Power LED flashes three times-no boot

My HP Pavilion dv1000 will not power on at all. All it does after I press the power button is LED flases three times. I tried some of the troubleshooting found here, but it did not work (different AC adapter, battery etc.) Is this flashing some kind of code just like beeps at POST?

How do i fix my LCD?

I have got a hp pavilion dv5000, when I turn on it the screen goes blank.

Power led glows, I hear for a few time the fan, disk led flashes intermittently and also I feel that the DVD player tries to load.

If I try to click on caps lock or num lock, leds don't respond to commands. I tried the hard reset pressing the power button for 30 seconds with the battery and the power removed. Nothing to be done by connecting an external monitor....

What can I do ?qqb002.gif

My laptop does not boot to windows xp and instead beep three times. The power light flashes with every beep

The three beeps is a warning that the Power on self test reports a failure of hardware. it could be video, memory, Hard Drive, etc. If you can get into the diagnostics, you can tell more. If nothing works, It may be the motherboard.

Laptop wont boot and the battery and power lights flash

a simple power cycle might work. Take out the battery but keep the ac power connected. hold the poewr button down for 1 minute. then hit the power button again and it should poewr back up. If this doesn' t work. iyou said hte battery light flashes so the problem isnt the battery..the problem might be hte ac power adapter..if you have a warranty this would be a good time to call them. Try the power cycle first though this fixes the problems lots of the time

HP dv1000 will not boot, no power. Is this a hard

No Power at all sounds like the Internal DC Power Jack that is soldered onto the motherboard is bad. Send it to these guys

Laptop won't power on


Here is the manual in PDF format, that might have the error codes for the three flashing lights. Most likely you are experiencing hardware failure and should look into finding a free Hardware Diagnostic testing software that can be downloaded and booted off a cd.

My power on button doesnt always work well

This can be issue with the Power Button which might have worn out with repeated usage.
I recommend you to contact nearest Service Center and get the Power Button replaced as soon as possible.
