HP Pavillion Laptop Won't turn on! [Solved]

Ask a question linda - Last answered on Nov 4, 2012 at 04:24 PM by b

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.

Good Luck
