Could be useful with a bit more infomation, but if this just happened you should try to let ur computer cool down for a hour or two, if its overheated, and try turn it on again later.
Of course, if you've had this problems for several days this won't work, as I tried to express before; this is only if the problem has just appeared, because it happens to me very often.

    Well, thanks for more infomation, but I'm sorry to say that if the fan won't work, then theres nothing I can do over internet, exept giving you the advice to go to the shop were you bought it and tell them your problem. The fan problem is a fatal error, which means the computer probably is destroyed, and theres nothing much you can do with that, so you will probably get a new one, or the money back were you bought it, because as I said before, the fan problem is a critical error.

    Though, there can be hope, I got one question: When you turn on the laptop, does the fan start a bit, and then fade quikly out, or does it not start at all?

Hi! Having some trouble with a friends laptop here. I have it on AC power and the battery is now charged (middle light has changed from amber to blue). So when I push the power button, the top light...


Try unplugging AC power lead and then take out the laptops battery, plug the AC power lead back in and try turning it on, see what happens. If the laptop turns on then there is a problem with the battery.

Good luck and let me know how you get on.

My HP 6720 won't switch on. When connected to the power source, a steady blue light comes on (normal) then goes to a light blue then goes blank. If I press the 'on' button, a flashing orange light appears...

1. Take the battery out of the laptop & try to turn on the laptop using power adapter only. If the computer turns on, then the battery is defective & needs to be replaced.
2. Make sure the power adapter is not defective. Test the output voltage of the power adapter using a voltmeter. Compare the voltmeter reading to the nominal value written on the adapter or the laptop.
3. If you have another processor which is compatible with your laptop's model, try swapping processors & test to see if the laptop will work.
4. The power button could be bad.
5. The motherboard could be defective & needs to be replaced.
