Compaq Presario R4000 Notebook won't boot

Every time I leave my laptop switched off for a longer time it has a problem to boot up. The first time this occurred was in December last year, after 4 weeks of being switched off it refused to boot up. When I finally managed, it was stuck in safe mode for a few days, and would only work normally after I reformatted the disk.

The same thing happened a few more times after leaving it off during the weekend, only on those occasions I managed to boot it after pressing the power on button repeatedly.

Finally, last week I had to reformat the disk again, after 2 weeks of inactivity.

Can anybody give me any ideas what could be the problem?

Seem to be a problem with your power switch doing malfunction or bad motherboard connector or your computer has been setting at hibernate mode. Check those settings going to >> Start >> Control Panel >> Power Options..........Set your droplist to "never: and also UNCHECK the hibernate mode.

Another tip, take out the battery, and see what happen (only connected with AC)

I have a compaq presario r4000 will not boot up correctly


When you start it up, go to the BIOS option and select "peripheral" settings. I don't know which column its under but you want to turn the network adapter off. If that makes your Operating System come up working (And you may have to come up in SAFE mode the first time), then you can always go back and reset the BIOS to recognize the network adapter, or install a different one.

KEYBOARD DRIVER FOR COMPAQ R4000


There is no driver from Compaq because it just uses a standard driver from the operating system.

Try removing the keyboard from the device manager.

Then restarting the computer.

No sound


Do you have the original CD which came with this Laptop?
Because you need to load the Audio divers.
If you don't have the CD then you need to go to the HP website and download the sound card drivers.
