Laptop disassembly is a tricky/hard process but does not have to be if you are prepared. Only you can judge your comfortability with doing the process. I will share my techniques with you and you decide if you want to proceed. I have been doing IT repair for 10 years, but I had to start on that first laptop at some time. If it is still under warranty I would advise against opening it since that would void the warranty. But since you are considering it I am assuming that it is out of warranty. Here is what I do when I disassemble a laptop. You have to be very methodical in doing this and have uninterupted time to do this. You would ideally want to be able to reassemble the laptop the same day. Get a piece of sturdy cardboard. Have a nice workspace that is uncluttered and some tools. I bought a nice computer repair tool kit from staples for $30. Look for one that has small screwdrivers and buy a set of picks. Plus I picked up a specialty screwdriver set that had various bits.
Draw a rough picture of the bottom of the laptop and the screw locations on the cardboard. As you remove one screw at a time stick it into the cardboard in the appropriate location. Some screws hide under labels on the bottom of the laptop. One major caveat - Do not excessively force things while doing repairs on laptops as it is easy to break things. When undoing connectors look carefully at them and try to determine how they come apart by looking at them good before attempting to disconnect. Most ribbon cables have a little plastic piece you have to lift up to release, although if you pull hard enough they will come out (not recommended). I also use a small pick for undoing the plastic clip connectors that connect a lot of the plastic parts of the case. Do this slow disassembly, drawing on cardboard the locations of screws, taking pictures can also help. I make about 20 drawings by the time I am down to the motherboard. As you remove parts set them aside, in order of disassembly, on your worktable. Make sure your cats are barred from the work area! As I disassemble each part I put a number beside it on my cardboard and any notes that help describe where things go. If some part does not come off easily, do not force it. Look very hard to find out what is holding it. Some screws also hide behing the rubber feet or little rubber nubs. You will have to remove almost all parts of the laptop to change out the motherboard so it will be a long process. Attention to detail is very important! Assembly is the reverse of the disassembly. It helps if you are mechanically inclined and like to take things apart. So as you can see, This will be a challenging project. I have disassembled over 20 laptops and I still do the same procedure with each laptop as each one is different. Good luck and let us know the outcome.

Unless you are very comfortable working with computer hardware and have a good knowledge of your product I would recommend having a cerified tech replace a motherboard. It would be a level 8 I would say out of 10 with 10 being the hardest. Hope this helps.

My usb ports don't work. I was told the problem is with my motherboard. Is it worth fixing; is there another way to fix it. hp pavilion dv1000


It does indeed sound like there is an issue with the motherboard. On a laptop, almost everything is part of the motherboard, so when one part on it goes bad, typically the whole board needs to be replaced. That said, given the age of the laptop, a new purchase would be advised over repair. If neither is a good option for you right now, you could consider adding new USB ports to the laptop via a "PC Card" expansion. An example of this product can be found here:

It is not difficult to install, and slides into the side of your laptop. There is probably a plastic placeholder there now to keep the slot covered.

Please let me know if you have any more questions.

Thank you.

I want the replacement motherboard part 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

My keboard, mousepad and all softkeys including the power button hang intermittently usually while I am typing up a document. I have already torn the laptop apart to mother board level and reseated all...

backup your data and re install operating system along with latest drivers, install latest firmware for motherboard and restore bios to defaults
rate this as a fix if it resolves the issue please.
Also if none of that works then there is something wrong possibly with the motherboard or else where.

Power issues on HP DV1000

It is possible you have two dud batteries. Recharageable batteries have a limited life, they have a finite number of charge and discharge cycles.
With the battery removed and only the power supply connected and the laptop powered up, when you touch the connector on the laptop and the laptop does not shut down then the laptop connector is OK.

If you can verify your new battery is OK the the fault could be the power supply adapter, if may not produce enought current to run and charge the battery. Try charging the battery overnight by turning off the laptop and leaving on the mains t charge. Borrow a mains adapter and test it on your computer.

You can also check the BIOS setting for power management, ie. hibernate, low power shut down etc.

You have to look for a bad connection on MB. You have a broken trace from openning and closing. You need micro-soldering iron to fix it.
