Have you tried to turn on the computer without the battery, it could be a shorted (bad) battery... they can prevent the notebook to boot, if the notebook boot's without the battery you need to replace the battery...
Have you tried booting and pressing F2 to get in the bios? If that works you can check the boot devices and order of usage. Make sure the HDD is first. Apart from that you can reboot and press F8 to get in the Windows boot menu, where you can try the Safe Mode.
If all this fails, the Windows configuration is somehow corrupt. You can try booting from a Windows CD and run the Repair option in the setup.
You could have a faulty motherboard or RAM.
First remove the main battery and boot up the laptop without the main battery connected, if it boots up insert the battery, no need to power down. If that doesn't work, switch off/disconnect the adapter and insert the battery, then reseat the RAM modules and boot up.
If nothing works then you have a piece of junk. You can salvage the hard disk and put it into an USB hard drive adapter case and use it as an external USB hard drive.
Is the Battery making the cranking noise? If so the battery is telling you the battery is dying. I have a IBM ThinkPad 380Z and when on the charger it makes a beeeeep noise and goes off and on for almost the entire day and then stops and keeps a solid orange battery light on.
Try booting without battery
sound like you have power problem mostly that is happen to the hp notebook now to solv now you need to unplug the ac power and also remove the battery and press the power button and hold untell the light come on and plug it back in and also put your battery back on the notebook should work normal again
Remove the battery and the power supply. Hook it to wall power only w/o the battery and try to turn it on. If it boots great, otherwise pull the power from the unit while it tries to turn on. Plug it back in and try turning it on again. If that doesn't work you need to re-seat the RAM and/or processor. Last thing to try if that doesn't work is new RAM as a processor almost NEVER goes bad and it is either the RAM or the motherboard at that point.
