So, we had this old laptop that's been stored away for some time now, mainly because the charger was lost and the battery eventually lost power. However, I recently replaced it in order to try and get it booted up once more, which to my delight it did as soon as it reached 100% charge. I wiped the entire system back to its original factory settings and it seemed to work fine, allowed me to install everything that I wanted and all. However, half way through rooting through some files, it froze completely and refused to do anything at all. Shutting it down completely, I tried rebooting it and the screens back light lit, but nothing else. No logos, no noise (unless I pressed quite a few keys and it beeped rather loudly at me), and no options anywhere. I tried restarting it several times but to no avail. I left it for a week or so and came back to the same problem, this time leaving it fr a few hours, just to see if it was being extremely slow, though there was no change. One last restart and it booted up again, allowing me to use it properly, wipe it again and restart it several times to install important windows updates. However, half way through it froze again and we're back to square one. Only a backlight present. So, really, any clues as to what is wrong with it and how I can fix it? Here's the info I can gather from it:
HP Pavilion DV9000
Windows Vista Home Premium OEMAct
Sorry for the lack of info, but any help would be appreciated!
