Please help. I think my laptop has finally died. When I turn it on the button lights up blue, the green LED's light up, but don't flash, and it loudly beeps intermittently. The screen never turns on, only stays black or blank. Also, my wireless switch doesn't light up when turned on either. Any advise for me? It has crashed pretty seriously in the past, but never acted this way.

Remove all of the ram, turn the laptop on if it does not beep you have a bad motherboard. If it beeps replace the memory and remove the hard drive turn on the laptop and see if it posts. If it posts without the hard drive then the hard drive is bad. Otherwise it is probably still a bad motherboard.
Did it display any video at all with boot options or HP logo?
Any POST test or beeps after you started the laptop?
Try removing the power ac adapter and battery. then only boot it up with just the AC adapter (no battery).
Good Luck, JAJ
VGA card problem..that's what tech told me & changed it 3 times...but still laptop goes off.(exactly like u described)...they finally said need new motherboard??? so VGA will not do this again!!!!
I don't know, If I change motherboard...will this happen again...is it worth it??? My pavillion dv 2000 is only 1.5 years old..was expensive??/
You may have a bad or loose LCD, bad inverter or backlight. If you have access to a computer monitor, borrow one and while your laptop is off, plug it in your laptop's external vga connector, power the monitor, then turn on the power of your laptop. If your laptop is working, you should get a display on the external monitor.
This could be a Power/Switch Problem.
Solution:- Leave the laptop turned Of And charge the battery to Full Capacity. ( usually between 4-16 Hours ) depending on capacity.
This will also fully charge the CMOS ( memory battery )
then boot the laptop up, and see if this solves your problem.
If not i,d suggest running a scandisk or hard-drive diagnostic program, to ensure that you have no Viruses-bad sectors on the hard-drive.
If you need further assistance please don,t hesitate to ask for more help and advice.
