Got a 18 month old HP Pavilion G6 that won't power up / on.
Did the lamp test - making sure the outlet I was plugging into was working (it is) and also checked the power cord itself on another HP laptop (it worked also).
Popped the battery out, tried to start it - no go.
Put that battery back in and tried to start it - no go.
Another item of note, when the tested/working power cord in plugged in, there are none of the standard blinking "yes I'm charging" lights anywhere on the unit.
This laptop has had very little use, is very clean and hasn't been dropped or abused...so I'm guessing the PSU, but thought it best to at least get some feedback from the Forums.
Ideas / thoughts / links / feedback / coffee?
I'll be in and out all day, thanks in advance for any help.
Photobucket removed my cool flag - idiots!
Every calculation based on experience elsewhere fails in New Mexico.
