Question about HP Pavilion dv9000z Notebook

1 Answer

Key board not working

Turned on my Pavilion dv9000 17" (Vista Home Premium). Rather than going to the screen where I enter my Password to open my desk top, a black screen with the HP Invent logo appears with the following at the bottom of the page:

Press to enable startup message, to enter system information, to change boot device order, to startup check, to enter SETUP, to System Recovery. I tried a couple of the above and the password screen appears. I lrft click my mouse to set the cursor in the Password box and then type in my password and nothing shows (no text appears as I type), cursor just sits there. As it is, I cannot get into my lap top. Cannot get any characters to show in the Password box and so here I am wondering if anyone can help this not so savy old guy with his lap top problem.

Thanks to all,
Jim

    Try hitting F9 and change boot device to hard drive you will see it come up as an option. If you cannot access any of the options because it is asking for a password then you are locked out. The purpose of a BIOS password is so no one can enter the system. I cannot answer how it got that way I can only provide conjecture based on what you are telling me. If you need further assistance let me know.

It's a hardware issue,
Maybe RAM or hard drive..

Did you get it used? If so the password was set b4 you purchase it, and will not show up when you type,,,It stays hidden.

Your getting this screen because there is a hardware failure. Fix the problem and you wont need the BIOS password.

Press<esc> to enable startup message, This should give you more info on the problem.

Instaling windows 7 in vaio laptop have vista orginal windows how solving the problem in instaling windows 7?


if your system came with vista originally the issue would be is you would need to know what version of vista you have on your system, the version makes the difference if you have vista home premium then your windows 7 should be a win7 Home premium as well, because if you are upgrading vista using your win7 disc and your windows version are different for example you have vista Home premium and your win7 is win7 ultimate and you do an upgrade the problem will be your product key,

but if you have a retail version of win7 and you are installing it on your laptop Vaio insert the disc in the DVD-drive win7 needs a DVD reader to be able to install win7 if you have a cd-rom it wont work, then turn the laptop off power it back up keep on tapping f12 it should bring you a boot menu, select ODD or which ever is your dvd drive then press enter then enter again if it says on the screen press any key to boot to CD, this should begin win7 installation on the screen saying windows is loading files the so on ans so fort ^_^ this will over write everything in vista but in win7 it will still create a windows.old folder from vista only from the my documents folder my picture and my music and my video and desktop Items but remember application icons will not work on win7 you may need to reinstall the program again for it to work on win7 and yeah make sure that you choose custom/advance in the selection screen do no select upgrade unless you vista and win7 are the same version eg. Vista Home premium / Win7 Home premium ^_^

I cannot reboot my acer computer because the admin. password was changed, and I do not have the Vista disk either.


Could you please let me know do you have administrator password, by rebooting the computer in safe mode (F8 Key at logo appear). If yes then revert quickly.. so that we can figure it out....

OR

Try This..

Warning If you use an administrator account to reset the password, you will permanently lose access to any e‑mail messages or encrypted files that are on that account.
Note These steps cannot be completed on Windows Vista Starter, Windows Vista Home Basic, and Windows Vista Home Premium.
  1. Log on to the administrator account that you will use to reset the forgotten password.
  2. Open Local Users and Groups by clicking the Start button , typing lusrmgr.msc into the Search box, and then pressing ENTER. If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.
  3. Double-click Local Users and Groups, and then click Users.
  4. Right-click the account that you need to reset the password for, and then click Set Password.
  5. Type and confirm the new password.

"This Copy of Windows is Not Valid"


You must activate your copy of Windows. Good old Micro$soft has Vista connect to the internet and automatically check to see if you have registered your copy. Since you had to reinstall, it now thinks you have a duplicate (and illegal) copy. So now you'll have to spend an hour or so on the phone to get another key.

Microsoft is the only place to get product keys for Microsoft products.

The product key on the label on the bottom of the laptop will only work for the version of Windows that was installed on that laptop.
You can purchase an upgrade Windows Vista Ultimate and to use in conjunction with the existing Vista Home Premium.

How do we remove balloon tips from vista home?


Here is how to disable balloon tips in windows vista.

Click start and go to run. Type gpedit.msc (this is used to open group policy) and press enter. Now open User configuration, then Administrative template after that start Manu and finally Taskbar.

Now choose remove balloon tips, right click with mouse and open properties.

Now in option enable it and click ok. Close the gpedit and reboot the system.

Congratulation you have disable your awful balloon tips in windows vista.

Gpedit.msc is not available in windows vista home and premium edition’s not to worry we can do the same from registry in windows vista home and premium edition.

Again go to run (windows key + R) and type regedit and press enter.

Expand registry to HKEY_CURRENT_USER >> SOFTWARE > Microsoft>> Windows > Current Version>> Explorer > Advanced.
Right click and create new Dword value and give name as EnableBalloonTips.
Give value as 0(zero)

I went to dell and put in the ID Tag # for my unit then downloaded the newest WLAN driver and installed it. This has fixed the problem. I did not nor could I have guessed that this was the cause. After reading about it in other forums, all pointed me to the download and it worked.
