Question about HP Pavilion dv6000z Notebook

Small electrical chocks

Hi
i just bought a new HP pavilion dv5 (model d5-1155ee), it has been 2 weeks

I noticed a small electrical shock on the left corner under the keyboard

i took it last week to where i bought it from, they said it is a common problem, when you plug it in a socket where the "earthing" is not connected in a correct manner, specially that the notebook is all metal

i've tried it in all my apartment's sockets, same problem, i can't feel my left fingers no more

Any solutions please?
Could this be a logical cause of the problem?

thx

Yes it happens. It happens on my laptop as well but it should not be enough to shock you and should not happen. my best suggestion return the laptop. My laptop is a Compaq and yes you will see small sparks when you plug it in but NOT on the keyboard itself. Its a design flaw. Id also suggest contact HP directly and tell them about this.

They overheat easily, causing so many issues.
Get a new laptop. If you fix it, it will happen again. Not worth the money
Don't hate on HP's. Get any laptop with Intel graphics.. you will be fine.

Hp pavilion dv5-1125nr dvd player does not read cds or dvds it spins i did drop the laptop can i remove and reinstall the drive and try that? how?


Yes you should try that if you really think it is broken. Make sure you pull the DVD drive slowly and carefully. Also make sure you know how to take it out. You don't want to break it.

3. remove the battery
and after press and hold the power button for 60 seconds without any charger and the battery.After the 60 seconds replug the battery and the charger and turn the computer .

The screen on my HP Pavilion dv 1000 is too dark. The probem extends 2/3's from the left and almost 1/4 of the screen from the left. It's becoming so bad I barely can read the screen. Thre problem seems to...


If turning up the brightness hasn't helped then the lcd is likely going to fail soon.

option 1: hook it up to an external monitor.
option 2: Look for a replacement lcd on e-bay
option 3: Get a new laptop

HP will charge a lot for the display if they even still stock it.

Hope this helps.

I bought HP Pavilion dv5 6 months ago and fan not working


Your cooling fan sounds to have went out,causing it to overheat and shut down.It also could be something in the fan stopping it from turning.Try cleaning it or blowing it out with it off.But it mostly sounds to have went out.
