There could be a few issues here, but try the following

  • Check that the power cable hasn't got any visible wires or that you can see/hear sparks. If this is the case, you need a new power supply.
  • Take the battery out then try to turn on the computer. If this works, there is a issue with the battery and it will have to go to warranty
  • Check if the power connector in your laptop is loose. If so its a warranry job
If all of these are fine, then id have to say its your motherboard, which will need to become a warranty job (if you don't have warranty, this can be costly, worst case scenario it will cost what the depreciated value of the computer is)

So weigh up your options then choose your next step after trying the above solutions

I won't shut down my laptop


Why is it exactly that you wont shut off your lap top...? I've actually hear that leaving you lap top on constantly is ok for the unit. I myself constantly leave my lap top on all the time and have had no issues with it. Hope this helps Shannon

Hp pavilion Dv 7 won't power on even when the lap top is charged.


Pull the battery and plug it in to the wall (in other words rule out the battery). If it still refuses to come on, check out this troubleshooting link:

First 2 of your problems are due to the fact that your laptop enters hibernation (or hybrid sleep in windows 7) and windows cannot restore your last saved state. The 3rd problem indicates you have windows problems (bad/not updated drivers, filesystem corruption, application issues). I would suggest you to reinstall windows.

Is it under an extended warranty or even under a 1 year warranty?
That's unfortunate that the power button has fallen off and the hinge is hanging by a wire.

I would have it repaired at an authorized repair shop for your make and model.

I wouldn't try to use it in that condition, it could be dangerous electrically.
