HP DV9000 – A Possible Lemon?
Posted on: October 13th, 2009
This morning I had the 4th HP DV9000 laptop in my shop with a hardware failure. This is within about 2 months!
So far this is the highest incidence of hardware failure in a single computer model that I’ve seen.
Sleek looking. And it works nice until it crashes (usually some time after the warranty expires).
We have attempted fixing two of these failed laptops by replacing motherboards in them. Unfortunately without success. They might be fixable but I’d not actually recommend it in this case. I figure from the high number of failures that it must have some low quality parts inside. So replacing one might fix it temporarily until another breaks.
So if you have this particular laptop model, or another DV series laptop then here’s some things you can do:
Hopefully, I won’t be seeing too much of these laptops in the future.
