HP ProBook 4530s won't turn on

Hello, I'm having a problem with my laptop and I wonder if you guys could help me.

My HP Probook 4530s which is 4 years old has suddenly shut down one day while I was using it and won't turn on anymore. I searched for days throughout the internet for solutions and nothing has worked so far. Here is what I did:


- Tried to remove the battery and the AC adapter, pressed the power button for the many time ranges I was instructed, no results whatsoever.

- Tried to replace the RTC battery.

- Tried to flash BIOS through a flash drive pressing Windows + B while powering on, but the power button won't even work.

- Removed everything attached to the motherboard, left the laptop untouched for 3 days, nothing changed.


From my research I think it could be a BIOS problem, but I'm but sure what exactly should I do. Furthermore, there is a strange pattern with that I haven't seen in the HP guides:

1. I plug the AC adapter, the charging light flash's once and then shuts down.

2. I press the power button dozens of times and nothing happens.

3. I press the internet web button and after that the power buttons turns on for about 8 seconds.

4. After the power button shuts down, the charging light keeps flashing orange and white forever. I left it for hours and nothing has changed.


What could be a possible solution for that? Can you guys help me?

Thanks in advance!!
