    HP Pavilion ze5270

    Need to repair the power plug connection on the system board and can't get the case open.

  • Anonymous May 06, 2008

    Firsty, I started to have problems with the USB port. The USB drive was not recognizing my jump drive. Then my cd drive was not recognizing my cds. Then the cursor started to freeze on the screen. I thought it was a virus but during installation, the error messages showed up on the screen (corrupted files). I couldnt reinstall or format the hard disk, it didnt allow me. I believe that the motherboard is not working properly... so how can I get a new motherboard for this computer and how much cost?

    Hello,

    my HP DV4170us just began to completly lock up. There was no rhyme or reason as to why it would do it but I noticed that the fan was not running properly. some times it would be running fine then teh next moment it would stop. My IT guy at work ran a bunch of tests and blew out the heat sink. The good news was that there was no virus. He said that my motherboard was overheating so I am off to replace the motherboard. I hope that this will solve the problem. Based on what I have read here I think that it just might solve the issue.

    i have problem in motherboard my laptop not open

  • djbj Nov 12, 2008

    My dv4270us laptop has completely locked up. I first lost the usb ports several months ago, then the touch pad started acting eradically. The mouse pad would work when I would apply slight pressure to the left of the touch pad (must be a loose connection right under that area). Anyway the laptop has finally seized up completely and it takes about 3 minutes to execute every click of the mouse button. Could this be the motherboard?

    I have the same problem, laptop freezes, but when i press just left saide of the touchpad, it resumes.

    hello there.

    I have an hp pavilion dv4000 (dv4285EA). I have exacly the same issues.



    problem description:
    I can not use the mousepad and keyboard, the screen is frozen. The laptop constantly ejects all USB ports. I have to aply some pression in the area between the keyboard and mousepad and the laptop regain access to everything except the USB devices that remain inaccessible (giving a constant access error). Each time, I've to aply more pessure for it to work.



    troubleshooting:
    At the begening I Thought it could be some virus infection (I wasn't yet awar of the pressure issue) so I Formated the hard-drive and reinstall all the software cd with the laptop's original operating system and drivers. This did not solve the problem.
    After that I was convinced that the problem would be hardware, I Made sure the memory and the Hard-Drive were properly fitted, then I tested it again and still all the same.
    I went to HP hardware testing page to do the hardware tests, passed all tests.



    What is being done by Hp:
    They for sure know this is an manufacturer hardware issue but just don't care. I'm waiting for an estimate repair price... I Imagine a lot of €€€ (I'am from Europe>Portugal, so... euros :D )



    Another important detail:
    The laptop is like new, very well estimated. I toke care of it as it was a little baby.


    What I think of all this:
    At the time I purchased the laptop it seemed to me a good investment to bet in HP because it is said that the assistance was really something else. Will in warenty, It was, can't complain about that. BUT... The investment cost me 1500 euros, and after 4 years I still haven't recover the investment and I no longer have the laptop working. At the time I had a similar solution in the competition by just over half of the investment. I just can say that HP was a very bad investment. I'am very disapointed, because this seams too be an manufacturer hardware issue they sould assume.



    I'm not an expert, but at the end, I think I trusted them to be more that they really are.



    thank you to the other poster's I found they'r pariticipation very helpfull.

  • esgoiado Mar 25, 2009

    Image frizzing, lose usb connection etc.etc..

    This is a know issue and for that HP should assume some responsability with it.

    But this is what they have to say to me!



    Today I recived from HP the budget for reparing this problem ...



    Reparação 367,00 €
    Transporte 0,00 €
    IVA 16% 58,72 €
    TOTAL 425,72 €



    I think I wil Get a new one. For sure it will not be an HP.
    Really desapointed with them!!!

I had problems where USB ports would quit working randomly--required reboot to get working again.

Took apart laptop and inspected. I did not notice anything obvious (after all, I am a software engineer).

After putting back together, it didn't even start. So I remembered a post saying to put pressure just above the touchpad. And, voila!

So I took it apart again and figured out that putting just a little pressure on the corner of the fw82801fbm chip caused the system to respond. So I put in a little vinyl bumper (1/2", I believe) to put pressure on the corner of this chip.

It has been rock solid for over a year now. Took it apart again a few months ago to inspect the bumper--just indented real good where it contacts the chip.

I considered sending the board somewhere to have it resoldered. (I got quotes from various places between $35 and $350.) But, at this point, I'm just fine with the bumper solution!

I have looked all over the internet trying to solve this one. I finnaly found a fourm where a guy who fixes this problem posted the answer. He made mention of the previous post talking about little trick fixes and I tried them ALL!! The problem is the whole computer freezez up unless you press on the left side of the touch pad. The answer is the the BGA chip (intel) has a loose soldier joint. So I figured I could save money by trying to heat up the soldier and re set it. There is a few funny ways of ding this. HEAT GUN, Lighting a tea light candle with cotton balls/rubbing alchol. The reason for this is the chip is cermaic and you dont want to heat the other componets around it. I tried to re heat each bridge to reset tot soldier. NOTHING WORKED and after all the different fixes.... I had to order another mother board and a NEW bottom chassis. <-----banging on the computer is not recomemded but this problem is VERY VERY VERY frustrating!!! So my advice is to order another mother board of EBAY ( make sure you match the HP replecement numbers) and fix it that way. I paid 100.00 for mine. Belive it or not there is a few DV4000 mother boards SOME HAVE MEMORY card readers. Sounds nice to have bur REMEMBER..... YOUR BASE WILL NOT WATCH THE HOLES IN THE NEW MOTHERBOARD!!!! Oh yea this did fix the problem. PRESS DOWN ON THE SIDE AND START SAVING YOU INFORMATION!!!!!!

I also have a HP Pavilion dv 4000 laptop and it locks up. It was my parents and I came home to visit and took a look at it. It would un-lock up when I would flex, or bend the front where the latch button is and hold it but as soon as you let go it would freeze again. I took it apart and traced it to a spot on the board. I'm not a genious by any means with computers, but underneath, under one of the removable covers there is a little chip that can be removed that has a white wire (aux) and black (main) that run to the screen, but screen still runs and system operates w/o it in, and under there, there is a little blue disc with a red and white wire running off of it. When I would press on it near where the wires come out it would run normally. I don't know exactly what the blue thing is or why that would be the reason for it to freeze up but that is far as I got. ikd if I need to replace the blue thing or the motherboard but I'm sure one of the two is the problem...

if you can figure this out or know what the problem is, email me at natephillips_goingup@hotmail.com

Hp dv4000 won't turn on, no lights on- totally dead


first check fuse in plug. if good then check power adaptor, even if its lit up it still can be faulty or use a voltmeter to check that you are getting continuous current. if good it gets harder youll have to open it up and check the fuse inside it dont look like a normal fuse its small. its at the back next to were you plug in the charger should say f. check picture. its not for youre model but just a demonstration. hope this helps. j.oates

Hello, i have hp pavillion 4 laptop but when i power it the caps lock and num lock keys keeps blinking and the display screen is also blank.


This is a very common problem & it affects the Hp dv2000 , dv4000 , dv6000 , dv9000 series of laptops . In almost all cases this is caused by the video card overheating . There are 2 options , one is replace the motherboard ( expensive ) , the other is performing a " reflow " similar to how xbox 360's & ps3's are repaired . After the " reflow " you should replace the thermal paste with Arctic Silver #5 & I clean out the heatsink & fan before replacing them . Good Luck if you attempt the 2nd solution , I have done it about 20 times so far only 1 failure .

Replacing hp dv4000 motherboard


Hi I suggest you go to the HP site at the link below and select your particular version and then seek out the manual for it.
But system boards are very expensive and tricky to replace. if you are not experienced in laptop repairs then forget it. It's really not worth the effort of replacing the system board unless you can get a good used one.
Just buy another laptop and get your data transferred. Go for a used Dell D610. Excellent machines, about 4 years old now but I sell loads and NEVER had a problem. Good build quality, unlike most of todays laptops

I have HP DV4000 has a bright problem but cant get fn keys to work


Reinstall all drivers for your laptop from the HP.Com website. If the function keys still don't work, you may have a defective keyboard.

Turn the laptop off, then take the laptop keyboard off (usually takes 1 screw - bottom of case, and a few sliders, top of keyboard). And then there will be a couple of thin cables which are connected to the motherboard. There is a sliding connector which holds these on. Push this up, slide the cable in, puch it back down. Do for both cables if you have 2 (keyboard and tracking pad/pointing stick). Reinstall keyboard and try it out.

If that doesn't fix it, replace the keyboard with one from ebay.
