Question about HP Pavilion dv1310 Notebook

1 Answer

Lappy is dead mon.

My HP Pavilion dv1310us is about 2 years old. Has a good heart, gets the job done, even upgraded it to 2GB of RAM.

Lappy was doing some odd things in the past few months, like not starting unless the battery was removed (bought a new battery in case that was the issue, but it wasn't), then just going "blip" and shutting off instantaneously. The fan works to cool the system processor, so it''s not overheating I don't think.

Now, the problem is extreme, will not start up. No light will even light up. Tried identical power supply from a friend, did not repair problem. Thinking the pin for power input in the back of PC unit, or maybe not a good connection from power to pin or ?? Should the light come on in front (visible if notebook is closed) if power is simply coming into unit, seems like it should but manual says only turns on when unit is on.

Re: Lappy is dead mon.

Question: have you replaced the RAM by yourself??? do you get the problem before or after the replacement?

if you get the problem after replacement your RAM probably have static groundings... it was get from not demagnitizing your hands and tools before installing a RAM... if you still got the old RAM... clean the contact points and the RAM socket first and test the old RAM to your unit... if you stop having problems just return your 2gb RAM and ask for a replacement...

You can upgrade to 2Gb ram. I dont think your notebook will support 4Gb ram. A 2Gb Transcend ram will cost you around 1500 bucks INR

HP Pavilion laptop freezes daily and i force manual shutdown

It sound's like there could be a compatibility problem, maybe corrupt file's, or missing start up file's, have you tried doing a window's update, or doing a disc check on the hard drive, go to my computer right click the drive then go to propertie's, click on tool's then click check now for drive error's. if that do'es not work you may need to reformat back to the original xp os.

Ram capacity on HP Pavillion dv2120us

nope....that 2 gig is true..and the reason it may be invisible is that it is not seated properly, or, it is mismatched..

Not sure whether the issue started after upgrading the RAM or not.

Beeps indicates many codes.

Current situation can be with Video/Graphic Card of the Notebook which might have failed. Contact the place of purchase if the Notebook is under warranty and get it repaired.

If the Notebook was purchased from US, you need to contact HP Chat Support dedicated for US and provide the required details to get the options.

Link to contact Chat Support :

Fill in the required details and go ahead with chating with the technicians available via chat support.

HP Pavilion DV2000 running very slowly

Yes! I would not recommend anything below 2GB at minimum. I have one laptop with 2GB and one with 3GB: they both open programs and browse the internet very quickly. Even with just two programs open (Internet Explorer and Outlook 2007) it uses 1.1GB of memory.

Definitely upgrade your memory. I recommend this site:

Just pick your model and they recommend the memory to pruchase. TIP: order with next day shipping - it's only $10. The free shipping takes 14 days. So unless you're patient (I'm not) the $10 many be worth it.
