Hp pavillion dv9000 power input jack lights up and power is getting to mother board but it wont power up

Computer does not boot up The problem maybe the RAM, it is faulty or just needs reseating to make proper electrical contact.
Reseat the RAM and then boot up your laptop. If it still does not boot up then remove the RAM module/s and take them to your friendly computer repair shop and get them to test the RAM for you.

This is a motherboard problem. You'll need to replace it. Although, it may be cheaper just to buy a new PC (eMachines are never very expensive, or well-made for that matter)

How can i recover the bios

Flash Recovery-Config Some motherboard makers incorporate a flash recovery-config jumper or boot block recovery jumper on their motherboards. This can often be used to recover from a bad or failed flash. On most machines a small segment of the flash ROM does not get overwritten when you perform a normal flash update. This small portion of code contains a basic boot block which can enable the machine to reload another BIOS from floppy disk.
If you have a laptop or desktop without a floppy. You can either fit a floppy in the conventional manner or in some cases a USB floppy or CD-ROM can be used.

Wont turn on

Laptops are far more prone to be taken out by even minor power surges then anything else in your home, including desktop computers.
If you have any method (multimeter etc) to check the voltage from the power supply you may have been lucky and it took the bullet to save the laptop.
If the power is registering in the correct range, around 18volts, then chances are your laptop has taken the hit and the motherboard is gone.
If this is the case, then before you throw it against the nearest wall, take it to a laptop repair centre. It "may" have been saved by a fuse on the motherboard and therefore protected itself as best it could.
Prices to have it looked at will vary alot, so call around.

HP DV4000 power problems


This is a very common our shop we have replaced hundreds of power jacks.

I would recommend you send this in for service ASAP as it could cause further damage...even to your mainboard. The jack itself is about $5.00 but the labor can vary upto about $500.00

We charge a flat rate of $129.00 in one of our shops. Make sure whoever you have fix this has experience as your laptop will have to be taken completly apart and your main board removed.

Good luck myfriend.

PC Won't Power Up

I'd guess the problem is either the hard drive connector in the bay (trying putting in the original drive and seating it very solidly) or else the motherboard hard drive controller (rare problem). You can diagnose which of these it might be by putting the hard drive back in and then booting into the BIOS (F10 or delete at boot up) and then investigating whether the hard drive is being correctly identified by the BIOS. If it is, run any tests or AUTO options it has to see if the BIOS can contact the drive properly. Then, step through the BIOS settings and try turning on and off settings like SMART FOR HARD DRIVE and so forth and rebooting in cycles after every change. It is also possible that with the power problems you've described, the BIOS got reset and may need tweaking to get it working again. If you see evidence t might be a BIOS reset problem (for example, the system clock is crazy wrong), try to LOAD SAFE DEFAULTS AND EXIT option in the BIOS. If you test it all this way and find no problems, and you can access the drive normally on another machine, it is probably the motherboard IDE controlled. Will it boot from a CD/DVD? They are usually on the same IDE channel and so failure to boot from a CD tells you something is wrong in the hardware.

Good luck...
