I am doing a job for a client right now and this is my last ditch effort, no one in the company has any idea!
I am doing a simple LCD replacement on an HP Pavilion DV5 1000us Laptop; did the replacement fine, booted up the box and ran into this issue;
Screen Lights up, whole screen goes grey...
Nothing on the display, no text, no post, no nothing, I can hear the fans and HDD spinning fine.
After about 30 seconds, screen turns white. Just sits there. Still lit up, like a lit white screen.
Due to the computer being given to me with a broken LCD, I was unable to see if it was booting properly before hand, only that it did in fact turn on.
I am under the impression I did the install correctly (I have done many) given the screen lights up (inverter check) and it has the ability to generate colors (grey, white screen).
Does this sound like a PREVIOUS issue or could this in fact have something to do with the LCD install?
Box needs to be returned to client by lunch tomorrow, so I need to know what to tell him or fix the install if I did this incorrectly.
I'm A+ and Network + certified, I've just never run into this issue.
--Oh, and calling client and asking if it was working before hand is not an option; because obviously he's going to say yes regardless. Anything they can do to get something free they will
