Question about HP Pavilion dv9000z Notebook
Comp worked great up until today with no problems at all. Then shut it down completely and now it will not start up. When i push the power button the lights come on and the whirring of the drive and possibly the fan start (normal stuff) then the whirring stops after about 5 seconds. After waiting about 15 seconds the computer shuts itself off. Upon pushing the power button again the lights will flash and it shuts itself off in about 3 seconds with no attempt to start up.
If it's not beeping during the first start up then it's not POSTing. Beep means everything connected to it seems to be functional ie PnP
Try pulling out your memory and reseating it. Try pulling out your battery for 5 minutes then plug in ac(without batt) and see if it will boot. Try pulling your hard drive and reseat. (access by covers on bottom...dont be scared. Touch something that's grounded just before you remove) If all this and still no full POST(with beep/s) then sounds like a new mobo or processor.
