Light flashes cause battery is critical low.
Try to unplug and then plug in cord again, until front lamp lites on.
If you continue to have this problem, post and I will explain how I solved mine.
Well I had problem that sometimes after plug in or out, battery goes from 100% to 3%, I thought it was battery or adapter, but it was software. I did ask HP about it, they said they had customers with such problem.
You might have same problem.

    If you get it to work, and from time to time your battery drops to 3% or so. (From 100%), you should do next:

    1. Disconnect the AC Adapter.
    2. Remove the Battery.
    3. Hold the Power button down for 30 seconds to 1 minute.
    4. Put Battery back
    5. Reconnect the AC adapter.
    6. Turn on the Notebook power.

    Then you need to perform the steps to Battery Calibrating.

    1. Plug in the AC adapter.
    2. Allow the battery to charge until the Battery Charge light turns
    off, showing that the battery is fully charged.
    3. After the Battery Charge light turns off, unplug the AC adapter.
    4. Turn on or restart your Notebook.

    NOTE: Steps 5 through 8 prevent your Notebook from entering Sleep
    mode. These steps also allow the battery to drain faster.
    5. Click Start and then Control Panel.
    6. Click the Power Options icon to display the Power Options
    Properties dialog box.
    7. Click the Power Schemes tab and select the Portable/Laptop scheme.
    8. From the Running on batteries column:

    a. In the Turn off monitor drop-down list, select Never.
    b. In the Turn off hard disks drop-down list, select Never.
    c. In the System standby drop-down list, select Never.
    d. In the System hibernates drop-down list, select Never.

    9. Let the battery drain until your Notebook reaches Hibernation and
    turns off.
    10. Plug in the AC adapter and restart your Notebook.
    11. Return to the Power Options Properties dialog box, and re-enter
    your power savings settings to the desired level.

    12. Open the Device Manager and then click '+' sign beside Battery.
    Then right click on the entries listed under it and unistall them.
    Once you uninstall the entries, restart the notebook.

    13. Run Battery Health check

    14. See if problem is solved

Flashing lightning bolt on Compaq C300

This sounds like a battery problem. The best way to test this is to remove the battery and then power the laptop up with just the power cord plugged in but no battery. If the computer boots then the battery is bad you will need a replacement. Also try letting the battery charge for a day. Be sure that the charging light is coming on when you have it plugged in.

    Toshiba power led flashing yellow

    This flashing LED usually means only two things, both are quite harmless:

    1. Some laptops will flash the power LED when battery is charging. If this is the case, it should stop when battery is fully charged. This can be presumed if the laptop starts normally while LED flashes. If not, suspect step 2 below:

    2. Your laptop is either "asleep" (suspended) or in "hibernation" mode.It does this if left for a long time with no activity/input from you. You must simply "wake the laptop up" now:

    Look for a symbol on keyboard for "sleeping" (like a half moon with zzzz) and press that key WITH whatever color coded key matches the symbol color (usually "FN" key). If there is no suchkey, press the space bar and hold it down a few seconds.

    Then wait. Can take 60 seconds to "wake up" on slower processors.

    If this does not work, press AND hold the POWER button for 10 seconds. Then wait 60 seconds and press power key again, briefly, to start laptop normally.

    Pressing and holding the power button 6-10 seconds forces a complete system shutdown.

    If this happens often, something may be wrong with APM or ACPI settings/driver. You can go to start menu/settings/control panels/power management and adjust settings (or disable sleep/suspend and hibernation if all else fails to resolve situation)

    good luck.
