Open Question

Discoloration of the lower right hand corner of the screen

I have a Compaq Presario R3000, I purchased it a number of years ago and haven't had any problems with it.. Although one of my formed roomates left a cell phone or a magnet near it. I have about 1in triangle of yellow discoloration there. Is there a way to remove the discoloration from the screen without replacing the lcd screen.

My compaq presario r3000 wont charge. its plugged in but when i unplug it it immediatly turns off. the battery life constantly says 0%. it wont drop from that or get any higher. in the bottom right hand...


Sounds like the battery, had similar problems.. if you purchase a new battery make sure you get the right kind there are two types, an 8 cell or 12 cell..

The fix for my pressario involved completely stripping it and soldering 3 pins on the power connector on the mainboard.. not difficult but no mean feat.. now works perfectly (with the inclusion of a 12cell battery)

Where is the wireless switch on the compaq presario laptop


It is usually on the right front corner, just below the edge of the cover/screen. Look at the laptop from the front, and follow the edge all the way to the right. At the very corner of the right front of this laptop, you will see a tiny icon in blue and silver. Push it in once, and to its right, there will be a blue and silver icon light up. That is your wireless switch.

Compaq Presario R3000 Sound card follow-up question


The sound board is connected to the mainboard by a connector and contra-connector, both soldered to their boards.. If you want to do it right, you will have to remove several screws from that bottom corner and left side, under the battery too, so that you can lift up the mainboard's corner (gently!) a bit, and put in back in place firmly. It is located just above the top left side of the battery compartment, when looking at the bottom with the front toward you. A more durable option is to take the bugger apart, and put washers max. 1mm thick under the soundboard to get a better snap-in on those connectors.

Compaq Presario R3000 dim screen but not dark


Sounds like the auto-dim in the BIOS is set too low. Fortunately the Compaq R3000 allows you to adjust the brightness right from the keyboard. Hold down the [FN] function key while tapping the [F8] key will brighten the screen, while [FN]-[F7] will dim it. The settings are different for running on AC power and battery, so you must do each individually.

Presario r3000 too slow


I have a R3000 and after many years of usage many things happen and add to your hard drive. It can be a number of things from not enough hard drive space for your cache file to bad installed drivers.
I would suggest a full format and install using the backup disk that Compaq sent with the system. You should have the WinXP code on the bottom of the computer. This way you get a 100% clean system. You will have to reinstall any additional software such as MS Office or your virus scanner.
Hope this helps

Where is wireless connection switch on Compaq Presario R3000?


Well if u have the same exact one as myself.
The wireless button is on the front right near the corner. above it and on the corner is the wireless symbol. If its working it should be lit blue. push it and see if it lights up blue for a few seconds. You should get a wireless connection confirmation on the screen.

hope this helps you
