Found this while looking for Battery Release Latch. You may find it interesting,

Latch is part of the Base Enclosure. (Bottom Cover)

Point?
From where I sit, (Computer chair at my house.....), it looks as though you may have to disassemble, to access where the Battery Release Latch goes, to reinstall.

How do i open dv7-1451nr?


Instructions

1

Shut the Pavilion dv7 down and close the screen. After unplugging all cables from the computer, turn it over and remove the battery.
2

Unscrew the six Phillips-head screws holding the large T-shaped panel to the bottom of the Pavilion dv7. Remove the panel and set it aside.
3

Remove the keyboard locking screw--marked by a keyboard-shaped icon--from the top part of the compartment exposed when you removed the T-shaped panel. Reserve the screw.
4

Remove the black Phillips-head screw from next to the wireless adapter inside the T-shaped compartment. This screw holds the Pavilion dv7 optical drive in place.
5

Pull the Pavilion dv7 optical drive gently out of its bay, and then remove the two Phillips-head screws from inside the empty drive bay. Reserve the screws.
6

Remove the Phillips-head screw next to the circular intake fan vent in the corner of the Pavilion dv7.
7

Remove the five Phillips-head screws from inside the empty battery compartment. You should now have removed 16 screws in all. Turn the Pavilion dv7 over and open the screen.
8

Insert a spudger or other flat plastic tool into the seam between the speaker grille and computer casing on the right side of the Pavilion dv7. Gently pry up to begin removing the speaker grille from the computer. As you do this, move the spudger to a new location to pry different areas until the grille is completely disconnected. Mind the ribbon cable connecting the center of the speaker grille to the logic board, and do not lift the grille any higher from the computer than the cable allows.
9

Push both sides of the speaker grille cable lock forward until the cable slides easily out of the logic board connector. Set the speaker grille aside.
10

Remove the four Phillips-head retaining screws above the top row of the Pavilion dv7 keyboard. Lift the keyboard up and forward, and place it face-down on the palm rest.
11

Unlock the Pavilion dv7 keyboard cable connector using the same method as for the speaker grille connector. Slide the cable out of the connector, remove the keyboard and set it aside.
12

Place the new Pavilion dv7 keyboard upside-down on the palm rest. Slide the keyboard into the connector, close the lock and rotate the keyboard down into the computer. Replace the four Phillips-head screws.
13

Slide the speaker grille cable into the connector and close the cable lock. Push the speaker grille into its original position above the Pavilion dv7 keyboard. Press gently on all parts of the speaker grille until it is flush with the computer casing.
14

Close the screen and turn the computer over. Replace the five screws inside the battery compartment, the screw next to the intake fan vent, the two screws inside the empty optical drive bay and the screw inside the T-shaped compartment.
15

Replace the t-shaped panel on the bottom of the Pavilion dv7 and its six screws.
16

Slide the optical drive back into its bay and replace the securing screw.

Need the manual for hp pavilion notebook dv7-4008ca & downloaded


HP Support > Pavilion dv7-4008ca Notebook PC > Main Support page,

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/product?cc=us&lc=en&dlc=en&product=4230711


Click on Manuals in the list.

Click on -
HP Pavilion dv7 Entertainment PC - Maintenance and Service Guide
,for a Service Manual.

Click on -
Notebook PC User Guide - Windows 7
,for a User Manual

These are PDF files.
The computer you are using now has Adobe Reader on it, which uses PDF files.
After you click on the manual file name you want, it may take up to 30 seconds before the first page comes up.
(Just wanted you to know while you are staring at a blank screen.
The file is downloading to your computer)

The download is a Temporary download. Once you close the PDF file, you have to go back, and download it again, to see it.

At the top right of the top header is a Floppy Disk icon.
It is the third icon from the left. If you hover your mouse cursor over it, Save a copy, will be briefly revealed.

Click on the Floppy Disk icon.
In the Save File box look to see where the file will download to.
Desktop: Goes to your desktop screen.
Documents: Goes to your Documents folder
Downloads: Goes to your Downloads folder.

You can click on the blue Down Arrow to the right, and in the list click on where you wish the file to download to.
I put them in my Documents folder.
(Actually I am running WinXP right now, so they go to my My Documents folder. Win Vista, and Win 7 it's -> Documents)

In the File name: box below, write down the file name.
Or,
Click in this box, and type what you want.
(Pavilion dv7 User Manual, or Pavilion dv7 Service Manual?)

Now go below, and click on Save File. (OK?)

From there put a new CD-R disk in the optical drive (CD/DVD drive), and then Right-click on the file name. Click on Copy.

The reason I do not just directly copy to disk, from the HP PDF file, is if there is a problem I want to have the file handy. I can start over.

(After checking that the disk has a good copy on it, you can then delete the file from the computer you downloaded it on, and save harddrive space on that computer)

For additional questions please post in a Comment.

HP dv7-4165dx keeps shutting down


When does it shut down? Does it boot up and allow you to do anything? If it allows you to do some things then maybe it is running hot and shuts down or a virus is shutting it down. Give us more details on when it shuts down and what was going on when it shut down.

How do I remove/replace the keyboard from a HP Pavillion dv7-2277cl


1. Remove 6 screws from the bottom of the case (as shown). These screws hold the accessory cover.

2. Remove one screw securing the CD/DVD drive. Slide the CD/DVD drive to the left to disconnect it from the motherboard. Remove the CD/DVD drive.

3. Remove all marked screws from the bottom of the notebook.
The yellow circled screws secure the keyboard cover, and the green one secures the HP Pavilion DV7 keyboard.

4. Turn the computer display-side up and open it as far as possible. Insert a guitar pick or small flat screwdriver between the keyboard cover and case and slowly move along the side.

5. Lift the keyboard cover. Be careful, it's still connected to the motherboard. Release the zero insertion force (ZIF) connector and disconnect the cable from the LED board. Remove the keyboard cover.

6. Remove the four screws that secure the HP Pavilion DV7 keyboard.

7. Lift the rear edge of the HP Pavilion DV7 keyboard until it rests at an angle. Slide the keyboard back to disengage the tabs on the front edge of the keyboard from the top cover and rest it on the display.

8. Release the ZIF connector to which the keyboard cable is attached and disconnect the keyboard cable. Remove the HP Pavilion DV7 keyboard.

Hi i have just got a new Pavilion DV7 only a few weeks old on boot/start up it starts then goes off several times before it starts to load windows the fan starts and the lights come on then goes off...


Run CHKDSK/F to check for errors. There may be an error on the hard drive.
Closing the lid when closing down, puts it in sleep mode and it will restart much easier but the error should be removed.

Pavilion dv7 keeps shutting down


  • This may not fix your issue but its worth a try ...let me know how it goes
  • If the computer appears to shutdown and then attempt to restart without displaying an error message, do the following to disable the automatic restart on error setting.
    1. Click Start , right-click Computer , and then select Properties .
    2. Click Advanced system settings , grant permission to continue if prompted, and then click the Advanced tab.
    3. Click Settings in the Startup and Recovery section of the Advanced tab.
    4. Deselect the Automatically restart checkbox under System failure .
    5. Click OK to close the Startup and Recovery window, click OK again to close the System Properties window, and then close the Control Panel window.
    6. Restart the PC.
    Disabling the automatic restart setting allows time to view the error message that displays on the screen. Contact the manufacturer of the program or device that is causing the error for specific information about the error message.

    HP Pavilion Laptop shutsdown randomly, need help.


    This looks like a bad memory stick. That looks like a memory address where the error occurs. Keep track of the messages you get and see if they are similar. If it's a memory address you may run the computer for quite some time or a short time till you use enough system resourses to fill up the ram to that bad address then it will die. The confusing part is it shows the program or device that was loaded into ram that failed and sometimes you think it's that program or device rather than the ram that caused it. In this example it shows possibly 4 addresses. 40000080 8A57DAD0 89FF6F30 8A234F44
    Three of those are pretty close together. If you see more that start with 8A or 8B I'm maybe right.
