Strange problem with hp dv6-3040us Tags: Laptops Hewlett Packard Power Last response: November 19, 2012 1:12 PM in Laptops & Notebooks Share JingoFresh November 17, 2012 3:01:12 PM Hello all, I am having a strange problem with an HP dv6-3040us laptop. I did a BIOS update, which all seem to go smoothly and the PC rebooted and was working fine. I don't think that is related to my problem, but it may be. At some point after, the laptop stopped getting power. I've tried a different outlet and adapter, with no luck. I've tried a hard reset, which had no effect. The only symptom is when pushing the power button, an orange light next to the power jack flashes 3 times. That's it. I can't find any list of codes on the HP site that mentions that behavior. Is there any way to use the orange light blinking 3 times to diagnose what the problem is?
