Question about HP Pavilion dv1000 Notebook

1 Answer

Laptop is on last loading screen, but freezes.

I have an HP pavilion ze 5600 laptop. I have never hooked it up to the internet so it can't be one of those problems. Oh, and of course the warranty on it is out...:( It's done this before though.

Basically it gets on its last loading screen where the windows xp logo is and then doesn't move. I've tried catching it before the screen and do safe mode and on and on and on. I've tried almost everything. I know there is a combination I can you to destroy all memory in the computer and start it over fresh, but I can't remember it.

If there is anyone out there who can help me or help so I don't loose any of the novels I've been writing on it, I would be so greatful.

Speaking from a tech point of view, I would remove the hard drive and install it in a USB enclosure and attach that to another system as a "spare" drive. You can grab all your files by clicking on the USB, go to DOCUMENTS AND SETTINGS, locate your user profile, click on it to list it's contents, click on "user" documents and the files should be there for you to grab

Once you get your files, format the system over. You can try holding down the INSERT key on boot but from what you are saying, something is loading prior to the last screen and clearing memory won't help.

HP Pavilion ZE 2315 laptop with a black screen. First the screen image locked and now the screen will not even come on. Was told it's the GPU. How can I fix this?

Remove the screen and look for broken wire/s where the screen part hinges to the rest of the laptop. I repaired this very same problem last week. Provided the screen is not damaged, this may be your problem. Just remove the small, circular, rubber pads that hide the Phillips head screws (also provides for soft closings )and remove the screws. Use your fingers to pry off the plastic piece around the screen. Inspect the wires leading from the keyboard to the screen, and if broken (probably in the hinged area), solder and tape it

Need help disassembling hp 4300 laptop

One of my favorites things about HP is they have service manuals available for free online. Yours is located at:

and will give you exploded views, step-by-step disassemble, and part numbers for everything you'd ever need for that laptop. If you need a manual for another laptop, you can go to and search for the model number under support and troubleshooting information.

I hope this helps!
