Having problems with your HP Pavilion dv2000t Notebook ?

Won't power on all the way

\015 When I press the power button all the lights come on and I hear the fan/motor power up but then it goes right back off. It started about 2 weeks ago, and after 3 or 4 tries it would power up all the way, but now it will not power up at all. \015\012\015\012HP dv2500\015

\015\012This sounds like an auto shut-off signal given by the processor because of a possible over-heating issue. This usually happens when the laptop has been run for an extended time without having the dust, dirt and debris cleaned from its cooling vents and grills. After time, the thermal paste on the processor bakes under the extreme heat and starts to flake off and lose its efficiency at cooling the processor.
\015\012Get a few cans of compressed air that you would buy at an office supply store and using short bursts, blow out the dust and dirt from all the ventilation grills and vents first, make sure the laptop is powered down and battery removed. Then, open all the compartments and clean them out as well including the cd/dvd tray. There is a small black hole on the dvd bezel, just stick an open paperclip in it and it will pop the tray open. Blow a good blast in there to clean the dvd player.
\015\012There is the possibility that the thermal paste will have to be replaced, that means you need to gain access to the heatsink and remove from the processor, clean all the old thermal paste from it and apply a small thin layer of new paste to the top of the processor and replace the heatsink, securing it evenly with the attached screws.

Bought new battery for dv9000t but monitor says "Charging, 0% available" And indeed after several hours still no charge. There's probably a trapdoor disconnect as part of the complex electronics inside a Lion battery to prevent charging when cells are out of acceptable parameters. I would not be surprised if there isn't a way to perform a reset from the 6 external pins. Agreed Lion charging is not for the begining level of understanding. Any guru out there on this matter?
