Is the infamous dv6000 or dv9000?
Use doesn't seem to matter on this one.
Beyond that my mom's did same. We had to go over how to charge it up.
HP that turns off by itself after 15 seconds
what do you mean you had to go over how to charge it up?
My mom was a new user.
She didn't know laptops needed charging. Why we had to go over is because she didn't know what the charger looked like or where to plug it in.
Everyone gets to learn this stuff.
HP laptop keeps turning off
In response to the message about charging, that isn't the problem. We have charged and charged and charged again - still shuts off after about 15 seconds of desktop view - any other suggestions?
What do you mean when you say yearly cleaning?
How is covered at the link given.
Yearly was told by another member with an EASY to remember tip.
ON YOUR BIRTHDAY, replace your fire alarm batteries and clean your PCs.
Do you open it or how do you clean it? I know this sounds dumb but other than vacumning the keyboard and wiping the screen I have never heard of how to clean it.
It's covered at many web sites. Here's another.
Read http://forums.cnet.com/5208-19681_102-0.html?messageID=3196452&tag=forums06;posts#3196452 and there I give the basics, a link from HP, and a contribution from Foner Books.
Hope this helps,
PS. As to why the makers don't tell you I can only guess none do since if one maker told you then they could lose sales because a consumer would think the other models that didn't inform the owners must be better since no cleaning is required. The truth is that a yearly blast of air would hurt the market.
Something called a "blower"
Hi, this reminds me, is it possible that we use a "blower" to clean the laptop?
Why I use Canned Air.
It's dust and oil free so I am not introducing new problems.
So my question is again.
Is this the famous dv6000 or dv9000 model?
I read your posts and can't find the model.
HP Laptop turns on and shut down
If the battery of the HP laptop is not in a good condition, sometimes booting problems might happen. To remove any static charges accumulated in the battery, you would have to remove the battery and press the Power button for about 25-35 seconds. Then reset the battery. Even after this, if your laptop is not booting up then you could perform the battery calibration and press F8 key to boot in safe mode.
This does not work on the failed dv6000/9000s.
