Question about HP Compaq Presario 2200 Notebook

1 Answer

I have a few problems

Hi,
On the front of the computer there is a lightning bolt and the light under it is now green, what does this mean?

The computer has been making a high pitched noise when I touch the mouse some times.

And I have to press ctrl/alt/delete to get it going some times

Is my computer having a mental break down???

Thanks for your help,,, Sue

It sounds like you have a hardware problem, this is not something we can easily diagnose let alone solve via forumn posts. I would recommend you take the machine to a local repair shop for a proper hardware diagnostic.

The lightning bolt on my hp touchsmart tx2 flashes


that means your laptop has no power so your battery is dead which would explain why it shut down on you, and that means its not charging so it would either be the adapter or the port on your laptop

Micron Trek 2 laptop won't start on battery or AC (NBKU375)


The lightning bolt is used to indicate an electrical problem but then, you know that already :-( Try removing the battery pack and start it from AC only; some battery types don't like to be ignored, they can have individual shorted cells.

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.

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.

No problem? ?? HP dv8230 status indicator lights flashing.


I believe this would mean that your battery either has a low charge or if you have the AC power cord plugged in, it could mean your battery is bad and won't take a charge

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.

Flashing device status light


Ok the lightning bolt is your power indicator: solid green-charging, Flashing green-fully charged, flashing red-low battery, flashing red three times the once green-bad battery. the "trash can" looking one is your hard drive activity indicator it will flash while your hard drive is reading and writing.
