Computer won't turn on, motherboard issue? (HP ENVY Sleekbook 6-1010eo)

[ Edited ]
Product Name: 6-1010eo
Operating System: Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I followed the instructions listed on this page for "performing a Hard Reset or Forced Reset". In particular I followed the "Reset a notebook with a sealed or non-removable battery" section as my laptop has a non-removable battery.


However, I did all this to no avail.


When I release the power button it produces a brief white light and the F12 button with a "wireless" icon (see attached image below) produces an equally brief orange light simultaneously.


I don't know what's going on From what I can gather from this thread, it has to do with the motherboard. Please help me! 


I found that this user experienced a similar, if not identical problem with her or his very own HP ENVY Sleekbook 6-1010eo just this month and posted about it, but the thread did not produce an answer.

Hi @badbit,


Welcome to the HP Support Community!


I have read all of your post's that you linked to on the HP Support Forums.  I see you are having issues with HP ENVY 6-1010eo Sleekbook not starting correctly. Here is an explanation of the flashing lights. 


Here is a link to computer won't start for Windows.

Plug the power adapter directly into a different wall outlet. Do not plug it into a power strip, surge protector, or secondary power source as this could cause and issue.

Have you tried reseating Memory and the HDD?

Please let me know how this goes.
