Chronology of my terrible horrible no good very bad experience with HP dv2000.
4 months after I purchased it:
1- Overheat to the degree I can't leave it on my lap.
2- The battery died cell after cell until I had no battery at all and need to be hooked up to the power all time.
3- The charger cable got ripped off from the inside.
4- The hard drive got burned making me lose important data.
5- Another hard drive got burned with the same story.
6- The picture started to act funny, maybe because of the VGA is acting up and starting to die slowly.
7- DVD drive laid to rest forever.
8- Finally the VGA died giving me a black screen, and even the BIOS doesn't show up.
One year after purchasing the late HP dv2000, I returned to my three years old couple of Laptops "warriors" Dell inspiron that still love me even after I dropped them for a terrible horrible no good very bad HP dv2000.
I took a promise on my self to NEVER EVER purchase the following products:
5- Western Digital.
