HP PCs - Resolving Broadband Internet Connection Problems (Windows 7)

New ssd in, windows 7 installed, and no Internet connection!

This is what ram looks like. I was thinking remove the entire back of the machine You've presented yourself as not savvy at all so pardon if this seems insulting. The power button on laptops tend to allow several ways to use them and these are set in the BIOS. The button can be used to turn the laptop off and on as well as to use a sleep mode. It's easy to mix up the two. What you might try is to reset the BIOS this way. Disconnect any AC power adapter and remove the battery Press and hold the power button for at least 30 seconds.

Going a full minute won't hurt. Reinstall the battery and plug in the AC power adapter. Turn on the laptop by pressing the power button for no longer than 1 second. Be very patient and don't expect much from the screen immediately. Go and make a sandwich and come back to check the status of the laptop. It should be either at the desktop or welcome screen depending on how it was initially set up for the primary user.

Turning off a laptop which has already been turned on usually requires that the power button be held at least 4 seconds. Anything less will attempt to put it into a sleep mode. One thing we can't tell is how long you've been pressing the button or have been waiting for a response after it being pressed. It takes almost a minute to boot to the welcome screen but is quite fast once it's ready to launch programs.

There is a considerable period of time when the screen is completely black during the boot and it would be easy to think something is wrong when all is well. Watch for a disk activity LED during this blackout time. If it's flashing, the laptop is active in the background. Patience is everything sometimes. Just done what you suggested and no joy, not insulted by the way, I have limited knowledge like most when first starting out.

It's like it boots into sleep mode then if I press the power button again the lights go off and then come bk on and it starts properly. I'd suspect a hardware issue that's not correctable by other than replacing parts. The issue is bad caps capacitors which are a part of the power supply and filtering systems. If, once you can get your laptop to power up normally, you can repeat that until you turn it off and let it sit idle, I could think bad caps could do this.

You could also see what happens using just the AC power supply adapter with the battery removed and then trying the battery alone to see if the symptoms change or remain the same. This becomes a process of ruling out one thing or another. I suppose you've already ruled out the display as being the problem. If the display backlight doesn't come on, the laptop can appear to be shut down or asleep. Fans running at startup but slowing later is fairly normal.

The best indication that a system is actually booting is the hard drive activity LED. Even if the screen is blank, that LED will let you know if the device is actually starting up or not.
