Question about HP Pavilion dv2000t Notebook

1 Answer

Computer wont boot. LCD are on. No sounds at all.

Okay, so a friend came and asked me about her computer and I don't have any idea about what it is. The computer is a HP Pavilion dv2000 with Vista.

She told me that her screen had turned a bunch of red, green blocks and such all over randomly and then she powered off. Then it started up, going to where it loads, then nothing. Now it doesn't turn on at all: the lights are on, there are no beeps, no sound at all coming from it. The LCD for the wireless is set to red, too.

The AC adapter, when plugged in, does make the light go on.

Any ideas on what I can do?

Yup. Please try to remove the battery and use ac power. Please try to turn it on and see if it is still the same. It is safe to put the battery back in even if the laptop is on. Hope this works. Thanks.

Ask your friend for the password and if you still cannot get a password then -
You can remove or change the Window's User or administrator's password and privileges. You need access to a computer with Internet access to download the Hiren's Boot CD and burn it onto a CD.
Then insert this CD into the laptop/computer and boot up the laptop-computer with the Hiren's CD and follow the instructions.
There are very useful utilities CD and it a Linux boot CD which contains quite a lot of Utility programs including a password removal program.

HP recovery disks don't boot!


Sounds like you need a windows vista operating system disc. The recovery discs set your system back to factory settings like when you first brought it home from the store. But to me, the system is bloated with all the software and trial junk that you don't need. If you can get your hands on a Vista Operating System Disc, then do a clean install from it. Just make sure your Certificate Of Authentication (COA) sticker is readable so that you can activate the vista once you've got it loaded. If you can't get your hands on a system disc, take it to a computer repair shop, I would think you could find one that will load the operating system for $60 or less.

Mpcheeseman it wont ever turn my cd on now so i cant boot from it


Oh--now I understand. You are using the restore disks for your computer.
It sounds like you did the correct thing, but try this:
Do the whole thing over. After the last disk is finished and it wants you to restart the computer, remove the disk from the drive and see if it boots OK. It almost sounds like you were told to reboot the computer and when it started it asked you to press any key to boot from the CD and you did. Don't do that--just let it go on its own. Let us know what happens.

Okay. I have a Dell inspiron mini 10. I bought about a year and a half ago. I messed up when i spilled kool-aid on my computer, but i immediately turned it off, wiped off the stuff, opened up the innards...


Hi there!
The motherboard of your Dell Inspiron Mini 10 needs to be replace. If you don't have the Complete Care warranty, then Dell will not replace it for free. I suggest you contact Dell Technical Support and asked them how much it will cost to replace it. Also, check how much a new computer will cost and compare it to the price of replacing the motherboard. You can have an idea if its cheaper to replace the motherboard or to buy a new one.
Hope this helps

Eee pc 900SD. It wont boot up. say's file is missing or corrupt. \WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\CONFIG\SYSTEM. There is no cd\dvd rom so can i use flash drive or memory stick to replace that file? Cheers Don.W.


systems32 is part of operating system. and your computer is corrupted. Only solution is to reformat your computer by installing fresh operating system. Don't worry, you can borrow from any of your friend his EXTERNAL CDROM or DVD DRIVE to reformat your computer.

Acer launch at reboot


This sounds like an update trying to be configured. Try pressing F8 when the computer boots up this will take you into Safe Mode. Everything on the screen will look big but don't worry about that for now. Click on Start>accessories>system Tools>System Restore and choose a date when you know everything was working okay. When the computer has finished restoring the computer will reboot. If asked after booting choose Start Windows Normally.

I hope this helps. If not let me know
