Question about HP Pavilion dv1000 Notebook

Loading of pc

Well i have been having this problem for the last few days now. Whenever i switch on my pc, it switches on fine aswell as any pc, and then when it loads up, the start menu and the bar which the start menu is situation loads up fine but none of the icons on the right load up, when i try accessing the start menu it won't let me and instead the mouse changes to a 'loading' mouse if you get what i mean, i cannot double click the icons on the desktop and cannot turn off pc, ive tried starting it up in safe mode and with everything such as command prompt using f8 and it does the same, f10 doesnt work as i cannont shut down or restart my pc, so a system restore is out of the question and i do not have the disk that the laptop originally came with any ideas?

Error loading operating system - Windows Xp

If you are attempting to use Recovery and this is happening, Most likely you have a corrupted recovery partition....

If you are attempting to load Windows XP from A CDrom (Externally)
you will need to use an XP Cd that has integrated Sata drivers.. Windows home/pro 32bit does not..

Or Use a Windows Media Center Edition Version

Screen turns white

Hi there.
The ribbon cable which runs behind the screen has either become loose or has become defective.
If you still have warranty on the laptop send it in for repair, if you don't post back and i will tell you how to disassemble the screen to get to the ribbon cable.
If the ribbon cable is faulty you can of course use an external monitor so you can still use the laptop.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!

Screen is balnk

You need a new inverter board... it sounds like the transisters or capacitors in the last stage of fireup are gone. I'm no pro, but I've fixed a few lcd monitors with that very same problem.

Here's something crazy you may want to try at your own risk... I play in a band and very often our guitarist spills beer on his effect pedals. These are digital pedals with very similar components to that of a computer. When they finally give up and stop working, I take them apart and pull out the circuit boards and run them for a few seconds under warm to hot tap water (goes without saying, but NOT salt water, hehe) and then let them dry out for several days. When they are TOTALLY dry and reassembled they work fine again... it washes the ber off and gets rid of any shorts until the next time I have to put them through detox!

My guess is that the sticky juice is shorting the transistors, which are basically voltage controlled switches... if they don't switch then your monitor lights won't fire up. OR if they are getting too much power because of a shorted cap, they would switch back again, leaving the screen blank.

Again, I'm no pro and it's at your own risk... but considering it was juice... if I were you and could identify the inverter as the problem and planned to replace it, I would try that as a last resort before spending the cash. Make sure your inverter is completely dry before re-installing it!!!

anyone with more knowlege care to comment?
