    exact same thing.



    It seems to be tied in with either the power or start up mechanism.

    I have the same problem as everyone else, shuts off....there is a recall on alot of F500 series laptops. Simply go to www.hp.com and type in the model number for your laptop and recall. There is a wireless issue and a powering up issue. I just sent mine in to HP, fixed it for free and paid for fedex shipping! You will have to call them first and I will say it was a little frustrating the person I spoke to didn't speak very good english. Call them when you have the time to wait on hold. Good Luck!

Check out this recall and see if it applies to your model laptop. From what I here, the motherboard may need to be replaced, and may be under a specila warranty.

Hi.

Try this >>>>


Power down your Compaq Presario F500 notebook computer. Remove the unit's internal battery from its housing compartment.
Use a screwdriver to unscrew and remove all of the screws from the bottom panel of your Compaq Presario F500. Use your hands to lift off the bottom panel, revealing the inside of the notebook computer.
Look for the CMOS/BIOS chip: It will be located in the center of your computer's motherboard, which is itself located in the center of the case.
Remove the small battery from its housing compartment on the CMOS/BIOS chip. Then, press and hold the "Power" button on the laptop's case for a few seconds. This will completely discharge all electricity from the device.
Replace the CMOS/BIOS' battery. Place the bottom panel of the notebook computer back on and screw it back into place. Place the Compaq Presario F500's battery back into its housing compartment and press the "Power" button to turn it on. Your CMOS/BIOS will now be completely reset.
Good luck and please let me know how you get on!!!!



Regards.

I have a Compaq Presario F500 When I press the power button all the lights light up for a few seconds then it shuts back off


remove the battery then try to plug the charger directly on your laptop without a battery.. to test if the battery is working properly. if not.. maybe your main board have a problem. just like athe compaq presario of my friend. also mainboard problem.

Sounds like the power converter. The power input and the battery are single voltage. The computer requires multiple voltages which are generated by a power converter. If you have installed this motherboard, ensure the connections to the power converter are correct.
