Dv6500 new dc adapter, battery and dc jack board, doesn't seem to responding to ac power at all only battery


What is the pattern of the flashing lights?

Since You have replaced the Power Cord, Battery and DC Power Jack, I think your problem is either the Memory or the Video Card. I do recall that the DV6000 series of hp laptops had the Nvidia Graphics (Video) Card that was a manufacturing defect and documenting all over the internet. If you get nothing to post on the lcd screen then you probably have the bad video card that needs to be reflowed.

Take a look at HP's site for a explanation of the blink codes by the link below.

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c01443366&tmp_track_link=ot_recdoc/c01443317/en_us/c01443366/loc:2&cc=us&dlc=en&jumpid=re_r163_eolproducts_psg_mar2011_dv6500_support_button&lc=en&product=3380544


When you plug in the power cord is there any lights whatsoever on the laptop, where the plug goes in or on the AC Adapter of the power cord?

When you press the power button do you hear fans running, hard drive spinning, lights on the computer, hear any beeps or lights constantly blinking, hear the DvD/CD drive click and the light on the drawer of the DvD/CD turn on for a second or two? If so the laptop is trying to boot or may have booted, but the screen is not showing for some reason.

Beep tones and blinking lights tells the technicians what is going on with the laptop and why it is not booting. Most times it's a motherboard issue when you hear beeps or blinking lights continuous. Most times the problem is with the memory or Video Card. Count the Blinking Lights or Beeps and take note of their pattern (1 Long or 1 Long followed by 2 Short).

Maybe your power cord is bad if you don't get anything to happen whatsoever when you press the power button. And if that's true maybe you was operating off the battery the last time you had it on and since the power cord is bad, it was not charging the battery so the battery is drained and the power cord is bad.

Maybe you have a Static Charge Buildup. Remove the Power Cord, Remove the Battery, then Press and Hold the power button for 30 seconds. After 30 seconds plug the power cord back in (leave the battery out) and hit the power button to see if it boots. If it does, you can put the battery back in and let it charge.


Maybe your DC Power Jack which is where the power cord plugs into the computer is bad. Take an ink pen and push the tip inside the jack and see if the little pin wiggles, if so the jack is bad. You'll have to take the laptop apart to fix it. Most times it is soldered onto the motherboard, so you will have to desolder the old and solder a new one.


Maybe your memory is bad or the memory slot is bad.

Remove the Power Cord, Open the Case and remove one of the memory chips. Set the chip aside then try rebooting the computer. If it boots, then you know the memory chip you set aside is bad so mark an x on it with an ink pen. If it fails to boot then move the chip to the next memory slot and try rebooting. If it fails take the chip out and set it aside, then put the other chip in and try booting it in both slots. If it boots, just to verify that the chip set aside is bad, mark an x on it and put it into the open memory chip slot and try booting.

I have a dv9310us that powers up with no video then shuts off and starts a reboot over and over with no boot screen the screen stays black/blank, what would cause that?


The graphics chip.

The HP Pavilion dv9310us is one of the Pavilion dv9000 series of Notebook PC's.

The dv2000, dv6000, and dv9000 series of HP Pavilion Notebook PC's, all have an inherent problem they share.
They have a poor cooling design for the Processor and the graphics chip.

A Chip or Chipset is an Integrated Circuit. Chip and Chipset are slang terms.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Integrated_Circuit

A graphics chip is attached to a small circuit board. (PCB) The board itself is attached to the motherboard via a surface mount type of technology.

BGA. Ball Grid Array.

To explain this type of mounting I will use an older Processor for an example.
The older Processors used pins on the bottom of them. These pins lined up with matching socket holes in the processor socket.

[Newer Processors have the socket holes, while the processor socket has the pins]

On the BGA type of surface mount, there are no pins protruding from the bottom of the graphics chip's circuit board.
There are solder balls.

On the motherboard there are matching copper pads.
The graphics chip is set in place on the motherboard so that the solder balls line up with the copper pads, then heat is applied, and the solder balls melt.

This action solders the graphics chip directly to the motherboard.
(Integrated Graphics. Also known as OnBoard Graphics. ON the motherBOARD)

With the poor cooling design of the above mentioned Pavilion DV series, the graphics chip overheats, and the solder connections begin to unsolder.
This makes a poor connection between the graphics chip, and the motherboard.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ball_grid_array

Hence the problem you are having.

Can NBA2k10 (PC) work for Nvidia 8200M G (128mb) (integrated)?


It can play it, but for a good rendering you should put the game at the lowest settings and at low resolution. Save a few bucks more and buy a separate video card.

HOW TO FIX YOUR DV6000/DV9000/DV2000

All the Problems described in the previous posts are Graphics Related..
Faulty Nvidia Chip..Both Intel And AMD Based Motherboards..Though More Common on the AMD..

The symptoms of the Laptop Powering on and Shutting Off Repeatedly..Or.. Powering On and Having No Video...Or... Power Strip Lights Up, Beeps,Shuts Down...Or..No Power At All...Or.. Intermittant Loss Of Wireless/Video Goes In And Out/Touchpad Slows and Freezes..

To Fix this issue, You will need to Reflow The Graphics Chip.

I will Explain In Full Detail As To The Correct Method Below....

HP DV6000/DV2000/DV9000 Compaq v2000 Video Chip Reflow Instructions

First Step Is Complete Disassembly Of All Parts And Components..
Remove RAM, Remove CPU, Of Course Remove Heatsink and Fan assembly.

Next Step is Insulating the Motherboard... You need to Protect The CPU area, The RAM area, Cover any plastic Plug ports.

Try to leave 1/4 inch area around the edge of the chip free of insulation.

To Insulate the Board.. I use thick pieces of Tin/Aluminum, you can fold up some aluminum foil (tin foil) About 4 folds thickness....

Now that you have your Motherboard Insulated... Make Sure There's Nothing Flamable Or Burnable Below the Motherboard... it will get quite hot underneath.

You will need a Heat Gun.. You can get one of these at your Local Home Improvement Store, they cost about $15 - $30.. You Will Use ONLY the LOW Heat Setting... I REPEAT..... USE ONLY THE LOW HEAT SETTING ....

Next You Will Need Some Coins.. Yes Coins..
8 Quarters and 2 Nickels... Put the 2 Nickels On the Bottom and Stack Quarters On Top...
Place The Stack Of 2 Nickels And 8 Quarters On Top Of The Graphics Chip...

The Reason for using the Coins: Using the coins serves a few purposes...
1) It Helps Transfers the heat Into The Chip More Evenly/Slowly
2) It Helps Hold The Heat Longer/Then Helps To Cool Slower
3) It Gives The Correct Amount Of Weight That Is Needed To Press The Chip


A Thing To Look Out For...

Hewlett Packard is nutorious for using the RED epoxy around the edge of the Graphics chip.. this epoxy is used to help secure the chip to the motherboard...
This is a process that is Hand Done at the Factory.. And Some Boards Will Have Only A Little Amount of this, Some Will Have Alot of it...And Some are Only Done On The Corner Edges....

If There Is Alot of This On Your Chip, You Might End Up Needing To Carefully (REAL CAREFULLY) Remove as much of this epoxy as able to....You can use a Razor Blade To Lightly Scrape This Off... DO NOT MISS AND SCRATCH THE MOTHERBOARD!!! Go SLOW...

Now Comes The Heating Of The Chip...

Start With The Heat Gun About 6 Inches Away From The Top Of The Quarter Stack..You want to be holding the gun at a 45% angle.. Aim the heat at the Edge of the chip, You Will Start Rotating Around the Chip- around the outer edge of the chip...then use tighter circles concentrating on the quarter stack, then after about 30-40 seconds, slowly move closer to the chip...
Never Move the Heat Gun Closer than the Top Of Your Coin Stack...Then Pull It Back And Slowly Repeat.. The Chip Needs To Get Hot Enough To Re-Melt The Solder Balls On The Underside Of The Graphics Chip Back Down To The Contact Pads On the Motherboard.. and this takes Quite Alot of heating to Do.... You Must Not OVERHEAT the CHip... It Is Best To Underheat it and have to Redo.. than to overheat.. It will cause the solder to break down and even crack/split.. causing failure forever...
This process will take about 3 minutes total.. Once you shut off the Heat Gun.. Leave The Stack of Coins On The Chip And Let Sit For Another 5 minutes..

Now Remove The Coins(carefull they might still be hot)
Remove All Insulation.. Reinstall RAM, CPU, Heatsink and FAN Assembly (and Of Course Thermal Pads or Paste.. Note:. If Paste Is Used.. It Must Be Silver Paste...

Now You Can Connect The Power Button Strip/ Video Cable And The DC Jack Cable.... And Plug In AC adapter .. You're Now Ready To Test For Solid Power and Video....

Hp dv9000 the lights comes on but it will not boot up!! screen just stays black. makes a few clicking noises and then nothing. then turns itself off and on!


Faulty Nvidia Chip...
You need to First Check and see if your laptop is listed under the recall list.. Go Here To CHeck..
http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c01087277&lc=en&cc=us

Match up your Model Number... Not the DV9000 number.. but your specific DV9000 version (ex: dv9123us) then see if your p/n is listed there... If it is, You will need to contact them either by online chat or by phone...
Explain what your laptops doing and that you found your laptop listed on the recall/extended service list...

If it's not listed...

You have 2 choices, 1 you need to Reflow the GPU/Graphics chip which involves reheating the Graphics chip to re-melt the Solder balls on the underside of the chip and reconnect to the board... THis is a process Done only by an experienced tech... the chip needs to be weighted, then heated to a certain temp, held, then cooled at a certain temp.... This will fix your issue...

Other Choice is to replace the motherboard..
You can email me for further info on Reflowing the graphics chip..

Your Graphics/GPU chip(s) Need to be Reflowed....
Due to Overheating Issues of the Dv9000, the Chips on the motherboard Fail, To Fix This Issue, the 2 chips will need to be "resoldered/reflowed" back to the Motherboard...You should first Check to see If your exact make/model is listed on the HP list of recalls for that dv9000 series... They will repair it at no cost to you as long as you aren't over a year out of your warranty

Motherboard or on-board graphics card failure


I had the same kind of stripes on my hp dv9000. I read in forum that it was a heat problem, that loosens the soldering on the GPU chip.. I wrapped it into a towel for approx 30-60 min.. That removed the stripes in bios screen..

Hp pavillon dv9000 error beeps


Now video? All the lights are on? Tree beep codes? A long one followed by two shorte once? Found solution, at least with my two HP dv9000 series laptops. The video chip on the bottom side of motherboard needs to be re-flowed. The best way to check it is to apply decent pressure on the left side of keyboard until you feel that you’ve pressed the motherboard against the bottom side of laptop. Good for couple start ups unless you hit it hard J. If it works, find a manual on HP site how to take your laptop apart and use this video how to re-flow motherboard.
