Question about HP Pavilion Computers & Internet

2 Answers

HP DV6833us Vista In the middle of starting PhotoShop we had a power failure. Computer just stopped. Turns out battery was totally dead. Now, any boot attempt takes me to a black screen with a movable mouse arrow. No ctrl, alt, delete. No safe mode. No last good setup. I restored to a week ago. Same thing. Can you help?

Sure, does the PC run with the big battery out?
that is step one of over 20 tests. and steps
does the F10 key work or ESC key or F11 key work
power on hammer repeat hit F11 , this takes you to recovery mode.

tell the helper if
bios works
does bios show time and date correctly, if not the CMOS RTC coin cell is dead.

safe mode is F8, its not automatic, takes you using the key.
in bios control +alt+del only reboots you, endlessly,
you windows is dead.
but first is good power, good ac pack no main battery there.
then hit F10 go in to bios first. is BIOS ok,. happen all that.
if yes, the power is mostlikly ok, next is good hdd.
does the BIOS HDD test pass? seen in BIOS>?????
if yes, then F11 recovery mode can work.

for sure. but again, there are 20 causes of bad in the box.
ill not cover all tests.
posted it 100s of times.

SOURCE: Hp pavilion dv9000 wont boot,coloured lines appear no bootscreen

This is caused by burn out of the Nvidia graphics chip on the motherboard. You need a new motherboard. This is due to a design flaw (the subject of a class action against HP in the USA). I have had two motherboards fail on me in this way so far - do not expect any worthwhile support from the HP "support" people they are all in India and can hardly communicate outside of their simple repetative scripts. Its impossible to escape them - I tried communicating with head office but all you get is contact details back to the incomprehensible Indian call centre. I strongly recommend against ever purchasing from HP again.

At this point, your operating system has crashed. Sadly, the recovery will not work at this stage. Your next option is to get all your information transferred to another computer and then install the operating system of your choice. You can contact us 24/7 at 800-595-3564 if you need further assistance.

It is normal, after a C:\ drive format, to lose all your information from that partition, including last known configuration and system restore points. If you weren't able to enter Windows 7 Ultimate do a clean reinstall. Also, immediately after Windows installation, install the latest drivers.
If something else happened, please let me know so I can tell you what to do.

If your saying that the battery is blinking. In my opinion it sounds like it could be a dc jack charging issue. Lets first start with doing a hard reset of your device. Hold down the power button for 30 seconds without the charger plugged in. Then reconnect the charger and try powering the device on. Try to identify if there is a pattern in which the battery LED is blinking. Does it just consistantly flash, Or do you notice it blink three times and then pause. We can try to troubleshoot this further if you have any issues after gathering this information.

sounds like your motherboard malfunctioned. the board was probably starting to go out. thats why it would see the hdd then not.

you sound like youre familiar with computers. you may want to invest in diagnostic cards to troubleshoot problems like this. theyre fairly inexpensive on ebay. basically you insert the card into pci slot and it displays an error code. then you look up the code in a book. works like the obd2 reader for your car.

I am unable to start my HP pavilion dz6700 laptop..it turns on and in a sec it switches off. Battery of laptop is dead and even though i connect to externa power source it doesn't start


Hi,

Unfortunately there's a problem with the motherboard of the laptop, you need to replace it. One of the circuits is grounded or is totally dead to accept and release power for the unit to turn on.

Hope this helps.

HP Black screen error codes

Support details

This document pertains to HP Notebook PCs with the HP Unified Extensible Firmware Interface (UEFI) beginning in late-2008.
On startup, you may see a blank screen. If the diagnostic utilities detect a specific problem with hardware components, the fan turns on, but the screen remains blank. To help identify the cause of the problem, various LED lights on the keyboard blink a series of codes.
The diagnostic utilities use the LEDs near the Num Lock or Caps Lock keys to blink a series of error codes. At the end of the series the blinking stops. The pattern of blinks will occur any time you attempt to start the computer until the error is resolved.

Battery power LED blinks

The Battery power LED indicates the condition of the power supply. When starting the computer, or when the computer is in operation, use the chart to identify the power condition.

Battery low charge or failure
Battery power LED blinking Battery Insufficient charge on the battery

LEDs near Caps Lock and Number Lock keys blink when starting notebook
The LED lights near the Caps Lock and Num Lock keys will blink if an error is detected during the start up process. The LEDs will blink a number of times in a sequence and then stop. The number of blinks in the sequence indicates what component caused an error when it was being tested during start up.

If the LEDs stop blinking and the computer does not start, you can press the power button again to repeat the tests. Count the number of blinks, and use the chart to identify the error condition.
Knowing the number of blinks is helpful when you contact an HP support agent for technical help.
Caps Lock/Num Lock LED Component Tested Error Condition

LEDs blink 1 time CPU CPU not functional
LEDs blink 2 times BIOS BIOS corruption failure
LEDs blink 3 times Memory Module error not functional
LEDs blink 4 times Graphics Graphics controller not functional
LEDs blink 5 times System board General system board failure
LEDs blink 6 times BIOS BIOS authentication failure

Error code explanations
The sections below provide some common explanations for each error code listed in the table above.

AC Adapter not connected or battery low charge
When the computer is on battery power only and the AC adapter is disconnected, if the Battery Power and Caps Lock / Number Lock LEDs do not glow, there is either a very low change or no charge in the battery. Connect the AC power adapter, verify that the battery power LED glows, allow the battery to charge for 15 - 30 minutes and then attempt to start the computer. If it starts, run the battery test and calibrate the battery. If it does not start, if possible, connect a replacement battery to verify that the battery is the problem.

If the computer does not start after charging the battery, remove the battery and connect the AC power supply. Verify that the battery power LED glows, and then attempt to start the computer. If the LED still does not glow, either the AC adapter has failed, or there is a bad connection between the adapter and the system board. If possible, connect a different AC power adapter to verify that the adapter is the problem, or contact HP for support which may require a service event.
showhide
Insufficient charge on the battery
If the battery light LED (which looks like a lightning bolt ) flashes, the battery has insufficient charge to start the computer. To resolve this error, try the following solutions.

*
Connect the notebook PC to AC power and attempt to start the computer again.
o
Check the AC adapter to confirm that all of the plugs are securely seated.
o
Determine if the power LED on the AC adapter is lit (if available) to verify that the computer is receiving AC power from the wall outlet.
*
If the computer operates on AC power correctly, charge the battery for thirty minutes to one hour and then restart the computer.
NOTE: Charging the battery for this length of time is called "trickle charging". Trickle charging is a continuous constant-current charge at a low rate, which recharges the battery slowly when it is in a deep discharge state. Deep discharge occurs when a battery is left unused for extended periods of time.

The computer processor (Blink code 1) has stopped functioning properly. Contact HP for assistance.

BIOS corruption failure
If a BIOS corruption error occurs (Blink code 2), you may not even notice the blink codes, because as soon as the computer recognizes the error, it restarts, attempts to recover the BIOS, and then restarts again. You may notice an extra-long startup process as a result, and a message indicating that the BIOS has been recovered may display on startup. If this occurs, update the BIOS on the computer. For more information, refer to the HP Notebook PCs - Locate and Install Updated BIOS, Drivers, and Software .

Module error not functional
If you experience a memory failure (Blink code 3), follow the guide in the table below.
If Using Original Memory If New Memory Is Added
Reseat the memory.

If reseating the memory does not resolve the problem, try replacing the memory with new memory. Reseat the memory.

If you continue to experience this error code after reseating the memory, the problem may be with the memory itself. Take the new memory out of the computer, put the original memory back into the computer, and then retest it.

If you do not feel comfortable reseating the memory yourself, take the computer to a computer retailer and ask them to reseat it for you.
NOTE: Some memory module errors may allow the computer to start but will then cause the computer to restart and display a blinking error code.

Graphics controller not functional
If you experience a graphics controller failure (Blink code 4), contact HP for assistance.

General system board failure
A general system board failure (Blink code 5) is the failure of a component not covered by the other LED error codes. Contact HP for assistance.

BIOS authentication failure
The BIOS authentication error (Blink code 6) is extremely rare. It is the result of a discrepancy between the BIOS and the hardware that is installed on the computer. This error occurs when the BIOS cannot authenticate signatures from the hardware on the system. The purpose of the BIOS authentication is to be sure that no one has tampered with the BIOS on the computer.
If a BIOS authentication failure occurs, the computer automatically performs a BIOS recovery. If the computer does not automatically recover the BIOS, manually perform a BIOS recovery. To manually perform a BIOS recovery, press all four arrow keys at the same time to cause the BIOS to go to the EFI partition to find and recover the current BIOS.

Computer powers up by its self when first plugged in


Most BIOSes have a setting for what to do after a power failure--stay off, turn on, resume last state. If the user is unplugging the unit before a total legal and proper shutdown, then that might explain why it turns on 'when plugged in'. Disconnecting before completely shut down is detected by the BIOS as a power failure.

Also, killing power to a running system can cause file table corruption, corrupt files, a destroyed operating system, even in rare cases a total loss of everything on the disk.Although, If you mean the computer turns on by its self after it's been turned off (so he unplugs it to keep it from powering on), then it might be "auto awake" settings in the bios, I've seen some bios' have "auto-power on" settings so that signals from network cards or peripherals can power the computer up.

Also It turns out the CMOS battery went out and that probably reset the BIOS so the computer itself was set to turn on by itself when it was plugged in. With a new CMOS battery and a quick setting change the computer is ready to go.

Try this:

To repair your computer using Startup Repair follow these steps:
  1. Boot into Vista installation DVD
  2. Choose your language settings and click Next
  3. Click Repair your computer
  4. Choose your operating system and click Next. This should bring up System Recovery Options.
  5. Click on Startup Repair
Startup Repair should now start diagnosing your system to identify the root cause of the failure. Once it has identified the root cause, it would automatically start repairing your computer. If you are curious to know what Startup Repair did, you can click on the details link and see which tests Startup Repair ran to diagnose the problem.
After Startup Repair has finished the repairs, click Finish to reboot your computer.
Your computer should now be able to boot normally into Vista!!
Note -- If your computer cannot boot into Vista even after repairs, then go back to System Recovery Options and run System Restore.
That's it! This is how you use Startup Repair for most unbootable situations.
