The problem could be with the battery. Try plugging the laptop in with the battery removed and see if it boots. If it does, then the problem is most likely a dead battery; but before you go out and buy a new one, leave the battery out of the laptop for about 24 hours and let it drain its battery, and then give it one last try. If it still doesn't boot, then its possibly the motherboard and the laptop needs to be replaced. Best of luck!

The amber color of the light is an indication of a motherboard malfunction ..and this is the reason it does not work ...It can be something related with a poor contact or a CPU issue ..but usually when this light is on ...it means you need a motherboard for it cause the one in discussion is dead ..

The System / Motherboard has faulty Power Circuit. Contact HP and arrange a repair. If under warranty won't cost anything.

Solid amber light ON Dell Inspiron 530 desktop.The Fans start and stop immediately.The mother board has the power ON Amber light.


The Yellow Light of Death, anyway turn on Your PC, as it starts You will here some beeps especially on a Dells. Count the beeps , there will be a slight pause so it will beep once then pause then beep again. Count the beeps and that will be Your code. Go to Dell Support site and look up code. Most of the time a Yellow amber light means that there is trouble with Your Motherboard but thats not to say its the Motherboard itself, it could have possibly burned out Your RAM, Processor, Heat fan, even the power supply itself. So look up the code and at least You'll have a better chance of finding the solution, Good Luck

Power/battery problem


hi, try removing the batt press and hold the power down for 1 minute, dont replace battery yet, plug in charger, boot up then shut down. replace battery and boot.
if this fails you could also try changing your power settings in control panel. change to minimal power managment.
remove the adapter while laptop is on and allow to completly drain(untill it switches off)
then try reboot.

On HP 530 notebook battery/power indicator is always on as long as battery is connected and even when ac power is connected the situation is still the same.


Clarification of your battery/power led indicator:

Solid amber:
Battery is charging at 0% - 89% capacity

Solid green:
Battery is charging at 90% - 99%

Blinking amber:
Battery is low

Led is of:
Battery is charged
