Question about HP PC Desktops

1 Answer

I can't seem to turn on my laptop (HP Pavilion dv6000). When I first attempted to turn on my laptop i saw a bit of smoke come out of the power connector spot. Now I don't think that is a good thing and when i checked the quick reference book the only thing that it talks about is low battery and just charging it in the right location. I'm just wondering if there is anything else i can do to fix this problem.

New DC jack, powers up but no display. Strange power LED behavior.


No Rob, you aren't running out of options. You just haven't diagnosed far enough, because you don't know the path.........hence where I come in.........

Using the HP Pavilion dv6000 series, and Pavilion dv9000 series of Notebook PC's, as an example,

http://mayohardware.blogspot.com/2010/04/important-parts-on-dv6000-and-dv9000.html

There are two Power MOSFET's being used.
The Fairchild Semiconductor Industries - FDS6679 - Power MOSFET, and the Alpha & Omega Semiconductor LTD - AO4407 Power MOSFET.

Both of these P.MOSFET's are Obsolete. However there are cross reference examples given. Let's look at two of these examples, and also note the cost,

My "hp pavilion a220n" won't


Check all wires for loose connections--- if the memory was wrong or something, it would still attempt to boot but stop during the POST and start to beep

When I turn on my HP Pavillion dv6000 it starts up but when it gets to the screen where you type in your password its black with the cursor on it.


marissalynn5, use the Restoration Disk, and choose Non-Destructive Installation when asked. (Repair)

If you do Not have the Restoration Disk (CD);

In the USA the disk is free. The shipping and handling is not.
$17 for a 5 to 7 day ship. $24 for a 2 to 3 day ship.

Call HP Support's toll-free phone number 1-800-474-6836.
24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Tell the representative that you need the Restoration Disk.
The representative may ask for the Product Number, or the Serial Number.

This is on the Bottom of the laptop in the white Service Tag.
P/N = Product Number
S/N = Serial Number

Turn the laptop on, install the disk in the DVD optical drive, close the drive tray. Perform the above.

If you are not in the USA, here is HP Support Worldwide contact information,

http://welcome.hp.com/country/us/en/wwcontact_us.html

[ If I may. If you are not in the USA, and obtain the Restoration Disk, may I ask how support treated you, and the cost of shipping of the disk? Was the disk free? ]

If using the Restoration Disk does not cure the problem, then I have bad news.

The HP Pavilion dv2000 series, Pavilion dv6000 series, and dv9000 series, have an inherent problem with the graphics chip.

This video explains the problem, and the repair, and possible warranty work by HP,

See if your unit qualifies for HP's limited warranty, mine did and they repaired it for free.
HP has identified a hardware issue with certain HP Pavilion dv2000/dv6000/dv9000 and Compaq Presario V3000/V6000 series notebook PCs, and has also released a new BIOS for these notebook PCs, version F.39 for dv2000/V3000, and version F.3D for dv6000/dv9000/V6000.

When i shut my laptop the tv i use as my monitor goes blank.


Right click the power icon in the system tray (should look like a little plug with a lightning bolt on it.)  Click on "adjust power properties."  Click on the "advanced" tab, then where it says, "When I close the lid of my portable computer," select "Do Nothing."

I have a crappy HP pavillion dv6000 laptop, after working fine on shutdown last night, i turned on this morning and it would not boot up. the lights on the volume bar lit up, flashed, and went off...thats...


It's acting like the juice is drained in the battery. Are you sure it's charged? Do you have a spare battery you can swap out?

Some of them come with two. I actually have the same series laptop (a Pavilion dv6258se, 6000 series), and they can be a little flaky.

I also had an issue where my HP power cable (that connects the laptop to the wall outlet) was faulty, and needed to be replaced, because it stopped charging the battery. I ended up purchasing a generic replacement power cable on eBay.

No sound in speakers


Sometimes the speaker internally disables itself when another audio device is connected (i.e. headphones or external speakers) and need to be reenabled from Control Panel. Try this.
