Laptop does not turn on

Product Name: Hp elitebook 8460
Last time I used my laptop, it was working perfectly and shut it down correctly. But now when I turned on my laptop, it does not perfectly turn on. For the first try i turned it on and it lit for a few seconds then it shut downed. Next try is it does not completely turn on and when turning on, the only thing that happens is i hear a fan whirring and after a few seconds it shut downs again

Re: Laptop does not turn on

Hi akosixd!


I understand that you are having issue with your E8460.


Have you noted a blink code on your Caps Lock or Num Lock button like 1-2-3-pause, 1-2-3-pause?


With the description that you have provided with the fan racing in addition, this almost sounds like a Memory Issue. If so, have you tried to re-seat your Memory Modules in the DIMM slots? If you have multiple Memory modules in the unit, try removing them and place them in one at a time to test the card, then test the DIMM slot as well.


If the code is different than 3 blinks, let me know and I will aim you closer to the error.


I hope this helps.

I am an HP employee.

Always happy to assist.
