Question about HP Pavilion Computers & Internet
Hi, it could be a memory/Ram issue. Unplug your laptop, remove the battery. Find your memory and remove them (if you have more than one stick). Replace each memory card one at a time, turn on and see if it boots. If this works then the memory needed to be reseated. **NOTE** be carful handling the memory cards, static electricity can cause damage. Handle them by the edges. Let me know if this helped.

I hope one of the above solutions worked for you.
Anyone else with same problem- ALWAYS try all the easy simple solutions 1st before you get into any complex ones! Then if simple solutions don't work, try others, but I'd sure avoid opening my laptop and monkeying around with stuff inside!
Usually the the reset by unplugging the power coed and take out battery for a minute works, but there are so many problems that can cause this same issue. It can be caused by a dead battery, or liquid getting into the pc, or an new ap that is causing it. Mine even once had a problem that somehow "pages" in my system folder were locked, though I didn't lock them, but it kpt my pc off til Windows found it's own solution online somehow. Just recently I installed a new ap that made my startup ap keep trying to keep it from running, and it kept insisting, so it took about 4 minutes before pc came on finally, and I then uninstalled that ap fast. As you can see, so many things can make it happen. Be careful what you do to attempt to fix it! If possible, always tell us exactly what you did before that happened. One thing you can try if it happens to you is- do the unplug/remove battery a minute, put both back in/on, and then when you start it up, before it starts loading Windows press F8 over and over til SAFE mode option comes on, pick safe mode, and go find in your system the Control Panel, then "Recovery", then "System Restore". That can take your PC back in time to a day or 3 before present and you lose no data. Pick a time very close to the last time you used the pc, and run that. Often that fixes any problem within the pc itself. I'd never try other things 1st, til I tried these simple things.
Ask your question as a new question if that doesn't work for you, and give us details about what happened.
If you got liquid in it, DO NOT run pc for a couple weeks, and let it dry completely before you try to run it again.

I had the same problem with my hp pavilion dv4 1430 and to fix it I just took out the battery and unplugged it from the power adapter and pushed the power button and waited for a few minutes I put it all back together and started it up and the screen turns right back on.

SOURCE: Powers up but nothing on screen?
I have come across this problem before.
Remove the battery and the power cord. Shut the webbook lid and turn it over. Underneath you will see a panel with screws, unscrew the panel and remove it. Now, take out the memory module.
Underneath the memory module you will see the PCB (printed circuit board) have a very close look for 2 brass triangles, they face away from each other forming what looks like a split diamond. Get a small flat headed screwdriver and short the 2 triangles (hold the head of the screwdriver over both triangles) and press the power button.
Replace the memory, cover and battery and turn on the webbbook.
Hopefully that should sort the problem out for you but you will have to set the date and time.
If this does not work please post back .
