Hp Pavillon 8000 laptop will not power up,

Recently I my hp pavillion 8000 laptop was running very hot to the touch around the touchpad and there was the smell of burning electrical components. I am aware of the heating problems with the laptop and have a cooling platform for it to sit on, but this did not help this time because it was extremely hot. It only took ten minutes before the laptop abruptly turned off. On the other side of the touchpad is the location of the battery, so I wonder if this was the source of the problem. I am aware too of the short term life and the other problems associated with the battery of this laptop (Hp really put out a crappy product and I will never again buy one from them). Now when I try to power up, the blue light on the front indicating AC power comes on, then when I push the start button it will run for about five to ten seconds, then go dead.

This is caused by a circuit breaker in your laptop. when it is overloaded it will kill the power on your computer. you might have a faulty cooling system internally and you need to take it to a shop to repair

Touch pad scroll bar not working


You say it has been restored so I assume that Windows has been re-installed. If so then it is probably using the generic Windows touchpad driver and you need to update to the specific touchpad driver. Go to HP Website and download the touchpad drivers.
