Hp pavilion dv9000 takes a long time to get past the bios screen. It won't boot of dvd either??


Check BIOS boot options and assign local hard drive as first for faster boot. This is also where you set CD\DVD as first to boot from disc. Look for F Key press on start up. It will be shown on screen. These can vary.

Many HP machines also have a boot menu option during boot. Again an F key and may vary.

It seems there is no booting as the memory is not responding or the hard disc is not booting up. Please check on the back up CMOS button cell battery on the back side of the laptop. replace if the voltage is low.
Also remove and reset the memory, if not you need to take consensus to know if this can be the hard disc, memory or the motherboard.

None of the keys work on hp logo screen F10, f11. f9. esc system won't boot from hard drive or cd


Hi,

are you using a usb keyboard? A lot of systems require a ps/2 (purple round connector) keyboard to access the bios settings and anything on the startup screen unless you have set usb on boot in the bios settings. I would try connecting a ps/2 keyboard and see if it helps.

Try holding down the esc button during a cold boot, as soon as you hit the power button you must hold down the esc key. Try it a few times waiting at least ten seconds between boots. If a screen comes up choose hard drive and computer should boot. This is only a workaround to a manufactures defect on the motherboard and will not fix the computer. But if it does post when you do this you will know it is a defective motherboard.

3)try to go to BIOS screen,if it gets stuck while going to bios,shut down the computer,disconnect the sata cable of the harddrive,try to boot the computer to bios without the hard drive connected,if it goes to bios properly with the harddrive cable disconnected,that means hard drive has gone bad.motherboard is alrite.

Won't boot.


Hello Lunartiger, i have one suggestion. My 4 year old toshiba satellite has had the same problem (almost.....). It would not boot or format. the hard drive's running sound was weird. It would do tic-tic-tic... instead of the normal chirrrrrrr.... I thought the hard drive was broken . So i went to a computer shop and replaced its original toshiba hard drive with a cheap refurbished Fujitsu hard drive. It's been working well(maybe faster) since then. If your hard drive sounds different then before, consider buying a new one. search the web for your laptop's motherboard to see where the CMOS bettery is. I used irisvista.com for my laptop but they might not have hp laptops there
