Question about HP Pavilion dv9000z Notebook
Laptop starts to bootup and seems to stop. Blank screen. Caps lock light is flashing
Sorry to hear you are having problems. I have had this same issue before with this particular model. The following solution works 90% of the time.Perform a hard reset
as the first procedure.
Blink codes are often displayed after a user adds memory to the computer but does not seat the module properly. The LEDs may also blink error codes if a hardware component is loose because the computer was dropped or jarred. Some HP Notebook PCs come with one stick of memory but have two memory slots. The problem could be that the stick of memory or one of the memory slots has a bad connection. The memory module compartment on most notebooks is located on the bottom of the case. The exact position varies by model. However, on some models, the memory compartment is under the keyboard. See your User Guide for the exact location of memory modules on your notebook.
Use the following steps to remove and reseat the memory modules: Step 1 - Remove the electrical power To remove all power from the computer and prevent accidental damage to the electronic components, do the following:
1 - Pull the retention clips away from sides of the memory module
2 - Gently pull the module out of the memory module slot
After reseating the memory module, replace the cover over the memory compartment before restarting the computer
