Laptop keeps shutting down immediately after trying to power up

Check the battery ..If the battery is not capable to keep power anymore..this will happen ..but the shut down will not be instant ..if it is instant than to blame is the cpu cooler ..probably it does not work anymore..and teh cpu gets to teh max temperature right the way and shuts the system down ..To fix that is to replace the fan ..
another thing that you may check is teh ram memory ..sometimes if you make changes on them and they do not match perfect with the rest or so makes issues on boot up .Just remove them all and try them one by one if they are more than one ..This way you will knwo if one is defective ..cause will not try to boot up ..If non seam to be affected ..just plug them well and start over cause it is possible to be just a matter of not making contact well and after you remove and place them back work perfect

Why does my screen only brighten when the ac adapter is unplugged on HP Pavilion dv8000?


That cause by setting at Power Management setting. If your laptop setting is default, LCD back light is 60% if you running on battery and 100% when running with plug in. You also can change a setting at :

1- Go to Control Panel
2- Go to System & Security
3- Go to Power Option
4- Change Plan Setting

No power at all when i try to turn it on

If the CPU (Processing unit) is not switching at all, then first thing you can check is your RAM.
Switch of the power supply and unplug the cables. Then open the top cover (or whatever your CPU has) of teh CPU and remove the RAM from its slot and install it again (place it in its slot as it is). Or if you have 2 slots for the RAM and only one RAM installed then try installing (placing) the RAM in the other slot which is empty.
Plug in all the cables and switch the power supply. This method works most of the time.
Gud luck.

Hp motherboard startup problem!!

hmmm my sussgestion in yourr case is that, don't attach all things at once. do the following step bye step.

Step 1). Attach SMPS (power supply to the board), Front Panel Connectio, and an in built speaker and CPU (don't add RAM, HDD, FDD, VGA Card or any thing els)

Power on and watch/Listen carefully:

Case 1: if you can hear a long beep, then your CPU and board is OK

Case 2: No beep means CPU or board is faulty. Try to Reconnect CPU again and do step 1.

Step 2) Now power off and add RAM only.

Power on and watch/Listen carefully.

Case 1: if you can hear the ok beep it means till now your RAM is Ok
otherwise clean your RAM connection and add it again.

Further you can add your VGA, HDD CD-ROM/DVD, PCI Devices etc. and easily short-out your problem.
