I have one of these laptops HP Pavillion dv5000 on the waiting line to repair.
reseat the memory chips. If that does not work...
if you have two, take one out and try to boot with each one as the single chip.
You MUST unplug it and remove the battery! before you touch the memory. Touch the metal body of something grounded to make sure you are not carrying static.
You may have a memory chip gone bad.
The minipci (probably wireless card) compartment has to be opened to get to the memory compartment.
Here is the service manual in pdf format if you want to learn about your computer.http://www.frc-tech.com/docs/manuals/SG/hp...on%20dv5000.pdf
