OK.. so in another thread a guy baked his graphics card in the oven @ 400 degrees and it fixed his problem...

My HP quit.. black screen with a very slight glow.. sent it in to Pell tech, paid them $150 and they fixed it. It quit again and now they want $385. This computer is known for this problem and there's a class action law suit. But, does anyone know of a fix for this problem? A fuse? a wire broken? HELP!!

You might want to know what they fixed in the 1st instance and go from there

Just get a new motherboard. You can easily get a Mobo and CPU combo and reuse everything else for under $100.

Mobo just went up on my HP DV9000. Luckily I had the extended warrantee but it still took 2 weeks for a fix...

Is there a thought that the CPU is bad too?

Look through newegg.com

I've come across some good deals as far as combos are concerned at that site.

Here are their motherboard and cpu combos:

If you keep checking daily, you can find some pretty low priced specials. I remember seeing a combo not to long ago for around $90.

If this is a laptop I may know hwat the problem is.
My friend had a laptop, it was either a Hp, or Dell. I forget.

Any ways, I have worked on, and build probley 50 in the past few years.

The CPU will sometimes get unseated, and then it will not power up any longer.

Remove CPU, make sure no thermal paste in on the pins, and reinstall.
Make 100% sure the CPU is level, no cocked up on one side any, or it will not work.

Same applys to desktops, if the PC gets jared to hard, it can cause the CPU to loose connection. And when you have hundreds of pins, all have to make connection all the time.

Just a tad more info, check all power connections, unplug, then plug back in.

Also removed each stick of ram one at a time, and then put them back in, notice the notch, and get it level, and latched down on both sides. While it's out make sure no dust, or fluff in in the slots.

Most motherboard issues are from the capacitors 'drying out'.

If you are handy with a soldering iron, I'd change out all the caps and see what that does. It won't cost much to do, and if it doesn't work, at lest you got some good soldering practice.

rcflyer09;

It powers up ok.. when I plug in a remote monitor it goes to the windows deal about safe start or normal start.. I select normal and then it looks "normal" until the time for it to actually start.. if that makes sense... then black screen with dim glow around it. Maybe graphics adapt.. but I've been told it's on the mobo.

I'm very good at soldering. It's been fixed once so I might be able to see what they did and repeat it.. if I can figure out how to get it apart. Thanks.

Yug; I have no idea what you said!

I have the dv 9000 and it has lost the mother board about a year ago. It was 5 days out of warranty!
It would start to boot but then simply power back down after 20 seconds. I thought it was the battery or charger but service tech narrowed it to mother board. It took 3 before they got a good one from hp.

Sounds like to me the resolution is to high, what size monitor, or TV screen are you pluging into it? He must have a laptop>

Set your resslution lower then try it. If that dont work try to set it higher.

Throw away

Computers are throw away, you can get a nice Toshiba Satellite for about 390 shipped from New Egg and it is probably twice as fast as what you are trying to repair. I am guessing you have a laptop since you referred to "another monitor" than the primary. You said you were not computer savvy so we won't go into drivers or beyond.

You could try your restore disks?

As for soldering you are wasting your time, if you could get the chip it would be SMC and not even worth the effort.

If it is a desktop then you can replace everything for about 300, monitor keyboard .... everything... gotta love it.

I can't understand the guys who buy new I7's and 3 SLI video cards etc... and have 3000.00 wrapped up in a computer you could only get 400 bucks for 1-1.5 years from now, if that?

I understand if you are rich or well off but this is not the case that you normally see, it is a guy just getting by.

Lastly please, please, please stay away from Best Buy, anyone tech savvy walks through a Best Buy almost laughing at the prices. I know they need to keep the lights on and pay employees but horse S&^t, they are cleaning up...

if you are getting as far as a windows boot select the problem is not your hardware, its your windows install. Get your windows disk or the restore disk that came with the computer and reinstall windows. if the computer didn't come with a restore disk, one of the boot options should be "recovery partition" or similar.
