Question about HP Pavilion dv6000z Notebook

2 Answers

Inexpensive computer for video rendering. (laptops have a non removable GPU chip so...)

I am very confused I think the dv6000z has video card and does not! oops. (yes some do , like HP Elitebooks "8540w") so what is good system for doing video rendering.? We all know that the least expensive is too slow. So what is the best bang for the buck on this job. video rendering. (sorry forgot to tell what editor I am using)nor of 4k is a goal.

    help me please how to switch graphics nvidia dedicated VRAM 2gb ddr3 from intel HD 3000

  • Anonymous Dec 26, 2018

    Lots of hyjackers are asking now.
    there is the 2019 answer.
    first off there is no inexpensive rendering.
    nor if editing 4k huge videos/ what?

    nor is there GPU CARD in any DV. (oops)
    and the DV is one of the worst, laptops made.
    other maker did this too, for same bad chips from Nvidia.

    1: CCLF lamps are all mostly dead.blackscreen.
    2: DV had those nasty bad, GPU-BGA lead free solder ball failures, never buy a DV ok?

    CCLF test if screen goes hard dead black.

    uquote question.

    it does NOT work like you think it does.
    (ask on the real forum you;re not the first to ask , for sure)

    ask on forum there.
    this GPU trick is to save battery power. only.
    2d uses vastly less power.

    2d/3d switch hack IDK,but only HP has a solution if at all and is deeply controlled by BIOS firmware so not and easy fix.(nor hack)
    ask forum.

When it comes to graphics, your cpu speed and ability is just as important as your video card. Another factor is system ram; you need at least 4 gb. With your processor being so old, and your system so limited in ram, it seems to me you should put your money towards a good gaming laptop with Intel i7 and a dedicated memory graphics card. The 17-inch size helps everything run cooler, and is sometimes relatively less expensive as well, what with consumers preferring the smaller screens. A large screen is better for video editing, too.

    in the DV real, wow.has no CARD. at all.
    you planning to unsolder this? GBA ball grid array chip. GPU? really?

  • Kami Jan 19, 2019

    A desktop would do it better, of course. (For anybody reading this who might have this question.) Being the vast majority of systems within a category tend to have the same components, of the same make, it is limiting to recommend only a few. Some are of superior construction, though, not cheap plastic. I would suggest putting the features you want in search and simply comparing prices. September, April, and May are said to be good months for pc deals.

    worse yet all DV PCs DVnnnnn are junk
    bad GPU
    with CCFL that are all dead now or very soon;.
    buy 2010 or newer desktop

    "they tend to have same components" above is so wrong, wow.
    do all pcs right now have z270 based systems.
    not by an intergalactic light year.

  • Anonymous Jan 23, 2019

    buy a desktop and run any screen you like any size.
    2010 or newer all parts. ok?
    add memory as you want, more better,and always your choice;
    I recommend building a Z260prime ASUS based PC.
    then adding HDD and SSD that fits your needs.
    and runs w10-64 bit as the above does.
    and has a future. (upgrades aplenty possible)
    unlike ANY near useless laptops in this domain of video rendering.
    doing 4K unstated,? no examples of work now
    or in future stated, nor video editor stated either nor version.

    OP, buy a used HP z600 an build on this.
    or dell optiplex 990. up. laptops are
    what I call LIMPtops. like wet rag, weak and easy to damage. (so newones are vast but I bet $1500 is out of your purse range)

    or the
    The dell 3040-mT
    in the large case,for lots of HDD for huge video files to work.

  • Anonymous Jan 23, 2019

    learn this too.
    with the right GPU card,like my NvidiaGTX1050
    and using modern video rendering software!
    i uses, the GPU chip for way faster math.
    it uses the GPU as sub processor, fast,not just graphics to screen, ok?
    and rendering times doing so are super fast.
    warning the free APP this magic is turned OFF.

    A ssd or super fast 5 drive SAS raid array also makes it faster. I have hdd raid here that runs at same speed as my 1 Crucial SSD,but not my M.2.
    my m.2 sdd cleans everyone's clock.
    Samsungs best. (ask can show and tell.)

    but the OP never defined the word Inexpensive
    so has zero meaning at all.

    just like saying a cheap fast car
    $peed costs, how Fa$t can you afford?
    IDK say so.

    what is good.? mean? we don't know.
    renders in under a week? mean good.
    there is no best or good.
    only what you expect matters, only that.
    no exceptions stated,
    no video run times 1min, 1 day long.,?
    no format stated,
    no resolution stated, 4k? 1080P>?

    you can not upgrade the GPU, it is BGA solderball soldered to the mobo for ever.

  • Anonymous Jan 23, 2019

    the GPU is not on a card in any DVnnnnn PC laptop, ok?
    so popping in a ATI is not going to happen.

Hi there,

Its very confuse your comment, but I think I understand,
Perhaps, your video card, took great ammount of heat, and damage your GPU, ofteh ocurre in an non well ventilated area, or cooling system, verify that, ..or sometimes its just do a update for your video driver.
hope these hint help!

Video card Problem

If the card is sort of like a desktop video card then you by a a replacement. if the video card is integrated in the motherboard there are some companies that promise to replace it. Not an east task and price range is 90 to 15o US dollars.
If you can see video on an external monitor then the GPU is ok.

Why i cant play a psp emulator on my acer aspire 4736z even i have an opengl 2.1.0 and a latest video driver ? it always says "your video card driver does not supports opengl 2.0 .. plss help me

If you look at the specs of your computer, you will see that you have no dedicated GPU. Only an onboard graphics chip that is not capable of rendering on the fly the way psp emulators demand. Specs here==>

Also, psp emulators are tricky even with a fully capable system, and a lot of roms do not function the way they should. Always check community message boards to see if there are any workarounds for different games. It could be that you are running into a bug that is based on a mismatch between the game and the emulator.

Make sure you have the up to date drivers it may just be software!!!... but this sounds like your GPU chip is geting a bad connection to mobo.. A reflow of GPU may help,, if not a new mobo is needed.

My G41 will not boot unless I apply pressure on the video card. when I release the video card the computer freezes. This is an IBM ThinkPad G41.

When you say that you are applying pressure to your video card, am I correct in assuming you have your laptop open and pressing on the integrated video chip on your motherboard? If so, then your video chip has come partially out of it's socket on the motherboard. This is an increasingly common problem with laptops. The cause: your laptop gets hot from use, even though the CPU fan is working, and the heat builds up to the point where some of the solder gets soft or liquefies just enough for the pins of the GPU to come out of there sockets. There are several way to try to fix this problem, if in fact your chip has come partially out of the motherboard. If you do this yourself and you're not skilled in this area, there is a chance of completely ruining your motherboard. On the other hand, having a proclaimed professional do the repair may cost you just as much as purchasing another motherboard off of ebay. have to completely disassemble your laptop to remove your motherboard, get a hair dryer and use it to heat up your GPU (Video Chip), Do this slowly or you'll over heat your board and it will be junk afterwards. Heat up the area of the GPU on both sides of your motherboard until it gets pretty hot. Then use something to press the GPU back into it's socket (Flat-head screwdriver or something of that nature). Be sure not to press so hard that you ruin your GPU or other motherboard components. While pressing on the GPU, cool off the area by switching your hair dryer to cool, if it has that ability. Or just slowly move your blower away from your motherboard, then just let the motherboard cool down to room temperature. Replace motherboard and reassemble laptop. There are times when this doesn't work, or that it only temporarily resolves the problem. If it does resolve the problem, then I would suggest using a laptop cooling fan to have running under your laptop while it's on. It will help to keep this from happening again.

Faulty Nvidia CHip...

You first need to see if you are listed on the HP Extended Service Warranty Service List...

If Not....

You will Need To Reflow The Graphics Chip... It is the process of Reflowing The Solder From the Connection Balls on the Underside of the Graphics Chip Back Down To The Motherboards Contact Pads...

The Graphics chip needs to be weighted down, You can use 8 Quarters.. You must insulate all parts on the board, Cover the CPU, Cover The RAM Slots, Cover Any Plastic Ports/Connectors...

Use A Heat Gun Set On Low.....

Hold 6 Inches From The Quarter Stack and Rotate around the Quarters Slowly Moving Closer And Pulling Back... THis Process Will Take Roughly 3 minutes... You Want to Heat It Hot Enough To Melt The Solder On The Underside Of The Graphics Chip, But DO NOT OVERHEAT... If Overheated, You Will Lose The Connection Forever and Render The Motherboard Useless.....

Other Option Is To Replace Your Motherboard.... Due To THe Fact That Your Video/GPU is integrated...

Faulty Nvidia Chip....Yes, Overheating of the Graphics Chip will result in the dv6000 not powering on..

Though You should check through power to the DC Jack...
Does the DC Jack Show its Blue Connection Light When AC Adapter is plugged in?? If so, then again, you have a failing video/GPU chip.. A reflow to the chip will fix your issue..

DV6000 No Video on LCD screen

There is a very common issue with the HP DV60xx series overheating (due to the Nvidia video chip) that causes these laptop system boards to fail. There is a listing of the "affected models"
And based on your product number you may have an extended warranty. As far as I understand, this extended warranty is limited to AMD processor based units which use the NVIDIA GPU (graphical processing unit) .
I would check the link I posted above, see if your Product number (usually a white sticker on the bottom near your serial number) is on the list and then call hp.
Good luck :)
