Question about HP Pavilion dv4000 Notebook

1 Answer

Hp Pavillion ze4900

My laptop was purchased from Best Buy several years ago. I am trying to decide if it can be fixed or if I need to trash it. My harddrive has stopped working. It started making a grinding noise and windows wil now not start up. If I purchase a new harddrive or a new laptop, can I save my information? I also need a new battery. Will I have to upgrade to Vista or can I keep Windows 2000? Do I need to take the laptop to your store in Wilmington, NC or mail it back to HP? Please let me know which way I need to proceed and thanks for your help.

The way things sound, you definately need a new hard drive and battery. as for saving the information, thats a little dicy. its more than probable an expert can, but it may turn out to be difficult. As for where to send it, i'd say take it to the closest best buy and they will be able to help you amptly.
You will only have to upgrade to vista if you buy a new computer as a whole. you can still stay with 2000 if thats what you prefer.

My hp pavillion ze4900 laptop is having display problems. It works if you plug it in to the moniter but either way if you don't plug it in or not. the laptop itself will not picture anything. Well i can...


1. Test using an external monitor. If it works, then either the screen bulb or the inverter board might be defective.
2. Test the inverter. Easiest way to do it if you have a good screen with a good bulb. Connect the good screen to the inverter board & test it. If it lights up, then the inverter board is good. If it did not, then the inverter board is bad & needs to be replaced.
3. If the inverter board is good, then we are left with the possibility that the screen bulb is bad. To fix this, we will need to replace the LCD screen.

No power from cord to computer


Hi...

If your laptop is under warranty go back to the manufacturer. If not go to hp center and buy a power cord of your charger which is totally fix to the charging hole.

Good luck

HP Pavillion DV93100 - does NOT power up


Seems that you have one of the RECALLED laptops from HP the folks at BB should have mentioned that before they charged you for a temporary if not futile fix, as the mainboard overheats to the point of inevitable FAILURE!
(although HP will not really admit culpability either)

Do a Google search on HP dv9000 series recall, thousand of others also share your plight.

I HAVE THE SAME PROBLEM.MY HP NOTE BOOK IS HP PAVILLION DV6910.IT,S POWER ON.THEN NOTHING HAPPENED.ONLY A BLANK SCREEN.......DON'T BUY HP NOTEBOOK................


You can try a few small things you could try like reseating the memory and booting without the battery, but MAJORITY of the time it's the motherboard with HP's DV series laptops.

Now's a nice time to check your warranty status here:

They just extended a number of the warranty lengths so even if you purchased more than a year ago you should check their site.
