My ENVY 15t will not turn on. I get a blinking power light every 3-5 seconds... but thats it.

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.

Last thing to try is remove the cmos (RTC) battery overnight, put it back in, if you get the bios post screen immediately enter the bios and set the date and time (before windows loads)

 

 

If you get it working, download the latest bios and install it.

 

Then the latest grahics driver.

Has your issue been fixed?  If so please let me know as Im having the same issue, however my notebook just turns on by it self if I leave it alone while the power light is blinking.

I have the same issue. Bios and drivers upgrade does not resolve the issue.

I had the same issue and this is couple of years to late to reply but just incase someone also had the same problem .
Your laptop battery is dying or dead , and your probably leave your power plug plugged all time. This is what I did and it fixed the problem

I took my battery out and power cord at the same time then press and hold the power bottom for 30 sec and plug my power cord WIThOUT the battery. Also never end used the battery again .
Hope this helped
