I have had many problems in the past with this laptop. It has gone through a lot, and it is about time to get a new laptop. However, I would like to get as much information off the hard drive as possible. Sadly, the laptop has not been able to boot up reliantly. It usually would be able to boot up normally, but now sometimes it will not even power on upon pressing the power button. When it does, the screen stays black, the LED lights come on, but nothing happens. No noise is emitted from the laptop, either; no fan noise or anything. I've tried hooking up the laptop to my external monitor, but that did not help at all. The oddest part of this is that it was fine working just about four to five hours ago. If anyone has any insight, it'd be pretty helpful right now. The laptop is a HP Pavilion Entertainment PC dv2500.
Thanks ahead of time!
