Question about HP Mini 1000 VT series PC Notebook
When I turn on the power switch, the light on the wireless switch flashes once and makes a clicking sound, but the computer won't turn on. If I plug it into the power, all of the indicator lights intermittently flash and it makes a clicking sound. Is it likely to just be the battery? I have tried taking out the battery and putting it back in.
This is a common issue when the unit has been dropped or jarred really hard. The click is more than likely the hard drive trying to read the disk but can not access information.
With that in mind, try this: Remove all USB, SD, or any cards and attachment from you computer. If you have one at hand, connect an external monitor to the pc. Power on. If you get an image on the external monitor, restart pc and press F8, select "Enabel-low-resolution video" and move forward. If you get a picture after this, your video drivers need updating. BUT......
The clicking sound is a major concern because usually the hard drive is the only hardware part that have moving parts. (other than the optical drive or if you have a solid state hard drive.) If you have a dard drive the same size or close with an operating system on it, replace your hard drive with the GOOD drive and retry. If it boots, you need to replace the hard drive. (and hopefully you have a backup of your data)
Worst case, you may need an authorized HP agent to service your pc.
