Question about Computers & Internet
I have a Compaq Presario C502US laptop that will not boot. The minute I plug it into the a/c adapter the red charge led rapidly flashes (looks like some sort of blink pattern). When I hit the power switch the power light on the switch blinks on and off rapidly and then one of the volume led's flicker.
I checked the CMOS battery and it's fine and the a/c adapter is putting out the right voltage.
Turn it off, pull the battery from the bottom, and try it again... chances are, the power adapter is not rated properly for the notebook, or the battery is dead and won't hold a charge anymore, in which case, recycle the battery.
