    If you arent able to do it yourself take it somewhere and see how much it would cost to have it done.

    Ive never tried to repair a screen but i know its not easy to do. Theres so many parts involved that if you dont know what your doing you can make things worse.Im going to assume to start with something has come loose and go from there.

    Be careful and you should be able to do this if you are good with your hands.

    This guide will give you an idea of what's involved :- http://www.insidemylaptop.com/remove-lcd-screen-inverter-board-hp-pavilion-dv7-notebook/

    The Video cable shown in Step 10 could be damaged or loose, that could cause the problem you have. Also check that the other end of this cable has a good connection in it's socket.

    Ebay.co.uk has some replacement cables :- http://www.ebay.co.uk/sch/i.html?_n...5698&rt=nc&_trksid=p3286.c0.m14&_sop=15&_sc=1
