    I've seen this happen when someone tried to install softpack 3. Any chance you had done that?

Ok when I had that problem it eventually quit working altogether.

How long have you had that laptop? I was told by HP that certain dv9000 models have Bad motherboards leading me to believe yours might be going. I recommend going to hp.com and going to support and talking to a HP Technician to see if this is truly the case and if it is get a box there to ship it in and get it fixed.

I had to send mine in when my motherboard went on me.

Your video card is going bad. This is a common problem with the HP dv models. The video chip overheats then goes bad, you need a motherboard replacement and when they do replace it they need to add an extra copper shim to keep this from happening again!

When i put the wireless on it doesnt pick the signal or light the wi-fi system.


Hello Guest, typically (not always) when the laptop doesn't pick up the signal you need only to reboot your ISP's router and the wireless router and the pc to make it work. I remember it in my head as 3,2,1. Let me explain.

I turn everything off the pc and router or routers if you have two. Wait three mins and turn on only the router or modem that your ISP (ex: fios or time warner) gave you. Then turn on your wireless router and wait two mins. Then finally turn on your pc and wait a min. 321 :) . If that doesn't help there is a pinhole in the back of the wireless router press and hold that button for ten seconds the lights on the front typically stay constant for a few seconds then go off. That should get you going.

Wont power on.


i had this problem a few days ago actually. your computer, especially because its a laptop could be overheated. this could have killed your CPU(central power unit) inside of your computer. I would just wait about three days or so after keeping it in a moderate temperature and then try to turn it back on again. Thats what I did and as you can tell min is Working! please rate my answer I would really appreciate it!

It wont stay on


Hi Kimberley,
Looking at your brief description of the problem a possible fault may lie with power supply and or battery.
Have you access to another Armada power supply? if not does the light go green when Pc is turned off and fully charged.
I would be looking in these area's for the problem.
Good Luck,
