    did you completely charge the battery before using it. I can't recall ever having a laptop that failed to work after changing batteries. is the battery the correct replacement for the laptop. try taking the battery out and putting the old one back in and see if it boots then .

Will it run on ac only? meaning with the battery out. if so the new battery may have issues. remove the battery and see if it comes on with the ac adapter if it does take the battery back.

I have a HP laptop that won't power up. I put in a new battery, and bought a new AC adapter. Now lights nothing. It was running than just quick and I haven't been able to get it to come back o

Hi There,
If you've got a multimeter - test your AC adapter to see if it is outputting the correct voltage for your laptop. If it is, Then you've got an HP boat anchor. Unfortunately HP laptops are known for their overheating issues, and if this is the case, a lawsuit filed against said manufacturer means you may be able to be compensated for your loss.

Screen replacement.taking the old off and installing the new

OK this is sorta ez and hard. Before you start unplug and take out battery. Ok on most laptops on the top part of the keyboard area is space where there are buttons for volume/power/etc. That piece comes off by using a tiny screw driver. Look for a little dip in the plastic it unsnaps there by popping it up. once this is off you remove the keyboard by removing either the 2 or 3 screws that hold it down. Now dont yank the keyboard out since there is data cable you need to pull out. By holding the keyboard in 45 degree you can pull the data plug from its socket. Now you have the keyboard out and from there u can see that there is a cable that runs to your lcd. Unplug it. That was the worst part of the ordeal. Now close your LCD and turn the lappy over and directyl under the lcd hinge under the laptop should be a tiny bolt holding the hinge down. Remove those and then open the laptop up at and try to pull the LCD out if it still dont come out then there are 2 more screws on each hinge u need to remove. Now it should come off. VIola its done now just put back the new one in same fashion. First hinges

I have a HP NC 6120 laptop.I have the batt in and the PS plugged in.All that happens is the Charge Light Blinks yellow 6 times then green 1 time,repeats.At the sametime the power light comes on for 6 sec...

It's probably a bad battery BUT I've noticed this problem pretty often from this model. I would check HP's site for a bios upgrade and I'd also check your warranty status because they just updated they're list of computers that they're extending the warranty on that have the same problem.

you have to remove the bios batt to flash the password if it is ot working most of the time this means disassembling the lappy completly to get to the small hairaid style batt on bottom of the mobo leave out for atleast ten minutes unplugged and main batts out of system.

Lappy is dead mon.

question: have you replaced the RAM by yourself??? do you get the problem before or after the replacement?

if you get the problem after replacement your RAM probably have static groundings... it was get from not demagnitizing your hands and tools before installing a RAM... if you still got the old RAM... clean the contact points and the RAM socket first and test the old RAM to your unit... if you stop having problems just return your 2gb RAM and ask for a replacement...
