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

The LCD of my packard bell laptop, get crack..broken..Is it possible to replace the Lcd and where to go in Manila?pls answer me back..thanks a lot


Welcome to FixYa!

If I'm not mistaken, Packard Bell does not have a company branch here in the Philippines.
I suggest that you have it serviced to an authorized Packard Bell service center or to the Distributors service center which is Axis Global Philippines, if they have one.

Contact Axis Global: 724-3340 and inquire of their nearest accredited service center in your area.
Thank you for using FixYa.
Keep me posted.

This issue could be due to any of the following reasons: 1. Accumulation of static power. 2. Loose Connection of RAM. 3. AC Adapter malfunction. 4. Any hardware failure in the motherboard. In order to isolate and confirm the issue, please perform the following steps: Step 1: Power Drain Due to regular use of the notebook, some static charges tend to stay in the computer, and sometimes results in not allowing the computer to function properly.

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.
