hp shutdown flashing blue power light



New Member
Hoping someone can help me. I have an hp laptop with windows xp. Its a dv700. It has started randomly shutting down and leaving the blue light on the power button flashing. It wont start up until I remove the battery and plug and then replace them and press the power. I've tried a hard memory reset and a new battery. any ideas? Thanks for the help.

Symptoms typically associated with overheating.
Clean out all vents
If familiar with the process, clean out interior of laptop.

To eliminate battery as source of issue,
Remove battery and use laptop using only the AC power for testing purpose.
