Having problems with your HP Pavilion dv9000z Notebook ?

The hinge lock on my hp pav 9000 will not open or close. what can i do?

Answers :

If the laptop is still under warranty, have it looked at.
If not, here is a solution that may get it open.

Doesn't sound like a very technical solution, but I suggest straightening out a paper clip halfway, then bending the end of the straightened end, into a J shape.

See if you can ease the end of the J shape, into the hole the lock tab goes into.
The locking tab is in the top cover. It's on a spring. It slides over to one side. On the end of the locking tab is an L shape. The L shape goes into the hole, and catches the edge of the hole.

You're trying to use the J shape to pull it over to one side, bringing that L shape away from the edge of the hole, so you can open the cover.

Past this point, it's time to take it to a computer repair shop.
