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.

SOURCE: I have an hp pavilion dv4- 1430 us that won't turn on

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 .

Good luck.

Hp pavilion g6 series

Have you tried another cord/charger with the EXACT same power specs? Has the AC jack, in the laptop, been damaged due to pulling on the cord/charger? Have you tried with and without the battery? Does it power with the battery? Has there been ANY damage? If you remove the battery what does it do? Describe what happens, without battery, when you push the on/off button? Anything? Led blink? Fan spins?

Laptop turns on,then turns right back off.

Start by trying to drain the power from the laptop. To do this, unplug the AC adapter and remove the battery. Next, hold the power button down for 30 seconds. Then plug your battery & AC adapter back in and try to power on the laptop. If the problem persists, try turning it on with the battery removed. You can also try carefully removing the memory from the laptop (located in a covered compartment on the bottom of the laptop that is usually user-accessible with a screwdriver) to see if it will stay on longer than a second. You can also check to see if your laptop is still under warranty here:

Hi, hp pavillion zx5000 will not power on. The power source is good. I have tried it with & without the battery. I tried no batt & ac and holding down the on button for 30secs; holding down the on...

I would try the following steps, then contact HP (if these don't work, chances are it's hardware related).
1) Remove the battery and power cable. 2) Hold down the power button for 3 seconds. 3) Reattach the power cable and battery. 4) Try to boot again.

My HP Pavilion Entertainment PC will not turn on. If I hold the power button, the 3 lcd's blink but nothing else happens. I have tried a different charger and that didn't work either.

You most likely have a motherboard issue. Try this, remove the battery, hold the power button in for 30 seconds, and try to power up. If that doesn't work, you need to bring it to your local repair shop

Computer will not turn on. Battery is fully charged.

this is how i did one the other day and it booted right up, do not turn your laptop on, remove the battery and do not have your ac adapter plugged up to the computer, after you have took the battery out and unplugged the power cord, hold the power button down for 10 seconds, this releases all internal power from the motherboard, after this step is completed do not put your battery back in, plug your ac adapter up to your computer and push the power button and it should boot up. The Hp DV series computers have a recall on alot of the batteries, so you might want to look that up on the HP website.
