HOW TO FIX YOUR DV6000/DV9000/DV2000
\015\012All the Problems described are Graphics Related..
\015\012
Faulty Nvidia Chip..Both Intel And AMD Based Motherboards..Though More Common on the AMD..
\015\012The symptoms of the Laptop Powering on and Shutting Off Repeatedly..Or.. Powering On and Having No Video...Or... Power Strip Lights Up, Beeps,Shuts Down...Or..No Power At All...Or.. Intermittant Loss Of Wireless/Video Goes In And Out/Touchpad Slows and Freezes..
\015\012To Fix this issue, You will need to Reflow The Graphics Chip.
\015\012I will Explain In Full Detail As To The Correct Method Below....
\015\012HP DV6000/DV2000/DV9000 Compaq v2000 Video Chip Reflow Instructions
\015\012First Step Is Complete Disassembly Of All Parts And Components..
Remove RAM, Remove CPU, Of Course Remove Heatsink and Fan assembly.
\015\012Next Step is Insulating the Motherboard... You need to Protect The CPU area, The RAM area, Cover any plastic Plug ports.
\015\012Try to leave 1/4 inch area around the edge of the chip free of insulation.
\015\012To Insulate the Board.. I use thick pieces of Tin/Aluminum, you can fold up some aluminum foil (tin foil) About 4 folds thickness....
\015\012Now that you have your Motherboard Insulated... Make Sure There's Nothing Flamable Or Burnable Below the Motherboard... it will get quite hot underneath.
\015\012You will need a Heat Gun.. You can get one of these at your Local Home Improvement Store, they cost about $15 - $30.. You Will Use ONLY the LOW Heat Setting... I REPEAT..... USE ONLY THE LOW HEAT SETTING ....
\015\012Next You Will Need Some Coins.. Yes Coins..
8 Quarters and 2 Nickels... Put the 2 Nickels On the Bottom and Stack Quarters On Top...
Place The Stack Of 2 Nickels And 8 Quarters On Top Of The Graphics Chip...
\015\012The Reason for using the Coins: Using the coins serves a few purposes...
1) It Helps Transfers the heat Into The Chip More Evenly/Slowly
2) It Helps Hold The Heat Longer/Then Helps To Cool Slower
3) It Gives The Correct Amount Of Weight That Is Needed To Press The Chip
\015\012
A Thing To Look Out For...
\015\012Hewlett Packard is nutorious for using the RED epoxy around the edge of the Graphics chip.. this epoxy is used to help secure the chip to the motherboard...
This is a process that is Hand Done at the Factory.. And Some Boards Will Have Only A Little Amount of this, Some Will Have Alot of it...And Some are Only Done On The Corner Edges....
\015\012If There Is Alot of This On Your Chip, You Might End Up Needing To Carefully (REAL CAREFULLY) Remove as much of this epoxy as able to....You can use a Razor Blade To Lightly Scrape This Off... DO NOT MISS AND SCRATCH THE MOTHERBOARD!!! Go SLOW...
\015\012Now Comes The Heating Of The Chip...
\015\012Start With The Heat Gun About 6 Inches Away From The Top Of The Quarter Stack..You want to be holding the gun at a 45% angle.. Aim the heat at the Edge of the chip, You Will Start Rotating Around the Chip- around the outer edge of the chip...then use tighter circles concentrating on the quarter stack, then after about 30-40 seconds, slowly move closer to the chip...
Never Move the Heat Gun Closer than the Top Of Your Coin Stack...Then Pull It Back And Slowly Repeat.. The Chip Needs To Get Hot Enough To Re-Melt The Solder Balls On The Underside Of The Graphics Chip Back Down To The Contact Pads On the Motherboard.. and this takes Quite Alot of heating to Do.... You Must Not OVERHEAT the CHip... It Is Best To Underheat it and have to Redo.. than to overheat.. It will cause the solder to break down and even crack/split.. causing failure forever...
This process will take about 3 minutes total.. Once you shut off the Heat Gun.. Leave The Stack of Coins On The Chip And Let Sit For Another 5 minutes..
\015\012Now Remove The Coins(carefull they might still be hot)
Remove All Insulation.. Reinstall RAM, CPU, Heatsink and FAN Assembly (and Of Course Thermal Pads or Paste.. Note:. If Paste Is Used.. It Must Be Silver Paste...
\015\012Now You Can Connect The Power Button Strip/ Video Cable And The DC Jack Cable.... And Plug In AC adapter .. You're Now Ready To Test For Solid Power and Video....
\015\012Upon Sucessful Chip Reflow/Rebake.... You Need To Go To The HP Website..( www.hp.com )..Click on SUPPORT AND DRIVERS, then select...DOWNLOAD DRIVERS AND SOFTWARE....Then either click the box to Auto-Detect System, Or Enter Your Make/Model Info, Once At The Page With All Of Your Drivers.... Choose The BIOS UPDATE Driver..
Choose The Newest Driver And Download/Install It... It Will Reboot The Laptop And Upon Rebooting, Your Fan Will Spin Faster And More Often Due To A Thermal Controller Update In The BIOS Update...
Hi:
\015\012You need to research the support forum for this laptop at the HP web site:
\015\012http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/SupportResources.jsp?lang=en&cc=us&prodTypeId=321957&prodSeriesId=3632106
\015\012
\015\012There has been alot of premature failures on the DV series of HP laptops, and most involve a motherboard failure.
\015\012
\015\012There also was some enhanced warranty offered on some models too.
