Hello,
I have a laptop Hewlett Packard HP DVD 4 & I have not used it in 1 year but its starts when I place it on a desktop but whenever I try to be portable via picking & taking it to the library I am unable to boot up in 1st several tries? After taking out the battery & power supply pressing f8 & powering on off several times (30's) than it finally starts. It seems to be a lcd interface connection to the main laptop hardcase connection as I hear the current or something is not flowing the energy of current to the lcd. I have asked the repair dealer who has given me a quote of $300 to replace the lcd to new one, this is a powerful notebook & I do not want to change it at any cost? Any help appreciated ? Thanks.

✔ Best Answer
The battery might have died. Have you given the battery a nice long charge by leaving the laptop on?

No but it comes on after 30 power on's & off. Am leaving the laptop to charge now but I think its the connection from the lcd to case - have to bend the lcd several times as well before it comes on or lights up? I just don't want to spend over $300 or old laptop but everything else is fine.

Wow, that snippet of added information is all important. Assuming you are referring to the Display/Screen, it is clearly due to some poor connection somewhere near where you are pressing. So, you need to investigate the connections in that area or possibly replace or repair the screen.

What you previously had to do to overcome this issue was almost certainly just disturbing something in the proximity to the fault.

I think you can now forget my #1 as this was based only upon what you initially said.
