I have this HP DV 2000 Special edition laptop : dv2470se KC448UA.
At first it wouldnt turn on at all so I replaced the motherboard with a new one from ebay and it actually turn on!!

Now it randomly shuts off...powers off i mean.
Sometimes it turn on and off in 1 second, sometimes after HP logo and other times while showing the windows logo (win 7)

Why so? It charges fine??

Also sometimes when i press the power button it doesnt turn on it shows shows the LED lights : HDD Activity, Touchpad LED and scroll lock i belive. For less than a second :o

Hi :) 

That last line usually indicates a faulty motherboard...when you say you bought a new one...was it BRAND NEW or used ?

And was it identical ?

All the best Brett :)

Straight from here: http://www.ebay.com/itm/390386198356?ssPageName=STRK:ME...

Says new. It powered up before to the desktop, but then shuts down. And now I can get it to work, will a bad AC adapter do this? (then again a bad one wouldn't charge huh? and it would run fine on battery even so huh) Yea identical same model etc.

Cross out the scroll lock button

Hi :) 

READ that companies NEGATIVE feedback......a lot of it is about them selling faulty used boards as new....

Get your money back...

All the best Brett :)
