    With, or without battery, power & charge lights blink.
    No reaction to power switches on laptop.
    Battery tests as low charge.

Sounds like your battery has gone south. See what it does without the battery, just AC.

Dim green light on power supply blinking


If the Power supply LED dims and flickers its either your motherboard circuit has been cut or there is a short in the laptop. The AC adapter is not the cause.

Try this:
Remove the battery, then press power button to drain all the current, then re-install battery and plug to adapter.

If that doesn't work, then it's most likely the motherboard.

On My Dv5-1125nr both the caps lock and num lock keeps blinking when i turn it on. It's wont boot at all. What kind of hardware problem is this?


First remove the battery and power cord for about a minute. Then plug back in and see if that helps. Otherwise please read the following:

LEDs near Caps Lock and Number Lock keys blink when starting notebook The LED lights near the Caps Lock and Num Lock keys will blink if an error is detected during the start up process. The LEDs will blink a number of times in a sequence and then stop. The number of blinks in the sequence indicates what component caused an error when it was being tested during start up. If the LEDs stop blinking and the computer does not start, you can press the power button again to repeat the tests. Count the number of blinks, and use the chart to identify the error condition. Knowing the number of blinks is helpful when you contact an HP support agent for technical help. Caps Lock/Num Lock LED Component Tested Error Condition LEDs blink 1 time CPU CPU not functional LEDs blink 2 times BIOS BIOS corruption failure LEDs blink 3 times Memory Module error not functional LEDs blink 4 times Graphics Graphics controller not functional LEDs blink 5 times System board General system board failure LEDs blink 6 times BIOS BIOS authentication failure

My HP Pavilion Dv 5000 notebook stop working: no power and the power Led is off. I opened it and tested the power cable which is OK; I checked all over the motherboard looking for some damaged or burnt...


Of the two LEDs at the left front of the notebook, if the left-most one is blinking, then the notebook is in standby. If the left-most one is off and the one to the right of it is blinking, then the notebook is in a low battery condition and quite likely the notebook had initiated hibernation. If you had the AC adapter plugged-in for some time and the low-battery condition persists, then likely the adapter has failed. Normally you would just press the power button to restore from hibernation but if the system had initiated hibernation due to a critical low-battery condition, the system may not respond unless you have inserted a fully-charged battery pack. Here is an excerpt from page 38 (Chapter 3 Power) of the HP Pavilion DV5000 User Manual....

*If the system initiated hibernation because of a critical low-battery condition, connect external power or insert a

charged battery pack before you press the power button. (The system may not respond if the discharged battery pack
is the only power source.)

Battery led is blinking, this usually means your battery is faulty. Try replacing the battery with a new or tested second hand one.

Hope this helps
