Ok, here's a couple of long shots to try...
If there is a backup battery remove that also and let it sit for some time with the power switch in the on position (if it has one)
also check the battery contacts are clean. Refit both batteries and try again.
Beyond that unfortunately it sounds like a main board failure. If you have any warranty on the camera return it, if not its likely the cost of replacement would be fairly high but worth checking with HP.
If your handy and fancy a go at it yourself it may be worth opening it to check nothing has become dislodged, but this is unlikely. else pick up a faulty one off ebay, one with a broken LCD or lens and have a bash at swapping the main board out yourself.
A WARNING ABOUT OPENING DIGITAL CAMERAS THEY BITE
Before opening a digital camera its recommended you let it sit for some time (like a week) with no batteries in. There ia a large capacitor (like a battery) which can be charged up to 300v if you touch the contacts or anything connected to it it really is like a shock from the mains.. I have been bitten many times...
This can damage the delicate parts within because of high voltages but more often because you almost always drop the darn thing..
Best of luck

I just read this post about elevating the metal contacts on the outside door with paper & it worked like a charm. Thanks so much for the tip! We just got this camera for Christmas (hand me down) & don't have the money to replace it so very thankful for the advice!

First, stop plugging it into the computer. Next, remove the card and battery, press all the buttons, leave it alone for 20 minutes, insert the card and then the battery (which I'm assuming is fully charged), turn it on. To download your pics in the future, use a separate card reader.
