EliteBook 6930p - flashing lights on power up

When I attempt to power this machine on, nothing happens except the LED under the lightning bolt on the front of the machine flashing eight times. This happens whether I'm using the battery, the power adapter, or both.

I'd love to know what these flashes mean. Can't find this info anywhere on HP's site. Thanks.

Correction: no flashes (or anything else) when I try to power the laptop up without a battery in it.

That light normally flashes when trying to boot on battery with the battery completely discharged. With AC attached it should start charging the battery and boot normally. It seems that perhaps you have a faulty battery. Page 12 of the Service and Maintenance Guide has an explanation of all the lights. http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/DocumentIndex.jsp?contentType=SupportManual〈=en&cc=us&docIndexId=64179&taskId=101&prodTypeId=321957&prodSeriesId=3688868#3

A new power supply did the trick.

Mine was working fine undocked, and did the power flight qr lashing trick when I docked it.  In my case the problem was the laptop wasn't fully seated in the dock,  and pressing it down to latch both sides into the dock connector solved the problem.
