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.

SOURCE: HP Pavillion dv9700 won't power up

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.

HP Pavillion dv9700 does not power on


It would seem that the power button is faulty, usually, this is because one or more of the four solder connections by which the switch is attached to the printed circuit has become detached, sometimes caused by pressing it too hard. Rectifying this is quite an intricate job requiring a lot of disassembly and skilled soldering. If you are in any doubt take it to a professional.

Laptop is not working


the only possable problem is the power source. so most likely your power converter box on the power cord has over heated, which is common, its expensive to replace though($70-85). if the problem continues take it to a shop don't try to repair the internal power converter yourself.

I have an HP Pavilion 9000 that was working just fine. We powered it down for the day and when we went to start it up the next day it would not start. Blue light is lit where power supply plugs into...


That a nice computer you have there. Based on your description, my guess is you have a bad power supply.
About a $300 fix if you send back to HP. Which is what I had to do a while back.

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.

My hp pavillion will not power all the way up


What do you mean it powered on to the blue light?
Does anything show up on the screen?
Does the system usually beep when it starts? If so, does it beep now?
