Dv1000 bootup problems

My laptop will not boot up at all now. At first it would boot in 1 - 3 attempts, then it became about 8. Now, I try to no avail. I did the following, reseat memory, reseat harddrive. It then booted multiple times, then I tried it the next day, and it would not boot. Power is ok with and without it plugged in. Power light comes on, disk light comes on for a second, then off, then sits with black screen with power light on. No boot. After I get it back on,(after reseating memory and drive), I will run chkdsk. I will also try another drive. Someone indicated it was the post on bootup, so I reformatted the drive, and reloaded the software. So I still am not able to boot. Motherboard issues??? Don't want to take it anywhere to have it looked at, but might not have a choice. Suggestions????

    just to clarify, when you turn it on do you get any start up screens at all including the initial bios screen telling you which key to hit to enter setup?

Excessively re-booting and getting worse tells me you got registry issues.and most likely a bad MBR.....you'll need to fix one thing at a time. ask your buddies if they have a generice rescue disc....usually system mechanic or one of the other fixit utilities have a built in boot disc/rescue disc.....try booting from the disc.If you have no buddies with a disc like that....try download dot com for MBRfix...obviously use a working computer....or go to library if that's the only one you got , take your flash drive with you...and while you're at download dot com, check out registry cleaners [ free ones only ].....so, get the MBR checked out and fixed, then install a registry cleaner like auslogics [ works very well ]and if you get that far, post back your results.....and we can go from there. ok?

For boot up up issue there are certain ways for you to check if it is hardware or software related.

Check if you can hear any noticable noise like whe it is booting up properly
If there is
Connect an external monitor to the laptop and check if there will be any display for the computer.

If there is no display and no noise for the laptop it means that it is HW issue and the systemboard of the computer is busted and needed for replacement

No bootable device, hit any key


The bios cannot find any device it can boot from. This can occur because of hard disk failure, a loose connection or file corruption. There usually is a boot menu that you can get to from the bios by hitting some key specified by your bios manufacturer during the POST bootup process. Usually there is some message on screen like 'press esc for bootup options' or 'press f2 to enter bios setup' or something similar. As your machine starts up, try hitting ESC, F2, F5, F8 or F12 -one at a time-hitting each key several times during bootup (maybe your manual can give you a hint). If you get into the BIOS setup screen, look at the screen that tells you what the BIOS thinks you have attached for storage. If you don't see a hard disk there, you have a definite hardware problem. If you get into a boot option screen, try putting a Windows Installation CD, or a recovery CD from your laptop manufacturer, in the CD-ROM drive of your computer and enabling the machine to boot from the CD-ROM. If the PC boots from the CD-ROM, you may be able to use Windows Recovery mode or your manufacturer's recovery disk to get your hard drive working again. If you have any files you can't live without on your hard drive, look into getting your hard drive out of your laptop and into a USB drive enclosure that you can use another PC to try and read those files from the hard drive prior to attempting any recovery options, as some of them erase all files on your hard drive. Also check to see if your PC has manufacturer diagnostics that you can boot into to check your hardware with before attempting any other type of repairs.

HP Pavilion dv1000 PC Notebook My PC shuts down automatically


This is a common problem for many laptops.Its shutdown because of over heating.msoufeer5_2.jpg
Each mobile processoe has a max temperature rating. when the temperature reches certain degree
the processor shuts itself down to prevent damaging the chip.The number 1 cause of heat related issue is dust bunnies.

Dust is a pretty good insulator and it will block your laptop's airflow when it build up over time.The easiest way clean it is to use a can of compressed air and it through the air flow event.

If you are handy you can also take out the key board and clean the inside. you can see the cooling
fan on most laptop once you removed the key board.In some case even the out side look clean but
if you take apart the fan assembly you will see tha ther's still dust collecting inside

Clean dust and try again

I can't seem to get my HP DV1000 laptop to boot from USB I go into the bios and it shows it as a hard-drive but it won't boot from it. I've made a Flash drive with bootable Ubuntu 10


Start up the computer and hit F10 a few times during start-up and login to the BIOS and check that the USB drive precedes the hard disk and CD/DVD drives in the boot order. Use the + and - keys to move the boot devices up or down within the boot order. After you have completed this, hit the ESC key and then choose Select Save Changes and Exit. The computer will now attempt to boot from the devices in the order you have specified.

Would you kindly rate my answer please if this has helped resolve the problem - thanks :)

Hoow do you open gateway MX6440. No audio. Bootup


Typically, a computer tries to "boot" from several devices:
1. 3.5-inch diskette
2. internal CD-ROM
3. internal disk-drive
4. USB memory-stick
5. network (if a "boot-server" can be found on the network)
6. external diskette
7. external CD-ROM
8. external disk-drive

So, in your case, either

* the "boot-order" _EXCLUDES_ your disk-drive,
* your disk-drive is not connected,
* your disk-drive is connected, but is "dead" (not responding)

Not being able to boot from the disk-drive, your computer probes, via the network, for a "boot-server". Finding none, your computer reports, in a strange way, that "network cable is not connected to a boot-server".

So, the "check cable" means that the Ethernet cable between the network-port on your computer and the boot-server may be "unconnected".

What this could mean is that your disk-drive is "dead".
Take the computer to a qualified technician, for more trouble-shooting.

Getting out of the initial set up


First try to Boot to Last Known Good Configuration.. do this by pressing F8 upon bootup...look at the prompt screen for the option mentioned OR
