My laptop won't turn on! The battery charging light indicates that it is charging but I cannot get it to power on! Could it be that my battery itself died? But wouldn't my laptop still be able to charge if it's connected to the charger even without the battery? Any help would be much appreciated! (:
I suggest you try the hard boot process:
1. remove the battery and disconnect the charger
2. push and hold down the power button for 30 seconds
3. replace the battery and power cord
4. start the laptop normally
This sometimes starts laptops that are stuck in limbo.
Is there anything software-based that I can do not stop this problem long-term? For the past week my HP Pavilion is very temperamental. Sometimes it won't turn on without the hard reboot, sometimes it's fine.
