Sounds like the technician that replaced your motherboard and/or CPU didn't hook up the little ribbon connector that powers those LEDs or Speakers.

the mic itself is in the screen part of the laptop, right? And the speakers are in the "bottom" part of the unit?

wow.

    You'll have to disassemble the laptop around the area in question to get at the ribbon cable. Unless it is absolutely critical, I'd leave it along, especially now that you have sound.

Flashing lights right top of keyboard and left middle. This is no video or booting. tried new cpu doesn't fix problem.


Sad to say a common problem with the dv series in general is a bad motherboard/video card.
Easiest fix is to either send it under warranty, or order a new motherboard as the video card is integrated into the mother board.

Blue screen when left idle for period of time


Ouch, the Blue Screen of Death most likely. This can mean a lot of different problems, mainly in the hardware, either your C.P.U. is overheating, or your C.P.U., Mother Board or CMOS/BIOS has a short circuit. It can also mean your Hard Disk Drive is damaged. But you're here for solutions, not reasons:
1) Backup all your data from your Disk Drive in any method you can, then format your Disk Drive and reinstall everything.
2) Get a new computer, sounds harsh and expensive,but if the problem lies on the hardware, it will not be easily or cheaply repairable (if at all). A new C.P.U. is almost as expensive (if not more) than a new computer, a new Mother Board might not be compatible with your current hardware (HDD, RAMs, ROMs,etc) and the CMOS/BIOS is irreplaceable (embedded in the Mother Board). So buying a new computer might actually be cheaper.
3) Get a new Disk Drive, install everything in it,copy the data from the old Disk Drive and use the new one as your main Disk Drive. This is recommended only if the problem is found directly to be in the Disk Drive.

My screen monitor flickers almost every second.what should i do?it is very disturbing.


There can be fault in the inverter drive, the back light circuit or the main power board.
You will need to open the mother board and check on all leads on the mother board- use a magnification observing lens.
Tighten all connectors and solder suspected joints. Check with an external display to confirm the display circuit and then pin point to the display unit in detail of the drive section.

I have an HP dv6 1350us. I just replaced the brackets on the screen and put it back together. I then plugged in the ac cord to the dc jack and the light (on the right side next to the jack) comes on, but...


You may have helped with the last drop in the "chip creep" effect and broken the contact between the motherboard and the power regulating chip. This is a common problem on Toshiba and HP laptop motherboards, here's how to repair this Maxim 1987 power chip problem. This Maxim chip regulates the voltage for every component on the board, and if it gets desoldered in at least one spot, then the motherboard just won't work.
It's basically a design flaw and it's nobody's fault (OK, it's HP's fault), and I'm sure you can pull off the repair, just stick to the instructions.

I am thinking about trying a cpu upgrade on my D800. It currently has a Pentium M at 1.60 ghz. What the best upgrade chip that will work? Thanks in advance.


I doubt if that can be done as most lap tops have the CPU soldered in and very close pin spacings preclude some one replacing without destroying the mother board. if you have never taken a lap top apart, you are in for a treat as the machines do not come apart easily

Removing files from a dead lap top


If the computer is dead the only way to recover the files would be to remove the hdd & install it as a secondary hdd in another system in order to copy the files. After you are sure all your data is copied you could then either reformatt & keep as a storage drive in other system or remove. You'll need the proper cables as most laptop hdd's just slide into a built in port on the laptop's mb. Hope this helps.

ZV500 power plug problem


I've repaired alot of laptops... One thing that I found works the best is get 3 bowls or dishes.... Label them; 'Top', 'Bottom', and 'Logic'. Almost all laptops require you start disassembly at the base of the unit. Unscrew every single screw you see, make sure there are none left before you start on the top. The way alot of laptops are set up is that you unscrew the bottom, pop off the top casings/covers then unscrew the top screws. Once you've removed all the screws from the top and the bottom, there will be very little attaching the casings, so be careful. Remember to Unplug everything you see attached to the logic(mother) board, or you risk ripping a fixture off the board. Once you have freed the logic(mother) board from the attachments and casings you should very careful.

Now as you start work on the power jack, I Highly recommend you use a solder wick and flux to remove any solder left on the board from the previous repair. It is never a good idea to leave old solder on the board. You should be careful with the solder you don't want to short anything out by using to much solder. Once you have finished your repairs to the DC jack you should test it out plug it in to the AC Adapter and look for any visual indicators of life(i.e. charge batt light).... So now you know it works.

If you get it back together and it suddenly doesn't work its possible you have a case short. If thats the case look on the metal casing for any discolorations or blackness and if you find any place some electrical tape over it... it should be fine.

Good Luck. Don't be nervous its not as hard as it seems.

Hope this helps lemme know if you have any questions.

Compare which is better hpDV900 amd -HPDV2000 intel


IF THE CONFIGURATION STATED BY YOU IS CORRECT THEN I WOULD SURELY GO FOR DV2000 BEACUSE OF HIGHER MEMORY(3 GB) AND AN INTEL PROCESSOR BECAUSE THE AMD PROCESSOR OF DV 9000 WILL GET SO HEATED AFTER ABOUT AN HOURS USE THAT YOU WONT BE ABLE TO KEEP IT ON YOUR LAP ... HOWEVER I STILL DOUBT THE CONFIGURATION .. CAUSE ACCORDING TO ME THE CONFIG OF DV2000 IS INTEL CORE 2 DUO T5500 1.66GHZ 1GB RAM AND 100GB HDD WHICH IS NOT AT ALL PREFERABLE BY ME
