I tried all the HP online instructions on trying to get my laptop to come on, I went to a technician he said that this was a common problem with HP Compaq laptops, he thought that it needs a mother board. The laptop is a couple of years old. Are there anyother solutions? has there been any extention of warranties because of recalls of this brand of laptops. What about recovery disk?

A recovery disk would not help if the laptop will not turn on at all. Try doing a Hard Reset. You can do this by removing the battery and unplugging the AC Adapter. Then press and hold the power button on the laptop for about 30 seconds, then put the battery back in and plug in the AC Adapter and try turning it on again. It's likely that this has already been tried, but try for yourself.
