Yes! HP are well known for motherboard issues, remove main battery and power up, if no change swap out the ram one at a time, sometimes this will do the trick, if not! you will need to get it assessed for repair.
It sounds like your power supply is not charging the battery and the battery is dead (enough to try to turn on, but not more than that). check the power adapter output with a volt meter. Make sure the battery charge light is on when the power adapter is connected. if all looks good there, try removing the battery and turning the unit on while plugged in. if none of these work, post a reply here to this solution.
Is it not powering on or are you getting a blue screen? I know the dv9000 series had a problem with the motherboards, where the lights come on, but the computer doesn't. In that case, the computer will have to be sent back to HP.
Follow the link below, read about this problem, and then call the special HP phone number. They are repairing these computers under a special enhanced warranty policy, even if the regular warranty is expired. Good luck!
Sounds like the harddrive went bad.
Some people call it the click of death.
Put the laptop to your ear near the harddrive and you will hear the clicking coming from there.
Good news is that it's easy enough to change the harddrive.
Bad news is you lose all your data to this point.
I hope this helps and i'm sorry that happend to you.
Ok the problem lies within the software. You may need to update the driver. Yes drivers tell this device added what to do. So log onto HPs website, download the updated version. This should help, if this does not help it then becomes hardware, which is better off leaving alone do to the expense.
