Try this turn on the laptop. even though you don't see the screen lit up it is on. do a simple test .eject the cd tray. now that you know it is on plug the laptop power cord in. turn the laptop vertical with the laptop screen slightly open let it stand up vertical for about 1 hour or more..after time has elapsed unplug the computer and power it off. quickly place the laptop in a upright position close the screen let it sit for one minute power on the device. walla it powers on this not a fix it is conformation that the laptop in question has a AMD chip which confirms the motherboard malfuntioned .buy a new laptop and steer clear of kn-owned defective products .

SOURCE: My HP Pavillion laptop g61 wont turn on or off.

I had trouble looking up that model on the HP page, but you should check this page and see if this model is affected by this NVidia litigation. If it is, you can get it fixed/replaced on NVidia's dime.

Good luck!

SOURCE: blinking white amber light above power cord

The power supply is the issue, or the DC jack in the laptop has developed bad connections, or ram issue. Remove 1 stick of ram and power on, if no! remove second one, and replace the first, power up, if no! test the power supply for proper voltage, if okay! it is a DC jack or motherboard problem.

Remove the battery, Plug in the AC charger. Push and hold the Power on button for 45secs. If this doens't reset. The fault is most likely the System/Motherboard. If the unit is under warranty, contact HP and arrange a repair.

I need Sound driver HP Pavilion DV5234US 15.4" Entertainment Notebook Laptop PC Notebook for windows 7 ultimate

Sorry to said but there are no drivers for your notebook for Windows 7. I suggest you to download from this link previous drivers and use these drivers at your notebook in compatibility mode. This means that before the drivers installation, right click on the installation file, choose properties - compatibility and check compatibility with the version of the drivers you download. For example if you download the drivers for Vista check the Vista compatibility. Note that the Vista drivers are available for 64bit also.

In case of a problem or clarification, don't hesitate to post me a reply before rejecting my answer.

HP Pavillion dv5000 laptop will not load windows.

I had this problem, because I have had my HP Pavillion Dv 9000 laptop replaced 3 times. There is a recall on those laptops. The mother board is no good. HP fixes the problem at no cost to you even if it is out of warranty. There is also a freeware and software BIOS update that was just released. And if your screen ever cracks there is a recall on that as well with the left display hindge. My solution: Call HP at 800-474-6836 they are available 24/7 365. Make sure you have your notebook Model number and serial number ready.

HP Pavilion dv6000 laptop

This can be a Hardware issue.

Try the steps below :

1. Disconnect the AC Adapter.
2. Remove the Battery.
Note : Please see that there are no external devices or cables connected to the Notebook.
3. Hold the Power button down for 30 seconds to 1 minute.
4. Reconnect the AC adapter and do NOT connect the battery now.
5. Turn on the Notebook power.

If the Notebook starts normally, the issue is resolved...

However, if the issue persists, I recommend you to try removing and resating the Memory(RAM) of the Notebook by following the instructions available in the Manual which can be accessed from the link below :

Find the required instructions to remove and reseate the memory starting from page number 128 of 278 in the Manual.

If the issue persists, it can be a Hardware issue for sure.

However, HP had identified some hardware issues with some Notebooks.

Get the Product Number of the Notebook which can be located form the bottom of the Notebook indicated with P/N and check if it is listed in the list available in the link below :

You can get the Notebook repaired for free if it is purchased and currently available in US or Canada.

Find more information about this from the link below :

Hope this helps...
