Question about Computers & Internet

6 Answers

My HP laptop will not power up or recharge. Fan comes on for a few seconds and then it quietly dies. Have checked and resited all obviously safe things to do that with but no go. Does it have a secret battery like old apple pcs that needs to be changed to make the machine live again? That is only similar problem I have ever had.

Have you tried to replace the battery with a different one and see if the battery isnt at fault

as it has been seen that sometimes the battery backup of HP pavallion notebooks

reduces to very low values( just 30 sec of back up)

Its either the carger or the battery. if you checked the charger and its good then it must be the battery pack which is dead and no longer holda any charge. so check the charger and try replacing the battery

That is an hardware problem.

A thing that you can simply test is the RAM.

Remove vattery and unplug adapter first.

Open the RAM door, there you should find two modules. If there is only one you need to test with a replacement module.

Try removing one of them at time, and starting the laptop with one module only.

If it starts, then the module that was out is faulty.

A faulty motherboard will also give you the same problem, but that must be replaced by a technician.

Hp g8ooo turn on for two seconds then goes of


Check charger power supply, are you getting voltage? Otherwise, I'd try to boot into "safe" mode probably f8. Try a Disk check. If problem continues, even in the safe mode I'd go to install disk and try a repair (without loss of data) option. Hopefully you have backed up just in case. If you have backed up and still have problems you may want to do a "fresh" install, but that entails reinstallation of all software. Not fun. Good luck. I find tomshardware.com quite helpful.

Could be overheating. Check if the fan is running all the time (it should, somtimes fast, sometimes slower, but always running)

Download CPUID's Hardware Monito *it's free" and install it from here:

http://www.cpuid.com/hwmonitor.php

After you install it, check the temperature of your CPU. It should never be higher than 70 C. If it is, then you have an overheating problem.

Check if you can see dust or lint inside the laptop.
If you want to clean it up to be on the safe side, do this:
1) Power down the computer and unplu the power cord.
2) Remove the bottom cover (you may need to remove the rechargeable battery too)
3) Blow compressed air into the bootom of the laptop and check that the fan can move easily
4) reassamble everything and power the computer back.

No power to computer. Battery cable recharger led lites up


If the cable and battery are good, you will need a tech. Taking apart a laptop is a touchy thing. If you are an electrician, you have to take it apart and test the wiring...but I warn you, parts in laptops are not made to come apart and go back together many times...connections are like paint, and wear of with a few reconnections and it's easy to permanently break it.

Hp v6630em fails to start when the "on" button is pressed. It is connected to the power supply and the blue lights are illuminated. I can hear a whirring sound for a couple of seconds and...


This sounds like either a fan or CPU/motherboard problem. Either one is going to be expensive to fix, the fan less so than the CPU ($15-20 vs $100-$400).

However, before we assume that the laptop is dead, remove the battery and attempt to boot up just using AC power only. If the problem persists, put the battery back and remove the AC power, and try booting up just on battery. If the problem happens either way, it's the fan or the CPU/motherboard/.

I know this isn't what you wanted to hear, but that's what's happening. A decent local repair technician (not a big mass-repair place like Geek Squad) should be able to replace the fan with labor around $50 or so. The CPU/motherboard replacement will run at least $100-$150 in labor, plus cost of parts.

Obviously, try the fan first. You can pick them up on eBay and that way you won't be charged "extra" for the technician "finding" the fan for you. You should only have to pay them labor costs.

Obviously, if the fan doesn't fix the problem, it's the CPU/motherboard. At that point, I'd cut my losses with the fan (maybe even relist it for sale on eBay) and go buy another laptop. You'll pay $300-$500 just to fix it, or you can buy a new one for not much more, with warranty.

Hope this helps you out - I'm here to answer any additional questions you might have :)
