Question about HP Pavilion dv2610us Notebook

Hello, My hp pavilion dv2610us will not power up

Hello, My hp pavilion dv2610us will not power up at all. When I have it plugged to the power adapter, the light indicating that it is charging the battery comes on but when I push the power button nothing happens. We have opened it up to check if maybe the connections on the button needed cleaning (and it did) then put it back together & still it does nothing when the power button is pushed. It also has a quick touch strip across the top of the keyboard that used to power up the laptop when touched; it is not working either. The last time that I actually got it to power up, I pusher the power button and nothing, then I tried it again, this time sliding my finger back & forth across the power button and it turned on. The next day I went to turn on the laptop again and it does nothing. . . (as I described above.) Please, does anybody know what the problem could be, and/or how to fix this? Thank you for your time & consideration, dene13

I installed windows 7 and some drivers are not compatable

Did you install 64 bit windows? Something's are just plain incompatible with 64 bit. Your best bet is to try to find 64 bit drivers for whatever doesn't work

My hp notebook just shut off,wont come back on

Sounds like a burnt out capacitor. Either on motherboard or power supply.
You can try taking out battery, press and hold power button for 5 seconds, put back in and try to turn on. If it doesn't turn on, then I'm afraid motherboard is bad or memory card is faulty

I have a hp pavillion. when i turn it on nothing happens, no sound, screen is black. i took battery out and used the charger, but still nothing. do you know what wrong or what i should do?

Are there any lights on the Key Pad. Take out the battery and Power Cord once again and, press and hold the power button for 30 Seconds. Reseat the Ram and the hdd of the notebook as the last step. If nothing works, the Motherboard could be faulty

HP Pavilion dv2500 - FTB

The troubleshooting you have done seems to be fine. It does not seem to be a problem with the power supply,cord or battery.Did you try a hard reset. If there is a reset button on the bottom of your laptop, you might want to try pressing that with laptop plugged in, not plugged in, with battery, without battery and different combinations thereof.
If this does not work or you don't have a reset button read on.

Before assuming it's the motherboard, there is one other possibility. There is a part called a PCA switch. It is possible this switch has gone bad or a plug might have come loose.

If you are comfortable with doing your own work, you can obtain a repair manual for your laptop online. Within this manual, it should explain what is involved in replacing this part. It is really not too complicated.

It does not sound like a hard drive problem simply because it doesn't seem to be getting power to any other part of the laptop.

You can try these steps.
