We had the same issue. We found a motherboard onling and replaced it. The laptop worked for about 3 months or so and did the same thing again. It just stopped working and no lights would come on. It appears it is a defect in the laptop itself that fries motherboards/power supplies. Very disappointed in the products failure. When it worked it was great.

I think there is a design flaw on this laptop. My GF parents have this laptop and I have replaced the Motherboard twice. HP laptops get very hot and have poor cooling causing the chips to burn. Both motherboards I have replaced the chips were burned. My GF has a laptop similar and I bought her a good laptop cooler to try to keep it cool. The laptop cooler has helped but I think without it that board will go bad soon. To the OP about buying another board and not seeing anything maybe the screen connection was not seated all the way and loose.

Even I am facing the same problem.I bought it just 5 days back.Yesterday it was in perfect condition.I shut it down in the night and when I tried to start it today morning it doesnt respond.The power doesnt turn on at all.
But the battery is getting charged.Thats the only light that is turned on when connected to power supply.
