Question about HP Pavilion dv1000 Notebook

1 Answer

Want to start over!

Hi there- my husband has a HP Pavilion dv 1000.  Recently when we start it up, it takes ages.  Sometimes it just sits there with a black screen and never starts up... Anyhow- we are guessing that it's a virus- but none of the 4 programs that we have installed have found anything, and neither of us are computer masters.  So- we are thinking that our best bet is to reformat the machine and start over.  BUT- we're not sure if the computer has start-up CD's that we'll need.
So- can anyone tell me if this laptop needs start-up CD's that we need to get?  The last thing we want to do is start to re-format it, and then be stuck with a useless machine!! Thanks loads

Pavilion dv 1000 battery adaptor


You may take it to a tech center to fix it or buy a new charger. As for the cost, it is almost the same. So it is better to get a new adapter.

I have a hp pavilion dv 1659 us (dv 1000) the sata drive goes bad


It will recognize the new drive if you were able to "migrate" your data from the old drive. If not, you can clean install by booting from an optical drive (changing your boot order at start-up) and using a new OS disk or your recovery disks. You might be able to perform a remote partition & format and install from one drive to the other with USB external enclosures for each drive and another computer (depending on the 100G drive's condition). I hope this helps.

Pavilion dv 1000 won't reboot, stand by nor turn off


I had this kinda problem solved on a Acer 5920 LAptop. The webcam driver was the culprit. Remove the cam driver for the same, the windows driver will take over and then i guess it will work fine. I figure its a driver issue or a TSR program not quitting. If this fails try uninstalling recently addes program or driver.

SD card reader


1) There is SD card reader on pavilion dv 1000, so you need adapter in which you insert mini SD card to make it SD
2) If you have that adapter, check adapter. Maybe it's broken.
3) If your card is biger, like 2GB or higher you may try updatenig drivers (I read on one web page: " There was a software update for support of reading and using higher memory SD cards, for my pavilion ZV5000, on the HP Software update website." )
