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

My HP dv2000 shuts down and does not turn back on. The power cord is connected but the charging light is not on.


Your DC connector on the system board is loose:

Problem symptoms:

  1. Laptop randomly shuts down without any warning.
  2. Power LED and battery charge LED start flickering when you wiggle the power cord or the AC adapter tip on the back or your laptop.
  3. The battery will not get charged.
  4. When you plug AC adapter, the laptop appears to be dead and there is no LED activity at all (DC-IN jack on the system board is broken).

If it is under warranty, HP will repair it. If not , read this:

remove battery, press and hold power button for 5 seconds, then wait 5 minutes, put battery back in securely and try again. If it powers on, try and look at the power meter to see if it is registering the power supply. You could have faulty memory chip or faulty power supply

I have a hp pavilion dv1000 laptop and it randomly hibernates


Go to the control panel > Power Options, click on the hibernation tab and uncheck it. Click on apply and ok. Hibernation can damage older HP systems such as the DV1000 that is running XP, make sure it is turned off and also go through the power settings and change the setting for closing the lid on the laptop. Change the setting to "Do Nothing". This will keep your system from getting corrupt.

Fujitsu Siemens AMILO PRO V3515 - keeps turning itself off


This is the classic signs of a Virus.
You need to recover your data, format and re install your operating system.
If your computer suddenly switches off when you move the computer arround then it could be
your Power Jack that is faulty. Check diagnostics at: www.powerjackrepair.com

Battery charging


Does the machine boot and work just on AC?

If it does then you may have a bad battery - Does the old battery charge?

If it does not work on AC then try another AC adapter - even the generic universal kits should be enough to test it.

hopefully that's all thats wrong. let us know.
