I had a similar problem with an HP laptop. I had to pull out the battery, make sure the laptop was plugged into a power source and then power it on. It should boot up with the battery out. Once it is on and stays on, you can replace the battery and it should charge. If it has Vista, you probably need to add extra RAM to it. When I researched the problem, I found out that the manufacturers were selling notebooks with inadequate RAM for the Vista program. We also had to get a new power adapter for it. We then used the original restore disk to bring it back to its original settings and now it operates so much faster and doesn't stop when downloading from the Internet or from email. Like a brand new computer. (If you use the restore disk make sure to back up all your personal files or anything else you need to put back on that wasn't on the computer originally. The restore disk, which should have been in your original box, will erase everything you added to the hard drive. Easiest way to backup your files is to put them on a memory stick.) I'd be interested to hear if this helps with your problem. Good luck.

Hp dv7 wont turn on


It sounds like your power adapter is not putting out proper voltage...

Try removing the laptop battery and see if the laptop will power on when plugged in with no battery connected. If it will not power on this way, then test with another power adapter. If still no good, then it should go in for service. Please let me know if this helps or not.
