My HP Pavilion dv9700 was over heating and would shut off. Then it wasn't over heating and would shut off. Now it won't turn on at all. The power cord is working and the lights go on for a second while I am pushing the button to turn it on, but the computer won't turn on. HP told me the problem was the motherboard. Do you think that's really the problem or could it be something else?
