hello i have hp compaq nx9020 and when i press the power button the power led turn on for 2 or 3 seconds and then died again


With an extensive use of the notebook,
some times notebook would store some static charges which
indeed will stop the notebook from powering up or charging
the battery. The procedure to remove this static charges from
the notebook is known as power drain. Performing a power
drain procedure will not effect any personal data or delete
any pictures from the hard drive on your notebook.
I recommend you use Power Drain procedure by following these
steps:

1. Disconnect the AC Adapter.
2. Remove the Battery.
3. Hold the Power button down for 30 seconds to 1 minute.
4. Reconnect the AC adapter.

my ergo notebook will not power on the lights come on then go off ?


It might happen if the static charge is accumulated on the battery conductors. This conductors does not allow to charge the AC adapter or sometimes it does not allow you to start the Notebook.

To remove the static charge, disconnect the computer from the external source (AC adapter) - remove the battery and press and hold the power button for 1 min.

This will release the static charge which is stuck on the battery conductors. This process is called Power drain.

If the computer still does not power ON, then it might the issue with the Motherboard. Please contact the manufacturer for replacement.

Thanks'
