I have a 2-in-1 HP Pavilion x2 Detachable 12-b000 Notebook that will not boot up when I press the power button. Though, surprisingly, when I plug in my phone charger to the USB port and connect it to my phone, whenever I press the power button, my phone's screen would light up indicating that there is some sort of connection between my phone and the laptop but there is no phone charging happening.
When I plug in the battery charger, there is a white light that appears next to the battery port, signalling that the battery is fully charged.
Sometimes, though very rarely, I am able to boot up the laptop but the laptop screen has to be in a certain position. If I move it or push down on it, the laptop shuts back down. When it does boot up, it shows that the battery is fully charged, so I am assuming that the laptop's battery is working fine. The laptop also appears to always be in tablet mode whenever it is on though if I change it to laptop mode, it does not shut off or anything. The keyboard and the mouse pad works if the laptop is able to boot into Windows 10.
I have come to deduce that it is either the screen or some other hardware. For curiosity, what could be the cause of this issue? Could it be water spilling into the laptop or just bad hardware pieces? I had this laptop for about a year now and the warranty for the laptop expired. Before I try to repair this laptop, I need to know which part is the issue.
Processor: Intel Core i3-4130 CPU @ 3.40 GHz
Motherboard: Asus H81M-E
Memory: Transcend 2GB DIMM DDR3 1333 MHz (Channel B)
Undefined 2GB DIMM DDR3 1600 MHz (Channel A)
OS: Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 64 bit
I am planning to buy a new desktop pc in couple of months with the latest generation of processor, motherboard, ram and new hard disk available in the market. I want to preserve my present pc components (processor, motherboard, hard disk and ram) for future use since they are working without any hassle. Will my present pc components function properly and last longer if not used for a long time? Should I use the unused motherboard, processor, ram and hard disk once in couple of months just to check and make sure they are in proper working condition? How effectively can I preserve the current pc components for future use if needed?
Thanks in advance.
There are red, black and brown wires leading from my motherboard to my power switch pcb. Shorting the red and brown ones together turns the laptop on (but not off, which is odd). I shorted the red and black ones together while the laptop was on and now it does nothing when I press the power switch/short red and brown together. No power LED, no fan movement, nothing. What component have I killed?
Plugging into charge turns on the charging LED, but that is the only thing the laptop responds to. The laptop is a samsung qx-310, by the way.
Whenever I try to install any OS on this HP Pavilion dm4-3170se laptop it says that a required drive partition is missing and the internal hard drive does not show up as a place to install the OS. When I use gparted on a live Linux distro my hardrive shows up however with 500gb of space. But I can't install anything on it and windows nor ubuntu will install on the hardrive. Please help I am really fed up with this thing. I've been at it for over a month now. I have more pictures and can answer more info if needed. I consider myself decently computer savi and have more than a few computer programming and engineer classes under my belt from college.
