Question about HP Pavilion dv9000z Notebook

1 Answer

Power problem I've had this HP for a little over a year. I'm having the same difficulty of won't power up. I've tried the fixes, but not even the fans are working. I refuse to send it to HP for a second time (the first was to replace the hard drive). HP does not seem to help and will not replace the computer. I'm ready to junk it! No more HP products for me.

Remove Everything but the ram and battery. some even run plugged in without the battery. Try reducing hardware inside as much as possible. remove peripherals under panels on underside of chassis like modem and wifi. try to swap out the ram. Also, your charging circuit could be fried. use a voltmeter to probe the leads on the battery and make sure it has a charge. the charge will match the label on the battery. if so it should power up the pc, if not try probing the charger socket from the wall (the tip that inserts into PC) and see if you get voltage from that. usually 19V or close. If you are getting power everywhere your motherboard could be bad (charging port or other soldered-in malfunction).

My HP G60-230us was shutt down during my son was playing game,no power at all(LED light under charger connector is on,Power light LED/Battery light/Hard disk light are off,Please help?

OverheatingWhen the CPU overheats then it will shut down (i.e. thermaloverload) and won't boot up again until it has cooled down. If this is theproblem is not fixed then the CPU will eventually fail.
A faulty fan causes the problem or the fan and heat sink assembly are cloggedwith dust.
Check the CPU fan to see if it spins freely, if not replace the fan.
If the fan and heat sink is clogged with dust the remove the dust and make surethe vents are clear and dust free. Use a small brush and can of compressed airto do this.

If the battery of the HP laptop is not in a good condition, sometimes booting problems might happen. To remove any static charges accumulated in the battery, you would have to remove the battery and press the Power button for about 25-35 seconds. Then reset the battery. Even after this, if your laptop is not booting up then you could perform the battery calibration and press F8 key to boot in safe mode.

You've either got a bad motherboard or a bad processor (I'd lean to the motherboard being bad). I would honestly take this into a computer repair shop and have them check both.

HP dv9000 Screen Hinge Plague - And HP won't make good on it!

This doesnt really seem like a question, the only way you will get this repaired for free is if your warranty still covers that product. If not, ask how much the repair will cost or buy the parts, find a technical manual and do it yourself if you have had enough experiance with computers.
