Question about HP Pavilion dv4000 Notebook
Press f8 many times need to reset admin pw
If you want to reset the BIOS password remove the computers battery and then open the backpanel and remove the bios battery for about 20sec. If you want to reset Windows admin password this is harder issue -> easy way make a backup and reinstall windows and then restore the backup.

Hi there Dublin. I recently bought a HP laptop myself, and I believe I can help your situation, or at least I hope I can. Here's what you do: Access your Control Panel>Click Mouse>Click Device Settings>Click Settings> Click Tapping> Click Disable Tapping. That should do the trick. You are not disabling your touch-pad, just the double-clicking that is associated with it. Drove me nuts for about a day, 'til I figured it out..Hope it worked for your notebook.

SOURCE: HP Pavilion dv4 not turning on
Disconnect all devices from the power supply EXCEPT the motherboard
Remove any extra cards including video etc.(plug monitor into the onboard)
If you hear any beeps these can indictate where the fault is.
either of these sites below will help you further with that
Beep codes Pc
More beep codes
Power up the pc and see if the fans are working.
If not then double check the power connections to the board.
If you still have no fans it is time to suspect the power supply as the probable cause.
If the fans worked then you should have gotten a display which told you there was an error and offering you a chance to go into the BIOS. ignore it and shut down the PC.
Now connect one drive only and boot again.
Repeat that until you identify the component that is giving you a problem.
Once you find the problem then remove or disconnect and carry on with the rest to see if another component might also cause a problem
If there is only one problem device then you may want to investigate that device further, Unless you don't mind replacing it

Sounds like you need to take it in for repairs, clean outs and/or replacements.
This product is known for it's heating issue and power consumption. Maybe the fan is starting to wear out and it's affecting the rest of the system. I would suggest checking the warranty on the system, if it is no longer valid, then I would look for a local tech in the newspaper.

Was Windows 7 the operating system that came with
your System? If not, What I would advise you to do
Check HP website to find out if your Laptop supports
If it doesn't, then I would advise you to
PLEASE change it back to the operating system
that came with your system, or better still, the
operating system that it supports.
The reason is because that is exactly what I faced
two weeks ago....
I changed the operating system for my PC to
Windows 7 ( Even though it doesn't support it)...it
worked fine for a while, then later it started to develop
faults after a while...like stuttering, mouse pointer
moving round the screen, graphics displaying
I first thought it wasn't a big deal, so I fixed it by
repairing the drivers, and it worked fine once again...
After using that same crack that you said you used,
I started getting "Multiple Hardware Error"!
It would just Power on, Show HP Logo, Show
Wireless LAN indicator Led ON, and It will freeze
there. I could not even enter the BIOS.
In short ....Now as I'm typing, the system is
with HP Service Centre for they have to change the
So PLEASE, if your system was not specified
Windows 7, use the Operating Systems that it
Then go to HP Website and download the original
BIOS settngs for your Laptop then repair your
system with it.
But if it is the one that came with it, then let me know
so as to tell you some quick fixes.
Hope this helps you out.
Goodluck and thanks for using fixya!
