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.

During power up, the pc quits working.Blue power light stays on but no power to hard drive or screen. Occasionally will get through power up and then quits working after 3-4 minutes. It's not the battery. Had a loose charging connector which I thought was causing the problem. Charging connector is fixed, but problem is still there. Believe the loose connector may have caused damage somewhere else.


I'd remain focused on the batteries. You can't have a blue power light on, unless there is power to the drive, I say this because you do power up occasionally, albeit, for a short time. This should also rule out Operating Sytem failure. Not hard dri ... Toshiba Satellite M35X-S111 Notebook
