View Full Version : hp dv6000z notebook and fc 7-64

Loaded from dvd and it went fine, starting first boot and it hangs after completing the first 7 questions. All I get is a blank screen. Anybody have any ideas?
I am running a AMD Turion 64 I can boot to text only and can log in so I think it has something to do with the video or x someone suggested I download and upgrade the kernel with the nvidia rpm but how do I do this?

probably acpi is causing trouble. pass "acpi=off" during when booting. If you are using grub boot loader the use the "e" option to edit the kernel line when the boot options are displayed. Then follow the following link for configuration.

I have the exact same notebook with Vista preloaded (what a joke) and have always had apic and irq problems. try these boot parameters, I had to use these until recently:
The noapic should fix the boot hang and the irqfixup fixed my usb drive. You might also try irqpoll instead of irqfixup.
I have flashed the latest BIOS from the hp.com site, and the latest kernels seem to have much better support for this notebook. I can now boot without any boot options. I still get a random boot hang here and there, but its rare. I am using Fedora 7 32 bit.
Have fun getting your wireless working!

Ha ha I have spent untold hours working on my wireless problem. Any suggestions? I have install the bcm43xx drivers I have install ndiswrapper but not working as yet.

if it is a dell 1390 like mine you can forget bcm43xx drivers.... ndiswrapper all the way. I have a link I followed to get mine working.....
EDIT: here it is
now, this how-to is written for ubuntu so they will use "sudo" before root commands. In fedora sudo is not setup by default so we will, before doing anything, switch to root.
( enter root password )
then follow the how-to and leave the "sudo " part out, for example
sudo modprobe ndiswrapper
also before you start do this:
yum groupinstall "Development Tools"
yum install kernel-headers kernel-devel
that should keep you from running into any roadblocks

Some other things to note from my experience-
I am using ndiswrapper as well, works flawlessly.
Make sure you start off with the correct windows drivers, you need XP and not Vista drivers. I used sp3452.exe from hp.com.
I had to modprobe ndiswrapper at every boot, so I added it to etc/rc.d/rc.local.
The past few kernel upgrades have been breaking my network and wireless, my /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist file now contains these entries:

I sure appreciate the help. I will try this as soon as I get a chance to. I will post the results as soon as possible.
