HP Pavilion M6-1045DX :: Laptop Power Light Flashing And Won't Turn On
Sep 1, 2014
I have a HP Pavilion M6-1045DX laptop and I recently tried to plug it into a display through the Analog RGB and I saw a spark and the laptop shut off. During that time I ran the laptop straight from the AC adapter without a battery because I don't really use it.So the laptop shut off and I tried turning it back on and nothing happened. The charge indicator light turned off even though it was still plugged in. I thought maybe the power adapter stopped working or something but I tested it with a voltmeter and there was still power in it.
So I decided to put the battery in and the laptop was able to turn on, but after a while, this one area that i never felt heat there before was really hot and later smelled like something was burning.But anyway, when it booted up, the screen resolution was really low and was on maximum brightness. When the laptop finished booting, it randomly started installing drivers (such as the WLAN and intel rapid storage) and yeah. Sound doesn't work either. I tried to plug the laptop back in and the battery won't charge.I turned it off and took out the battery and tried running it off from the AC adapter only but the power light was blinking constantly and when I press it, the WiFi button light (F12) turned on for a second and back off. I also hear this high frequency noise that I never heard before somewhere in the laptop.
My laptop wont turn on, whenever I press the power button all the lights light up for about a second, I here the fans turn on and then it shuts off. When I plug the charger in the the charger light blinks, but thats it.
I'm trying to fix my fathers laptop so he won't have to spend money on a new one. Here's the problem:
When I press the power button to boot the laptop it does not boot, it just flashes the power light(s) on and off at maybe 1 flash per second. I've tried removing the RAM-sticks one and one, removing the HDD, removing the battery and removing the DVD reader (not all at the same time, of course). None of those helped, it still did the same thing.
Then I tried to blind flash the bios from a CD, the laptop comes on with the fan at full blast, the DVD reader comes on and it stays on, but it never finishes and powers off.
I just bought my HP Pavilion 360 less than a month ago and it's only been used for schoolwork and research. No virus or threats were detected. It was working fine today until I had to charge it. When it was fully charged, I turned it on and the screen just froze. I tried shutting it down by pressing the power button but it didn't work. Now, the screen's just black but the power button's lit up (meaning it's turned on). What do I do?
One of my users brought me this issue the other day. He is using a Latitude D830 laptop with a D/port docking station. With or without the laptop docked, The power button on the docking station flashes Orange and Green when powered. I've swapped power bricks for the dock. The laptop still seems to charge while being docked. After swapping the dock, the new dock is fine.
What might be causing it? Is the dock dead? Could it be a failed port on the docking station?
My Latitude D800 laptop recently had trouble to turn on. When pressed the power button (no matter how hrad or hard long to press), nothing happened, totally dead, power light didn't turn on at all. I tried with battery (two batteries) only, AC power only and both, same thing, but sometimes it could be turned on when I waited for a while or came back later and tried again.
I have a dell inspiron 15r 5521 laptop. Yesterday when I tried to turn it on it won't boot, even the POST or the BIOS won't show up. I removed the battery and power supply and press down the power button for a long time and repeated it a lot of times too but no luck. I removed the HDD, RAMs and the CMOS battery and kept it that way for 5 mins and put them back in but it was still the same. I noticed that whenever I enter the ac adaptor into the laptop the fan moves for like 100millisecond and the light on the caps lock button lights up for the same amount of time then it all goes silent. Same happens when I press the power button with only the battery inserted.
All what happens when I try to turn it on is that the power indicator light on the laptop turns on(white color, which is the normal color for this laptop), and that's it. The light don't blink or anything at all. No beep sound. The fan, HDD everything remains silent. Only that light stays on until I unplug it from ac and remove the battery. Pressing down the power button doesn't turn it off either. No other indicator light such as the wifi's, hdd's, battery's light doesn't turn on.
I have an Acer Aspire V3 551 8469. It is out of warranty. The indicator power light blinks 4 to 5 times and nothing happens after. I got adventurous and opened it up. I replaces the cord that receives the power coupling from the ac. Still not working. I was told it could be the motherboard but there is no guarantee that is the issue. If it is the mother board I will just have to get one and put it in.
This is a late 2008 build Dell Inspiron 1545, sold retail in December 2010.
Pentium dual core T4500, 2.3 GHz
Has been in irregular use as a spare machine, mains adapter only, battery removed. My house was struck by lightning over a year ago and adapter damaged. Replaced adapter and no further issue until now.
Laptop would not power up, no light. Tested adapter and tried another 2 adapters - still no power up. Replaced original adapter and plugged in depleted battery - powered up but had to press F1. Powered up with no issue with good battery. Once powered up the laptop seems to be charging battery OK. Guessed this was a power board issue but no change when replacement fitted.
I have a Pavilion M6 1045DX laptop and the HD crashed. It was 750GB so off to eBay I went to buy another one. I decided to buy a NEW SEALED HD so I bought a blue label WD brand new. (March 2014) Just for grins I wiped and verified the drive and it passed. I temporarily installed a 40GB hard drive to build the machine while I was waiting for the new drive figuring I would just clone it when it arrived. When I went to clone the test drive to the new drive I received an error about block sizes. I use the Apricorn DriveWire and have seen this on a rare occasion. I thought maybe a different cloning software would work but to no avail. Same error.
Rather than fight with it I decide to put the new 750 drive in the laptop and build it all over again. This is when I received this error.“Windows setup could not configure Windows to run on this computer's hardware”So, I grabbed another blue label 160GB WD drive and it installed Win 7 fine on the laptop. I then took the 750GB drive and installed in on an old IBM T61 and it too installed fine. I also installed the new 750GB drive on a Dell inspirion N5040 laptop with complete success. Why the new 750GB WD drive gives me this error on "only" the HP Pavilion M6? This laptop doesn’t have RAID and was NOT Built for windows 8. It came with Windows 7. And yes I’ve reset the bios back to factor standards!
So last night my laptop was running fine on battery power, but then it was running low, so I plugged in the power cord. Nothing happened. Since the adapter at the laptop end was falling apart and duct-taped anyways, I figured it was just conking out, but then I saw the indicator light on the power brick was off.
With some experimentation, I found that if I moved it to a different outlet, the light would come back on, but if I plugged it into my laptop, the light would die, and I would have to again move it to a different outlet (the same one as first would work fine) to get the indicator light back on. It works in other Dell laptops. Other adapters do the exact same thing.
So I'm guessing there's a problem with my laptop wiring that's causing a short or something. (Apologies for my shallow electrical knowledge.) But it was working last night on battery power. Until the battery died completely this morning, it would power up. So it's not an electrical problem that kills the laptop.
I have a Dell Inspirion 1526 that when I turn on the laptop, the blue power light comes on and the lights all come on but the screen is black. I here my laptop running but it looks like my screen just stopped working. I wasnt sure what it was so I bought a new battery to see if that was the problem and the screen still does not come on. I had this laptop for about 3 years and thought it was the battery or charger and its not.
I have a HP Compaq 2230S business laptop, but this question could be put to any HP laptop. The fan is constantly running when the laptop is plugged into the power outlet, but as soon as I pull the plug to run on battery power the fan powers down and stops. I re-plug the laptop back in and the fan kicks up again.
This is not good as I almost burned myself when I picked up the laptop after an hour sitting on the table on battery power. The hard drive is right beside the processor, so the laptop gets really hot.
Vista x64 Ultimate is what I'm using at the moment and my power scheme calls for 1% minimum and 100% maximum CPU on battery power.
I have a major problem with my hp pavilion dv6-3143sa laptop.
I put it to a shop and they told me it was a motherboard/cpu problem and they couldn't source parts. I managed to get the parts. I put the motherboard first, but didn't work. I then added the cpu and put on thermal paste, but still didn't work.
My laptop will power on but I'm still getting a blinking light on the caps lock button and a black screen.
Have a question for you. Last night I had my laptop connected up to the ECM of my car (for diagnostics purposes) and went for a drive with it connected to the ECM. No Problem. Got back from the trip and the battery was down to 4% so I promptly shut it down (after turning the car off).
I plugged the charger in and the battery is back up to 100% but for some reason the orange flashing battery light on the laptop keeps flashing. I have taken the power pack out and the battery is ok, works as per normal
After replacing the fan, I have a power up issue with the laptop. Basically, the laptop will only power on with the power cable disconnected at the motherboard. It was by mistake that after the fan was replaced and everything was put back together, that I noticed that the battery was not charging.
I then reopened the machine and reconnected the power cable to the motherboard and nothing - no power.
When plugging in the power source with the battery in place, the LED adjacent to the power socket lights up WHITE then stays ORANGE and will not power up. No other lights, no fan noise, nothing.
If I remove the battery, the LED adjacent to the power socket lights up WHITE and stays white however will not power up either. Same agin, no other LEDs, not fan noise, nothing.
I have now opened the machine back up and disconnected the power from the motherboard. Put it all back together and the laptop powers up as normal with the battery and it works fine. (Well until the battery runs out anyway).
I've got an Acer Aspire 5313 and I've never had any problems with it.
Last night it shut itself down to install updates when I was out of the room, so I left it off and didn't notice anything wrong. But today when I went to power it up I noticed that the battery light was flashing orange/amber while the power light was a solid orange and there was no indicator that it was plugged in.
If I unplug it and power it up the light stays a solid green, like normal, and I've got an almost full charge, but the instant I plug it in the light starts flashing amber/orange again and it doesn't seem to recognise that I've plugged the cord in.
I've tried a bunch of different 'solutions' that I've been able to find but none of them worked. I haven't downloaded anything in a while and I don't go anywhere near BIOS, since I've got no idea what I'm doing. I know very little about computers though, so there were some 'solutions' that I've not tried yet.
I use this for school, so it's used frequently for hours at a time. If it's simply a new power cord for it, which is what I first thought it might be, that's fine. But the green light on the power supply turns on normally, so I'm not sure that that's the problem.
What does a Quickly flashing yellow/orange battery light mean?
I bought a replacement battery pcga-BP2E for my sony vaio vgn 417M.It ran off the battery and showed it was charging but % didn't go up. Every time I connect the power cable the battery light flashes rapidly and I can't find in any manual what it means.
Using my original working battery the battery light flashes slowly as it should and the laptop works ok.
10 days and I am still waiting for a relpy from the supplier atleast I started my complaint through paypal.
Anything I do on this machine, the HD lights barley goes out. It just keeps flashing. I think it is what slowing my machine down. When i am playing a game, I get laggy fps and what not and I think it is the HD slowing it downs. Even when the machine is doing nothing the HD light is solid. I ran the HP HD tests and it found no issues. My "File searching index" for vista is turned off. I have enable write chaching and enable advance proformance enabled. Any ideas? I am getting pissed off with this becasue it really laggs my system down. It is a decent system when it works right..
When I put my Dell XPS 13 Ultrabook to sleep either with the power button, or closing the lid, the light on the front of the until will flash. I haven't timed it exactly, but it flashes for several minutes, but eventually stops flashing. When I wake it up from sleep, it seems about the same whether or not the light was flashing.
Why the light eventually stops flashing and what it means? It isn't because the battery died, and it isn't going into Hibernate because this laptop doesn't have that option.
