Question about HP Pavilion dv5-1150us NoteBook

2 Answers

Hello, I just bought a HP Windows 7 dv5 laptop a

Hello, I just bought a HP Windows 7 dv5 laptop a couple days ago. I installed everything on it (microsoft word, office, anti-virus, etc) and it was working very well. However, I left the laptop on and fell asleep. A couple hours later, the laptop DID NOT TURN ON! I have tried everything, taking both the AC cord and battery out, pressing the power button for 30 seconds and then putting the AC power & battery back in, but nothing has worked. There is definetely nothing wrong with the power adapter as it works well for my other computer. Also, when I press the power button with the AC power connected, a little white light flashes a couple of times for only a second. I also NEVER dropped my computer. P.S. I'm really computer illiterate, so can you make the instructions simple? Thankyouthankyouthankyou SOOO much in advance!

Try this. Disconnect the AC power cord, take the battery out. Then press the power button and hold it for 30 seconds.

Then use AC cord to power it back up.
Let me know if that works.

SOURCE: Laptop won't start

If you can afford it a new laptop will be your best bet. They have really come down in price. I have a Compaq laptop that had the same problem. If I took the battery out and keep it unplugged for a few days it would boot up but only for about an hour then shut down and not reboot until I did the same thing. This has gone on for about a year. I even disassembled it , put in a new CMOS battery and the same. I was just about to give up on it and one day it just started working and has been for about a month now. I'm sure it is going to go back out but it will give me a chance to do some more testing on it. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: hp notebook zd8000 wont power on

In this case i suggest you to remove the battery from the notebook and try to power on the notebook with the help of AC adapter so that you come to know whether the issue is with the Battery or AC adapter. If still the notebook is not getting power with AC adapter you need to take for service retailer store and fix the issue.

Have you tried to boot the laptop with the power cable connected? Is the charging indicator on when you connect it to the adapter? If the charging indicator does not light up, check if your adapter output and try booting it with the power cable connected.

What is hard boot disk

A slang term. The Recovery Disk.

Has the basic Windows files, so you can repair any corrupted files for Windows.
Need one?

If this is in reference to an HP laptop, as the problem title suggests,
(HP Pavilion dv5-2129wm Notebook PC), then here is the method to obtain the Recovery Disk;

The Recovery Disk is free from HP Support.
The shipping, and handling is not.
In the USA the cost is $17 for a 5 to 7 day ship, and $24 for a 2 to 3 day ship.

Go to the bottom of the laptop, and in the white Service Tag, write down the Serial Number. It is S/N.
You will need this to give to the nice HP representative.

Call 1-800-474-6836.
24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

For other countries use HP Support Worldwide,

Put the Recovery Disk in your optical drive.

IF, you want to keep the personal information on your computer, when asked choose Repair. (Non-Destructive Installation)

IF, you want to wipe all of your information off, and return the computer back to Day 1 when it came from the factory,
choose Full Installation. (Destructive Installation)

If you have wiped the old hard drive using the partition command there isn't much you can do if the cd drive will not work. The CD drive being a problem is common in this model HP laptop. I'm not sure that laptop will support Windows 7, you need to check the HP website and see if they offer a download for the drivers for that model for Windows 7, if not you may want to reconsider this change since Windows 7 will not work with Windows Vista drivers. If you did not repartition the hard drive then the recovery or factory installation is still present on the main hard drive. The drive was split into 2 drives. C: which you have always used and D: which holds all the recovery information and installation disk.

I upgraded my HP dv5-1150 us to Win 7 and since then wireless switch is not getting on. I am able to access wired internet though. Please help

The issue might be with the wireless drivers. As you have upgraded the operating system of your notebook to windows 7, the drivers might not be compatible with it. You may have to install the wireless drivers for windows 7

Your cooling fan sounds to have went out,causing it to overheat and shut down.It also could be something in the fan stopping it from turning.Try cleaning it or blowing it out with it off.But it mostly sounds to have went out.

How can I install Winxp on HP pavilion DV5 laptop ?

You're Hard Drive may be dead. If XP is starting to install and then it goes to the Blue Screen of Death, that's most likely your problem. There's a slight chance that you're power inverter has a fluctuating power level that is causing a disruption, but that's very unlikely. Have you done any tests with any boot CD's to check the hard drive's function?

Hello sir

I understand that your notebook is unable to play online videos in a web browser in full screen mode.

Videos on YouTube are streamed through an Adobe Flash player. For the best viewing experience, we suggest you install the latest version of Adobe Flash after removing any old versions you've installed.
Please completely uninstall Flash before reinstalling the latest version.
To uninstall Flash, please follow Adobe's instructions, listed here:
Once you're done, restart your computer and follow Adobe's instructions for reinstalling Flash:
If the instructions above don't resolve the issue please try the following:
  1. Temporarily disable popup blocking software installed on your computer to test.
  2. Allow as a trusted site in your Firewall software.
  3. Ensure other applications like Quicktime, iTunes, Real Player, or Windows Media Player aren't set as the default streaming application, as this might affect the video player.

Windows Vista users: If the flash uninstall reinstall does not work this maybe due to a Microsoft Windows Vista permissions issue.
Please use the Windows button at the bottom left then the search function:
  1. Go to: C:\Windows\System32\Macromed\Flash\
  2. Right-click on the following file: FlashUtil9b.exe or FlashUtil9e.exe
  3. Select "Run as Administrator" and install the update.
  4. Restart your computer.
