Having problems with your HP Pavilion dv2000t Notebook ?

Dv2225nr won't post, all lights on (also wireless is broken)

\015 Same problem as everyone else stuck with an HP Pavillion Notebook. Called HP (3 months out of warranty), there solution is to charge $400 to fix it. How insulting, I just bought a new netnook for less. If I install samsung memory (in one of the two dim slots) and keep the AC adapter plugged in, it posts (exactly) every other time. Once it boots, it works fine except for the wireless flaked out, so I use a $20 wireless usb. I'll keep is working as a constant reminder to not buy HP products.\015\012\015\012BTW, this is my wife's computer. When I was trying to figure out what was causing it to not post, I noticed that it was hot and very slow running vista. I discovered that the samsung 120G SATA internal drive was dog slow (30MB/s read reported by HD tune). I replaced it with a 320G 7200rpm (80GB/s read) which made vista run much smoother and better overall response time. I also use one of those $5 notebook coolers.\015

Answers :

There are ways around paying the $400. First off, HP just did a huge recall on all of their dv series laptops. If you already talked to HP then it probably doesnt fall under this(although sometimes you have to kick them in the pants and tell them that you think it falls under this extended service). I do believe the problem was related to the wireless card or the motherboard's controller which handles the wireless card. You might want to call them back and check on this.

\015\012Second option is to buy a new wireless card for your laptop. If this isnt the problem then you will be out $40-50 but if it is really that important, then it might be worth a try. You can check to make sure it is the wireless card by pulling it out and trying it on another laptop, obviously this means you would need another laptop to test it on. If this doesnt work and you need to replace the motherboard and you are willing to put up the $$ then you can sometimes find a freelance tech on craigslist, although you need to screen these people beucase I have seen a lot of scammers on there. You can call up Staples Easytech or Bestbuy's Geek Squad. They will either send it out to their repair facility for $350-450 which obviously is not worth the money or they will order the part for you, and then install it on the spot. I am the resident tech at Staples easytech and that is what I would do if you walked into my store. This will probalby run you about $250($150-200 for the motherboard, $50 for installation).

\015\012I was mostly talking about the wireless card above, but the solution applies if you are talking about any other problem as well. The recall on the laptop was pretty broad on problems.
