This could be a couple of things. Start by checking the memory. Make sure they are seated properly and didn't slide or shift a bit in the fall or the sudden stop at the end of the fall. Then remove the memory and try them one at a time. A bad memory chip is the number one cause of this. If it still won't start, then I'm afraid that you may have damaged the motherboard. HP seemingly has the most fragile motherboard on the market. I've had two HP laptops through my shop this year that were dropped, one while walking through the house on carpet, and the other from the sofa cushion to a carpeted floor. Both had hairline fractures in the motherboard, both ran for a period of time until they heated up a bit and the motherboard expanded, opening the crack. One would continue to run if you let it cool overnight, but then would stop again after heating up. The hairline fractures could be seen when holding the motherboard up to a bright light. If the memory checks good, then you may want to take it in for a professional diagnostic, they will be able to tell you whether it's the board or a replaceable component.

My hp dv9000 wont start,even with the battery or with the charger IS PLUG it doesnt still start up.THE LIGHTS WILL JUST BLINK FOR JUST 2 SE4CONDS AND IT TURNS OFF AGAIN.

Unfortunately it sounds like your motherboard is toast. The DV9000 and the DV6000 use prmarilly the same motherboard and these have been fraught with problems that HP has been unwilling to fix. The good news is these are relatively easy to replace with a good guide, basic tools and patience. Below is a link to the service guide that will help with the disassembly....

Hp pavillion dv9000 screen

You have an Intel-based laptop (sounds like it).

The failure is due to the vram on the mlb (systemboard). Good news is this is a common failure for the Intel's and is readily fixed, prob is the vram and nVidia chip need to be reflowed using a BGA machine (about the price of a Lexus).

Without a viable repair option, you'll need to replace the mlb. Part# located in the memory bay (middle cover underneath the laptop), and expect to pay upwards of $450 from HP for just the part. *** BEWARE getting this part from a 3rd-party vendor, as they may NOT have reflowed the chips and have the issue resolved

Hp pavilion dv9000 blue lights on won`t boot stuck just cli

Sounds like the harddrive went bad.
Some people call it the click of death.
Put the laptop to your ear near the harddrive and you will hear the clicking coming from there.
Good news is that it's easy enough to change the harddrive.
Bad news is you lose all your data to this point.
I hope this helps and i'm sorry that happend to you.

How do i get my hp to work?

It could be that the switch that closes the notebook might have been broken on the impact. See if you can turn it back on again. Then go into the control panel and find the settings that control the switch on your notebook computer that activates when the lid is closed. Set it for disable or no effect. Sometimes there listed in you power settings.

HP MD6580N Rear Projection TV

I have exactly the same problem with mine.

HP refuses to help and no TV repair person will even bother coming out if I tell them my TV is an HP because their service for parts and tech support is brutal.

Can anyone help?
