Question about HP Pavilion dv1000 Notebook
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
