Having problems with your HP Pavilion dv2120us Notebook ?

Hp laptop won't restart or come out of hibernation.

\015 I acquired a laptop (dv2120 hp) that has a restart issue. I have read other posts and have tried a few things but Im not sure where to go now. I was assuming it was a power issue so I used a power supply that is known to be good but same result. The problem is that when a new program or update is installed and you need to restart for changes to take affect, it won't restart. It shuts down then goes like its going to restart but it just sits there no post no nothing. So I hit the power button shut it off again wait a few seconds, power it on again and all is fine. I tried changing out RAM and still the same. Could this be a mb issue or CPU? Its a nice little computer I hoping to resurrect. Help please!\015\012I acquired a laptop (dv2120 hp) that has a restart issue. I have read other posts and have tried a few things but Im not sure where to go now.
