The dv1000's were a limited edition notebook withmany issues. the motherboard going on them was one of them. connect the motebook to a desktop monitor if you have one and simultaneously press Fn + F4 to use the monitor as a screen. If nothing happens begin crying. Time to buy a new laptop. You information is safe but you need an IDE/SATA PCI adapter to view the files on another computer. If you were using XP, i hope you didn't password protect it making it private. That will be problem number 2.
I'd try wiping and reinstalling the operating system or booting from a linux live-cd first to see if it's a windows issue or hardware issue. In the end though, yes I believe the motherboard is probably faulty.
Check and make sure the Voltage on the AC adapter is the exact same as your previous one. Just because the connector fits in the port, doesn't mean it's the right one. Look in your manual to figure out if your AC adapter voltage is correct. If it is, it's possible that you have a dead battery, it happens when surges happen during power outages. If it's so, look on the HP website for a new replacement battery. It should allow you to type in your pavillion model number.
The part number you posted on the FixYa site is correct for a replacement board. It is actually designed for the DV1300 series but will work iin many DV1000 series notebooks. If you get on E-Bay and put that part number in the search box, you will find many that are for sale and under 120 bucks. Good luck
Well, I believe the reason why it isn't working is because:
The backlight only works when your at the dark or at a low light condition.
If not press "fn" and press the backlight increaser on the top of the keyboard.
Does this computer KB work alright in SAFE mode? If it does then drivers and/or viruses are the problem. If it doesn't work in SAFE mode then it could be drivers and or keyboard. Now try booting into BIOS. At the date prompt you usually can type any keyboard letter. If the keyboard works here, then you definately have driver/virus issues. If not replace the keyboard.
This is generally a sensitivity issue with the keyboard. It's usually caused when the rubber depressors that activate each key start getting worn. Sometimes you can take each key off individually, take off the rubber depressor and clean the contact point on the keyboard and up inside the depressor where it makes contact. Clean it with with rubbing alcohol and Q-tips. This is alot of work and only fixes the problem about 60% of the time. Your only other option is replacing the keyboard.
