Hook up a extrenal mouse and see if it still does it. If not, get into windows and check your power save options and make sure its not going into standby. Windows defaults to Three minutes on laptops and it may be going into standby.

If it blanks out with all the lights still on, try pressing the power button once and see if it comes on to where it was before. If it does, its going into power save.

These options are in the display settings which you find by right clicking on the desktop and selecting properties in the little box, it will open a box with tabs. click on the screensaver tab and at the bottom it has a button for power options, click it and change settings accordingly, also make sure the screen saver isnt set to come on after like a minute, usually you want it for 5-10 for a laptop and you only want power save options set for when its on battery power.

Also make sure that it doesnt have it set to go into standby when you close the lid.

My mouse is frozen on my hp dm4 and the orange light in the left hand corner is not on, nor will it turn on when double tapped


First thought is look at the top of the touch pad, there is a button. Push this button once and see if the mouse works. HP put this button on to deactivate the mouse if needed.

If this does not work, plug in an external mouse and see if it works, if not do a hard boot on the computer and try the mouse again.

I left my hp on the bed , running, and it is not responding ........what could be the damage


the dv and tx series are very poorly designed, they can't keep the internal electronics cool enough to run properly (even under ideal conditions they will fail in just over the warranty period) with the vents obstructed cooking your motherboard becomes a near certainty.

if you really need to get this machine to boot up again (eg to rescue files before it is completely done)
step 1 power down completely (you can hold the power to off for a few sec or unplug and pop the battery.)
once system has cooled test to see if it can boot. If the lights and fans all come on but the screen stays black... (warning u should never try this with a healthy pc) ..
then
turn on pc (lights come on but nobodies home, no boot, no post, no nothing) put the pc into a bag or case (whatever you would carry it around in should work)
let it run for about 30 min or so (it should be really hot now)

try booting again.

it might just be superstitious but i have found that holding down the f10 key while booting seems to help. good luck
and don't buy HP unless you want a half-*** product

I have a hp pavilion dv 1659 us (dv 1000) the sata drive goes bad


It will recognize the new drive if you were able to "migrate" your data from the old drive. If not, you can clean install by booting from an optical drive (changing your boot order at start-up) and using a new OS disk or your recovery disks. You might be able to perform a remote partition & format and install from one drive to the other with USB external enclosures for each drive and another computer (depending on the 100G drive's condition). I hope this helps.

Black screen will not boot up


I had the same problem with a dx6000 series-here's what I did:  

1- to get it to boot I would start it and hit ESC, F!, F@, F# etc randomly-then shut it off- when I restart it boots.
2 - I took it down to the mobo (not that hard -you'll find how using Google).  I reseated the processor and took the power port off and reseated that as well-

Everything works like normal now-how it lasts.
