HP Pavilion dv6000 Laptop Screen Broken. Help!

Q: HP Pavilion dv6000 Laptop Screen Broken. Help!

I have an HP Pavilion dv6000. However, the problem is that the screen's dead and I can't see for love nor money anything on it to be able to connect a TV screen to it to be able to use it as an external screen. The machine itself still works, the screen's just on the blink. I have NO idea what keyboard commands I'd have to use to blindly connect the TV to the laptop to make the TV turn into a computer screen. I have one cable attached to both the TV and the laptop, but do I need another? I think the cable I have right now is a VGA. Would you help, please? It's really important.

Don't think I need to mention the OS in this forum, but just cuz it's reminding me to do so in the banner - Windows Vista lol

Thank you!

Hello a few days ago I could turn on this laptop for some reason (running windows xp) so came to the conclusion that the mobo fried so I bought another mobo out of ebay. I changed it and now the computer boots and I get the windows xp welcome sound but with a grey screen with some dull lines of color vertical. So I hooked up an external monitor and I see video up to first windows xp logo and it changes to black to go to the final screen the monitor looses signal. With the external monitor I can get to the bios but I don't see anything in there related to the video which I find weird. Does anyone know what might be causing this problem? Could it be that the mobo is bad?

Thank you for joining in on the HP Support Forums and Welcome @Dawndi85.  I will do my absolute best to help! You had mentioned receiving a black screen on your HP Pavilion Dv6000 Notebook PC and you had done a disk test and the test had said to replace the hard disk.  Do you have recovery media?Can you please let me know the error codes or exact error/response of the hard disk test? Here are two documents that will help you troubleshoot to find out the deeper cause. Hard Drive Failure Errors: Imminent Failure, Smart, BIOHD, HD535, etc.Testing for Hardware Failures.Have you tried to Restore the BIOS? If not, please try this step first. Then, just to be on the safe side, back up your data that way it does not get lost. However, there might be certain conditions that cause a hard drive failure message to display when a problem does not exist (a false positive). To fix false positive hard drive errors, please try updating the hard drive firmware. Have you backed up any of your information? If not, here is a document for you on Backing Up Your Files (Windows 10, 8). You may be able to get your stuff off the hard drive. I would much rather see you safe than sorry.  Could you please provide me with your Model Number (How Do I Find My Model Number or Product Number?) and Which Windows Operating Systems you are running. Please let me know if these steps resolve...

Hey,

I have an HP Pavilion dv6000 customized to order laptop. It came with an 80GB HDD which was running out of space so I purchased a new 250GB 2.5" SATA drive from ZipZoomFly.com for it and followed HP's procedure on replacing the harddrive. When I reboot the computer once it is installed, naturally no OS boots. However, when I insert a fresh XP MCE OEM copy, and I run the set up, it tells me that it can not find any hard disks and I should check the configuration or see if there are any harddisk manufacturer utilities to prepare the drive. (Not in those exact words, but something like that.) It's a Western Digital drive so I used their DataLifeguard utility for DOS and booted from it. This software detected the harddrive product number however it said that the jumpers may be incorrect or something like that however the drive is NOT using nor came with any jumper shunts. So, I thought maybe the drive could be corrupt so I used a SATA to USB adapter with the drive and formatted the drive with Disk Management on my desktop pc and the drive works fine via USB on the desktop however same problem on the laptop. I then replaced the old harddrive and hooked up the new one via USB and it still works fine that way. For some reason, this laptop doesnt like the new HDD as a boot device. It is very frustrating as I am going back to college in 2 days and I would like this to work for more storage on the boot drive. Any and all help is greatly appreciated!

I have an HP Pavilion DV6000 (more exactly DV6736NR) laptop here and I cannot find drivers for the video or the "base system device". I have drivers downloaded for Vista (which everyone says works in Windows 7); but, when I try to install them, the process aborts with a message that the best driver for the devices are already installed.

Problems are "base system device" has an exclamation point with it so it isn't working properly and the display adapter is listed as "standard VGA graphics adapter", which gives me no resolutions that appropriate for wide screen..

 For two years, I had been a proud user of my big screen laptop until the day I opened the lid and the plastic behind the left hinge crumbled like a cookie. I was totally shocked. I hadn't hit my laptop against anything nor had I dropped it, why, I hadn't even carried it around like most people do. The bloody hinge broke just like that. I was in for more shock and disappointment when the screen casing came apart when I tried to close the lid. Before I knew it, the damage had been done. I realized that I could not use my laptop like I normally do anymore. Since then, I have left the lid open always lest it break the screen completely. On the Forum, I learned that this is a design issue and many more users have suffered broken hinges and casings. If that's the case, why is HP not recalling faulty models? I have been an ardent fan of HP for twenty years. (Talking of fans, ever since the hinge broke and the casing came apart, I have been getting error messages about the cooling fan not functioning properly, that I need to shut down my PC). My first computer was a HP Pavilion desktop and so was my first printer. A few years ago, I even designed a logo for HP Shadow Labs, but it was not selected as a prospective design. That's another story. Now, how am I going to take my laptop to the city which is 100 miles away when I cannot safely close the lid even? I am out of warranty, so I will have to pay for replacements and service. Why should I pay for something... Read more

Have an HP Pavilion dv6000 laptop with an Intel Core 2 T7200 CPU and am trying to get it to recognize 4gb of RAM. Am using Windows XP Professional as my operating system and am aware that if 4gb of RAM is installed correctly the operating system will only display 3.25 gb of RAM.

Here's my situation: I installed (2) 2gb chips and the computer wouldn't boot. So I downgraded to (1) 2gb chip and (1) 1gb chip and 3gb of RAM showed up as working on my computer.

I later heard that if I update the BIOS I can upgrade to 4gb of RAM. So I searched around for the lastest BIOS with no luck. The HP site for my computer only has a BIOS update for computers with AMD processors. I managed to find a BIOS that was compatible with my computer and reinstalled the 4gb of RAM and this time the computer did boot. BUT now when I look at the system properties it shows only 2.99gb of RAM which is even less than the 3.00gb that was showing up when I only had 3gb of RAM in my computer!

I know the 4gb of RAM will show up as 3.25gb in my system properties if it is being recognized correctly and my question is does anyone know where to get the correct BIOS upgrade for my computer so the RAM will be fully recognized? Originally I had BIOS version 16 so it would have to be later than that.

Thanks.

Hey folks,

I've had my HP for 2yrs now and it's always been fine until the last 6 months or so when the battery life was slowly diminishing when it wasn't connected to the charger.

Anyway got a new 12-cell battery and ever since then my laptop's suddenly switches off due to overheating.

It got me thinking that that battery may be responsible?

However the laptop would overheat before this change but it never automatically switched off.

Any help?

Thanks, Naaila
 

A:Hp pavilion dv6000 overheating

Buy a can of compressed air and blow out any dust from the vents and fans.

The DV6000 is part of the heavily flawed line of HP models that has critical over heating and failure issues. Se if yours is one of them: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c01087277&lc=en&cc=us

I'd also strongly recommend a BIOS model for the laptop even if its not one of the affected models, for the affected models its a must or you'll eventually end up with a non-functional laptop: http://h20180.www2.hp.com/apps/Look...pe=s-002&h_query=dv6000&submit.x=0&submit.y=0
Make sure to let the laptop cool down completely before doing the update.

After doing that if the laptop still has issues then maybe there is an issue with the new battery or due to its size its increasing the inherent overheating issue. Your 12 cell battery, is it a physically bigger battery?

Hello!I am using a HP Pavilion dv6000 notebook, with a 32-bit Vista business, 2 processors of Genuine Intel with 1.73GHz each, and only 1GB of RAM. I would like to upgrade the RAM to 4GB, but I don't know if that's possible, and/or how to do that. I hope you guys can help me.Thanks.

A:How to upgrade RAM on HP Pavilion dv6000 ?

We need to know the exact model number from the tag on the bottom of the laptop. You can then just check by model number with Crucial at crucial.com to check max memory specs. Some of the dv6000s max at 2 gigs as you likely already know. 2 gigs is dirt cheap and would be a major improvement. With 32 bit Vista even if you install 4 gigs only 3 will be available for Windows to use. So 2 gigs is your best bet anyway. The difference between 1 gig and 2 is huge, the difference between 2 and 3 is negligible, in my opinion.

I go to the technician for notebooks (before in my country we do not have HP store) and he tell me that my notebook has two ribbon cables under keyboard broken. One is for quick launch buttons, and one is for power button. One cable (for quick launch buttons) i buy by internet in ebay store, and i am looking to buy another one, that for power button. Problem: one day before those two ribbons cable broke , i have chang/upgrade the bios version. The name of old version if BIOS i do not remmember but the new version that i have upgradet is F.3D. The day after after i do this upgrade, i found out that those two ribbons cable are broken.

A:Please help me in a problem with HP Pavilion dv6000

Actually in my experience, those two errors are not serious if this is the first time it booted since you did the upgrade.  Date and Time have been reset so you just need to go in and enter it in again.  The checksum is because some of the settings have changed with the upgrade, others have reverted to a default and they don't match with the last known good setting that was stored in memory (because it was from the old bios).  Going in and making any changes that need to be made and then saving your settings usually gets you going.  However if you boot it again and this error keeps coming up, then you may have a bad CMOS battery that isn't holding a charge or a pooched firmware upgrade.

A:want to upgrade RAM on HP Pavilion dv6000

Hi: I have attached the link to your service manual. Page 1-2 states you are already at the max with 2 GB. http://h10032.www1.hp.com/ctg/Manual/c01035677.pdf If you know someone who may have a 2 GB PC2 5300 chip, you can remove one of your 1 GB chips and see if it works, and reports 3 GB. If it reports 3 GB, then it would report 4 more than likely. The chipset supports up to 4 GB of memory, but the BIOS may not allow it, and there are no BIOS release notes that add support for 4 GB of memory, so it would have to be an experiment on your part. Installing memory is relatively easy. read Chapter 5 of the service manual for how to do it. Specifically chapter 5, starting on Page 5-12. Remember to remove the battery and A/C power before taking anything apart. Paul

It freezes at times durring normal use and sometimes on startup*
I get "operating system cannot be found" on startup
Streaming a video on a websight like hulu tends to make it freeze, this lead me to think the prob. might be ram related, the ram has a bit more than 2 gigs free of 12. A fee weeks ago the ram was very close to being full, and was showing as a red bar instead of green.
It will sometimes freeze and then the screen will go blue saying something to the effect of it's shutting down so not to hurt it's self
I had 1 or 2 trojan horses and 1-2 viruses, two of which where quarantined by AVG free 9.0 and the others by Avast free Antivirus, although I do not recall what viruses they where.
To (try) fix the problam I downloaded 500+ mb of windows updates, did a compleat disk defrag 2x, scanned the computer for viruses, Trojan horses etc with Avast and AVG ( both up to date free editions). The computer has done several system restores and something else after it tries to start unsuccesully.

Hello and welcome to TSF.

It sounds like your hard drive is failing to me, especially because of this:

The most vulnerable part of any PC is its hard drive; it's the only mechanical (moving) part in a computer. Operating system not found is a message displayed when the computer can't find an operating systems on any hard drives, also indicating that it may not be seeing your hard drive at all. Run the appropriate hard drive diagnostic tool from here: http://carrona.org/hddiag.html

If the hard drive does end up being the cause then you could replace it yourself for much cheaper than bringing it to a shop.

I have to change the internal hard drive of an HP Pavilion Entertainment Dv6000 laptop from 2007. My question is, does the new internal hard drive have to be a specific one or any I might find at the store? In other words are all laptop internal hard drives generic?

A:Need HP Pavilion DV6000 Drivers

Yes this np you will be able to find your drivers for DV6000 on this page -
Select software and drivers HP Pavilion dv6000 CTO Notebook PC - HP Customer Care (United States - English)

You can also finder w7 video drivers on 1 of these 3 sites -
Ati - Graphics Drivers & Software
Nvidia - Drivers - Download NVIDIA Drivers
Anything Intel you can download here but i dont think they have any W7 drivers yet but the vista drivers work - Download Software, Drivers and Utilities

If you cant get a driver to install because of an OS mismatch error (wont install) do the following - match the OS the drivers are written for with the compatibility mode you choose eg vista with vista compatibility mode :

To install a driver OR program in compatibility mode - right click the setup.exe file - click properties - click compatibility - check run in compatibility with vista/xp etc - check run as administrator - leave the rest blank. Start setup.exe and install.

Woke up this morning to continue with my work on the above machine but it simply wont boot. The battery is fully charged and the charging adapter is okay because it worked on another computer. When I press the power button of the computer nothing happens. No fan sound no picture, absolutely nothing except that the power LED flickers for a second and that's all. The machine is barely a year old and I have not experienced this before. Have tried reseating the memory cards; removed and inserted the battery all to no avail. Please help. Bosunojay

I just recently swapped out a motherboard for a HP Pavilion dv6000 laptop. After getting the whole thing put back together, I plugged in the power cable and hit the power button, and it seemed to start spinning for maybe 1.5 seconds. Then it powered off.

I looked at the power jack and the blue LED that forms a ring around the jack was still on. I removed the power cable and plugged it back in, then tried to turn it on again. It spun for maybe a second before turning off again. Now the circular blue LED does not light up when I plug in the power. Nothing happens anymore.

Did the board just fry?

Kind of a long-winded problem, so I'll try to condense.
My daughter's HP Pavilion DV6000 laptop came with Vista Home Premium installed. It has an AMD processor, nVidia graphics, and SATA HDD. The HDD died, so it needs replacing and of course the OS installed on the new HDD. I've done this before when I built my old Intel-based desktop PC originally and when its HDD died last year.
Naturally, she didn't get a full install CD for Vista when she bought the laptop about 2-3 years ago. I wanted to install XP Pro on it, but XP and SATA don't get along too well from what I've researched. From what I gather, there are a couple methods to install XP on a SATA HDD. One involves creating a bootable CD with the appropriate SATA drivers slip-streamed along with XP. I've also read a bit about going into the BIOS and disabling SATA, installing XP, and later installing the SATA drivers, rebooting and entering the BIOS again, re-enabling SATA, and continuing to let XP boot with SATA support.

I suppose using the slip-stream method would probably be easiest, but would the other method be just as simple? Will the SATA drivers for Vista fork with XP? Or am I getting off track here?

Any advice appreciated.
