HP Envy suddenly shut down, unable to power it on

Asked By 35 points N/A Posted on -

Hello there,

I need your help on the a strange issue with my HP Envy Notebook. It was on, I attached adapter to it for battery charging. For some reasons, it shut down automatically. I tried to power it on but failed. I asked my friend to help. He suggested me to try powering it on after removing battery; unfortunately, it did not work.

I do not understand what could be the problem. Can anyone explain the reason and resolution it?

Many thanks in advance.

Hi Bob T Smith,

I am sorry to hear that you are facing these inconveniences. The problem you are experiencing may be caused by caused by a faulty charger, a failed motherboard or a faulty battery.

Here are some steps to take in order to troubleshoot and fix your problem:

Solution One: Power Cycle the laptop

2. Press and hold the 'Power' button for about 3 minutes.

3. After 3 minutes, release the 'Power' button and connect the charger to the laptop.

4. Once you have plugged in the charger, 'Power On' the laptop by pressing the 'Power' button.

5. If the laptop comes on, then it means there is a problem with your Battery, It may need to be replaced.

Note: If this did NOT solve your problem, proceed to solution two.

Solution Two: Testing the charger.

1. Here you would need to borrow an identical from someone with a laptop similar to yours. You may also purchase a replacement charger.

2. Connect the replacement charger to your laptop and try powering it on. If it powers on, it means that your original charger is faulty and needs replacement.

3. If the replacement charger doesn't work while the battery is in the laptop, then remove the battery and try again.

If your problem is not resolved by now, your laptop may have some serious technical problems.

Solution Three: Return Laptop to Dealer/Manufacturer

That problem can be due to a broken battery or the power supply of your laptop just got busted. First, flip your laptop over and remove the battery from the battery compartment. Next, with the battery removed, plug your charger to the power outlet and connect the charger to your laptop and then turn it on. If everything’s working fine, your laptop should start normally.

But if something’s wrong internally, the machine should not start. If this method failed and your machine didn’t turn on, it could be a problem with the power supply. In this case, bring your laptop to a computer service center for proper servicing. To verify if the problem is really with the power supply, use a different charger that is compatible with your laptop.

If this didn’t work then it really needs proper servicing.
