Question about HP PC Desktops

1 Answer

My brother in law asked me to help with his hp dv6000. I have a system mechanic I was going to try on it. The problem is that the computer will not turn on. You can push the power button and all of the lights come on on the keyboard for a couple seconds and then it shuts off. It will not boot up at all. The system mechanic won't run because the computer doesn't stay on long enough. Help!!!

Assuming it's a desktop pc not a laptop the power supply might be faulty. Try and replace it. If the computer has being recently moved, you will need to open it up and see if all connections are on. Also if that doesn't work, try and disconnect all the cables to your cd roms and hard drives and see if that works. More than likely the power is shot and you will need to replace, should cost between $30-$80 to replace. Make sure you look for a 500watt power supply as they work better if running multiply drives.

Her machine may have a hidden partition on the hard drive that will restore the system to factory condition, without wiping out her data. Read the following carefully (PDF document).

Starts on page 16 of the PDF.

Look at "Standard Recovery" and "Recovery Image" (page 17)

Page 20 has "Starting PC Recovery if the PC is not responding".

Does a HP Pavillion T3000 need a fuse? Power cut


Hi,

It can be the problem voltage variation. The mother board might have some problem. Please check the motherboard for any burnt parts. If there are changing is the only option.

I want to talk to my brother inlaw in USA using new hp LAP TOP COMPUTER WEB CAM.I am new to computer.


In addition to an internet connection (Broadband preferably) you would also need one of those instant messaging programs. There are lots of choices, like Yahoo! IM, MSN Messenger, or SKYPE. All are down loadable free of charge in their web site. I suggest asking your brother in law what IM software he is using, just to make setup a lot easier.

I am trying to copy on folders onto a new hp computer (Pavillon dv6000) and it says it is incompatible and to check with you.


it may be that the two systems have different bit rate o/s
one 32 bit operating system,and the other has 64 bit operating system, or you are using different operating systems ie MAC and PC tthat's the only reason i can think of,unless they have been corrupted when you copied them over.

good luck and please rate my efforts

No sound in speakers


Sometimes the speaker internally disables itself when another audio device is connected (i.e. headphones or external speakers) and need to be reenabled from Control Panel. Try this.
