me tooHey, my DV1311SE laptop just went dead as described like others. As it was still under warrenty, (only 2 months old) it was sent for repair. I received it back yesterday from FedEx, and i was so happy that it worked (as i am useless without my computer) Anyway i was in the middle of writing a paper for school (last minute of corse) AND IT DID IT AGAIN. i was so upset. no lights, no nothing. Called up HP, i have to send it back again.
What bothers me is that when i sent it the first time, they had told me that it was the motherboard, and that motherboards for this laptop are 'backordered'. So it was to take a little longer, ok that is fine. But they told me last night that they 'reworked a washer', and did nothing to the motherboard, and now they will need to replace the motherboard.
Now i am not good with the mechanics of laptops, but the person i spoke with could not tell me what 'reworked a washer' ment either.
Just thought that i would share my story with ya'll, as i anxiously await the return of my functioining laptop
