Hi, if you get a 2.5" sata harddrive encloser / cradle and take out the laptop hd and put it into the encloser or cradle he will be able to access his project.Another option is to take the laptop to a repair shop and ask them to reclaim his project .

I also have a HP Pavillion dv9260 , had the same problem, HP help live said the video board, which is an intergral part of the mother board is bad....burnt out...needed to replace the motherboard and they won't stand behind them...I was out of luck $400.00 to repair and stories are that it won't last long even if you do...so here it sit's basically $2400.00 dollars worth of scrap parts........
Kinda strange. Not turning on indicates a hardware problem, you made software changes. If the software changes caused a problem, it would start, just not boot to windows. I would first tryy to reset the laptop. Unplug it and remove the battery, hold down the power button for 60 seconds, then try again. If still no go, start removing hardware one at a time, hard drive, rem, wireless card, dvd rom. You may have a bad hard drive. Your pc should boot to bios if there is no hard drive installed. If that happens, run a diagnostic on your hard drive from your bios. Let me know if you need anything else. seth
I had this problem, because I have had my HP Pavillion Dv 9000 laptop replaced 3 times. There is a recall on those laptops. The mother board is no good. HP fixes the problem at no cost to you even if it is out of warranty. There is also a freeware and software BIOS update that was just released. And if your screen ever cracks there is a recall on that as well with the left display hindge. My solution: Call HP at 800-474-6836 they are available 24/7 365. Make sure you have your notebook Model number and serial number ready.
HP will not cover the repair if guaranty is expired.
Video card on your laptop is integrated on motherboard, and the repairman must replace the whole motherboard to fix it.
I quote : "Only half the screen works the rest is justa grey colouring." that is more likely a problem with the ribbon cable, connecting LCD, or with LCD screen itself, in some case , as said by the repairman , it can be the video card. if the repairman did not open and inspected the laptop LCD display , connector and cables, then the problem it is probably the ribbon cable or the LCD panel. The technician mentioned the motherboard, because that is the most expensive repair service, so that he can cover his back.
Ask a quote to a different technician, see if this can give you different quotes for all possible faults.
