Answers :

Take out your battery and hold down the power button for 60secs... This will release any excess charge built up in the machine.Put the power back on but without the battery,just plug the adapter and if it turns on then you know what's wrong.You need a new battery.Make your laptop light.Make sure you don't have anything attached to the Laptop and then restart.\015\012It could also be your hardware [motherboard,graphics card,screen] problem,if you can,try tightening the screen connection from inside.\015\012If that also doesn't solve the problem then you need to go to the company service center.
Had the same problem with mine: Actually the screen did work, however backlight did not, so it was very dim. It turned out to be a hardware problem. I took off the display and looked inside (you can find a video showing how to do this on youtube: just google for "S10-2 open case"). It turned out that the connector on the rear side of the LCD needed reseating. That was all :-).

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.
