a dud graphics chip. sad

Hi TechDud thank you for your qiuck reply.

I don't think it is a graphics chip problem the laptop working normally, I built new universal image for XP with most driver packs, when tested the image on it screen went black when setup installing devices after reboot windows boot screen showed up whent it get to welcome screen it go black. rebooted on safe mode uninstalled graphics driver then installed diffrant one from windows update and it worked fine.

I think it a driver problem.

thanks again.

Your hardware is not supported in DriverPack Graphics B, it's in DriverPack Graphics C.
DPs_BASE.log please?

HP has a newer driver for your hardware here: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/soft … p;sw_lang=

Ugh, I hate sysprep.  I feel like we're playing "20 questions". sad
OK, moving thread to Universal Imaging.  Maybe someone else will help you in your non-standard install practices.
