Question about HP Pavilion dv1310 Notebook
My HP Pavilion dv1310us is about 2 years old. Has a good heart, gets the job done, even upgraded it to 2GB of RAM.
Lappy was doing some odd things in the past few months, like not starting unless the battery was removed (bought a new battery in case that was the issue, but it wasn't), then just going "blip" and shutting off instantaneously. The fan works to cool the system processor, so it''s not overheating I don't think.
Now, the problem is extreme, will not start up. No light will even light up. Tried identical power supply from a friend, did not repair problem. Thinking the pin for power input in the back of PC unit, or maybe not a good connection from power to pin or ?? Should the light come on in front (visible if notebook is closed) if power is simply coming into unit, seems like it should but manual says only turns on when unit is on.
Question: have you replaced the RAM by yourself??? do you get the problem before or after the replacement?
if you get the problem after replacement your RAM probably have static groundings... it was get from not demagnitizing your hands and tools before installing a RAM... if you still got the old RAM... clean the contact points and the RAM socket first and test the old RAM to your unit... if you stop having problems just return your 2gb RAM and ask for a replacement...
