DOES YOUR ENTERTAINMENT HP DV6045nr LAPTOP HAVE A PROBLEM???????
HP (HPQ) is, and has been aware there are problems with this series of HP Laptops. They have created BIOS flashes for each of the affected notebooks in an attempt to mitigate the problems which do not help if you are already experiencing the issues listed below. They also extended the Warranty's on the affected notebooks for another year, but unfortunately if you are seeing this web site your DV6045nr is no longer falling under even the extended warranty.
This is a quote directly from HP (HPQ)
"HP has identified a hardware issue with certain HP Pavilion dv2000/dv6000/dv9000 and Compaq Presario V3000/V6000 series notebook PCs, and has also released a new BIOS for these notebook PCs, version F.39 for dv2000/V3000, and version F.3D for dv6000/dv9000/V6000."

Time for Tear-Down: 20 min. (including taking pictures)
*** This may take you longer if you have never done anything like this before****
What is needed: Clean Space to work you should have an anti-static mat and wrist strap as well (not absolutely nessasary but good to have).
Make sure you discharge any static build up before working on any electronic components and if you get up to get coffee or any other reason discharge again before touching anything
****** Warning this will void the warranty of your HP Pavilion DV6000 series notebook (if you still have one) and can render your HP DV6045nr useless if you do something wrong. If you are not comfortable taking this or any electronic product apart have a qualified Service Technician do if for you I take no responsibilities if you decide to to this your self. There is always a risk of electrocution as well capacitors can retain a charge and the power supply as well as the battery should be removed when any repair is made. (have to do this warning just a CYA thing) OH BTW DON'T DO THIS (ok that should cover me)********
Tools you should have
Every thing in the top Black tool kit was not used in this tear-down but is good to have when you are working on computers. The Screw Driver kit in red is a great cheap kit for 12$ at your local Tool King, Checker Auto Parts, or Wal-Mart. Next is the HP Pavilion DV6045nr laptop.
All of the HP Pavilion DV series, V6000 Compaq and I'm sure more all follow this guide with the exception of screw placements and the exact configuration of the system board. There will be some difference with the HP DV series models but this will give you a basic idea of how to crack them all open.
Flip the DV6045nr over with the battery closest to you all of the screws you can get to are circled in red The long vertical cover is the memory cover this also covers the wireless (wi-fi) card and the cmos battery The horizontal cover at the top left is the hard drive cover.
