Did you find a solution? I have got exactly the same problem with my nx9005. After hanging up while loading ubuntu i resetted it. since that point it restarts 4 times after switching it on and only shows a black and lightening screen.
It does not change if i plug on or off the ac-adapter or if i remove ram or hdd.
I also have the problem. Does anyone know the answer?
(I can confirm that the BIOS is not at fault, as I actually replaced the ROM chip with one loaded with latest 1.60 BIOS, and the same thing happens.... 4 power cycles than power light stays on, but nothing else)
Hi All, OK I think I'm going to have to create a special thread for all of the HP / Compaq people out there with this problem.
Unfortunately for you the HP Pavillion DV2000 / DV6000 / DV9000 which this is based upon have a fault on the board that causes these exact problems along with a series of related ones. Please reference this link:
Unfortunately I believe that this series also has these problems as well but, until HP acknowledges it and people bring enough pressure to bear on them it may be difficult to get them to respond.
Actually, I would encourage you to read the info at the link and you will see that the symptoms are the same as what you are experiencing. I encourage anyone with these problems to bring pressure on HP perhaps even pointing out the information I cited and try for your best results.
