I working on an HP G42-415DX that is two years old, (out of warranty), that will not start. When the power button is pushed the LED flashes on the power button and the wireless button (F12) once and that is it. The battery charge indicator LED shows the battery is charged and the power supply is working properly, (I replaced the power adapter).
So far I have replaced the CPU per another forum board recommendation, tested the RAM, and reset the power. Posts on other board suggested the system board was not the cause so I have not gone to the board replacement. (frankly the cost to buy a used computer is less than repairing).
Any ideas at this point will be welcome, At this point I just want to figure out the issue.
