    hey friend I have been on google for about an hour now looking for a simpler way to solve this problem. its caused by a power failure.
    if you have your battery out. while the computer is turned on and you unplug it. this will happen. its some saftey bs. how I get it to work again is by taking off the door to expose the ram underneath the wireless adapter.
    there is a watch battery remove it and your bios resets and ur computer will work. you might need to re configure ur bios again. and ur system clock.
    my computer will not boot with the function. sata native support enabled. if ur computer refuses to load after removing the battery try disabling that.
    if you are unsure about where the battery is.
    its the middle door. underneath the wireless adapter. the wireless adapter will have 2 antenna wires connecting to it. and be held down by 2 screws.
    remove this and u will see the battery. remove the battery and put it back together.

    took me forever to figure this out.
    enjoy ur working again laptop.

    Tarek,

    Although in some scenarios resetting the bios may solve your problem.. In most cases the problem is your video card which unfortunately is integrated into the motherboard. The video card will not post (show a display) because it has failed. This seems to be a relatively common problem in the DV5000 to DV9000 range of hp laptops. I have ran into 3 identical scenarios in the same week, and one of the new motherboards did the same thing after one day. Supposedly one of the main reasons that the video cards in this particular series fail has to do with the heat from the processors heatsink passing across the video card.

    • hi, friends,
      please better contact between the heat sink and chip set, as well as the heat sink of the processor , replace the thermal pad between the chip set and and heat sink. Usually it works.

    you can follow the step to solve this problem
    1) remove battery and hdd cd rom and just plug the power adaptor
    and press power on switch for 20 sec and then remove the power jack and re plug and power on if it solve the problem it great or go to step sec
    2) remove ram (memory) and just clean with eraser this problem 50 to 60 % coming due to bad ram or bad ram slot or dust on ram slot if it solve ok
    3) if this do not solve the problem then if you are technical guy you can open the laptop just dismental all laptop remove cpu cmos battery ram hdd cdrom etc and keep open as it is for 5 minuts and repack the laptop hope this will solve the problem if still no joy then this is a mother board or ram problem you get to a laptop service center to get solution you if your laptop is under warrenty do not open the laptop give to company for repairing

  • I have been having the same problem with my dv5000

    I've removed both the main battery and the BIOS battery and put them back in place after a few minutes. when I push the power button I get a screen asking to "Press F1 to continue, F10 to setup".

    If I press F1 it goes to a blank screen and does nothing, If I press F10 I get into the BIOS and I can change any values I want to and save them but when it tries to reboot it does nothing and just sits at a black screen, no beeps or start up screen of any kind.

    I'm thinking it is a bad motherboard at this point in time.

    Thank you, Redbay

  • Just had a similar issue on my coworker's HP Probook 6460b (blinking power light, no startup), we pulled out the ram card, cleaned out the dust with compressed air, put ram card back in, plugged in AC Adapter and left battery out, and held power button down until computer started. It worked!

  • What I did that worked great was pushed power button 40-50 times and then held the button down for a min or so and plugged it back in and it started working again
