Yesterday my new HP Pavilion HP Pavilion dv9760ez Notebook did not want to boot at all after a kind of freeze that happened when I disabled the touchpad. The keyboard and the mouse were blocked. After pressing the on/off switch openSuse 10.3 shut down but finally did not switch off the computer.

When switching the computer on again I could hear the disk and the fan but the screen remained black, not even the BIOS/HP logo appeared.

In that case, given a computer which you KNOW was working before,
and which fails to execute the same power-on-self-test code in
the BIOS that it's been running since the day you got it, what
makes you think that it's suddenly the BIOS that failed, and
not the hardware?
