Long story short. I have an HP Pavilion Laptop (dv5) and I have a serious issue.
First, the Laptop was restarting all by itself without any notice.
I tried to backup my stuff but the laptop did not even recognize or read the USB Drives.
After that, the laptop was shutting down all by itself.
I tried my best to backup but NO WAY, either restart or shutdown and can't do anything :(
I tired to remove the RAMs. I have two, each is 2GB.
When I removed them all, turned the laptop on, nothing happened. Obviously.
I decided to insert ONLY one and leave the other. The Laptop has magically worked without any issue. 2GB RAM now instead of 4 and it was working perfectly.
Stupid me, I decided to test the other RAM so I took the first and inserted the second one only.
Since I have done that until now (more than 8 hours), the laptop can NOT login to Windows. I just can login to BIOS.
It is always stuck or hung up on a Blinking Dash with Black Screen. THAT IS ALL.
No matter which RAM I use, whether I remove or insert them all, NOTHING happens.
Funny thing is, in BIOS, there's a RAM Test. It's always say PASS and the BIOS is always detecting the RAM but why I can't even login to Windows anymore and pass that stupid blinking dash?
