This issue could be due to presence of static charges on the notebook. To isolate the issue, perform the following steps.

Step 1: Hard Reset

1. Unplug the AC adapter from the notebook PC and remove from any port replicator or docking station.
2. Remove the battery from the notebook battery compartment.
3. Press and hold down the power button for about 20 seconds.
4. Insert the battery and plug the AC adapter back into the notebook PC.
5. Press the power button to turn the notebook PC back on.

This will discharge the static charges from the notebook. Now check for the issue. If the issue persists, then remove and reseat the memory modules of the notebook. You can refer the service manual provided below for information to remove and replace the memory modules of the notebook.

Refer page no: 67 & 68
NOTE: PDF manuals require the Adobe Acrobat Reader for viewing and printing.
Incase, if the issue persists even after performing the steps above, then it is clear that this issue is due to internal hardware malfunction of the notebook and needs an onsite diagnosis by a service technician.

If your notebook is covered under the HP warranty, then I would suggest you to contact HP to get the notebook repaired under warranty from HP.

    Hi, I have Hp pavilion dv7-1247cl and it is a piece of garbage. It was great while it worked but now it is useless. I had it for a year and a half. About two months ago the screen when dark and shut down. When I turned back on it remained dark and the shift key lignt and number lock light started to flash. I had a couple of people look at it and they told me that it was due to overheat. Apparently the AMD Core starts to lift off the mother board due to the heat. The fan cannot keep it cool enough and overtime it stops working. I had a quick fix ($115) by someone that managed to push it into place but I was told that it wouldn't last long before it would happen again. Surely a month later it happened again. I gave up and decided to get another computer. I bought a Macbook Pro 15.4 inch. I love it and I don't think I will ever buy an HP again. I know Macs are a bit expensive but everyone that I spoke to that has a Mac spoke wonders about them and told me that they last forever.
