My HP Pavilion Entertainment PC will not turn on. If I hold the power button, the 3 lcd's blink but nothing else happens. I have tried a different charger and that didn't work either.

Unplug the power and remove the battery.
Hold the power button for 30 to 60 seconds.
Reattach the power and attempt a boot.
Shutdown HP Pavilion DV6599 machine and put the battery back in.

If this fails, get a can of compressed air and blow it through the laptop intake ports / grilles
Or take a hoover and vaccuum around the intake ports, see if there is any dust displaced
( overheating issue)

Check the power button is free to move in its holder and is not sticking

After that, It looks like the Graphics chip has unsoldered itself, common on the DV series and will need testing and a reballing

You most likely have a motherboard issue. Try this, remove the battery, hold the power button in for 30 seconds, and try to power up. If that doesn't work, you need to bring it to your local repair shop

MY hp laptop screen stays black and my buttons are flashing


Hi,


This may cause by an electrical charge in the motherboard itself,Im not really sure how it affects the display of the computer.There's also a possibility that the problem is with the LCD cable or the LCD itself. Please follow this method since it usually fix such problem like that,


1.Removed the battery then unplugged the AC adapter


2.Press and hold the power button or the ON/OFF button for at least 30 seconds


3.Connect the power supply back to your computer then turn it back on.


4. Check if you will see any difference.


5. If nothing happens, try to press and hold Fn and F2 on the keyboard.


If nothing happens, there is a possibility that the problem is with the LCD or monitor itself, maybe it will need a replacement...


I hope this information will be helpful. Thank you for using FixYa...

My HP Pavilion Entertainment Laptop won't turn on. The power indicator light blinks briefly when I press the power button, but it does not boot up.


Does the power indicator lit permenantly? If it glows for a short time and then goes off, then it is due to a faulty component on the motherboard and u have nothing to do if you are not a laptop technician. Make a reply for this.
