Question about Computers & Internet
Blue light stays on un less battery is removed
This is usually a sign that the laptop isn't off and is actually in sleep/hibernation (a low powerstate to allow quick boots to your previous environment)
if you do not want to see this light click shutdown instead it may take slightly longer to boot up but it will not have unneeded processes running still

I have the same problem. What I have found with mine is that if I can get the battery to take just a little charge then I can get it up and running. Here is how I do it. Disconnect AC power leave the battery in and start the laptop. As soon as thing start to run I plug the AC back in and it works fine from there on. Now mine is flashing as well now and I have a dead battery and it will not restart. Something I have noticed thought is it appears that the yellow light is blinking a code. This is what I have come up with. I appears to be flashing 323 as the code or could be 2 shorts 1 long then 2 shorts and then 3 shorts.
Anyone know where to find info on these flashing codes.

Hi this sounds like your computer is in hibernation mode as opposed to shut down mode. Could you check and see as if running Vista many people assume that clicking on the brown power type selection under start that they are shutting down where as this actually only hibernation mode and clicking on the little arrow to the right of this and selecting shutdown is the way to go.
I hope this helps

The backlight inverter board may be bad, or worst case will be bad lamp. You should look to see if the cable comes off the inverter board first. You may learn maore here:
