|Thanks for interest, I am right now waiting on a new amd processor for my|
hp dv2000 pavilion laptop.
I had found a refurbished logic board (tested as working) on e-bay. I installed it,did
a cooling fix on the fan with artic silver while I had it all apart.
Put new ram sticks. Then ,while I had the hard drive out,hooked it up to my working
computer via a sata adapter. I rolled it back (restore) to a time before it had stopped
booting. The dv2000 stopped booting after I had tried to install Internet Explorer 8
web browser. The dv would start to boot,then say,"device not found" and the load
box would drop out,blackscreen then. I tried F8 on start to enter recovery tools,and
the menu did come up,but did not function when a choice done.Blackscreen again.
This dv has acted strange for quite awhile. Would not reboot on a restart,locked up
during "sleep" . I had it working by using TRK until I tried to update the browser to IE8. Now,after I get the new cpu,I am going to try using the rolled back hard drive which has vista home premium on it. I will uninstall IE8 immediately if I get that far.
I can only think the cpu must be faulty. The screen had worked until I lost the MBR
master boot record. As it is now, I can't see what it is trying to do.But I can hear it
and it cranks like an old car,just like before.So, I am waiting on the new cpu and just not mess with it until cpu arrives. What do you think ? I appreciate your interest and will respond.Please allow time as I am on and offline. By the way,the computer I am using now is an absolute steal that I was sold at a deep discount on e-bay. I lucked out getting this laptop.It is a used refurbished Lenovo T60.
Thank You again for input ! I will get back to you with any updates or reply.
