Question about HP Computers & Internet
Led lights come on, can hear fan briefly,screen remains black. I was finally able to get into BIOS setup utility, tried to run self test (result: test status - No IDE Device) I tried changing boot order to hard drive in 1st position. Eventually got it to boot up,ran any and all Hp and Microsoft updates. Could not find a functioning restore point. I believe boot up issue started after trying to download converters so MS word could read a newer version of MS Word doc. Just changed boot order to CD and did start up with Recovery Disk in CD slot. Forced it to boot up, what can I do to resolve boot up issue at this point now that I'm back in?
You have more patience than I do. I'd load Linux on a flash drive (Mint or Ubuntu MATE are my current favorites) and see how well it ran on those, then install. HPs usually run Linux perfectly. You're not still running Vista, are you?
Most Linuxes come with LibreOffice so you can read and write all Microsoft proprietary formats; you can set it to save in .docx by default.

ok check this out, follow the two wires that come off the power switch to the motherboard, just take a flat head screwdriver and touch those two pins together and your pc will boot up. and to fix this all you have to do is go to your local pc shop (not some place like bestbuy) and ask them for an atx power switch, its an easy fix, if it doesnt fit exactly there is always hot glue.

HOW TO FIX YOUR DV6000/DV9000/DV2000/tx1000/tx2000
All the Problems described are Graphics Related..
Faulty Nvidia Chip..Both Intel And AMD Based Motherboards..Though More Common on the AMD..
The symptoms of the Laptop Powering on and Shutting Off Repeatedly..Or.. Powering On and Having No Video...Or... Power Strip Lights Up, Beeps,Shuts Down...Or..No Power At All...Or.. Intermittant Loss Of Wireless/Video Goes In And Out/Touchpad Slows and Freezes..
To Fix this issue, You will need to Reflow The Graphics Chip.
I will Explain In Full Detail As To The Correct Method Below....
HP DV6000/DV2000/DV9000 Compaq v2000 Video Chip Reflow Instructions
First Step Is Complete Disassembly Of All Parts And Components..
Remove RAM, Remove CPU, Of Course Remove Heatsink and Fan assembly.
Next Step is Insulating the Motherboard... You need to Protect The CPU area, The RAM area, Cover any plastic Plug ports.
Try to leave 1/4 inch area around the edge of the chip free of insulation.
To Insulate the Board.. I use thick pieces of Tin/Aluminum, you can fold up some aluminum foil (tin foil) About 4 folds thickness....
Now that you have your Motherboard Insulated... Make Sure There's Nothing Flamable Or Burnable Below the Motherboard... it will get quite hot underneath.
You will need a Heat Gun.. You can get one of these at your Local Home Improvement Store, they cost about $15 - $30.. You Will Use ONLY the LOW Heat Setting... I REPEAT..... USE ONLY THE LOW HEAT SETTING ....
Next You Will Need Some Coins.. Yes Coins..
8 Quarters and 2 Nickels... Put the 2 Nickels On the Bottom and Stack Quarters On Top...
Place The Stack Of 2 Nickels And 8 Quarters On Top Of The Graphics Chip...
The Reason for using the Coins: Using the coins serves a few purposes...
1) It Helps Transfers the heat Into The Chip More Evenly/Slowly
2) It Helps Hold The Heat Longer/Then Helps To Cool Slower
3) It Gives The Correct Amount Of Weight That Is Needed To Press The Chip
A Thing To Look Out For...
Hewlett Packard is nutorious for using the RED epoxy around the edge of the Graphics chip.. this epoxy is used to help secure the chip to the motherboard...
This is a process that is Hand Done at the Factory.. And Some Boards Will Have Only A Little Amount of this, Some Will Have Alot of it...And Some are Only Done On The Corner Edges....
If There Is Alot of This On Your Chip, You Might End Up Needing To Carefully (REAL CAREFULLY) Remove as much of this epoxy as able to....You can use a Razor Blade To Lightly Scrape This Off... DO NOT MISS AND SCRATCH THE MOTHERBOARD!!! Go SLOW...
Now Comes The Heating Of The Chip...
Start With The Heat Gun About 6 Inches Away From The Top Of The Quarter Stack..You want to be holding the gun at a 45% angle.. Aim the heat at the Edge of the chip, You Will Start Rotating Around the Chip- around the outer edge of the chip...then use tighter circles concentrating on the quarter stack, then after about 30-40 seconds, slowly move closer to the chip...
Never Move the Heat Gun Closer than the Top Of Your Coin Stack...Then Pull It Back And Slowly Repeat.. The Chip Needs To Get Hot Enough To Re-Melt The Solder Balls On The Underside Of The Graphics Chip Back Down To The Contact Pads On the Motherboard.. and this takes Quite Alot of heating to Do.... You Must Not OVERHEAT the CHip... It Is Best To Underheat it and have to Redo.. than to overheat.. It will cause the solder to break down and even crack/split.. causing failure forever...
This process will take about 3 minutes total.. Once you shut off the Heat Gun.. Leave The Stack of Coins On The Chip And Let Sit For Another 5 minutes..
Now Remove The Coins(carefull they might still be hot)
Remove All Insulation.. Reinstall RAM, CPU, Heatsink and FAN Assembly (and Of Course Thermal Pads or Paste.. Note:. If Paste Is Used.. It Must Be Silver Paste...
Now You Can Connect The Power Button Strip/ Video Cable And The DC Jack Cable.... And Plug In AC adapter .. You're Now Ready To Test For Solid Power and Video....
Upon Sucessful Chip Reflow/Rebake.... You Need To Go To The HP Website..( www.hp.com )..Click on SUPPORT AND DRIVERS, then select...DOWNLOAD DRIVERS AND SOFTWARE....Then either click the box to Auto-Detect System, Or Enter Your Make/Model Info, Once At The Page With All Of Your Drivers.... Choose The BIOS UPDATE Driver..
Choose The Newest Driver And Download/Install It... It Will Reboot The Laptop And Upon Rebooting, Your Fan Will Spin Faster And More Often Due To A Thermal Controller Update In The BIOS Update...
