I've had a number of small problems w/it, all right after the warranty expired.
I've had overheating problems (seems to be common w/this series), and lately, when I go to startup, it 'false starts' several times.
Either the lights on the keyboard light up adn the fan comes on, but the actual screen never gets anything/seems to start,
or it starts up w/a system problem and takes a while checking it before it starts up.
Sometimes it works fine.
Now, suddenly, after a plane trip, it just does the keyboard/DVD player/fan on thing...and will not start at all. I've tried switching batteries, haven't swapped power cords yet, but it seems to be drawing power (certainly enough to run the fan, etc.) and the LED on my computer SOMETIMES it registers that it is drawing power. Sometimes it doesn't.
Any thoughts? Would love some help before I try a repair service. HP has been beyond worthless on the customer service front.
