Question about Computers & Internet
I bought this unit by auction as faulty thinking I may be able to fix-it..I have checked the power supply and its ok and the green LED is lit where the P/S plugs into the Motherboard..but other than that the unit is dead..SO..I have now removed the outer rear plastic cover and the M/B metal cover....Oh dear ?? what next...this is completely different to working on a normal desktop but I presume the same principals apply...IE disconnecting everything till the motherboard is isolated and then power up looking for any life ...But I am no expert so I would certainly welcome any advice that I can get...Thankyou
I know nothing of this laptop. Although I do have a Hp dv9000. Before you get to far I advise drawing "blue prints" and noting where the screws go and also their color and length. For example; I drew a rectangle and drew landmarks. Then used solid dots to represent black screws and circles to represent silver screws. And maybe a slash beside or through them to represent a longer screw. But youtoube has many dissasembley videos, and I'm sure you can find your model.

Try removing the battery. It might be damaged and overloading the laptop. Also, before you replug the AC cord, press power for at least 5 seconds.

SOURCE: Dead motherboard
bad news - an overheated F500 is a really expensive paperweight. All you can really do is try and source a new motherboard and hope the CPU and RAM didn't go the way the board did...

Below is a link to the service and maintenance guide. This will serve as a reference for disassembly. It is free to use, copy and print. It is in PDF format. I would check the voltage at the tip of the adapter to make sure it is putting out the proper voltage. I have seen plenty if failures with the HP laptops at the DC jack area, in most cases these jacks are connected to the motherboard by a cable and plug, which makes them easier to service than the soldered type. Here is your guide........
