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

These are well known for the heatsink getting off kilter on the cpu due to a design flaw and shorting Caps and MOSFET's.. If its dead I'd say this is your issue..

My HP Pavilion a000 is turning on, but has a black screen. I looked at the possible problems, and sure enough, some of the capacitors were leaking. Problem is, how do I replace these capacitors? Do I...


we are fixya not HP, so.... why ask here? and not HP real>?
OLD DESKTOP?: a000 is not the real model , only part.'
is this PC ,13 years old. ?
not even the word desktop stated once, wow.
my wild guess is it is a DT, due to super easy motherboard viewings. if not , say so please..

no full service tag stated, it has model and full p/n on it.
See my photo at end. (long post) lacking that.
HP made VAST pc with A000 , as part of much larger P/n
tag line 1 ,3 and 5 tells the helper what is REALLY there.
it even tells us if the parts are for USA. are you?

NO OS STATED in your post.
a000 is a very old PC and has the CAP disease, the china clone caps classical failure.. (well known) 1999 to 2003
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Capacitor_plague
so many questions, who fix it, why not just buy another newer PC, that has w7 on it already, the one that is not a virus magnet like XP. (or VISTA junk) W7/8/10 years.

you will not replace the caps easy, (takes special tools) {I can}
there are no new motherboards, HP does not sell things this old.
that leaves used, or (omg NOS) motherboards with the same useless China noname caps in it, why go there? avoid this and run from the box. (I would)

the unstated OS , is problematic here, XP will not let you change the mobo, and MS stopped taking calls in XP and VISTA>
so cant force activation that way, why go down this path.?
what I'd do is buy a usde PC with W7 coa sticker on this side
or newer' (COA is the OS license from MS)

for $100 or near, i can find a PC desktop. that is
vastly better that yours.
but if compelled to run bad motherboards same year.
then if I had your service tag , i could in fact point to them sold used, and be a match , exactly, the HP parts surfer lets me do that.(ask)_

first tell what OS is there? of the 14 used.
then post full service tag for 10x batter answers.
in 2006 HP added the new F11 key. started the year 2006
so if PC is that or newer the F11 recovery key works and you dont need any
HP (unstated) OS(unstated) install media (CDs)
see? how that service tag is magical?

what I'd do is get a newer PC. I bet yours is 2003 or older, i do.
here is the best solution for an upgrade.
id never buy any MOBO with those caps onboard. EVER.
here are some great whys to get a better machine
and not go broke.

LEGACY PAIN: my wild guess , is yours is here.?
off the HP legacy page? if use scrap it.

what is your 1,3,5? only this matters, first. and unstated
next is OS, what OS is running any PC from HP runs 6 or more OS
sold new, even linux ,freedos and P/S2 ! and w95 up
tag_service1-1iohaobt0khnrlk3utl25c3h-4-0.jpg tell more and get x10 better responses !
Like do you need mobility?
do you need W10 or 64bit support. (be wise)
do you want the PC to last 10 more years? or 1 week.
what APPS do you run if any, or only use IE6 the virus magnet.
do you use the internet (LOL)
do you need the MS CLOUD.
the list is endless but this is basic.
did you ask friends if they have a used PC they don't want
or would sell for $10?

Cant get my hp PAVILION DV6000 built-in webcam to work.


try using a real HP driver yet?
downloaded from whom, most non HP sites are virus pits from H3LL.
know that first.
finding drivers for obsolete systems is super hard work.

Pavilion dv6000 (is that the full partnumber or the useless series number)? post the service tag for 10x better answers.
if at HP.com (where you should have gone first) they demand that first. that is because, there are 50 LT in that series.or more
and guess what they all dont use the same chips nor cameras.

carbon date,,,, 2006 ,2007?
just about 10 years old and support ends at 10 years old
XP is dead now for 3 years why run XP
XP must have SP3 loaded, service pack 3 or USB is no good and vast other things super bad.. (old old history that)


only this matters, see those xx below, all facts here matter.
1,2,3 , all do. to match drivers; to OS. just 1 example here of 1000
9000-ppec2icix4tk32ykqb2dko55-5-0.jpg here is the dead files on this LT
deep dead.
http://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Printers-Archive-Read-Only/Windows-7-Upgrade-Guide-for-dv6000-dv9000-models/td-p/179816


if you read the real service manual on any HP laptop made
you learn fast there are vast variances in chips used.
and matching drivers same,
some have 3 -4 wifi chips different. in one model.
like this DV6000-1234, see that 1234, vast models exist.
world wide in fact.

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 !

Stand-by


Go to Start-Control Panel-Power options
there is an option for standby mode adjust accordingly, when you preformed a system recovery it probably set standby to never.

Hope this solves your problem, feel free to post back if it doesn't. Feel free to leave positive feedback, and thank you for stopping by Fixya!

HP Pavilion zv 5316 us Recovery Discs


fixha sells you nothing, its just chat box free.
and is not HP,why ask here.

good luck finding free disks.
good luck matching exact model, that 's right exact.
and never post email addresses, unless getting SPAM for 1000 years is fun, or safe.

why post here at all, ask real HP>
https://h30434.www3.hp.com/

HP does not sell disks on non-supported PC,s (too old)
so ask them , or find them on ebay, or use craigs list
and post WTB wanted to buy, this is not buy sell forum here at fixya but good luck if you do get offers.
see the 2 links below, that are 2 ,HP recommended 3rd party selles
of install disks.
by the way, if buy disks from random sells, they will be infected.
if XP , x1000 that. idea.....
