No Boot. HD Checked OK. New MB. Suggestions?

HP Pavilion dv2120us PC won't boot up. LCD is pitch black. Checked HD in another notebook- works fine. Power LCDs are on, but I do not even heard HD spin when in this notebook. Replaced MB - same effect. No sounds, no squeaking. Any ideas?

I was able to boot the system, but while it was going through disk clean up, it shut itself down and now I can't get it to boot up again.


check internel HD first (very possible it is OK).
you can spend around $10 to convert internal HD into external usb HD, if you have 2nd available pc/notebook then you can easily verify it.
if it is OK then you got more serious problem.

I have an hp Laptop DV3515ee works fine. One day i started it up and it shows me the manufacture logo at boot up and shows the Microsoft boot Screen Looks fine from that point. after the boot screen ends...


The problem could be a damage to the MB by excessive heat produced by Nvidia GPU. The only way to fix this permanently is to take out the MB and reflow the GPU with heat. You can find a video on youtube how to do it. You must take out the piece of gel between GPU and cooling unit and replace it with copper bar or penny made prior 1983 - still made out of copper. Also clean the fan. Use heat transfer paste like arctic cool - not a glue, on both sides of the penny. Install win7. Win7 does not use the coprocessor and will help to ran the notebook cooler. Install speedFan 4.40 - free utility to see what the temp is of your GPU and CPU. If you did good job it will stay around 55C. If your HP notebook is still running check the temp. If the GPU is running 80C or more it will melt the connections on the MB and quit working sooner or later.
