Question about HP Computers & Internet

2 Answers

I have a hp pavilion dv9000 and over the past week it has been playing up.I go to turn it on and it makes 3 very loud beeps and all the lights and fans are working but the screen stays completely black after about 15 mins of turning it on and off and taking the battery out it starts up again.The laptop is on a desk not in sunlight and is usually off overnight and when i have turned it on for 5 consecutive days it has done the same.

    the pc is turned off for at least 16 hrs before i turn it on,i havent got a cooling base but i have had the pc for 2 years and this hasnt happened before.

  • harvatt Jun 25, 2009

    for a temporary measure i have placed 4 books under the lap top at either corner away from grids and vents to see if this helps.if this is the problem i will buy something permenant.

    hope they will fix it as i paid for an extended warranty from hp and they didnt send me a copy so i emailed them and they said they need to see proof of purchase for the warranty,waiting for them to get back to me now.cant turn off the laptop as if i do it ,may not start again.

    Maybe your system is overheating. Have you provided cooling base for the laptop?

Went you say you turned it on for 5 consecutive days, your laptop might not withstand such loads. Laptops were designed to operate as a handy tool. If you're planning to run it for long hours, provide enough cooling to preserve the components within.

    Good thinking bro. Also if you have a table fan or something, face it towards the rear of the notebook, or where there are vents on the sides. This will allow more air to circulate and cool it efficiently. Comment again after your test ;)
    All the best

    Great. But I'm not sure if they'll replace. I had fingerprint reader and optical drive problems in my HP. They pushed me till I ran out of warranty. So make sure you get yours replaced. All the best. And also make sure you provide enough cooling for the notebook.

Good day. Your problem is the motherboard. I am 100% sure since I have this computer to and this same thing happened to me to. The problem is the nvidia gpu overheating all the time since it is defective (they all are). It has burnt apart the connections to the motherboard I would believe. You should return it for free repair. However, You should try to get a 100% refund, since this problem is permanent. And hp will only replace the damaged components with the same components. HP released a BIOS update for this. However this went all wrong. Many people went over the warranty time because of the BIOS update. And hp is now making people to pay 400 us dollars for a fix that is only temporary. So you should try getting a 100% refund. Try to measure how hot the computer is. You will be amazed. Then report it as a fire hazard.

HP Pavillion DV9000 will not start. Before, I would press the power button and the lights would flash, once, then turn off immediately. Less than a second. By resetting the motherboard, I was able to...


Try to remove the battery, hold on power button for about 50-60seconds, then plug-in the charger and turn the laptop ON, see what happens.

Good Luck

How long is the battery on a HP Pavilion dv9000 supposed to last?

Laptop batteries will usually last from 1.5 to 5 hours, depending upon the demand, the battery and the use. Sound burns up a lot of juice as does the DVD player so if you're watching movies or playing games an hour is about right. You can purchase a better HP PAVILION DV9000 Battery with 12 cell , it will work longger.

When I turn on my HP dv9000 I get a constant loud beep. have to hit escape button to stop it several times

Re: dv2000/dv6000/dv9000 recall ubatz - Just got my laptop back from repairs a couple of days early. Cosmetically it's perfectly fine.

I kept the easy peel plastic on the lid, had an extra one and covered all around inside the keyboard (but not the keyboard itself). Got a page that says the LCD cable was fixed.

The rubber circles at the bottom of the LCD panel are pushed in at an odd angle but I'm afraid if I try to move them back, they're going to pop backward and disappear altogether behind the LCD.

I did order my Vostro last night and changed my sig file a few minutes ago to remove the DV9700T from it.

I haven't turned it on yet. Mixed emotions. Ah well.

Hp pavilion dv9000 screen and factory settings

*Actually*, with regards to the screen issue, software CANNOT cause a failure when the display assembly is physically moved....The two possibilities are the LCD harness (video cable) part# 432962-001 OR the actual LCD itself (part# LP171WP4 (TL)(03) for most models). My money's on the cable, not a stupid driver...

Bluetooth HP Pavilion dv9000

Look in the control panel (software). You should readily see the bluetooth devices installed. Chance are if your computer is older than 3 years it does not have blue tooth. You can usually upgrade this by installing a chip under the keyboard.
