Q: Pavillion g6 power plug light blink but computer won't turn ...

Hi i have a issue with my HP Pavilion g6-2231ec. I used it without battery because battery is dead, just power connector. Notebook works normaly but on a next day it won't turn on. It only blink one time near power plugin. When pressing the power button the button light doesn't even light.I tried to test it with friend power adapter but won't turn on. But we tried to get battery to it (without adapter), and everything works. I decided to change power DC Jack Power Cable and it doesn't help. It is the same. I don't understand what's wrong. Thanks for reply.

My Yoga 3 was bought 3 months ago at a local retailer. It had been an open box model. A couple of nights ago while using it, my wife got a Blue Screen of some variety. Since then, the machine doesn't work at all. When I push the power button (or the reset button next to it), the KB backlight comes on and power light comes on for about a second and then they both shut off. This cycle is repeated indefinitely until I hold down the power button at which time everything goes off. That is the only response I get from the thing. This machine is only 3 months old but I cannot find any way to get in touch with Lenovo for any kind of support, so I thought I would try here first. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Help please! My family and I own the HP Envy 23 all-in-one PC. Unfortunately most recently it has stopped turning on. There power light doesn't show nor are there any noises/ beeps. We have checked the power source, so that doesn't seem to be the problem. We purchased a new adaptor (120 W). I've tried the F10, down button, enter button sequence using the wireless keyboard. Nothing has worked.

I have a Compaq Presario, Windows Vista Basic, around 3 gigs of RAM.

I recently rearranged my room, and when I went to go plug everything back in for my computer, the power supply light started to flicker when it was fine the day before.
I don't remember this ever happening before; it's still green, it just flickers rapidly and I can hear it.
I thought it was a temporary thing, but my power button is completely unresponsive and it will not turn on.

I have had my power supply replaced twice prior, and I fear I may have accidentally surged my power supply when I plugged it back in.
I would like to know if this is the only cause, I have tried different outlets, and even checked to make sure that I didn't mix up my power supply cable with my monitor or printer, but the results are the same.
Even when I unplug any power source, the light flickers and gradually dies, as compared to going out immediately.

The last time I replaced my power supply was around October of 2009, due a faulty fan.
The time before, was October 2007, when the power supply just shorted out.

This time I am completely confused since it was working the day prior, and wonder if my moving it would have caused something. It seems so unlikely, but due to my bad history with power supplies, I am prone to assume it is the same problem.
But if anyone has any other suggestions, please help.

Thank you for your time.

I have an HP desktop. I accidentally hit the standby button on the keyboard. It started to put my computer into standby but seems to have completely powered it down. I couldn't turn it back on at all. I've tried hitting the power button and unplugging the computer. Nothing works. There is a green light near the power cord in the back blinking and that's it. I've tried unplugging all peripherals before plugging the power back in. I've also tried unplugging it and pressing the power button a few times before plugging it back in. I just can't get it to turn back on.

We got a Compaq Presario S6500NX from a friend who had upgraded to another computer and we can't get it to work. It ran fine before he brought it to us, however, once we got it here and tried to power it up it wouldn't start at all.

On the power supply in the back the green light blinks and clicks rapidly when the cord is plugged in, and pressing the power button does nothing at all.

Interestingly, a few minutes ago I took it out of storage, (we got the computer months ago and gave up when we couldn't get it running) plugged it in by itself and it powered up just fine, the fan turned on and everything! So I opened it up and cleaned out some of the dust (I didn't have it plugged into a monitor or anything, I just wanted to see if it was still doing the same thing it had months ago) and, lo and behold, when I tried to turn it on again with everything plugged in, I got the blinking/clicking green light and no power up.

What could be the problem here? I know the whole thing isn't totally shot because it DID power up just fine a few minutes ago. But now we're back to the blinking clicking light (instead of the steady green glow that usually happens when the power supply cord is plugged in). It leads me to believe that something's loose, but I don't dare mess with the power supply box unless I know what I'm doing...

Another question is, if the power supply isn't fixable, would it be possible to replace it with the power supply ... Read more

Hi, this laptop is 2 years old and about a week ago it just failed to switch on. No warning, just one day nothing. When it's connected to the power supply and turned on there's nothing, no faint hum, no fan activation and no charging lights. I've tried changing the AC adapter but the new one has given me the same issue.  I'd like to know if this model is capable of operating without the battery and just connected to the AC supply as if not then I may need to consider replacing the battery but if it can operate then I won't waste the time or money. Sadly this PC is just just a few months out of warranty so I am finding it difficult to get in contact with HP regarding a proper repair. Does anyone have any suggestions as to what might have gone wrong with this computer? Thanks,  AN

My problem is actually similar to the following:
This thread however had no responses.

I know a little more about my problem and hope it can be solved here.. Sorry for making this post so long, but this problem is a real bugger and I'm giving all the info I can.

The problem: When the computer doesn't start
When I plug in the computer, pressing the power button does nothing. This problem is aggravated in winters (weird but true) and when the D-Link ethernet card is plugged in (whichever slot).

When it does start:
In summers, I leave it powered for sometimes, say 20 min.
Gradually the power light on cabinet starts blinking rapidly (on pressing the power button).. a little later the HDD lights also start blinking. The CPU fan turns in jerks and in sync with these lights. A little later, the computer boots normally and works fine after that.
Also, operating it increases the temperature, and subsequently the computer can be made to start without problems.. till it cools down or I disconnect mains.

How I have to start it when it doesn't:
In winters, the above procedure doesn't work. Then I can try one of two things (I usually avoid turning the comp at all, use my laptop instead, since I don't like either method)
I can point a hairdryer from a safe distance at the motherboard, and keep the power button pressed. It starts in a little while.
OR, this is possibly a worse method..... Read more

A:Computer startup problem: power light flickers, fans turn in jerks

Have you replaced the BIOS battery? after 5 years its is most likely dead or nearly dead by now. Get your multimeter on it and check it's voltage (my money is on this)
Have you tested the CPU fan to see if it spins up OK, test on another PC if you have one?
Have you tried booting up to just the POST with NO drives connected with power?
Tried another PSU? Does this PSU work OK in another PC?

When I press the power button, nothing happens. No lights are switched on, neither do they blink, even the power button does not lit. The screen is blank and there is no sound of fan. The light next to the AC adapter connection is red as it should be since it is charging.Generally the power button light is lit immediatelly along with the wifi(f12) button light (red if wifi is off and white if on). I have already tried hard reset option as suggested on this page: http://support.hp.com/us-en/product/HP-Pavilion-15-Notebook-PC-series/6529948/model/6867322/document...However it did not work. I don't know what to do next as there is nothing on that page which says what to do when even power button light is not lit. There was a problem in my laptop before which may be relevant here. Upon switching off, windows would shut down but the fan kept running and the power button wifi button light remained lit. I think the OS would shut down but the laptop hardware somehow remained on. I may have left my laptop in sleep state, when it compulsorily goes into sleep due to less than 10% power on battery. Unfortunately i don't remember.

Hello there!I've been using this monitor for 7 years and I have been encountering this problem for 2 years every time I start up my computer. Now I finally decided to seek solutions for this problem. My monitor power lights up for 3 secs and it disappear for 1-2 secs and lights up again for 3secs and this goes on for 10-15minutes before it could finally show the screen. So it is like 10-15 minutes of black screen and no sign of power. Pressing menu or other buttons doesn't work because it doesn't have any power in it. So I tried a different cord and it has the same problem. I tried a different monitor and both cords are working fine. It is only the monitor itself and I was wondering the monitor could be worn out or there's something wrong with the monitor.Thanks for reading and I hope to receive your help as soon as possible!

I have just bought a new NB10-A-10U laptop.

I have plugged it in but the battery/dc light shows no signs of life.
According to the manual the light should be on.

Is something wrong or everything will operate when i will press the power button?
I would hate the installation process to be interrupted...

Does anyone have a clew if this is normal or something is wrong?

Thanks in advance for any help/advices

A:Satellite NB10-A-10U first plug in power but no DC light


Usually the "DC IN indicator" glows green, white or blue depending on your device when DC power is supplied correctly from the AC adaptor.

Please connect the AC adaptor once again.
Check if there is no lose contact and wait 5-10 min.
The press the power button and check how the unit will act.

Feedback would be appreciated.

HP Compaq PRO 6300 AIO Desktop PC - (Business PC) Hi, My desktop AIO decided to stop working while I was using the computer, then all of a sudden it shut down, when I hit the start button, the PC wouldn't boot into Windows, just a black screen with NO text or images. What is strange is when I plug in the power cord into the mains socket on the wall, the PC starts up to a black screen, this never used to happen, I had to push the ON/OFF button on the PC to usually start the pc. The led light is constantly eluminated RED with no blinking and NO beeping sounds, but the fan starts off slow then after a minute or two the fan speeds up. Would any one know what could be the cause of my issue please. I took the hard disk drive out and installed it on another Windows machine as a secondary drive and ran a virus scan on all partitions using AVAST INTERNET SECURITY "PAID COPY" and AVAST found 3 PUPs trojans and move them all to the virus chest. This machine is only  two and half years  since new and the warranty has elapsed!  Any Help will be greatly appreciated. Cheers from MagicBytes

I have an Alienware 17 R3 and recently updated the BIOS and the other day I noticed the ?annoying? blue ring on the charger switched off, to get it to come back on I need to disconnect from the laptop and switch off and on again. But several times since it will stay illuminated until I plug it in, the laptop hasn?t moved from my desk and the power pack has been under the desk so the only thing I think that could of damaged it would be this update.
It had a replacement motherboard a few months after purchase but now a few months out of warranty, is it only the power supply or worse?

A:Power supply blue light switches off when I plug it into the laptop.

If the LED on the DC plug doesn't stay on reliably, replace the adapter with a new OEM unit first.  If that doesn't solve the problem,  the next suspect is the system's DC jack -- replace this part
If that doesn't solve the problem, the mainboard is bad -- Dell's warranty on replacement parts is 90 days.  If it's been less time than that, have the board replaced again.  If you had it replaced elsewhere, contact the repair shop to find out what warranty they offer on the repair they did.

I first logged out of my computer and came back and I noticed an orange light on the power button. I shut it of and turn it back on about two times with the same results of an orange light. I then shut of the the extension that houses 10 plugs. When I turned on the extension I turned on the computer the power button didn't give off a blue light or orange light. The VGA cable, mouse, keyboard, Ethernet cable are all plugged in. I later removed all the connects to the computer gave it a minute and plugged it all back in. There is a solid green light on the back under the power cable. The fans turn on there is noise coming from inside the computer a soft humming and light fan from the back of the computer. But the power button will not turn on. The monitor light is orange and says "No Input signal Input 2,Go to Power Save." When I switch to input 1 it reads "Cable Disconnected Go to Power Save." What internal issue could this be?

The power supply's green light is on - but pressing the ON button does nothing... no noise, no fan no nothing. Is it that the power supply has gone out - even though the green light is on? Or is it the motherboard?

The other day I decided to turn my envy off for the first time in roughly a week. I usually just leave it on, plugged into the charger, putting it into sleep mode when im not using it. For some reason, ever since then I have not been able to turn it back on. Whenever I press the power button, The power light blinks. The pattern is a single short blink every 3-5 seconds. This continues until I take the battery out. Sometimes, if I leave it be for a day or so, I am able to get the computer to turn on, but It will not boot. I can hear the fan going, see the lights turn on as they are supposed to, however the screen remains black. I am under the impression that this either a hardware issue, or the CPU is just toast. either of which would suck. Normally I would take to a computer shop and have them look at it, but right now I'm serving in Iraq, so im SOL. And yes, I have tried everything under the sun to get it running. I have taken the battery out and left it out for an extended period, tried turning it on with and without the ac adapter plugged in, tried to perform a hard reset, and a combination of all of them.

I have what I presume is a power supply problem:

When I turn my PC on at the plug, the green power light on the front of my case flashes at me, and I can't turn my PC on until it's stopped. The light on the back of the PSU also flashes. Now if it only flashed for thirty seconds, I wouldn't care. What difference does an extra thirty seconds? It's not as if the intarweb is going to die in the space of time it takes for me to turn the PC on at the plug, and then actually turn it on. The fact is, it flashes for a full thirty minutes, which leaves me sat in my chair, twiddling my thumbs. I don't get much time after work between coming home and going to bed, and in those thirty minutes I can get a lot done, which is why its' really starting to annoy me. It started about a month ago, with thirty seconds of flashing, and has slowly built up to thirty minutes.

Now if it's something I can fix with the right-sized hammer, then fine, I'll do it over the weekend, but if it's a case of getting a new PSU, well, I'm building a new computer in four or five weeks, and really don't want to be spending money on a new power supply - I'm going to have to borrow money from my parents as it is.

I've tried plugging the power cable directly into the plug socket, rather than into a surge protector - no difference.
