    Identical problem. Lightning bolt flickers three times when you press power switch. Whether I have the computer on battery power or even plugged in to A/C power, the result is the same. The lightning bolt flickers three times and no other sign of life. I have noticed that my screen images had become somewhat faded the past few days before it went totally dead.

Flashing orange light generally indicates battery low charge could be your battery at fault
the next time you try and power on and it doesnt work, take the battery out (unplug AC) and try to run just on AC power
hope helps, let me know if can help further

I have a gateway ma7 laptop and press power and get nothing


When the computer is off, unplug the power cord from the laptop and then plug it back in. See if the charge light (lightning bolt symbol next to the led) comes on or turns green/blue. If it doesn't your power supply may not be working, even if the light on the supply is on. Second is the battery may be damaged. Remove the battery and see if you can power on at all.
If it boots with only the cord, the battery is bad/shorted forcing shutdown.

Wont Turn on, Monitor Flashes a bit


oops, I did see the model on your Presario.

This sounds like it could be the motherboard or power circuitry.

If the DC jack was replaced, and the AC adapter, I would say the motheboard is bad. I have seen this on many models, not just the Hps.

If your laptop is under warranty, I would definately contact HP. If you have a local repair shop, that is probably your next best bet.

Receiving Charge will not turn on


Take out the battery and only have the ac adaptor hooked up to the laptop and then try to turn it on.

If that doesn't work, then the motherboard is faulty. Probably a short in the motherboard but the whole thing would need to be replaced.

Also make sure your using the correct adaptor as well.

FLASHING AMBER UNDER LIGHTNING SYMBOL


Is it an amber lightning bolt? (I am assuming thats what you mean by UNDER lightning symbol)

That is the charging symbol for your battery, it means your battery is being charged by your power adapter.

Flashing lightning bolt on Compaq C300


This sounds like a battery problem. The best way to test this is to remove the battery and then power the laptop up with just the power cord plugged in but no battery. If the computer boots then the battery is bad you will need a replacement. Also try letting the battery charge for a day. Be sure that the charging light is coming on when you have it plugged in.
