It IS possible to repair it. The tech guy at my local laptop repair shop managed to fix 2 of these (a dv7 and a dv5 simply by swapping out processors.)

Yes this is most certainly not a user fault and seems to be a CPU failure. Not sure how much you tinkered with changing the CPU but from what ive heard HP has been sending out some defective chips from the factory.....eek. My tech guy proved that to be true.
