Question about PC Desktops

1 Answer

On off button

My on/off button on my Compaq x1000 Presario lap top computer is stuck/gammed and i can not turn my computer on. What can I do? I had to shut down the pc by pressing the power button for 10 seconds. Now I can't re-start it as it seems that there is no resistance on the power button when I am pressing it?

Remove the battery and try to start it using AC power, if the button is stuck or jammed try to free it using a small flat headed screwdriver, take care to be gentle not to damage the button, if the machine is still under warranty, sent it for repair

Compaq Presario stuck in sleep mode


Connect the monitor to some other computer, e.g., a notebook, and see if it does the same thing. If it does, then the monitor is the problem.
If it does not, then your computer is not putting-out any "video" signal, and so the monitor goes to "sleep".

If you have MORE than one VGA-output port on your computer, connect your monitor to the "other" VGA port.

Or, press-and-hold the ON/OFF button on your computer, to force it to completely shutdown.

Take the hard drive out and get someone knowledgeable to put it in their system as a slave drive. Then plug your flash drive into their system and copy all the files to it. I'd say this is the fastest and easiest solution to the problem. You could always network it to another computer and transfer the files also.

On my desk-top presario


HP/Compaq has had alot of power supply issues with this series of computers. Do you have another power supply you can try in this system? If the light is flashing rapidly, it is usually a power supply. Fairly cheap and easy to replace.

Power on/off switch on my compaq presario x1000 laptop works intermittently. It does not turn on first time.


It could be the power button on the motherboard or the button on the bezel along the top of the of the keyboard. Here is a link to the service manual, it is in 5 parts, opposite the word "mutipart" you will see numbers 0-4, click on each number to download the parts of the manual. After you download all the parts decompress them into one manual.

You may have to copy and paste the link into your browser.
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe
