My laptop won't turn on. I left it alone for a few hours, running, but when I came back it seemed to be dead. I plugged it in for a bit, but on pressing the power button, it will not start up. I don't hear anything working. The power button continuously gives long blinks. The red charging light at the side is continuous until I try to turn it on, at which point it blinks. It blinks quite slowly but faster than the power button. I don't have a removable battery and nothing else is plugged into it.

Most likely, the PC is experiencing a major hardware failure. You MIGHT be able to run hardware diagnostics by pressing the Esc key repeatedly and then, when the HP Startup Menu appears, select Diagnostics (usually F2) and let it run.
If that does not work, then there is nothing more you can do by yourself -- and there is nothing we can do because we HERE have no way of diagnosing or repairing hardware problems.
You will need to have the PC physically examined in a service facility by folks that can run their own diagnostics to determine what is wrong with it.
If your PC is still under the original one-year HP warranty, or if you have purchased an extended warranty from HP and this is still valid, then having HP do this is an inexpensive option for you. In that case, you should contact HP Customer Support to see about having it repaired or replaced under warranty.

NOTE: After you get through, stay on the line until you are finally able to talk to some one -- it can take a while!
If you have trouble finding a phone number, then try: 1 (650) 857-1501.
Tech Support's number is 1 (800) 474-6836.
If your PC is no longer under warranty, then it will cost you up front to have HP examine your PC. If you want to do that, you will have to contact an HP Repair or Service Center to see if they can examine the PC to determine the cause(s) of the problems, if it can be repaired, and an estimate of the repair costs.
