Question about HP Computers & Internet
Its a notebook.
step 1: remove the main battery , run now on the line pack?
step 2 is BIOS screens if they are dead, then the screen is dead.
DV95000 has CCFL back lamps that fail, most this old have.
do the fish light trick next
the bios key is F10, it prompts you every time you turn it on
so if it stops prompting, you lost power, or the screen is dead
BIOS works even with the HDD removed.
does the fan blow , battery out, and power pack plugged in to wall ac power?
does it beep (sounds) or flash Caps lock keys? if yes those are codes. (Morse like codes)
what does this mean,?
"I can still see that my lcd lights up."
you mean LED,s'
get bios working,

SOURCE: Auto restart without warning
go to control panel>administrative tools>event viewer and look in the left hand listings at programmes etc and see if there are any red crosses or exclamation marks to give a clue as to the problem, but if you know it's not overheated and you have'nt recently installed any other software and recently scanned for virus and spyware it is probably a driver problem.

That beeps indicated that there is a problem in the video Graphics adapter and in the memory.
try remove and clean the memory and then fix it back, im sure that would resolve your problems. however if this not solve then your should replace the memory.
If affraid to do so, then maybe let the repairman do it for you.

This issue could be caused by any of the below possibilities
Software issue or error.
Hardware issue or error.
Heat related issue.
Issue with operating system.
Software issue or error
Errors generated by software programs can cause a computer to reboot unexpectedly or without warning. If you are running Windows XP see the below section "For Windows XP users" before continuing.
If you are not running Windows XP or following the below steps still cause your computer to reboot without warning. Boot your computer into Safe Mode, and let the computer run in Safe Mode.
If the computer is still rebooting in Safe Mode the issue is likely not software related but something else, skip to the next section. If the computer is not rebooting in Safe Mode it is likely you have software related issue. We would recommend you run through the basic troubleshooting section for your operating system.
For Windows XP users
Windows XP is designed to automatically reboot each time an error occurs such as a BSoD. Although this may be nice for errors that do not occur often, users who have a re-occurring error may wish to identify the error to troubleshoot it. Below are the steps on how this feature can be disabled and enabled in Windows XP.
From the desktop right-click on My Computer.
Click the Properties option.
In the System Properties window click the Advanced tab.
In Advanced click the Settings button under Startup and Recovery.
In the Startup and Recovery window uncheck the Automatically restart check box.
Now if the computer generates and error it should not automatically restart and enable you to display any errors your computer may be experiencing.
Hardware issue or error
Any failing hardware component in your computer could cause your computer to unexpectedly generate an error and/or reboot without warning. If you have recently attempted to add a new hardware device, remove that device to make sure it is not causing your issues.
Make sure you are not encountering any hardware conflicts by viewing Device Manager for errors.
New drivers can also cause this issue, if you have recently performed any hardware driver updates you may wish to try an earlier version of the drivers.
If you have updated drivers and removed any hardware that could be causing this issue and continue to experience random reboots, it's possible that the memory is bad in the computer.
Finally, hardware devices that are not installed properly in the computer can also cause random reboots. Make sure all the cables and expansion cards are connected properly to the computer. The best way to determine this is to disconnect and reconnect all cables and expansion cards.
Computer viruses such as the blaster virus are written to reboot your computer without warning. Usually these viruses will make the computer reboot ever 5, 10, 15 or 30 minutes after the computer has booted.
If you believe your computer may be infected with a virus or are uncertain if your computer is infected with a virus make sure your virus scanner definitions are up to date.
Heat related issue
Many computer today are designed to turn off or automatically reboot if the computer, processor, or other device in your computer gets to hot. If you have heard any abnormal noises coming from your computer recently such as a high squealing this could indicate a fan may be failing in your computer.
You can first start by verifying the fan on the power supply is working by examining the back of the computer and seeing if the fan is moving and moving smoothly. For all other fans in the computer you will need to either open the computer and make sure the fan are working (processor fan and case fan) and/or if your BIOS monitors the RPM of the fans enter BIOS and make sure the BIOS does not report any errors.
Users may also be able to determine how hot their computer is by onboard thermal sensors, if your computer comes equipped with these sensors make sure your CPU is not running to hot.
Issue with operating system
If after following each of the above recommendations your computer still continues to reboot it is likely that you are experiencing a Microsoft Windows operating system related issue that cannot be explained. To help make sure this is the case please try the below steps.
Reboot the computer and enter CMOS setup as the computer is booting.
After you have loaded the computer in CMOS setup let the computer sit.
If the computer does not reboot while letting the computer sit in CMOS it is likely that you are in fact experiencing an issue with Microsoft Windows and it is recommend that if you have followed all of the above recommendations that you reinstall your version of Microsoft Windows.

I have the same model after youlet it sit for a long enough period to cool down it will come back on and work normal, it is a cooling problem called gateway and they confirmed this theproblem I ran in to was what fan this computer has 3. temp fix I used was to remove the tower cover to allow better air flow try this till you can figure out what fan is messing up

There is a software called "SpeedFan" which you can download here
This software will tell you the internal temperatures of the computer (so you can figure out if overheating is the problem). Most of the time overheating is due to excessive dust inside the laptop. The best bet is to get a can of compressed air and clean the inside out. This does require some disassembling of the system, so if you are not comfortable doing so I would advise you to take it to a local computer shop.
Another solution would be to purchase a "Laptop Cooler", this will lower your temperatures anywhere from 5-10 degree's, but can get annoying to lug around with you. You can view some laptop coolers here
If you happen to run the Speedfan application, let us know what the temperatures displayed as, and I can tell you if it is running too hot!
