I am looking at my brothers Hp pavilion entertainment pc. When the power button is pressed the blue lights come on for 2 seconds and the fan turns on. It then turns off. Nothing comes up on the screen. Then repeats in a constant loop.

Holding the windows key and the B key at the same time it will take it out of the loop but still nothing comes up on the screen.

I tried looking at the screen with a flashlight but nothing....also hooked up an external monitor and no signal.

Any help is very much appreciated

thanks!

I had the same problem last year with a HP Notebook (Laptop) I was trouble shooting and from this, I found this computer had a known problem of just this function. Press start lights up and beeps then stops.

I contacted HP and they sent me a prepaid box from Fed. EX I put the computer in and shipped it back. They repaired it at no cost, returned it in less than two weeks.

This know HP product has a bad Graphics Card, This is the Computer: HP Pavilion dv6125se Notebook PC

Contact HP Tech. http://welcome.hp.com/country/us/en/suppor...split%2Fsupport

The computer was bought in 05 I had it repaired in 09. Put your serial number or model number in the HP Support and see if its the one that was affected.

You can contact HP and explain what is happening, a support will try to help solve the problem. But it sounds exactly like a Graphic Card gone bad.

If it has the NVidia chipset, HP has been one of the more accomodatong OEMs when it comes to fixing the problem. I have had good luck dealing with HP on this issue.
