The laptop is a model 14-ce0504sa and it just won't open recently. Whenever I push the power button it won't open and just blinks for an interval of 4 seconds. I could faintly hear the fan reeve when the power button is on and would stop when the button would also stop. I tried reading through the forums for a similar problem, and used youtube as well.
I'm not confident on the similar problems since they were a different type of laptop, so I decided to ask directly. I read that the interval of blinking means something so I recorded tje intervals. Also, removing the battery is a sure way to help, but I dont know if this is a static build up problem and the laptop's battery is a built in battery. I am afraid of causing more damage unless i am really sure way of repairing it. Please help, i am noob on these type of things
If the computer does not start, the LED lights do not glow, and the display is black,
you can perform one or more of the following actions to resolve the no power issue:
(Click on the blue letters to get more details about each step)
Examine the adapter and power cord for physical damage
Test the power from the AC wall outlet to the notebook connector
Start the computer using the battery only
Check that the lid switch moves freely
When you have completed the troubleshooting steps, there should be power available to the computer. When you press the power button, the LEDs should glow, and you should hear the sounds of the fan and the hard drive spinning.
If the battery does not accept the charge or the notebook does not turn on without the AC adapter, contact HP to order a replacement battery.
If the LEDs do not glow, and there are no other indicators of power being available to the computer, contact HP for technical assistance in troubleshooting a potential problem with the AC power connection or the system board.
