HP/Compaq :: Hp DV2000


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

HP/Compaq :: Wireless- DV2000
I have a DV2000 Laptop

- AMD Turion 64 X2 TL-50 Dual Core @ 1.6 Ghz
- Broadcom Wireless

I am having a problem with wireless network, the signal is very weak even the laptop is next to wireless router.

If I move my laptop 5 meter away from wireless router then my laptop could not detect any wireless network. I have updated wireless driver and update the bios.. no luck!

My Wireless card is: 414376-002 (Broadcom 802.11b/g Mini-PCI Express Card)

There is only one thin cable connected to wireless Mini-PCI Express Card.. is that normal?

HP/Compaq :: Dv2000 Display
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?

HP/Compaq :: Dv2000- Hard Drive
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.

Is the Hard-Drive dead?

HP/Compaq :: Helppavillion Dv2000 Laptop
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.

HP/Compaq :: DV2000 Booting//Display
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.

HP/Compaq :: How To Prevent DV2000 Mainboard From Burning
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...

HP/Compaq :: DV2000 Backlight, Inverter, Monitor
I've read the sticky and many threads here but I'm confused. What is the symptons of the backlight/inverter problems?

My DV2000, when power off the monitor is dark, when power on, the monitor lit/iluminated. But nothing on the screen. The harddrive led blinks so it's accessing.

I thought it was inverter so I replaced it with the $8+ from y'allstore. It didn't work.

HP/Compaq :: HP Pavilion Dv2000 Memory Upgrade
what type of memory is compatible with my girlfriend's hp dv2000 laptop?

All I know so far is this.

It comes with 2x1gb sticks of PC2 5300 200PIN DDR2 SODIMM

I am interested in getting 4gb for her. Would OCZ be ok?

I am looking at these right now -

[url]

They are OCZ PC2-5400 DDR2 SODIMM 200 pin

Would these be compatible with her laptop? Or can someone recommend something else???

The 5400 is just the max speed it runs at, so it would be ok if it wast the 5300 like the stock hp has?

HP/Compaq :: Dv2000- Wifi Switch Broken
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...

HP/Compaq :: Dv2000 Broken LCD And Now No Video Output
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?

HP/Compaq :: Pavilion DV2000. Won't Turn On
Laptop is a hp pavilion dv2000 laptop.

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.

HP/Compaq :: Best Graphix Solution Available In DV2000 Series Laptop With AMD
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!

HP/Compaq :: Looking For New OS
Ive just about had it with Vista on my laptop and want to try a new OS before I junk this thing. Is anyone running Win7 or Ubuntu on a HP DV5z AMD 64 bit laptop? The machine is about a year old and I have 4gb of RAM and the thing is a dog. Ive used Ubuntu in the past on Dell laptops and its a pain to get everything running wireless drivers, flash, etc. Win7 being a RC may or may not have everything up to speed on for my machine.

So, if you have Win7 or Ubuntu on a HP DV5z please give me a shout, good or bad.

HP/Compaq :: 16:9 Vs 16:10
I realize a lot of people are not happy losing the vertical space with 16:9.

But wasen;t this the case when we originally moved to widescreen. E.g. with 14" laptops the high-res displays used to SXGA+ which when they became WXGA+ we lost some vertical resolution.

Are there barebone laptops (with a good gfx card) that would be able to use the parts of my old laptop?

HP/Compaq :: HP NC6220
So I've just purchased this laptop for a descent deal as a secondary/field laptop. Looking to do some minor upgrades on it to give it a little more speed; RAM, CPU and hard drive.

It comes with the Mobile Intel 915GM Express Chipset and I'm curious to know if this model laptop is capable of the famous pin mod. If so, looks like I will be purchasing a cheap 1.6Ghz CPU for a pinmod.

Also does anyone know the largest, Hitachi 7200RPM PATA hard drive? Was it 100GB?

HP/Compaq :: Overheating HP
I have sent my laptop off 3 times to HP to have it repaired and its just came back and is running at 197.6 degrees when playing 720p videos. It got hot enough to char a piece of paper that was sitting next to it on my desk, almost starting a fire if I wasn't there.

The kicker is this laptop was given to me by hp a year and a half ago as a replacement for another overheating laptop. I am now told they don't replace laptops. So I cant call up my credit card company and say I received a lemon, or go back to the store and say you sold me a lemon, as it was given to me by HP.

The case managers have been EXTREMELY rude. Essentially calling me stupid and that im not qualified to diagnose the computer, even though Im a computer technician by trade and have been building computers since I was 9 years old.

IS my only options small claims court? is there anyway to get ahold of anyone higher than their case managers? they claim there isnt. Is there a way to get ahold of the board or ceo?

HP/Compaq :: Dv 6568SE
I have a Dv6568 for a little big over a year now. However, now I seem to be having a few problems with it. First the battery. After charging it too 100% the laptop only seems to last 20 minutes or so. The meter is is fine from around 100- 80 or so but after that it usually drops instantly to 6 and shuts off. I have tried calibrating it with the instructions from the hp site but no change. Another problem I'm having is with the heat. It seems to be really hot on the left palm rest area. It has the 8400M GS so I have a feeling it might be this. However HP didn't list the dv65XX models as ones with defective GPU's.

low lighting conditions or bad drivers cause this did not happen until i reformatted the thing. I really don't want to go back to VISTA

HP/Compaq :: How To OC This CPU
Does anyone have a good way to OC this laptop other than using ClockGen? I am basically wondering if there is a BIOS option. I know there are some OC guides out there, but this laptop is almost 3 years old, and as far as I can tell does not have an option in the BIOS. Also, my proc is the T2600, not the one is this review, but other than that exactly the same. I am looking to play around with this because it is old and I dont care too much if I fry it since my new hotness is on the way.
