Hi,

Look at it from the point of view of the manufacturer. Having made thousands if not hundreds of thousand from the same mold/die, it would be more economically reasonable for them to replace the entire board rather than repair. The problem to the consumer is soon as warranty is over, the problem drops to your lap. Your conclusion of a manufacturing defect indicates that you have made a research and therefore would also have known the exact section/component causing this. Additional corrective measure other than replacing the board would be to "beef" up/upgrade/enhance that section/component, but this of course would require extensive knowledge of the electronics involved. If it were heat related, improve/increase forced air ventilation, if it were BIOS related, upgrade/downgrade to a more stable version, if it were performance related, set settings to default or in general downgrade usage but upgrade specs. Say originally Vista, back down to XP, use a docking station with additional blowers, add think heatsink on chipsets, and a few other "make do".

Since you have not posted the exact model/version the above of course would be generic.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

The cheapest place you will find a mother board is on eBay. Search for a mother board for your machine by searching with the service tag number or P/N number on the white tag on the back. You may find that it is cheaper to buy a used laptop on eBay rather than a mother board.

My Laptop DV6000EU in Aug 2007. Warrenty on Mother board


it should be under waranty seeing that the motherboard is malfunctioning again. normally the hardware will go out before the motherboard and seeing that its the same problem again mark the motherboard in a nice little place with a marker to insure they are not doing a repair and giving you back the same faulty board.

My dv2000 boots but screen is split into like 8 parts (each part showing same thing) there are some wavy lines..sometimes its ok ...i try to load windows vista recovery (from partition) - it crashes on...


I have the same problem that my screen splits into 6 but occasionally screen comes normally. I gave to HP service center and they told me to change my mother board. I was worrying about the cost of Mother Board bcoz it costs 1/3 of my purchased rate and also my warranty was expired just 2 months before.

So, I tried some way to fix this temporarily, while screen comes normally, I went to Safe Mode, it works fine. So, I got an idea, it works in less hardware access, I think, how it works when removing NVIDIA display driver. So, I removed it. Now, it works fine but there is a difference in display but that doesnt matter while comparing previous.

I'm still searching permanent solution. I'm planning to change the Hardware of NVIDIA card. Lets see,

Bubulica2000,

There is two reasons to have no display on your screen.
1.LCD panel itself is deffective.
2.Main board(mother board is Deffective)

How to recoganize the problem?

There is 5VDC going from main board to LCD invertor ( different model different pin so I am not able to tell which pin or Jack is)
Check while unit is ON mode it should read in between 3VDC to 5 VDC.If this volt is correct your LCD panel is Deffective.If no voltage appear in this pin Simply change Main board(mother board)

Dont forget to rate!!

GoodLuck
