ran for 2 days on AC pack only?
battery out, be clear there... it must run on ac alone .
the BIOS is next
is the screen with text?" or really is 100% black all the time.
remove the hdd if it makes abnormal noise, and check that BIOS screens work , even take out the DVD drive.
battery is already out. they short. get it out .
then push the bios keys, ESC?
this PC laptop has CCFL lamps that go dead.
so do the flash light trick first. while calling up BIOS.

OLD DV6910. note book. (circa 2007 ) near end of HP support.!
MS stopped VISTA this spring.
no, toshiba is no good, as are all other PCs makers disks no good. your PC us USA HP computer, its not from Japan.
sorry. only MS disks or best of best HP disks work.

the ISO from MS, how'd you get that, and when.?
the current link at MS needs valid RETAIL COA code to download it.(oem codes not)
The MS disk do not have all drivers need, to make an HP pc run..
sure it will load, but many things CAN be dead.

is your F11 restore dead too? (its VISTA, if you dont know)
power on , F11, f11, f11, f11 , hammer it. see the HP restore?

here is your official HP support page.'

https://support.hp.com/us-en/product/HP-Pavilion-dv6900-Entertainment-Notebook-PC-series/3725196/model/3740554
see? that

and all were shipped with VISTA, and F11 key restores
VISTA , there is no W7 drivers. from HP , zero

"i got image to burn.?"
so then what?, did you install W7?
and see all those dead chips? in device manager
did you get Ethernet working first so W7 can PNP the drivers automatically, /??
Things that can fail are.
HP special drivers for like , hot keys, that MS does not have
all HP apps will be missing.
and all drivers for old vista chips not supported under w7
see?>

MS loads. here is the path (using ms, disk and not HP media kit)
why not get the HP kit from HP???????

  1. Get MS w7 ISO, from MS using the $120 key, COA key,
  2. oops the HP key is no good, its OEM key/.
  3. down load ISO from MS.
  4. burn a USB stick or DVD from ISO, (Rufus, or imgburn free)
  5. boot PC using BIOS boot to DVD or stick as the case applies.
  6. W7 Loads, ok. (it runs sure, but...)
  7. W7 fails on Ethernet or wifi, one must work now or doomed, lacking other PC to find drivers from chip makers or MS.
  8. I wire up the Ethernet jack RJ45 cat 5 to my router.
  9. the internet is connected, i then let W7 find the drivers, good luck finding them all.. some can be missing, on 10 year old LT.
  10. if at wits end see this , on how to get them the HARD way.
  11. http://www.pcdied.com/Drivers.html


if you make a PCI scanner boot disk (or stick)
http://www.pcdied.com/pci-101.html
you can find most drivers. (mine never fails)
using he scanner on any PC we see all chips
and with vista drivers failing on w7
we go to the makers site and get the W7 driver
as seen here, PCI sniffer3 , I uses this all the time.
for exactly this reason.


the HP media kit DVD set is for VISTA only.
sorry.

Demanding are you,? this IS NOT HP, nor is it in warranty after 15 years. wow.....
so there will no DEMANDS BY you, this is free helper here,
(like charity, mom says never bite the hand that feeds you remember? free hands, for sure)
see how far DEMANDS last at HP.
https://h30434.www3.hp.com/

tell me.. love to hear that. on TXT BLOG FIXYA.

a retired PC at HP, its OLD, super RETIRED .
https://support.hp.com/us-en/retired-products
no photos of switch how can we guess that?
i can not see what you see, lacking a photo.
do hot tell any poster not to guess, heck you never showed a photo or even told what OS is there, XP op sys?
the answers will be directly related to your poor inputs. in ALL CASES.
tell me does your doctor diagnose you in some silly text file?
NO.
Backup is your job, if not done by you and the HDD crashes
all is gone, unless one W8 -w10 and the cloud saved your bacon.

so far we know little
its PC a DESKTOP
it turns on ,
and screen turns on and never evens shows text message EVER?
NO MONITOR stated, maker or model ,must we guess that too?
if its modern and not some 1985 CRT, but LDC
2004 or newer, ? it will have OSD menu.
turn on the monitor, push select see that OSD menu the monitor brain shows. if not the monitor is dead.
'if the pC dies, monitor it , it tells you, NO SIG or other errors
does it?
if the monitor works (gee test on other PC????)
then the PC is bad.
easy no box 1 ok monitor box 2 bad. pC.
easy peasy.
if the PCs PSU is not dead.
and fans run the next things is BIOS
so now PC questrions
do the fans in the pC run? all of them????
do the key board lamps glow, as you toggle the caps /or numlock keys?
does the CD drive eject on button push,
no ,no,no, then the PSU is dead.
if the screen shows words of any kind
ever ,say so.
if the screen is black all the time use the OSD button
if dead the Monitor is dead.
no monitor stated.
if the screen shows text,. then tell what it says.
and we can work forward to the relic XP, OS.
16 years old that is and dead, support world wide.

no PC stated full model number
no OS stated. XP?
ASAP only works for paid service, this is free advice. not paid.
so no ASAP.
we are not HP either why not ask on their forum>?
never post emails. unless endless SPAM for 100 years is fun?

my wild guess.
OLD PC
running XP
and infected,
right?

the cause is using the mixer incorrectly, or mixer is junk, IDK,
now idea at all what system parts are there, not a clue here.
in the mixer, uncheck microphone.
Computers can be set up 1000s of ways, you know?
Not even a clue at all what PC< desktop or laptpo
no clue at all. just vague DJ bla bla....
answer is so will pure generic electronics (im certified tech. retired)
Most PCs of all kinds have sound card, or built in. (or just 1 chip)
be it a destop or lap top,
my PC has a sound card, (fancy,) DTop,
with 7 channels and all that stuff.with matching powerful software.

on a real desktop with a real sound card it has many jacks there
not just 2, (mic/speaker.,)
mine has line in, and line out. and many others for speakers,

there are 2 ways to record
1: using and external , say Mp3 recorder. (and 100 other ways )
2: and using the built in sound recorder in windows, do you have windows. you never said that nor which windows

the 1st choice is hardware, pure electronics, in fact tape recorders worked there for since first one made, using line in. to recorders.

choice 2, is software, you can buy a APP to do that, that is better than what Windoz offeres.


see here?
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sound_card

see that lime green wire?

the top sound cards all have special softeware
that has a super fancy MIXER, the mixer allows you to mix
anything you want. with a click of a button
if you dont have good sound card or matching software
all you get is windows basic crippleware. weak and very limited.
so next time tell the helper what you have.
fully and get 10x better answers.

here ill wet your whistle, on what can be done.
you want 2 CHANNEL STEREO recorders.
or even TOSLINK connections.?
How good is your source music, ? if poor then use cheap hard/software but don;t expect windows to do this well.
if running windows 10 go to the MS windows, STORE,
and buy a better audio software package.

ideas, are endless in recording
hardware super good. or better,
http://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_from=R40&_trksid=p2047675.m570.l1313.TR12.TRC2.A0.H0.Xroland+r-05.TRS0&_nkw=roland+r-05&_sacat=0





last is fancy app software like this.
I use this
it does it all. for near nutt'n.
GOLDWAVE (ive had it for 20 years too)

https://www.goldwave.com/


last
the word Disk Jock is a persons or is one of many hardware products, not stated by you.
is it this. old box? by maker NUMARK?

https://www.numark.com/images/product_downloads/dm925_referencemanuals_00.pdf

in the above jack 15 line out goes to sound card, LINE IN.
then in the PC you play or record off of LINE -in in the PC.
if you dont have a real PC with a Real sound card
this can be hard, using the MIC as a line input will cause
huge overload saturation of the mic amps, and sound like H3LL..

What operating system OS? XP><? WHAT OS?
what is full model number or this 15- "????
the HP suport page shows 63 different model 15s , hark.
ok, did you try a store bought CD firs. CD-CA?
not copies or burned CD-r.
CD's come in 2 size, normal 800MB sizes and 200MB tiny.

many CD players not do the tiny ones, lacking spot there to hold it in place. (do find a pC that can copy this tiny CD to USB stick)

first try a real CD, say an install disk full size, CD (not dvd)
or a store bought CD-DA,compact disk digital Audio, say with
songs from say, Johnny Cash. (#1) then click the disk. in explorer.

the PC to AUTOplay a disks takes 3 things
1: autoplay turned on,
2: CD drive must work and be GOOD.
3: and real CD in the tray , closed. (real means with valid content)

#3 is easy no, use a real CD to test the CD, from store in the music department. (reading CD-r can fail on many older CD drives)
tests , many; , ill do some. now. (for sure a year 2000 PC)
then if say its a program disk, say you put in the HP install disk.
called the media kit, disk from HP, or from microsoft. (a real CD)
real means not CD-R , (recordables)
go to explorer, in windows 10 its now called, "THIS PC"
does the the CD show up in this true name Explorer.?
does the CD drive show up in Disk manager, in CP?>control panel..
does the CD drive show up in device manager>?
all those are a YES,
if all shows up, then look for program files on the disk using explorer.
do you see files, thre, (install disks)
one FILE might be setup.exe, can you run that.? double click it?

if yes, then autoplay is turned off in your unstated OS.
if not the CD drive is bad or the CD is not any good.

I have My Autoplay off since it was invented so viruses on said disks
can not autolaunch, a not so good thing.-

now 1 example (not XP,vista , w7,w8,w8.1 )
in windows 10, to turn on this autorun ( horror)
click settings in the run menu. w10
click devices
click autoplay on left side.
behold. turn it on or off, and blow the on button, pick a rule.
or turn it on and pick "ask me every time.".. for safety.
under removable drive.

tell OS , tell what PC this is, 15 does not answer that question
please. for 10x better help.
PS; click HP15 here and see all 63 models.

what PC full name? what OS?
so are you saying you want both screens the same time.?
the operators guide answer this.
dV7, what, you didnt post the full model. ,
lots of DV7 made. 1000 to 6000 series. sorry cant guess.
is sleep mode off
and screen saver off/ hibenate off.
id read the users guide first, see what options are featured, on YOUR PC. 29 classes of dv7 and subclasses.

https://support.hp.com/us-en/products/laptops/pavilion-notebooks

read your service tag to learn what you have.
then go here
WHAT OS came with your PC day1 new.,
is the current OS same as DAY1.? or upgraded some why..
if upgraded, to what?

all the 1000 series book says is this, "says it alternates"

there are many LEVELS of OS repair modes.
one is startup files bad, and fix that.
others are refresh.
and last full install.
the HP site covers how to do all that. hp.com
HDD not found is usual just that. bad HDD.
ever listen to one, if silent its DEAD, HDD, not SSDs.
One can remove the HDD, and put it in a eSATA enclosure
and plug it in to any PC modern has eSata, and see if data can be recovered. this is best way 1. or just plug it in to a good system.
Best is Desktop as those can have up to 8 drives installed ,
like my ASUS has. (actually more on mine)
That covers the topic DATA, recovery, 101.
now the cure.
buy a new SSD and then do a fresh install with HP media kit
then copy data from old drive, (if not dead) to new drive.
SOP, standard op. procedures. all.

Windows scans the HDD< for the DRIVER busy line to be not busy
if the drive is dead , it can set this line (all do dead) to true,.
busy forever, (aka READY) and is NOT ready.

when THE OS sees it in that logic state, it can not access it at all.
all it can do in that state is see name of HDD and model.
if super dead, it reads nothing... no Pnp DATA, zero.
and that is a totally dead drive.

one way to prove this is put the HDD in another system.
or run a live linux boot CD and see , yup its dead
or run linux partition tools, yup dead.
or windows 10 PE, boot CD
links to all that are here.

you will fail to get the OS healthy, I can and on many but took
days to do and paid me $$$$ to do it ,due to very important data on said systems! I'm real good at hard surgical virus extractions..)
NO HP system stated, just Pavilion.

here is the only solution 10 years and newer Pavilion
go to HP.com
the put your service tag data in the box when asked.
then get the HP, media recovery disks.
end problem.

Today we back up, so the OS is 100%^ expendable.
and reload it. at (infection time)
but if you have data. that is not backed up say so
What Id do, if that data is important
is to put in a new SSD
and do a fresh load
then connect the old HDD<using say a external driver enclusure.,
(have many here , in lab)
and the get your old data that way,
even scanning it from virus first. as a slave drive, never as boot.
data recovery 101.end. a long topic in its own right.


and stop reading email attachments or pornn

Ensure it is never put in sleep mode and run a registry cleaning programme.

NO operating system stated, sounds W7 like.?
there is no lifetime anything, SORRY!
my guess is some kind of marketing Hype,?
what do you expect for QVC, (avoid like the plunge, me)


that warning is , Microsoft, ant- malware engine protecting you.
(and anti-virus too)
it will see vast errors, cruising THE world wide web of infections.
for SURE.

Its ok, dont panic yet
run the clean,
let them both runs, 1 at a time, never both same time.
on Windows 10 its called Defender
click the tray icon and do a full scan
scans are NEVER risky .
scan it every day.
if kids use internet scan hourly (LOL)

think of the internet as a huge garbage can. (it's 10000x worse)
think of the scans like Shower and 3 doses of Penicillin


if confused
post here
on the real forum
http://h30434.www3.hp.com/


All versions if windows are a virus magnet
XP is worst
gets better every release.
W10 is the most safe! but has other issues, (spying that is easy to turn off ,ask)
and Linux vastly better, (search linux virus in the wild)
the most safe of all is booting running from CDROM or flash stick
running say windows 10 PE live CD
where nothing gets saved! ever.
or running a Virtual OS. ( i offered things to learn )

Yes it does! Most desk top units do need external speakers. Your computer has integrated audio on the motherboard and a speaker output jack.

HP Pavilion... | 69 views | 0 helpful votes


is it the same size hard drive? You may have a problem with what is called the branding of the main board. What that means is the mother board has information programmed into it that tells the restore disk that it belongs to that system and what it needs to load on to that system for a factory restore. Most of the disks have programs the go to other systems of the same series so they make 1 disk for the series and then program it to only load the programs that came on that system. You would need to take it to someone who can get the program to see if that is the problem after they rebrand the system.

Google Plasytore is currently unavailable on Windows, but you could try the official website if thats comes in handy
https://play.google.com/store?hl=en
(Btw you cannot download android applications on your pc except through the use of Bluestacks or such)

Looks like you have Malware /

REBOOT / tapping the F8 key on the keyboard... / Select Boot into "SAFE MODE"

Then browse to C:/Users/jlfig224/AppData/Roaming/

DELETE folder : 58922d0/ (and everything in it)

REBOOT ..and reply back with results.

Try reinstalling the complete version of windows 10.

HP Pavilion... | 38 views | 0 helpful votes


try when starting the laptop, hold delete or alt+del down to open in the bios section
go to the section that allows you to select the boot able devices
change from first hard drive to second hard drive or external disc drive or what ever you have that you can boot from and make that first boot
if you get it right then the message insert boot disc will go and the unit will boot up from that device
best use an external hard drive that you can put the disc in and make that your first boot up
by getting the computer to boot up you can repair any mistakes or circumvent any failed internal hard drive
only thing is , if your hard drive is shot , you will loose all files , folders and data unless you have it backed up on another device
