Laptop won't power up

I have an HP DV9000 laptop. I went to turn it on and got nothing. Absolutly nothing happens when the power button is pressed. I tried removing the battery and holding the power button with only the wall plug in but still no power. Any and all help in this matter would be appreciated.

There's a change the adaptor is broken. I bet the battery doesn't charge as well, does it? (put the battery in, connect the power supply and watch the charge indicator on front, the one with the lightning) If the battery is charged try starting up the laptop without it's power supply. Just the battery.

If the adapter is the one broken, contact HP or the store you purchased on.

My computer will not turn on when i push the power button. the quick touch buttons turn for a few seconds but nothing else happens.

The HP laptops offer happen to these problem after use for more than one year such as can't start up,even can't enter into the BIOS,this is often the power matter , or a big problem for the Mainboard or graphics card Problem .Wish your HP Pavilion dv9000 Laptop problem is only a power adapter problem,that will be a little trouble !

My print screen button doesn't work on my dv9000 and i have tried EVERYTHING

On my HP Pavilion DV9500 with Win7 64 bit (laptop was new in 2007 and had Vista), I have the same problem, and I press FN-insert/scroll key and this works as the print screen button. That's the function key together with the insert key, which is 2 buttons to the left of the print screen key.

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.

Hp dv9000 will not start up. blue lights are go

you get a black screen right, nothing at all then no bios, no logo, nothing at all?
Do you get any beep codes and if so in what order?
did you try different ram?
First try to plug your laptop to an external monitor. If it works, you screen is bad, if it doesn't you probably need a new motherboard.
