Question about HP Pavilion dv9000z Notebook

1 Answer

Problem with black screen and possible operating system. I checked the HP website telling there is no operating system available for dv9000. When I restarted my HP dv9000, it goes to "start up repairing". It checked for a while, and came the language select that I defaulted to English; next came to the driver locating. This time there was no driver file in the window popped, then I tried to locate the driver sets in the popped system32, but there were no any files with set up information that defaulted to. Then I skipped the driver locating, and went to start up repair. It took about 10 minutes then said "finish". I clicked the"finish" button, and the computer restarted but with same process. This went a few times, and came to a black screen with a mouse arrow in the screen but movable. Your advices would be highly appreciated!

    Sounds like you are going to have to buy a copy of windows or contact hp if the computer is still under warranty. Either way you have to reinstall windows completely.

If at boot your system automatically launches a scandisk to repair problems with the file structure, that is a pretty reliable indication that the HDD is failing.

The errors with WIndows are caused by the files needed being located in sectors of the hard drive that can no longer be read.

The most likely resolution is replacing the HDD and reloading Windows and the drivers.

You can try booting to the XP CD, and go to recovery console and RUN CHKDSK /F but I'm pretty sure it will come back with unrecoverable errors and you still replace the HDD.

I need webcam software for hp pavilion dv9000 my operating system is windows 7 ultimate, plz send me the software , my webcam is not working

Go to this website

and click on the black button that says "Start Detection>" or you can input your exact computer information and manually look for the drivers. I apologize, but I can get anymore specific than that since there are many versions of the dv9000 series. I'm quite sure that the auto-detect button (that I described earlier) will solve your issues though!
I hope this helps! If it does not though, please comment back and let us know!

Hp pavilion dv9000 screen and factory settings

*Actually*, with regards to the screen issue, software CANNOT cause a failure when the display assembly is physically moved....The two possibilities are the LCD harness (video cable) part# 432962-001 OR the actual LCD itself (part# LP171WP4 (TL)(03) for most models). My money's on the cable, not a stupid driver...

 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.
