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.)

All laptops suffer from heating more than desktops do. HP laptops are no better or worse than other laptops concerning heat. If you are concerned, go out and buy one of those cooling platforms for laptops. If you continue to get memory errors, check your memory using Memtest86. Let it run for 7 or more passes

Any money its a sata hard drive. If thats the case then you will need a sata driver in order for windows setup to see the drive.

Hey, everyone. About a year ago I had a HP Pavilion dv2000, but it went into what I call a coma. When you turn it on, the Quick play buttons light up, all the lights light up, as in if it were in sleep/hibernation. One issue, the screen doesn't turn light up. Right now I'm on my new laptop, the HP Pavilion dv4, which crashed for some reason yesterday and lost all my files. But no worries about the crash I just need to know how to fix my dv2000. Here is a picture of what it looks like turned on.

A:HP Pavilion dv2000 issues

I would want to just say bad backlight, which would be very difficult to replace, but in reviewing this person's response it sure seems to ring true, and there is a heat issue with the display chipset. HP acknowledges here some display problems, but most of the solutions there are HP repairs for systems still under warranty. Unless you have the skill levels to attempt the repairs on the chipset solder yourself this really is one for a repair shop to address.

The nVidia chips found in that series laptop are known to found problem, even some replacements could experience the same problem.

It's a 4 year old laptop, possibly 6 from original release and they are generally poor quality and low spec'ed laptops so I don't think it's worth putting in much money into it at all.

I somewhat recently purchased the above-mentioned laptop (several months ago). It has been great, running quickly, smoothly. But, recently, out-of-the-blue, it has begun to freeze.

A few days ago, it started to freeze for about 2 seconds, then stutter through a second, before freezing for another 2 seconds etc...etc...During these instances of freezing everything would stop, from sound to the cursor.

The problem has been getting progressively worse, and now my laptop will not boot Windows. It will just sit on the loading screen for half an hour.

Before it came to this point, I ran virus/spyware scans and found nothing. I tried a system recovery to a more recent time, but now it has stopped working altogether. Any suggestions?

My HP pavilion dv2000 has been giving problems for a while now.
It works for less than 30 mins on battery.And on AC power,it turns off suddenly while am using it.
Another problem is, i have two users on my laptop which are password protected.Off late, when i turn on my laptop, it is directly logging into the user I last used before turning off.It is not prompting for a password,which it is expected to do.
Please suggest the needful.

A:hp pavilion dv2000 for windows 7 driver

Hi: You can use the Windows Vista drivers for any drivers you need after you install Windows 7. If you can connect to the internet after installing W7 either wired or wirelessly, you should first launch the Windows Update program found in your programs menu. That will find the latest drivers for some of your hardware components. For anything else that Windows Update didn't find you can use the Vista drivers. Here is the link to the dv2000 series support page. You should select your specific model number for the Vista drivers. You may also want to read this handy upgrade guide for your model series. Paul

Welcome to TSG!!!
Go to device manager, click on the network card, select properties, remove.
Immediately reboot the computer and let Windows find and reinstall the card.
This should take care of the problem.
Before you go to the "geek Squad' post back and let us know how this works. If it doesn't there are probably some other things we can suggest and save you the $$$$$

Hey there, i m facing some problem in HP Pavilion DV2000 display. My Vista was working good and suddenly the screen got strange types of lines on it. I upgrade the video drivers but nothing went fine. So last night, I upgrade Windows to 7 and still got that same problem. I want to know whats the problem I cant understand whether its display card problem of screen problem. Please guide.

See the video

A:HP Pavilion DV2000 display problem

It looks like the LCD panel is damaged. It's quite easy to determine: take a screenshot and post it here and we'll see. (Screenshot with Paint)

If the screenshot does not show these lines, it's safe to assume your LCD is damaged because screenshot shows exactly what your GPU is sending to display.

I have an HP pavilion dv2000. When I turn on the computer it boots, shows me the options and everything, but after the windows symbol shows, the screen goes completely black. Everything works properly if I boot it in safemode, which is how I have been using it lately. I've tried the battery trick, as well as resetting my bios settings. The fact that it works in safemode tells me its not a problem with my video card, or monitor connection. I have also run a virus scanner in safemode.... nothing came up. Any other ideas?

A:HELP: HP Pavilion dv2000 Built-in Webcam Problem

Are the drivers specific to Vista 32 bit? I've found that some drivers are cross compatible between Vista and 7 but not all of them. Also if you had a 64-but version of 7 you cannot use 64-bit drivers. Also is this Vista disk from the same manufacturer? If not you can't use it.

As a side note 1.4 gb of ram is not sufficient for Vista. With that little you would have been better off with 7 since it handles memory slightly better. 2 gb is the absolute minimum with either OS though. Without at least 2 gb more than likely your system will be relying on virtual memory which is really slow.

Hi All,

2. The power goes off.
3. On powering on , "Windows Resume" screen comes and I am redirected to login screen and once logged in I can see all my applications - just like hibernation.

This problem has started occuring repeatedly now. Could someone please help? I was following the other thread Vista unexpected shutdown and here are the attachments for the three files - AIDA32, CoreTemp and Process Explorer.

I don't play games. Could someone please tell me the cause of it? Only yesterday I have formatted my entire laptop thinking that might solve the problem only to face the shutdown again unexpectedly 3 times so far

It seems lee all of my USB devices are unknown. I try to update drivers and check their status, but it tells me everything is up to date and working properly. The reason I reset to factory default is because my wireless was not working and comp was slow etc. Now I checked for a wireless driver and its not there! I only have NVIDIA nForce networking controller and 4 unknown devices. I just want to surf tye Web for images and print them out. Please help! Also, I tried to connect my nook via Bluetooth (for image sharing) and it says paired but not connected, check Bluetooth radio. Oh and when I plug any type of USB device the pc doesn't even recognize it.

A:HP pavilion dv2000 restored to factory settings, now I have many unknown devices

Factory Recovery normally includes all the drivers for that particular laptop, except for any third-party devices that were added since it left the factory of course, like a printer or scanner etc. That would explain why certain USB devices don't work now.

You need to download missing drivers for internal components from HP support and install them: HP Support & Drivers | United Kingdom

Note 1: The website above is for the United Kingdom. If that does not apply to you, click United Kingdom at bottom left to open an interactive World map(or click United States if that's what you want).

Note 2: there are 15 different models in the DV2000 series so you'll need to look on the underside of your laptop for the exact model number.

Drivers for any external hardware like printer, scanner etc. will need to be re-installed from the CD that was supplied with that device, or downloaded from that particular device manufacturer's website.

hi jbean05
Looks like you still have vista installed on the drive too... the best way to fix it would be to flatten it completely and reinstall xp. Not 100% sure if this is going to be possible with the BSOD happening all the time. Before you start the recovery with sata anabled do you get the option to repair the current copy of windows installed? Does it ever ask you which operating system you want to start? just a feeler to see if i can get some more information on the problem.

Shutdown the laptop.
Turn it over and remove the battery.
Open the access door that covers the wireless card, reseat the card firmly.
Reassemble and see if that helps.

Another thing to do is in Device Manager, under the properties of the wireless NIC, configure the power properties to disable any power saving functions.

I have an HP dv2000, an i have Ubuntu 9.04 on it. I was using it one day, and shut it down for a bit, came back to use it, and it does literally nothing. it turns on, but nothing appears on the screen, and it never responds to anything. the hard drive is crashed, but i ordered a new one, put it in, and it was the same deal. the disks in the drive will spin up, act like they are loading, and then stop. any advice?

You can either manually put in your model number or let it automatically detect.
From there you can get support for your computer.
since you don't know the exact model DV2000 just select automatically detect but it should be on a sticker on the computer.

I have installed the HP Vista driver and the Synaptic driver trying to get the touchpad to work, as well as scoured this and other sites for advice. The touchpad is jerky and the scrollbar on the side is not functioning.
The only thing I can find that is out of place is that under device manager, there is listed "other device" Unknown device. ?

WLAN CARD: Broadcom Wireless 1390 WLAN Mini-PCI Card

I bought my HP Pavilion dv2000 from Best Buy last October. I don't want to send my computer in to repair because I need it for school work.

Recently, the wireless light on my computer has gone orange, instead of the normal blue showing that the wireless card is active. I was on tech support with HP for hours, installing and reinstalling drivers. I ended up having to wipe everything off my hard-drive (which seems to be HP's solution to everything). Nothing changed.

HP mailed me a new wireless card in the mail. I installed it. The wireless light is still orange.

Is there anything I can do which wouldn't require me to ship my computer out?

Thanks all.

Got a similar problem, my system [HP dv2000] laods up to the windows startup error screen with two options, (a) to perform startup repair (recommended) AND ( to start windows normally. Both options lead to the windows laoding bar scrolling thru then eventually only a blank screen. Waited for more than 2 hours but no change.

I've tried using a recovery cd to repair startup but it also hangs in the same way. What do i do please?

Even before the last part, when you mentioned the couch, I was thinking that it has overheated. It really is best to use laptops somewhere other than laps. Clothing and blankets often block the air vents, and laptops, being packed tightly, need cooling to be very efficient.

It's quite possible that a major component, maybe the CPU, is burned out.

Thank you!

A:Hp DV2000 battery doesn't work! Plz, help me!

Do you leave your battery attached to your laptop when it is plugged into the power supply? If so...DONT!!
It's always best to pull your battery when you are not mobile, since batteries have cells that contain "memory" and can only accept a certain amount of charges, or "hours of charging."

Also you want to allow your battery to FULLY drain before you charge it again. Also, allow it to charge 100% and then either remove the battery or power supply unit.

As far as the battery you have now you may need to obtain a new battery; either through your warranty or purchase of another.
Once a battery is dead, it's usually done.

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.

I have a client with one of these, the fan is howling pretty good, looking at it carefully it seems the PSU is riveted into the case, HP does not list it for sale seperately. Anybody know of a PSU that will fit in here? or should I just toss it and chalk it up to experience?

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!

Hello! so I recived a pop-up message on my screen that told me I was very low on memory/storage. In the settings of my laptop, it says that my laptop is using 19.2 GB of storage for "Preload". What is Preload and why does 19.2 GB's of the 19.5  total GB's of used storage consist of it?

it looks like another friend dropped off a computer that is completely messed up. its a hp pavilion 6640 or somthing like that. my friend claims it has upgraded memory but i know it came with at least 64mb. it came with win 98 on it, then was upgraded to millenium but dragged ****. i tried putting ubuntu 5.10 and 6.10( whatever the newest discs are) but it didnt work, then it made sense when i found out the specs of the machine. so is there a user friendly linux or a way to crack win 98 se? the box dosent have a "key" sticker on it so no 98 se key.

It should run ubuntu. I had a lower spec'd Pavilion with a P2 300 in it that came with 48 megs of ram. I upgraded the ram and had Mandrake 7 running on it fine.

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.

A:hp Pavilion

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.

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!
