Boots up to black screen ,no battery intalled


Hi,

It is unfortunate that the computer just has a black screen. Request you to try following the below steps which might help:

    (1)Turn off the computer.
    (2)Remove all the external peripherals like AC Adaptor, flash drives, battery, etc.
    (3)Press and hold the power button for 30sec which releases the static on the computer (if any)
    (4)Put back the battery and plug in the AC Adaptor.
    (5)Let the computer charge for some time.
    (6)Try turning on the computer.
    If the computer doesn't turn on then check if the computer gives any series of beeps or if there are any diagnostics LEDs being displayed on the computer?
    Also let me know if you are trying to just run the computer with a AC Adaptor and without the battery.

    Thanks and Regards.

My laptop screen is black and caps lock and scroll key are flashing


That is a security configuration on HP Laptops, depending on the way they blink is the problem your machine has.

Here is the web page where this info is posted, in case you need more info, hope this helps you to determain.

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c01443366&lc=en&dlc=en&cc=uk&lang=en&rule=26781&product=3816592
This document pertains to HP Notebook PCs with the HP Unified Extensible Firmware Interface (UEFI) beginning in late-2008. On startup, you may see a blank screen. If the diagnostic utilities detect a specific problem with hardware components, the fan turns on, but the screen remains blank. To help identify the cause of the problem, various LED lights on the keyboard blink a series of codes. The diagnostic utilities use the LEDs near the Num Lock or Caps Lock keys to blink a series of error codes. At the end of the series the blinking stops. The pattern of blinks will occur any time you attempt to start the computer until the error is resolved. Battery power LED blinks The Battery power LED indicates the condition of the power supply. When starting the computer, or when the computer is in operation, use the chart to identify the power condition. Battery Power LED Component Tested Error Condition Battery power LED off, and Caps Lock/Num Lock off Battery or AC Adapter AC adapter not connected or failure

Battery low charge or failure Battery power LED blinking Battery Insufficient charge on the battery When new computer is used for first time, the white LED light for the AC power connector blinks. Battery is still in "Shipping Mode", the light continues to blink even when AC power is connected.

To resolve, turn off notebook, connect AC power and allow battery to charge for at least 30 minutes, then start computer. LEDs near Caps Lock and Number Lock keys blink when starting notebook The LED lights near the Caps Lock and Num Lock keys will blink if an error is detected during the start up process. The LEDs will blink a number of times in a sequence and then stop. The number of blinks in the sequence indicates what component caused an error when it was being tested during start up. If the LEDs stop blinking and the computer does not start, you can press the power button again to repeat the tests. Count the number of blinks, and use the chart to identify the error condition. Knowing the number of blinks is helpful when you contact an HP support agent for technical help. Caps Lock/Num Lock LED Component Tested Error Condition LEDs blink 1 time CPU CPU not functional LEDs blink 2 times BIOS BIOS corruption failure LEDs blink 3 times Memory Module error not functional LEDs blink 4 times Graphics Graphics controller not functional LEDs blink 5 times System board General system board failure LEDs blink 6 times BIOS BIOS authentication failure

    Laptop won't complete boot. Leds lit and not blinking fan runs black screen then auto-restarts itself in about 45 second cycles.


    There are several reasons for this behaviour of your notebook.
    First it can be due to some static elctricity getting on the motherboard or a major problem which I would discuss towards the end.
    1.Turn the Pc completely Off,take the ac adapter and the battery out.
    2.Press and hold the power key for 1 minute without anything connected to the PC.
    3.Replug the ac adapter and the battery back.
    4.Restart the computer and tap on the F10 key right at the top of the keyboard for a while which would take us to the BIOS SET UP.
    5.After we get to the Bios screen, press the F9 key once which would say whether we want to take the Bios to the default state or not.
    6.It would give us 2 option Yes or No. We need to press enter on yes.
    7.Now we need to press the F10 once again and then again we would get an option of Yes or No.
    8.We need to hit enter which would restart the computer and the computer should boot normally to windows as it normally does.

    Now if the computer does not even go to the BIOS screen while we tap F10 key at the beginning of the troubleshooting , you need to call HP and check whether this Model is still under the Recall Programme or not.
    Because the Model mentioned is under a one time service enhancement programme.
    If the computer is still under the programme then you are entitled to get a free repair.

    Dell Latitude C610 battery claims its too hot to charge....


    The charge light flashing orange-orange-orange-green....-orange-orange-orange-green.... usually means the battery has reached the end of its life and now it needs replacing.

    There are three ways to test your battery:

    1) If the battery has a button on the bottom of it and a row of 5 leds, then push AND HOLD the button for 5 seconds. The LEDs should all turn OFF, then turn back on showing a pattern. If all five LEDs turn on, the battery is dead.

    2) Open the Dell Quickset application (doubleclick it in system tray), go to Battery Meter, go to the battery health tab, and pick your battery. It should tell you there if the battery is healthy or not.

    3) Reboot your computer and go into the bios. Pick the Battery tab in the bios. It will list the battery health there.
