Question about HP Pavilion dv9000z Notebook

1 Answer

Very short freezes constantly

So i spilled a glass of wine on laptop keboard few weeks ago...i replaced keyboard and i worked fine for a while till now...now it freezes every 2 seconds only for a nanosecond...just long enugh to cause some letters to not type as you can see by spelling errors and when i move mouse across screen is is really jerky...not smooth like it should be....also if a noise plays it kinda freezes at spots and skips....when i had computer open there was not even a drop of wine on anything except in the keyboard....i only spilled very small amount...the reason i fixed keyboard myself is because best buy said it wasnt covered by my service plan for spilling on it....i hit f11 during boot up and restored to factory condition but that did nothing but actually made it slightly worse....any ideas....pleeeeease help me!!!

There was more damage than just the keyboard, your fault appears intermitten and possibly some connectors and sockets are not making good electrical contact. You need to dismantle the laptop completely to inspect and clean what ever you can with distilled water and let it dry throughly. It still may not work because there may be some electrical damage to some chips and components, especially if the laptop was running at the time of the wine spill.

There is not much help I can offer you except to advise you to buy another laptop, and if the hard drive in the old laptop is OK then buy a USB hard drive case and insert the laptop hard drive in this case and use it as an external USB hard drive. You need to delete all the old system files etc. to maxmise the hard disk space.

Hp g 60 keboard is not working


If you have windows 7, you could try to update the driver software for it. Most time the driver is not up to date.
Also you can reinstall the OS/windows again.
This may work for other OS too.
Another solution may be to boot up in safe mode. When computer is first turned on press F8 right before windows logo starts loading.
Try to use system restore to an earlier saved point when it was working.
This is another quick fix, if you are on a laptop, turn off the computer, unplug the AC adapter it, take out the battery, hold the power button to the right for 30 seconds, put the battery back in, plug the AC adapter back in, turn it on.
On pc, you will want to unplug the pc and the keyboard, wait a few seconds and plug them back in.
They should work now, then update the drivers right away, before they freeze again.
Good luck

A glass of wine was spilled on my laptop. It would still power up but the screen was black. Now it won't even power up. Is it worth getting repaired, or should I get a new one?


You should fully disassemble the laptop & thoroughly inspect its inside. Look for any traces of liquid on the circuit boards & on other components. On circuit boards, liquid damage appears in the form of whitish traces. These needs to be wiped off. This can be done using a tooth brush moistened with few drops of hand sanitizer liquid.
Check all internal connectors & make sure that no liquid seeped into them. Dry them if needed.
When you are done, re-assemble back the laptop.
If the liquid fell on the keyboard & you found out that the keyboard is no longer working, then you will have to replace the keyboard.

If it still does not work, the motherboard might be damaged & needs to be replaced.

Coffee on key board


Hey,

You need to replace the keyboard. Turn the laptop off. Dry the keyboard. fully. Hopefully the coffee is only on the keyboard and there wasn't enough coffee to get inside the computer.

So if after drying the keyboard completely it still doesn't function.
You need to get a replacement keyboard.

I just bought one from ebay few weeks ago www.ebay.com see if you can find one for your model.


Let me know if you need anything else.


Thanks,
Ekse

Hi Lizardo -

The best bet for resolving this problem would be to replace the keyboard. The part can be ordered easily on the internet. It's a replaceable part that's very simple to do.

Take care,
