Question about HP Compaq Presario V5000T Notebook

5 Answers

HP motherboard tattoo

Very frustrated. I have tried most every resource possible. HP doesn't answer and "so called" authorized service centers stare dumbly when I ask. Independent shops are clueless.

V5101US notebook in perfect working order. I have replaced the motherboard. The system now needs to be tattooed with DMI data. Who has the software or can do the task?

    Shut down under threat of legal action from HP.

  • Bob Feb 16, 2008

    Code Purple advertised HP tattoo software on ebay until a week ago. He stopped under threat of legal action by HP.

    Does anyone have this simple piece of sofware?

  • Bob Feb 16, 2008

    That's HP and they really will not help consumers. All they offer is mail-in repair at a price that exceeds the value of the computer.

    Thanks anyway.

  • Bob Feb 16, 2008

    Thank you. Machine boots and runs fine. No workaround needed. I replaced a defective motherboard and just want to get the thing tattoed so recovery disks and HP update sites will work correctly.

  • Bob Feb 17, 2008

    Thank you to everyone for your assistance. My problem has been solved.

    Spare Parts Warehouse http://www.sparepartswarehouse.com/ performs this task for a reasonable price.

  • Bob May 13, 2008

    Spare Parts Warehouse failed me. They did not have the software utility and could not get it from HP. Machine returned as-is, no charge.



    Problem solved - HP utility, provided temporarily by another source, tattooed the machine in 5 minutes.

Hi,

Question...are you able to boot up your laptop? Or does it give an error code purple? If it doesn show this error code. Here is a workaround if you can't find the untilty (they are very hard to come by but you probably already know that). Here is the workaround.

As far as I know the tatoo utility should be contained in HP boot cd1. HP doesnt distribute tatoo dmi utility alone, and is not even easy to find pirate downloads on the Internet, as they are very active in removing them. therefore you need to ask a fresh copy of recovery cd from hp, in case you dont have them anymore. Here is some general info on hp tattoing and where to locate the utility, but probably you know it already.

Hope this helps a bit,

cheers

Can't turn on power


Plug it in......

Oh, sorry for the Dell Tech Support Answer....

Try this:

Unplug the PC, Remove the battery from the Motherboard (it's there, you'll see it), wait 1 minute, replace the battery, and plug the comkputer back in. Hit the power button again. If this does not work, the next step would be to replace to power supply (unless of course this is a laptop, then it would be off to the nearest authorized service center.)
