Question about HP Pavilion a705w PC Desktop
I have an HP Compaq 6710b. The power led on the front blinks steady when on battery use, but led stays lit when power cord is plugged in. After shutting down and unplugging everything, my led blinks steady and if I try to start up my laptop, the windows starts up but then freezes on the black screen. The unit will not start up properlly until I use the power cord. Ater using the power cord i can then unplugger the power cord and use battery power. I tried replacing the battery but this problem persists. This is an intermittant problem I've had since we bought the unit. Is there a quick fix or should I just return it for a new one.
HOW MANY TIMES DOE IT BLINK
EXAMPLE: 1 LONG BLINK AND 1 FAST BLINK IS A VEDIO AND MY ALSO BE A BOIS ERROR TOO.
THE LONG LIGHT MAY MEAN A POWER ISSUES, FAULTY WIRE, FUALITY POWER SUPPLY, INTERMITTING POWER SIGNAL TO THE COMPUTER SYSTEM
3-1-2- HARD DRIVE DMA ERROR

When you restart your notebook do you have a blinking cursor when the system freezes? It sounds like you need to reset your BIOS. To do this, power off then on your unit, Press F10 to enter BIOS settings, and then F9 to reset the BIOS to default settings. (Your functions may be a little different but you can read your menu to see which function key to select.) Once this done, select "Save and Exit BIOS" This should get you going. As for the blinking light, sometimes this happens when the battery is not holding a charge. If your battery is new, try the BIOS reset first and comment on your results. I can guide you through the battery reset process, if needed. Good Luck.
