Sounds like the motherboard is getting power to the lights but not to the rest of the computer. try to drain all the power out of the laptop by unplugging it and holding the power button for 30 seconds. Then plug it back in and try again if this does not fix it your motherboard is probably shot and would need replaced.

Pavilion dv4 1220us blink code 1


have you unplugged, remove battery, plug in, reboot? Try another Cord/Charger with the EXACT same power specs. Has there been any damage to the AC jack due to pulling on the cord while plugged in? Verify your DC voltage at cord plug that fits into the AC laptop jack. Have you reseated/replaced the Memory Mods? The CMOS battery? The HDD ? It sounds like a Power issue as it the Cord/Charger/AC/DC Transformer? Hard to say from here without a MultiMeter to verify. Look at HP support: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/documentSubCategory?tmp_task=solveCategory&cc=us&dlc=en&lc=en&product=3860431

MODEL LT2016U WONT BOOT UP


Is it trying to boot up or is it doing absolutely nothing when you plug in the power cord and hit the power button?

When you plug in the power cord is there any lightswhatsoever on the laptop, where the plug goes in or on the AC Adapter of thepower cord?

When you press the power button do you hear fans running, hard drive spinning,lights on the computer, hear any beeps or lights constantly blinking, hear theDvD/CD drive click and the light on the drawer of the DvD/CD turn on for asecond or two? If so the laptop is trying to boot or may have booted, butthe screen is not showing for some reason.

Beep tones and blinking lights tells the technicians what is going on with thelaptop and why it is not booting. Most times it's a motherboard issuewhen you hear beeps or blinking lights continuous.

Maybe your power cord is bad if you don't get anything to happen whatsoeverwhen you press the power button. And if that's true maybe you wasoperating off the battery the last time you had it on and since the power cordis bad, it was not charging the battery so the battery is drained and the powercord is bad.

Maybe you have a Static Charge Buildup. Remove the Power Cord, Remove theBattery, then Press and Hold the power button for 30seconds. After 30 seconds plug the power cord back in (leave the batteryout) and hit the power button to see if it boots. If it does, you can putthe battery back in and let it charge.

Power cord


this model has a 110v or 220v power supply built into it.
Make Sure it the matching required voltage on its case if you plug 220v power point into a 110v rated power supply inside the laptop it will let out lots of smoke and stop working !

The part number is 255135-AA1

Compaq armada 7400 does not turn on


Please turn off the Computer and disconnect the AC Adaptor then remove the Battery. Next, try cleaning the metal contacts on the Battery and reseating the RAM modules.Then, connect only AC Adaptor to the Computer and try to turn it ON without the Battery. If the Computer doesn't turn ON then disconnect the AC Adaptor and insert the Battery then try turning ON the Computer. If the issue persists even after performing all the above steps then service will be required.

Laptop


Most laptops will run without the batteries, its only a few that won't however I do not know for your specific laptop. So its a possibility. Although, the two lights mean that the unit has power so its likely that it doesn't need a battery and the laptop won't boot.

Do you know what the green flashing lights represent?

Does not power up


its alright..usually, the total charging time of Laptops is about an hour or two. What is unique in laptops is becuase it has automatic cut-off charging feature that your laptop has the ability to turn off the charger when its already battery full no matter how many hours you've using it.

just enjoy what your doing.ok? =)
