Question about HP NX9010 Notebook

1 Answer

Will not power up, no fans, post code or display

PC was running normal on ac power and I assume went into hibernate mode. When I came back to it and tried to power it up, all I got was the caps,num,keypad lock, power and wireless lights to flash on then off. Now it's locked until I press the reset on the bottom, then the same lights. It charges fine and the battery is fine. I reset the ram, battery and hard drive and the same problem. Because I never get a post or the fans to come on I am suspecting the motherboard. Do you aggree?

    No! There is a reset switch on the bottom to I assume to reset the bios, or cmos. The pc never boots at all. The lights mentioned only flicker then the laptop is dead. Pressing the reset switch allows me to try to power it up again. I found a thread on the HP site which talks about this problem and its a short on the MB. They say to press here or lift there and the laptop boots. I am having no luck trying. I do believe I have a short, which is why the lights only flicker then the laptop hangs. I will try to remove covers and boards to see if anything changes. Thanks for the reply, it is truly appreciated. It is this brain-storming that will lead to resolutions.

    I tried and the same result. The previously mentioned lights flicker on/off and it's dead. I can't access the bios, I don't even get a fan to turn. There must be a short???

When you say you press the reset button you mean the power button right?
I assume you just press it and pc restarts...
instead bootup to as far as you can get then press and hold power button until pc turns off then reboot ..you should now be able to access the point where it says windows was shutdown incorrectly or interrupted options to restart normal or last good config etc..
if it doesnt you may need to reinstall windows

    dont press the reset button.

    take out the battery ....disconnect power lead..

    wait a minute and replace battery and power lead press power button to boot .

    see how far you get and if not boot up press and hold power button until it turns off then press power button again to boot.

    can you access bios?

    I have recently uploaded a file (spotmau)which you create a bootdisk and write the files to it and then you can use it at startup to diagnose and repair many problems .if you send me your email I will give you the link to download it if you want.

My HP compact nc6000 laptop went to Hiberating mode and i don't know how to fix the problem. If i could please get help that would be great. i just got this laptop yesterday. it was working but all of...


Hi Jessica,

Hibernation mode usually turns the computer off but saves any work. Then you would start it back up by hitting the power button, it will boot up and you log in like normal and the computer should be as it was before it went into hibernation.

If you can't get it out of hibernation by pressing the power button, try holding the power button for 5-10 seconds. The laptop may actually still be on, and holding the power button will cut if off. Once the computer is back on you can change the battery options(hibernation/turn off settings) in Windows by going to the bottom right task bar and right clicking on the battery icon. Normally you will have an option like "power saving settings", "battery settings". In this setting window you can turn off hibernation due to inactivity.

Let me know if you have any questions.
Regards,
G33k

Hibernation mode


First thing to try is to remove the battery and disconnect the AC adapter. Press the power button for a full 10 seconds to drain residual power from the capacitors on the board. Give it 5 mins then put the AC adapter and battery back in and give it a try. You might also refine your hibernation settings - I had a 5000 which is similar and finally turned hibernation off. Also check for a pin switch that the lid pushes down when it closes to see if something is holding the switch down when the lid is raised. I dont remember if that model has a mechanical push switch or a magnetic. Magnetic shouldnt do it but mechanicals are very prone to getting stuck.

My laptop has went into hibernation and shows a small moon and that the battery is in use. I took out the battery and it still shows it in use. It won't come out of hibernation and won't go back to...


The moon means Sleep or standby mode, if the laptop attempted to enter hibernation and sleep mode at the same time it could just be stuck in a hibernation loop and unable to load.

To test this, remove the battery and AC adapter, then hold your power button down for thirty seconds. Once you've done this replace the battery and power cord then try turning it on.

Let me know how you make out and if it doesn't work provide any other details you can including anything that comes on the screen and any beep codes you hear as it fires up.

Thanks and good luck,

Chris

Inspiron 1000 keeps going into hibernation when plugged in


Does your laptop really shut down or is it going into hibernation mode. The way you can check is to enter the control panel and click on the power options. You will find power options for both battery and AC operation. Listed there is the time that the computer will run without any input before it goes into hibernation mode. If you wish to increase that time, just enter a different time. Or you can choose the "never hibernate" option.
See if that works for you. I'm assuming that your computer is just sitting there with no activity when this happens. If this is not the case, then we have to do a bit more troubleshooting.

NX9010 will not power up


I would try taking out the battery and make sure the AC adapter is unplugged, then press and hold the power button for 30 seconds. Then plug in the AC adapter and try to power it on. Otherwise, since you are not getting a POST, the common issue would be a motherboard problem. Not a absolute. Sometimes removing the ram then trying to power on may cause it to POST. It won't make it past that of course, but it is also is a good test. Hope this helps.

V5000 won't turn on now from hibernation mode


you might need to check your ac adapter and power outlet first before blaming your motherboard.
you go to hibernate mode because the battery is low. the battery is low because you ac adapter isnot supplying power to battery.

Desk top won't display-hibernation mode


Hi,

Based on your post of failure to boot due to hibernation, you can try removing the battery and AC adapter connection for an hour or so. Thereafter, insert battery back and charge but don't power up. Allow the laptop to charge for a couple of hours. Try powering up/booting. Press F8 to start in Safe Mode. Once in Safe Mode disable Hibernation.

If the laptop still fails to power up, then it may be entirely another problem.

Post back results. Good luck and kind regards.
