Question about HP Pavilion dv6000 Motherboard
Dear FixYa Team,
Re: HP pavilion dv6000:
On boot the lights illuminate the keybrds media ctr /rom spins /hhd shows activitity but no display. The display however comes on intermittently after numerous restarts. Once in a blue moon I get to the desk top only to have the system freeze after bout 3 to 5 minutes.
Occassionally on the splash screen I get vertical red lines which leads me to believe it's graphical, but then I get to the desktop and no lines.
During the boot up, the system appears to be re-intializing, sort of cycling itself on /off, (indicated by lights dimming to off and then on again)
I have disable the following; all boot up programs, the rom, swap out memory chips and even remove the battery, Still the intermittitent & freezing displays continue.
All forums I check point back to the mobo, and as you can gather
it's out of warranty and HP support want me to pay for what clearly is an lemon of a product. I was either hoping for a full proof way to know if its the GPU or is it the MOBO....or even a solution.
Thanks for your time regarding this issue.
the problem is with the nvidia gpu. the solder on the bga balls is unleaded and does not have the flex of leaded balls. the gpus needs to be heated on an ir solder station with preheater to 210 degree C for 30 seconds. this should cure it. if it still does not work, the gpu needs to be reballed. you can obtain replacement balled gpu from ebay. you do need to prep board correctly and use proper ir solder station to do this.
