HP Laptop Seem to Charge but Wont Turn On

Alright so my HP laptop was fine last night. I decided to go to sleep and when I woke up I unplugged my laptop to move it to where I was going to be using it that day and when I went to turn in on, the side light where the power cord is plugged in turns on and so does the front blue light when i open the laptop, but when i hit power it lights up for approx. 2 seconds then promptly shuts off. Ive taken out the battery and used can air to clean the fan. Any ideas?

When you plugged the power cord back in did the green light on the power cord battery light up. How long have you had the cord. Make sure the power cord is working properly.

Its plug in but battery wont charge


If your battery will not charge, you need to run a test on some components on the laptop. The battery, the charger and the laptop itself. Once you detect the faulty conponent then you replace it with a new one.

To test the battery:
1.Power off the laptop,
2.Take out the battery,
3.Insert it in another laptop,
4.Check of it will charge,

If the battery holds a charge there, then it means the problem is not from the battery, but if it does not hold a charge, then it means the battery is defective and need to be replaced with a new one.

To test the charger:
1.Unplug the charger from the present laptop,
2.Connect it to another laptop to see if it will charge.

If it charges the laptop, then it means the charger is alright, and if it does not charge the laptop, then it means the charger is bad and need to be replaced.

To test the laptop:
1.Turn off the laptop,
2.Disconnect your present charger,
3.Remove your present battery pack,
4.Insert a well tested battery into the laptop,
5.Connect a well tested charger to the laptop.

If it powers on, then it and charges, then it means the laptop is working fine, but if it does not charge, then it means the connection port of the laptop is bad.Hope this information was helpful.

I set up my wireless yesterday and the notebook said the battery was charged so I unplugged it. When I woke up this morning the notebook was completely dead - nothing happenned when I pressed the power...


Plug it back in. This is usually an indication that something in the notebook was running all night and drained the battery.
Perhaps the computer did not go to sleep or hibernate.
Charge it up and use it during the day to see how long the battery lasts.

try to turn on the laptop without the battery and only the power cord plug in.

if your laptop works with this you need new battery or update bios ( there might be fix for battery monitor)

if not, call service support, might be motherboard issue

The wireless adapter seems to have disappeared.


hey, heres a list of things to try and the things that could be your problem.
check in control panel, system, device manager see if you see the wireless adapter is in there or if there is any tags with unknown device if there is drivers will need reinstalled, that would be your problem if update caused it.

other things to try is check the side of the laptop for the wireless on / off button or switch to double check the the wireless is turned on, there should be a light if it is.

if there is no meantion of wireless device, and you have tried to turn it on from the switch then its a faulty adapter..

Hope this helps

All the best
