Question about HP Pavilion dv1000 Notebook

1 Answer

Dead DV1000 Hey, I did not notice the motorcycle! I ride a Roadstar, Yamaha 2001, which I use to commute to work - about 22 miles away. I have about 89,000 miles on it. Took a trip from Sacramento to Ames, Iowa to visit my folks and dropped in on Sturgis on the way back. Too many people! I appreciate the help - I hope it is not some transient electrical problem! Disconnected power. Removed battery. Removed HD. Removed RAM. With DVM, confirmed power cord good. Inserted power cord and tested on two points of the female junction & power was there (didnt have my glasses on, so I didnt interpet the reading) Blue LED face panel was dark. Depressed the power button, and I get Blue LED power indicator light. Fan turns on for about 3 seconds and turns off. Power button depressed, but BLUE LED remains on (to indicate connected to a/c cord??) Unplug the a/c cord from notebook. Installed HD Installed 1 memory stick. Still no battery installed. Plug in a/c power cord. Blue LED face panel still dark. Depress power button. Blue LED face plate indicates Power & HD Fan turns on for 3 seconds before shutting off. That's all that happens. I thought maybe the power inverter - but the fan turned on momentarily. My daughter was and is not very good about ensuring air flow around the sides and bottom of the note book/laptop. If it overheated, would this be a symptom that something fried?

    Hello Benimur,

    No beeping when attempting to power up the unit. My daughter has purchased a new laptop, though she wants to recover her pictures and music from the hard drive. My wife will check with their computer vendor to see if he can do that for us. I am trying to salvage the notebook for me. However, my daughter informed me that if I am able to get it to work - she wants to recover her loss and sell it. Sigh...I get no respect LOL. I found a system board for about $140. I have given her the information and if she wants to purchase it, then I will install it. I am thinking she will wait a little before doing it - so if I time it right - bingo! Father's Day!!

    I like the weight of the Roadstar - especially when travelling on the highway and not having to worry about the wind. I like to ride 300-500 miles a day on road trips. Though, with gas at almost $4 a gallon I can't see myself doing that often. The longest was 1447miles - I was trying for 1500 miles in 24 hours - but I was just too tired - and SADDLE SORE! Lately I have not been on any long rides. I would feel better if I had an overhaul done on the motor. I had planned on riding in the Rolling Thunder, from Ontario California (near L.A.), then cross country 200-300 miles a day, until you arrive at the Vietnam Memorial in Washington DC. It takes about 10 days to do the ride out. They stop at schools and War Memorials on the way out. My goal is to do that when I turn 55 - so I will make that run May 2010. Either on a refurbished Roadstar or it will be time to get another motorcycle to make the journey.

    Thanks again for your help. What part of the Philipinnes are you? I visited the Philipinnes in the 70's but never got away from the base to see the country. I wish I had.

Appreciate the update.

The bike is a Suzuki Intruder 800 and here in the Philippines it is a really BIG bike considering our Asian height and weight. Like you, it is my daily workhorse. For weekends, I try to remember my younger years onboard a GSX.

Unto your concern. re inverter, technically the inverter is used to power the CCF lamps that provides the backlight of the LCD panel display. if it is not working, at most would be a very very dark desktop, blower fans working, laptop making correct beeping sounds, audio when booting would be heard.

I would initially suspect not a powersupply issue since if there is any, the unit's LEDs will not even lite up.

You may have something on the overheated components (even perhaps the CPU itself). Often fan shutting down indicates that the built-in protection circuitry has just kicked in and shut the system (including the power supply) down to prevent further damage to the other components.

You can still try; no battery AC adapter only, no HD, 1 RAM, and check if you can hear a beeping sound when powered up. If none, then chances are the system is not completely powering on and indicates a major problem. If yes, then that is a good sign, that would mean the BIOS is still working.

Additionally, you can try a can of compressed air to clear any dust or blockage on the fan and/or ventilation holes. Pls determine if any of the large chips are heating up when powered on even if only momentary). this would be an indicator of a defective chipset (and includes the processor itself). I am assuming that the motherboard is bare with the adapter plug in to the power jack.

Incidentally, on some units I've worked on, the unit will not powerup if it can not detect a keyboard present.

As initially queried, have you considered a replacement whole unit? Perhaps your daughter's reservation may be because of some important files which of course can be copied to the HD on the new laptop. In most instances, the cost of a refurb is not that far with the cost of a new motherboard. the plus side is the time element.

Would appreciate further update (if any or even the lack of it).



The Roadstar would be too big a big bike for me (5'4"/135lbs). LOL

    Ooops, failed to add, when trying with no battery AC adapter only, no HD, 1 RAM, pls try to remove any and all other cards such as WiFi, LAN/NIC, and others.

    I would have to say your lucky being able to get the motherboard for $140 which would be a very reasonable price. Good luck on your Father's Day wish, I hope your daughter doesn't see the "hidden agenda" for the delay in repair(s). I couldn't hide anything from my kids having grown up in a techies home. All three have suffered electrical shocks (220VAC) at one time or another when they were young and have been working with and on computers since they can climb the stool. I would be turning 52 by June and am currently based in a coastal town south of Manila, Nasugbu. Often the weekends are spend with the entire family on a ride as all have their own bikes or fishing. Back in the 70's, everything would have been greener, better, cooler, nicer. Still given the chance, come back and visit.

    Ride safe my friend and pls drop a line every now and then even just to say hi.

HP Pavilion DV1000 doesnt start up.

The unit is not finding any boot drives and is trying to boot from a network.

Make sure no disks are in a floppy or cd drive, and if so, remove and try to reboot.

You may have a dead or troubled hard drive.

Seems like the program that controls your special keys (volume control) causes your computer to freeze!

You have to look for a bad connection on MB. You have a broken trace from openning and closing. You need micro-soldering iron to fix it.
