Question about Dell Latitude D600 Notebook
Black screen with all lights on
after the power is on the operating system didn''t load. It is only black screen.
I called hp today, for the black screen at bootup. He worked me through it perfectly. Seems when the machine sits idle too long the power starts to efecct the mother board. The solution was to remove powercord and battery, press the startup button for 30 seconds then plug back power cord and press power start button again... Then reinstall battery and start with it in again... Worked fin after that I guess hp is aware of this issue.......

It is possible that is a virus, especially as you did nothing that could have damaged the hardware. However - one other thing that may be causing this is a failed power supply. It may be that the computer is no longer getting enough power to run the graphics card properly. You could try removing any PCI cards and extra fans (appart from the CPU fan obviously) to see if that allows the PSU to provide more power to the graphics card. But there's no guarantees...how old is the PSU and is it branded?
Also, did you download anything whilst on the internet before hand? Or click yes to any of those warning prompts?
Id say the chances of it being a BIOS destryoing virus arnt too high, unless you already have suspicions about this.
Have you moved the machine at all ?
Check for loose IDE cables and that the memory is in correctly. Infact, have you messed around inside the machine before it stopped working ?
If not, and somthing hasnt come loose, it'll probably be hardware failure of some kind. Memory iscommon one, and check the PSU (Hope its a good make / branded one).

This isn't exactly a "solution" so much as an "end of the road". I have a DV2000t which has a broken lid switch, only powers on after battery and power are unplugged (but new BIOS did not fix), only turns on fan briefly during boot then never again (but new BIOS did not fix), has gone through a couple inverters, no longer powers on from power button (due to poor soldering), has non-functional wireless (no network), powers up and down in three seconds if CMOS isn't cleared, and has had the related orange touchpad light. In short, it has had EVERY problem that the recalled DV2000 series laptops have had, and yet the model is not on the recall list. I also called HP and confirmed that, because the warranty period is over, I have no option but to pay a lot for replacement parts from HP.
So the "solution" is to part it out on eBay and happily go without a laptop. Buying a replacement motherboard for this laptop isn't much of a solution, because it's still the same junk hardware, but if anything else goes wrong, there's no coverage.

Follow the below link. HP is fixing the problem for free. They did not ask me when I purchased the computer so warranty is not an issue. HP is sending out a pre-paid box to ship the computer back to be fixed
This will only work if your computer is on the list for recall at:
If it is on the list call this to contact HP in North America call 1-866-671-7362 from 6:00 am to 11:00 pm MST, 7 days a week.
It worked for me!

Try with Recovery Console:
To boot from the Windows XP CD, insert it into the CD-ROMdrive on the problem system and press [Ctrl][Alt][Delete] to reboot thecomputer. Once the system begins booting from the CD, simply follow the promptsthat will allow the loading of the basic files needed to run Setup. When yousee the Welcome To Setup screen, press R to start the Recovery Console.
You'll then see a Recovery Console menu. It displays the foldercontaining the operating system's files and prompts you to choose the operatingsystem you want to log on to. Just press the menu number on the keyboard, andyou'll be prompted to enter the Administrator's password. You'll then findyourself at the main Recovery Console prompt.
After restarting windows use a system utility software like RegInOut.

I have a dv2418nr with the stated problems above. No video just blue lights. Tryed everything: held down scroll and insert while turning it back on, then turned it back on and it came up. This only worked once. Lost video again. Tried removing the battery and power, and held down the power button for 30 secs. Did not work. Now trying what solution 11 suggested. I did call HP knowing that the laptop was not on their recall list. Heard they might offer to replace or fix for free. Instead they said they would fix it for $300.00. For a hundred or so more I can buy a new, other than HP, laptop.
I hope others have better luck than I.

Using this site and calling about the same issue with no screen output, fan spins for 1 second and blue lights on, they sent me a next day return box and they are replacing my laptop!
Thanks for your help and I recommend calling them if your laptop is on the list!!

Accidently stumbled into this forum, does the Laptop produce 1 Long and 2 Short Beep ?
If yes, try pressing F8 upon Power On and select Normal Startup
Better than nothing !!! ;-)

Check this site:
It looks that HP is aware of the problem and offers free repair service for the US/Canada customers so If you are lucky enough and live in North America enjoy the free service
Take care and hope its usuful info for some of you guys

I suggest that everyone demand hp to either fix the laptop for free, or send a new one.

Same problem as the rest of you.
I've also had a lot of issues with the wireless on mine.
It also gets hot enough to burn me after just a few minutes of being on.
I'm NEVER going to buy buy an HP product again. I hope they all die for cheating consumers out of so much money.
One time I called Customer Support. Horrible experience. I got directed to a call center in India, where the operator only spoke very broken english. He was more worried about selling me some extended protection than he was about fixing my problem.

Hp pavilion dv2000. same problem: blank screen, blue indicator lights on...wtf is up with this. any luck with hp customer service? im also out of warranty!

It could be that there is a static build up and that you need to get rid of this.
Remove the battery and the power cable and hold down the power button for around 30 seconds.
This should fix the problem...if it is the same as mine!

If your computer is running kind of sluggish, you can fix it with an easy clean up of your registry. Here's a link to a free scan that works well:
I've used this one and it sped up my computer by quite a bit. Hopefully this helps.
