check by removing the battery then put it back again power it on, or without battery power it on directly then check, if still the same problem, the fault is in the motherboard of the laptop, better take it the service center or consult some technician in your area

Computer will not start up on power up. Computer does a system check with all L.E.D. lights, cooling fan starts, empty cd drive bay does a system check. The computer hard drive will not start and the...


notebooks, battery out first, just take it out the leds mean zero.
there is no LED that can tell you a battery is ok,

did you?
if that fails.
next is what, BIOS
get the BIOS screens up. (my guess its DEAD) not even text or HP logo.
if not the pull hdd,dvd and all ram but 1 stick.
and all usb jacks empty , unload it.
fails now. then the Power pack is bad
you do know packs can be, good, bad or weak right
19vdc is good, 10 not.
see?

the GOAL on ALL PC's get BIOS UP.
take no hdd , no dvd to do that. ever
once it works we can move to booting any OS>
we can boot to 5 things on my laptop, even SD,mem.
try to think this way
if the Power pack is 65w+ and 19v
then remove all possible shorted devices from the PC.
strip it down. if it runs now, (means BIOS wakes up an screen)
test 2 on all LT
is the rear VGA jack will run a external screen if the internal is suspected.

black screens only can be CCFL dead.
if it has that.
i cant hear you hdd spin/
nor see the eject work work on the dvd
if the PC self shuts off, that means the power supply has issues
the Power pack bad , the MOBO regulators are in overload
and shut it down (called shorts on devices)
this is normal action on any regulator..... normal for shorts./

My hp dv9000 will not boot. when power is turned on all leds light up screen stays black. hard drive and fan can not be heard. restarts after 10 seconds with no error message or flashing lights.


Remove the hdd cover from the bottom and make sure it is completely seated and connected. If the hdd is properly installed and it still will not boot, try entering the CMOS Setup. If you can enter setup you most likely have a bad hdd. If you can't you need to take or send the pc to a repair shop.

My mom has a Pavilion 513n desktop. At boot up it


you're receiving a "No POST" issue. It could be any base component in your system. Strip it down to the bare basics. Power supply, motherboard, RAM, CPU, fans. HDD. Then start removing those components until you receive an error message. You'll be able to figure out which part needs replacing from that.

Hp pavilion dv2000 notebook will not boot up


Go to this Hp website for you could have a grapgics chip fault. One way to test is to plug a VGA monitor into the VGA outlet port on the upper left side of you laptop and start it up. If you get a clear display you have a screen problem - next step remove the external monitor and again boot up but in a darkened room to see if your backlight is off - if you can just see the HP logo in the back ground then your backlight has failed or more rightly - the backlight micro switch under your R/H hinge has failed. A cheap fix. If there is no display external or TFT your Nvidia graphics chip has failed. m/board replacement required BUT you may qualify for free m/board replacement under Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0cm 5.4pt 0cm 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0cm; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-ansi-language:#0400; mso-fareast-language:#0400; mso-bidi-language:#0400;} HP Pavilion dv2000/dv6000/dv9000 and Compaq Presario v3000/v6000 Series Notebook PCs - HP Limited Warranty Service Enhancement go to this site below to see if you qualify

New HDD inserted into Pavilion ZD7000 - will not boot from XP CD


Try your old HDD in it and see if that works. If it does work then nothing is damaged except your DVD drive/Controller. Try putting the new HDD in another computer, installing windows then putting it back in the HP. If all else fails then flash the bios with an updated image and see if that rectifies the problem.

HP Pavilion DV1000 doesnt start up.


The unit is not finding any boot drives and is trying to boot from a network.

Make sure no disks are in a floppy or cd drive, and if so, remove and try to reboot.

You may have a dead or troubled hard drive.
