Startup repair will not fix problem

I was given this laptop from my brother who no longer needed it, it has already expired as far as the warranty so here goes. We will turn on the computer and it will go into startup repair mode and just hangs there. Should we purchase another laptop? I do not have any of the installation disks that came with the laptop.

My CQ61-411WM doesn't boot anymore. Symptoms:


Hi

If the graphics card was intact, the external monitor test would have given you an image.

Unfortunately, this seems like a graphics card problem common to this manufacturer (google HP Compaq Notebook Graphics Problems).

This fault can be repaired only by specialist laptop repairers with specialist tools.

The repair is called Reballing the Ball Grid Array.

Reballing has a marginal success rate and even if successful, the fault can reoccur. A typical professional repair warranty would give you 3-6 months post-repair warranty.

Sometimes the surface of the graphics chip is too damaged to repair.

This repair can be expensive as it may involve several time and labour intensive rounds of disassembly, repair, reassembly and testing.

If you do opt for repair, ensure that the repairer is a specialist, properly equipped with an Infra Red Workstation, experienced in this specific type of repair, is willing to do a No-Fix-No-Fee Repair and offers a Repair Warranty.

If the laptop's warranty has expired and the repair cost seems high to you, it may be time to consider a new laptop.

Sorry for the bad news.

Hope this helps.

No Boot Up Too



Sorry to hear about your HP problems with your DV2000
If you go to HP.COM and check the recalls and extended warranty.
I some cases HP offers an additional 1 year from date of warranty expiration. or 2 years from date of purchase.
If your unit has lost video, shuts down, won't startup.. Review, these areas under your model...
Note.......
Do not call HP if possible until you have found the needed information on your machine.

1. After you have your information,
(A) copy it, (B) call on it. (C) Register your problem with HP and get a Trouble ticket on file.
If HP is going to warranty to repair, they will issue you a New warrant for the New Repair, from the date of the New repair.
Don’t waist time, one day can make the difference...
Hope this information has been of help to you...
John Ray
P.S. Please check your LapTop battery’s for possible recalls.

Do not touch anything as this will void your warranty, return to retailer and demand an exchange or refund.
