DV8309 power up problem: blue lights on for few seconds then off

\015 Problem with Laptop: HP Pavilion DV8309, AMD Turion 64 processor, 17'' monitor, Windows XP Professional, Ver 5.1, service pack 2 build 2600, bios updated to F.54, ATI xpress 200 video card 128 Memory. I have reinstalled the driver for it.\015\012\015\012Computer does not power on properly: when power button is pushed,the blue light comes on, the screen shows HP logo both for may be 2-3 seconds and then power shuts off. This happens with battery only (now that the battery cannot be charged, systgem does not do anything with battery only), battery plus mains, mains only without battery. Battery is brand new.\015\012\015\012The other problem is that battery does not charge. If i leave the main power plugged in, computer off, battery in computer: the battery blue light starts blinking within a few minutes after plugging, indicating problem with charging.\015\012\015\012Now, I accidentally discovered something: With battery out, main power plugged in, i connected the external monitor to this laptop,)if i push the little pin switch behind the power button (which turns the laptop's display panel off), I turn the computer power on,, computer works fine. As soon as I let the pin switch go, computer turns off. So I put some weight on the pin switch to keep it pressed in and the computer continues to work indefinitely untill i turn it off.\015\012\015\012The above thing does not work if I insert battery in, perhaps because the battery is totally dead. Occasionally the charging has worked.\015\012Even though the panel is off, no image on it, i think the computer still sees it because if i have it set as one of the two monitors, things are present on it even though i cannot see them( with the pin switch off) \015\012An extension of the above phenomenon: In the ''display setup'' i changed the primary monitor to be the external monitor and the panel turned off. Turned on the computer, it works fine.\015\012\015\012This is the whole story. So, please, what is your diagnosis? I don't know anything about computers. I think it has something to do with the laptop display panel and not the mother board.\015\012\015\012Thanks for the help.\015

Answers :

The inverter inside the lcd panel is most likely your problem. Try removing the whole lcd screen from the laptop if you are capable and run it with the external screen to confirm. leave the lcd switch off (this lcd switch above the power button turns the lcd inverter on and off)

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.

I seem to be finding this exact same problem on several different topics. I also have an Averatec 2300 ultra-portable laptop.It seems the problem lies in the mother board not getting enough power at power up. This can be seen by the fla ... PC Desktops
