Question about HP Pavilion dv5-1125nr Notebook

2 Answers

My HP Pavilion dv5-1125nr entertainment PC Notebook was working fine and I shut it down properly last evening. This morning when I tried to turn the laptop on the power came on and the fans are on but the screen remains black. I have blinking lights above my numbers lock key and a blinking light next to me caps lock key. These lights are not on or blinking when the laptop powers up properly. The laptop is a year and half old so it is no longer under warranty. The HP assistance line suggests I mail it back to them and have it repaired for $400. They had me take out the hard drive and put it back in. They also had me attempt to remove the battery press the power button and then attempt to restart. None oof these steps have revived the screen. Is there any hope? Does this seem like a video card issue or a mother board issue.

Try hooking the laptop to a desktop monitor. This will verify what is failing. If all works, then you have a bad LCD screen. If you get the same problem, you have a motherboard problem which is probably not worth fixing.

Save yourself alot of grief. Purchase a PCMIA or USB modem and your done. A very inexpensive fix. I am a certified HP Master tech and I will tell you that HP does have some consistent problems withg their modems. If you can spare a few bucks go to www.driveragent.com and try to locate an updated driver.

It sounds like a power supply problem (low voltage), or could be a battery going bad. Also, the vents to the cpu fan could be clogged up and overheating the cpu, causing it to shut down. You can spray the vents and area out with compressed air. Other than that, it will have to be serviced.
Good luck and hope this helps.

I have an hp Pavilion Entertainment pc that has sounded an alarm at 6:00 am the last two mornings. What is this? Hp couldn't help me.


If it's not an alarm you set, it may some sort of malware. Run a spyware and virus check on your computer and see if anything comes up. If not, open your Task Manager (on the Start menu, click Run, type "taskmgr.exe" and hit Enter) and look under the processes and services tabs to see if anything resembling a clock or alarm program is running. If it is, and it's something you don't want or need, end it.

I suggest you return it if it is still under warranty for repair.
It appears that one or more of the operating systems files has been corrupted and needs to be repaired/replaced.
You can try to do a systems repair with the Windows CD and if this doesn't work you will have to reinstall the Windows. Make sure you have the recovery Cd because it contains the drivers for the devices installed on your model laptop.
