HP Pavillion Laptop

Have had laptop for over a year, no troubles. only thing different recently is I added a Lexmark 1200 series printer/copier a month or so ago.

starting last week, windows will not boot up, I get error message and selecting "last good" config does not work nor do the other option on the screen. This laptop came from best buy with windows in it & I am not sure I even have a windows disc to re boot. What do I do?

    It did not start, but you did steer me up into the function keys where I was able to do a system recovery. Not the optimum solution as much gets wiped out but at least I can add it all back. This is better than carting it off to someone else to fix!



    Thanks so much for getting me on the right path!

HP Pavillion 6000 battery issues


Hi Steve, If you haven't gotten any batteries to work properly at all and the problems are different each time, I would say the motherboard is shorting out the batteries and causing weird problems. One last thing to try if possible..

Try a known good working battery, if that battery doesn't work then its verified that the motherboard is bad. If the known good working battery works in that laptop then you got a bad batch and it will be a battery problem.

Since your laptop turns on with the ac adaptor means that the ac adaptor is good.

HP Pavillion DV6701 SERIES LAPTOP


Usually it's a problem with the motherboard with majority of the HP DV series laptops. They just released an extended warranty that covers many of their models. You can check your warranty here:

If you'd like to try something yourself, I would recommend reseating the memory and booting your laptop without the main battery installed.

Best of Luck!

Laptop screen went out/bad


Hi falcon30, first thing I would suggest you do is plug the laptop into an external monitor to check that the graphics card/the laptop itself is functioning ok. All your need is a standard PC monitor with a VGA cable, plug the VGA cable into the blue port labeled 19 on the picture below. Turn on the laptop and if nothing appears on the screen, hold down the 'Fn' key and press f5. If nothing still shows than this suggests a different problem. If it shows ok on the screen however, and boots fine then it would suggest that something has failed screen-wise. This could possibly be fixed yourself if you feel confident enough, but without having access to the laptop I am unable to tell you which part of the screen has failed, so the whole screen part of your laptop would need to be replaced, spares for this sort of thing can be found on ebay, and disassembly instructions can be found at this link: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/manualCategory?product=299255&cc=us&lc=en&dlc=en&product=299255&dlc=en&lang=en , you need to download the PC service manual. Otherwise you can continue to use the laptop with a normal PC monitor. If you need any more help just let me know, good luck and all the best. Si :)

Hp Pavillion zx5369 Notebook


Only mobo's available for it are that series and no other. It is a service/sales issue to get you to buy a new laptop. The other units in the series probably differ in onboard video and processor capability. The case in only built to accomadate theat board and display.
