The same thing has been happening to my tablet lately, as well. However, on mine, that corner of the computer is slightly damaged (from shoving it into my backpack too roughly, i guess). Is your hp damaged? Otherwise, it's probably a hardware problem.

Hp elitebook 2730p I left the tablet on and when I came back the screen was blank. I can't get the tablet switched off or get the screen to work and I think it might overheat if I leave it like this -...


Either your laptop had gone to sleep or hibernate mode. You can set the timers under Power Options on the Control Panel for the laptop to go on sleep mode or hibernate mode if idle for span of time.

You can wake up the laptop by touching the touchpad, pressing a key or pressing the power button.

However, if above options will not work, the only option for you is to press and hold the power button for at least 5 seconds to completely turn off the unit. Try to power on the computer if it will boot up okay.


If you still get black screen, remove the battery and the ac adapter (charger) then press the power button for at least 20 seconds to discharge power in the motherboard. You can now reinsert the battery and power on the system normally.

***NOTE: If the computer will not boot up, the LCD or the motherboard might have failed.

Hope this helps.

My fingerprint sensor on my HP EliteBook 2730p doesn't work anymore. I thought that it was just the driver or software that I was missing since I got it through school and they reimaged it with Microsoft...

Windows XP is too old to have the drivers for it. You will have to reload Win 7 or find out what the password is. Here are a couple of options for you.
That will help with drivers and if it is a Windows password you require;
