Question about HP Pavilion dv1000 Notebook

2 Answers

Pullin my hair out

I have a simular situation to a post you responded too. I have an HP Pavilion dv1000 that is about 4 years old. It was in standby mode when i opened it, a few lights flickered on then black.......nothing. I took it to a guy here in town he cant fix it, says send it to HP. He did say that its getting power which i already figured out from that lil lightening bolt and that the hard drive is ok. Well how does he know if the hard drive is ok, if it wont come on? Anyhow, do you perchance have any suggestions that I could try?

Thanks

What is the Lifespan of CD Drives? I have an HP dv7 that seems like the cd rom is not communicating well with the machine. Could it be software related?


Burning CD-R or DVD-R shortens the life cycle of any CD-R or DVD-R drive, while reading is generally. If you have burnt 1 disc per day, it is not surprising your DVD-RW drive is worn out.

1 detail to take into consideration: if you use ReWritable media, change them from time to time. I thought my DVD-Recorder was dead as I got a lot of non responding issue with DVD+RW media (while my computer had no problem to read these media), and finally getting rid off the old media and taking newer DVD+RW media has given the DVD-Recorder 3 more years.

My hp pavilion zd8000 laptop with XP installed will not allow me to load a golf game from a CD Rom I purchased some 14 years ago. I used to have this installed a nd played regularly on a previous computer.


The game may be not supported with the current Operating System Perhaps!!! What was your old computer's Operating system? And since the CD-ROM is 14 years old does it has too many scratch?? These days computer CD/DVD drives will never read the disc if they are scratched...

Finally, when you try installing the game, do you encounter any error message? if yes please post it....always remember if your posting your problem in forum, make sure that you provide all information about the issue.

My 3 year old HP Pavilion DV6605US keeps rebooting with a blank screen every few seconds. What should I look for in order to correct the situation? Shield509


Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions,IDE,SATA

the leads from your ((motherboard to your hard drive)) make sure they have a secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them there probably old and faulty
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd have secure connections and are not faulty even the electrical extensions or just replace them they are probably old and faulty a computer needs its connections to have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error

one faulty lead will cause a computer to fail to detect a hard drive,continously reboot, shut down a computer
hope this helps

HP service centre Vimannagar,yerwada or Bund


It seems that you have this device since long time i mean more than a year . sometimes tiny pieces of dust or hair get inside between the gears of the CD driver mechanism and corrupt it . In such situation i recommend you to get it to the service , if you still have the guarantee . or take to a repair shop instead . Don't do it yourself unless you are familiar with such mechanisms . rate this please !
