HP (dv2000) laptop will not boot up at all

I have had my HP Pavilion dv2000 laptop (HP Pavilion Entertainment PC) for just above one year now. It runs on Vista home edition. Prior to this problem it used to hang then reboots. Sometimes it hanged then came to life with a message about (display problem that the system has managed to fix). When the system decides to hang, it would either display a strip of coloured lines across the screen or a matrix of colours all over the screen. But now it does not boot at all. When I power it up, it lights up as something want to come on the screen ... and that is as far as it gets. Simply it does not show even the Vista start-up logo. Cooling fan and all the lights are working fine. Please help and advise.

It appears to be a video card/mainboard problem very common with the symptoms you have described. Try to connect the laptop to an external monitor (see the associated buttons too). No video signal on the external monitor could indicate a damaged video card/mainboard. Not worth it to be repaired and the replacement is expansive. Check the price on a professional repair store. There are new laptops on the market more powerful than yours for about 500-600$. So you can make a choice. Less common, could be a memory problem.Try the laptop with a good previously checked memory (or if there are 2 bars in your laptop, try them one by one). If you do not get any video signal on the external monitor have the laptop, first diagnostic is most probable.
In both cases, if you get a video signal on the external monitor it means your screen is defective (also expensive to be replaced).

My HP Pavilion dv2000 turns on, but screen is black


If the laptop appears to boot up but the LCD screen is black, then the problem is a back-light fault caused by either a faulty inverter or a faulty CCFL lamp. Please click on this link and follow my instructions to determine the fault and fix :-

Hi

Thank you for your query

Please try the folowing

1) Remove ALL wires and then press and hold the power button in for approx 20 seconds

2) Plug everything back in and then rerty

This may sort the issue out however from what you are descrbing, if there is no boot or display it is highly likely the motherboard and/or the CPU is faulty

I would recommend that you book the PC into a reputable PC repair shop if the above does not work

If this has been useful please leave postive feedback/vote/testimonial - Thank You Again

Hp pavilion dv2000 notebook will not boot up


hi,
i m in Hong Kong. The stupid HP repair center charged US 90 just for inspection!!!!! They they said the whole motherboard had to be replaced, thts additional US 630 dollars, the thing is just 1.5 yr old. They also said i don get to keep the broken mother board after replacement. This is simply irresponsible, unethical, sleazy and UNJUST!!

Thanks. right now the computer is fixed for US70. when i hv time, i'll open it up and see if i can figure it out how it was fixed. The shop suggested tht the computer wont last too long. This is such bad quality for HP... Sorry, i hv to do the following for other victims to find this easily:
