The solution is:

What you do now is Get a hair blow dryer, set it to maximum hot air and blow 1 cm distance from graphics card for about 5 minutes.

let it cool for 20 minutes.
Put back all components.

my hp Pavillion laptop will not turn on - the lights on keyboard flicker and then turn off and then turn on again. Screen stays black.

This is sadly common with the DV series of notebooks, google the fault and you will find a load of people who have had similar issues.

Cause: Motherboard fault, possibly overheating, which causes the graphics chip to unsolder from the board and you get no video. I suspect a replacement mobo will be needed.

One think you COULD try is to test the AC adaptor to ensure it is putting out voltage, if the adaptor light is flashing, its signifies that the current is being "spat back", due to it not completing the circuit, this again could be down to motherboard charging circuit or faulty adaptor or looseness of DC port

Black screen when the hp dv7 stratup

Contact HP. There are known issues with the DV line of laptops. They die......seriously. Ask them if the problem qualifies your laptop for a "one time warranty enhancement". They might just fix it free as there are known problems with the DV series.

Hope this helps! Post a comment if not and I'll see if I can help.
