Question about HP Pavilion dv2000t Notebook
My hp dv2000 won't turn on, when i press the on button, all the led lights come on and so does the power led. the hard drive led flashes for 3 times..and then there is no response...just a blank screen. however, the laptop does turn on at times..runs smoothly..i mean it's not slow or anything..it works perfectly. turning on seems to be its only problem :( somebody help plz! :(
Older Laptops can get lots of dust inside from the fan system designed to cool it. You may have a bad connection between your main board and the display. I have seen that cause eratic behavior on some systems. Since you mentioned that it does work from time to time normally, I would be more inclined to think you may have some problems with the lcd display..When it does come on, have you moved the display around ( meaning open and almost close the cover) to see if the display fails to work when you do that? As I mentioned earlier, you could have a signifiacant dust buildup inside the system and dust tends to cause intermittent shorts to the circuitry which may manifest itself as sporadic behavior. If and when the system comes up, I would strongly encourage you to create back up copies onto cd's/dvs's or an external usb drive so that you don't lose it if your laptop dies for good. Hope this helps a little.. Good Luck !
