Question about HP Pavilion dv6000z Notebook

Laptop response time

My laptop is running very slowly. It takes almost 5 minutes just to get to the desktop when I turn it on. I can't remember the model number, but it's an older HP laptop that I've already added and extra card to.

HP 2000-410US when turned on the power light button blinks 1 time every 5 seconds, nothing elas

1. Disconnect anything that is connected to your laptop. Usb Flash discs, External HDDs, Wireless Devices using dongles etc.
2. Make sure that your device does not receive any power i.e. Disconnect your ac cable, and remove battery from your laptop.
3. Hold down the power button for 5 seconds. This would drain remaining power from your laptop. But as the power cable and the battery are disconnected, you should not expect anything to happen.
4. Identify where your RAM is located under your laptop. Unscrew the cover off, then remove the RAM from your laptop. Replace the cover temporarily.
5. Flip over your laptop. Connect your power cable to the laptop, NOT THE BATTERY NEH! Then press the power button. Sometimes your laptop will make long beeps to let you know the RAM is not inserted in your laptop. But nothing will happen on your monitor because it needs RAM to show you something.
6. After those beeps, remove the power cable. Press the Power Button to drain remaining power on your laptop. Flip the Laptop and replace the RAM you have removed earlier.
7. Insert your power cable and try restarting your laptop and see what happens. I am sure by now you should have some response on your laptop monitor.

NB: While performing the above mentioned, remember PC or Laptop parts are delicate. Even static electricity can damage them. Thus before handling your laptop components, make sure you touch the wall or any large metal subject from time to time to discharge the static. Wear 100% cotton cloths as you are working on it. Bare feet even better to discharge the static

How to prolong the life span of your laptop battery

Instructional steps
  1. 1Use the laptop on a hard surface. This allows proper air circulation and prevents overheating. Avoid using the laptop in temperatures over 80 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. 2Remove the battery when using AC power. Once the battery is fully charged, there is no need to keep it plugged in. Residual charge drains the battery slowly, so when the battery isn't needed, take it out of the laptop and store it in a cool, safe place.
  3. 3Allow the battery to drain completely before recharging. This allows you to take advantage of the limited number of charge cycles the battery contains.
  4. 4Limit the amount of applications, programs and external devices used on the laptop at one time. Close anything that doesn't need to run. Multitasking causes the processor to run too hard, producing higher heat inside the laptop and draining the battery power.
  5. 5Use your laptop's power control program to automatically save power. Reduce the backlight on your laptop when it runs on battery power. Set the standby and hibernate modes for when you take breaks from working on the laptop.
  6. 6Store your laptop battery in a cool place. Avoid heat above 80 degrees Fahrenheit, direct sunlight and extreme cold.

New battery charging very slowly?

Power off your Laptop, unplug the power cable from the laptop as well, take the battery out and wait for about 5 minutes. Put the battery back in, make sure it is seated properly. Plug the laptop back in and power it on an see if that charges the battery quicker. If it doesn't you may have a bad battery, and I would contact the place you bought it and ask for an exchange.

When i turn on the laptop why does it takes so long to load up? and also when i click on my apllications it take 5 minutes or more to load up.....what hould i do?? it celeron

Hello. If your laptop is old it is slow because the solder in the circuit boards slowly fry over a period of a few years. The only fix is a new laptop. I personally but the cheapest one I can now days, under 400. and when it gets painfully slow I replace it.

No running the laptop without a battery will not hurt it in any way. I would suggest like you thought that it's a cooling problem. It may need the cooling fins cleaned out and silicone grease reapply'd to the processor and heatsinks.

Screen went black

When you close the lid, there is a small pin that engages the case and flips a switch to tell the laptop the case has been closed. The monitor will ALWAYS turn off then, because otherwise, the heat build up would burn the screen! Do not try to defeat this, replacing an LCD screen is usually more expensive than the value of the laptop!

Now, that all being said (and please remember), the situation you have now is (hopefully) just that the laptop tried/succeeded in going into ACPI "suspend" or "hibernate" mode.

1. Remove all cables and 10/100. Remove all USB devices. Just leave the PSU (AC power supply) connected.

2. Press the power button firmly, JUST once. Wait. And I mean WAIT, because some laptops can take 2 minutes or more to come out of suspend/hibernate, if they were very busy at the time it was shut down.

3. If the LCD screen lights up. you are done. But if it does not light up now, then proceed to step 4.

4. Press and HOLD the power button down for 10 seconds. This forces the laptop to shut down completely, even from suspend/hibernation. Some unsaved files may be lost, but tghe laptop goes cold, so you can start ACPI over again.

5. After a few minutes, press the power button again, firmly, just ONCE and for 1 second max. Laptop should start up OK.

6. Once it starts up, go to START MENU/SETTINGS/CONTROL PANEL/POWER SETTINGS and search for the "hibernation" tab. Turn hibernation OFF. your laptop obviously has some problems or lack of responsiveness with hibernation (most do). Use suspend, instead. It is much safer,. faster, and still does a good job of saving HDD and LCD wear. Please let me know how this goes for you, there are other more detailed problems that may be involved here, but I suspect this is most likely.
