Question about HP Pavilion dv9000z Notebook

1 Answer

I noticed recently a bad power supply contact on the right side of my Pavillion DV9000(GD545AV) and it is getting worse. I suppose this is where the power receptacle is attached to the motherboard. Is it easy to fix?

If you mean the jack where your Laptop's Dc adapter Plug is plugged in, you can fix it. The jack is soldered on the motherboard and the problem happens when the soldered contact points are loosen or is having problem, it can be easily fixed. But the laptop must be disassembled to do this. You need to have soldering skills, otherwise it'd be difficult to fix it. The power jack looks like this;

It'll be fitted like this on the motherboard after you've disassembled the system;

You can simply get it done from an electronic repairing shop or from a service center. It's best if you know how to use soldering iron. If the jack is bad, you can replace it, it can be purchased from any computer store or computer repairing center.

If you have problem, let me know.

Good luck.

    By trying another power adapter I found out that the jack itself is damaged (inside), not the receptacle on the motherboard. I cannot push it all the way through.

    Well look inside the Jack very carefully. If anything is stuck inside, you can clear it with a tweezer. If the pin is twisted, it's would be difficult to straightened. But before you do anything with it, take a brush, soak it with Alcohol/acetone/spirit and clean the metal pin and the outer (surrounding) contact points. Both the inner and outer metal interfaces work as terminals (+ve and -ve). You can use a screw driver if any foreign particles or rust is accumulated.

    If cleaning isn't possible I would suggest you to get another replacement. You'll need to use soldering iron to fix it. Without disassembling the laptop, it's not possible to replace the jack.

    Good luck.

    You get it wrong.

    It is not the receptacle on the motherboard, but the power adapter jack which is damaged. There is something inside which is preventing the jack to go all the way on the receptacle.

Hp pavillion dv9000 power input jack lights up and power is getting to mother board but it wont power up

Computer does not boot up The problem maybe the RAM, it is faulty or just needs reseating to make proper electrical contact.
Reseat the RAM and then boot up your laptop. If it still does not boot up then remove the RAM module/s and take them to your friendly computer repair shop and get them to test the RAM for you.

Computer keeps overheating

Your power supply has a theoretical Maximum output of 700 watts, but the problem is that the hotter it gets the lower that number becomes... It's obvious your power supply can't handle the power draw or the heat from the Graphics card when taxing it by playing games... Two things you should do:

1. Make sure you have more than just your power supply venting hot air out of your case... Adding a fan or 2 will help take some of the cooling stress off the power supply.

2. Buy a better power supply... is a place I get most of my PSU's. Read their ratings and compare specs. You will notice on that site that your particular model is not rated very high.
