As to your question, I see failed units all the time. To give a reason for the failure is usually not possible. We can fix them (for a price) but the lesson is that its best to keep the warranty in place till you are ready to pay for repairs or replacement.
Hi. This morning at school I attempted to turn on my HP Pavilion dv3000 which my dad bought me on one of his business outings in Shanghai. To my dismay it does not boot. All the lights on the quickplay 'dashboard' turn on, and the HP symbol on the back of the screen lights up too, but the screen does not spring to life. I tried turning it on with and without the adapter plugged in, and with and without my wireless mouse plugged. Unsurprisingly, they made no difference and the screen refuses to spring to life. Normally, when the computer starts up, it makes a distinctive sound once, the screen lights up, and then the wireless symbol on the dashboard turns from orange (off) to blue (on). When I pressed the power button today all the lights light up, but the screen does not come on no matter how long I wait, and the wireless light does not change from orange to blue. There were no USB hard drives plugged in when I tried to boot it. Last night around midnight it was working fine, but 6 hours later, it breaks?
HP does offer a 'global' warranty of 1 year, but it has just recently expired around 2 months ago. Please advise!
Thanks in advance!
