The flickering could be a sign that your lcd screen is going bad and needs to be replaced. It could also be the video card inside the computer. Isolate the problem by connecting another monitor to the laptop. Borrow a monitor from a neighbor, friend, relative or co-worker and connect it to the laptop. If the Borrowed monitor displays ok without flickering, then your video card inside the computer is good, but your lcd screen is bad. If the Borrowed monitor flickers like your lcd screen did, then your video card inside the computer is bad.

Plug in an external monitor and see if the display shows up on it. It can be any kind of monitor even the old big fat crt monitors as long as it has a vga cable to connect to your computer's vga port. If so that proves your video card is ok. The video will show on most systems when you reboot without you having to do anything. Some systems will require you to hit the FN (Function key) + F1 thru F12. Hold down the FN key then hit the correct key for displaying on the monitor (F1 thru F12). The correct key will normally have CRT/LCD on it or it will have the icon of a display.

Try tapping the back of the lcd screen's lid to see if the flickering stops, increases or decreases. It might be that the lcd cable located at the top on the back of the lcd screen is loose.Isolate the problem by connecting another monitor to the computer. You'll have to take the lcd apart to get to the video cable on the back of it.

You either have a screen that has gone and needs to be replaced or a cheaper fix and usually a more likely one is that the inverter in the screen has gone out. The inverter is quite cheap, around $34.00. Try it

I suggest you get it checked out by the supplier undr warranty. Do not try to fix anything yourself because it most likely void your warranty.

SOURCE: The hp 6735s laptop wont start up?

At this point it sounds like your version of Windows is corrupt.

Try these steps

  1. Turn on your computer
  2. Count to 3
  3. Hold down the SHIFT or F8 key on your keyboard
  4. From the menu that appears look for the option marked "Safemode" enter the number on your keyboard that is beside safemode and press enter
  5. When windows loads click Start and choose Run
  6. in run type in "sfc /scannow" without quotes and press OK
  7. You may be prompted for your Windows CD. If you are, put your Windows CD or System Recovery Disk in your CD ROM and press okay
  8. This process can take a while. Once its done, reboot...
If the same screen that you described comes up again you may need to reinstall Windows.. This is done by putting your Windows CD or System Recovery CD in the CD ROM drive and rebooting your computer.

Hope this helps! If it doesn't please post back and I'll provide more help

If you use it from the power cable does it work better? There is a known issue with the 6735s and power management settings from battery.

I can't install window 7 on my Hp compaq 6735s notebook pc


First of all, did you run the windows 7 compatibility test ? Do you get a splash screen for HP? If you do you need to go into boot and make sure it's booting from the DVD player. Call me after you get this done and we can try something else. If you can't get the splash screen up, you have a serious problem!

Have you tried another power cord? If you try another power cord, and it still does the same thing, then I think your laptop is having a power problem. You need to take is to a technician to fix the problem for you.

Best wishes.
