This could be a sign that your laptop is overheating. If you touch the laptop while it is running & you find it too hot, make sure that the fan is running properly & that the air ways are not blocked.
You can blow compressed air into the cooling vents of the fan. If you notice clouds of dust coming out, then it might be a good idea to disassemble the laptop, clean the fan & air ways, & reassemble it back. If the fan has failed & is no longer running, it might need to be replaced.

If none of this solves the problem, or is not the case, then you might have a bad motherboard.

Your video card is going bad. This is a common problem with the HP dv models. The video chip overheats then goes bad, you need a motherboard replacement and when they do replace it they need to add an extra copper shim to keep this from happening again!

Computer turns on, starts up ok... can hear the start up music, hard drive lightworks ok, screen goes black... after 10 mins. when this prob. started.... now it stays on (see the icons) for abt 1 min.- 30...


have you downloaded any new software? it might be the culprit if not try restoring to an earlier date when the system was working properly (like at least 4 wks ago) .. work quick since you only have 1.5 min go to start/all prog/access/systems tools/system restore...note when it shuts down it will boot up auto and you must click okay when prompt

Laptop won't reboot


are you trying to put win 10 on as it can do this some time, can take upto 10 15 min to load, when the like is flashing its dos, when the screen is black its windows it takes some time for windows to find a driver and load it so the screen comes up. i've had this on a200's before. if you keep rebooting you will need to wipe the hard drive and start again. this also does this on win 7 and 8. win xp it does not do this as its full dos setup .
