HP Pavillion dv9700 won't power up

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.

    my dv9700 went dead suddenly and now will not power up at all. The AC light is on but no other sign of life. I tried removing the battery, reseating the RAM and holding down the power button for a full minute. I've read perhaps this could be due to an nvidia card problem.

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 HP Pavillion dv9700 won't power up - noavatar_s.gif 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.

You may be able to rescue it with a Bios flash, but it sounds like your motherboard died.

I have a HP Pavillion dv9700 laptop that keeps loosing all power even when its plugged up. The computer will shut off and then out of the blue I'll try it again in a few weeks and it will come on again...


The battery would have become weak. Because the first component that gets destroyed in a laptop is battery. So try to change the Battery and switch on the system.

How to switch on my wireless capability on HP Pavillion dv 7 notebook? there is no switch.


The wireless switch is actually a button located on the media/power bar under the LCD lid. Look on the right side of the bar, it is the button on the far right, opposite side as the power button. Below is the service and maintenance guide, the picture of these components is on page 9.

No power from cord to computer


Hi...

If your laptop is under warranty go back to the manufacturer. If not go to hp center and buy a power cord of your charger which is totally fix to the charging hole.

Good luck

I need to know where the wireless switch is on an HP Pavilion ZV5410US laptop computer


Most HP Notebook PCs have wireless devices built-in. To turn on the built-in device, simply press the wireless power button on your PC which will have the universal symbol for Wi-Fi (shown here on the left) and illuminate with a blue light.
