HP Omen 17t-an100 CTO - Does Not Power On

HP Recommended
Omen 17t
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Apologies if I am breaking any rules by cross-posting this, but I see the gaming community appears to be more active and, perhaps, my post is better suited here considering it is a gaming laptop.

 

Hello,

 

My laptop does not boot up following removal of primary NVME drive. I pulled my primary NVME to use in a new laptop and was planning on a fresh install of Windows onto the secondary now-turned primary HDD. However, the laptop does boot up at all- no BIOS, no boot from USB, nothing.

 

I tried powering it on with and without the battery connected, but to no avail. I tried removing any residual charge. The power button does blink a pattern; 5-seconds on (red) then 3-sceonds (off/no light) and repeats until I power it down by pressing and holding the power button for 15-seconds.

 

I re-installed windows back onto the NVME and installed it back into the laptop thinking that might work... it did not. At this point, I am thinking maybe a CMOS battery replacement- if this has one because I cannot see it anywhere on the motherboard from taking the back panel off. Or if the CMOS is tied into the laptop's battery?

 

Any ideas?

 

Edit: I also wanted to note that the battery was starting to have problems. The laptop barely went over an hour off battery power (even at 100% new it barely stretched to two hours) and it would shutoff despite the battery indicating a charge (i.e. ranging from 10-30%). However, the battery would indicate 0% after powering the laptop back on via AC brick.

Greetings,

 

I thought it would be a good idea to post a solution in case anyone else has a similar problem.

 

I ran through the typical troubleshooting flow charts; BIOS, power discharge, RAM adjustments, check AC power, etc. 

 

I finally got it to power up when I removed the WiFi card and left everything else intact. I re-installed the WiFi card and, sure enough, it would not power on. I eventually replaced it with a new Killer WiFi 6 card and has been running fine.

 

I never thought that a faulty WiFi card would prevent my laptop from powering up, but glad it did not become an expensive paperweight. Obviously, YMMV.

Hello,

 

There is no chat or phone support option. Only ask community or find a repair center is listed. As a matter of fact, the link you provided brings me to a "page not found." 

 

Rather unfortunate as the laptop is only two years old and was used as intended to have it fail prematurely.
