I bought my HP Pavillion dv9000 laptop about 9 months ago, a refurbished model from Buy.com, and up until now, it has worked fine. Today, I left my computer idling while I was working on my desktop, and when I went back to it, the screen was black and I couldn't do anything. I held the power button for a few seconds to let it restart, but it restarted to a black screen, with some of the lights on the keyboard coming on and what I think is the hard drive going, but then immediately shut down again. Not enough time to even enter safe mode or anything like that. After a few seconds, it started up again, only to do the same thing. This would've gone on forever, so I took the battery out, and tried it on AC power. The same thing happened when I powered the computer on again, so I was forced to disconnect it from AC power as well. I've also tried disconnecting the power and battery and holding the power button down for 30 seconds, but this didn't help. I've also tried reseating the memory to no avail, though I might try this a couple more times just to make sure. Help?
