Question about HP Pavilion dv6000z Notebook
When I turn on my computer the screen is real faint, then it goes blank. I have tried the repair on utube, which is take out the battery push the power button for 1 min, plug in the ac cord and then turn on the computer. That does not work.....
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!
