Question about HP Pavilion dv4000 Notebook

1 Answer

Hp pavilion dv5000 ok, that's what mine says anyway...

I've had this computer for 18 months. Now that the warantee is done... the monitor stopped working a month ago. Circuit City told me to order some display panel power inverter and hope that it fixed the monitor. Now the computer really doesn't work. Most times I can turn it on. I start doing something and the IDE light flashes, the computer beeps and it either freezes or shuts off. Some times I can't even start it up.  Is this 'normal' (meaning-inexpensive to fix) or should I turn it into another paperweight and buy another new computer? I have no clue about computers but am certainly not made of money... HELP!!!

How do i fix my LCD?

I have got a hp pavilion dv5000, when I turn on it the screen goes blank.

Power led glows, I hear for a few time the fan, disk led flashes intermittently and also I feel that the DVD player tries to load.

If I try to click on caps lock or num lock, leds don't respond to commands. I tried the hard reset pressing the power button for 30 seconds with the battery and the power removed. Nothing to be done by connecting an external monitor....

What can I do ?qqb002.gif

Thank you

HP Pavilion DV5000 battery charging problem

Sounds like you need to calibrate the battery, it is supposed to be done every 3 months. If it is not done, your battery will display the same symptoms are you describe. Yes, this holds true for adding a new battery also.

Here is HP's instructions on how to do it. You want to scroll down to the section called "Calibrate the notebook PC battery".

Battery with HP Pavillion DV5000 won't work. Do I need to replace the battery or is there a battery charger I could use to recharge the battery? Dianne

You can order a power cable online or pick one up at your local computer store. They should run between $80-150. The battery itself is very expensive to purchase but is rechargeable.

HP Pavilion dv5000 screen black - related to broken hinge?

The ribbon that connects the lcd to the laptop circut runs through the hinged area, so when you moved it, the connector came out. Unless you feel confident in taking the frame off and replacing the connector it may be time to get it fixed if you have a warantee left from HP, if you want to try it yourself there are pictures on the site that you can look at, I can give youa link for them or you can just look up your Hp repair manual from the vast knowledge base on file
