Question about Compaq Presario R3000 Notebook

1 Answer

My Compaq Presario R300 won't start up anymore.

Hi. I had the laptop for four years and now it won't start up anymore, even with or without battery. Hard drive is still good but I tried everything and nothing helped. Nothing is working nor turning, it's something to do with the hardware. Can someone help me.

    It's not the battery, I think it has something to to with the hardware within the laptop. Any suggestions other than battery?

Laptop shuts down when using battery

If thelaptop battery is more than 3 - 4 years old then the battery could be worn out.Rechargeable batteries have a finite number of charge and discharge cycles andwill lose their charge capacity over time, i.e. won't charge to 100% andgradually the charge reduces until the battery won't charge up at all. OR Thebattery shows a 100% charge but when the adapter is disconnected the batterydrops off to zero capacity in a very short time. If the battery drops to anunacceptable charge level then the battery needs to be replaced.

Compaq presario v5000 won't start or post

It's the motherboard. Check to see if yours is still under warranty even if you've had it for over a year.

HP / Compaq has recently extended their warranty period for certain models.

Warranty Check

Let me know if you have any other questions.

Computer will not turn on

This could indicate a bad battery, or bad memory chip. Try starting without the battery. If this doesn't work, then try takeing one or the other memory chips out. If the problem persists, then it may lie within the power management system on the motherboard.
