Question about HP Compaq Presario V5000T Notebook

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.

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

How to replace the belt on bissell healthy home vacumn


I think this is a terrible answer.. but after researching everywhere on how to change the belt, most answers were to look up the owners manual. So I looked it up online. this is all it has on changing the belt:
"Belt maintenance
The brush belt is designed to last the useful life of the cleaner when used according to all
instructions in the user guide under normal household conditions. If you feel that it needs to
be checked or replaced, call BISSELL Consumer Services or visit the website to locate an authorized service center. Do not attempt to disassemble the vacuum foot to change the belt."

Frustrating! Good luck!

Hp dv5-1002 laptop will not turn on. I've tried removing the battery. but wont turn on at all.


This could be because of a loos RAM. I would suggest you to take the laptop to the HP Pavilion Service Center. And If the issues is same as what I suspected, then the service center might be able to fix this issue in just 10 minutes and they might not even charge you for this. Please note, only go to the authorized HP service center.

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.)

Error 100a


HP uses a Tattoo system that has to be applied to the Motherboard and the Hard Drive. That error indicates that one of those is missing. You will have to get the tattoo program from HP.

Showing a red line at the center on the monitor of my hp note book (dv2713tu). I think my video card or lcd panel is faulty.What might be the cause? If my video card/ lcd panel is to be replaced, Please...


FIRST OF ALL TRY CONNECTING YOUR NOTEBOOK TO ANOTHER MONITOR...THIS WILL TELL IF THE LCD SCREEN IS FAULTY OR YOUR VIDEO CARD. IF YOUR LCD SCREEN IS FAULTY AND YOU WANT TO DO IT YOURSELF http://www.insidemylaptop.com/remove-lcd-screen-inverter-board-hp-pavilion-dv9000-laptop/all-comments/ A VERY USEFUL SITE.SCREEN WOULD COME IN BETWEEN $150-200 YOU CAN CHECK AT EBAY FOR THE APPROX. PRICE,YOU CAN EVEN CALL THE HP COMPANY AND ASK FOR THE REVISED RATES THAT WILL GIVE YOU AN IDEA. IT IS NOT THAT EASY WITH THE VIDEO CARD BECAUSE IT'S USUALLY ATTACHED TO THE MOTHERBOARD AND CONSIDER THAT YOU HAVE TO SPEND MORE BUCKS THAN THE SCREEN FOR A GOOD VIDEO CARD. I WOULD STRONGLY RECOMMEND TO TAKE IT TO AN AUTHORIZED SERVICE CENTER.

Motherboard tattoo


motherboard tattoo is a unique code that can be written in the bios of the motherboard, I beleave this code can be changed, removed or added by first extracting the full bios of the motherboard and useing a hex editor to manipulate the information. This modifyed bios can then be flashed back into the motherboard bios chip.

http://www.scribd.com/doc/3352/HPTZ-tattooing-motherboard-handout

This is a advanced process and I would recommend agains doing it - there is a chance of rendering the motherboard bios useless and if you don't have the hardware required to hot flash the bios back you might have to take the motherboard in for service or replace it as warranty is void when you do this.

If you still wish todo this you now know the basic process you will have to figure out how to extract a bios, how to use a hex editor and how to flash a bios. There may be easyer ways to do this.
