Question about HP Computers & Internet
SOURCE: Power Supply
Recommend the Coolermaster IGreen PSU to replace the inferior and faulty PSU in my Pavilion t461. I bought from eBuyer and fitted perfectly with a bit of persuation. Very quiet and comes in varies power outputs. Good review at http://www.overclock3d.net/reviews.php?type=3&id=81&page=1&desc=coolermaster_igreen_power_430w

Before you go thru all that, HP has an extended warranty for 6 and 9K units with Video and Power startup problems.
They have added an extra year to the original warranty and it would be to your benefit to check first.
Email customer care and issue a repair request.
You can chat with a tech and find out in no time yes or no.
If you log a issued complaint, they may review it in your favor.

When we talk about laptop won't boot up it is a hardware failure.
First of all, most of the hardware failures that are going to be presented in this article require you to disassemble the laptop and work on its internal components. Because of this, you need the required components to take the laptop apart (such as screwdrivers, etc.) and space, lots of space. If you don't have a workbench, then working on that large table in the living room should do it.
Second of all, you need to be extra careful about ESD (electrostatic discharge). Sure, this is important when working with a desktop system too, but you really shouldn't consider this as some sort of overreaction or waste of time. A few anti-static conductive bags should suffice. These are going to be useful when you take apart components from the laptop and you need a safe place to put them down.
If the laptop does not power on using the batteries, then try to power it using the AC adapter. Pay attention and see whether the LED on the laptop lights up, signaling that the adapter was detected. If yes, then your power jack works. If the notebook still does not power on, disassemble the laptop and remove the batteries. Look first for the CMOS battery and take it out.
Your best bet is that the problem is memory-related. What you need to do is re-seat the memory modules. If there are more than one, then try swapping them between each other and try different slots. Try booting again. If it does not work, then try running with only one module - this way, you can tell whether one is faulty.
Disassemble the laptop and remove the HDD, CD/DVD drives, and the modem and/or wireless card(s). If possible, take out the sound card module (if separate). To minimize the possible causes, you may disconnect the LCD panel as well. Try running this way. If it does boot, then try connecting each connector one at a time, booting up in between to localize the problem.
Good luck and take time to do a hard troubleshooting this trouble is not easy as well. You need to be care full in removing the some parts so that the other will not affected and being damaged.
