Hello, guys my laptop won't start up at all. I get no response when I press the power button , tried plugging in the charger, it charges but then still no response when i press the power button...
There's no light or blinks or anything , its like the laptop's dead or something.
The night before It was working and i had problems with parts of the keyboard , the F2 and F3 as well as the E and 3 keys didn't work
I tried the hard reset thing ( removing every connected device and holding on the power button to drain residual power) but then it still won't work......
Would appreciate I anyone could help me resolve this......

@Enoch_Addo Welcome to HP Community!
Have you attempted to connect the device to an alternate power cord or adapter?
Or check with another wall outlet, excluding any surge protectors to check if it works?
While you respond to that, here's the best way to resolve the issue, using the HP Guided Troubleshooter:
(simply select your description of the issue from the bottom of the screen to gain access to the next set of steps that should resolve your concern).
If the above doesn't help or the steps are insufficient, check the below steps:
Let's start with a hard reset of your notebook computer before you try any other troubleshooting steps.
Reasons for a hard reset
A hard reset has the following effects:
Clears the memory.
Reestablishes the connection between the BIOS and the hardware
The following conditions can be helped by the hard reset:
Windows stop responding.
The display suddenly goes blank.
The computer does not wake from sleep or hibernate modes.
Software applications freeze or fail to respond.

@Enoch_Addo I'm afraid this means, there could be a hardware malfunction and I suggest you talk to HP support and discuss your options, follow the below steps to get started:
1) Click on this link - http://www.hp.com/contacthp/
2) Click on Sign-in or select the product using the below step:
3) Enter the serial of your device.
4) Select the country from the drop-down.
5) Click on "Show Options".
Fill the web-form, to populate a case number and phone number for yourself!
Also, if you are having trouble navigating through the above options, it's most likely because the device is out of warranty, if yes? please send me a private message with the region you are contacting us from,
