  • HP dv7-3085dx power light flashes, but the laptop does not work.

    Hello! I have a HP Pavilion dv7-3085dx. It has a hard drive Bay 2.

    Recently, I bought the caddy + cable kit and an Intel SSD. The thing is, when I plug the sata cable to the motherboard for the laptop, and the SSD to it, the laptop does not light. When I press the power button, it flashes once (the power LED flashes once), but the laptop does not light. When I press again, nothing happens.

    I tried to remove the power supply plug, battery and plug it all again, but the power light flashes once (when you press the power button) and no reaction.

    Maybe it's the sata cable: when I remove the new cable and connect the SSD with the sata cable on the 1 hard drive Bay (the cable supplied with the notebook), it works fine. The laptop starts. And when I connect the former sata cable, with the SSD on the second hard drive Bay, it also works.

    I just want to now what is the flashing light means light? Why it does not work with the new cable?

    Thanks in advance! Sorry for my bad English...


    It is possible that this is a problem with the kit. I would recommend to download and install the latest BIOS update for your laptop, using the download at the following link: http://goo.gl/rbHkg

    If it still doesn't work after that, I would recommend to suppress the kit for a replacement or to try another.

  • Zbook: Laptop does not light

    If it happened today.

    My keyboard is not working all of a sudden (never had it before) so I restarted the computer. During the restart my fans have 100% and the screen shows the signs of hp after 2 minutes. Thought that it was taken way too long so I pressed the power button for 10 seconds and the computer is turned off.

    Now the power button lights up, but the computer is not turned on. The button does nothing, pressed for 1 minute. Actually, it turned into a brick.

    What on earth could cause this? The laptop is not hot at all, and the battery was at 50%, which is usually 2 hours.

    Someone has an idea of what I need to do?

    Well, I tried a hard reset (battery 30 sec) decoupled and that did the trick. Yet, really weird how that did.

  • Satellite L - water damage and the laptop does not light


    I don't know if this is the right forum for this, but I was just wondering if someone could give me some advice. My brother spilled some water on my laptop 3 days ago (argh!). He immediately turned off and won't start up again. I stamped it towards the top as long as I could, removed the battery and positioned in a V shape to try to help dry. It is still not started. When I plug in the adapter, the screen remains blank, but there is a very low humming noise and the lights flash:

    The power light flashes green very clearly
    Battery green LED flashes weakly
    The hard drive LED blinks green VERY weakly

    I'm really hoping that the laptop is not dead and I'll at least be able to recover my hard drive, but it seems unlikely. I'd appreciate really any advice that anyone can give me in regard to what could be wrong or how I can fix this problem.

    Thank you for taking the time to read this.


    I agree with Luke and the best way is to contact you an ASP. They can check the laptop and tell exactly which parts must be Exchange or not.
    On the Toshiba site, you can search an ASP:
    http://EU.computers.Toshiba-Europe.com-online decision-making supported downloads & => find an authorized service provider

    If the HARD drive is not defective, you can backup your data to another PC or laptop as Luke suggested.

    Good bye

  • Server 2008 R2 installation will not configure on DV7 series laptop

    I installed the Server 2008 R2 on a laptop DV7-7012nr. I upgraded the memory up to 16 GB. I deleted all the partitions, and then divide the hard drive into 2 partitions. Partition 1 is 7 442 Go Windows, Partition 2 is 256 GB server.

    When I install, windows server 2008, in dual boot, it will not complete the configuration for the material. This leaves me the choice either reinstall Windows server 2008 and to come back to the same error or return to windows 7.

    How can I get a dual boot for a full installation of Windows server 2008 R2 Enterprise Edition or Standard on my DV7-7012nr laptop?

    After spending 5 days with installing Server 2008 R2 64-bit on this laptop, I contacted the HP Support. Technical support HP and after 4 hours and 7 different technicians, I was informed that they can not help me with the installation of Server 2008 on this laptop. I know it's possible, and I installed Server 08 several times that I can remember. I'll have to this laptop with the conclusion that although HP says that it will work, it will not return.

    Summary; Windows Server 2008 R2 64-bit Standard or enterprise will not be installed on the HP Pavilion dv7-7012nr laptop.

  • HP Pavilion 15-n042se: my laptop does not light

    I have HP Pavilion 15-n042se I have connected my laptop to a TV using hdmi, a mouse and an external keyboard... I pushed the power button on the keyboard to hurt and when I tried to put it on again nothing happened all came down... so I searched the internet for this problem and I found that by pushing the power button for 30 seconds and remove the battery and the AC adapter before that could help , but it does not... I noticed that when the AC adapter is plugged in the laptop light refers to the AC adapter on the laptop is also off

    Dear customer,

    Welcome and thanks for posting your question on the Forum from HP Support.

    If there is no noise from the computer fans, the lights on the computer is on and the screen is black, follow these steps to solve the problem.

    1. check that the computer is powered by the AC adapter.
    2. use another adapter.
    3. remove the battery and boot on power supply only.
    4. remove the AC adapter and the battery start only.

    If the laptop is not on even with a power adapter well known, this confirms the hardware failure with the device.

    I would ask you contact HP support for more information.

  • laptop will not power. No blue light with ad adapter not plugged in.

    Lately, I've been jump the battery in and out to get the laptop (dv6) to propel to the top. This afternoon after a morning's work, the blue laptop ac adapter light does not illuminate and the laptop will not power.
    Naturally, I suspect the battery, but maybe it's the AC adapter. If all goes well, it is not the computer itself!

    Any ideas on what I should buy first. Am on business in Dubai and desperate!

    Thank you

    Solved. Sort of.
    I bought a new battery and everything works as it should.
    The real question now is why stop a bad battery the notebook powered with the AC adapter is plugged?

  • ENVY 15-k008ne Notebook PC: my laptop does not completely turn off


    When I have shutdown/Hibernate / standby my laptop, it will turn off completely.

    All programs will be closed (when stop or restart) and I think that OS will also close. But the laptop will not turn off. Power LIGHT and fan will stay on.

    And when I try to Hibernate, everything is ok, but I have the same problem.

    Whenever I have to turn it off by holding the power button, otherwise the battery will be discharged.

    After manual turn off, when I turn it on again, everything works correctly:

    -If hibernation: OS will continue to last situation.

    -If stop: OS works normally without error or warning.

    After sleep, OS works from the beginning. Because the data stored in RAM and will be deleted after power off.

    Perhaps a portable automatic perevent equipment turned off. All the drivers are up to date.

    Is there a parameter/software to check and fix my problem?

    Thank you


    Try the following.

    Open settings and select System.  Select food and sleep, and then click additional power settings - in the next window, click on "Choose what the power button" in the left pane.

    In the next window, click on "Change settings that are currently unavailable" (close), then Remove the check mark from the box against 'Turn on a quick start (recommended) '.  Click on the button Save the settings, and then close the open windows and restart the laptop.

    When windows has reloaded, download the driver directly from Intel IMEI on the following link, unzip the and run the installer.


    Once the installation is complete, restart the laptop.

    When the machine rebooted, re - activate the quick start and restart the computer once more - let Windows take over completely for a few minutes before checking.

    Kind regards
