Question about Computers & Internet
I think I had a power surge in my apartment even though my HP Laptop was plugged into a power strip. Anyway, no power whatsoever. The adaptor showed a light where it was plugged into the computer. And after turning it over and hitting what I thought was the reset...it caused the battery light to continually flash. But that's the most life I've been able to get from it. Any ideas, without having to send it for the $80 estimate?
It's an HP Pavillion dv9000 notebook
Try taking the battery out and running the laptop with just the AC adapter.
Also you should use a multimeter to test your AC adapter for voltage. If there is voltage from your AC adapter and the unit will not turn on with the battery removed then you have a faulty motherboard or another component in the laptop.
If it works without the battery all you need to get is a new battery or live with it without battery.
