Q: dv5000 pavilion

I have a problem. I have a HP Pavilion dv5000 laptop computer which had original windows XP installed. I bought an upgrade to Windows 7 pro on the internet and the program is working fine except that I can not get the laptop monitor to show anything. I attached another monitor to the computer and it shows everything normally. I have tried to change the drivers to get back to the original with no success. The audio would not work in Windows 7 so I downloaded a windows XP audio program and now that works. I want to do the same thing for the monitor/graphics software but can not do it yet. Does anyone have a solution? Source for the drivers? I have tried all of the standard things such as restore etc.

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.)

Hi All,

I recently got a 2nd hand Pavilion. All was working fine untill i tried to format and reinstall windows XP. The first time i did it, i managed to delete the partitions and start a format. All of a sudden the laptop just powered down. Now whenever I boot from the windows CD it starts loading and when it gets to the part where "Setup is starting windows" and you press Enter to start the installation, it keeps powering down.

Anyone got any ideas what the cause could be?

I have a hp pavilion DV5000, I had the hard drive crash. I got a new hard drive same manufactuer as the original it is just larger. I can't get the computer to recognize the new hard drive that I just installed. Please Help

A:HP Pavilion DV5000

Go to the website of the hard drive manufacturer, and download their drive setup software. Most drive manufacturers, except Toshiba, have setup software.
Otherwise, you benefit from using a full Windows disc rather than the recovery disk that came with the HP Pavilion... though it is do-able.
OEM drives you buy without the box and setup disk just take a little more experience because it needs a low level format or a manufacturer setup.
The download from the drive manufacturer's web site also comes with instructions on what to do.
Then of course the original hard drive crash may have been some other problem to begin with.

So let s start this by saying I m not computer illiterate A few days ago I was having a problem with the fan not rotating properly and thus not giving as much heat relief as needed so I took the damn thing apart amp reset the fan cleaned it all out etc The fan works fine now however I think before I was able to fix the fan something else happened that is out of my control Here s the problem Computer works fine for everyday activities ie internet aim word etc When I try to watch a movie or play a game or anything that requires any sort of graphics the entire computer just shuts Hp pavilion dv5000 off Now I m really not entirely sure as to why it would do this there s no forewarning no graphics errors that would indicate the video card is malfunctioning or anything like that but I thought it might be the video card s battery I m gonna replace the battery anyways because it couldn t hurt but any other solutions would be greatly appreciated I m not Hp pavilion dv5000 ready for this laptop to die nbsp

thus, you something missed when you was cleaning your cooling system. check the heatsink carefully again, and check the air temperature which blow out from laptop. if it hot, then problem is in some other place, if it's not hot, then check again cooling system.

Yes, that is correct, and you can update the BIOS if you are running XP. As long as you flash the BIOS with the XP OS, you should be OK, but I cannot guarantee it 100%. I don't dual boot any of my PC's.

your hdd may be broken. if you need information from this hdd, i recommend you to put it in service-centre,which can restore info's from hard drives.
another reason: if you can't boot from DVD drive - the southbridge chip may also been broken. in this case - only the MB repairing or replacing can solve the problem.

Here is a pic of the display on my HP DV5000 laptop.  Hooked up to an external monitor it works fine.  I've seen posts that say stuff like inverters, motherboards, etc. go bad.  Any idea what to look for on this one?  thanks. 

A:HP Pavilion DV5000 Display Problem

Have you found out what the problem with your system is?  I have an HP Pavilion DV5000 doing the EXACT same thing, but since the hard drive went out, I can't reinstall Windows XP on it because I can only see the top 1/3 of the screen.  See, even with an external monitor, this system won't recognize the monitor until it's in full windows mode.  Installing windows on this thing would be like flying blind.  Very frustrating.  If only I could get xp reinstalled on it, I do believe using an external monitor also.  Unless I can find a way, this laptop is finished.

Ok when i pop in the xp disk, it loads fine and boots to the hard disk screen ,but no hard disks can be found. I can boot to the drive easily but hp loaded this machine with so much crap that its insane to fix it now.

If you are going to do this, Please back up all your files that you want to keep.

You might want to start your laptop up from cd. and Windows Setup should see all the Hard Drives/Disks on you laptop there will only be one on you laptop but it could be partitioned.

Any more help just ask,

A:My HP dv5000 Pavilion Notebook is failing to recognize the internal CD-ROM drive.

If Device Manager doesn't even show the drive there is a good chance that it has died. You can look in BIOS. In a Phoenix BIOS where you usually want to look is under Main. You should see your HD and maybe the CD drive. Settings should be on auto. If the CD drive isn't there it probably needs replacing. With a laptop you could take the drive out and put it back in to make sure you have a good connection.

I was given a slightly beat HP laptop when one of my customers upgraded. The video chipset still works (i.e. works fine when attaching an external display) but the screen itself is acting up. When the computer is powered up, the backlight turns on but there is just a single vertical line of colored pixels. I know all of the pixels work because if I tap the side of the screen they will display normally at any given time, but then the picture seems to get distorted or slowly burns out. So I'm thinking the inverter is junk, which is an easy enough fix... but I wanted to ask someone who has a bit more experience with this sort of thing. Any ideas?

I'm having trouble with my hp pavilion dv5000. It started about a month ago and i should have tried to repair it sooner. To begin with the problem was just loud clicking noise, perhaps the fan. Soon after it had trouble waking from standby and finally while attempting to turn it on the power LED would turn on but after a few seconds the screen wouldn't light up and the power LED light would begin to flash.
It had been working still however if you tried to startup a few times, with no further problems. However now it won't seem to get past the Flashing LED no matter how many times i try.
I'd be really greatful for any ideas.

A:will a HP Pavilion 15-n034sa motherboard fit into a HP Pavilion 15-n083sa ?

Actually that's a hard question, generally its not possible to install another motherboard, sometimes it is. In this case one is an AMD platform and the other is an Intel platform, there could be tons of differences in mounting holes, physical design, clearance, connectors, heat dissipation requirements, cooling systems, etc. Laptops are not like desktops that use more standardized designs.

Hiya morgansssss,

Right mate do you have all the Quickplay software. If so all you need to do is goto Start, Computer, Devices, Hardware. At the top of the page you will see System Devices. Click it.

You will then see a window just like XP. Hit the hardware tab then scroll down to the USB line.

Once there you should see "USB composite device". Right click on it and choose Enable.
There will be a pause as the device is enabled.

You will then need to scroll up a little and find "imaging devices". Right click on "HP Webcam" and enable it.

That should sort it out. If not let us know.... Hope that helps. Peace

hey, i've had a hp detachable pavilion x2 for a week or so, it came with 8.1 on it and i wasn't going to upgrade to 10 but thought sod it and upgraded earlier and now my mouse touchpad randomly stops working, the mouse pointer disappears and the keybooard stops working, i have to use an on screen keyboard and use the touch screen to get around

it says it is a ELAN touchpad, i've spent over an hour now googling this issue. all signs are pointing to it being a driver issue after a windows 10 upgrade yet i haven't seen an actual fix anywhere. can anyone point me to a link of the driver that i need please before i throw this thing into the street

elan say to contact manufacturer yet HP have nothing on their website unless i have completely missed something obvious. please help

A:HP Pavilion x2

If you go to the linked HP page and enter your product number, you should be able to find the HP drivers for your touchpad:

If there are no Win10 drivers, then you should not have upgraded to Win10, because not every HP machine running Win8.1 is upgradeable to Win10 without problems. You could have checked the compatibility on the HP site prior to the upgrade.

I was having some issues with my laptop being slow and randomly shutting down applications that were open. I scanned for viruses thinking that could be the cause, but none were found. I then decided to just do a total reset and erase literally everything on there. The reset got to around 62% and then it said it failed. Now my laptop will not completely turn on. It just goes to a black screen with the HP logo and then back to a black screen. Every once in a while an error screen pops up with a message saying something like CMOS checksum error. I have tried resetting it with the power button but it haven't worked. Does anyone know how to fix this? It's only a couple months old and I really don't want to buy a new one!

HP Pavilion g7 right speaker is non-functional. The issue occurred after unit was dropped. I am absolutely certain it is not driver, software or balance settings etc etc etc... Is it possible that the connection was jarred loose somehow? Both channels work through headphones.

Could be the connection, or something broke like the actual speaker, one of the wires, or the circuit board/adapter/plug for the speaker.

You will need to open it up and a look, no other way around that.

It sounds like something went wrong during the Windows re-installation. Since it sounds like you have installation media and this is a fresh install anyway, the first thing I would do is try installing again from the Installation DVD.

My wife's HP Pavilion has hit the bunk, or so it seems.

It's a four year old laptop, which has been suffering from serious spyware problems for a while. Before it quit, I ran Panda active scan on it, and it detected 200+ malware infections. When I tried cleaning out Temp. Internet files, cookies, etc., IE would freeze and not respond.

Then - the mouse quit on logon. So, I thought, I've had it, time to reformat and reinstall manufacturer software. Which I did, only to find out that on boot-up mouse and keyboard both refused to respond. Not good.

Ran the diagnostic utility, which said something about RAM being set wrong, and then point out some non-specific "board problem".

Does anyone have any idea what this is about, before I reach for my biggest sledge hammer and have some quality time in my backyard with this piece of junk? :suspiciou

Hi, The error 'Primary (internal) Battery (601)' does indicate that your notebooks main battery ( not the cmos battery as the error tends to suggest ) is showing signs of wear and you may want to consider replacing it - the 601 error typically occurs when the storage capacity has fallen below 25% of its original value. Further information on this can be found on the following HP document. This is a warranty item, so if your notebook is still covered, contact HP and arrange to have it replaced - If needed, you can check your warranty status Here. If you live in the US, contact HP Here. If you are in another part of the world, start Here. Regards, DP-K

Good Afternoon,
Would like to pose this question and see if any of the group can assist me.

I currently image our new CPU's with a secure image of Windows XP Sp2. Our computers (desktop and laptops) mainly consist of Dell's and images work fine thanks to our information management staff. However, our director has an HP Pavilion dv8000 notebook that I cant get an image to take on it. It just goes into a cycle of choosing safemode or boot normal.

The weird thing is, I have an option at the start of the image to choose "network" or non-network (stand alone) and the stand alone image works fine.

Are they any settings on this HP that I need to turn off or on for the network image to work?

Thanks in advance

>  A component of the operating system has expired.  With error code 0xc0000605  ... A did a Google-search on that code.  One posting suggested that the date/time in the computer's "BIOS SETUP" was wrong, and needed to be corrected.Reboot, and enter "BIOS SETUP", and check. Another posting suggested that your computer is running a "Windows 10 Preview" version, rather than the "official" release.  Is that correct?

My HP Pavilion automatically intalled the HP 15 Pavilion Windows update but it stopped my keyboard working Oddly it was possible to enter my PIN but then the keyboard no longer worked HP Pavilion 15 after the home screen appeared Using a HP Pavilion 15 USB keyboard gave the same result nbsp nbsp I removed the update and the HP Pavilion 15 keyboard worked again but I assume if I let the update install again the same problem will happen nbsp I have used the HP Supprt Assistant and installed all the updates but the BIOS update will not go away It looks like the BIOS update is not supported for this model nbsp The currnt BIOS is F The latest is F nbsp I tried to make a USB flash drive after identifying my System ID as but when selecting the BIOS file to install bin is not listed The only ones available are D bin bin A bin bin and bin nbsp My question is where can I get the BIOS update file to match my Syetm Board ID and will updating the BIOS enable me to run the Windows update

I am trying to reinstall XP and all of the sites I've visited regarding this (Including HP) say, "From the Windows XP desktop, click Start, All Programs and then HP Tools.
I do not have that on my menu. The only thing regarding HP is the HP Share to web and Hewlett-Packard officejet software.
Where do I find HP PC tools so that I might perform HP PC SYSTEM RECOVERY ?
I've tried doing a SYSTEM RESTORE from the SYSTEM TOOLS menu and it goes through the process and then restarts only to say that it failed. Any advise would be refreshing!

I was about to do a restore on my computer today. I restarted my computer and hit the F10 key like always, but nothing happens, the computer just restarts. I tried it repeatedly with the same result. I went back to my computer and seen that the restore partition is still there can anyone tell me why I cannot get my restore working? Is there a way around this I mean is there another way to activate my restore?
