Question about HP Pavilion dv9715nr
When I turn on my computer it powers up and then powers down it will not boot up and stay up. What would be the cause. I need help...I have tried everything that HP suggested to troubleshoot.
These older HP laptops are notorious for overheating. Heat is the #1 enemy for computers.
If it turns off right away, you could try opening the laptop up, cleaning the dust and lint out and replacing the thermal pads. OR even using good thermal past instead of pads. And use a laptop cooling pad. That should work.
If it turns on but no video then the Video chip needs to be reflowed. The heat has caused the Solder to melt and not make full contact with the motherboard. But this fix usually lasts a couple of months. It's just a bad cooling design, these older computers with two chips, one processor and one Graphics are the problem. The graphics chip especially produces way too much heat for the tiny heat-sink HP decided to put in the DV Laptops.
I've had both a DV9000 and DV6000 and both had the same issue with the graphics chip producing way too much heat. The newer laptops with Intel i3, i5, i7 and AMD A4, A6, A8 chips and the like, have the graphics integrated with the processor and heating is no longer an issue.
In my opinion they are not worth fixing. I would take out the Hard Drive and put it in an external enclosure to pull all your data out. You can then reformat it and use it as extra external drive. I would just invest in a new or used computer that uses the processors that combine both the processor and graphics in one chip.
You can still find the old type like Pentium and Celeron computers but they are slow and still use two separate chips. My 2 cents, and then some lol. Good luck.

SOURCE: hp laptop keeps restarting
If the laptop is not popping up any windows before it shuts down it could be the built in heat protection, you can see if your fan has a lot of dust by turning off the laptop off and then blowing into the area where it pulls in air. If it is popping up a window before it shuts down disconnect it from the internet and see if it does the same thing, if it stays on while discod from the internet then run your antivirus if possibl.

"......no beeps and it is a 3rd party charger for this model of laptop."
That 3rd party adapter could be the problem. Also, try to take out the battery and power it up from AC adapter only.
Ideally, try to find original AC adapter just for testing.

Restart the notebook, press F10 and check if you see the BIOS screen or not.
If you see the BIOS screen and if the notebook does not restart in BIOS then this could not be a hardware issue.
But if you do not see the BIOS screen, then perform the steps below :
1. Disconnect the ac adapter and remove the battery from the notebook.
2. press and hold the power button for 30 seconds
3. replace the battery and connect the ac adapter
4. turn On the notebook and check
If the issue persists then remove and replace the memory modules of the notebook and check it.
If the issue still persists then it could be a hardware issue and your notebook needs to be serviced.

Check to see if the following helps.
Method 1: Unplug any external device connected to the computer except for keyboard and mouse and check if the issue persists.
Method 2: Try performing a startup repair and check for the problem.
Method 3: Try booting in safe mode and check for the issue. If booting fine then you may try the clean boot procedure to find the cause of the problem.
