Question about HP Pavilion dv4000 Notebook

1 Answer

Is this dv4000 dead?

We recently came into possession of this dv4000 and I'd be grateful for any thoughts on whether it is completely kaput or if there is anything that may be checked on to see if it can avoid the landfill.
When turning it on the little diodes in the keys light up but that is all; nothing else happens. I connected it to another monitor but on that monitor came up the words "No Signal". I put a disk into the disk drive and could hear it definitely spinning.

As I say I would be grateful for any thoughts on this including sending it to the landfill if it will essentially cost a bundle to repair. Many thanks

Phone not charging ways to fix

Your phone could fail to charge for a number of reasons. 1. Check all connections -- charger to phone, battery within phone (did you drop it recently?) charger to wall socket, etc. Make sure connections are clean and well-fitting. 2. Make sure your battery is IN your phone, or that the back plate isn't loose letting the battery wiggle. 3. Has the phone been damaged by electricity or water? How old is the battery? If all else fails, take the phone to a battery store. They can test the battery and tell you whether the battery has failed, and sell you a new one that sshould charge, or whether the phone is kaput.

What are the rules of Air Hockey?

Here are some basic rules as defined by the USAA:
  • A face-off or coin toss decides which player gets the first possession of the puck.
  • The first person to score 7 points by shooting the puck into the opponent's goal wins the game. When the puck breaks the horizontal plane inside the goal, a point is counted, whether or not captured by the electronic scoring device.
  • Once the puck is on a certain player's side of the center line, he/she has 7 seconds to hit the puck back across the center line. Otherwise a foul is committed and the opponent receives possession of the puck.
  • Placing one's mallet on top of the puck, known as topping, is a foul. Here the opponent receives possession of the puck.
  • A player cannot touch or strike the puck with any part of his/her body or with any object other than the mallet. Doing so causes a foul and possession changes hands.
  • If the puck is on a clear path into the goal and the player stops it with anything other than the mallet, this is goaltending. Here the opponent receives a free shot.
  • Hitting the puck when it is on the opposite side of the center line, or crossing the center line completely with one's mallet causes a foul. Here the opponent receives possession of the puck.
  • Red lines in the air hockey should not be crossed by the air hockey mallet. (Catalan Champion Chip)
  • If there is a red line on the goals, it means that you cannot keep the air hockey mallet behind the red line. (Catalan Champion Chip)
  • If the puck leaves the table, a foul is called on the player that caused the puck to go out of play due to offensive motion and the opposing player gets possession of the puck. Generally, when a player causes the puck to leave the table with a forward motion of the mallet, even defensively (known as charging), the foul is charged on them. An out of play foul results in the opponent receiving possession of the puck.
  • The players playing cannot touch the puck at any time during pl ay, but if one player scores they can put the puck in loser's side.

Anything is fixable for a price. Even though you don't want to here this, the price of repair exceeds the cost of replacement with a newer technology.
