Question about HP Pavilion dv9000z Notebook

1 Answer

Screen divided into 2 mirrored sections.

I've had this labtop for a little over a year and have had no problems at all with it till now.

I have a black screen divided into two sections that mirror each other. Then I get the blue screen of death for a few seconds, then my labtop restarts itself. Once it turns back on it goes into a Windows Error Recovery screen. I have 2 options from there which are, 1. Start windows normally & 2. Launch Startup Repair(recommended). Starting normally brings me back to the blue screen & then right back to the Windows Error Recovery. Startup repair says that it cannot repair this computer automatically and only gives me the option to "Finish". This then turns my labtop completely off.

I have recently started using my labtop for a new purpose, I now run an HDMI cable directly to my reciever as part of my media center. I have used it in the past to hook up directly to a tv and had no problems at all. I also used it for a few days hooked up to this same reciever and had no problem for a while. I have tried unplugging everything and restarting and I it still comes back to the split screen.

A co-worker suggested it could be the video card maybe but he is about as clueless as I am with computers. Not sure if this helps at all but I have a NVIDIA pure video graphics card.

I am by no means a computer tech or anything close to it so if this info is totally useless please tell me what info would be usefull to someone who can help me with my problem. Thanks in advance.

This sounds like a hard drive failure. You can press f8 to enter safe mode with networking during post. If it boots to windows,then go online & download the video driver from nvidia,install it & reboot. If that doesn't work,try re-formatting. If it won't do that then try a new hard drive. I have the software needed to test the hard drive,but it's for commercial use only. This is the back yard method.

Scroll bar won't work on some e mails


You need to fix IE8 to have it work properly with GMail, by turning off Compatibility View. 1. In IE9, press the Alt key to toggle the main menu bar on first.
2. Then in IE8 or IE9 click Tools and choose Compatibility View Settings
3. Remove google.com from the big text box if it is there (in some versions it may not be.)
4. Uncheck the three checkboxes under the text box - this is very important, or Microsoft will just switch CV back on again next time you start IE.
5. Restart IE.
That should cure all your scrolling problems.
To deal with your sidebar you have three options:
1. Hover your mouse over the section you want to see to expand that part - i.e. mouse up to your labels to have them all drop down, or mouse down to the bottom to see your Chat contacts
2. Grab the bar which divides the two sections and drag it down till you can see all your labels
3. Collapse Chat till you need it by clicking the Chat bubble icon at the bottom of the side bar.

Hello, I have a canon rebel xti. It's about 4 years old and up until this point has worked perfectly. However, currently on a trip in Europe and when I went to shoot this morning, I can only capture...


currently on a trip in Europe and when I went to shoot this morning, I can only capture 1/3 of the area I'm shooting. That is everything in the lower 2/3 of the screen is black. I've tried a couple of lenses with no avail. Viewing previous pics is not a problem, so this is obviously not a screen problem. I'm thinking something with the mirrors? Any suggestionns

I have white spec that just start to come on the screen the tv is about 3 years old its a 65 dlp mitsubishi


It could be either a spec dust on the mirrors or your light engine is starting to fail or has a "stuck mirror" Try opening the back and inspecting the mirror section. Be careful, high voltages exist in appliances, please unplug the television if you do try this. Good luck!

My samsung SX07 series is a little messed up. The sreen is divided into 2 sections one takes up about 2/3 the screen, and the shows the middle third of the screen. How do i fix that?!


Turn on the menu and if it is messed up also then you have a bad panel,...very expensive. If not, then it may only need a T-Con board. These are only available for versions SX07 & 8 and for SS03 & 4. Look at the right side for a sticker with your version number on it. I highly suggest you take it to a shop.

I find the codes of the lyrics of moments of truth by:FM static..


Moment Of Truth - Fm Static
Here we are, in the best years of our lives.
With no way of knowing, when the
whee’ll stop spinning cause we don’t
know where we’re going…
and here we are, on the best day of our lives.
And it’s a go, lets make it last, so cheers you
all to that, ’cause this moment’s never comin’ back
I used to know her brother, but I never
knew I loved her, ’till the day she laid her
eyes on me. Now I’m jumpin’ up and down,
she’s the only one around, and she means
every little thing to me
I’ve got your picture in my wallet, and your
Phone number to call it, and I miss you more,
Whenever I think about you,. I’ve got
your mixed tape in my Walkman, been so
long since we’ve been talkin’ and in a few
more days, we’ll both hook up, forever and ever
And here I am, on the west coast of
American and I’ve been tryin’ to think for weeks of
all the ways to ask you, And now
I’ve brought you to the place, Where I’ve
poured my heart out, a million times, for a million
reasons, To offer it to you
I used to know her brother, but I never
knew I loved her, ’till the day she laid her
eyes on me. Now I’m jumpin’ up and down,
she’s the only one around, and she means
every little thing to me
I’ve got your picture in my wallet, and your
Phone number to call it, and I miss you more,

your mixed tape in my Walkman, been so
long since we’ve been talkin’ and in a few
