Compaq Presario 2140 laptop won't turn on

My Compaq 2140 won't power on. The light showing it's plugged in is on, but nothing happens when I push the power button. Absolutely nothing.
Yes, I've taken the battery out, jiggled the cord, etc. (I'm not dumb.) I think it's the power pack. Any ideas? How much do you think it'll cost if I take it in for repairs?
Thanks.

I would first remove the battery and leave it unplugged and hold down the power button for 45 seconds. that does a system discharge of power. put the battery back in and try the power again. Write back if this does not resolve your issue.

HP Compaq Presario CQ60 Won't Charge


Three blinks in a row is the LED code for a memory issue.

Turn the laptop over, remove the panel over the RAM, remove the DIMMs (it will likely have 2 in it), place one in at a time and try powering the system on.


One of the two is likely bad although it is possible (although very unlikely) that both are bad. It should boot up when the good DIMM is in place. Once you have identified the bad one, buy a replacement or possible choose to upgrade the total amount of RAM.

Compaq Presario 700 Series Laptop wont turn on


Please first make sure that your adaptor is working.
Try to remove the battery and connect your laptop to the adaptor. Swith on. If nothing chages, then there is good chance that you have a motherboard related problem.
