Mine got that problem for months. I tried all the advices from HP forum but I even baked my motherboard in the oven but no, it totally dead. Unhappy with HP product...Probably I will not consider to buy HP Laptop or Desktop again. Thanks.

It is most likely a motherboard that should be replaced. Cost can be an issue with an outdated unit, but if the pictures are priceless, you may not have much choice.
Other alternatives require some tech skills, such as extracting content from the hard drive to another unit that is still operating.
This assumes that the hard drive is still working as it appears to be.
Do you hear the fan, or any spinning when you startup?

The cost of replacing the motherboard may be more than what your unit is worth.
If you have access to another machine, you can transfer your content with utilities such as PCMover
Motherboard problems appear to be consistent issue on DV7, hopefully HP has fixed this, but it still appears.
