Power button has light turning on and off with no other signals !!

Hi Shah...I own a HP compaq (presario c500) - been just 6 months. The power signal continuously turns on and off when I switch the computer on. The screen is blank and there are no other signals such as battery/charger being displayed. I have tried removing the battery and connected the laptop to AC power only - but to no avail.

Will appreciate your assistance.

Good afternoon i have a compaq presario CQ61. the problem is when i turn it on the wireless network takes to much time to get ready. before i mean one year it was working good. tanx shah from Italy


I would suggest going to the HP site and see if there are any updated network drivers available. Also, has anything changed regarding the wireless router or access point? Are there other people using the access point? Has the router been moved so that there is something interfering with the signal?
These are a couple of things to check.

Laptop not powering


try a simple power cycle. Take out the battery, leave power adapter plugged in. Hold down the power button for about one minute. Then hit the power button normally this should correct the problem

Comp will not turn on also see lightning bolt display


Hi All,


This happens because of static energy storing in the motherboard components.

We can try power drain to resolve this issue.


Try doing power drain by taking out the battery & keep holding down the power button for complete one minute to drain out the power from the computer components. Restart the computer after putting the battery in.
Try restarting the computer only with the AC power, without the battery & vice-versa.

That should resolve the issue, if the issue persists, then you have to contact service center.


Hope that information helped you!!

Black Screen / Computer Stays in Standby Mode


Completely remove the battery and unplug the power cord for a few minutes. Reinsert battery and power up. You can also hit F8 when starting and see if you can boot into safe mode.
