Question about HP Pavilion dv9000z Notebook
SIR I NEED HELP MY HP NOTEBOOK MODEL DV9205US/ DV9000 ONE YEAR CAN'T REBOOK, RIGHTS COMES BEEPS AND STOPS.
SECONDLY HOW CAN I BACKUP MY HARDRIVE. OR CAN A HP HARD DRIVE WORK IN A DELL NOTEBOOK?
Had the same problems with my dv9205us in Feb 2008. Called HP and gave them the model and serial #s. There is a recall on certain models due to motherboard issues. The Fed-Exed a box with a return shipping label. Had the notebook back within a week at most with no cost to me at all. Give HP a call to see if you fall under the recall.

I have this HP DV9205US notebook for 18 months. Now it won't start. Here is a important document from HP. You can verify your notebook is cover by this recall or not.
(800)474-6836 HP Total Care Worldwide
The guy told me that the recall is been cancel, he needs to charge me for the service;
(866)671-7362 HP Total Care North America
The girl told me that my notebook is under this recall and I still have 6 more months warranty. She will send me the free shipping label for the free repair service.
So, not all the people are bad. You just have to find the right one. Good Luck!

I contacted HP and after the warranty had expired, HP sent me a box with next day delivery and had it fixed. It has something to do with the bios board. They said that they overclocked the bios and it caused the mother board to over heat. They fixed the problem and sent it back to me at their expense. Now if you have the inept Microsoft windows Vista installed on your computer, you will have to reinstall everything on you computer. (HP will put you computer back to FACTORY SPECS) They are not responsible for any programs or information on your hard drive that you installed after you opened the box. Microsoft Windows Vista registers with the Mother Board in you computer to prevent people from pirating the program (as if anyone wants it any way). I hope you already have everything backed up and have all the install keys and program disks to get everything back into the computer after HP is done with it. This is why I will never do business with HP again, their problem created a hugh problem.

I have a DV9205US and was experiencing same issues as on this blog. Sure enough, chatted with HP and it's a recall. They are sending the box.

I have a dv9205us also. The factory had a recall for repoot problems. Under warranty there are keyboard adn boot up freeze problems due to mother board faults. I had to return twice to have mother board changed out then I upgraded to 2gig memory.
You can use a fast usb drive for memory using vista external drive boost facility. It will come on automaticaly and you can choose.
Make sure you are inwarranty but any way mother board faults were the problem for boot up. Freeze of programs and video failure on boot up. Also shutdown freeze due to not able to shut down programs. Be sure some program or utility is closing properly. Ther is a utility to insure programs do not stop other programs from running. Some programs demand that no other programs run. you can set most programs in utilitybut study it well.
that is my 10 cents.
