It sounds like your power supply unit as some leaky components, normally the bad powersupply unit show these types of symptoms. Try borrowing a powersupply unit from a friend that is similar to yours and replace to check if the powersupply unit is the culprit. If cornfirm PSU, than you neet to get yours fixed.

My Compaq Presario SR1250nx will not turn on. The power chord is attached and power strip is turned on. I've also tested on a stand alone outlet to ensure it wasn't the power chord. A little green light...


Looks like your power supply's failed. The green light on the back of your power supply is just a neon light that just confirms that the power lead is OK, it does not relate to the status of the power supply! Try powering it up with another power supply, or replacing the power supply.

MY COMPUTERS front and back green light is flashing green


you can remove your side cover,and unplug everything from your power supply. then if you plug in your computer and the light still flashes it's your power supply. If not it's something that it is powering. Most likely it's your motherboard. I had this happen to me when there was a power surge/ outage and my computer wasn't even on.

COMPAQ PRESARIO SR1420NX, TRYS TO POWER UP BUT GREEN LIGHT ON FRONT POWER BUTTON JUST FLASHES..


Could be one of two things: either the power supply is going bad or the RAM is either going bad or isn't seated properly inside.

First thing I would try would be to re-seat all the memory chips inside the computer. There could be up to 4 sticks of memory in some computers. If this doesn't work, try pulling the memory out of the computer one stick and a time and booting the PC. If it boots, you've found your bad memory stick. Put all the others back in and replace the faulty one.

If none of this works, you might consider calling HP (maker for compaq) for support on getting the power supply replaced.

Hello,

Try the following:
1. If connected to surge protector, make sure it's on. If it is, then...
2. Try plugging computer directly into wall and turn on...if no then...
3. Unplug and plug the power cord back in and then try to turn on...if nogo then...
4. If there's a switch on the back of your pc that has 120/240. Switch it back and forth back from 240 back to 120, turn on again...if no go then...
5. Unplug everything from the back of your pc except power cord, keyboard, mouse, and monitor. Try again. If it still doesn't turn on.. let me know. By chance, has any power outage occured or any change been done to pc since it was last turned on?

Dead,the cap light does not lite just dead


No fans , No lights, No sound?  Unplug computer and plug something else into outlet to see if the outlet works. If it does the look where the electric cord plugs into the computer , There is a switch . Make sure the switch says 1, not 0. If that doesn't help either have the power supply checked or substitute another one to see if that may be the problem.

Won't power up!


I would say yes, the power supply needs to be replaced. It is a cheap and easy fix.

One thing to check would be the capasitors around the CPU. If any are corroded or bulging then the motherboard will need to be replaced.

I just replaced the battery and power cord on my Compaq Presario 900 US Laptop, I plug in the power cord, the green light comes on, but the battery light just flashes, and I can't turn the computer on. ...


Try laptop without battery first to see if powers on. Could be memory issue of battery as might have been off for a while. Place battery back in if starts up. Then see if charging up and if computer switches on or off.
If fails again, unplug power and battery and open underneath the where the memory is located and try to unplug memory and plug back in. Try power supply then. If works, great! If not, you will have to take into a service center to check inside if motherboard or battery need replacing.

Red light flashing on power button


Sounds like the hard drive has had a failure, you need to get a replacement one, and reinstall it, along with the opperating system, and any other programs that were on the old one.
