HP/Compaq :: DV6000- Spilled Only A Small Amount Of Tea On The Keyboard
Jul 23, 2009
My son spilled only a small amount of tea on the keyboard. knowing what could come out of it, I turned it off right away. After cleaning and drying for a few hours, i turned it on, and managed to a couple of times. The next day I tried to turn it on again, and as it was displaying Bios info, I saw one of the flat cables under the keyboard melt slightly. I turned it of right away. This cable is one of the two coming out of the panel over the keyboard, to be exact the left one, from the on/off button to the motherboard.
Bought the cable online, and still does not work. I CAN hear the computer turn on, the lights are all as usual, and boot and even go into windows, but I cant see anything on the screen. I have seen a really really dark and dim shadow of the boot, even the windows logo, but its almost invisible.
I have an HP DV9700 notbook and water got spilled on the keyboard. I turned the notebook off immediately and unplugged it. Then let it dry for a day. The next day I turned it on and now when I press some keys the wrong thing happens such as when I press backspace Internet Explorer will switch to full screen or when I press the spacebar it will do a space and put a period in the spelling.
I accidentally spilled some water on my laptop this evening. i dried everything out and everything seems to be working fine..except for that my left "Ctrl" key is acting really weird. Something is making it seem like it's being constantly held down (although it physically isn't). The only way I can disable this is through the On-Screen Keyboard in Windows XP. But after hitting the particular Ctrl key, it goes back to being held down again. Is there anything I can do to fix this? Or is this something that wouldn't cost too much to repair?
My sister is 14 and she spilled a full glass of water on her Macbook keyboard. It shut off automatically. I took out the battery and turned the laptop upside down. I tried to aim a hair dryer at the vents, and now it is just sitting still drying out. It is showing no sign of life.
I have accidentally spill water on my dell 1525 keyboard and now, when I power on, the keyboard does not work. everything works fine, its just none of the keys on my keyboard or maybe one or two from time to time work.
My wife spilled Mt Dew on here laptop (hp dv4t), all over the keyboard, I quickly grabbed it, and help the power button to shut it down, turned it upside down and let the pop drain out, let it sit for a few days, and now it works fine... Except... Half the keyboard is now sticking, Im wondering if the whole keyboard will pop off in one piece, or if the indivizual keys pop off easily enough.
I have just received the HP dv3z. I have run some tests and I have a couple remarks to make. I also took some pics with a bad quality web-cam. Also, I'm a new to the forums, sorry if this is the wrong place.

around a month ago i spilled some iced tea in my laptop. first i thought it was gone, but then i dried it out and it mostly works. i turned it on within the 24 hour period, but it mostly works.
it boots up and i can install the OS. problem is that whenever i move the touchpad it's like the left mouse button is always clicked and it's a constant select on everything i scroll over. i tried replacing the touchpad and using only a USB mouse but it doesn't work.
new touchpad does the same thing and USB mouse won't work in the OS. it will work during installing the OS, but once in the OS it stops working.
A friend of mine has an HP Pavilion ze4420us laptop and seems to have a problem. When his computer starts up the screen is reduced in size so that all you can see is a 6"x6" area that's using the screen. Everything is displayed normally inside this "box". Once windows loads it's fine though.
some manufactures have a "Fn+key" or "shift+key" type of shortcut that will change an internal setting and enlarge or reduce the picture being displayed.
i was using my hp dv6000 laptop and tried to open a video file my system got rebooted instantly and after that I saw a crashed boot screen (HP logo was all distorted, vertical lines on that). Any way i went to the safe mode and uninstall the nvidia drivers, now its working fine with default windows vista home vga driver but the boot screen is still distorted. When i update the nvidia drivers the laptop refuses to go inside the windows.
Have to go to safe mode uninstall the driver and it starts working on default vga drivers.
A friend of my g/f gave me her computer to fix. She said she took it to Best Buy and they said her HD is messed up. Now, if I order a new drive and the restore disks from HP, will that fix this issue? She is not worred about losing any data. Is my thinking correct? Install new HD, put in restore disks, start it up and follow the directions.
I bought an HP Pavilion dv6000 with a problem on the screen, I have less than half the screen at the bottom with a dark line where sometimes changes color or simply it removes and looks normal I have no problem with the rest of screen,
hp pavilion dv600. when u press the power button it will sometimes restart three times before displaying the hp start up logo and sometime it starts fine it does the same thing even if the hdd is out or cd drive is out or if the battery is out or if the RAM is out?
my mom has a HP Pavillion dv6000 made for being mobile and having some gaming capability anyway she's had it for year and half well long story short its alwas been kinda slow and I ran some tests on it because I'm thinking about buying it from her and the processor AMD Turion 64 X2 TL-58 @ 1.90GHz is like locked at 803.9MHz won't go past it I ran OCCT for an hour and it never went over 803.9MHz and never went under 803.7Mhz any idea what the problem could be?. I know she didn't do anything to it, all she does is go on Facebook.com and play FarmTown >_>
My mom's HP dv6000 will not connect to any wireless networks. I thought the network adapter might be fried but last night for no reason after weeks or months of not working the light for the wireless switch was on and turned blue. Wifi card worked flawlessly until I left it off the charger for a few hours and it turned off. Upon rebooting its again broken. The wireless switch indicator led stays red in both the on and off poisition.
The speakers on my laptop are not working. The weird thing is the sound works when I plug in my headphones in either headphone jack (so that's good news, I suppose). But when I unplug the headphones, no sound.
Here's the thing; you know those media buttons that make that little beep whenever you touch any of them? Well, they work fine (volume up and down, mute, DVD and QuickPlay), but no beep sound from them either!
My 2 years old dv6000 display yesterday started to show a thin yellow vertical line about 2 inch from the right of the screen which run from top to bottom, and after a bit of googling, I found out it's unrepairable and I need to replace the screen
Anyway, after reading some of the threads on this forum, it seems to me that it's possible to replace the screen with a higher resolution one, albeit on dv9XXX ones. Has anyone done this upgrade on dv6XXX? And what screen (spare parts no/maker) did you get? Was there any 'misfit' with the hinge/panel/connector/inverter?
Vidcard=NVIDIA Go 7400 Screen =15.4" WXGA HighGloss BrightView Screen max resolution=1280X800
Is there any free software out there that is better than Quickplay that comes on the notebook? The webcam works okay, but my wife just got a newer version of HP and her Cyberlink Youcam is nice, but not worth 30 bucks. Currently has Vista 32 bit.
my dv6000 has a common problem, it just wont turn on anymore, it's starts up and shuts down with in 5 seconds and repeats until i turn it off - i'm gonna either strip it for parts or sell it as seen for spares/repair.
Two questions if you'll indulge me - is this the motherboard that's gone? Most pages online suggest this and getting a new motherboard is expensive and likely to go again i think. Secondly do you guys know where the bext place for new to try and sell it for spares is and what could i possibly expect from it with a bad mb?
