Hi, I have a similar problem with HP EliteBook 8530P switching on the drive light flashes orange and I get nothing on the screen, I have tried all the previous posts and even put an empty hard drive in and reset the memory and hard reset the laptop, but still nothing and the bios reset doesn't work either, I get nothing on the screen.
Any help please?

I'm having same issue, replaced battery that did not do the trick. Plug in, light stays on for 2 seoncds then goes off. With battery out, plugged in - light comes on for a few secocnds white, then goes off. Will not power on. Will not charge. Computer will not turn on, even with battery removed. I'm thinking it's the DC Power adapter, but don't want to replace if that's not the issue. Even tried brand new charging cable, same symptoms, which is what leads me to believe it's the DC Power adapter.
