When I plug in my HP Pavilion Dv7, all the lights come on instantly, without even touching the power button. It doesn't power on during this, just all the lights come on. I have tried a different adapter but the same thing happens. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
UPDATE...Also when the laptop is on and running, and I click the shut off icon, it acts and sounds like it is shutting down correctly, and the screen goes off, but all the lights STILL stay on. Thanks for any help
I would go with Phil's diagnosis that the motherboard needs to be replaced. There was no reason to replace the power adapter, it has nothing to do with controlling the lights, it's the motherboard that controls the lights.
Hi Lewellen, I would first check the power on button.
Reason for this, is one would expect nothing to happen until the button is pressed, however something is happening. This suggests perhaps one or more of its contacts is stuck and not making or breaking as it should.
