Question about HP Pavilion dv6000z Notebook

3 Answers

I have three problems with my hp pavilion dv5 notepook

Problem one:

The touchpad's left mouse botton often sticks and interacts with windows when i am not clicking on it. i have the touchpad currently disabled and i am using a mouse but it would be nice if anyone has an easy solution to this.

Problem two:

Above my keyboard, i have a touch mute and volume button. recently, the volume bar has been appearing in the middle of my moniter without me touching any of the volume controls. this started three weeks ago and then it occured once and since yesterday, it has happened twice. rebooting the computer takes care of the problem but this is obviously a time consuming and temporary mesure.

Problem three:

Over the last few days, my computer has overheated and shut down. I have had this computer a total of 40 days now. The laptop sits in a well aired area and the fan is working.

I am thinking of taking the computer to the shop but if i can fix this on my own, it would be better.

Thank you,

I have the same laptop but I can't help with the touchpad issue (must be a hardware issue b/c mine works fine....try unstalling the driverm then reinstall the driver). The problem with the volume I can help you with: go to start and type in MSCONFIG and click on the startup tab, then uncheck the onscreen display for quick touch (the name may vary) item.....then the volume will still change without showing you the annoying window (takes care of the random volume changes also & if the volume doesnt react, just tap the Stop button a couple times then change your volume)

now, the overheating and shutting down issue: go to HP's support site and type in the exact model number on the bottom of your laptop. now you need to go to the drivers and downloads section. there scroll down til you see BIOS. download and run this b/c it updates the laptop to where the fan inside will run faster and more often to compensate for the laptop running hot. helped mine out a lot.

Another thought (volume): uninstall just quicktouch in Programs and Features from the control panel. it gets rid of the annoying ticking when you adjust the volume....helped me out a bunch.

Ok - your unit is have a ECD502 error - device access error codes are looping and eventually your unit will die an unnatural death. The overheating is more than likely caused by a clogged heatsink unit - this will cause you overheat / thermal shutdown problems - seeing as you have other devices playing up EG mouse problems , audio problems means you chipset is slowly failing. You guessed it - nvidia chipset = if your unit is still under warranty get it in for a new m/board right now.

How to care my hp dv5 battery? buy the hp dv5 battery from

For long life battery:

-Don't play computer games, music or DVD movies - Multimedia activities drain laptop batteries.

-Disconnect all external device like PC Card modems, Firewire, USB devices and optical drives. Use the notebook touchpad instead of an external mouse.

-Adjust your screen brightness - Dimming your display saves battery power.

-Tweak Windows Power Options - Choose a Laptop power scheme that turns off the notebook monitor and hard disk after 10 minutes of inactivity.

-Decrease or mute the Laptop Speaker Volume.

-Programs that are run from a CD or DVD can be copied to and run from the hard drive, which typically consumes less power than an optical drive.

Have you made any changes to your computer's BIOS (when you first turn on your computer, and before Windows starts booting up you'd hit F1 or the Delete key to get in)? It's possible the touchpad was disabled there.

Do you have an external mouse plugged in at the same time? If so, try unplugging the mouse.

Finally, try looking in the control panel at Device Manager (is the device recognized properly or is there a question mark next to it?) or the Mouse settings.

If you are using Windows Vista on your notebook then you can follow the steps listed below for decreasing the touch sensitivity of the touchpad: a. Click Start and type ?Mouse? without quotes in Search field. b. Click on Mouse from the results list. c. This will open d. Click on Tapping tab in the Mouse Properties window. e. Click the Touch Sensitivity Button to launch Touchpad settings. f. Move the slider to the desired setting (in between Light touch to Hard touch) This will adjust the Touch sensitivity of the touch pad. Now check for the issue. 3. If the issue persists, then update BIOS on your notebook. To update BIOS, go to the HP drivers download page for your notebook model and then download and install the latest available BIOS update.

go to control panel = mouse pointer = look for the pointing device, maybe its called synaptics pointing device on you too then you can unchecked the buttons and even the whole device itself from it.
