DV2058 Randomly powers off

I have an 18 month old HP DV2058ea. Over the past month or so it chooses to randomly power off. There doesn't appear ot be any specific activity that causes it.

I have replaced batteries and AC power supplies. I have reseated the RAM, even swapping the 2 Dimms over.

I have checked for overheating but it is not that hot and is well vented.

But it still has this totally unpredicatble habit of just switchign itself off for no apparent reason, and then when it does there is no guarantee it will be possible to switch it back on and sometimes I press the power on button several times over before it kicks back into life.

Any suggestions or options.

    About 4-5 days ago when I tried to power up the INSPIRON 1300, nothing would come up. It would seem to start for 2-3 seconds then no LED's on at all. I tried many many scenarios (battery out, in, etc..) over a few days but always nothing. This morning as I was doing this search, I leaned over to try once again, and voila, it powered up as if there never was a problem. I'm happy it's working but I wonder for how long?? If it persists is it cost effective to have it fixed, or is a new replacement a better idea? Thanks, Norm

The router occasionally goes off air. Unplugging it solves the problem. It's about 2 weeks old.


Something you may want to check is the temperature of the power pack.
You may also check the Modem's power pack.
I recently had a similar issue with my router, and it turned out to be the modem power pack over-heating and blinking out the modem for an instant.

Black menu-like box randomly appears, covering the picture


This is a problem with closed-captioning. What you are seeing is a closed captioning box with no captioning in it. Usually this is being accidentally transmitted by the cable company "head end". Just make sure your closed captioning function is completely turned off. if you are seeing it randomly, it may well be coming from your cable company. Is it just on certain channels?
