Hi guys,
A friend of mine said the people in this forum might be able to help me out. I bought an HP Dv6140 US laptop a month ago and the other day is stopped booting up.

I hit the power button and the power button LED just flashes on and off, nothing else happens. When I plug in the AC adaptor the charge LED lights up for like 1 minute and then goes off. MY AC Adaptor works fine with other computers so I know it is not the adaptor.

Does anyone have any ideas? please help, I am not in a good position to send it back to the company.

well first of all is that the correct adaptor for that laptop? you said it works on other machines, you can't just use any laptop adaptor on any laptop, they each have their own specific power requirements. Second have you tried the computer without the battery? If it works without the battery I'd say your battery may be defective/dead. if you got it new I'd check with hp on warranty.... if not then you could try a place that specializes in batteries... we have one here called Batteries Plus. they might be able to either test or possibly reguvinate the battery.

They also might be able to help you get a new power adaptor if that isn't the correct one.
