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 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.
