My HP Pavilion zt1170 fails to boot 90% of the time. Once power was turned on, I could hear the fan run for one second and stopped. No video, yet the LED was on. It seems like it froze.

Machine freeze up randomly. Must do a hard shutdown. Seems like a motherboard failure Does anyone know how I can get support for my M465-E laptop?
