Question about HP Pavilion dv6605us Notebook

1 Answer

Computer starts, attempts to load display, crashes, restarts.

It's really just as the title says.
My HP Pavilion dv6605us notebook crashes when it starts up.
Here's what happens.

1)Press power
2)Wait for display to turn on.
3)Display turns on for less than one second.
4)Computer immediately shuts off
5)Computer turns on by itself after 5 seconds.

The only way I can get the display working and booting into windows is by pressing some of the F-keys while the computer is activating the display. I have no idea why that works.

This is what happened before this problem.
I came home, and my computer was hibernated as usual.
I pulled a flash drive out of the usb while the computer was resuming from hibernation. (might be a factor)
The computer didn't boot up after several minutes, so I held the power button to force it down.
Retried, then it did the whole crashing process.

Only later did I figure out that it starts by hitting the F-keys.
It's fully functional after that.
But why can't I start up normal, without pressing F-keys???

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.

    My Hp Pavilion dv5000 crashed! XP cd displays error message!

    If you are facing this issue while installing Windows, Most probably there is an issue with the memory card. If you have two memory modules try to use one of the memory modules in each slot at a time. If you have only one memory stick then try to use it one by one on each slot. If you it does not work then probably you might have to replace the memory stick.

    Hope you find this information helpful.

    Thank you for choosing Fixya

    Wireless connection

    I had sortof the same problem with my hpdv8000 pavilion laptop..I ended up calling the phone company that I have my DSL with and trouble shooting with them the connection. I had to get rid of one connection and start a whole new one. Until it recognized the new connection. If you call HP they will charge you $9.95 to trouble shoot your computer. Both together were really helpful in getting my computer back up and running. I also had to add the drivers back in. The disc was bought from HP My computer crashes regularly..I believe that I got a lemon....Hope this helps..The info is online under
