Question about HP Pavilion dv6000z Notebook

Charging batter in my new HP Pavilion dv6929wm Entertainment Notebook PC

I've worked for years with eithernet connection (3 monitors)/ Graphic Arts, layout design newspapers, etc.

I've currently opened a business where I convert pics I've taken to a vinyl application, needing high dpi (800 to 1500, generally).

I'm currently seeing customers that require a "shoot" by myself, and before printing (plodder) vinyl pic, they need/ want to view a proof, obviously!

I can't keep dragging around 2' x 3' examples in a large portfolio, therefore to the point . . .

I purchased a laptop to go directly to the customer to review what I've accomplished. However, I've worked primarily for about a year with Windows XP and the laptop has VISTA. I just booted the thing up this morning and WILL NOT be using the devise on line . . . only as a tool to display, also repair, etc. with Photoshop software. I'm moving along pretty well with the set up process, but there's no manual to tell me how long to charge the battery or how. I'm assuning I simply plug it in, either on or off and it charges? But for how long. I miss a "hard copy" manual.

I'm sure I'll have many questions as I download (learn how on laptop first!) my CANON camera software, Photoshop, etc.

Also, I'd like to install a version of Open Office, as Works is a trial program I believe, on the laptop?

Anyway, I'd like to start taking proofs of the "shoots" I've done recently and get this business well established, at least supplimenting Social Security, or possibly, a full fledged business!

Sorry about so long an . . . "intro" . . . can you give me an 800 number or help me on line, possibly talking me through some of the initial learning issues I have?

I don't know where you reside but anywhere near larger cities, there will be courses offered by schools, community colleges, and often even larger libraries to bring folks up to speed.
You have so many questions, it's hard to know where to start! 
FYI: >  "before printing (plodder) vinyl pic,"
It's 'plotter' -
I've known a few 'plodders' in my life and fired a couple too! Good luck in your new endeavour-

HP pavilion entertainment laptop monitor will not come on. Laptop making sounds like it is downloading something but no disc in tray, not connected to internet.

Your computer is becoming way too hot and the soder between your graphic card and monitor is melting. You need to get your computer opened and reheat your graphic card ( I usually use a heat gun.) Make sure you do not heat it too much as you could screw up your graphic card. Once it is done, just hook the battery, ram, powering unit and hook-up your screen to see if your screen works. If it works then you need to place 2 copper shims between the heat sink contact points with your processor and graphic card to keep everything at a normal temperature. Then reassemble your computer.

Nope...Graphic card problem. Your computer needs to be opened, the graphic card reheated and copper shims need to be placed between the heatsink contact points with the graphic card and processor to prevent it from overheating again.

My HP Pavilion DV6929WM is having a few problems.. For some reason the screen will randomly go to 800 x 640 resolution, saying that there is another display. There is no other display besides the laptop...

sure, (reload a fresh new video driver)
what game, name it ?
are you using an external screen,all the time or part time?
does device manager show all drivers for GPU and Screen ok>?
DV6929WM has hot key for external screen, mine has on/off/auto, turn it off.
this pc is only supported at VISTA. says
so you changed OS right?
that means only non HP drivers now work.
so that takes hard work.

here is what it came with

when you upgrade with no HP support, problems will be plenty
we have to fix them 1 by 1, the hard way,
getting each driver 1 by 1, see. ?
go to and get i.
its a Geforce, (i have one of their fastest here now,)

My laptop screen is flickering

You most likely have a defective inverter that supplies high voltage to CCFL backlight. It is unlikely a faulty CCFL lamp because your laptop is approx 1yr. old.

Connect an external monitor to your laptop and power it up, if you see the normal Windows images then the video card and laptop is OK and the problem is the inverter or backlight.

Dim image and/or dark display on the laptop's LCD screen indicates a faulty LCD backlight and it could be the inverter that supplies high voltage to the CCFL lamp or it is the CCLF lamp is nearly burnt out or burnt out, most likely this is the case.
The inverter can be replaced easily but the CCLF lamp is more time consuming and requires soldering skills.

I have red line in my laptop model hp pavilion

First, we need to check whether the issue is with the LCD or with the Graphic Card of the Notebook because of which the line appears.

Do the steps below to check this :

Try connecting a Desktop Monitor to the VGA Port of the Notebook and press FN + F4 once the Monitor is turned on.

You should get the Display of the LCD on the Desktop Monitor connected to the Notebook.

If you see the line also on Desktop Monitor connected, the issue is with the Graphic Card.

However, if the Line appears only on the LCD of the Notebook and not on the Desktop Monitor, the issue is with the LCD.

In both the situations, the Notebook needs to be repaired.

Either the LCD needs to be replaced if the issue is with it or the Motherboard needs to be replace if the issue is found to be with the Graphic Card since the Graphic Card will be soldered on to the Motherboard and it cannot be replaced alone.

In both the situations, I recomend you to go for a new Notebook rather than getting this one repaired as you will get all the latest hardware components for the price you get it repaired.

Hope this helps...

Lines on screen

First of need to check the Notebook by connecting it to any Desktop Monitor to confirm whether the issue is with the LCD or with the Graphic Card of the Notebook.

Connect a Desktop Monitor to the Notebook when it is turned on and see that the Monitor is turned on.

Now, hold the FN key and press the F4 key once.

This will toggle the display of the Notebook to the Desktop Monitor.

If the Lines doesnot appear on the Desktop Monitor, the issue is with the LCD of the Notebook.

If the Lines appear on the Desktop Monitor along wtih the LCD of the Notebook, the issue is with the Graphic Card of the notebook.

In either situations, I would recommend you to go for a new Notebook rather than getting the current one repaired since it is a costly affair to get the LCD replaced and you need to change the entire Motherboard since the Graphic Card is soldered on to it.

Do reply if this helps...
