Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

Hi, our HP Pavilion dv9310ca went blank last night whilst we were browsing the web. The hard drive light doesn't seem to be doing anything. When the power is on the auto fan runs intermitently. Ever so often the blue keyboard operating lights flash off. I have removed the battery, turned off the ac supply, reseated the ram cards and reseated the hard drive. I have attached an external monitor but can't get an image by pressing the Fn + F4??

Your DV9000 has experienced what we call the black screen of death for most DV series laptops that have not had their motherboards serviced since new. There is a chip on the motherboard made by Nvidia and it controls a great deal of what happens on the 9000. This laptop has had a design and workmanship flaw since leaving production. The solder points on the chip are the weak link, it's not Nvidia'a fault, I would say it is the fault of HP for not listening to its customers and not realizing that they have failed the public miserably. Your motherboard has to be "reflowed" or replaced. It is cheaper to try and reflow the board, which is reheating the motherboard to allow the solder to flow and reconnect to all the connections on the chip. This usually does the trick 90% of the time. For the other 10%, the board will need to be replaced.

Screen goes blank and black


Hi,
This can be due to many factors..

try the following steps..

1. Disconnect the battery and the ac adapter and hold down the power button for 2 Mins. This will drain the static.

2. reseat the memory chips..Its located at the back on the compartment that has an icon that looks line 2 square boxes beside each other. Try with one memory chip at a time.
also reseat the hard drive.

If it still does not work then you may have to get it repaired.

Hope this helps..
Regards,
Anup

Pavilion dv6000t screen won't come on.


I had this exact problem with a customers computer andi found out that HP put faulty motherboards in the DV6000, DV9000, Compaq V6000 Series Computers. Thankfully HP fixing all computers for free and extending the warranty even if the warranty has expired they will ship you a box and you ship it off and they fix it at no cost. the turn around period is about 7 days.

Here is a link to an article that talks about it

I have a crappy HP pavillion dv6000 laptop, after working fine on shutdown last night, i turned on this morning and it would not boot up. the lights on the volume bar lit up, flashed, and went off...thats...


It's acting like the juice is drained in the battery. Are you sure it's charged? Do you have a spare battery you can swap out?

Some of them come with two. I actually have the same series laptop (a Pavilion dv6258se, 6000 series), and they can be a little flaky.

I also had an issue where my HP power cable (that connects the laptop to the wall outlet) was faulty, and needed to be replaced, because it stopped charging the battery. I ended up purchasing a generic replacement power cable on eBay.

Won't boot.


Hello Lunartiger, i have one suggestion. My 4 year old toshiba satellite has had the same problem (almost.....). It would not boot or format. the hard drive's running sound was weird. It would do tic-tic-tic... instead of the normal chirrrrrrr.... I thought the hard drive was broken . So i went to a computer shop and replaced its original toshiba hard drive with a cheap refurbished Fujitsu hard drive. It's been working well(maybe faster) since then. If your hard drive sounds different then before, consider buying a new one. search the web for your laptop's motherboard to see where the CMOS bettery is. I used irisvista.com for my laptop but they might not have hp laptops there
