HP Pavilion dv5000 PC Notebook

Im having quite the issue with my laptop. its suddenly very slow and the sound sounds very distorted. i've had this problem before and the only thing that i could do to fix it is completely restart it to factory settings. not even system restore will help it. please help me with this, i relly need to fix this issue soon.

    okay I have had the same issue.. it happened a while back and my using my covered services plan it was fixed- well, the issue is up again and its very frustrating- is this an all computer issue or just this model? it seems they would have a recall if there was such an issue on all of them..

  • pgirl0419 Jun 18, 2008

    thanks! I followed the prompts and so far its already running smoother- including sound.. and for the user below.. go to administrative tools then computer management... then you will see device manager and can choose IDE ATA/ATAPI controllers.. and follow the rest.. good luck!

    I tried the solution that was recommended by Rsenny and it worked! Thanks a lot for the help. This was more than many tech people were able to achieve. The comment about finding device manager under computer mgmt was also helpful. Thanks a lot to everyone on this thread.

    Thanks so much Rsenny! That definately fixed my laptop's problem big time!!! I can't believe I had restored my computer back to factory settings everytime this happened. I swore my computer had a virus or something. I guess they are just like that, go figure. Another great thing about it is, ever since I tried your solution, my laptop never got slow like that again!



    THANKS SO MUCH!

I have hp dv5000 as well. and i had the same problem.
what helped me is that:
you go to start - control panel - administrative tools -
then take: device manager.
in the device manager window you click on the plus near:
IDE ATA/ATAPI controllers
right click on: primery IDE channel
and select uinstall.
at that moment you will probably feel that the computer is back to its speed. restart anyway.
it will tell you new hardwear found, click: ok to everything it will install the primery IDE chenell again.
well that worked for me...

    I know you posted this 2 years ago buddy but you have just solved the greatest mystery in my life! For 3 years my Hp dv5000 has been ill! I thought it was a virus, experts thought it was hardware and others just didn't have a clue! So as a last ditch attempt before I re-formatted the HD, I thought i'd have one last check on the internet to find a problem, and hey presto. Thank you SO SO much Rsenny, you are an absolute Legend!!!

Thank you Rsenny, that worked perfectly. I was helpling a college student with his DV5000 laptop. Horribly slow. I did all the logical things that everyone on every other site suggested, with very little impact on the problem. It originally took 10 minutes to go from pushing the power button to being able to use the computer. Absolutely dismal. Your solution took me from 10 minutes to 23 seconds. I don't know how you figured this out, but I'm glad you shared with the class. Thank you, and thank you again!

I guess Rsenny is a hero. His way worked for me great. I even looked at the drive at one point for a solution but didn't want to mess with it too much. His way is key. I know this because I knew someone with the same exact problem but Rsenny's way fixed it fine. FYI for the people who have trouble finding the Disk Manager, go to Control Panel then System icon, then click the tab that says Hardware at the top and you'll see the Disk Manager is the first choice.

I have no solution, but Rsenny's worked for me. I have no idea how they figured it out and I very rarely comment on any message boards but I felt you needed as many thank you's and way to go's as you could get. Thank you so much!!!

Thank you Rsenny for figuring it out. I have been freaking out for the last 5 months. I have had someone reinstall the operating system 2 times. I didn't want to trash it. It is still not paid for. If you ever need help with your credit or have questions contact me.

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.

Audio Distortion after System Crash


sorry for the late reply. im using windows. im quite sure that there's no virus involved with the distortion of my sound. this is what happened.

1. im surfing the net while listening to music(full volume)
2.)then suddenly the sound gets a bit distorted(jumps,skips)
3.)then everything hangs up which forced me to reboot
4.)the windows loading screen became too long(like 5mins) before it takes me to the main desktop(start up programs loads like 48 years also).
5.)when i play music ,the sound is very much(like alien,"rrrrrrr")

i tried reinstalling the drivers but nothing was fixed. i've even tried Regcure.

i just formatted my notebook and voila its back to normal.
i dunno but i think playing loud music using laptop, or in my case notebook speakers would cause this problem. im using external speakers now and i've got no problems. i just hope that there would be a fix to this problem so that i wont have to reformat if the problem occurs again

Sound distortion


Try updating the drivers for your sound card. Online tutorials available at ms http://support.microsoft.com/?LN=eng by searching your OS + update hardware drivers.
I'd also check at www.hp.com support for your notebook and see if there are any newer firmware releases for the sound installed on your system.
