HP pavillion dv9000 no fan, wont boot

I have just gotten an Hp pavilion dv9000. When I try to boot it all the board lights come up, the dvd drive tries to load but the screen stays black and there is no noise from the fan either. I don't have its hard drive so I don't know if its putting power or not. Also I'm in Australia but there was no Australia link so I just used usa. Please help I wan't to get this working. Corey.

  1. I'd hook it to an external monitor and see if that works. You might have a bad LCD or inverter. If the external doesn't work, it might be a bad video card. Some of the 9000 series had recalls. I'd look into that also through HPs site (you'll need you model/serial number, google HP recall)
  2. Oh, and the fan may not come on until the CPU warms up (passive cooling).
  3. Oh I forgot about this thread :kaola: I found it to be a dead graphics so scraping it for parts. Thanks for your help.
  4. YOU dont have to scrap it .... YOU can reheat the Mother board to reseat the Solder JOINTS ... I have done it and it works

    Sorry for a very late reply, been awhile since I've been here :P
    I tried that to no success. The HP is long gone now so i guess it doesn't matter. got myself an XPS m1710 anyway :D $120 bargain!
