Question about HP Pavilion dv4305us Notebook

1 Answer

Water got into my hp dv4305us laptop which I didn't know about and I turned it on. The monitor did not come on nor did I hear the clattering of the hard drive.When I felt the top of the laptop, I realized it got wet in the rain. So I turned it off and tried to dry it.This was 2 weeks ago. I tried it again and it still doesn't work.Please help me to try to fix it. I can't afford to buy another one.

    I'm going to try it. Thank you very much for your prompt response. I'll let you know if it works.

    Thank you very much Paul it worked. My laptop is up and working when I'm plugged in. When I use it on battery (full charged) my harddrive does not work. Before the water my battery was working well. Do you think I need to replace my battery? Again Paul thank you so very much for all your help. I recommend you and this site to everyone.

Hi there, I deal with water on laptops a lot. Even though my answer on this is for a Dog **** on a laptop, it really is the same exact information. I hope this helps, Paul

    Hi there,

    yes, it probably zapped the battery, I would just buy a new one. They do have a limit on their life anyway, so at some point you would need one.

    If you get the exact computer model and the number off the battery, do some google searches, and you can usually find them at a pretty good price. Almost all laptop batteries are pricey (in my opinon) and some prices are insane on certain models.

    Make sure the physical size is the same, and the votage and amps are the same. Also be careful about some of the places I see selling them are outside of the us.

    I am glad things are up and running for you, let me know if you have any other questions.

    BTW, with youru case in mind, I had written an entry on my blog, with a lot of details about cleaning up wet computers. I think you might get a kick out of the picture!

Garbage disposle makes a humming noise when turned on. InSinkErator Badger 5, 1/2 HP Garbage Disposal

Did you also hear any clattering sounds when it started? If so, it is rotating. If not then this hum is the motor in the lock rotor stage. Did you place garbage in it yet? Always run cool water in it when starting it.

The lights light up on it you can hear the fans running but nothing comes up on the screen

Listen carefully when you turn the unit on. Do you hear the hard drive clattering? Do you see the drive light blinking on and off? . If you see these things, your computer is working, but the screen itself has a power fault. The backlight works - that is why it is white. The LCD layer isn't getting power for whatever reason. (LCD pixels, when powered, will block light. That is how they produce a picture - by subtractive light management.) . It shouldn't cost too much, if the above conditions are true, to get the thing fixed.

I have a problem in the hinge link of my hp dv4305us laptop. the screen is sometimes jumpy and I am pretty sure the problem is in the link but I am not sure how to get at it or where to get a replacement?

HP had a recall on some of their laptops to rectify this problem .I would check with their customer service to see if this model is one of their recalls

First, turn on the system and check if you can still hear the start up sound for Windows (XP / Vista). If you can still hear the sound, that means that the system is is running OK and it is just the connection of the LCD monitor to the motherboard. You can call the laptop's manufacturer to help you just reconnect the LCD cable to bring back the display.

If there is no sound, then try to connect an external Monitor to you laptop (CRT or LCD monitors will do..), check if there is a display on the external monitor (depending on the laptop model, you will have to press Fn + F1-12 (Check the drawing on the keyboard to know what to press). to transfer the display to the external monitor, if that is not working then there is a high possibility that the problem is on the video card.

I can turn my laptop on but the screen is black


Do you hear a beeping sound when turning it on? Try connecting an external monitor (Desktop monitor) then press FN+F8 (Dell laptop only) and FN+F4 (HP laptop only). If it works on an external monitor, you may need to contact your computer manufacturer. check the warranty and request for an LCD monitor replacement.

If you hear a beeping sound when turning on your laptop or no power (no light). you may need to reseat the memory (RAM) or check the AC adapter (power adapter).

Let me also know the system model and computer manufacturer.

Keep me posted.
