Question about HP Pavilion dv4000 Notebook
Laptop - HP dv4000 (dv4040us)
Problem - If I discharge static shock to the side of my laptop it will shut the laptop down. This happens when I stand up and if my jeans touch the side of the laptop and static discharges and a spark comes off the laptop will shut right down.. I am sure this is not good for the laptop..
I do work in the IT Department but I do not work one laptops so I am not sure what to look for when I take the laptop apart...
Honestly, it sounds as if the laptop has some sort of power issues as it shouldn't be creating static. If you are going to take it apart yourself, look for damage to all connectors, especially around the power connection as damage here could lead to greater problems down the road. Otherwise, I would recommend taking it to an Authorized HP Repair center.
