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.

Keep getting disk read error, have tried other fixes for updates but nothing works


Shut down, unplug, remove battery, plug in, try to boot normally. If that fails, unplug while running, wait 30 seconds or so, plug in, that should cause the Boot options menu to come up, select safe mode with networking. post results.

After pressing the power button, my HP dv7-1129 laptop only stays on for about 2 seconds and then shuts off. I completely replaced the DC cable and now it receives power, but it does not boot up. What is...


Hello,

try taking the battery out, unplug the DC cable and hold down the power button for 30 seconds this will get rid of the static on the motherboard which could cause the problem.
After you have done this put the battery back in, then the DC cable then try to turn it on.

If not it could be your battery because you are getting an indication that you are receiving power, try taking the battery out and just plugging in the power cable.

Hope this solves the problem.

The power lights on the lap top are blinking every 5 seconds and the screen is blank


lights blinking means your laptop is restarting after every 5 seconds. Your lappy might have gpu( graphics processing unit ) dry solder connection problem. I would get it looked at because it could also be a heat problem
