On/off switch failing. difficult to turn on
\015 Very difficult to turn on my HP pavilion notebook. Must push on/off button way down and hold it there to start unit. Each session is getting more difficult. Can the switch be sprayed with tuner cleaner or is it membrane protected. Don't see any easy way to take cover off.\015
To repair this, you need some experience. Remove 3 white and 2 black screws under battery. Remove memory cover. There is another black screw under memory cover. Then you can remove upper cover and keyboard. You will see two special white wires connected from cover to motherboard. One of them is damaged. Need to clean these wires or replace with new one

I am working on an HP Pavillion a1220n Desktop and I am getting different bootups each time. First we had a visual (video), but when we enter bios, the computer would not freze up, but simply just reboot itsself, and it would reboot everytime by itsself, no matter where you were at from 15-20 seconds after booting up. So I removed the CPU/FAN and Heatsync and they were covered with dust, I cleaned the dust off, and plug it back in, and now when I turn it on, the fans are running in the back, b
