This usually happens if the battery is completely dead and needs recharging for awhile. Unplug the battery and try to turn it on if you want to test this immediately.

Otherwise the power adapter might be malfunctioning. These are fairly cheap on Ebay (10-20$) I have bought one of these and it works just fine. But you can also buy brand name ones at computer retail stores for exorbitant prices of 80-100$.

    The above is the appropriate solution if the POWER light is blinking. If all the lights blink/stay on, and removing the battery doesn't solve the problem, or even hard resetting it by holding down the power button for 30-60 seconds; this is a problem caused by the video card overheating and eventually separating from the laptops motherboard. There are fixes detailed on Youtube for this, but even then the problem usually resurfaces again due to heat.

Try another cord/charger with the EXACT same power specs. Has the cord been pulled while it was plugged into the laptop damaging the AC jack? If you have a multimeter you can verify you are getting the correct DC volts at the laptop ac jack plug. Try HP Support for a explanation of the small led blinking: http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/ProductList.jsp?locale=en_us&taskId=135&prodSeriesId=5060880&prodTypeId=321957

Hi i press the power button ,the fan run for 3 seconds then shut down again. the power supply blinking just once. nothing else happen. help me.


Could either be a faulty fan causing the pc to emergency shutdown to prevent damage, or faulty ROM/BIOS hardware. You will need to have a professional look at it to be absolutely sure.

Bootin problem


This could be a number of issues. What you are referring to is known as failing to post. The culprit behind this error is most likely motherboard or memory. If you have 2 sticks of memory, try taking one out. If nothing swap memory again. Still nothing, have motherboard looked at.

Nc6220 PC Notebook won't boot up


Motherboard. Your best bet is to purchase another computer. If you can however get the motherboard at a cheap price, then go ahead and change it. I would check ebay first.

Sleep Mode Lockup on Dell Inspirion 530 w/ Vista


Try hitting the "Windows" key on your keyboard to bring it out of sleep mode. The "Windows" key is generally found on the bottom row of the keyboard, near the Alt and Ctrl keys, and it has no letters on it, just the Windows logo. That key brings my Windows Vista machines out of sleep mode when other keys won't.

As for the power button, anytime you need to force a computer to turn off, you can press and hold the power button to do so. Usually, you need to hold the power button for 5-10 seconds and it will shut down. Use this option with caution, as it turns the computer off without running through the shutdown process and can cause you to lose data.

Hope this helps.

HP Laptop


Try this,

Unplug the laptop, remove the battery from the underside (there should be a catch to push, and the battery will pop out). Then wait a few seconds and put the the power cord back in and the battery. Hold down the on button for a few seconds and boot it up.
