my dv2000 won't boot or POST.

My HP Pavilion dv2000 won’t boot… on powering up button all LED indicators remain solid on (blue), including the QuickPlay, the wireless indicator is orange of course. Cannot access the BIOS. Also the hear the cranking noise by the CD drive… and that is it. Nothing else happen. The screens remain dark. I tried a hard reset: nothing. I tested the memory modules, had drive and cd drive with another laptop and they all seem to work fine. Lastly I took them way and powered on; I still got the same result. I have no idea what is going on. Any help?

Hi !


Seems that there is possible failure in the motherboard already because you can't even boot into BIOS.


Try a Hard Reset first. Remove the battery and unplug the charger. Then press and hold the Power Button for about 15 secs. Put the battery and charger in, then try to power on.


You can also try to reset the BIOS by removing the RTC battery, wait for about 10-15 secs then put it back again then power on the notebook.


If none of these would work, I'm sorry to tell but the notebook needs to be serviced.

Thank you zedenaka. I already tried that but it didn't work.
