hp g7 laptop power button blinks once, doesn't boot

HP G7-1000 series
Microsoft Windows 7 (32-bit)

I have a HP G7 series laptop.

Several months ago the motherboard went out.  I finally got around to ordering a replacement, then had to order a replacement amd chip since the new motherboard had a different socket type.  I put it all back together and now instead of the caps light blinking, the power button will blink once for half a second and then nothing will happen after that.

Hi @elMusso,

 

Welcome to HP Forums!

 

I understand that your laptop still does not work after you replaced the motherboard. I want to help.

 

The document below may help you diagnose the hardware issue of your laptop:

The power button light is the only thing that lights up, for half a second and a slight buzzing sound, no caps no beeping,

Hi @elMusso,

No I did not buy the motherboard from HP, but I will now if I can find the part of the HP site where I can do so.  You don't happen to know the link do you?
