Hi 2xcapers

This could be a problem with your IDE or SATA cables that connect your Hard Disk to your Motherboard. Try replacing these before you try the next solution.

The constant yellow light usually indicates a crashed or non-functioning Hard Disk. You can take this to get repaired and only the data where the "Spindal Pin" crashed will be lost, otherwise the Hard Disk should still be fine. The screen does not come on during the event of a crashed or corrupted Hard Disk, so this is another indication that there is a problem with the Hard Disk.

Please remember to give this solution a FixYa! rating.

Happy Easter

My HP Pavilion dv9005us has two issues which I cannot resolve. The wireless device is not even recognized or detected by the computer, and there seems to be an electrical problem where the lighted buttons at the top flicker on and off from time to time, which may also be linked to an issue where the computer will at times refuse to turn on after I press the on button and watch it all light up in response and immediately shut off. Any help with this would be greatly appreciated.
