Try removing the battery and power cord, and pressing the power button to release excess static. Then try powering it on with ONLY the power cord--no battery. It's possible that the battery has drained past the point of usability (and will no longer hold a charge), but the computer is still trying to use it.

Most Pcs have whats called a "beep code" when it will not start properly. I believe thats what you are looking at, as it is not booting.

This article I found on HP's site should help :)

I tried the hard reset discribed on the page but still no luck. None of the leds are lighting up except for the one indicating that the ac adaptor is plugged in even when I press the power button
