The 1st thing to try is to make sure that the outlet you are plugged into has power. Try plugging in a lamp or fan or something and ensure that it powers on.
2nd some power packs have a seperate power cord from the power pack that may come loose ensure that it is plugged in tight if you have this model of power pack
3rd is to check the power pack you are using. The easiest way to do this is with a volt meter if you have one. They output in DC so ensure that you have it set to DC on the dial. If you do not have a volt meter check if there are any lights on the power pack that should light up when it is plugged in. If there are no lights on the power pack then there is not much of a way to check the power pack without a volt meter.
The last thing it could be would be the charging or power circuit of the motherboard. This would only be able to be diagnosed by a certified repair technician. If the laptop is still under warranty you will want to contact HP to have this checked.

check by removing the battery then put it back again power it on, or without battery power it on directly then check, if still the same problem, the fault is in the motherboard of the laptop, better take it the service center or consult some technician in your area

Hp dv5-1002 laptop will not turn on. I've tried removing the battery. but wont turn on at all.


This could be because of a loos RAM. I would suggest you to take the laptop to the HP Pavilion Service Center. And If the issues is same as what I suspected, then the service center might be able to fix this issue in just 10 minutes and they might not even charge you for this. Please note, only go to the authorized HP service center.

I bought HP Pavilion dv5 6 months ago and fan not working


Your cooling fan sounds to have went out,causing it to overheat and shut down.It also could be something in the fan stopping it from turning.Try cleaning it or blowing it out with it off.But it mostly sounds to have went out.

Have you tried deleting the wireless card from the hardware manager and then rebooting? It should reinstall it upon reboot and rewrite it's config file.
