Not sure on the dv9000z but on many other laptops i have noticed that temperatures get very high inside .. if it gets hot enough then something will fail .. often the video chip . sometimes others .. there seems to be two problems .. first when you use your laptop on your lap (or worse yet on a bed or pillow) then the air intakes can be blocked .. it will feel hot when you are using it .. second and i cant for the life of me figure why this one is still a problem .. the pads that hold the laptop off of the table (so that the air intakes are not blocked) are so short that the intake fan does what they call an "airfoil stall" .. when the suction pressure gets to a certain point then the fan stalls (quits moving air or greatly diminished air flow) its just spinning it wheels without doing much .. .. of course the temperature goes way up .. on many laptops i have found a dramatic improvment in cooling just by putting on "stick on" felt pads that raise the laptop up just a little more .. high enough off the table top to allow the fan to do it job .. often you can feel a big difference in exhaust air temprature .. another way that really shouldnt be necessary but works .. is to mount the laptop on a laptop cooler .. thats a flat plate containing a fan or two that keeps the computer much cooler .. anymore when i see a laptop that has a history of similar failures, i suspect high heat as the cause .. unfortunatly it doesnt matter what fails .. almost everything is mounted on the mother board and no matter what the trouble is . its the mother board that has to be replaced .. if you check on the internet to see if many others are having the same trouble then you might want to insist on a free repair .. that has worked a few times sometimes not ..i like doing business with the companies that cooperate ..

If it is under warranty or extended cover then it is free so contact your original supplier

If it is out of warranty and you have not taken out cover you are stuffed

Hello here is the manual:

Adobe reader is needed to read the content.

Here is a list of beeb codes:

I would start to renew the power supply, and see if that helps.

Look also here:

Look also for bad caps on the mainboard:

If they are leaking like this, scrap the mainboard.
It does not pay, to let it be repaired.

Good luck

Why my callers cant hear my voice when they call me on myphone..but me i can hear thier voice


It helps more if you were to be more specific with the make and model. 9 times out of 10 it's a bad MIC. Most cell phones have the MIC soldered to the board. Some phones like the iPhone or Nexus One can be changed out easily by just replacing the part. The quick way to test your phone is to shoot a video and talk. If you play back the video and don't hear anything then you know 100% you need to replace the MIC. It should be a cheap repair I usually charge my customers $25 - $30. I wouldn't pay more then that. You can find a lot of repair techs on Craigslist HOWEVER be careful and use proper judgement when selecting a repair tech to take your phone to.

Motherboard has died 3 times in 13 months


Hi there
Sounds like a generic problem you are having, get HP to change it for a different model if they will as you are entitled to under the consumers act.

Good luck with them

Motorola PEBL U6 keypad died


UOLACE - what that person said is ****.....if the keypad is dead then it can easily be replaced so take it to a better tech shop.

hartman - you should have it reflash to correct this issue

GUEST - try another battery and if that does not work then have the phone's firmware reflash

Non powering


hi! the motherboard is dead. if the ac adapter light turns off when plugged in and if you unplug it, it will turn on, then the problem is with the motherboard. It needs to be replaced. Call Dell Tech support if you still have warranty to have the motherboard replaced or else, you have to pay for the repair.

Hope this helps!
