Make sure the PS or adapter you are using is good. If it does the same with another known working adapter or battery then it appears that the cmos on the mo bo is corrupted. U might try disconnecting the hard drive and optical drive to see if unit stays on. But if it still goes out then it is definitely the board and a faulty peripheral is not to blame.

If board is bad, time to go shopping since the repair is not really cost effective given the cost of the board and the high labor expense involved.

On my HP Pavilion DV9500 with Win7 64 bit (laptop was new in 2007 and had Vista), I have the same problem, and I press FN-insert/scroll key and this works as the print screen button. That's the function key together with the insert key, which is 2 buttons to the left of the print screen key.

I cannot solve your problem. However I have exactly the same problem with my DV9600. I can hook up an external monitor and use it as a desktop. Mine is also off warranty. I am curious if others have the same problem and if more people telling HP about this will have any effect.

The problem is the GPU, HP will fix it for free if it's less than 2 years old. You can check out www.msbin.com if it's over 2 years old. The guide will show you how to reflow the GPU with common household tool.

I assume you are using a version of Windows. If so, you will need to go to the control panel and reset the type of keyboard you are trying to use. This will most likely require loading a new driver for the keyboard. If you got a CD with the keyboard, there should be a driver for it on the CD. If not, you may find a driver on the internet ... try a google search for the name & model of your keyboard.

Follow these steps to fix the problem :

1.Turn off the computer press F8 when you turn on the computer you will get advance boot options on the screen.
- Select safe mode and the press the enter key twice
- the computer bill boot into safe mode
-when you get all the icons click on start in the search system restore and then restore it to a date when it was working fine. ( Select a date when your system was working fine).
This process will restart the computer automatically and you will get a message that it has been done.
This should fix the problem.
If this doesnot then reinstall the video card driver and see if it helps.
you can do that by going to the manufacturers website then go to drivers and downloads and then by selecting your product.

A code 10 is usually indicative of a device that is not recognized by the computer, this could mean that is has failed, has become dislodged from its connector or the drivers are no longer valid or have failed to the point where they do not point the system to the device. Try downloading new drivers for the device. If that fails, try to remove the keyboard and replace with same or newer and check all connections. Below is the link to the service manual.

That a nice computer you have there. Based on your description, my guess is you have a bad power supply.
About a $300 fix if you send back to HP. Which is what I had to do a while back.

Try holding F11 while booting, sometimes this triggers the recovery partition.

the only possable problem is the power source. so most likely your power converter box on the power cord has over heated, which is common, its expensive to replace though($70-85). if the problem continues take it to a shop don't try to repair the internal power converter yourself.

The keyboards on laptops are somewhat fragile, and would be the first thing that should be tried. They are not too hard to change, and relatively inexpensive, about $15 on ebay. You could plug in a external, USB keyboard to use temporarily too.

Copy-protected DVDs prohibit people from copying them, which is piracy. Copying a DVD to sell or even to give away is illegal. You can play copy-protected DVDs in a standalone DVD player or in your computer's DVD drive, as long as your computer's software is up to date. These DVDs will play the same as DVDs that are not copy protected

Press the "Eject" button on your DVD player to open the DVD tray. Set the DVD into the tray, and push the "Eject" button to close the tray. Press the "Play" button on your DVD player, and the DVD will play. b> On a DVD Drive on a Computer Press the "Eject" button on your DVD drive to eject the DVD tray. Set the DVD into the DVD drive, and push the tray in to close it. Click the "Start" tab on your computer's home screen to open the "Start" menu. Click on "My Computer" to open it. Click on the DVD drive to open the DVD. Click on "Autoplay" to play the DVD.

A dvd burner will burn anything you tell it to burn, the things is you need certain programs to see what the extension was that you burnt.

EX- if you burn a DIVX file, windows media player won't see it, but it will see a WMP file.

The most important thing is the burning software, makes it easy to burn boot, ISO files, video.

But like I said, a DVD burner will burn anything you tell it to burn.

Firstly enter the bios screen and set your boot device from HD to USB. Insert your bootable USB drive and start the machine.
