Hp pavillion dv2000 laptop has no windows n turn off need help to fix some help please

Please explain what is the problem. What you are saying makes no sense. What happens when you hit the power button? Does it boot up? Do you hear fans running, hard drive spinning, see lights?

Hello, that sounds a motherboard problem...
Try to do this first :
1- take the battery out and disconnect from power
2- press and hold the power button at least 10 seconds
then put only the power cable not the battery and try to boot...
If this dont help...your motherboard needs to be repaired or replaced.

I have a HP Pavillion dv9500 series. One night i tried to watch a rent movie, at the first 10 mins of the movie the screen frozes, alt+ctrl+delete doesn't work so i pushed the power button and then when...

If the Computer turns ON and the CD/DVD drive gets power then first, remove the disc from the drive. Then, turn off the Computer, disconnect the AC Adaptor, remove the Battery pack and clean the metal contacts on the Battery and in the Battery compartment.
Next, press and hold the power button on the Computer for 30 seconds.
Then, reinsert the Battery pack in the Computer then connect the AC Adaptor and turn the Computer ON.
This will resolve the issue.

Good luck!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

HP Pavillion dv9700 won't power up

Try removing the battery and using only power cord to turn the laptop on. If that fails, try turning it on without power cord, just on battery.

If none of those work, then most probable cause of your problem is motherboard. Hopefuly you are either under manufacturer warranty or you have extended warranty with your vendor where you've purchased the laptop.

If your laptop turns on on power cord, but without battery, then battery is the problem. Also, if laptop turns on when it's only on battery but it doesn't when you plug ac cord in it, then the adapter is the problem.

Pavillion wont work with battery

Hi there,
First, I recommend you to try removing and reinserting the Battery when the Notebook is turned on and powered with the Power Adapter.
I recomend you to first clean the Battery Connectors by removing the Battery and use a Earbud to clean the Metal Connectors which connect to the Battery to remove any dust which is peventing from the Battery to supply the required power to the Notebook.

You can find some related topics related to troubleshooting issues related to Batteries in HP Notebooks from the links below :

Additionally, you can download and install HP Battery Health Check SP3229.exe and check the status of the Battery by following the instructions.
Hope this helps...
