Question about HP Pavilion dv9000z Notebook

6 Answers

HP Pavilion DV 9000 Laptop screen freezes at certain points in theopening of the laptop. Normally this only happens when just openingfrom it being turned off or asleep (powered down) It does not usuallyhappen when it has been on for a while. Sometime, instead of itfreezing where ever there should be black on the screen, it looks likethe red pixels on the screen are on so it looks like its got redlines. I can get it to go away by working the hinge back and forth afew times, then its fine.

Same problem here, having a dv9340ea notebook, 1 year warranty. It's a very common problem on this model, because of the bad design and motherboard overheating. Mine used to work for about 1 year from I bought it, but the screen is now black when I power it on, no beeps, hard drive working, windows booting (I can even hear the startup sound of Windows Vista). You can try hooking an external monitor using the D-SUB output. I did this on mine and there was video signal on the external monitor, but the only resolution possible was 640x480x4bit. I later find out the problem was the VIDEO CARD, embedded on the motherboard. In fact, it wasn't dead, but it only didn't make contact with the motherboard (it's a BGA chip and it has bad soldering). The solution is to reflow the video card BGA on a local laptop service, using infrared heating. In my town, I don't have such technology (dooh, I'm from Northern Romania), but using a heat gun on a local mobile phone service prooved this was the problem as the laptop worked fine again, but only for a couple of days.

All I can wish you is GOOD LUCK, but for me also, because this summer I'll be heading to a bigger city where they have this kind of technology and hopefully I'll get my notebook working fine again.

Dv 9000 what lcd fits it

1) 17 inch WXGA (1440 X 900 Pixels)

Here's an example;

Another one;

MAIN THING > Match the Part Number on the back of the LCD screen to the one you are going to purchase.

It isn't just whether the screen is the correct size, and dimensions. Whether it is a glossy finish, or matte.
It is that the cabling on the back of the LCD screen is correct, and the LCD screen matches the Inverter that is installed.

HP Pavillion dv5000 laptop will not load windows.

I had this problem, because I have had my HP Pavillion Dv 9000 laptop replaced 3 times. There is a recall on those laptops. The mother board is no good. HP fixes the problem at no cost to you even if it is out of warranty. There is also a freeware and software BIOS update that was just released. And if your screen ever cracks there is a recall on that as well with the left display hindge. My solution: Call HP at 800-474-6836 they are available 24/7 365. Make sure you have your notebook Model number and serial number ready.

I have an HP DV9074CL Pavilion laptop that won't boot

I bought mine in April 2007. This happened June of last year and they replaced it for free. It just happened again 2 nights ago and HP won't do anything. My fiance called them and got a case manager and said that they design their laptops to work for only 2 years to which I say if it's designed to work for 2 years, shouldn't my motherboard still be working? After this experience and numerous other problems I have had with this laptop, I am never buying an HP product again.
