My second laptop was working like a dream yesterday, now whenever I try to start it, the LED on the power button flashes once and the laptop does nothing else.
its a HP Pavilion G6-2250sa, running Windows 8.
The LED near the Power supply is orange with the battery in and white without it in.
Thanks in advance for any help.

I understand your HP Pavilion G6-2250sa will not boot up into Windows 8. Did you install anything new onto your laptop? You could try performing a hard reset. Here is a document to show you how to do that.
Sometimes changes happen and the easiest thing is to do a system restore. Here is a link to show you how to do that.
Hope this is a help.

Thanks for the advice Mrstenter, unfortunatly the system is still unresponsive.
I dont remember installing any new software, the laptop just operates as a media hub.
I dont think the battery is defective as i have a second battery and it still wont work.

If the battery was the issue it would work on ac with the battery removed.
This is something you could try. Also, try F2 System Diagnostics on the start screen.
Hope this helps.

What happens if you remove the battery and then try to start the computer?
Have you tried a different wall outlet?
Please let me know.
