View Full Version : [ubuntu] HP Pavilion dv2899ea black screen

April 7th, 2010, 05:05 PM
We sucessfully installed latest Ubuntu on my daughters HP Pavilion dv2899 (artist edition). All worked fine to start with, wireless webcam etc. then in the midst of using Facebook chat the thing died and now nothing we have tried will get it to boot up, each time we get a black screen.

It has Intel Centrino and Nvidia graphics.

Anyone any ideas on how to resurrect it? We have tried hitting function keys on startup (just get loud beep) and removing the battery.
