that's a pretty bad video...are you having to keep pressing the power button to get the lights to cycle or what?

a better description of what's going on would be helpful

Yes I keep having to turn it on for it to just do that. It goes right back off. Basically that's all it does now. I dunno how else to explain it.

well...that could be anything under the sun....could be a bad power supply, bad power cable, bad processor, bad motherboard, bad hard drive (less likely), bad anything that's causing a short, mice in the computer (don't laugh...seen it happen...though not with a laptop), you're not holding your mouth right when you press the button....

IMO there's too many possibilities to accurately troubleshoot on a laptop via a forum....if it were a desktop we could have you remove everything and test each piece of equipment one at a time....not doable with a laptop....i suggest you locate a reputable computer shop or contact HP to see if the device is still under warranty
