SOURCE: my laptop is on safe

Let's diagnose your laptop together tiffanythao, and see if FixYa can help cheer you up.

Let's start by shining a flashlight at the LCD screen of the laptop, laptop on.
Shine the flashlight at various angles.

Do you see Faint images?

Another test if you have a VGA monitor available.
(CRT. Looks like a small TV. You can also use a flat LCD screen monitor, if it has a VGA cable on it.
More information on what a VGA cable looks like, and the VGA connector on the back of your laptop,

Laptop off, plug the VGA cable from the VGA monitor into the VGA connector on the back of the laptop.

Turn the monitor on, wait until it 'lights up'.
Now turn the monitor on.

If the monitor does not show any graphics on it;
Press, and hold down on the Fn key, then tap the F4 key.
This F4 key is a toggle over to an external monitor Hotkey.

Still no?
Hold the Fn key down again, and tap on the F4 key.
The monitor used may be the internal monitor still, and not the external monitor. (VGA monitor)

Still no? (No faint images with using a flashlight, and/or no graphics on an external monitor)
Then I bring you to a sad diagnoses.

The HP Pavilion dv2000, Pavilion dv6000, and Pavilion dv9000 series of Notebook PC's share a common problem.

Graphics chipset overheating.

A) Chip and Chipset are slang terms to denote I.C.
Integrated Circuit,

B) A graphics chipset is a GPU soldered to a circuit board.
Graphics Processing Unit.

1) A GPU can be soldered directly to the motherboard (A circuit board), which is Integrated Graphics.

(Another term for Integrated Graphics is OnBoard Graphics.
Soldered directly to the motherboard. ON the motherBOARD)

2) A GPU can be soldered to a removable adapter card.
Graphics adapter card, or for short, graphics card.

The GPU in the Pavilion dv9000 series of Notebook PC's, is soldered TO the motherboard.
Integrated Graphics.

The method of mounting is a BGA surface mount.
Ball Grid Array,

To explain this type of mounting I'm going to use one of the older Intel Pentium 4 processors.
The one's that used a Socket 478 processor socket.

The bottom of the processor has 478 pins sticking down, from it's flat circuit board.
These pins lined up with 478 socket holes, in the Socket 479 processor socket.

Using a BGA surface mount there are no pins, and no socket holes.

The bottom of the GPU's circuit board has Solder Balls which take the place of the pins.
(Not 478 of them. I don't know how many)

The motherboard has matching Copper Pads.
The graphics chipset is set down on the copper pads, so that the solder balls are aligned with them.
Heat at a specified temperature, and length of time, is applied.
The solder balls melt soldering the graphics chipset to the copper pads.
In essence soldering the graphics chipset to the motherboard.

The Pavilion dv2000, dv6000, and dv9000 series of Notebook PC's have a poor cooling system.
Specifically the part of the system that cools the graphics chipset.

The graphics chipset overheats, and the solder connections start to melt, and this develops a bad contact.

Same cooling system as your Pavilion dv9000z,

Scroll down to about three-quarters of the page until you come to Step 25, and Step 26.
That is the cooling system for your laptop.

The flattened curved copper tube is the Cooling Tube.

The aluminum looking X shape at the far left attaches to the cooling tube.
It sits on the top of the Processor's case, and absorbs heat from the Processor.
The heat is then transferred radiantly to the Cooling Tube, and towards the black Fan Assembly.

The next aluminum looking shape to the right, (square shaped tab that comes off of the side), sits on the graphics chipset.

The Cooling Tube goes on to connect to the finned black object on top of the black Fan Assembly.
The finned black object is a Heatsink.

The Heatsink absorbs the heat from the Cooling Tube. The thin, long fins of the Heatsink radiate the heat away.
Air from the Fan helps to carry heat away from the Heatsink.

The aluminum looking square tab is a heatsink also. It collects heat from the graphics chipset, and transfers it to the Cooling Tube.

This heatsink is TOO small.

More on what I have just described in a video.
(The gentleman is selling a repair also. I am only listing the video so you can see more in-depth of what I am 'talking' about, not advertising),

For additional questions please post in a Comment.

SOURCE: Help!!!

test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions SATA

the leads from your (motherboard to your hard drive) make sure they have a secure dust free connections and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty

make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd have secure connections and are not faulty

even something as small as faulty fan lead can cause you problems computers need all of the data and power to travel through every working device and to have an end for a computer to be able work properly

a motherboard and a hard drive any leads between them will fail before your motherboard or your hard drive check all electrical extensions make sure they are securely seated even the cd/dvd drives need to have current go through make sure these devices are working

check the CPU central processing unit make sure it has thermal paste and dust free secure seating

also check your computer ram modules and cmos battery make sure it has charge and they are dust free and securely seated some motherboards cmos batteries are soldered in

hope it helps

My kids played with my log on screen my password will not allow me in and I'm locked out. I've tried everything...what do I do??? Please help!


Restart your computer, and as soon as you see the logo of the company that made your computer (ie: Dell, Toshiba, IBM, eMachine, etc....) keep pressing the F8 key. Soon a lot of different Options come up, choose the one that says start Windows in Safe Mode.

Once in safe mode, choose Administrator from the login screen, then go Control Panel -> users and then change the person's password.

Hopefully this will help,

My Logitech Remote 550 is Locked in the Safe Mode. How do I get it our of Safe Mode.

Doing a firmware upgrade is the BEST way to recover from Safe Mode. A remote may go into safe mode itself for a variety of reasons.

However, if the remote fails to communicate with the PC when it is stuck in Safe Mode, please try the following.

1. Remove the batteries from the remote & check for any stuck buttons especially the Power button that may be causing the remote to stay in this state.
2. If it still will not apply firmware to get out of safe mode, then still without batteries hold down the #2 button while plugging into USB, and it should exit Safe Mode, and say something similar to 'Firmware Upgrade Success'. Even though it says this, still perform the Firmware upgrade since it was stuck in Safe Mode to begin with.

Hope this helps
