Having problems with your HP dv5-1007cl PC Notebook ?

Computer went dead two nights ago. Battery should be okay. Mains lead light is on but that's it.

Answers :


Best thing to try is to first unplugging the ram then replugging it ( you will find a access port to this under the laptop and prob need a small crosshead screw driver). If this does not work then try doing the same with the hard drive.

If this does not work then its poss some thing on the m board has burned out, i have even seen this problem when a fan has failed on some laptops.

let le know if this helps if not please give me a shout.

Hi, I have the NEC Versa M300 laptop. Today I tried to run it from the battery and it is dead. I have attached the mains and it works fine. The amber battery charge light came on for about 1 min then went off, still no power from the battery. Up until now it has been working well with over 2 hrs of charge. I have also noticed that with the mains plugged in and the battery fitted, that the mains indicator from the bottom right on the toolbar, has gone. Can you help?
