Question about HP Pavilion dv1000 Notebook

3 Answers

Dead DV1000 Hello, my daugthers DV1000 notebook will not power up. Purchased new battery but still no power up. The blue l.e.d. indicators at the front panel, and back lit TTY keys are lit. The blue power ligthening bolt at front indicates when connected to power cord and will go out, when power cord is removed. Depressing the power on button does not start up computer. The computer fan does not run either. DVD player will not open the drive when the button is depressed & no led light indicating there is any power to that device either (from the DVD door). Notebook was not dropped or sat on, according to my dau - my first question asked. Anyone had similar problem? What trouble shooting methods can I take to isolate the problem? I have the casing off now as I was looking for an easy fix (loose wire or a loose connection). Finally, (okay, be kind) are there same size motherboards, of the next generation, that can be purchased? Where do you go to purchase them and how do you know they will fit? Matt

with the indulgence of the others.....

A couple of things you can try:
1. run the laptop without the battery and use the AC adapter only. in some cases (with new battery), the battery gobbles up all the output of the charger/adapter with nothing left for the laptop to use;
2. charge the battery for at least 16 hours with the laptop off.

Alternately and since the casing is already out, with the use of a DVM, trace the B+ from the jack. Normally, there are surface mounted fusible links and/or jumper resistors (0 ohms). You might have to wing it (and of course requires a bit of familiarity with electronic components and circuitry).

Additionally, pls ask your daughter if the laptop just died when in use or failed to power up. If it is the former, pls likewise inquire if a USB device was inserted when it died.

    As to your last query, next generation if you are considering "might as well upgrade" all laptops' motherboard are fit to the casing and varies from model to model. am afraid your options are limited to repair/replace but not upgrade the motherboard. In most cases upgrades are limited to the memory, hard drive and video card in some other versions.

    If your DIY troubleshooting confirms a motherboard issue, you may have to consider the purchase of a refurbished whole unit as it would be relatively quicker in terms of turnaround. Seeking the services of a qualified professional often results to rather expensive repairs cost plus a lot of downtime which to my experience (having 3 kids of my own) results to nerve wracking "When will it be finished?" daily inquiry.

    Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

    Good luck and kind regards.

    Thank you for using FixYa.

Since you have lights, but no power on. I would remove all drives and external devices, then try to power it up. if nothing, i would remove ram sticks and mini pci card. try it again.
if nothing, i would then take the computer apart and inspect the power button for damage. if everything looks good, i would then inspect the board for blown caps, and burnt areas. if you dont see anything i would say you prob got a bad board, or your bios flash is currupt. good luck.

Make sure that the copper colored prongs are clean that connect the battery to the computer. You probably have a hardware issue along the line of power somewhere.

I bought a new ac charger for my hp pavillion dv1000 it will not power on

Check and make sure the Voltage on the AC adapter is the exact same as your previous one. Just because the connector fits in the port, doesn't mean it's the right one. Look in your manual to figure out if your AC adapter voltage is correct. If it is, it's possible that you have a dead battery, it happens when surges happen during power outages. If it's so, look on the HP website for a new replacement battery. It should allow you to type in your pavillion model number.

Bought new power cord for pavillon dv 1000 and

If the laptop runs on batter but cannot run on the AC adapter, you have a broken DC Jack. If you laptop cannot power up with the battery or flash low battery indicator, you laptop is dead.

Laptop isn't working

have the charger tested, the original battery may have been flat, because of charger failure rather than battery failure. try an automotive connector if one is available
