Question about PC Laptops
Hi, my HP Pavillion dv9700 won't do anything. When i press the power button the blue keyboard lights at the top come on, the hard drive sort of clicks a couple of times (electrical clicking because the drive doesn't spin) then the lights go out and thats it, Can anybody help please. Thanks.
TRY HOLDING DOWN F10, F12 BEFORE YOU TURN ON THE SYSTEM, WE ARE TRYING TO GET IN THE SAFE MODE TO CONTINUE IN WINDOWS TROUBLE SHOOTING GUIDE, REMOVER THE BATTERIES AND UNPLUG THE SYSTEM TO FORCE IT TO TURN ON IN SAFE MODE THAN SELECT THE ONE MOST LIKELY SOUND WHICH ONE WILL DO THE BEST JOB FOR THE BANG.

I tried the solution #1 and it works for me. However before of that I take out the flat battery from the motherboard, the power cord, and the rechargable battery for almost 2 minutes and when I put all back again I tried the solution #1 recommended by RODGANDYSR and it works. I recommend to do the same for those who have this problem.

Try removing the battery and using only power cord to turn the laptop on. If that fails, try turning it on without power cord, just on battery.
If none of those work, then most probable cause of your problem is motherboard. Hopefuly you are either under manufacturer warranty or you have extended warranty with your vendor where you've purchased the laptop.
If your laptop turns on on power cord, but without battery, then battery is the problem. Also, if laptop turns on when it's only on battery but it doesn't when you plug ac cord in it, then the adapter is the problem.
