HP Pavillion DV2000 - laptop slow-locks up

Always locking up and extremely slow on start-up. Sometimes the wireless doesn't work. I've put on antivirus and cleanup. Still runs slow and same problems continue.

Here is what I myself would do.....

1. Remove any antivirus software you have and replace with with Avira AntiVir... its free and works A LOT better than ones you pay for. Download here:

2. Download and install Malwarebytes AntiMalware from here: Free version on left side of screen.

3. Remove things running in your startup that are NOT needed by going in to MSCONFIG ( Start > Run > msconfig ) go to startup tab and uncheck everything that is absolutely NOT required... any blank entries, disable them (they are adware/spyware). If you have any questions about what anything is and if it is required, check it against this website:

4. After cleaning up the startup list, save/close and restart the computer. When it comes back up, open up the malwarebytes program and click the "Update" tab... check for updates. Also open up the AntiVir and check for updates for it.

5. When the updates are done for BOTH programs, run a FULL scan with malwarebytes on ALL hard drive(s) you have in your computer. As malwarebytes is scanning each file, if it is infected, AntiVir will pop up with a box asking what to do with the file. ANY and ALL detections in AntiVir should be put to Quarantine.

6. After Malwarebytes is done, it will say "Show Results" or whatever.... click that and fix all problems it has. It may need to be restarted.... go ahead and let it.

7. After MBAM is done, you can do a full scan with AntiVir (would not hurt to do so).... all detections go to Quarantine.

8. Download ATF Cleaner from here :
Go ahead and save it to the desktop..... when its done, double click on it, select all to clean and click OK.... let it do its thing and clean the junk off your hard drive.

9. When that is done, do a defrag on your hard drive(s). After that is done, make a system restore checkpoint and restart.

When all of the above is done, see if it is running better. :)

Hope this helps.

Do you have window XP or Vista? Try a system restore **make sure to save data to a flash drive first... ** 2nd option do a clean wipe or a XP Cd repair... its likely so much has been installed on the registry it is getting clogged up and adware and such is catching up to it...

Hp pavillion dv6-2155dx keeps buffering and won't play videos correctly

Are you connecting wireless or wired connection. Have you updated your flash player? Which browser are you using? Do you keep your computer cleaned up from internet browsing? If your browser is up to date and so it your flash player then more than likely it could be the internet connection. If you are running it wireless try plugging it in to the router with a cable and check it. Another thing would be to check for a virus.

I have a HP pavillion dv2000 but my cd/dvd rom is not working. If i insert a cd, it doesn't play the cd and the E drive does not open.

Your DVD Drive is faulty please get it replaced, if not check for an external usb DVD, might be a cheaper option

What might be the cause of hp pavillion dv2000 not displaying on the screen at start up and giving 3 beeps, 1 long and 2 short, sometimes it boot but doesn't get to the desktop area?

1 long beep followed by two short beeps is usually indicative of a failed/failing display adapter. On something as.... rustic as your dv2000 it can be fixed.... but probably would see better value from just replacing the unit.

I have a pavillion dv2000.when i swich on it says only someone with a certain number or an administrator can unlock computer

Looks like this is locked and in hibernation / suspend rather than properly off. If you hold in the power button until it powers off, next time it should boot into windows or a normal logon screen. good luck!!

How I can speed up my hp pavillion dv2000

First of all you need to figure out what might be hurting your HP's performance. There are a number of reasons that may causing your HP computer running slow, but generally two factors: outdated hardware or poor system maintenance. For hardware part: you can get more RAM, higher CPU etc. For system part: there might be a lot of junk files, caches, errors etc out there, about 80% slow HP issues are caused by this reason, in this case you can rely on to free detect and fix related issues.
