Re: Hp Pavilion Entertainment PC won't power up...
Hi, I have a similar problem with my HP Pavilion laptop. If the answer to the previous questions had been a "yes" in terms of things working once the battery is pulled out and put back in, would that indicate that a new battery is needed?
I have an hp dv2000 running Windows Vista Home Premium. When I leave the PC running and step away, and it automatically suspends, upon return, the laptop won't "wake-up". I try a hard power-down and it shuts off, then when I press and hold the power button to get it to come back on, all the lights come on but the screen remains dark and I don't hear anything spinning up.
When I shut it off again then, and flip it over, take the battery out, and put the battery back in, it starts back up again (with the safe mode options).
Any thoughts on what this is?
