If win7 use safe mode, if win10 forget it. Start again and reload the OS.

Rule out: Water damage. Rule out, power supply, damage to cord, damage to plug end that fits into the computer power port. Check computers power port for bent female contacts. Battery can also be a problem. Some laptops will not function if the battery has lost charge or is dead. If none of the above, a CPU going bad or hard drive dying, will also cause the computer to fail when energizing.
Vest you have a computer technician look this over.

windows 7? why not first tell us the OS,
what words are in the crashed BSOD page.
let me guess, Fn+F4 and not F4
the former is turning on the external VGA jack , doing that?
i do not have enough facts presented by you to guess.
or show tests.
tell me:
1: is the RTC coin cell bad?
2: did you upgrade this from w7 to w10 with no support from HP?
3: did you test it with the bad main battery left out first, on AC power only this be like first a 5min job or less, falling off the log easy.?
4: did the external screen work, ? my guess Fn+F4
5: turn off sleep and hibernate in control panel , + power
run ok now? with all that off? be super good if yes,
now you can use it now, and later fix all the missing HP drivers later.
you know , right the driver are a 3 way match !?
match HP model.
match OS
and match the chip not working exactly

and these laptops are sold with like over 20 motherboard
different chips on them all
Wifi and ill stop here there is more,, on topic of options
now I will tell you what you did wrong.
1: not asking HP for help, sorry Fixya is not HP not in the least.
2: not posting your full service tag data. so the poor help
has a clue what you bought new.

I need the 1,3,5 lines seen here.


if you upgraded your pc to a new OS, now be the time to spill those bean, no>?
sorry cant guess what you own, nor what OS is there,
not now , or ever.

here is blind easy fix.. on all HP 2006 to todays.
power on, and hammer F11 key, bingo recovery mode.
and do a full recovery. (be data backed up first) ask or search.
if that fails, the HDD is bad or corrupted or slammed by the bad guy.

Look at the F keys at the top of the keyboard for a marking that looks like a half-sun. (You may see two adjacent mirror-image markings for contrast up and contrast down). Find the "Fn" key (usually next to the Windows or Alt keys). Hold this down, then press the F key with the contrast icon.

Nice books, have many. 8540s./. better.
i can not decode this post.
does it run with no battery and the correct pack
mine has 10 options new the i7 and the fast video card suck huge power and mine needs a 100watt pack, the 65w on mine is HOPELESS. see?
run the correct matching pack,
step 2 a new battery, i keep 2 good ones all the time
on Vacation, id not be wanting to find batteries 3000 south of here, ever. (south of the boarder)

test with no battery
then with correct power pack (the charger is a chip inside the pc and in this 19vdc pack its only a power pack pure DC.
then try a new battery ,

if you read your service manual at HP.com
it tells you all packs used and why, and the match.
sure does.
and varies by OPTIONS DAY1. in all case
unless upgraded like mine, is, and sucks max amps mine does.

easy, plug in any external display (vga first)
work now.?
also my elite book has a removable video card
also run free temp monitor software, as CPU core heat and GPU
if GPU overheats, fix that first.

mine has the 15p vga rear
and a video port left that i connect to my HDMI adaptor to TV
so i can watch screen on huge 60" tv if want.

why not use the external displays?
the hot key on top row turns this on..
the HP.com manual is free to read 24/7

page 16 in your manual shows
"VGA (Dsub 15-pin) supporting 1600 ×
1200 external resolution at 75-GHz (hot
plug/unplug with auto-detect)"

mines set to auto detect. per same book.

my 8540w has "DISPLAY" port left side and works with HDMI
so mines more ELITE, nana nana.....LOL

Yes it does, you will need a VGA cable running from the laptop to the TV...Assuming your TV also has a VGA connection.

if you TV does not you can use an adapter.

Try connecting it to an external monitor if possible.

You can use the VGA connector on your laptop to connect it to the Monitor.

restart the laptop and see if it comes up on the external monitor.

If it does show on the external monitor, It's probably the laptop screen going bad. and they ain't cheap. here's a link to a screen on Amazon, just to give you an idea...
Amazon com HP EliteBook 6930p Laptop Screen 14 1 LCD CCFL WXGA 1280x800...

If it still doesn't show, Hold down the function key and press the CRT/LCD button (Usually F8) to see if you can cycle between the external and the laptop monitor..

Hope this helps

the WiFi switch is actually on the touch-sensitive strip above the keyboard.

Take a boot-able genuine XP CD and put the CD in your system while its going to be restarted. Choose the boot order sequence as boot from CD. Choosing of boot order may varies from laptop to laptop, in some of the lappies it is possible by clicking F1 /F8 /F10. After starting the installation procedure it will ask for the partitions. Divide partitions as per your requirement but allocate minimum 50 GB HDD for C drive accordingly software(s) to be loaded. Its very easy later on steps....... just do next...next....next.... Choose proper time and location (your respective country) and complete the installation by entering a genuine key for OS. Enjoy with lappi there after............ :)

It sounds like windows update may have changed your driver to a generic one. Download and install the driver again from the HP link for your model laptop here HP EliteBook 6930p Notebook PC

I had a similar problem--I had to disable the ambient light sensor to fix the problem: fn-f11. Now it's as bright as I need it to be.

If it starts when plugged in you can eliminate an AC adapter fault.Make sure the battery is locked in place.If it still won't charge it needs to be replaced.

or is it a second hdd?
or if its new you should not have to format it.

I think you may have your terminology mixed up. a SIM, or Single Inline Memory module is for adding volatile memory to your computer and has nothing to do at all with accessing the internet.

Not sure, but you may be referring to a USB port?

Hi Carissa,

What browser are you using? Firefox, Chrome, Internet Explorer?

You can try using a different one and see if it yields different results.

Hope this helps!

Wild guess the updates may have affected old sound card driver. There may be an updated driver for the sound card. I believe Glary utilities free version is providing updated driver information. You may want to try that.
