    I have the identical problem. My HP Pavilion notebook (dv9000) worked a couple times yesterday, but started seizing up and now will not power up after shut down. As yours, mine will try to come on but after about 15 seconds will shut down and try to restart in continuous cycles. I noticed there was a Vista upgrade that automatically downloaded the night before... not sure if this caused it, but I think HP knows of this issue. My notebook is 2 years old, and now they tell me I am eligible for a one time "Limited Warranty Enhancement Program", and they are sending me a box to return to them for a free service of the problem. Call them: 800-474-6836 maybe you will get the same deal.

    I just became aware of the HP "Warranty Enhancement" announcement/link:

    exact same problem - tried taking out memory and re-inserting, and taking out battery and turning on without - same problem. boots to black screen for about 10 seconds and then dies. but sometimes it comes up fine - what do i do!?

    any error messages or beeps ?

    might be worth taking out the ram chip and reinserting it....I see a lot of these types of problems in dusty environments

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.

I was loading bios update for Toshiba satellite when it hung when I tied to reboot all I got was a blank screen the lap to is completely un responsive and occasionally bleeps can u help?


Hold the power button down continually until it shuts off. After a few seconds, try turning it back on. Mine has pulled a few tricks like that.......Mine last year automatically changed a command in the boot sequence and I had to take it to a friend to get it figured out.

Why does startup repair keep popping up on my laptop when i turn it on my sony laptop


This is the system error and it comes when the user doesnot shut the comp in proper way.//
it can also come if due to some reason the comp is shut automatically//
to get rid of it try last known good configuration.
shut down the comp// restart and immed start hitting f 8 cont to get the advance boot menu//
select LKGC and once that is done hopefully your computer will boot perfectly//

Laptop boots then shuts automatically off


Try this, if you have a fast hand, the second it boots, push Ctrl+Shift+Esc and end taskeng.exe.
If you can't do it fast enough, try booting into safe mode, going to scheduled tasks, and removing any suspicious ones.
If you don't know how to boot to safe mode, push f8 until you see a screen which allows you to choose safe mode.

Will not start up


If it's not beeping during the first start up then it's not POSTing.  Beep means everything connected to it seems to be functional ie PnP  
Try pulling out your memory and reseating it.   Try pulling out your battery for 5 minutes then plug in ac(without batt) and see if it will boot.  Try pulling your hard drive and reseat.  (access by covers on bottom...dont be scared. Touch something that's grounded just before you remove) If all this and still no full POST(with beep/s) then sounds like a new mobo or processor.

Problem During Boot-Up


several things it could be but im going to look at the obvious the battery and cord hook up
laptops when plugged into contstant 120 power the battery is supposed to go into stand by mode and shut battery off so power dont leak into battery
if you have low battery with it plugged into 120 the comp will still think the battery is powering the laptop if battery dead then comp shuts down lack of power

other thing is somehow you caught a virus that reboots comp from dos screen mode
the main thing i always ask is what was the last thing that happened before it did what its doing now
example= was there a power surge pop up screens ect.

Re boots itself


when you turn on the pc keep pressing F8 and it will boot into safe mode. When in safe mode highlight the option 'Last Known Good Configuration' and press enter. The pc should now reboot normally, if not you will need your installation cd to do a system repair.
