Question about HP Compaq Business nx7010 Notebook

Laptop won't start

Hello,

I have either a power or motherboard problem.
When I press the power button nothing happens, either when connected to the AC adapter or only with battery. Sometimes there is a quick flash of the power light, but that's it.
If I keep plugging the power cable off and in all the time while keeping the power button pressed it may start, but it usually takes about 30 times.

Is it the motherboard? The laptop is about 5 years old. How much would the repair cost? Is it worth getting a new one?

Thank you

If you can afford it a new laptop will be your best bet. They have really come down in price. I have a Compaq laptop that had the same problem. If I took the battery out and keep it unplugged for a few days it would boot up but only for about an hour then shut down and not reboot until I did the same thing. This has gone on for about a year. I even disassembled it , put in a new CMOS battery and the same. I was just about to give up on it and one day it just started working and has been for about a month now. I'm sure it is going to go back out but it will give me a chance to do some more testing on it. Hope this helps.

My acer aspire 4740g does not power on. i have removed the battery and directly connected to the power supply but still does not turn on.


Problem description:
The laptop is completely dead. When you plug the AC adapter and press on the power button, nothing happens. The laptop has no signs of life at all. None of the LED lights is working.
Possible cause:
1. AC adapter failure.
2. Power jack failure.
3. Motherboard failure.
Possible troubleshooting steps and repair solution:
1. Test the AC adapter with a multimeter. It's possible that you have a failed AC adapter. If you don't have a multimeter, test your laptop with another known good AC adapter.
Acer Aspire 4740 AC Adapter
2. It's possible that power jack (socket where you plug the AC adapter) is broken. Remove the motherboard and take a closer look at the power jack. In some cases you can fix the jack by resoldering it on the motherboard. In other cases you have to replace the jack with a new one.
Using a multimeter, test if the power goes to the motherboard through the jack.
3. If replacing the AC power adapter and jack on the motherboard doesn't help, most likely you have a bad motherboard. Replace the motherboard.

Problem to switch on the cpu


Disconnect the UPS from your configuration,
and connect the AC power directly to a wall outlet.
Press the ON/OFF button and release it.
If nothing happens, press and hold the ON/OFF button for 10 seconds, until the computer turns itself completely off.
Then, press the ON/OFF button, to restart the computer.

Besides a really serious failure, there are a few things to try...Remove the laptop battery, then hold the power button down for 10 seconds. Plug the AC adapter in, and leave the battery out. If the laptop starts up, you could just have a battery issue.
