Question about HP Pavilion dv9000z Notebook
My hp laptop will not boot up. the power is there, but the dvd drive light flashes and a network port green light flashes but gets no further with nothing on screen. what would you suggest. many thanks
I'm sorry your are having this trouble. I don't know if this will help, I usually like to start with basics. You say your DVD light is flashing ... Remove anything that may be in the drive. You say the NIC is flashing (a good sign) remove the cable if wired, turn it off if wireless. As your computer starts up, press the F8 key (XP) to try to get into safe mode. If this works, try to do a system restore.
If this is not good, you may try a bootable CD if you have one or can get/make one. If yours has or has access to a floppy drive, you could try a sys disk to see what is going on.
There will probbly be others along shortly to give you their ideas to help you with this.
I hope your computer returns to life soon. Thanks for posting at Fix.Ya.com and please vote.

SecureEasySetup (Orange/White) The Cisco logo is the Router's SecureEasySetup button. It
lights up and will stay orange when the Router is powered on. The color orange indicates that
the Router is not using the SecureEasySetup feature, while the color white indicates that the
Router is using the SecureEasySetup feature. When the Router enters SecureEasySetup
mode, the Cisco logo will turn white and start flashing. After the Router has generated
the SSID and WPA Personal key, the Cisco logo will stop flashing and stay white.
To clear the SSID and WPA Personal key, press and hold down the Cisco logo for five seconds.
The Cisco logo will flash slowly as the Router resets itself. The Cisco logo will turn orange to
indicate a successful reset.NOTE: SecureEasySetup is a feature that makes
it easy to set up your wireless network. If you have SecureEasySetup devices, run the Router's
Setup Wizard CD-ROM and follow the onscreen instructions to use SecureEasySetup.
Power (Green) The Power LED lights up and will stay on while the Router is powered
on. When the Router goes through its selfdiagnostic mode during every boot-up, this
LED will flash. When the diagnostic is complete, the LED will be solidly lit.
DMZ (Green) The DMZ LED indicates when the DMZ function is being used. This LED will
remain lit as long as DMZ is enabled. WLAN (Green) The WLAN LED lights up when
the wireless feature is enabled. If the LED is flashing, the Router is actively sending or
receiving data over the network. 1, 2, 3, 4 (Green) These numbered LEDs, corresponding with the numbered ports on the Router's back panel, serve two purposes. If the LED is continuously lit, the Router is successfully connected to a device through that port. A flashing LED indicates network activity over that port.
Internet (Green) The Internet LED lights up when there is a connection made through the
Internet port. A flashing LED indicates network activity over the Internet port.
