    does not start up ,but light blinks three times. Am trying to replace the battery-but HP sent the wrong one. As soon as I get a refund for the wrong battery, will see if the correct battery solves the problem. But all the other blogs seem to suggest that the problem is the mother-board? HELP!

    I have the same prob. I have a Compaq V6000, it was running perfectly when I left the house, I came back 2 hours later and it was off (odd because I don't remember turning it off). I hit the power button and nothing happens (no fan, no noise, no nothin), but the blue light under the lightning bolt symbol blinks 3 times.

    So, here is what I have done so far. I unplugged the power cord, took the battery out, and held the power button for about 30-40 seconds. I then plugged the cord back in without the battery, and nothing even blinks. Then, I put the battery back in, and again i get the blinking lights, 3 times.

    Any ideas? I am about to just go buy a new power cord, but if this is something else, I need to get this fixed. Thanks!

HP Compaq Presario CQ60 Won't Charge

Three blinks in a row is the LED code for a memory issue.

Turn the laptop over, remove the panel over the RAM, remove the DIMMs (it will likely have 2 in it), place one in at a time and try powering the system on.

One of the two is likely bad although it is possible (although very unlikely) that both are bad. It should boot up when the good DIMM is in place. Once you have identified the bad one, buy a replacement or possible choose to upgrade the total amount of RAM.

MD2614U will not turn on. red light blinks three times

The first thing to do is check that the charger is putting out the correct voltage, which should be ~19 volt. Then try to start it without the battery.If your voltage is OK and the battery out makes no difference, then I would suspect that you have a motherboard problem that must be fixed. If the computer starts up if you wiggle the DC plug where it goes into the computer, then it's the DC jack that is looks and must be re-soldered.

The dead laptop charger may be another cause. Try a new and correct one:

1721 Inspiron shows flashing amber, three times, then blue.

The cells in the battery are starting to go bad which is why the light is blinking the way it is.

Once you get a new battery put in there the light will stay blue instead of flashing amber.
