Question about HP Pavilion dv9000z Notebook

HP dv9000 turns on when it feels like it

Same problem that I've just read about from so many others. Had a feeling that I wasn't alone and that it was an HP design flaw. Have tried all the HP recommended fixes too, updating the BIOS, reseating the memory, removing the static and the non-HP recommended closing the lid (sometimes that works after you press the on button), removing the battery, etc. Mine's out of warranty and wasn't on the list for the free extended warranty. Have two other Toshiba laptops so I can live without the HP which we only used for backup. Sure not going to pay HP $325 to fix it. With prices on laptops dropping, cheaper to buy a new one from Costco and they throw in a second year of warranty for free.

My HP DV9000 will not boot, although it has power and the power button is lighted. It stopped working suddenly.Several months before this the WiFi quit, although the Bluetooth still worked.

Sounds like you may have a motherboard issue or a memory issue. If you feel comfortable doing it, remove the memory from the bottom of the case (you will see the memory compartment door has a little memory logo on it). Remove the memory and replace them one at a time, alternating to see if there is improved performance. If you do not feel comfortable doing this you should consult your local IT professional.

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.

There is no display on my HP Pav dv9000

Is there any display during start up? If so, then the possible solution is that the display has been toggled for TV or external monitor display. Try hitting Function F5 on the keyboard (default display toggle function) and see if that turns on your LCD display.
