Question about HP Pavilion dv4000 Notebook
My notebook was fine until yesterday. It will start to turn on and then shut off and keep turning on and shutting off. Tried taking out the battery and using the power cord but none of that helps. It won't get to the start up page. It's about 2.5 years old. No issues until now. Can you help?
No I work on HP's all day, it is nothing to do with the OS or the BIOS. It is a problem with the motherboard fan control, in other words the mainboard is bad even with the latest BIOS update. The CPU is getting too hot, as this happens the CPU gets damaged because the Fox board does not have a temp sensor. So periodically the voltage make kick on the cpu but for the most part the computer will never work the same. The longest I got this dv4000 to run was just under 4 hours with no apps running.
Total overhaul replace board, processor, and possibly the fan.
~Hope this answers your question.

Pc's do something similar when you dont activate windows and ur time limit is up.
did u previously install any software.
did you delete anything thruoghout the day before you closed .
did u close properly.
you can restore by installing windows again
if you need info on this get back to me ,theres a precedure if dont want to lose existing software you may have installed.
if your not too concerned about losing software and data u have stored simply reinstall windows(follow screen instructions)
