I had always advised people not to update from device manager (windows update rather). It's better to download the file as ISO and install offline. Naija network no stable.

Your laptop may not show charging cos it's full. most Dell laptops turn charging light off once full.

For probable solution, remove battery and disconnect charger, press power button for 1 min then connect only charger and try turning it on. if that doesn't work then visit a technician.

a software can not cause this, this seems to be an hardware problem, the pc might already have an underlying hardware issues prior to the version upgrade. but you have to perform a hard reset first and hope its not the battery ?
The battery is in good condition..how will I perform the hard reset ?

remove the charger and battery from the pc, and press the power button for 60 secs to drain every residual charges left from the mainboard, after that, reconnect the charger and battery and power on the pc

Windows crashing won't stop the laptop from turning on, Can only stop it from booting. If you can't get it to turn on at all then visit a repairer for physical troubleshooting.

I updated mine too yesterday..I encountered the same problem..I can't power on my laptop..it us not even charging at all... have u get a solution?

I think the problem occured because the update wasn't completed before the laptop shut down.

I wanted to be sure my charger wasn't the problem so two days ago I went to a vendor to buy charger, and it was confirmed that my charger is not the problem. Was planning to take the laptop to Ikeja by Friday for repair, but surprisingly, the thing started working well yesterday till today.

What I'll advise you to do is plug the laptop to electricity anytime there is light and leave it, it will charge for few seconds then go off, and probably charge again for few seconds, if you feel it has charged a little...power on your laptop and the update will continue running in the background. Do this as often as you can, then you will get your laptop back. That's exactly what I did...

Re-install the operating system.
I finally took the system to a technician (friend) on Wednesday for reloading of the os(windows 10)but the problem now is it trip off after about 2_4 mins after powered on.. He tried different pattern by
*removing the battery and plug the charger directly.. Same issue
*adding paste to the processor as a cooling agent(thou fan is working fine).. Same issue
*adding a paper tape to prevent hart to the pan between the board and the base thinking it harts and trip off after touching the board.. Same issue

I could notice he was confused and asked me to come today..

I needed to run here for advice from the tech gurus, so I could give him an idea cuz I couldn't afford to loose this system for a long period of time.. Thanks

Good morning tech gurus.
My HP Elite book laptop tripped off on its own last night and has refused to power on.

Any time I press the power button, the power light, network connection light, the light on the "scroll key" and the volume mute or unmute light all blink for a second together and goes off again. I will have to wait for like another 6 seconds, press the power again and the same lights will come on without the laptop powering.

I have done a hard reset where I removed the battery and AC adapter, held the power button for 60secs, connected the AC adapter and tried powering but getting same result.

What could be wrong, please?

) those blinking lights are signs or messages codes used to identify the actual problem wrong with your laptop system, each number of blinks and sequences has its own meaning, study these, and visit Hp website to identify the problem blink codes meaning, it would let you have an info, about what's wrong, maybe processor failure, motherboard failure, fan e.t.c before taking it to the technicians for fixing

What's the model of elitebook?

Especially those 8460p,8570p, sometimes it is cause by over charging, just take out the battery and leave it for like 1hr for the laptop to discharge.

Again there might be a short circuit on the board so I'll advise you see a laptop technician if the above procedure doesn't work.
