Pavilion dv5 1185 eo startup problems


I have a Pavilion dv5 eo from 1185 that won't boot to the top.

Did a hard reset.

When I turn it on the num and caps light flashes 1 time, then he have 4 sec with no flicker, then again in the same way.

And this continues to move forward that there is power on the system.

What is the problem, and what is there to do?

Thanks in advance

Best regards



I consider the search to replace the laptop. The fault could be the CPU or the motherboard itself.

The cost of replacement, unless you do it yourself, could put your costs in more than 50% of the current value of the laptop.

  • HP Pavilion dv6-1355dx: laptop startup problems and lost product key

    My laptop is not starting. I get the message "device not found Boot. Please install the operating system on your hard disk "." I tried the steps listed on the HP website (step 1: Hard reset, step 2: restore default BIOS settings, step 3: hard disk Test, step 4: reconnect the hard drive, step 5: System Recovery), but the problem persists.

    Please guide me in the following things.
    1. What can be done to fix this? I got control of the laptop of one of the centres of local services. They said that there is a problem with the hard drive. I'll have to get the replaced disk. I have no other option?
    2. I bought my laptop in 2009. It came with Windows 7 Edition home premium. Now, I don't have a product key to reinstall the same copy of windows 7. Also, I am not able to connect to the laptop because of that I won't be able to retrieve the product key from your laptop. The sticker on the back of the laptop is not more readable. It hits the major options to retrieve the key. Is there another method by which I can retrieve the key? So far, I used to restore my computer laptop settings every time I need to format my laptop.

    3. the only thing I have with me are recovery disks (3 in total). These will be of any help in order to get the windows installed on the new hard drive? Other suggestions pls?

    Looks like a bad HDD. Your product key of WIn7 which carried out the sticker on the underside of your laptop. You must get the HP HP recovery or 3rd party disc to restore your system to the rear. And there's a good chance your HARD drive is bad and must be replaced.

    The computer's refresh rate is set to 60 and cannot be changed because the "current display driver does not allow changes to hardware acceleration. Should which driver I use?  How can I uninstall the current driver and install new?

    Hi grumpysnore,

  • 1070ec dv5 startup problem

    Hi all. I have a problem with my laptop Pavilion DV5-1070ec (FM585EA). As usual, I turned off it and next day the morning it does not start. Just the power LED button flashes once and nothing else. I tried the Reset hardware, but not good. Can someone help me please?

    Allright. I found the solution to my problem. In served that told me that the internal power supply is dead, but today I managed to get it working for a short period, then internal power source is ok. That I had an idea, that the problem is with the laptop flex cable and I was right. I replaced the power button to the motherboard flex cable and my laptop is fully functional again.

    So to anyone who has or will have this problem, check the flex cables in your laptop.

  • Pavilion DV5 2775TX adapter problem


    My name is Salahuddin. This is my first post.  I changed 3 adapter for my Pavilion DV5.

    All 3 failed after less than 3 months.  I don't want to buy an another 19V 4. 7 adapter I have another adapter for my HP dragon (portable 20inches) that have the same took entry (to the centre PIN) and the same output 19V but with A 9.5 instead of the original battery 4. 7A.  Being used well.  My question is will the 9.5 A adapter with max 180W damage the laptop after prolonged use?

    Can another question, I use another adapter with output 19.5V and a 5.0?  Long use damage my laptop?

    Thanks for your help.

    It is the tension that is essential. Use of an adapter with a voltage different, even 19.5 instead of 19, will eventually damage the laptop. The amperage is not as critical because the laptop will draw only as much amperage it takes. Most of the people do not use the amp models higher on smaller model laptops because it adds extra package but weight if the card is the same voltage and it caches and works, you are safe to use. You will find the plu amp adapter charges the battery much faster.

  • HP Pavilion 23: startup problems

    Because we bought our computer in October 2014, we had many problems with the start, problems of drivers, startup problems, graphic card problems and more. It was supposed to be fixed once by the bu retailer still, there are questions. The biggest problem is starting:-it freezes, error messages that say lag not found drivers or disk not detected though when checked is. Also, we have done numerous resets hard which are just a quick temporary solution and back problems. We pay every month for a service contract with the retailer, but they mostly just try to run the store for our computer repair you... NOT HAPPY because for the third day, we bought there have been problems and we haven't bought a computer to sit in a workshop constantly, not at the price we paid coupled with the monthly fee for whatr amounts to nothing. Is there something we can do to solve this problem without driving miles and being without a computer that actually, we bought to USE?


    Without compromising your contract, I suggest

    SYSINTERNALS which is a suite of tiny applications bit that may help.

    Now only 3 or 4 are likely to be beneficial, and some does not at all because they are for servers etc.

    Thus a special interest may be...



    RamMap (maybe)

    Contig (maybe)



    DiskView (maybe)

    PsInfo (not really)

    psping (not really)

    After trying a few please ask if there is something to be interpreted.

    I suggest you turn off auto update if you can.

  • How can I make SUST recovery of windows vista Home premium via the command prompt. My laptop is Hp pavilion dv5. Meet _ @ _. ___

    The laptop is Hp pavilion dv5. I have no recovery discs. The notebook exploded when I downloaded the updates from kaspersky.


    Contact HP and ask them to send you in vista recovery disks to reinstall the operating system back as it was when you bought it

    they do it for a nominal cost of $


    or press F11 at startup:

    Restore the PC to its original state with the HP Recovery Manager if Windows Vista is not accessible

    If the PC does not start under Windows, it may still be possible to use the HP recovery disk to restore the computer to its original state. The Recovery Manager can be started during the boot process by following the steps below.
    1. Press on the button / stop to start the PC and press the f11 key when the standard BIOS guests appear on the black screen.
      NOTE:  By pressing the f11 key at startup on a computer with an image factory HP will start the system recovery process, even if the message is not displayed.
      • If the HP Recovery Manager can access the recovery on the hard drive partition, you receive a to back up user files before you start the recovery prompt. Follow the instructions.
      • If the HP Recovery Manager cannot access the hard disk to resolve system errors, you need to use the recovery disk custom that you created to recover the hard disk to its original state.
      • If you have not created the custom recovery disk, or disks are damaged, you can order a replacement of HP recovery CD.

    2. When the Recovery Manager starts, follow the instructions of recovery step by step , shown above.


    Try this to solve your problem instead of relocation:

    try a restore of the system before this happened

    If necessary do in safe mode

    Windows Vista

    Using the F8 method:

    1. Restart your computer.
    2. When the computer starts, you will see your computer hardware are listed. When you see this information begins to tap theF8 key repeatedly until you are presented with theBoot Options Advanced Windows Vista.
    3. Select the Safe Mode option with the arrow keys.
    4. Then press enter on your keyboard to start mode without failure of Vista.
    5. To start Windows, you'll be a typical logon screen. Connect to your computer and Vista goes into safe mode.
    6. Do whatever tasks you need and when you are done, reboot to return to normal mode.
  • Pavilion dv5: if I can reset this computer?

    Well, until recently, I found an old hp laptop to my father and he let me keep. I know he has had some problems in the past, so I went online and found ways on how to fully factory reset, I tried many tricks and tips, but none match the menu or options. What I'm trying to understand, is how to CORRECTLY and accurately factory reset Pavilion dv5, which runs on Windows 7 Home premium.


    Here are the different methods you can use to reset the PC.

    If none of those working, you will need to order a set of recovery disc for the specific model dv5 you have.

  • Cannot install any os in a hp pavilion dv5 - 1120ev

    Hi, my friend has an hp pavilion dv5 - 1120ev, he had top, pre installed windows vista. He asked me that if I could make the computer faster, so I told him, of course, you need to change OS to do this, you must install windows 7, I said. So I took with me, put windows 7 dvd, boot from the cd/dvd drive, deleted all partitions, even the recovery partition (I didn't know it came without a copy of disk recovery tools), partitioned the drive into 2 two new partitions, formatted and continued to install the os on the primary. The dvd that I used has all versions of windows 7, 32 and 64 bit, tried all, it gets stuck on the process of expansion, to 0% files (only with one version, she was 14%, I can't remember which), and it gives me the "windows cannot install required files. the file may be corrupted or missing. "Sure... error code: 0 x 80070017. Then, I tried with another dvd with winodws 7 ultimate, same thing. I also tried with the disc do not split into two, one partition, just in case windows is having problems expanding all of the files, just in case, same thing. Then I thought it was a bios thing, he had to be updated, which to be honest there cause of the version it is F.0C, and in the support section of the hp site, I found a newer version of it, which is also described as necessary for the latest operating system upgrade. I thought wow, that's it, I found it, I will upload a version of it bootable, version bootable cd to be precise, cause the bios version there back does not support booting from usb devices, I'll update it and install the operating system. NOPE. The site has an exe of the bios version. I tried to make a disk bootable with the bios in there (with the option of nero boot disc), I guess that I've not done it right, it could be a solution, but I could use some help on this. I also tried to install windows xp, so that I can install it the update of the bios, the same thing, I get the same error, only with the old blue sceen scholl. Finally, I tried to install windows vista Home premium, just in case the bios for a reason any has only accepted this operating system, no way, same error again! So now I'm not stuck wth no operating system, a pc unusable, nothing can be installed on it. I asked my friend that if the cd/dvd drive had some kind of problem, he said, had no problem with game discs, their loading and installation of games. Please HELP I don't know what to do! Thank you

    Nevermind, I managed to solve the problem by taking the hard drive, put it in another phone and the windows installation, then put it back. It worked like charm, so the problem is 100% on the DVD player.

    Thank you

    Hi @murrayotl ,

    Thank you for visiting the Forums HP's Support and welcome. I looked in your question in the subject of your HP Pavilion dv5-1235dx Entertainment Notebook, who need a new wireless card.

    I searched Microsoft for a fix for this and that they indicate on the forums that if you change the channel of the router on a different channel, that might solve the problem of connection of 5 GHz.

    You could disable IPV6 for the laptop. Some say this helps.

    Now, with all the information that I gave, if you still require a match to the wireless card.

  • How to connect my device bluetooth on HP Pavilion dv5-1135ee

    Please info on how to connect my bluetooth device on HP Pavilion dv5-1135ee, keeping in mind that the turn on button is a perspective!

    and with this optical touch, I activated the WLAN + Bluetooth

    Thank you very much, the problem has been resolved.

    The Solution: Run Windows Update and everything will be solved, actually it was an error inherenet on vista (Micrososft ISATAP adapter) so it might conflict with the Bluetooth device, and once the update is installed, all return to it's origin.

  • Cannot access connections wireless on HP Pavilion dv5

    Product name HP Pavilion DV5 laptop

    Windows 7 Home Premium operating system.

    Error message: Wireless message "no connection is available.

    No changes were made to the system

    I can't access wireless connections, even if the other devices have access to connections.  Wireless adapters work, but I can't seem to 'see' all wireless connections. /

    This has just occurred recently-never a problem in the past.

    Any recommendations?

    I recommend you update your BIOS. Go to , and then type the name of your product in the search box.  Choose the Dv5 Entertainment Notebook that you have and select.  On the next page select your operating system Windows 7 Home 32 or 64-bit. Once on the correct driver for your laptop page choose BIOS in the list of drivers. Please update your BIOS and reboot. This should bring your WIFI connection. Please let me know if that solves this problem.

    Try the following.

    Download IDT Audio Installer on the link below and save it in your downloads folder.

    One time finished, open windows control panel, open Device Manager and open sound, video and game controllers.  Right click on the IDT device and select uninstall - also, you should get a command prompt to delete the current driver, check the box allow this and then proceed to uninstall.

    When you are finished, download and reinstall the Chipset driver from the link below.

    Chipset Driver - Windows Vista.

    After reinstalling, shut down the laptop, unplug the AC adapter and then remove the battery.  Press and hold the Power button for 30 seconds.  Reinsert the battery and plug in the AC adapter.

    Robinet tap away at the key esc that you start the computer to launch the Start Menu, and then select f10 to open the bios menu.  Press f5 to load the default values (sometimes it's f9, but the menu below indicates the correct key), use the arrow keys to select 'Yes' and press ENTER.  Press f10 to save the setting and still use the arrow keys to select 'Yes' and press on enter.

    Allow Windows to fully - charge it will automatically load an audio driver, but let just this complete.  Then open your download folder, right-click on the IDT Installer and select "Run as Administrator" to launch the installation.  Once this done, do a right-click the speaker icon in the taskbar and select playback devices.  'Speakers and headphones' left click once to highlight, and then click the Set Default button - check if you now audio.
