It sounds as if the battery is too low to power the unit on.
Firstly insert the battery. When you plug the PSU into the machine does a charging light turn on? If not then check the fuse in the mains plug as it may have blown. If the fuse is OK then you may have a defective PSU, although the motherboard could also be defective. Try a new PSU to determine if which component is faulty.
Now remove the battery and insert the PSU. Will the machine turn on or do any power lights illuminate? If power lights illuminate and the machine will not turn on then I would suggest the motherboard is at fault. If the machine turns on briefly the turns off before displaying the splash screen then I would suggest the RAM, CPU or motherboard is at fault.
If the unit works without the battery installed then it is probably a battery problem, although it is possible the charging circuit n the motherboard is fried.
Hope this helps,

E system 1212 Laptop won't switch on. Power


Laptops are so integrated that usually a system failure that involves power issues such as in your case where you cant get it turn on with anything on the screen mean the mainboard (motherboard) is damaged. This usually leads to buying a new laptop or paying for the board to be replaced which usually costs as much as the laptop.

My HP 6720 won't switch on. When connected to the power source, a steady blue light comes on (normal) then goes to a light blue then goes blank. If I press the 'on' button, a flashing orange light appears...


1. Take the battery out of the laptop & try to turn on the laptop using power adapter only. If the computer turns on, then the battery is defective & needs to be replaced.
2. Make sure the power adapter is not defective. Test the output voltage of the power adapter using a voltmeter. Compare the voltmeter reading to the nominal value written on the adapter or the laptop.
3. If you have another processor which is compatible with your laptop's model, try swapping processors & test to see if the laptop will work.
4. The power button could be bad.
5. The motherboard could be defective & needs to be replaced.

Problem with extended battery


LED indicator for your laptop model
Steady Blue = Battery charged and AC adapter plugged in
Amber = Battery charging and AC adapter plugged in
Slow Amber Flash = <10% battery life
Fast amber flash = 3% remaining TPC will automatically go into hibernate
Slow flashing amber Adapter plugged in = Overheat condition

Do you have a multimeter to test the battery that you are using? check the output current of the battery.

Not powering on


You will need to take it in for repair. This is most likely a power supply problem.
