Most likely the fix is not permanent but this will buy you some time, enough to backup personal files or even use the laptop until you get a new one. Here are some HP models affected by this known video failure problem: HP Pavilion dv2000, dv6000, dv9000, tx1000 tablet PC, Compaq 700, v3000, v6000 and probably some others. I didn’t have paper towels at work but I had plenty of bubble wrap. This is a different model with very similar failure symptoms. After that I turned it on from AC adapter (again with hard drive and battery removed) and wrapped the base.

Today I show how to fix a known video problem on some HP laptops using bubble wrap. First, I tried this fix on a failed HP tx1000 Tablet PC. To make sure there is no cool air coming into the case through the bubble wrap, I closed all air vents with sticky tape.

This trick ed “towel fix” and used to fix “no video” issue in xbox360.
The Steps for a Hard Reset on an HP Laptop
If you know more models, please mention them in comments after this post. I didn’t really believe that this trick mht work and tried it just because of curiosity but… I closed it in a tablet mode (with hard drive and battery removed), plugged the AC adapter and wrapped the laptop properly in bubble wrap. I just couldn’t stop and tried the fix on another one. It was running like that for about 60-70 minutes but then I noticed that all LED lhts went off. Maybe the motherboard overheated too much and shut down on its own.
