You need to buy a part from HP aparently you can only buy it with a hard drive attached from hp (ripping u off) i suggest tracking down someone thats stipping one and offering them some $$ for just the connector, you can pull the connector of the one currently in the machine and swap it over, i had the same trouble when i tried installing a second hard-drive.

You can always return the harddrive and get the proper IDE hard-drive. You will also need a cradle to hold the hard-drive in the bay if you are trying to add addition hard-drive. Otherwise reuse the old cradle.

You can buy the connector of the sata which is the half for the hdd connector. You can use it for sata to hdd or to hdd to sata.

This is clear that your laptop doesnt support SATA and will support only to the previously used type of HDD..

Thankyou

Can this HP Pavilion DV9000 laptop adapter fit for Compaq Presario V3000 laptop? I doult that HP Pavilion DV9000 laptop adapter on website:http://www.laptopbatteryshop.ca/hp-pavilion-dv9000-ac-adapter.htm...


Have a look at the label on the bottom of the V3000 laptop and check the voltage and amps power rating of the laptop.
If the DV9000 adapter has the same voltage and current rating (amps) or higher amp rating then it is suitable for the V3000 laptop, provided the power plug fits the V3000 power socket.

Hp pavillon dv9000 error beeps


Now video? All the lights are on? Tree beep codes? A long one followed by two shorte once? Found solution, at least with my two HP dv9000 series laptops. The video chip on the bottom side of motherboard needs to be re-flowed. The best way to check it is to apply decent pressure on the left side of keyboard until you feel that you’ve pressed the motherboard against the bottom side of laptop. Good for couple start ups unless you hit it hard J. If it works, find a manual on HP site how to take your laptop apart and use this video how to re-flow motherboard.

My HP Pavillion DV9000 Laptop wont detect the hard drive


When I tried first installing windows XP on my laptop, I had the problem that I already had Windows Vista on it, but wanted to delete it and install Windows XP. Whenever I tried installing XP, it kept telling me that there was no hard drive. I searched through all the forums on this topic and finally found out that I had to change a setting in the BIOS called native SATA driver support.

My assumption is that once they changed the mainboard on your PC, the bios settings changed as well. Try searching through your BIOS, it might have a similar setting that you might need to change.

Hard drive upgrade


It has to have SATA Hard Drive Connector DFHS22FR685, if you have this then I would try to format the hard drive to what your operating system is using, either NFTS or FAT32. The drive may not be properly formated for your system.

Trouble adding 2nd hard drive to hp dv9000 laptop


Summary after reading several threads on that and fixing this problem on my DV9010 + ST9500325AS:

The problem is known - modern drives featuring SATA II interface
(3 Gb/s) wont allow DV9000 to boot if the first drive is older SATA 1 (1.5 Gb/s). Though the machine does boot if the new drive is installed in the first bay.
The solution is to force the new drive to run only in 1.5 Gb/s mode
that is typically done with a jumper on the back side of the drive.
For Seagate Mementus drives the jumper location is shown here
