Well, holding down the right bottom corner of the screen definitely resets the unit but unfortunately, that's all it did. The unit stills powers up, then powers down. This is unit fully charged, don't understand.

Yes, there is a way to reset it. You can try the reset button under the faceplate, or a Master Reset. Keep in mind, a Master Reset WILL ERASE ALL OF YOUR FAVORITES. In order to do a Master Reset the unit must be off. Press and hold the bottom right of the screen, then press the on button. Keep pressing the screen until the unit asks if you are sure you want to reset. Follow the prompts. To use the reset button, you must remove the faceplate carefully (put your fingernail or another object in the indentation on the top of the faceplate, and pull it toward you). Then press the reset button on the right hand side of the unit.

Could be a problem with the memory card. Please try to remove that then power up and see if the issue is resolved. If not, it could be a problem with the internal circuitry. If this is the case, then unfortunately, there is no other go except to get the device service.

Your machine is getting on now. clear your drive up from DOS and windows ( delete unneeded files at start up, not through windows if possible.

HP 530 Notebook will shut off by its self and when you restart it and will show you that windows was not shut down properly. Could it need a new battery?


The problem lies with the power supply system either in the power adopter or inside the laptop. When AC power is plugged in, the system shows that the battery is being charged (Yellow Light Indicator switches ON) but practically niether the battery is usually being charged nor the computer is being run by the AC power. Its a little bit of energy left in the battery that keeps running you computer for some time and as soon as the battery is discharged the note book shuts down by itself.
However, the Taskbar battery indicator gives the correct picture of battery charge and the charging process. Better rely on that.
Its a hardware problem pertaining to power supply and charging system and doesn't have to do any thing with Mother board, RAM, Hard disks or other hardware installed in the PC.
Do tell the above details to a repair workshop man to rectify the problem.... Best of Luch
