I sent my board in to have a new NVIDIA chipset resoldered, and the new board went out 2 months later. It wasnt until after that I did some research on the HP DV 2000 and DV6000 series. I'm now looking for a cheap working motherboard on eBay so I can get the laptop up and running again to give to a friend.
