    I might have this same problem. On my HP dv9225 laptop, I have been consistently experiencing this when trying to power on. The lights across the top of the keyboard will come as normal. After a bit, they will go off and then come back on. This is repeated until I hold the power button down long enough to turn it off. Occasionally I can get it to come on by retrying. When that doesn't work, I press the QuickPlay for Quicktime and the computer will come on. I log on and then QuickPlay launches. Previously, even accidentally pressing the QuickPlay would cause QuickTime to launch without having to login....

    Thanks for the detailed suggestions.

    Of course, when I have an external monitor available, the problem doesn't happen! I'll keep trying when I can but I don't think that is the problem. It has more to do with power because the lights blink on and off. When it properly boots up, they don't do that.

    My problem is not exactly described in HP's recall, but I may contact them anyway and ask.

    Thanks!

First of all, try connecting an external display source like a Desktop Monitor to the VGA Port of the Notebook after turning it on and press hold the FN key and press the F4 key once to toggle the display to the monitor connected.
If you are able to see the display on the Desktop monitor connected to the Notebook, the issue is with the LCD, if not, the issue is either with the Graphic Card or with the Motherboard.
Additionally, I would like to inform you that HP had identified some hardware issues with few Notebooks installed with AMD Processors and is providing free repairs for notebooks purchased and currently available in US and Canada.
You need to get the Product Number of the Notebook which is indicated with P/N and is printed on a white sticker pasted at the bottom of the Notebook.
Check if the Product Number of your Notebook is listed in the list available in the link below :
http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&docname=c01300427
If your Notebook product Number is listed in the link provided above and if the Notebook is installed with AMD Processor, you need to contact HP Chat Support and provide the required details and get the Notebook repaired by HP for free.
You can find more information about this repair offered by HP from the link below :

Hope this helps...

Charging Conventions

  • The majority of laptops will display a solid green, blue or purple battery light to indicate that the battery is fully charged. Most manufacturers indicate that a laptop is in the process of charging by displaying a solid or blinking green, orange, blue or purple light. If your battery indicator light is green, blue or purple, the battery is probably functional, regardless of whether the light is blinking. If the light is solid orange, the laptop is probably in the process of charging.

Battery Error Coneventions

  • Many battery manufacturers use rapidly blinking lights to indicate that a battery's charge level is low. In general, a laptop will rapidly blink orange or red when its charge drops below a certain level until the computer is plugged into a power outlet and charged. If your laptop's battery indicator continues to blink rapidly in orange or red or if it remains red even when it is plugged into the charger, it indicates a problem with your battery or the charger.

How can I fix my hp61 of it won't start screen


You say the battery is charging? Have you tried another Cord/Charger with the EXACT same power specs? Has the AC jack been damaged due to pulling on the cord while plugged in? Any damage? Drop? Do you leave the Laptop plugged in while not in use?

For this kind of issue, please follow up the following steps to check:

1.confirm your Lenovo IdeaPad S10 ac adapter and battery connect the laptop normally.Maybe the bad connect lead to this problem. If there are no lights when you turn on laptop, one of possible reason is that your adapter is malfunction.

2.the second possible cause is laptop dc jack failure. If the dc jack is broken or loose, you are required to replace it or repair it.

3.Another possible reason is that there is something wrong with laptop motherboard. For this situation, it includes two kinds of possibility,a failure in an electronic circuit and BGA malfunction.

Samsung N145 Plus battery charge failure


If the laptop battery is more than 3 - 4 years old then the battery could be worn out. Rechargeable batteries have a finite number of charge and discharge cycles and will lose their charge capacity over time, i.e. won't charge to 100% and gradually the charge reduces until the battery won't charge up at all. OR The battery shows a 100% charge but when the adapter is disconnected the battery drops off to zero capacity in a very short time. If the battery drops to an unacceptable charge level then the battery needs to be replaced.

My HP Pavilion dv9740us Notebook PC dosent start the screen is black


Doesn't start as in nothing happens when you hit the power button? Or are you saying the Desktop is black, but it seems like windows started and went through the boot process?

If nothing happens when you hit the power button:
Shine a flashlight on the dark screen to see if you barelysee the icons on the desktop. If so, then the LCD Inverter is bad.

Plug in an external monitor and see if the display shows up on it. It can beany kind of monitor even the old big fat crt monitors as long as it has a vgacable to connect to your computer's vga port. If so that proves yourvideo card is ok. The video will show on most systems when you rebootwithout you having to do anything. Some systems will require you to hit the FN(Function key) + F1 thru F12. Hold down the FN key then hit the correctkey for displaying on the monitor (F1 thru F12). The correct key willnormally have CRT/LCD on it or it will have the icon of a display.

If you see no icons by shinning a flash light and the external monitor works,then your screen is bad. If you see no icons by shinning the flash lightand nothing shows on the external monitor, then most likely your video card isbad.

My packard bell zg 5 won't start after the battery has drained. When I plugged the charger in, the battery indicator only keeps on blinking and won't start.


Try removing the battery and then connecting the power adapter and see if the laptop will start normally with no battery installed - if it does, then you should get a replacement battery.

I have a dell inspiron 1150 when i connect the charger the battery and the power light keeps on blinking and nothing happens oh turning the power button


Sounds like the adapter is being overloaded ... Dell is one of 2 or 3 manufacturers using a 3 wire adapter plug jack. And ... well ... lets say they can be problematic ... it's a great system but very sensitive to battery malfunctions. I suggest you remove the battery then pug the adapter in ... if all is OK then have the battery checked

When trying to start up my dell latitude CPX nothing happens, and when I plugg up the wall charger, there is a blinking light but still no power


A blinking light normally indicates a dead battery; however, since it does not power up when power is plugged in, I would suspect that the power jack on the motherboard needs to be repaired. This would explain the lack of power and the inability to charge the battery. I replace powerjacks a lot. Good luck. -Carlos:
