Hi @seekahill3,


Thank you for visiting the HP Support Forums. It is a great site for information and questions. I have read your post about the computer not working with blinking lights. It’ll be a delight to assist you with this.

The issue looks like a hardware failure and we need to isolate it to being software or hardware related.

Let’s perform some steps first. Try a hard reset first. Steps to do it:

  • Power down the computer and unplug the charger. Then remove the battery only if it is a removable one.
  • Hold down the power button of the unit for 15 seconds to discharge static electrical charges inside the machine.
  • Replace the battery and reconnect the charger. Try to power on the computer.

If the computer fires up then the issue should get resolved. Otherwise, I will send you a  couple of links for further troubleshooting:
