I think it may be due the displacement of the RAM or may be due to the loose contact in the RAM.this is the reason why the lights blinks.it can be solved by placing the RAM correctly into the slot provided or it may be due to the damage in the power supply.the windows may not load due to the great load of viruses affected with the system .try to format it and install a fresh operating system and look.thank you

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, pls try to remove the battery and the AC adapter/charge. Let it rest for a couple of minutes. Thereafter pls try again just using the AC adapter without the battery. Should this work OK, then pls try with the battery. In some cases, it may be needed to charge the battery for at least 4 hours.

Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa. Happy Holidays.

The lighting bolt symbol indicates you are connected to ac current, for your boss laptop plz try by removing the battery and put in the electrical charger, if the problem is not solved then resit the ram and check.If the problem persists then your boss lap top needs servicing.
For your laptop plz try to boot in safe mode.While your laptop is booting (bios screen) press F8 then you will get safe mode option just select it,if your computer is booting in safe mode then try to boot it normally, if you cant boot in safe mode then you have to reinstall or repair your operating system.

Flashing orange light generally indicates battery low charge could be your battery at fault
the next time you try and power on and it doesnt work, take the battery out (unplug AC) and try to run just on AC power
hope helps, let me know if can help further

I have a gateway ma7 laptop and press power and get nothing


When the computer is off, unplug the power cord from the laptop and then plug it back in. See if the charge light (lightning bolt symbol next to the led) comes on or turns green/blue. If it doesn't your power supply may not be working, even if the light on the supply is on. Second is the battery may be damaged. Remove the battery and see if you can power on at all.
If it boots with only the cord, the battery is bad/shorted forcing shutdown.

Wont Turn on, Monitor Flashes a bit


oops, I did see the model on your Presario.

This sounds like it could be the motherboard or power circuitry.

If the DC jack was replaced, and the AC adapter, I would say the motheboard is bad. I have seen this on many models, not just the Hps.

If your laptop is under warranty, I would definately contact HP. If you have a local repair shop, that is probably your next best bet.

FLASHING AMBER UNDER LIGHTNING SYMBOL


Is it an amber lightning bolt? (I am assuming thats what you mean by UNDER lightning symbol)

That is the charging symbol for your battery, it means your battery is being charged by your power adapter.

Flashing lightning bolt on Compaq C300


This sounds like a battery problem. The best way to test this is to remove the battery and then power the laptop up with just the power cord plugged in but no battery. If the computer boots then the battery is bad you will need a replacement. Also try letting the battery charge for a day. Be sure that the charging light is coming on when you have it plugged in.
