Do not delay in calling HP as they are replacing a lot of DV9000 series motherboards. It's not a bad machine but this is a sign you must make the call.
Sadly a few don't call in the failure inside the warranty and learn the lesson the hard way. Don't fall into that trap.
For a few weeks I have had some on and off problems with a black blank screen on boot up and wondered whether it might be a hard drive problem.
It is booting up OK at the moment.
Is there a way of testing the state of the hard dirive.
I am a beginner/improver who is willing to learn.
The laptop is now out of warrranty.
