I have an hp pavillion wtih the mcp61pm-hm rev. 2.2 MotherB.
Similar but slightly different problem:
My hp pavillion will not boot after
a power down.
I tried booting from dvd and thumb drive but
did not work.
The drive light and the wireless light are solid on when
powered up but nothing happens.
The dvd tray works, and the dvd drive spins up with disk in or not.
All fans work. The green power light on the power supply is on when plugged
the power switch does not
turn off the mother board when powered up.
I removed ram, all cards and tried powering
bios, but same symptoms, the drive light stays solid and the power switch does not turn off the mother board.
Any ideas? blown motherboard? can malicious software do this? I had just upgraded avg virus.
Last time my son installed ipod it did a similar thing but I could boot dvd to recover...
thanks for any help
