Question about HP Pavilion dv2610us Notebook
I recovered my hp pavillion dv2500 laptop with the hard drive to reformat the computer back to original factory settings. Now it will not turn on. I tried taking out battery and using the ac cord and it worked for a few minutes then nothing. When the battery is in the lightning bolt flashes 3 times and that's it. I will buy a new battery but I can't believe it went dead that fast, and shouldn't it work with the battery out and the ac cord plugged in? What should I do?
Kinda strange. Not turning on indicates a hardware problem, you made software changes. If the software changes caused a problem, it would start, just not boot to windows. I would first tryy to reset the laptop. Unplug it and remove the battery, hold down the power button for 60 seconds, then try again. If still no go, start removing hardware one at a time, hard drive, rem, wireless card, dvd rom. You may have a bad hard drive. Your pc should boot to bios if there is no hard drive installed. If that happens, run a diagnostic on your hard drive from your bios. Let me know if you need anything else.
