Question about HP Pavilion dv9000z Notebook

1 Answer

Will not start up

Comp worked great up until today with no problems at all. Then shut it down completely and now it will not start up. When i push the power button the lights come on and the whirring of the drive and possibly the fan start (normal stuff) then the whirring stops after about 5 seconds. After waiting about 15 seconds the computer shuts itself off. Upon pushing the power button again the lights will flash and it shuts itself off in about 3 seconds with no attempt to start up.

    My Lights come on but nobody's home - no beeping or anything - and the lights stay on. I'm going to try taking everything out like suggested. It was fine and than all the sudden locked up, I attempted to reboot and kaput.

If it's not beeping during the first start up then it's not POSTing.  Beep means everything connected to it seems to be functional ie PnP  
Try pulling out your memory and reseating it.   Try pulling out your battery for 5 minutes then plug in ac(without batt) and see if it will boot.  Try pulling your hard drive and reseat.  (access by covers on bottom...dont be scared. Touch something that's grounded just before you remove) If all this and still no full POST(with beep/s) then sounds like a new mobo or processor.

Weedeater lawn mower shuts off, but still has 3/4 tank of gas


On some mowers...if the gas cap vent is not working properly, it will run fine for about 15 or 20 minutes, start spitting and sputtering, if you loosen the cap, and let air back into the tank it starts running normally again.

Keeps turning off


Sounds like a hardware failure. Possilbly the motherboard, more than likely, the power supply.
But then - maybe neither.
Shut it off completely, once you restart, start hitting the F8 key ( once a second ) until you see the " Safe Mode" choices screen. Drop down and select the " Last known Good Configuration" option and hit enter.
If this doesnt work, try the same proceedures ( restart - F8 ) but this time select safe mode - at the top of the list.
If you sucessfully boot in safe mode, you have a system file problem that could be virus related, file table corruptions or registry problems or all combined.

I have a RCA Tv i bought several years ago and up until now it worked great. But it turns itself on and off and switchs through the channels on CATV before shutting down.


the push button switches are bad. you need to have the switches replaced to fix this common problem. the switches get corrosion and start making contact themselves with out being pushed by you causing all kinds of problems.. Your power and channel up and down switches are obviously the ones going bad first.

Case fan runs on standby


If your case fan uses a 4pin molex instead of a three pin which pluges in to the board. Than that's why it only shuts off when the system is powered down.
