Re: My hp pavilion dv 9000 does not start.
Does Hp screen come on? If not I doubt its the hard drive. I had the same problem. But I did a reflow.. (not smart) I was excited when it got me to windows. But it still crashes. Now Ive taken it apart at least 4 times addinx copper and silver compound. And checking connections. Obviously I'm in way over my head. Now it won't start for anything. Another reflow did nothing. My advice. Reseat the ram and do a hard reset ( take out battery and unplug ac power. Press and hold power for 30 Sec or more. Plug ac only in. Leave battery out. Press power.) If this does nothing. Then its definatley your nvidia chip or motherboard. Don't make my mistake. Take it to a pro or scrap it
Hard drives are cheap. Find out what type of drive this supports (i.e. ATA or SATA), and buy a new drive. They're quite easy to replace, too. You'll just need a recovery CD to re-install your OS (operating system) after you put in your new drive.

It will recognize the new drive if you were able to "migrate" your data from the old drive. If not, you can clean install by booting from an optical drive (changing your boot order at start-up) and using a new OS disk or your recovery disks. You might be able to perform a remote partition & format and install from one drive to the other with USB external enclosures for each drive and another computer (depending on the 100G drive's condition). I hope this helps.
Reboot and as soon as it starts to boot up repeatedly hit the F8 key until you see it come up to a screen with options. Select the repair option and from there you can select to restore to factory settings.
Hello jarkk, I believe your problem is with your backlight inverter. the hard drive should be installed for this process of checking it on an external monitor. with the hard drive removed it will not boot to the operating system. with the drive in, use the external monitor. if the monitor works when plugged into the external monitor plug, this will eliminate a bad video card. if the screen is still black on the laptop screen, replace your backlight inverter. the last case cenario is to make sure your backlights are not burnt out.
Your HDD may be the problem, but not one that I would attribute to this noise. It sounds like based on the information I have been given you may have some device issues steming from your keyboard. You may want to consider replacing that! This is only speculation. I need more information, like when did it start, how long, did you install anything different on it? Basic questions like that! Let me know!
If windows still boots ( and the original hard drive is still in the computer) you can click the start button and find the HP Recovery Manager under the All Programs list. It is probably tucked away under one of the HP tabs.
If windows doesn't boot, and you still have the original hard drive you can press F11 when your first turn it on at the HP logo screen. It should start the recovery program. (The F key can be different on different laptops but most recent HP's are F11)
Be careful, doing a System Restore will erase all your Data, so backup anything important!
