Hi,

If all else fails, pls try:

  • Clean the memory slots with a clean brush. It may help to use electronic contact cleaner (pls spray cautiously);
  • clean the memory pins with a pencil eraser;
  • verify that all other plug in components are seated correctly;
  • leave the laptop without the memory and the battery for some time.
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.

Hello,

Here is a link from Crucial that guarantees compatibility with your system.

http://www.crucial.com/store/listparts.aspx?model=Pavilion%20dv6000t%20Series

If the system doesn't boot, I suggest that you remove the new ram and temporarily reinstall the original memory. You will need to make sure that both retainer clips pop in place when you reinstall it You may also need to co into bios and reset system defaults to make sure that the memory is read correctly.

Hope this helps. Please remember to rate this information.

Thanks

Move both tabs away from the memory. carefully line it up in the slot and push down gently. if the memory is installed in the slots correctly both tabs will move up to hold the memory in place. reboot.... if that does not work install the memory in the other slot.

This can be a problem with the new memory, it may be not compatible with your MOBO or the memory is bad. So just remove the memory and try to reboot that should be working fine...

Hope that helps........

Hi, I have upgraded my HP Pavilion DV1000 RAM to 2G PC2700 DDR 333MHz, but after turning on it just makes 4 short beeps and screen is not turned on, please help me fix this error.


4 Short beeps would indicate during POST (Power on Self Test) there is a initialization issue with added hardware. The DIMM you added may not be compatible, or installed in the correct order.
1. Remove new memory completely, and see if machine starts
2. If you have original memory module still installed, remove it and try new one by itself.
3. If that works, put newer larger module in the 1st slot, and move original in second slot, and try again.

The system can automatically adjust memory settings (speed and timing) itself from the SPD module on every stick of RAM. However if the settings are drastically different, it can cause problems. Generally it will run as fast as the slowest module, but now always, sometimes causing the slower module to be attempted to run out of spec and cause boot issues or system instability.

Good luck!

I down grade from vista to windows xp, after that my audio is not working. when i am trying to install audio drivers MSUAA and conexant driver then it showing failure message "could not find the MEDIA...


From HP's site:

Use the drivers from dv6000t cto series.Install Intel Chipset Installation Utility for ICH7(near bottom of list) first and reboot before installing other drivers.
For audio,install MS UAA,reboot,then Conexant drivers.All others can be in any order.You have Intel Pro Wireless and Network.
QP can't be reinstalled,at least not from HP.You can install the HP Quick Launch software and program your buttons to work with any media player installed.

Hp pavilion dv6000 turns onn and off


I had a similar problem with my pavilion. They have a cooling fan design that allows for lint buildup and subsequent overheating. You could try using a compressed air and blowing out the exhaust vent area for the fans.
