Possibly the wrong driver. Always get drivers from the manufacturers web site hp.com.

XP has no USB drivers as such until XP is loaded and running. You will need to fix your CD drive. Burn a disc and then you are away. Don't install any windows updates as it is no longer supported and may crash for good. There are plenty of CD drives on flea bay. Don't forget you will need your COA number to activate it.

go to BIOS settings by pressing F2 or del while on POST (exactly after you press the power button and the screen show up). in the BIOS settings,look for "boot device priority" or something like that,usually it's placed on Advanced settings. set the 1st boot device as your hardisk,save the settings,and then restart your computer
if it's cannot turned on at all,it might be the battery,maybe you have already done this, but remember that many laptops require that you remove the battery for about 30sec. as well as disconnect the AC power to reset them. Always try to do this when everything seems completely dead.
Please let me know if it's working or not,and thanks for using fixya

Open your control panel and go to device manager. There may be a list of unknown devices, if there are then you need to install the drivers for those devices in order to get them working properly.

Driver Page for your laptop.

Hope this helps!

Make sure that the AC adapter is actually putting out voltage (and the appropriate amount) by connecting the AC adapter to a compatible and known working laptop, or by using a voltage meter. If the AC adapter is good, then make are any lights coming on when you try to turn on the computer? If so, make sure that the computer isn't just sending its video signal out of the port used to connect to an external monitor. Test this by connecting an external monitor or by pressing the fn key and whichever F key represents the toggle to external monitor function. If you are on Windows 7, press the windows key and the p key at the same time. Then, after letting go of both of those keys, use the left-arrow key and then hit enter.If there are no lights at all when you press power, remove the battery, make sure that the AC adapter is plugged in, and then try to turn it on. Sometimes a battery can be so bad that it prevents the AC adapter from properly powering the laptop at all.If none of this works, sounds like you have a hardware failure inside the laptop (could be the video adapter, the power button, or some other motherboard component).

Back Cover?

1) Display Cover: The plastic cover that is on the opposite side of the LCD screen. Sometimes referred to as Top Cover.

Display Assembly is removed from laptop first, then LCD screen assembly is removed from the Display Cover.

2) Base Enclosure: The plastic bottom part of the notebook.
A laptop is disassembled from the Top down to the Bottom.

The bottom 'cover' (Base Enclosure) is not removed first. It is last.

3) There is no back cover per se. Half of the cover for the back (Bottom half) is part of the Base Enclosure. The top half is part of the Palm Rest.

(The back has the Vent in it)



[Use the dv6700 service manual. Go down to the subheading HP Pavilion dm1 (dm1 is in blue)
Scroll to the right, click on dv6700. Note that it is a PDF file, and may take up to 30 seconds, before you see the first page come up ]

What is it you are trying to do? What hardware component are you trying to access?

Post back in a Comment.


Display assembly is removed. Palm Rest Cover is removed, and so on.

Start by trying to drain the power from the laptop. To do this, unplug the AC adapter and remove the battery. Next, hold the power button down for 30 seconds. Then plug your battery & AC adapter back in and try to power on the laptop. If the problem persists, try turning it on with the battery removed. You can also try carefully removing the memory from the laptop (located in a covered compartment on the bottom of the laptop that is usually user-accessible with a screwdriver) to see if it will stay on longer than a second. You can also check to see if your laptop is still under warranty here:

This is likely to be as a result of your processor over-heating, maybe because of your environment, possibly because the air-vent is blocked, or because the fan is not cooling the processor properly again.
Therefore my suggestion would be for you to unscrew your laptop (If you can do it by yourself), and try to clean, or better still replace your processor fan.
Also clean the air-vent where air is supposed to enter the laptop If you cant do it by yourself, you can easily get a technician to do it for you.
Also, remove all your RAM(Memory Sticks), and clean the tip of the connector with an eraser, and re-insert it one after the other.
That is, if you have two of them, after you insert the first one, put on your system and see if it works, then do the same thing with the other one.
If the two of them works, them insert the them all. but if it is just one that worked, just remove the other one that is not working and replace it.
If the two of them are not working, then try to get a RAM of the same type to test it with, either from a friend or a technician.
I have actually had the same case before, and after doing what I've just told you, it stopped behaving like that.
Then always make sure that your laptop is in a well ventilated, cool environment and that the environment is free from dusts.
Kindly let me know how it goes after you've tried this.
Hope this helps you out.

This laptop was not designed to be supported by Windows 7. After Looking on the internet for a suitable driver, there appears not to be one that will work with Windows 7 and the Vista driver will not function under the Win 7 OS. I think that you may have to consider getting an external webcam for this laptop :-(

in your device manager right click on the sound device and uninstall it.Windows should reinstall it correctly.

We do not say that the hard drive is damage maybe the IDE was faulty already. You may open your laptop and check the hard drive. Try to replace the IDE to check if the hard drive is good.
