HP/Compaq :: Which Motherboard Do I Buy To Replace My Broken One
Jul 29, 2009
I have a DV9000, 17inch. A number (that I think is significant) 439112-001 is on the bottom of the laptop.
I need to buy a refurbished/spare part motherboard to replace the one that died in my other computer, but I can't figure out which one to buy. At first I thought it was as simple as buying a used DV9000 laptop or motherboard, but apparently not only does the screen size (13 vs 19 inch) matter, but also a number.
I see numbers on ebay with stuff like "447983-001"--that's why I thought that one number on the bottom of mine was important. But I can't find that number on any motherboard on ebay, and it only turns up 300 pages on google, which leads me to believe it isn't the right number.
One of my mates has a dead M1330. I told him about the "oven" trick but his wife might hurt the both of us. It is however possible to replace the motherboard with the integrated X3100 motherboard correct?
I have xps gen 2 with a faulty video card and i was wondring if its possible to replace the motherboard with M1710 motherboard so i can fit my 7900 gs video card in it and put all the other hardware parts for the xps gen2 motherboard to the M1710 motherboard in the XPS Gen2 palmrest ... so can u please give me some hints if its possible to do it or not,so basiclly its replacing a motherboard and putting all the old part in the new 1 ..
I noticed that if I have to shut it down by turning the power off directly from the power switch (without shutting down Vista first), some problems arise.
The next time you try to boot the laptop after doing an "emergency shut down" like that, the laptop starts making a very loud beeping noise and it's very hard to boot it (eventually it will boot, though). My friend said he doesn't have problems like this even if he has to turn off the power by pressing the power button for 4 secs.
6 months or so ago I spilled coke on my laptop, im under complete care so it was sent in and repaired. Today a Dell Tech just came to replace my motherboard and fan due to overheating. He disassembled my laptop and I discover that:
My hard drive and bay are corroded! My cpu still had (caramelized) coke on it!
I have a compaq V5000 laptop. My granddaughter borowed it over the weekend and she brought it back with the USB port broken on it. it has 2 ports one on top of the other and the center seperator is broken, it can not be used anymore. so My question is will this work so I can have USB? 4 Port USB 2.0 To ExpressCard Express Card 34/54 I saw it on ebay and It look's like just what I need. here is the link [url]
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.
i have on my HP TX2000 laptop is that the wifi switch stays in the amber color , and no matter how much i play with the switch , doesn't change . i tried to initiate the " diagnose & repair " on it , but it keeps saying that a " plug is disconnected ".
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?
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 recently took my Compaq Presario C714NR laptop on a road trip, and one day some water spilled on the case without me realizing it, so that the case and laptop were wet when I got to my hotel room. The screen no longer illuminates - I can just barely see the proper windows and images on the screen if there is bright light in the room, but it's nearly invisible. I assume that either the backlight is dead or that a wire/connection to the backlight is loose or shorted.
Several months ago I had to replace the screen when the laptop was dropped and the screen broken (bought a new replace ment screen through eBay, replaced it myself), so the screen has had a bit of a hard life.
my laptop's lcd screen died 1 month after guarantee expiry. Since original LCD replacement screens are crazy expensive, I bought physically compatible lcd screen, that supports same resolution.
But I cannot get any higher resolution as 1024x768 (I've used 1400x1050 on original). I suspect there is a problem with drivers - my screen is recognized as plug and play monitor, but settings won't offer me any higher screen resolution.
I have a HP DV9005US Laptop, which was bought in Nov. 2006. The Laptop looks good aesthetically but has lot of issues with the Laptop like non-working USB Ports, Webcam, WIFI. Looks like the issue is with Motherboard. Even the CD Drive is broken.
Took the Laptop to local Retail Stores like Best Buy,Office Depot etc. but they were quoting repair costs of around $400, which looks too expensive.
A friend of mine has a HP DV6600 with a suspected dead motherboard.
Basically the battery won't charge. A different charger and different battery have been tried but to no success. He has taken it to PC World who say the motherboard is fried, I come to the same conclusion as well as a different battery and charger have been tried. PC World want £250 to fix it.
I've taken a couple of Acer laptops apart and rebuilt them no problems. I'm thinking of doing this for my friend. How easy are HP's to dismantle to fit a motherboard.
Also does anyone know anywhere apart from ebay for motherboards. I've had a look but can only find one, and it may not fit as it's an AMD one, his may be an intel one, just in the process of finding out.
I bought an HP DV2432nr with a bad motherboard. I am going to replace the mobo and give it to my GF for her college graduation present. I did some checking and found that this model is not covered by the extended service warranty deal for the failing motherboards so I am likely going to be buying a mobo for it. I checked with a higher up manager at HP that I know to see what he could do but havent heard anything back yet. Hopefully he can get me one for free or cheap but Im not putting a lot of stock in that one.
I have the machine apart and mobo is out. I have the spare part number and have located the mobo for like 150. However, what I was wondering was if it would be possible to put a mobo from a different DV2000 model in to this one? This one I have has the athlon t53 and nvidia 6150. I would really like to get a mobo out of like a dv27xx since those have the nvidia8400. Think this would work? Obviously if I get an intel board I will need to buy an intel processor. Without having both boards I would really not have a way to tell for sure. Also, I would need the spare part number for a dv27xx or other model mobo.
to figure the mess that are DVD laptop model numbers? I assume from the past that the bay in my NX9420 is a 9.5mm multi-bay II, yes?
I was going to grab a UJ-852 drive as it is listed as compatible with the NW9440...and near as I recall the only difference between the two models was the graphics card options and the included warranties.
My NX9420 has been running pretty much 24/7 since I bought in in around in early 2007.
Been through three HDD upgrades and now at 500GB, 4GB RAM...still plugging along wonderfully. Until the DVD drive started popping open just because...I finally had enough, took it out, opened it up and the danged front ribbon cable was so weakened it just fell apart in the middle at the bend...soooo, no real hope of repair so I felt it best to just upgrade the drive to something newer...hence does the UJ-852 and will it fit...I truly have looked, emailed vendors and cannot seem to figure out of the drives are only for the external Multi-bay II or I can remove any attached adapter and use the old mounting bracket then slide it into the bay and be done...maybe a new drive but nothing more...
My sister has a HP laptop with a bad DVD burner, it won't burn and it makes a grinding sound whenever a disk is in the drive. I don't know the model, anyway it's still under warranty and I'm wonder if she will have to send the laptop back in order for them to replace it. Sending it back is a big no no, and I can replace the drive myself.
I have an opportunity to buy an HP DV5-1157CA in Canada for a great price:
It's a 15.4" which makes it bigger obviously than the m1330.
Pro's: ----- Centrino 2/Montevino platform 4 GB vs. 3GB that I have 9600M GT vs. 8400M GS possible avoidance of future GPU problems great clearance price of $997 Canadian
Con's: ------ bigger form factor plastic chassis vs. magnesium alloy and aluminum lower battery life no fingerprint reader still an Nvidia GPU (can we trust Nvidia anymore) 2 Ghz P7350 vs. 2.4 Ghz T8300
If your base enclosure (the bottom chassis cover) gets accidentally damaged, what happens to the service tag when you replace that part yourself?
You see, that part carries the service tag on it for warranty purposes. I know the mobo is also tagged (tattoo'd) with the service tag info, but then what happens if the mobo dies, and you have replaced the bottom cover?
My guess is that you could peel off the service tag from the old part and somehow glue it onto the new one, which wouldn't be very nice.
Also what would HP do if they were carrying out the repair?
I checked out the service manual, to read up on disassembly. Thinking about opening my notebook up and removing the heat pads and replacing them with copper shims to reduce heat. that is, unless someone can find a way to downclock the GPU for cooling purposes... But I'd like to get it cooler so the fan won't have to run all the time.
I got an hp dv4 for christmas '08 and i really love the portability of the computer, 14 inches is perfect, but its gaming capabilities are shot bc of the integrated graphics. My parents bought the laptop to surprise me, but they don't really know much about computers and thought it would be good for games. I am wondering is there any possible upgrade available that would be cheaper than getting a whole new laptop?
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?
