I own a Pavilion DV9700 notebook and I noticed that as I was opening my display, the image would disappear. Upon gutting half of my laptop, I noticed that a display cable was ruptured (stuck under a hinge). I took a picture and pointed out the ruptured cable (see below).
following question: 1. What part do I need to order? 2. Are there DIY instructions out there?
My HP notebook's keyboard frequently stopped functioning. Each time required that I turn off the computer then turn it back on again. Recently the amount of time between each off/on was so short as to make the machine unusable, except when at home with an external keyboard. So I decided to venture into ensuring the keyboard was securely attached to the motherboard. I'm not expert and ended up breaking one leg of the plastic snap-on that holds the keyboard ribbon onto the motherboard. Oops.
So now I would like to know where I can obtain another one of these cute little snap-on thingies. I've looked into purchasing a new keyboard, which I'll probably do anyway, but I confirmed with a number of sellers that the plastic snap-on is included with the motherboard, not the keyboard. Bummer. So anyone have a suggestion on where I can get this snap-on thingy from?
Note that my notebook is an nx7000 and the keyboard has a model number 337016-001. Also, I've attached a photo of the snap-on thingy:
I sent my 8510p laptop in to HP to fix a video problem and they replaced the video board, sent it back to me. When I got it back it was very clear that there was still a problem, the video signal intermittently clouded up like there was a disconnect in the cable - I figured the tech didn't press the connector cable firmly into place. I sent it back for the 2nd time.
I got the laptop back and all my video problems were fixed; however, there was now a 2 to 3 inch long crack around one of the screws on the bottom of the case - like someone took a chisel or a screwdriver to pry up at the case. I told customer service and they sent a box for me to pack it up and send it back. This is the 3rd week in a row without my computer at home - it's starting to cause major problems because I need my computer to study.
I get a call back this last Friday from billing at HP telling me they aren't going to fix the case unless I pay them $200 even though it's very clear that the crack was caused by an incompetent tech trying to get into the unit. There was no damage to the shipping box and this kind of crack simply could not have happened during shipping - HP also tells me that because I got it late Thursday and didn't report it til Sunday morning, that I can't be covered for shipping damage (even though there was no shipping damage). They want $89 to send it back to me unfixed too.
I told them I wouldn't pay them anything for damage they caused - I left a message on the voicemail of the billing department supervisor...............
searching for the best spec'd DV9000 gpu, but my search results always just show up the overheating problem... does anyone know if there is a list around with all the different options of DV9000's? I currently have a 7600 go GPU, and I just bought a DV9000 mobo for $3 with a 7900 go GPU on it. As I can get them fairly cheap if I'm lucky, I want to find out what is the best GPU available on a DV9000 system board.
i just took apart my laptop yesterday to change my cpu on it. i was running T7500 and changed it to T8300 and man.... that T8300 is so cool. with AS5 my idle temps are down to 25-27*C thats a HUGE jump from my old T7500 which was a mini baking oven.
but anyways.... it took me 3 hours to take everything apart watching videos videos on hp.com but onc ei took it apart, i looked at the HSF and man its one of the weakest hsf i've seen. the only part thats copper is just a tiny square base thats on top of cpu. everything else is crap. and there were some pads on the end of the hsf to i guess cool the little things on the side. (forgot what they were called) i wanted to apply the AS5 to all the places that the pads were touching, but that part of the HFS was not copper. i'm not sure what it was.
i'm sure everyone that ever replaced cpu on the DV9000 had taken the whole laptop apart... have you guys ever thought about replacing the HSF with an aftermarket HSF thats better than the stock? i tried searching and found none that were any better than the stock. none of them are all copper.
and i did not want to put AS5 on the other things that has that white/beige pad on, since the bottom of the HSF looked weak and i did not want to fry the chips/what ever the pads were supposed to cool... can you guys help me find a better HSF for the laptop? or that stock crappy hsf is the best/only thing for me?
I have installed Intel X-25M SSD with Windows 7 Ultimate in my old dv9000 (CD, 1 Gb RAM), and it is quite a disaster. The laptop is getting hot, installing programs (Portal from Steam) results in 90 C on the processor and a shutdown...
I use RM CPU Clock to lower CPU multiplier from 13x to 6x (it works on my HDD and Windows XP, I don't have issues), but on SSD it won't help much.
Browsing: 70 C Installing software: up to 90 C and sometimes a shutdown... Playing games: up to 80 C
It all started when my dv9000 stopped detecting the DVDRW drive, i tried the same optical drive on a friend's laptop and it worked perfectly. I decided to go for an external DVD drive. After a while it stopped booting from the secondary hard drive (primary hard drive had crashed, so i installed vista on the secondary one). It detects the HDD, but it does not boot from it, the HDD is not even listed in the boot media list when you press f9 button at poweron. So i decided it was time to upgrade the bios, i entered my product number at the hp website, it gave a dv9627 as my model, in the bios its listed as a dv9500, so i downloaded the bios update for dv9500, boot from bootable USB Drive and did the upgrade. From then on my laptop never came on again. I found out about the crisis recovery tool, got a usb floppy drive, created the recovery disk, removed the battery held down the win + b first, plugged in power, powered on, left it for around 15mins, nothing happened, tried fn+b still nothing. The laptop screen just flickers once when i press the power button, power led on, hdd led comes on and then goes off, media button led are all on, other than that no sign of life, but the processor gets alittle hot so i suspect its still functioning. I really need help, i believe the bios can be recovered without sending the laptop to hp. I'm a student running on a really tight budget.
I originally set the machine up with two partitions, one for his documents and the C: My problems started when I was doing some routine maintenance to the machine which belongs to my brother. The C partition was getting quite low so I decided to knock some space of d and add to c. I have done this many times using partition magic but for some reason it failed.
This left me we a hall.dll error on boot, however the machine will still boot if I pressed enter. It also meant that I had about 2 gig of partitioned space, plus the 1 gig for quick launch.
I re-added the 2gig space back to D using gParted, but still no luck, so I then decided to reinstall quick launch, which seemed to go ok accept that after I rebooted, Nothing, just a blinking cursor on the screen.
I then tired to do a recovery using the disks, of course though disk two and three are stuffed. I cant see anywhere, where it asks me to press f11 to restore from the recovery partition which still should be intact............
The speakers for my dv9640us are cracking when the songs have a little bit of bass, guess they're damaged. They're altec lansing. I was searching and found some posts saying very good things about harman kardon speakers and JBL,anyone knows if there is such a thing as speakers replacement or upgrade for notebooks? If not i guess i'll have to buy new altec ones.
I have a mystery that I hope someone can help with. My dv9000 (dv9308nr) won't connect with my daughter's NETGEAR wireless router. Specifically the router is a NETGEAR WPNT 834. My computer works great with my Motorola wireless router. It also works great with my mothers Linksys wireless router and the wireless router at work. Don't know the brand of the router at work. I've verified multiple times the network key, etc. My daughter's Apple Macbook with the same key works properly.
I have a DV9000 laptop and I have problem with the fan control and the Heat Sink. The tempeture of the GPU and CPU go very high (GPU 60 and CPU 48), but the fan runs very slow, like if the tempeture is ok and after that the computer stops. As well I want to replace the pads from the heat sink, so I would like to know which types of pads I should use for this computer and where the GPU is located, because there are three chips (the CPU in right side, one in the middle and another in the left side with the nvidia signature). my computer is Intel Duo and the bios is version D.25.
They have kasperski 2009 full internet protection. So heres the problem. One day they call me over that when they scroll on websites the text gets all squished together and the windows take forever to move/load. so we ran a scan and nothing came out wrong.
Then next time the computer was turned on the logo page that appears at the beginning that says HP and u could press the function keys to go to safety mode, it now never appears and there is a blank screen for about 3min and the vista sign appears and it starts. but overall the computer is very slow and has the scrolling problems. But a few days ago kasperski keeps popping up saying that black keys are missing and to update. So when ever i try it never updates just sits there at 0%. but we do have internet like firefox works fine just slow and the scrolling is annoying because after a while u can;t read anything on a page. But wat is going on? Is it a virus ? and i wanted to recover the computer cuz i do have recovery CD's but i can't even get to the function keys or safety mode and when i try it normally the computer either beeps and turns off or just turns off. i also tried system recovery and it didn;t complete. sorry i know this is alot but sometimes the screen goes black in random moments and comes back and says the screen drivers have recovered from like an error or sumthing. like i think it'd be best to just restore the computer at this point, but i don;t know how if i can't use the function keys or safety mode.
problem with my Dv9000. When I go to play a DVD it plays but very choppy like a scratched disk. I have tried many other DVD's and they all play this way. The movie seems to be going and stopping constantly. I have checked the processor and ram and they are not even being put under and load so I know it is not that. At least I think. I have also tried to use different programs to play the movies and the same thing. Could I have a bad dvd-rw drive?
Anything new come out such as a driver or download that will help the laptop cool? Been trying everything for months with no lock. Called HP and they said its gonna cost me to fix something that the knew was wrong in the first place. Not to mention Wifi is going out. So any updates?
i got into reading about copper mod and from that thread i was pointed in the direction of undervolting thread.... well i decided to try it out
i read like the 1st 15 pages or so and decided to give it a try... downloaded orthos and HWmonitor, did a 100% cpu load for 20 minutes to find my max temp at load and i had 69*C highest on my core#1 (core#0 always seems to be cooler by 2-4*C almost all the time
ok so i bought this dv9000 from best buy over a year ago(meaning my warranty is over . And i had some problems with it a few weeks ago .
1. My hard driver died completly on me .
2. My uncle gave me his hard drive and i tried installing win XP That didnt really work cause i couldnt figure out the graphic driver.
3. A friend of my dad`s installed windows vista(ultimate edition ) and everything works perfectly fine ......
With one exception ! whenever i try installing a game( WoW) it works but i cant get the 3rd expansion installed ... it goes up to 30% and it automatically shuts down without a warning or whatnot . The thing is that i THINK my vent is dusty ( not sure thats why im asking you people).
SO WHAT SHOULD I DO ? is it the vent ? im more than grateful to whoever tries to help me out with this .
My roommate has a DV9000 with a wifiG card in it. We live in an apartment complex with 30-40 networks within our range. It is really slowing down our wireless performance because of how crowded the 2.4Ghz frequency is. I am a Thinkpad guy so I don't know how easy it would be, but is there an internal WifiN card for this laptop so we could move to a 5Ghz network?
My girlfriends HP dv9000 adapter broke at the cord where it plugs in the the laptop and she needs to buy a replacement. It is an 18.5V 3Amp adapter. She found one on ebay (claiming to be new) for like $0.99, but I'm extremely skeptical that it will work satisfactorily and may even damage the laptop.
Do you all have any suggestions for replacing it? Purchasing a new one from HP would work, but it is definitely the most expensive options. Has anybody had any luck with ones from other sellers, from ebay, amazon, etc.?
