I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I have been have problems with my DV4000 charging, it would charge only if I connected a external monitor to it, it was using that circuit as it earth source, you only had to connect it with no power.
It turned out to be the AC adpter socket, there is a tiny micro switch inside the socket which is opened when the adpter is plugged in, in my case the switch was damaged and wasn't switching as it is surposed to.
The laptop was taken apart and the socket unsoldered and replaced with a new one, approx 15.
hope this is useful to you all, thanks also to Colin from : http://www.truestate.com/hprepair/ a really helpful genuine Guy.

A:Charging HP Pavilion DV4000

This is a very common problem with laptops in general. People first suspect and replace the AC adapter, then find out that the DC jack (in the US) is bad. Some of the DC jacks are on a separate cable, and some DC jacks are soldered onto the motherboards. I have a Toshiba Satellite with a soldered DC jack. This jack cost $42. The laptop has to be completely disassembled

I have a HP Pavilion DV4000 that is not powering on. The A/C connection seems to be loose and not fitting in tightly like it usually does. I also do not see the blue light where the connection goes into the computer. Would this be caused by the charging port not connecting with the Power supply on the motherboard. Could the motherboard have failed? What should I do to find out what the issue is and how to go about fixing this problem. Thanks for any suggestions.

I have a friends HP Pavilion DV4000 laptop, it has been dropped but there is no external physical damage, but it has stopped charging in the normal way.
When I was given the laptop it was completely dead, it had in fact run the battery completely flat, a fact that not forthcoming until I had stripped it down looking for any signs of obvious damage or broken connections etc. which I didn?t find.
I purchased another DV4000 off Ebay with a damaged screen, having used the hardrive from the original and connected to an external monitor everything worked fine including the charging, the battery now back to 100%.
The original laptop screen was reattached and all was fine picture perfect everything running as it should, almost.
The problem I have is that the AC adapter will only charge and run the laptop when an external monitor is connected to the VGA socket, disconnect and it reverts back to battery only, considering the screen and inverter are the only components used from the original I assumed that there may be a problem with the inverter, I found another screen assembly and replaced that, and the problem is still there.
I now have Two DV4000 laptop?s which I assume have the same fault, the hardrive & AC adapter are the only two components that are shared, both work very well apart from the need to connect them to an external monitor through the VGA socket in order to get them to run and charge the battery.

Hello, can anyone help me to find a driver for my video controller? I've just upgraded to windows 7 from xp, and HP doesnt seem to make drivers for my old laptop anymore, though windows 7 is running pretty smoothly! I've been able to find all of the missing drivers, like the one for my soundcard, and install them either in vista or xp compatibility mode, but I can't seem to find this last one. I read in another thread that the hardware IDs might be helpful. Well, here are the hardware ids listed for my video controller (I'm still not even sure what the video controller does):
PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_2792&SUBSYS_3081103C&REV_03
PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_2792&SUBSYS_3081103C
PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_2792&CC_038000
PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_2792&CC_0380

If anyone could help me with this, I would certainly appreciate it.

Oh, one other thing, while I'm posting here, my track pad works to click and move the pointer around the screen, but the scrolling functionality has gone. Anyone have any suggestions on this one? Thanks.

My friend bought a used laptop last year that has been running very slow. She asked me to fix it and I found out she's running Windows 7 on an old HP pavilion dv4250us with only 512 MB of ram. Obviously it needs more memory to run Windows 7 smoothly. I'm not sure if it's worth trying to find memory for this old laptop or going back to Windows XP. She can't afford anything too expensive (otherwise she'd just get a new laptop).

I found this: http://www.memorystock.com/memory/He...ndv4250us.html
which looks pretty reasonable. I'm guessing 2 1 GB sticks will do the trick.

I'm not really sure how to change the memory in this laptop, but I managed to snap a picture of the memory after I opened it up and was hoping one of you guys can give me some tips and let me know if it's worth the effort.

The hard drive is shown at Page 5-7.  The hard drive type is EIDE aka PATA. This is "legacy" (obsolete) hardware and larger sized PATA drives are getting hard to find. There is no size constraint imposed by the BIOS or hardware, but the market may not supply you with anything bigger than about 320 gigs and it is going to be expensive to find a new one. The biggest I ever saw was a 500 gig but I have not seen one of those in years. You want to try to find a 5400 rpm or 7200 rpm model although 7200s are extermely hard to locate. 4200 rpm models are just too slow to use.  Here is a 320 gig on eBay for about $100: http://www.ebay.com/itm/WD-Western-Digital-320GB-2-5-IDE-Hard-Drive-HDD-PATA-Notebook-laptop-5400-rp...  If this is "the Answer" please click "Accept as Solution" to help others find it.

Hi Guys,

Got given a HP Pavilion DV4000 from a friend who said it was busted, i've replaced the harddrive and ram and have got it working.
Last night i installed a lite version of XP with sp3 built in. It installed perfectly in under 10 minutes. However i cannot get the wireless to work.
I downloaded and installed the drivers from the HP website and this allowed me to turn the wireless on and i get the little bubble in the bottom left corner saying there are wireless networks in range, however if i click the balloon and it searches for wireless it cannot find any, even though the router is right next to it.

After about a hour of playing around trying to get it working, i downloaded another driver pack from the HP website and this included a wireless application (i think it was HP Wireless assistant, but i can confirm that later today). With the application running i can find wireless connections, but the actual wiress adapter still cannot find any.
When using the software to connect to the wireless it allows me to enter the wpa key and the windows connection says its a bridge network but it never makes it passed authencation.
Obviously the drivers are still wrong.

Can anyone point me in the right direction?

Cheers

Nick

Some wireless configuration application disables the windows built-in wireless configuration manager so as not to cause any conflicts. Using the HP wireless assistant you can successfully connect to the network? Windows built-in cant?

One day while looking at mail, it froze again, so I got a little annoyed and tapped it, and it decided to respond. Now everytime it freezes I have to hit it like a 30 year old tube tv to get it to respond. I would like to know if there is a permanent fix for this masochist laptop.

Hi, have a bit of a problem and would appreciate some (or alot) of help.

I have an HP Pavilion dv4000 series, DV4388EA to be exact, where my CPU seems to be seriously overheating, while playing games that don't really require that much processor speed.

Now i noticed that my current cpu-fan works quite at a slow RPM rate, and i'd like to speed it up, as this, i think, would definitely solve the overheating problem. The problem is that i tried various software programs like FanSpeed, NHC and the like, and NONE of them can detect my fans, because both tell me that my ACPI is not configured. They can detect the temperatures and stuff like that, but can't access or detect fans.

My idle CPU temperature is anywhere from 56-59C, and when playing games it rises rapidly up to 75-82C, where my FSB automatically drops by half, thus slowing down performance and drastically reduces playability of the game. Or sometimes the computer just plainly reboots....


Now, the ONLY reason i can think of why my ACPI is not configured is because i changed the default BIOS that came with the system, with the new and supposedly supported PhoenixBIOS version. Now, when i go and check BIOS, there is absolutely NOTHING i can change. The only interactable things in bios are checking temperature, doing quick scans of my HDD and turning bluetooth/USB on/off... that's it.

So should i restore my previous (if rather old, year 2005) bios and see if that helps, ... Read more

i have a older hp pavilion ze 4200 and a while back my son tried to flash the bios and something was done wrong. now my laptop won't boot up or do anything, it just sits there.
is there a way and how can i flash the bios to be able to use this thing again. another issue is no floppy drive just a dvd/cd rom so I'm guessing it would have to be some kind of bootable cd or dvd. please help
thanks in advance

hello, 2 days ago my laptop was working fine but when i turned it on yesterday it would not load up all it would do is power on a blank screen and the caps lock would flash twice and stop and flash twice again. i looked it up and saw that it was a "bios" problem and to manually fix it was to hold down the windows + b key and turned it on and needles to say it didnt work. i even try to reset it by taking out the battery and holding down the power button to see if that'll help and nope. today i look online to see if theres a way i can fix it but so far all i see is to take it apart to look at the fan or some part near the fan. to be honest i don't feel comfortable taking apart my laptop at all  (i dont mind doing the programing and stuff though) and i was wondering if theres something else i can do to get this problem fixed asap.please help and thank you

I can't figure out how to get into the bios of my HP Pavilion 500-314. When I boot the pc there is no screen that indicates what key I press to boot into bios, it just automatically goes into the HP loading screen.

A:How to boot up into the BIOS of HP Pavilion 500-314

Hi: Normally, you can tap the ESC key at the beginning of the HP splash screen to get a menu of options. From that list, select the F10 boot options menu. If that doesn't work, then see if you can get into the BIOS using the method described at the link below. Watch the video.  All brand PC's with W8.1 have this feature. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XZcYbxOcPV0 If that doesn't work, unfortunately, I don't have any other suggestions to offer.

I downloaded the new BIOS from the HP support page for the 569, it's BIOS A0.07 Rev A from 2016-10-06.  I currently have BIOS ver 80.06 from 2015-04-01.  I tried to install from the UEFI BIOS firmware upgrade menu and it says "BIOS image did not pass validation".  I also tried to install from within Windows 10 and the option to upgrade is greyed out and below its says BIOS is not compatitble with my system.  Should this BIOS upgrade be on the 569 support page?
