Question about HP Pavilion dv6208nr Notebook

2 Answers

HP Pavillion dv9000 will not boot up in normal mode, only safe.

So I come downstairs to my computer a couple weeks ago and try to boot it up. After putting my password in, it goes black and the cursor stays at the middle of the screen. I can move the cursor around but nothing comes up. I can open it in the Safe Mode(s) and can connect to the internet but my sound card, video card, usb, etc... doesn't work. My original course of action was to put everything irreplaceable on an external and reload my OS but...this can not happen without the USB working in safe mode... Any ideas?

    Is this possible by pressing F11 while starting up? I'm not sure where my discs are. I moved recently and haven't seen them around.

Have you tried an XP repair?
Then you can save your data .
XP repair
When you boot with the Win XP install CD-ROM, it loads a minimal operating system, similar to DOS, but compatible with Win XP. At the first screen you select install Win XP (not Recovery Console) and at the next screen it will find that you already have Win XP and offer to attempt a repair. This repair should not touch your Applications or data; it just reinstalls the Windows files. This is great because when it works you don't need to reinstall all your software.
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

This happened to me with my compaq F700...after an automatic update the screen was changed to a resolution the monitor could not handle...thus the black screen...but if you booted in safe mode, you would have a screen because safe mode uses a lower resolution. While in safe mode, try changing your registry setting to allow for a lower resolution on your main start up and see if that clears the problems.

HP Pavillion dv9000. Intermittent stops. Cannot restart, but will do so after many hours. Screen turns blue with band of torn blue that looks like shutters. System carries out repair check - once worked...


Try booting your computer in safe mode... when your machine starts press F8 and go to Windows. Run for a couple of hours and see if this problem happens.

If you have system restore running, restore back to a point when you didnt have the problem

Pavillion dv9000 screen is gray, with external monitor connected,laptop will only start in safe mode using vista ultimate


Hi,
Your display drivers could be corrupt.
Boot the machine into safe mode. Right click on Computer and select manage from the sub menu.
When the window pops up select Device Manager.
A device list will populate. When it has look down the list for Display Adapters. Click on the + icon next to Display Adapters to it expands. Right click on the display adapter and select uninstall.

Restart the computer and let it boot in normal mode.
If it boots in normal mode let it detect the Display and install the drivers for it.
I would be a good idea to update the display drivers via the HP support website.


Regards.

HP Pavillion dv9000 screen disply problem


Try starting up in Safe mode by pressing F8 as soon as you see the HP logo on the screen at startup, then choose safe mode.

If there are colors within safe mode, try going to Start-->Right click on My Computer and go to Manage.

From there go to device manager on the left side and on the right side click the plus next to Display adapters

Under there right click and uninstall all display adapters, then reboot

Windows should reinstall all drivers for the display and hopefully will correct the issue

HP Pavilion dv9000 Problem


I understand that your Notebook is not booting into windows.

To isolate the issue please try to boot the Notebook in Safemode.

Restart the Notebook and keep pressing F8 key and select Safe mode to boot.

Please try to perform the following steps also

= Power Drain =

1. Disconnect the AC Adapter.
2. Remove the Battery.
3. Hold the Power button down for 30 seconds to 1 minute.
4. Reconnect the AC adapter and Battery.
5. Turn on the Notebook power.

If your Notebook is booting into Safemode. Then try to restore the Notebook to factory settings. Before restoring the Notebook backup your data.

I hope this will work.
Thanks
