Allegedly 1 in 7 Fails

Looks good and has a good spec....but!

Allegedly 1 in 7 of the DV6000 series fails. The nVidia chip is prone to overheating which in turn melts the cheap solder and detaches it from the Motherboard. HP tried and failed to correct the problem with a BIOS revision which just kept the fan running constantly.

HP's own user forums and numerous web sites are full of horror stories about these laptops and it is an absolute lottery as to whether you get a free repair under their Enhanced warranty Scheme.

Several Lawsuits have been filed in the US against nVidia and various OEM’s. At least 5 have combined for ‘Class Action’ status and I understand nVidia’s own insurance company (NUFI) of Pittsburgh has filed an action against nVidia.

If you search for nVidia Lawsuits and have the time to trawl through all of them you will get further info. An excellent article by TG Daily is available at: http://www.tgdaily.com/content/view/42472/118/

Don't waste your money on an HP laptop!

Hp 650 blank white screen


You may want to check using an external monitor.

The DV6000 series unit have problems with Video GPUs processors. If you have experienced any other kind of issues like the WiFi not working ect. you may have a bad GPU.

Try re-seating the GPU with heat gun ( View on Utube )

Hope this helps

the COin cell goes bad now, ever replace that?
HP RTC coin cell battery , tiny, a $2 fix.
they dont last for 11 years, sorry.

power button dead?
fan dead,?
screen dead. (never ever shows text)???
hdd does not spin making normal noise?
cd eject button dead.?
no beeps?
no caps lock blink codes.?
the AC pack is dead if the PC is %100 dead on AC most times

Blank Screen HP 6119 - can't start it anymore


Hi:
I would not give up on contacting HP, because several models, including dv2000, dv6000 and dv9000 had defective motherboards, and the warranty was extended. Some people got free repair, and some just got discounted repair, but don't give up!

Hi i have hp dv6000 my laptop is on but the screen is blank some time they came up and then went out again please help.


Turn the computer ON. Take a flashlight and shine it at an angle into the screen. If you still see the image on the screen most likely the inverter in the screen has went out. I would suggest taking the laptop to the local authorized repair station.
