Question about HP Pavilion dv9308nr Notebook
The laptop turns on but no diplay on screen nor via VGA
I have seen a large number of HP DV series laptops come through our service bay in the last year or so. There has been a larger than normal failure rate on these machines. This is such an issue with HP that they extended the original warranty by 12 months. I would suggest you go to the website below and check to see if your machine is one of the units under their Extended Service Plan.
I have had very good luck talking with HP support about this issue. If it is under their warranty, they require you to ship the laptop to them for service. They pay for shipping both ways. *Backup data before you send it away*.
If, however, this machine is not under their extended warranty, I suggest you start by removing all peripherals. This includes optical drive, hard drive and RAM. Install one stick of known working RAM and try to power up system. If you get a post then there is an issue with the stick of RAM. If you get no post, try the same RAM stick in the other memory bank. If you do not get a POST then most likey there is an issue with the motherboard. At that point you look online for the cost of a replacement motherboard. It might be in your best interest to replace the laptop at that point as the cost of the motherboard and labour to replace it usually exceeds the value of the laptop.
Hope this helps
