Question about HP Pavilion dv1000 Notebook

1 Answer

My power on button doesnt always work well

I have an HP Pavilion dv1000 PC Notebook and when I try to start up my laptop, I have to press the power button at least 20 to 30 times. After 20 times or so if I press and hold for 4-5 secs it does seem to help. I am worried that eventually it will stay off permanently and that will be the end of my computer. Is this a fixable problem? Thanks, Linda P.

    If I had to start my laptop, I need to press the power button hard until my finger pains. Previously it would start with a single touch. If it hibernates, when ran out of power, I have a tough time restarting it. I had to press it a number of times and harder to on it. Please help me with my power button. How to repair it by myself ?

    I had this problem too. I had the power switch replaced to the tune of almost $200. When I got it back, it worked one time. II called the service center and they told me it was a problem with hibernation. I disabled hibernation and still no luck.

    Now it won't come on unless I use the media buttons on top and press F8. The light on the power switch doesn't come on. Very frustrating to have to start my computer this way and I'm not sure how long it will last.

This can be issue with the Power Button which might have worn out with repeated usage.
I recommend you to contact nearest Service Center and get the Power Button replaced as soon as possible.

It wont come on. it wont turn on


Hi,
Try a hard reset. Sometimes it works and is always the first step to take.
Remove the battery and the ac adapter plug from the laptop.
Press and hold the power button for fifteen seconds.
Install either the battery and A/C adapter .Now just press the power button to attempt a boot into the OS.

Contract for further instructions.
Hope this helps.

Problem with your charger, try this :

1. Check whether the charger plug is properly inserted in the Power port/jack of your Laptop!

2. Check the power cord (any cuts OR torn-out)!

3. If above steps don't work, replace your charger.

Hp Pavilion dv1000 laptop wireless connection doesnt always work? Sometimes it shows that a connection is available but it wont connect. Sometimes it works fine but drops out right in the middle of what...


you might have to review the driver version of your wireless. try to check if there are updates that might fixed the bug. go to my computer, right click, manage, device manager, network adapters - under it move your mouse on top of the wireless, right click, properties, driver and check driver version and date. then go to your hp pavilion product support http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/ProductList.jsp?lang=en&cc=us&prodTypeId=321957&prodSeriesId=432999&taskId=135
and look for new version of network wireless driver might have. let me know if this doesnt fix the problem.

RE: HP laptop no power


Give this a try -

1. Unplug all usb devices.(Printers, MP3 players, webcams, etc etc)

2. Remove the battery and power cable.

3. Press and hold the power button for 30sec.

4. Plug in just the cable (no battery)

If this doesnt work then it most likely needs a repair.

Also check the USB & power port for damage or if the charger jack is loose when you plug it in.

Turning on &sterio problems


Hi, my problem was that I had trouble turning my laptop on. It had been getting worse over the last couple of years. It was suggested that the power button should be replaced. While searching the HP site on how to do this, I ran across a solution that said to take out the battery, unhook anything else that might be connected to the laptop, and then press the power button for around 10 seconds to drain all remaining power out. Then put battery back in and try to turn on. It worked! My laptop now turns on and off just fine! Hope this can help someone else....Linda P
