HP Pavillion laptop hard disk not working

I have had my HP Pavillion notebook for a little over a year now. I normally use it for educational research, and emails.This weekend I switched it off like I normally do, and when I tried to switch t back on, the power lights would be on, but the screen would be blank. I know that the CD drive is working, as it comes out when I press the button. I think the problem is that the power is not doing to the hard disk, and therefore it is not switching on.I have not added any new programs or changed any of the settings. Do you have any idea if this can be fixed?!

Try this (a shot in the dark, but will help eliminate some possibilities): unplug the AC power cord, remove the battery, press power for a few seconds. Replug the power cord and try. If it works, put the battery in and try again.

Why is my laptop so hot and running all the time? it's only 1.5 years old?? programs are slower too.....


hello,

It is normal for hp laptop to get hot when it is running. my own hp laptop will burn my lap if i put it on my lap while running.

If your laptop is slow, free up space in the hard disk because if the hard is fill up, it can make the laptop to be slow.

If it is still slow, then the laptop is contacted with a virus. scan the system with updated anti virus and delete the virus on your laptop or you format the laptop and re run windows.

Thanks for contacting Fixya.

Hp pavilion dv9843cl. On normal startup the screen starts normal when you see the progress bar. When the desktop screen should load I get vertical lines of numerous colors and have to hold down the power...


a notebook running VIsta, i guess.
Answer 1: the OS is corrupted. (what ever it is) VISTA?
or GPU dead.
never post PC questions lacking what OS is loaded. please.
why do you say desktop?
does that mean the internal screen is dead, long ago and now you run external screen?
DV9843C
if the system is still as HP made it, IS IT?
the F11 key will pop up a screen called HP restore for VISTA
use that to reInstall the HP operation system with all HP , drivers
The HP will go back to DAY 1 condition. doing that.

if someone, put in a new HDD, and the then used Microsoft disks
to install an MS OS, then the F11 HP features will be dead.
or if the Hard disk was ever fully erased. same. deal.
we cant know what you have.

im trying hard to carbon date this hold Notebook.
year made.
as you may not know the EPA mandated lead free,
this laptops that year, all failed for, GPU chip solder joints failers
called Solder ball horrors.
in the year 2008.
HP no longer supports this laptop.
they have a spec page only, software.

here is the dead HP list
of there Pavillion page.

https://support.hp.com/us-en/retired-products


how over the list is wrong, (common)
the list in this case means soon, gone , support'
this notebook had VISTA new.
(old)
first one vista 32 was 2008
so is a solderball, laptop, the one year never to buy any laptop.

the GPU can fail, and most did.
and the screen goes dead, then the external too can go dead.
external VGA.

hope that helps.

HP pavillion cursor freezes


Sounds like u just need to wipe the hard drive out and load a fresh copy of ur operating system. This is just an educated guess but u may have either corrupted the operating system with some other software u added or removed or ur hard drive is writing things to a bad volume or sector on the drive. If u reload the OS and it still is acting funning and freezing up replace the hard drive.
