LAPTOP WON'T BOOT UP - ORANGE POWER LIGHT FLASHING

\015 The MC was booting up - i left it for a moment and when I came back the screen was black & the MC seemed 'dead'. Prior to my leaving it a message came up bottom right hand corner which said something like '9 mins power' or something. I thought maybe that was to do with the battery but i rarely use it on battery. It was connected to mains power as usual. When i pressed the ON button nothing happened, it didn't even depress as normal and when i removed my finger the orange power light (? Looks a bit like a lightning bolt, second from right and next to the disc light - which wasn't on) flashed a few times then nothing. My husband thinks it might be the transformer which has a label on- it saying 'replace with HP spare and the numbers 33 (or it might be 38) 1090-001. I can't find the manual... will take it to PC world on Monday but thought I would try here first to see if anyone has any tips to save me the trip!\015

Answers :

This was an odd one to fix. I found apon opening the machine that the heat sink was completly blocked with fluff (Picture Uploaded) so I removed it and cleaned it up.
\015\012I then removed the CPU, cleaned that of thermal paste and cleaned the pins with some universal lubricant (WD40 is fine, just make sure it's not wet when you put it back in!). I then applied new thermal paste (Get this at Maplin in UK) and re-assembled the unit.
\015\012Before powering on I removed the motherboard battery for 30 seconds with the mains power supply removed and the main laptop battery removed. The motherboard battery on this model was located under the WiFi card in the RAM bay and can be accessed by removing just the ram cover.
\015\012I then inserted the battery and the PSU power and switched it on. It booted to the CMOS screen where I updated the correct time and date, saved and rebooted it and it has been fine since.
\015\012I doubt this is a power supply error as the voltage output was correct when tested. Also this supply did not have the data pin (often found in Dell machines to tie you to replacing the PSU with Dell branded ones only) so it wasn't a data error.
\015\012Another odd thing is that when it had the flashing light error it would not turn on with just the battery installed even though the battery tested as fully charged. Apon repair the battery runs it just fine on its own.
\015\012You could just try removing the battery, PSU and motherboard battery (under the WiFi card) for 30 seconds to see if this fixes it, as it may do. I would then go to HP's website and see if there is a BIOS update under the 'Drivers & Downloads' section for your model. This could be a BIOS error that may have been corrected since your model was released or last updated. I am unable to perform this task at the moment as this is a customers machine and has a password. I shall however advise them to do this.
\015\012If you do need to strip it, I should warn that the plastic bezel above the keyboard is a bugger to remove. Make sure you have removed all of the screws under the battery as two of these secure it. Then prise up each end with a thin flat blade screwdriver or Stanley blade and push it up and towards the screen with some effort to unclip it.
\015\012Hope this helps some of you out, please rate and let me know.

I have an Averatec laptop, series 2300. While I was using it, it just shut down (immediate shut down) and wouldn't boot up again. I have removed battery, Let it charge overnight, and twice it has come back on, and then shut off again during use. Any idea what could be wrong. Right now, it will not boot up. The power light appears when it is plugged in, the blue lights appear when I turn it on, I hear a boot up noise for a second or two and then nothing.
