HP Pavilion dv2000/dv6000/dv9000 and Compaq Presario V3000/V6000

I receive three to four phone calls a day from people who have questions about various HP laptops. The ones I listed above have known issues where the video will not display. Other issues include wireless not working or acting strange. Most of these laptops have serious issues that are caused by manufacturing defects. The link where you can read about the specific details is here http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c01087277&lc=en&cc=us


Many of the issues are due to over-heating. For example, a laptop used where excessive pet hair, or dust gets into the cooling ports and causes the laptop to run hot. In turn, the system gets hot and causes issues with the new solder used to secure components.

The other part is a simple design flaw. These laptops have a single heat-sink that takes care of heat relief for the processor and video card. The fan is under sized and in the end you have problems.  What to do if you have one of these laptops and want to make the best of it?

  • Backup frequently – in case your laptop won’t start, you will still save your data
  • Air Duster – keep the laptop clean, this will hopefully stop heat damage
  • Your Bed – do not sit your laptop on your bed. Where there is a blanket; there is heat and heat kills
  • Turn off – keep your computer off when your not using it. This will help prevent wear

The ideas above are simple suggestions to help in your particular situation. They may or may not work depending on how bad of condition the computer is in. In fact, some of the ideas may not do anything at all. If you do have issues with your HP, be sure to seek HP for remedy first. TechRx, Inc. can help you recover data too.
