Hello, I have an HP 8510p laptop. Actually, two of them.
One died a couple months ago. I hit the power button, with battery in and AC plug connected, and the charging light on the front left side of the machine blinks 8 times, nothing else happens.
I recently moved and have not plugged in my main laptop (just shut lid to hibernate). It was not used for about 4 days. Now, it is doing the same thing.
Come to think of it, I do some basic PC repair. I had an HP DV7 and an older Compaq model, both had issues like this. Any help? Googling "charger light blinks 8 times" returns nothing.

Please look at this:
Sadly to say, could be a bad motherboard.
