Question about HP Pavilion dv1000 Notebook

2 Answers

HP DV1000 I have had my HP DV1000 for about 2 yrs with no problems. One day it just shut off during use and I thought nothing of it restarted with no problems. Then about a week later the laptop would not boot, figured I got a virus, so inserted the recovery disk to reformatt and it starts processing and then would shut off in the middle of it, no the laptop turns on for like 10 sec and shuts off. I took out the harddrive and started it and it boots and tells me no HD. So I'm guessing its the HD right? Also if it is that and I buy a new one do i have to by a new OS, since my laptop only came with a recovery disk and not a full version of OS?

    I had a problem with no backlight on the screen so I replaced the inverter. The screen works now but I reformatted the HD and can not reinstall the operating system because it shuts down about 1/2 way through the process. Do I have another hardware with this piece of HP junk or I am doing something wrong in installation. I have repartitioned and reinstalled the operating system on this machine about 3 or 4 times because of other problems.

My HP Compaq 6735s.I got it as a present from my


I hate Compaq since HP bought them out yrs ago. Anyways a few suggestions.
1 unplug it and take the battery out and wait say 5 minutes put it back in and all and turn on. Still nothing? Try leaving the battery out and just plug it in and turn on..... No? Put any disk in the drive and try both with battery and plugged in and without battery.

I've had this irritation with my Dell a few times. I turn it on and nothing but a blank screen. If you have anything plugged into it such as phone or other usb devices unplug them. they do sometimes interfere. The dvd/cd drive Did the same to me even when I first bought my unit but after a while of just leaving a disk in the drive it quit. I asked about that problem myself and it's nothing to worry about. If the problem does persist I would suggest running a few system scans updating drivers and scanning for spyware trojans malware virus' and so on. these can cause such problems

My acer aspire 9300 overheated and donno what to do


Overheating When the CPU overheats then it will shut down (i.e. thermal overload) and won't boot up again until it has cooled down. If this is the problem is not fixed then the CPU will eventually fail.
A faulty fan causes the problem or the fan and heat sink assembly are clogged with dust.
Check the CPU fan to see if it spins freely, if not replace the fan.
If the fan and heat sink is clogged with dust the remove the dust and make sure the vents are clear and dust free. Use a small brush and can of compressed air to do this.

Must boot 2 times to reach internet.


Just a thought...got to Start->Control Panel->Power Options

What are the settings? Is anything shutting down after a short period of time?

When it's disconnected, can you manually reconnect? Have you tried that before rebooting?

What kind of router are you using, have you modified it's settings in any way? I have some other thoughts, but maybe you shoudl answer these questions first.
