    Default HP dv5t stuck on "hp invent" screen

    when i turn on hp dv5t laptop, it stays stuck on "hp invent" splash screen.

    pressing esc or any f-keys does nothing. it just stays on the splash screen.

    it is still under warranty but i want to recover my data myself (i don't trust HP repair person will do it for me).

    is there a way i can fix this problem?

    thanks

    They probably won't recover you're data. Best thing to do is buy a cheap $10 2.5" HD external usb enclosure. Connect it to another PC with enough space and back up all you're files there.

    You can find cheap ones at newegg.com. It's better than trusting HP with your hard drive. Worth the 10-15 dollars to do it yourself.

    but still i would have to remove the hard drive from the laptop and if do that, it will void my warranty.

    that's why if there is any way i can fix the stuck at splash screen problem myself, please do tell me.

    Removing your HDD doesn't void your warranty.

    It's your warranty, so you find me the clause in your warranty that says "removing the HDD voids this warranty".

    A HDD is extremely easy to remove. Requires you to unscrew 2 screws.

    I've upgraded my RAM and HD, and sent it to HP for repairs. No issues. Just take lots of pictures.

    1) Pop out the battery pack

    2) Take out the AC power

    3) Unplug ALL USB and external devices

    4) Hold the power button for 30 seconds

    5) Start up using AC power only

    Ipods and other USB devices sometimes stop you from booting past the BIOS

    i tried flipfire's method but it didn't work. i didn't have anything plugged in anyways.

    i read about resetting the cmos but that would definitely void the warranty. i'll try to see if i can get the hdd out.

    any other ideas? thanks.
