The HP Pavilion dv1000 series, equivalent to the Compaq Presario ze2000 and v2000 series are "thin and light" 14.1" widescreen laptops manufactured by Quanta and mass-produced under the HP name. There were several different models and revisions of the motherboard which include Intel single core, dual core, AMD, SATA and IDE hard drive models.

A common issue with some models of this series is the failure of the battery charging/internal power system in which the notebook will not detect DC power when plugged in.[1]

The hp dv1000 was marketed towards home and small business users. A notable feature included was "quickplay", the ability to boot into a dedicated environment for multimedia use.[2]
