Solved!

Old Dv1024 will not boot

HP Recommended

An old machine, but fully capable of simple things like a web machine.  Was up and running, just suddenly shut down.  When I press the power button the top keyboard lights flash, I hear a faint click, but that is it. 

 

Are these things worth repairing?  Any guesses?

 

Know not much to go, but all guesses welcome.  Thanks!

Thanks,

 

    Already have new one, was hoping to recover some files off hard drive.  Guess I will have to look into making it an external usb drive.

Most users would find that it is more beneficial to purchase a new system than it is to repair.  Often times the repair costs is almost as much as a new system, but without all the benefits of a new system.  The reason for this is that a lot of the parts may be considered legacy and no longer manufactured as new which adds to the cost of the parts. 

 

For what you described what it was used for, it sounds like a new system is the better option. 

 

There were eight different results for Dv1024.  If you can provide the product number, I might be able to give a better idea of what a repair might cost for comparison.
