1 long, 2 short on the HP DV9000 is "bad video adapter". Since your video card is integrated into your motherboard, you're looking at replacing the entire board (between $200-$400 on average) + labor costs. It would be more cost effective to purchase a new laptop for $100-$200 more, with full warranty.

Hope this helps, and remember to rate those that offer free help :)

Where can i get a website to download a free video card for my PCG-6H4L

You can't - a video card is >hardware< - a physical device. Do you mean where can I download >drivers< for my PCG-6H4L? A Google shows that to be a Sony notebook, so Sony websites would be a good starting point.

FWIW, it's very poor form to not give the manufacturer for a device you want help with. I should >not< have to Google to find out the maker of your gizmo. That's rude on your part...

The CPU is overheating. Inspect the heat silicon compound between the processor and heat sink - they may have dried out. Re-apply new compound.

My HP Pavillion Entertainment laptop's screen is black. Power works, battery is fine...what can I do?

if you are in Toronto-Canada -- will perform this procedure for you , minimal cost
or let someone do this for you, who is familiar

its a heat sink (or lack thereof) issue with the CPU and video chip on board -- there is too much heat disspiated and not enough copper exposure to the video chip to absorb that amount of heat generated

before you do this let the computer cool down first for 30-60 minutes

one good thing to do , easy .. remove the screws from the plastic back cover, and remove the heatsink fan .. apply thermal compound grease to the heatsink (that sits on the CPU) and gently place it back -- do not put too much thermal compound, just a circular amount around the heat sink it back, put all screws back

let me know how you make out

please send me positive response

My HP dv1000 does not start. I checked both adapter and battery ( new ones), but still the problem persists. And the adapter makes a beep sound 2/sec, doens anybody know what it means. Please help me out.

i don't think it's your adapter which beeps, beep indicates Ram problem, does your laptop power on? if it does power on and you don't see anything on the screen then it is because of RAM. Try switching ram to other slot, or get a new ram.

Fan not working

The Problem that you are having is that the heat sink is full of dust therfor the processor can cool down quick enoufgh so in result by safty it shuts the computer down. You need to clean all the dust out of the heat sink and this problem will be solved. 
Good Luck

Beep code

The sequence of one long beep and two short beep when starting computer usually means problem in your display adapter. Make sure your VGA connector is connected properly to VGA out port.
If you are using VGA card (non on-board), you might want to make sure that the card is inserted properly to motherboard.
The beep indicates that system can not initialize display.
