Rest my pavilion HP laptop not working but turn on button blinks when I put the charger in

NOTE: Yes, I know some batteries are not so easy to get to, on some devices. However, it should be removable/replaceable. Unless it is under warranty, then you should contact the manufacturer first.

Try the following and see if it will turn on...

1. Unplug your charger cord.
2. Remove the battery.
3. Press and hold the "Power" button for 30 seconds.
4. Now plug back in the power/charger cord.
5. Now put the battery back in.

If this doesn't help, then test the power cord to see if it is good. Either try your cord in another device, or try another devices cord in your laptop. You may also want to try charging it when the device is off, rather than on. If it works then, the cord is probably the issue.

Should that not be the problem, then check the battery to see if it needs replacing.

If you do not feel comfortable doing this yourself, then I would try a local tech.

Hi. that's odd, mine too! I took the battery out and put it back in and trying to start it up. Only gave me 2 choice click on F1 restart enivorment or esc. I hope this works it might be battery. I have college classes starting in a few week. Please let me know if you were able to get yours going too. Thanks Sara.
