Charging Light Blinking Laptop wont Power on

Pavilion DV6 6115tx
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hello Guys,

I have HP dv6 pavilion series with Windows 10 (64 bit) for 4 years now. I dont have the Battery so I usually work with directly connecting the Power cable.

It worked fine till now. Today it abruptly Shut down and since then its not booting. The Charging light keeps on Blinking.

I have tried the 40/30 sec trick (holding thepower on button for 30-40 secs for the capacitors to discharge) twice, but in vain. I also cleaned up my cooling fan and checked for all the wiring, its all intact. After re-essembling the laptop, the same problem persists. 

And about the Bios update, I do think I have the latest bios updated, as my laptop is connected with internet, and I usually keep it all Updated. And if someone recommends me to Update the BIOS, well I cannot power on my laptop, so is there any alternative for updating the BIOS?


Earlier it did Abruptly Shutdown twice or thrice over last few days, but used to Power up again. But today it wont work.

Please Help Me guys.

Hi @TheWarIQ, 


Before I provide troubleshooting documentation, I would like to take a minute to welcome you to the HP Support Community!  Smiley HappyI will do my absolute best to help you resolve the issue you are having getting your HP Pavilion dv6-6115tx Entertainment Notebook PC to turn on. 


Note: please make sure that the AC adapter cable is not plugged into a power strip, surge protector, or secondary power source. It should be directly into a wall outlet. Please note remove any and all USB devices. Disconnect all non-essential devices, as these could cause some issues.


Considering you do not have a battery in your Notebook, it could be that there is a bad connection between the adapter and the system board or the AC adapter has failed. Do you have a different AC power adapter you could use to verify that the adapter is the problem?


Are there any blinking LED lights?

Have you done a BIOS reset instead?


Do you hear the fan spinning when you press the power button on the Notebook? If not, please follow the steps in The computer does not receive power (no noise or lights) section. 


I would like to provide you with a document called Computer Does Not Start. In this document, you will find the troubleshooting steps mentioned in the questions above.
