Question about HP Pavilion dv9000z Notebook
My laptop boots but after a few seconds it completely shuts itself off.
my comp keeps P**** me off, i restart and it wont boot up, the lights come on, then it shuts off, then boots up, nothing on the screen (again) then shuts down.
I cold boot it a couple of times, eventually the screen comes up and its fine
like wtf? lol why does it do that, i have no virus's
If you haven't tried it yet, pull the battery out and try booting from the adaptor only.
If it boots normally, then your battery pack may be bad (shorted cell) or the regulator that has the job of charging and monitoring the battery pack while keeping your system running may not be healthy.
If you own any multimeter (at the cost of Chinese DMMs, everyone should own one), check the battery pack for charge. Under normal conditions, they should measure a couple of percent higher than their rating. You will have either Lithium Ion or Nickle metal hydride batteries in the pack so should measure some multiple of the nominal cell voltage of one of those types that are respectively 3.6 & 1.2 volts.
