Hi errol245,

When you say it's 'locked' do you mean you can't access the BIOS (System Setup) information when the computer first boots, or are you unable to get into Windows?

New DC jack, powers up but no display. Strange power LED behavior.

No Rob, you aren't running out of options. You just haven't diagnosed far enough, because you don't know the path.........hence where I come in.........

Using the HP Pavilion dv6000 series, and Pavilion dv9000 series of Notebook PC's, as an example,

There are two Power MOSFET's being used.
The Fairchild Semiconductor Industries - FDS6679 - Power MOSFET, and the Alpha & Omega Semiconductor LTD - AO4407 Power MOSFET.

Both of these P.MOSFET's are Obsolete. However there are cross reference examples given. Let's look at two of these examples, and also note the cost,
One dollar and one penny - USD
78 cents - USD

How do i replace a keyboard on a pavilon 9700 laptop

Hi there
This is quite easy but you need to take your time. HP wont issue manuals easily but you may be able to get one from here This will show you how to do it. Failing that look here You don't need all of this, please scroll down until you see KEYBOARD REMOVAL INSTRUCTIONS
All the best now, take your time and lock yourself away so you are not interupted.

MY hp pavilion dv9000 does not come when I try to cut on. It holds a charge but it tries to come on then turns off.

Does the computer work with an AC adapter?...if it does, you'll have to get a new battery....Jeff

My HP Pavilion dv9000 does not have an HDMI PORT. How can I hook it up to my HDTV?

Well this is the way this machine was designed with only select models having a HDMI port and if your notebook does not have it built in there is no way of creating one on your PC. If there is any display card(like TV tuner) which can be used in a slot then maybe its possible, otherwise not..............sodeep

Turning on the computer, it doesn´t turn on

See if your unit qualifies for HP's limited warranty, mine did and they repaired it for free.
HP has identified a hardware issue with certain HP Pavilion dv2000/dv6000/dv9000 and Compaq Presario V3000/V6000 series notebook PCs, and has also released a new BIOS for these notebook PCs, version F.39 for dv2000/V3000, and version F.3D for dv6000/dv9000/V6000.

Click on this link or copy and paste the complete link into your browser.
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

HP Pavilion dv9000 usb ports stopped working

With what you've tried, more than likely the USB ports are bad on your laptops motherboard. You need to contact a HP repair center and send it in. Hopefullu it is still under warranty. Here is the support website.

I believe the bios on my hp pavilion dv9000 is having problems. the problem i have is that the time and date are always wrong. is there any way i can fix this myself?

Hi Rmellon,

I understand that your PC time and dates keeps changing. I suspect the issue is due to the CMOS battery. I suggest you to change the battery. It will not cost you much. I have included the link which clearly shows a video on how to change the real-time clock battery. Please getin touch with me if you need clarification. It is specific to your dv9000 model.

Steps for Removing and Replacing the Real-Time Clock Battery:-

I am pretty sure it is due to the CMOS. Let me know whether it fixes your issue. If you don't wish to do the above you could also try the following

Let me knwo the response you get.

Thanks & Regards

No way at all. You will need to use a software package to reset the password. I use Winternals ERD Commander. The only other option is to relaod the operating system. Sorry. If this helps you please give the solution a FixYa. Thanks BPCS
