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.

Dell :: Spilled Water On My E1705- Keyboard

Sep 14, 2007

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?

Dell :: Spilled Drink On Latitude D630 Keyboard

Nov 16, 2009

I couldn't remove the keyboard so I turned it upside down and put aside. So from my search in Google I found that I must leave it like that about few days untill everything is completely dry.

I also panicked a bit and it took me about a minute to remove the charger and about few minutes to remove the battery.

My questions are:

1.The laptop turned off - does it mean that it was short circuit or it could be some defence mechanism .....

HP/Compaq :: Spilled Iced Tea In 8510p

Jun 9, 2009

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.

HP/Compaq :: Super Small Resolution (Pavilion Ze4420us)

May 22, 2009

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.

Oct 31, 2009

It was placed vertically in a bag and my grandma spilled water from a flower vase on my laptop. Good thing it wasn't turned on but The ports were wet and I wiped them with tissue.

I placed the laptop upside down in front of a fan to hopefully let all the water inside evaporate. I also dismantled the battery.

HP/Compaq :: HP DV6000

Apr 14, 2010

Have a dv6000 with turion 64 X2 tl56 and 2 gigs ram. Running the latest F42 BIOS. Is this thing compatable with Win7 x64? It should be, anyone tried?

Lastly, is it confirmed that 2MB sodimms will NOT work on this thing? I'd like to upgrade, currently have 2x 1 GB sodimms, would like to try 2 GB sodimms if it would recognize them.

HP/Compaq :: DV6000 Won't Power On

May 4, 2009

I had a friend bring me her HP DV6000 telling me it won't boot.

When the power switch is pressed, all the lights come on for about 4 seconds, then go off. The screen never initializes.

I have noticed that touching the pad near the on switch/speakers will have the same effect.

I popped the switch panel and it looks to be plugged in and all the wiring intact.

I borrowed a known good battery and charger and it makes no difference.

The existing battery and charger work fine in the other DV6000.

Is it possible I need a new switch or cable? or is the mainboard toast?

Sep 12, 2009

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.

HP/Compaq :: Dv6000....DEAD

Nov 12, 2009

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.

HP/Compaq :: HP Dv6000 Broken Wifi

Sep 24, 2009

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.

HP/Compaq :: Dv6000 Speakers Not Working

Apr 17, 2009

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!

HP/Compaq :: Upgrading Dv6000 Screen

Mar 1, 2009

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

HP/Compaq :: Dv6000 Dead Wireless

Apr 10, 2009

So my dv6000 has finally suffered the death of the wireless adapter. I suppose the motherboard is next to go. It is beyond even the extended warranty for this problem by a couple of months.

Should I try to get HP to fix it under the extended warranty, or should I just forget it?

In either case I'll never buy another HP computer again.

HP/Compaq :: Dv6000 Fried Motherboard

Oct 24, 2009

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?
