May be a DC Jack problem. Look on Ebay using "DC jack repair" in Search. Look for a listing with a money back guarantee. It will cost about $55-100.

Either that, or you need a new motherboard. I hope its your jack.

Hi cgafinest,

I had a similiar issue some months ago. I replaced the power supply and fixed the problem. You may want to try that first.

Hope this helps and good luck.

How do i put a new screen in an Hp pavillion 1435 entertainment pc? the one in there is cracked. do i need to remove the screws first?


Yes. You can also go to the HP website and enter your laptop serial number and in the repair/parts/upgrades section it will give instructions or video on how to perform certain tasks.

Hp pavillion entertainment notebook special edition. keyboard lights come on but display is black


If it doesn't even light up during boot then your back light must have malfunctioned. You will need to get it replaced.
If it cost less than $1000 then i would buy a new laptop

Try Pressing the Function key and the brightness higher key.

I have a crappy HP pavillion dv6000 laptop, after working fine on shutdown last night, i turned on this morning and it would not boot up. the lights on the volume bar lit up, flashed, and went off...thats...


It's acting like the juice is drained in the battery. Are you sure it's charged? Do you have a spare battery you can swap out?

Some of them come with two. I actually have the same series laptop (a Pavilion dv6258se, 6000 series), and they can be a little flaky.

I also had an issue where my HP power cable (that connects the laptop to the wall outlet) was faulty, and needed to be replaced, because it stopped charging the battery. I ended up purchasing a generic replacement power cable on eBay.
