HP Pavilion dv7 turns off!

Initially, I was trying to get my blu ray DVD play.  I downloaded another drive and uninstalled the HP mediasmart dvd.  It did not work so I deleted the new player and went into the system to an earlier time restore and did.  After I restarted my computer, it started randomly turning off the coast and by that I mean the screen.  It turns black.  I click on enter or left clidk mouse (it seems he invites) then after 5 seconds or if the lights on the right side start to Flash and the display returns. It's already happened and I forgot the solution.  Also, my battery died a month ago so I removed it.

Thanks in advance!  ccrossland5


Hi ccrossland5,

Welcome to the HP Forums!

I would like to take a moment and thank you for using the forum, it's a great place to find answers. You have the best experience in the HP forum, I would like to draw your attention to the Guide of the Forums HP first time here? Learn how to publish and more.

I understand that once you have done a restore, your computer screen will go out randomly to a black screen, but you move your mouse or press on enter the display will return in a few seconds.

It seems that the computer goes into a sleepmode, when you press a button, that it wakes it upward.  Here is a document on Management of power (Windows 7 and Vista) Options to help you. It cannot identify your exact model as you he did not, but the instructions will be the same.  How can I find my model number or product number

If you're still evil try this.

In the search bar run type command prompt.

Right-click on command prompt and select run as administrator.

Type powercfg /restoredefaulstschemes press ENTER, if this does not work try a hyphen rather than the / the depends on the operating system, you're running.

Please let me know the results and have a good day.

  • HP Pavilion DV7 turns off suddenly when running

    I sincerely hope that you can help me or point me please in the direction from where can I get support for this problem.

    I bought a HP Pavilion DV7 - 3180us Entertainment Notebook to the United States in 2010.  I now live in England.

    My problem is that my laptop keeps turning off randomly without warning.

    Is my product number: WA718UA #ABA, my OS is Windows 7 64 bit.

    I ran each test component (HP System Diagnostics), all items sent with the exception of the hard.

    My test log shows the following error codes:





    PLQ36M-53L6M6-XD002J-60 CT 03

    My BIOS:

    F.1D, 10/05/2010

    I bought and tried a new battery, but this does not resolve the issue.

    (Any time), I use a Cooler Master NotePal U3 Laptop Cooler with fans positioned where my laptop gets hotter (down the laptop, when the laptop is in its normal in good position, the hot zone going from the upper left corner (about where is the power button), to down to about the caps lock key; the width of the side left on the F3 key). (This also does not resolve the issue.)

    I'm looking forward to your reply.

    Finally got support from HP (for some reason, my phone and my other half phone just kept to end the call when I tried to call, even if we had enough credit, could finally operate using Skype as Skype allows free 1-800 numbers even if you use Skype from the United Kingdom).

    In case it helps someone else out there he said:

    Only the fact that I have recently updated my BIOS would help with overheating problems. Any overheating problems that I knew could not be due to (for example) the motherboard or graphics card, etc. That it may be wise to have my radiator and fan replaced.

    Mainly: (no surprises) should I have my hard drive replaced ($155 - $200).

    For a person living in the United States the total costs (disk hard, heat sink and fan) would be $ 200 to $ 300 (cost of labor and shipping included).

  • Pavilion g6 turned off and will not turn back on

    My g6 kept turning off unexpectedly, and now it will not even turn around.  Help, please.

    The fire being orange means that the computer is "charge" of the battery.  If it is always orange and never goes back to white then there is something wrong with the battery because it is not that it is fully charged and the continuous computer to keep it loads or not related that she stopped.  This could be a battery problem or a problem with the computer loading mechanism.  It's probably more with the battery what either.  If you can get the computer to boot with the battery and you can get the HP utility Center to open, you can have it run a test on the battery and give you information about your battery.

  • Pavilion 23xi: turn off the power of the icon of the Pavilion 23xi monitor

  • HP pavilion dv7 - 4283cl keyboard shortcuts to turn off the system


    I have a client who has a "HP Pavilion DV7 - 4283 CL Entertainment Notebook"; as such, she stated that she allows to turn off his laptop by pressing CTRL + RIGHT ARROW keys (three times).  Now all of a sudden she said that this does not work.  Being a tech since 1980s guy, I have a good amount of stored keys combo; but it is a new in the drop-down list and the show.  Someone at - he already heard of this combo?

    Thank you


    Hi Jim,.

    Welcome to the HP Support Forums, I hope you enjoy your experience! To help you get the most out of the Forums of HP, I would like to draw your attention to the Guide of the Forums HP first time here? Learn how to publish and more.

    I saw your post on the CTRL + arrow keys to the right as a shortcut to stop. I never heard that either. If it uses Windows 7 maybe she hit the Windows instead of CTRL key, because if you press Windows and then right arrow would sleep to highlight and the Enter key could put the laptop to sleep. It's the only thing I can think of.

    Thank you

  • HP Pavilion dv7-1269us stopped himself turn off reboot screen black

    My HP Pavilion dv7-1260us went 'pop' and turns off.

    I hit the power button. The LEDs (sound, WiFi, etc.) in line with the power button all came on but the screen stays black and the fan was running.

    I turned it off. I turned it on with the same results. I unplugged the AC and the battery. I repeated several times and the results have remained the same.

    With the battery and unplugged HQ, I held the button for 30 seconds. Re-installed the battery and AC with the same results. I have also repeated this process several times. I also did this procedure with only battery reinstalled with the same results.

    I opened the DVD player and inserted the CD 1 of 2 restore disks. Then I turned on the computer. The fire came what is on the DVD player door then spun it and the light went all the time that the screen was black. I repeated this process with the same results.

    I always get a black screen with all led on/autour lit keyboard lights and the fan runs whenever I try to start.

    In addition to the led lights is lit, a flashing white light is to the left of the "caps lock" key and a 2nd white flashing in between the "end" and "page up" keys every time.

    Any ideas?

    Can anyone help?

  • Pavilion dv7 - 4183cl laptop turns off its own

    My Pavillion dv7 - 4183cl laptop turns off its own without any warning or error messages and then restarts asking power on the passsord, etc. I am running Windows 7 Home Premium. Occurrences are more frequent over time.

    The first thing I would check is your laptop fan. You hear it works while the laptop is on, or it is disabled? If the fan fails, the laptop overheats. To protect themselves, the laptop turns off. It could also be that you have little dust blocks the air fan. The best option is to have someone to disassemble the laptop and clean, but some people have managed with the help of compressed air. The problem with this is that it blows back into the laptop. Perhaps vacuum?

    A farily common problem with most laptops is the integrated graphics processors. Over time, the GPU becomes disattached from the motherboard. If this happens, the laptop will be closed or does not start at all. Generally however, there isn't a lot of attention if that is the case, the computer stops working one day.

  • HP Pavilion Dv7-4285dx Entertainment computer laptop Wont stay turned on

    Alrighty this is one video of my HP Pavilion Dv7 - 4285dx Entertainment Notebook Wont work video. Basically, I can't understand what was lacking on this wise material issue (and if its even possible to distance just buy a spare part) or so badly need to buy a whole new computer altogether. Already have a portable game, but I'd rather have this laptop specifically for the armed forces when were allowed to use our computers civi make calculation on projects say. Any viable solution to possibly rebuild the machine, tell buy spare parts would be epic, but I can't determine what is the problem with it on my own.

    It may make more sense to look at the video that I can show what the machine is doing when I try to use it. Video--> http://youtu.be/KO4LAP2mJNM

    He's fine, the jist is that the machine is not turned on. The power LED flashes quickly, the F12 key light flashes quickly, light flickers hard drive read/write and the power on the portion sparkles. Also the battery is removed the iron on if this is a battery issue, I've already pulled out it is not not a bad adapter block. Regarding the power light, it's a constant light to solid white'.

    Someone at - it ideas?

    I understand that the system is off almost instantly after having turned it on.

    Based on the symptoms and the video, it looks like the motherboard has failed.  There are only so many components that can cause this problem.  The battery and Charger AC/DC have been rejected.  The laptop seems to receive a continuous power supply because the light stays on.  You could try reinstalling the RAM it could be just loose enough to trigger a security breach.  I doubt that is the case since that RAM in laptop computers is guaranteed to be generally quite good.  The disk HARD and WLAN module would not cause these symptoms.

    I know that's not the answer you are looking for, but the symptoms do not match that of a failed motherboard.  You could look into this and compare it to the costs and benefits of a new laptop.  Page 84 0f this guide details what is to replace the motherboard.  According to this, the part of HP for the motherboard number is 630985-001.  You might look online to see what the cost of a motherboard to a site selling online because it does not appear that HP is available.  You can can try the HP parts store because it is more recent than the surfing part.

    In most cases, the benefits of a new system outweigh the costs and the benefits to repair an old.  However, third-party sites can carry enough good parts markets to switch the balance.

  • Computer DV7-1825dx laptop screen turns off at least connected to the HDMI

    I have a Pavilion dv7-1825dx running Windows Vista Home Premium 64-bit.  The other day, I simply closed the laptop into hibernation.  At the time, it was only connected to a printer and a wireless mouse.  The next day, I opened the laptop and it turned on but the screen stays off.  I shut down the computer by holding the power button and then turned back on.  The screen appeared and asked me if I wanted to start Windows normally.  Then, I got the loading screen for Windows.  As soon as he was done loading, the screen turns off and the chime sounded for the login screen.  I repeated again than having the same problem.  I typed my password, but the screen stays off.  Because I often hang my computer to our TV via HDMI, I thought I would try it, and that is, both screens lit.  I then disconnected the HDMI cable and the computer screen exploded again.  Plugged into the HDMI and activated.  I went into options for NVIDIA and noticed that there is an analog display with the screen of television and laptop (up to three screens on the list).  I restarted in safe mode, and the screen of the laptop works great.

    Any ideas on how to solve this problem?  That I can not connect my laptop to the TV whenever I want to use.

    Thank you advance!


    Save the driver on the desktop and install it from there, not in a temporary folder.

    Create a Windows restore point before starting.

    During the installation of the new driver, click on "Custom" and there will be a link to uninstall the old drivers and all of your current settings, this before you install the new driver.
