\015 Hi all,\015\012\015\012I have hp laptop. I bought it 4 years back and it was working fine till now. But for last couple of days i am finding a problem. \015\012\015\012My laptops doesnt boot if i place it in my lap or at some flat surface. I need to put something beneath it to make it boot. \015\012\015\012Every time i need to use diff combinations to make it work. What coule be the reason ? Is this a problem related to my Hard disk ? \015\012\015\012Also when i properly tighten the screws beneath it, it works fine for some time. Again the same problem starts.\015\012\015\012Amit\015

This is a common problem with these machines.
\015\012There are components that have come loose on the main board from the machine flexing on the one side.

\015\012If you read thu the HP msgs, there are some other things you might want to try if the machine it out of wty.
I don't believe that this is a problem related to your hard disk. It sounds to me like you've got either a short or a loose connection somewhere inside your notebook.

You (or a qualified technician) need to open up the notebook and check all of the connections and look for worn or frayed wires and cables.

The link below details how to safely open the notebook if you choose to do so on your own:
