HP Pavilon DV6000 & Win7

Q: HP Pavilon DV6000 & Win7

Hi there, I am having problems trying to make a clean install of Windows 7 on my HP DV6000. I have rpeviously formatted and installed operating systems on many computers, but this one is giving me to fight!

The main problem is that the instalation never continues from the "Windows is loading files" at the start of the CD booting!

Does HP or this pavilon have any issues?

help will be appreciated!

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 (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: HP Pavilon DV6000 & Win7

Make your HP REcovery Disks or a backup image so you have a path back to factory condition. You can also extract apps from the HP REcovery disks using this method:

Next make sure you have the latest BIOS version update from HP Support Downloads webpage for your model, which is safest installed from Windows.

CHeck also in the BIOS for SATA controller setting: try AHCI first, then IDE if necessary.

Now wipe the HD to get the cleanest possible slate: SSD / HDD : Optimize for Windows Reinstallation

Clean Install Windows 7

If install fails again, remove all but 2gb of RAM and test your ram with memtest for 5-6 passes.

Then test your HD using maker's full diag/repair CD scan:

Where did you get Win7? DId you burn it yourself?

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..

Hi @guru99! I'm sorry to say that, but this error may indicate that your HDD is failing and needs to be replaced. If your notebook is still in warranty you can contact the support, but in case you're out of warranty and would like a guide on replacing the hard drive yourself I would be able to recommend you some replacement. Hope this helps and best of luck!

I have Pavilon dm4 and i was upgraded my operation system (windows 7) to windows 10 . after 2 months i need to recover my old operating system windows 7 but i dont have recovery of my labtop so could you please provide me a recovery link of my labtop to download it and install itKing regards 

A:pavilon dm4 recovery

Baselo Hello;Allow me to welcome you to the HP forums!What will work is restoring your machine to its original factory condition using HP Recovery Media.This is a set of DVDs and a CD, or USB stick, that will erase the hard drive (removing all data, settings, and applications, reinstall the original OS, drivers, and some HP Utilities. In some cases, you may be able to order a USB stick instead of disks.  You have to order these from HP; they can not be downloaded.You can look online for Recovery Media starting with the linked paged: there, input your Product name or number. On your Software and Drivers Download page, select your Operating System and and Version. Click "Update".  If HP Recovery Media is available for your machine, down near the bottom of the page, you will see an entry for Order Recovery Media-CD/DVD/USB. Click the "+" symbol to expand that entry and click on Order Media for details.Or, if you prefer, you can do the same by contacting HP Customer Service:If you live in the US or Canada, contact information is on this page: you live elsewhere, contact information is on this page: After you get through, stay on the line until you are finally able to talk to some one -- it can take a while!---------------------------------------However, HP Customer Support is generally not available on the weekends, so you might have to wait until Monday to contact them.---------------------------------------If HP no longer provides Recovery Media for your model, a couple of other sites you can check are:  and Luck

  i have a Pavilion and when watching videos or listening to music the volume will go away or turn way down but the actual volume settings do not change just the volume its self.  I have tried reinstalling the drivers and ran all the test.  I have also shut off my mic and told it to do nothing in the auto volume settings yet it still randomly decides to turn its self down.  I have spend hours with tech support doing the same things over and over and even rebooted my entire system.  I have only had this HP for a month.  never had a problem in 7 years with my old hp and this one is about to go in the trash.

Hello - I would be extremely grateful if someone coudl hep me, please!! I haven't used this particular laptop for years, but I desperately need to get back on it to retrieve some files. The laptop seems to work fine, but when I've turned it on a black screen appears with Enter Password in blue - it doesn't look like the normal Windows page that I can remember. It looks as though it's in some sort of safe mode or something. I don't know what this password is.

A:Upgrade Graphic Card on hp pavilon 15-ab291sa

robcioslaw Sorry to say this, but you're operating under a misunderstanding, as laptops to do not have customer-replaceable graphics "cards". Instead, they have a graphics processor (GPU) that is soldered to the system board which also contain the CPU chip. While these are sometimes replaceable, that involves sending the PC to an HP Service Center and paying a LOT of money to have it disassembled, have the system board replaced, and have it reassembled -- typically considerably more money than simply buying a more powerful laptop. So basically, it is not practical to upgrade the graphics on a laptop. Good Luck========================================================================I am a volunteer and I do not work for, nor do I represent, HP.---------------------------------------------------------------If my posts helped you, please click the Thumbs-Up symbol on my post to say thanks.If my posts solved your problem please click "Accept As Solution".========================================================================

NOTE: Please provide the following information for a more detailed response:

While waiting for a reply:

I suggest starting all troubleshooting with the following diagnostic tests (located at this link: Hardware Diagnostics ). They'll save you a lot of time and heartache if there is a hardware failure, and you'll have the disks on hand in case you need them in the future:


H/W Diagnostics:
Please start by running these bootable hardware diagnostics:
Memory Diagnostics (read the details at the link)
Hard Drive Diagnostics (read the details at the link) - Test ALL of the hard drives.

Also, please run one of these free, independent online malware scans to ensure that your current protection hasn't been compromised: Free Online AntiMalware Resources (read the details at the link)
There are also free, bootable antivirus disks at this link: Free Online AntiMalware Resources - Bootable Disks

The BSOD is a STOP 0x124.
This is most likely a hardware error - which includes:
- overclocking
- compatibility issues
- low-level driver problems
- malware

Daemon Tools (and Alcohol % software) are known to cause BSOD's on Win7 systems due to the sptd.sys driver.
Please uninstall the program, then use the following free tool to ensure that the troublesome sptd.sys driver is removed from your system (pick the 32 or 64 bit system depending on your system's configuration): DuplexSecure - FAQ

I believe that you have Comodo installed on your system. Try uninstalling it to see if that helps.

AMD OverDrive (AODDriver2.sys) is either a stand-alone application, or a component of the AMD VISION Engine Control Center. This driver is known to cause BSOD's on some Win7 systems.


Please uninstall all ATI stuff from Control Panel...Programs...Uninstall a program
Then, download and install a fresh copy of the ATI drivers from Global Provider of Innovative Graphics, Processors and Media Solutions | AMD
Then use the ATI uninstall manager to uninstall the Catalyst Control Center (CCC).

If the device (AODDriver or AODDriver4.01) remains a problem in perfmon /report, open Device Manager, select the "View" item.
Then select "Show hidden devices" and scroll down to the Non-Plug and Play Drivers section.
Locate the AODDriver entry, right click on it and select "Uninstall". Reboot for changes to take affect.

If overclocking, please stop. Remove the overclock and return the system to stock/standard values while we're troubleshooting. Once the system is stable again, feel free to resume the overclocking.

Further info on BSOD error messages available at:

The following info is just FYI, I've already addressed the issues that I saw in the above paragraphs:
- Create a System Restore Point prior to doing any of this. DO NOT mess with the drivers themselves - leave the Windows\System32\drivers directory alone unless we specifically direct you to it!
- Please either update the older drivers from the device manufacturer's website - or uninstall them from your system. Reference links are included below.
- DO NOT use Windows Update or the Update Drivers function of Device Manager.
- Please feel free to post back about any drivers that you are having difficulty locating.
- Windows Update exceptions may be noted below for Windows drivers.

I ordered the recovery Disks from HP but when I went to recover the machine, it sort of reads the cd and then I get the HP logo and the circle just spins and spins.

Hi, The 24 character error id does confirm a failure of the short Disk Self Test and would indicate that the Hard Drive is failing and needs to be replaced.  This is also consistent with the issues you describe. If you would like a guide on replacing the Hard Drive yourself, please let me know. Regards, DP-K

I've got a dv6000 and it simply will not power on. Its almost like the on button is broken. I plug in the charger and the little blue ring lights up. I have reset the BIOS(by unplugging the battery) but it refuses to respond.

What should i do?

Try removing the battery and plugging in the power supply only, if that doesn't work remove the batter and unplug the power supply, press the power button then leave the computer over night. Plug it in the next day and see if it works.
Sounds like voodoo but I have tried this on a few laptops and it worked. If none of these tips work then the power supply is probably bad. Either get it tested or get a new one. Worst case scenario, if the new power supply doesn't work then the motherboard is faulty.

Well I use my laptop as a gaming device and for other stuff like homework and surfing the web fast and such. We have a desktop but are getting into laptops so we have more space in the rooms.

My current specs are:

Operating System: Windows Vista Home Premium (6.0, Build 6000)
System Manufacturer: HP
System Mode: HP Pavilion dv6000
Processor: AMD Turion(tm) 64 X2 Mobile Technology TL-56 (2CPUs), ~1.8GHz
Memory:958MB Ram

I am wondering if it is possible to add a new processor in this laptop, what size does it need to be and such.

I am also wondering how much ram can the new processor hold if i can replace mines with around 2.33GHz- 2.8 GHz

Also what size is the hard drive of laptops and what is the max being made now?

A:What is the max power I can do with dv6000

Your laptop is not Pavilion dv6000. Dv6000 is a huge seriesof different models. See the sticker on the bootom for the exact model number.

Replacing a CPU in a laptop is tricky and expensive. Not worth the effort.

The processor has got nothing to do with maximum supported memory. Increasing the RAM size to 2GB or more will most certainly give you an instant speed boost, especially with Windows Vista. (Another option would be to leave the RAM at 1GB and use Windows XP )

I believe the largest standard-sized laptop hard drives are 320GB. Again, are you sure that you need to upgrade? You could just get an external USB hard drive for storage.

I am trying to diagnose and possibly fix why a HP DV6000 Laptop is not powering on. It is 2 years old and has Windows Vista OS. You press the start button, you see all the blue lights come on (top pf keyboard) and 1 sec later it shuts down. No writing comes up on the screen. I have tried to do a hard reset with Battery and Power Chord disconnected. Tried with battery out and just power adapter plugged, but nothing works. My next step is to find a simliar HP Laptop and try a new Power Adapter and Battery. I hold out no hope for this machine after reading how many of these laptops have the same power failure. My guess is the motherboard has failed, but there could be some other reason. Any guesses or advice on what to try. Thanks.

When you mouseover the icons in the tray, the status is always Speed 100.0 Mbps and Status: Connected. I don't understand how two computers can connect to a wireless router and my HP Pavilion can't. I have unplugged the modem and router and restarted them both, but to no avail. Any help would be appreciated.

First you need to identify the make and model of the HDD, such as WD, Seagate etc., Log into the vendor site and download the proper HDD diagnose tool and follow the instructions to scan each segment of your broken HDD and hope you can fix from this tool too.

I have an HP DV CTO laptop with an AMD processor It came preinstalled with Vista Vista does not suit my needs HP Laptop on an DV6000 XP because it sucks In any case I decided to wipe it and install XP When I tried to install XP the installation kept crashing at XP on an HP DV6000 Laptop various points in the install Sometimes it would crash right away other times it would get all the way to the point where it had copied the files and was beginning the actual installation And when it quot crashes quot what it does is it powers off the computer I did a little research and determined that the problem was likely that I had an SATA drive installed and XP didn t recognize it well enough to complete the install If I had the Intel version of this notebook there is apparenlty an option to disable SATA in the BIOS but on AMD machines there is no such option So I was advised to use quot F quot during the install of XP to install a third party driver I downloaded the XP driver for the SATA drive and tried to install However I quickly learned that when installing XP the only way to install a thrid party driver is with a floppy drive which the computer doesn t have Searching for a workaround I found several programs that claimed to be able to integrate my new chipset drivers with the XP install but none of them worked I still had the same problem - the XP installation would simply shut the computer down at various points in the install Could it really be impossible to install XP on this computer HP has drivers for XP on its website that I can download so the computer must have come with XP installed as an option I just can t figure out how to install it Anyone have any ideas

He was on vista before, and obviously wanted to "downgrade". I went onto the website to download a ethernet driver and I downloaded the NVIDIA nForce Chipset Driver and Network Controller, he says when he opens it it shows the nvidia logo says its preparing files, then just closes. If anyone has ideas on how I can help him please tell me.

Yes this np you will be able to find your drivers for DV6000 on this page -

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.

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 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.

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.

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.

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.

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:

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:
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?

Try connecting and external monitor. If the lines also appear on the external monitor, the "card" is the cause. If the video is normal on the external, it is the internal 17" LCD panel or its associated cables/wireing that are the cause of the lines

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

My HP Pavillion Laptop has stopped booting. I only get the blue powerlights to flash briefly once. I have tried removing the battery, disconnecting the bios battery - all to no avail.

Following hp's troubleshooting guides, this points to a cpu failure - is it worth replacing the CPU (AMD) - or does the whole motherboard need replacing.

A:HP Pavillion DV6000 - Not Booting

There have been huge issues with that series of HP laptops... I suggest you call HP and discuss the problem. HP has recently admitted some of these problems and has accommodated some owners with repairs, even out of warranty repairs.

It is my understanding that it is a motherboard problem, and the CPU is fine... but my info is all second hand... so call HP and be persistent.

Hi I currently have an HP DV that will not start up When I press the power button all HP Issues DV6000 Loading the LED lights come on the fan kicks on and the computer seems to be cycling up However after about a minute of a completely blank screen nothing ever shows up the computer will shut off a sharp one beep will sound and then the computer attempts to cycle back on The process has continued indefinitely I have tried many solutions that I have read online such as unplugging the computer holding down the power button to remove any static build up and then plugging it back in This has never worked The only way I can get my computer to stay on is by pressing escape during its start up phase and the result is a computer that stays on but nothing ever comes up on the screen I have no idea what to do so if anyone can help me it would be greatly appreciated I believe the operating system is Windows XP bit if that helps at all I am out of options right now and need to know if I need a new computer for school Thank you in advance nbsp

A:HP DV6000 Loading Issues

Many HP DV6000 and DV9000, plus many others had similar failures. These laptops were very poorly built and worst yet had a flaw with the nVidia chipset that they had. If your DV6000 has an AMD processor and an nVidia chipset its likely one of the affected models. Not worth fixing if its the mainboard.

My pavilion laptop has recently been unable to charge when im on it. The battery has a short life (admittedly my fault), so I have to stop and wait for it to charge every hour or so.

Ok so I hadn't used my hp dv6000 entertainment pc since 06' because of a broken LCD that I've replaced it... It booted up normally at first but after a couple of days, it started taking hours to boot! I'm on the second consecutive day of not being able to even get to the windows screen! What can my prob be? I've scanned my notebook for malware before this happened and I have no infections! All my notebook does is seem like it's about to boot up but then turns back off and on automatically while set in a black screen... Like I said, I can't even get to the hp intro logo at times....hours...days? This is rediculous! Please any help would be greatly appreciated.....Oh and I'm running windows vista...

Was updating the software on my HP Pavillion dv6000 limited use laptop and found that there was a BIOS update available for it.  Since the current BIOS version on the laptop was F.22 and HP had BIOS version F.5A available since October 2014, I decided to download and update.  The BIOS update utility ran to completion without errors, starting at block 16 traversing backwards to block 1.  Once, complete it justdown the laptop.  But when I powered up the laptop, all lights illumination, the screen stays dark, no disk activity and no more laptop. Just a big paper weight now.  Any one have any Idea on how to revert the BIOS back, or just I just consider that I just lost a good working laptop?

I got a free HP dv6000 from my uncle, but it has a lot of problems.

1. The monitor doesn't work (works when hooked up to an external)
2. The keyboard doesn't work (works when hooked up to an external)
3. Mouse doesn't work (works when hooked up to external)
4. The system WILL NOT boot to any type of Windows/Ubuntu CD, or load CDs at all for that matter (I can hear it spinning though)
5. The system WILL NOT boot to windows, it will try and then say "Operating system not found"
6. Sometimes the system won't boot at all and will beep 3 times.
7. The system makes horrendously loud scratching/clicking sounds

What in the world is wrong with this laptop?

A:Got a free HP dv6000, but it has multiple issues

I've edited your thread for language, please keep the forums rules in mind when posting.

Does this model have an AMD processor? If so its trash. HP DV2000, DV6000, and DV9000 models with AMD processors experienced massive motherboard failures and other component failures. Pretty much everything broke on those units.

My dv 6000 HP windows vista is complining of operating system not found, and sometimes it will boot up to windows after several on and off.

A:HP dv6000, operating system not found


Can we have a few more details on this please?

It may simply be that you require a fresh install of your OS this may solve any issues that you have on this.

Does it say NTFS not found or somthing simila? if it does it sounds like that there may be a fault on the boot disk which is normally resolved by a fresh install. however if you have installed a new software recently on the laptop i would recommend un-installing the software just incase this is causing problems.

Hope this helps

I have a HP Pavilion dv6238ea and it had xp on it and the webcam driver i downloaded from worked fine. Then i formatted it and installed windows 7 in it.
Windows 7 detected the webcam and installed the driver. The webcam shows as ''HP Webcam 1000" and the manufacturer is "Micro Vision" and also the driver is provided by 'Micro Vision'. But it doesn't work. It only shows a black screen.

I downloaded the vista driver from for my laptop(HP Webcam Driver with Firmware Upgrade for Microsoft Windows Vista HP Pavilion dv6238ea Notebook PC - HP Customer Care (United States - English)) but it is not able to install. It gives an error.

There is no available driver for windows 7 for this laptop (or any dv6000 series i think) on

Can anyone help in solving this?

Hi nab,
Did you install 32 bit or 64 bit W7?
can you please click start - right click computer - manage - device manager. It will either be listed as an unknown device or under the imaging devices heading. Right click on any unkown devices or the webcam, click properties, details tab, hardware ID. copy and paste back the two lines here.

My child has a HP Pavilion dv6000 32 bit running Vista.

I don't know what happened but the audio,video and most importantly all Internet/Network drivers are missing. Since there was a lapse in protection it could be a virus OR a classmate deleted thmm???

I have downloaded all drivers on the HP website but still not working or I get :"Only for Vista"???

I loaded the backup/recovery/driver CD but again - still not working(Internet).

Any HELP would be appreciated.

A:HP Pavilion dv6000 Sound Problem

Go into SOUND option in control panel and check the playback devices. Even if you uninstall the driver, it will somtiems remain disbaled in that menu. If you don't even see a playback device in there, r-click on the background and tell it to "show hidden device". If the speakers are enabled, and the levels are turned up in that menu also, and it still doesn't work, then you probably have dead speakers.

The hard disk crashed and I have been unable to reinstall Vista Home Premium with org. and recovery disks on new Hard Disk. Would like to reformat and install Win XP on it. Can't seem to figure out how to do it.

I get the "no operating system found" error. The HD is unformatted as it is new.

I've been all over the HP site and followed the endless loops for information, to no avail.

Any help will be greatly appreciated (sp).

A:Replaced HD and want to install different OS on HP Pavilion dv6000

You have to have a valid Windws XP install disk... HP install disks detect the hard drive, and if they are not designed specifically for that drive, they wimply will not work. You may have to buy a copy of Windows XP, then boot to it...
You will need drivers, so check to see if the HP website offers drivers for that system configuration. If not, you have to be experienced enough to locate and download them yourself.

But what you propose is very possible... just go to the HP site for your HP model, and look for what operating systems are supported.
