Question

Locked

HP Pavillion lockup

By carl.anna ·
My HP Pavillion notebood is completely dead. I've reseated the memory and replaced the adapter. No such luck. There are NO lights showing. My old notebook had a "reset" switch on the back which allowed a bypass and a restart when it locked up. What do I do now?

Well knowing the Model Number would help

But as you didn't give it you'll have to look up the Service Manual for yourself on the HP Web Site.

Depending on what is required here I would say replace the NB and fit the HDD to a External USB Caddy and recover your data off that.

See if this will help

If the computer and the power light are not turned on when you press the power button, adequate power may not be available to the computer.

The suggestions below may help you determine the reason the computer will not start up:

If the computer is plugged into an AC outlet, verify that the AC outlet is providing adequate power by plugging another electrical device into the outlet.

If the computer is running on battery power or is plugged into an external power source other than an AC outlet, plug the computer into an AC outlet using the AC adapter. Make sure the power cord and AC adapter connections are secure.

If the computer is running on battery power:

Remove the primary battery pack and travel battery pack (if applicable) and plug the computer into an AC outlet using the AC adapter. If the computer starts up, one of the battery packs may need to be replaced.

If the battery light on the front of the computer is blinking, the battery pack has reached a lowbattery condition, which may not allow the computer to start up. Plug the computer into an AC outlet using the AC adapter to start the computer and allow the battery to charge.
