Question about HP Pavilion dv1000 Notebook

HP Pavilion DV2036e Wont Boot

Laptop wont boot.
When it started I did a little research so took the battery out thinking it may be static, just replaced the power lead then tried it and it worked - until a week later when this failed too. Now I turn it on and the power light comes on, the fan starts for a second and the CD drive tries to read but then thats all the life it shows, nothin at all on screen, no noises.......nothin. I have also tried to reseat the ram to re-establish connection but have had no joy. Could this be a safety measure from the fan or is it usually something more serious?

    as long as i leave it- it will stay on (if plugged in.)

    the battery life however after the time ive had it doesnt hold much charge so it would then only stay on for about an hour on just the battery.

    i have an hp dv2214us laptop. My computer will not start up completely. I took the ram, battery and hardrive out, then restarted it, then put everything back in and restarted it. It starts to read the disk and all the lights come on, but then it stops and there is just a blank screen. At first i thought it was a faulty battery because I did get it to power up and read one time with it just plugged into the wall. When I tried to do it again it went back to just reading then not fully booting but all the lights remain on. PLEASE HELP ME I need my computer so bad because all my school work is in it.

Firstly it started for a little while then kept turning on and off. Without the battery it won't turn on but shows red light. It's an e-systems laptop.

Try removing battery from laptop then with battery out connect laptop to the mains using the power lead only without battery and see if laptop will boot up. Sounds like battery is needing replaced.

My Laptop wont start properly. It just starts, shows Toshiba The leading Innovation message and goes off. I then get a blank screen with a cursor at the top left hand corner. Power cable is working,...

This could be a failed hard drive. As soon as you turn on the computer, go into BIOS (I think you hit the F2 key on Toshiba systems) and check the list of IDE or SATA devices. If you do not see a hard drive model number there, that is your problem.

If you do see a hard drive, you may be able to get it to work with a System Recovery CD. It may have been corrupted by a virus or power failure during a write operation.

My T2300 wont boot up,I was trying to take a memory card out of the slot and the AC power outlet came out and the laptop came off. Now it wont boot up

Try removing the battery from the base. There is a sliding switch that will unlock it for easy removal.
make sure there is no power coming to the laptop.
Press and hold the power button for 5 seconds.*This should drain static from the motherboard
plug JUST the power cord back in.*To prevent any battery issues messing everything up
Press the power button.
If it boots you can put the battery back in.
* On my posts, i will try to explain what everything does for people who want to know

I have a laptop that does not boot up with the battery on. When I took out the battery, it boots up. I wonder what the problem is.

Here you can try the power drain
For the power drain you have to unplug the battery and power cord from the laptop
then press and hold the power button for 40 sec without battery and power cable.
After 40 sec connect only the battery back to laptop, then try to turn on the computer, if its turing on then it happened only because of the excess the static power

Still having the issue then u have to update the BIOS from the website
Then provide the serial number to the website and then download the latest BIOS and flash it.
you will be reciving a readme file where u can get the details, how to flash
Hope this will fix the issue

When i Power up my Laptop it wont boot!

Ooooh! That was not a smart thing to do.You may have shorted something out.

Try this:

Make sure it is unplugged.
Remove the battery.
Remove the hard drive again.
Hold down the power button for at least 60 seconds.
Replace the hard drive. Make sure it is seated properly.
Try booting.

If the power light comes on but the laptop will not boot you may have fried your hard drive.
