HP/Compaq :: OlderPavillion Dv6000- On Temps

Sep 19, 2009

The dv6000 I own had some known heating issues. I am already on the 2nd hard drive as I think the last one simply got fried. The laptop in general performs well. I am close to buying a new Sager gaming laptop but am thinking of holding off till early 2010. I'm a little worried about another overheating issue. Aside from work, every Sunday I stream NFL football at 720p. I live in Peru and only come to the US a couple times per year. I either need to buy a new laptop in the next month or likely hold off till April or so.

What are your thoughts on my hardware temps? When I took this screen capture I had a couple java application open (my typical work environment) and was streaming 720p flash based video for over an hour. Are these temps OK?

I should point out I now use a fan cooling pad since I replaced the hard drive. I also have some drivers from HP that supposedly addressed some of the heating issues.

HP/Compaq :: SEVERE Temps With Dv6000 And GeForce 6150

Jun 21, 2009

I was given a dv6113us 2 weeks ago for free since it didn't work. It had the typical no video boot problem. I paid someone on ebay to fix the laptop for me for 80 bucks . Hp said I was out of warranty so they couldn't help me. The guy on eBay told me that he would basically reball and resolder my geforce 6150 chip on there. I sent it in last week, and I just got it back in the mail yesterday and all is working great except for some random freezing at times. The laptop will freeze for a minute every couple of minutes. The hard drive just stops reading out of nowhere, then starts again. Its a brand new hard drive. I was thinking this had to do with heat somewhere in the system.

I downloaded Core Temp and found that the CPU was running pretty cool on both cores.
Around 40c with medium load. Then I downloaded GPU-Z and saw these insane temps! I couldn't believe my eyes! My GPU temps hover around from 97 degrees celsius to 109 degrees celsius.

Before I sent in the laptop I tried taking it apart and was stuck at the top cover. Something was holding it together by the track pad. I almost ripped the cover off but decided to give up and put it back together. Now that I found the post from MrFoo, NOW I know what was holding me back!

My friends HP just died today. It seems like the GF8400GS went busted. She's out of warranty so we need to find a solution. It seems like HP put their proprietary design GFX card inside their laptops.

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?

HP/Compaq :: Hp Dv6000 Bootscreen

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 :: HP DV6000 1.3M Webcam Software

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.

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?

HP/Compaq :: Hp Dv6000 And Corrupt Hal.dll File

Apr 1, 2009

I am having a few problems here with a dv6000. Firstly I need to point out that the power button on the machine is broken so the only way to start it is by using the quick launch keys and booting into Windows that way.

Ok, so I have been doing some routine work on my brothers machine, however, It was getting quite low on disk space on the C partition. When I originally set up his machine I created a C: and D: partition for his documents.

No problem, I thought and went into Partition Magic with the intention of removing a gig or two from D and relocating to the C partition. Of course though ,it failed and now I have about 2 gig of unpartition space.

Windows now tells me the Hal.dill is missing or corrupt. The funny thing though is that it still boots, it hangs for a few minutes on the error the restarts and boots fine and it only displays the message on a fresh boot, not on a restart.

I ran a chkdsk /p last night, but stupidly didn't run a chkdsk /r so that will be my first task tonight.

From what I have read its quite simple to re copy the hal.dill file but I am worried this may affect using Quick Launch the boot the machine.

HP/Compaq :: HP Pavillion DV6000 Sound

Feb 13, 2010

No hardware problems showing in Device Manager
Windows 7 Home Premium
1gig Ram

Problem > No Sound (sorta)

There is no sound ONLY from the Bottons Above the keyboard Which Beep, IF and only IF you close the lid and wait for the computer to go into sleep mode, WHEN you re-open the lid, There is sound for about 2sec, Until the computer shows the USER LOGIN (Square picture you click to log in)

If you plug head phones into the computer there is ONLY sound on one side (i think right side) I thought maybe it was a faulty JACK so i Removed the entire board from the front of the computer(unpluged from mother board)

I had windows Vista on this computer and it was the same!

I dont believe this is a driver problem but could be... Everything is un-muted and working. like i said. i GET sound when i first open the notebook

This problem started when i unlugged my headphones

HP/Compaq :: DV6000 Dual Monitor

Jun 10, 2009

I'm trying to set up dual monitors, and can't seem to get it to work.

I'm using a external LCD with a DVI->VGA converter plugged into the laptop. The LCD knows there's a signal as when I plug it in it just goes blank as opposed to the "no signal" screen.

However the laptop doesn't seem to detect it. When I go to graphics properties it says "Multiple Display, blah blah, please connect another display". And there's no tab for another monitor or anything.

HP/Compaq :: Dv6000- Stopped Loading The OS

Dec 8, 2009

My little brother has a laptop that has stopped loading the OS, and now It keeps restarting.

It is a HP Pavillion dv6000

Most likely a virus has crippled the MBR (Master Boot Record) That's what the original thought was.

Here is what I have already tried:
-- Tried running HP recovery (nothing)
-- Tried resetting to factory defaults.
-- Tried loading and XP disc in to use the recovery program on that. (Laptop came with Vista I do not have a disc) ((After this is when it started to continuously restart))

I used to be able to enter the BIOS. Now I can not.

I am utterly lost right now.

I even took it into my A+ certification class, that is where we tried the above.

HP/Compaq :: HP Pavilion Dv6000 Not Working

Mar 5, 2010

model: dv6208nr
p/n: RP162UA

out of warranty

no wireless, hard time starting up, sound crashes, system freezes when updating things(can only use for 30min before it crashes), can only start it when it's cooled off, usually just restarts itself when the hd light doesn't come on(you know[power][charging][reading hd])

The no wireless and sound crashes were my first problems, then the system melted down. I bought it used off craigslist Christmas 2008 and any warranty time was long gone when it crashed Halloween 2009.

HP/Compaq :: DV6000 Screen Black

Sep 13, 2009

what to do with this laptop. When first turned on the blue lights come on, there is a dim hue to the screen and then black while the puter boots up. Through the network I can access the files but cannot see them on the dv6000 screen. I attached an old external screen and rebooted with the Windows sign-in showing for about 5 secs and then black. Took out the battery, held down power button for 60 secs and then plugged in power and started the puter. Still black screen.

Does it sound like an inverter or motherboard? Should I call it day with this and buy a cheap laptop. I mostly transcribe files. No gaming.

HP/Compaq :: DV6000 Failed Mobo Or HDD

Jan 15, 2009

I've got a DV6000 here that seems to have some sort of motherboard or HDD problem.

I load up an XP Pro installation and everything seems to work fine until it gets to "Setup is now loading Windows" at which point the installation just hangs. Native SATA is turned off. Tried it twice, too.

I've tried the installation with a Windows 7 Beta DVD as well, and the installation also hangs shortly after Windows finishes loading its files. I tried Windows 7 with native SATA turned on and off.

I'm not 100% sure that the HDD is ok as I don't have anything with which to test it, but the installation will get past this point in my E6400.

I'm not that familiar with HP computers, so I'm wondering if I'm missing something obvious or if there's a hardware problem.

HP/Compaq :: HP Dv6000 Screen Replace

Aug 7, 2009

I recently aquired damage to my laptop screen, an HP dv6000 with a 14.1 inch (wide) screen. I am looking to purchase a new one, however the 'specs' or details of the screen (ex. Video connector info, backlight type) are way out of my realm of understanding.

Before I purchase a new screen, I would like to make sure it is completely compatible with my laptop. How am I able to determine this?

Also, what is the esthetic/quality difference between Glossy and Matte type screens?

HP/Compaq :: Dv6000- 3 Starts And Reboots To Run

Jun 6, 2009

I have a dv6000 and I have been finding lately that I need to restart the laptop 3 times in order for everything to work. First time I can't click on any icons. Restart. Second time when I run my mouse over the start icon the hour glass appears and I can't activate ctr,alt delete. Restart. Third time the wireless does not start. Then I proceed to reboot and and start and things run fine. Weird. Rebooting is done by holding the power button down.
