Night before leaving on a business trip, my G60 presents with all the symptoms mentioned in this thread. Thanks for the information, the few minutes of holding down the power button saved me the cost of a new laptop. Many thanks!

Pefect, got it back from Bet buy, the only issue we had was a leaking lcd dsplay and a coule of keys missing on the board. Got it back with a replaced display, keyboard and harddrive. TG for the backup we did.
Regardless, when we took it home from the Quality Service inspector, #10 at Best Buy Frisco store. They didnt even bother to boot it up or show that worked, so we got it home and it would not powerup, battery, no batt, cord, no cord, the only option I tyried was the hard reset as posted by this user edbergjun. Thanks. So far so good, need to load OS see how it go's... Thanks again..

I totaly agree with you all. I used to be a total HP fan and bought a Sony Laptop for myself a few years ago and when my wife was needing a laptop I bought her a G60 because it did more than the Sony and I had great experience with HP. Her laptop lasted until the warenty was over then it died, same reason as your alls.
I will never buy another HP product again! There was no excuse for that poor performance and for the record when she complained about it being hot I got her a laptop tray cooling fan to make sure her laptop did not over heat. It mattered not the stupid thing died.

This was an old post, but I just experiencd the problem others were having, no power to the pc. I was skeptical but tried it anyway. To my surprise and amazment the pc powered up. This post saved me $303.79. Thanks,

My 24 month old Laptop seemed it was displaying the same symtoms as most in this post described. To be more specific when I pushed the powerbutton the charge light would blink 3 times but the laptop would not power up. I have no light on the side where you plug the wall charger in. I tried several times to do what this thread suggests.
It did not work for me! :-( Looks like I will be buying a new laptop.........

I cannot get my laptop to turn on. I have changed the RAM and everything. When I attempt to power it on it just runs and runs and runs but the screen never lights up. I have tried plugging it into my TV via HDMI to see if the screen just wasnt working, but it doesn't work there either. I have read on here that this could be the motherboard. I know that it has been replaced before. If it is out of waranty does HP help out in anyway? It seems to me like this motherboard should have been recalled a long time ago. Any help will do. I'm sick of using my husbands smaller laptop. HELP!!!

Sounds like a similar problem I had with my HP G60 laptop. When I tried to power it on nothing would happen. I thought it might be the charger but the power indicater light where the charger plugs into the laptop was on indicating it was OK. I tried HP customer support first. They indicated that the laptop was out of warranty and could offer no help without paying for it. They suggested it may be the mother board and for around $300.00 they would repair it. I have had a number of HP products and felt like they could have been just a little more accommodating. I said I would think about the offer then did a little research on the Internet.
The solution to my problem sounded ridiculous but I had nothing else to lose so I tried it and it worked. I have had no problems since.
The solution was to unplug the laptop from the charger if it is plugged in. Remove the battery and hold the power button in for 5 min. I felt like a fool holding the button in for this length of time thinking that someone was having a good laugh at the other end of cyberspace. When I was done I replaced the battery, plugged in the charger, pushed the power button and it powered up normally. Apparently this is a known method for resetting the laptop. If you do not have a monitor issue this may work for you.
I was disappointed that HP could not have mentioned that simple solution.
I hope this helps..
