I have a HP DV2000 and recently it would not boot up. It gets to the windows screen and then rebots itself. Upon trying to reinstall the windows OS I got into the bios to see that the hard drive can't be detected.
problem can be my hard drive or my motherboard. The computer is out of warranty and my question is how can I be able to diagnose the what the exact problem is? Should I just buy a new hard drive and try that or is there anything I can do in the bios to further diagnose the problem??
Error message 1720-S.M.A.R.T Hard drive detects imminent failure Please backip the contents of the hard drive and run HDD self test in f10
Last week out of nowhere i noticed some banding on my display. It would be really bad all of a sudden for a few seconds and then disappear for a few mins. It had not been dropped or mishandled at all. 2 days later the display completely went black (but the backlight was still on). I have been doing research about what the problem is and have read alot about how HP had a bunch of notebooks with bad motherboards and GPU's that had to be replaced. My computer still works fine - just with no display. When hooked up to an external display it work no problem. And the original display will flash on occasionally as well.
My question is: Do I have the same problem as mentioned above with the bad motherboard?
Or is it just a display problem (that can hopefully be fixed with a quick display replacement?
I have an HP-dv2000 laptop hard-drive that's completely crashed now.
I have a Dell XPS laptop 320gig Sata Hard drive that I am trying to replace it with, however when I plug the hard drive in and try to turn on the power. All that happens is all the lights on the laptop just blink really fast, along with the multimedia quick buttons, continuously.
If I remove the hard-drive and it will actually go away and start, it will start up the HP screen thats it.
I recently changed my os to win7, but now some devices are not working(finger print scanner, webcam). i searched a lot for their drivers, but i'm tired.... i want quickplay driver also(hp pavillion dv2000)
i have a hp dv2000 series laptop a friend wanted me to look @ to see if I can fix it. He's willing to selling it to me real cheap ($50). The problem is as soon as you plug it in the laptop turns on. You see lights come on but monitor does not come on and you can see the fan turn on for a second then stops. This happens every time it turns on. He says it everything was turning on yesterday.
I've had my HP DV2000 for about a year. Recently I started having this problem. I would boot it up and the screen would be distorted like the image below. Sometimes it freezes and other times it just stays like that. I've ran MemTest to test the memory and that came out fine. I've also formatted it and started from scratch and it remains the same.
I have been given a laptop to fix.hp pavilion dv2000 when i turn it on the power comes on. But the screen remains black. I have no idea what the problem is as of yet.. Don't know if its screen issues or hardware issues i dont get any beeps or anything. I took out the ram used one stick no luck. So i open it up a bit the power strip bar with the LED the wire was cut. So that was getting no power. All wires for the screen/mirco webcam were plugged in. Not sure what the problem is I pluged in VGA monitor it doesnt turn on ? Any idea why i hit fn f4 nothing is happening? How do i get alt monitor show whats going on screen?...
Went to turn on the laptop and walked away. A minute or two later come back and laptop is not past the BIOS, and a screen talking about a laptop being ran until the battery drained last time it was on. I didn't get a chance to finish reading the screen because the laptop restarted. Nothing shows up on the screen after the restart. I was running off the AC adapter when this happened.
Situation now is pressing the power button causes the power button, media quick play bar. Power notification light , light above mouse pad and the wireless slider to light up. If the AC adapter is plugged in the charge light will light as well. I also hear a fan and i think the HDD. The HDD light doesn't light though. Nothing will show on the screen. stays black. I have tried powering it with AC adapter only, charged battery only, and with a charged battery and AC adapter.
The LCD on my DV2000 broke last month and since I dont have the money to replaced right away I decided to use it with my 17" lcd monitor for the mean time. After a few days of using it with the external monitor one day I turn it on and got nothing on my external monitor. Since then I having trying to figure out why I am not getting video signal through my VGA or s video.
Now I am afraid there is something worst than just the broken lcd so I am trying to see if there any way I can test it or find out if it still works before I get the replacement LCD. I at least know the there is signal going to the broken lcd since when it turns on the screens light up and turns white.
Is it possible to use a different size lcd from another hp? I have 15.4 lcd from my sister's old compaq will the dv2000 mother board run a bigger screen or will it kill the motherboard?
Like many others who use this series, I was faced with a dead HP laptop 3 weeks ago, giving nothing but a blank screen and 3 beeps (1 long, 2 short).
It turned out that almost all models under this series had this same problem due to the NVidia graphic card that overheated the mainboard So I sent mine in for repair at the HP service center and just got it back a few days ago.
I was just wondering if there is any way at all that I can prevent the new mainboard from overheating like this again? I would like to my notebook to live as long as possible from now on.
I checked the temperature just now and it was at 75C. It said the threshold was at 105C...
somehow the wifi switch on my hp dv2000 broke. i dont know how it happened, but it doesnt matter now as i cant use the internet because it is in off mode. i tried enabling it on device manager, but with no luck since i think its because it is still in the off position, and w/o the switch itself i cant manually switch back to the on posistion... anyone know how i can replace the switch? is it sold by hp, ebay, online retailer? is it an easy fix? and most importantly is it expensive? some crappy pics taken from my phone show the problem...
I bought a DV2000 with a failed motherboard. I tried reflowing it once and it didnt work. I will more than likely be replacing the mobo after I try reflowing once more.
It currently has a gforce 6150 igp with an athlon tk53. I am wanting to get a mobo with the best graphix solution possible. So far, the best I have found is a gforce 7150 board. I know there are intel setups with gforce 8200 but I would prefer to stick with amd, although an intel board is not completely out of the question.
So, if you know what the best graphix solution is, let me know! Post up the exact model number so that I can get a mobo part number. Or, just post what you got if its better than a 7150 gforce!
Alright Well I bought a new inverter plugged it in and it still is doing the same thing. Only when i jiggle the wires the light goes on and i see the screen but not for long. I check for loose conncections but can't find any. The external display is fine. I'm wondering if it could be the actual bulb.
i got a hp dv2000 and sometimes when i start it up and it gets to the user selection screen i cant find my cursor to select my user account. I keep moving my finger on the touch pad but cant find it. I have to hold the power button down it will shut off then i have to pull out the battery start it up and the cursor is now there this has happened like 5 times already what would cause this?
You can't Change your Graphics card, is there any graphics card that i can use through the PCI express slot, or the the expansion port? the laptop is hp pavillion dv2000 (exactly: dv2132ea) since i don't want to go through the hassle of changing my laptop. I just need a better vga card
