Compaq Presario SR1330NX power problem

We thought that the computer died, so we brought it to The Geek Squad so that they could get the info off of the motherboard and put it on a disc. There were no repairs done on the computer, but when we got it home, we just tried to turn it on, and it actually worked. However, about 3 weeks later, the power went out at the house while the computer was on and now it won't turn on again. It was connected to a safe power strip that still works. Any ideas?

    Thank you for your response, but that did not work. :( There is a light that blinks green in the back of the computer that blinks after it is plugged in however. What does that mean?

If the LED light is blinking when you turn it on the you need a new power supply cord. Take your system back to have a new power suply cord put on it will run you about 60 to 100 dollars for it. But if you are going to add more memory, graphics and sound card, your best bet is to get the 80 dollar one. And if you plan on having it installed it will run you 40 dollars unless you have the gift of gab and act like you know what wrong and get a discount, lol.

Try unplugging it from the outlet then plugging it back in again before turning it on

    it could be that the power supply box need to be replaced. These do break down occasionally unfortunatley. Other to that I would suggest checking all of the cables connected to the motherboard are seated correctly and pushed in gently but firmly. Especially the power led cable near the 'on' switch and the power supply box cable.

Screen won't work on presario v6000

If the machine powers up for a second, then turns off it's probably not the display. It could be any number of issues from a bad processor to a bad power inverter. You'll have to bring it somewhere to have it serviced. I'd strongly recommend finding a small privately owned shop, not something big like Geek Squad.

Compaq Laptop Overheating

sounds like you need another motherboard or prepare to get out the solder iron and correct yourself.

geek squad will not solder back on connectors, what you should do is take it to the local pc repair place and they might solder it back on. call around and ask if they can solder a component back on, it might take a couple calls to find one that will.
