I have an HP Pavilion dv1000 PC Notebook and when I try to start up my laptop, I have to press the power button at least 20 to 30 times. After 20 times or so if I press and hold for 4-5 secs it does seem to help. I am worried that eventually it will stay off permanently and that will be the end of my computer. Is this a fixable problem? Thanks, Linda P.

Hi, Try a hard reset. Sometimes it works and is always the first step to take. Remove the battery and the ac adapter plug from the laptop. Press and hold the power button for fifteen seconds. Install either the battery and A/C adapter .Now just press the power button to attempt a boot into the OS.
Contract for further instructions. Hope this helps.
incorrect shutdown with low battery will always cause problems....
first of all youre gonna have to put some charge into the battery...
then..press the power button to startup and wait for activity...lights , sounds etc..then press and hold power button until you hear pc shutdown.then restart...you may have to choose startup in option screen like start with last good config etc but now it will be back on.
Hi, my problem was that I had trouble turning my laptop on. It had been getting worse over the last couple of years. It was suggested that the power button should be replaced. While searching the HP site on how to do this, I ran across a solution that said to take out the battery, unhook anything else that might be connected to the laptop, and then press the power button for around 10 seconds to drain all remaining power out. Then put battery back in and try to turn on. It worked! My laptop now turns on and off just fine! Hope this can help someone else....Linda P
