    HP Pavilion dv9000 screen turns itself off in about a minute after the computer is turned on. The computer appears to be on with the hard drive indicating activity. After about a minute the computer goes into a hibernation and can be reactivated. I checked with Norton Internet Security software for viruses, none found.

    If you run it off the battery, it does not shut down like that. Yhe minute you plug in the AC power, it has the problem.

I had this problem as well on my zv6000, working for a while on battery but not long at all on AC power. After searching for answers I decided that it was overheating, or at least sensing that it was overheating. When I opened the case and found very little blocking fans or cooling fins, so I decided to change the processor. The heat sink compound was certainly adequate and pasty, so I just swapped from another zv6000. That seemed to fix the problem completely. I was able to run all day on AC after that. Disassembly instructions here,, may help.

Is this on battery or power supply?
If on AC power supply, then it sounds like a heat related issue.
Make sure you can hear the cooling fan running and you may need to blowe the dust out of it with a can of compressed air.

I have an hp zv-6000 I powered on and is asking for power on password after 3 try's it gives a code of 03986 how can I get past this

What you are referring to is also known as the BIOS password, which can be cleared by removing the power cord, and removing both of the batteries. Leave it for 5 minutes, then reinsert only power cord & internal battery (leave main battery out temporarily) and start it.

HP does not sell disks on non-supported PC,s (too old)
so ask them , or find them on ebay, or use craigs list

Monitor brightness

This is normal for almost every laptop - it is to conserve battery power. However, if you want to adjust the brightness anyway, you can do so by holding down the "Fn" key, and then hitting the number key that has the blue 'brighter sun' making on it. This is usually the F8 key, with the F7 key being the less bright key.

HP pavilion laptop shuts down abruptly

It sounds like something is overheating to me. Also, it could be a bad motherboard. Try putting your laptop on a hard surface. I carnt stress this enough. Also, you can try cleaning out the laptops cooling vents with some compressed air (you can get it at pcworld). At the end of the day and it still wont work, send it in for repair. Good luck
