The computer start up? or does't work?
If the computer doesn't work, check first the power supply.
Second, the memory and the video card.

See first which video card is supported by the motherboard (Agp, 2x, 4x, 8x) or use some PCI video card.

    Be sure to insert in the right way the video card

    Turn on

    If you still are without signal

    Check the memory and the CPU

    If still no signal >> Insert another AGP video card



    If still no signal Bad motherboard slot or bad motherboard (needs to be replaced)

Compaq c300 wont turn on power button just flashes


I imagine that is one of the compaq's that have the Ninvidia graphics card in it. The issue with those laptops is that after so long the graphics card just kinda gives out and it basicially renders the motherboard useless because it is an onboard card. As of now I have not found a solution to the problem other than getting another laptop. Also, that may be one of the models that was up for recall from the factory, the recall is past deadlines now but they did recall a good number of machines because of the fault.

Wireless not working compaq 730us


First thought check for the wireless switch. It is normally located on side of the laptop, some models have this button above the keyboard. Make sure it is turned on. You can normally tell if it is by the color of the light by the switch. Blue = on, Red = off.

If this is not the case answer the following question to help narrow the search:

1. Has the computer connected to this network before?
2. Can the computer connect to anyother network (e.i. at a friends house)
3. Were any updates install?

I hope this helps.

Installed new memory and now wont boot up. Static problem? I remember compaq once told me how to fix it.


A few thing can be wrong.
  • Wrong speed memory - Make sure it is both xxxGHZ, same as your old memory (Take the old memory to the computer store)
  • Memory limit with each slot (Max memory divided by # slots)
  • Overall memory limit (visit the mfg spedific model's page)
  • Incompatable/Bad memory
  • Mix your old and new memory (1 old / 1 new) If the new is incompatable the old (in slot1) should work and an odd amount of ram displays

Compaq cq60 wont start


My first step would be to take the laptop apart again. If it worked after the new fan installation, then can you install the old one (bearing the noise for a bit) and see if it turns on. Then replace the old with the new and if it fails, then perhaps the new fan is grounding your system out.

Good luck
Keep us posted.

My old compaq presario wont read my scan disc


Can you use that port to read any other device?What operating system are you using?Did it work previously?Windows 98 you will have to install drivers.Chances are that old computer has a usb 1.0 so it might not work.However try another device in that port or any usb port on the computer to see if any ports are working.Does your scan disk work on another computer.Have you done a windows update recently.Make sure you try all the above.
Good luck
