    I have the same problem, it would start, lights come on..... but nothing.. everything began when I was typing a report at work. all of a suddden the screen faded....

    turn it off back on,,, same thing restarted again and back on... since then it did not work. I went to geeks, I bought it in Cirquit City, after almost a month they told me that the mother board was gone. it'll cost about $650.00 labor and parts... I found the mother board in about $ 200.00 on ebay and amazon.... I am looking for the assembly manual..... or similar to dare to do it myself... but reading before even try...

    Have the same problem, but it doesn't happen all the time. Sometimesthe system boots normally, sometimes it just stops after I switch iton. Blue lights are on, fan is running, but nothing is happening.Sometimes it displays the message "operating system not found".

    It'snot the hard drive, because this happens even when booting from cd (orwhen altogether removing the harddrive and booting from cd). Harddrivewas also snugly connected.

    Until a few days ago it was workingfine. If this means that soon it will not start at all anymore thanthat is cr*p quality they have delivered here (and I thought hp was aquality brand :-(

    My HP laptop Pavilion tx1000 is 2 and a half years old. First the CD rom did not work - on starting a CD it would hang. Then the wireless went off. Now it does not boot at all and there is no display. Service centre says that there is a motherboard problem and has to be replaced. Ideas?

  • Anonymous Feb 09, 2009

    There is certainly a trend, I am on my second year and my tx1000z had its system board replaced twice. The symptom was that the computer would turn on - fan, leds are on, but nothing would be displayed on the screen, no HP logo, no POST. Finally the computer just started to power itself off after a minute or less of being turned on, indicative of a heat problem. Having my fan assembly replaced now and parts can only be ordered from HP of course. Looks like HP went into new business model of selling cheap computers and making spare parts. This is going to be the last HP laptop I bought.

This was a solution for me, i pulled the hard drive out and cleaned the connectiions to the mother board. HP in thier genius decided to create slot in connection for the drive ( like whats wrong with the normal connections type ?) anyway, open the hard drive cover pull the little black tab ( yes thats what removes it ) and blow the **** out of the hard drive connectors on the board and the drive. mine worked, hope your does. sorry to hear about the guy that cant boot from a CD, this isnt goign to help you :(. it worked for mine

It is not real hard to put in a new mobo but read the manual CAREFULLY make sure all the jumpers are set correctly. It sounds like bvrom's hdd is going out if not out already. HDD failure means it cannot read your hard drive. If you haven't already back up your drive if it will start and install a new one then install windows again

Describe your HP Pavilion dv9000z 17" Notebook Laptop PC PC Notebook Problem it won't boot up, it lights up but nothing else

Does it make a beeping sound when you turn it on? If it does try this:
Turn it off and take the battery out for about 2 minutes. Put the battery back in and press the power button to turn on. Immediately tap the F8 key on your keyboard. This will bring you to the advanced boot options. Choose last known good configuration.
If that doesn't work you may also try choosing system restore in the advanced boot options and follow the instructions. Note that a system restore brings the computer setting back to a previous restore point.
I hope this helps.

Hi I have started my HP PAvilion dv9310us notebook all the keyboard lights are on but nothing is displayed on the screen it seems the notebook is turned off but it is on and running.

lights are on but nobody is home.
This is a problem seen in a couple of HP model lines (dv, and tx).
Short version...
Your motherboard is shot, I hope you are still under warranty as HP hasn't owned up to the design flaw that causes the problem enough to do a recall or offer replacement.

IF you have critical files that you need to get from the machine you may try the following, however this is not a long term solution...

1) turn pc on (lights are on fans are running, no hp spalsh screen, no nothing)
2) put pc in a bag (what ever you would carry your laptop around in should work, or wrap in a towel, the point is that it gets really hot)
3) wait 20-30 min.
4) turn pc completely off (hold power button for several sec or unplug and remove battery)
5) try rebooting (you may have to try a couple times, and I have a superstition that holding down F10 while powering on helps, once you see the HP splash you should be good to go)
6) Remember that HP makes devices with all kinds of cool features, but they almost always fail shortly after the end of thier warranty.

If the system turn on and off and again on automatically, sometimes the problem is in GMCH. ie in the graphic chip. There are other reasons also. You have nothing to do unless you are a chip level technician. Contact me if you are. Make a reply for this because I will get satisfaction by it.

My hp pavilion tx1000series won't boot even at bios

EXTREMELY common failure in the TX1000 line. Problem is the mainboard, part# 441097-001. From HP it should only be about $200 on exchange. DO NOT get this part anywhere else, as the OTHER common failure for this model is the wifi goes out.
I do about 10 of these TX's per day, no im not kidding, and i promise you HP has the most stable parts source around for this.

Cant turn my built in webcam on??


This is known Webcam issue in DV6000 notebooks. To resolve or narrow down the issue, we have to check few things.

First open Device Manager.

Please follow these steps to open Device Manager:

1. Right Click on 'My Computer' icon on Desktop and choose Properties.
2. The System properties Window opens.
3. Click Hardware tab and then click the Device Manager button.

Expand + Imagining Devices and check if the HP Webcam is listed under it.

If Webcam is not listed there, then you have to contact HP to get the BIOS update.

If it is listed there, right click on it and select Disable. Again right click on it and select Enable.

Now open any applications like Quickplay and check if Webcam is working or not.

Please reply me if that won't resolve the issue, I can provide more work arounds
