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.

For this kind of issue, please follow up the following steps to check:

1.confirm your Lenovo IdeaPad S10 ac adapter and battery connect the laptop normally.Maybe the bad connect lead to this problem. If there are no lights when you turn on laptop, one of possible reason is that your adapter is malfunction.

2.the second possible cause is laptop dc jack failure. If the dc jack is broken or loose, you are required to replace it or repair it.

3.Another possible reason is that there is something wrong with laptop motherboard. For this situation, it includes two kinds of possibility,a failure in an electronic circuit and BGA malfunction.

Vostro 1400 won't turn on


I doubt there is battery problem, have you tried switching on laptop without battery and connecting through the laptop charger? most probable your battery is not taking the charge. so suggest you to disconnect the battery and try using laptop with charger then you'll find the problem.

Vostro 1500, won't start, I press the power button, the drive light comes on and goes off and nothing else happens. Screen never comes on, external monitor same results.


Hello.

The most common reasons for power issues are the battery, power jack and power adapter/cord.
Power off and remove the battery. If the laptop powers on with just the adapter connected, your battery is faulty.

If you move/wiggle the power adapter at the point where it connects to the laptop, and the power goes off and on, the power jack is the problem.

The power jack is inside the laptop and either needs soldering or replacement. If a power jack problem, it should be addressed by someone knowledgeable.

If no change, the power adapter is probably faulty and needs replacement.

Hope this helps.

Hi,

Welcome to FixYa!

It seems that you are having problem with the LCD on the laptop. This may cause by an electrical charge in the motherboard itself,Im not really sure how it affects the display of the computer.There's also a possibility that the problem is with the LCD cable or the LCD itself. Please follow this method since it usually fix such problem like that,

1.Removed the battery then unplugged the AC adapter

2.Press and hold the power button or the ON/OFF button for at least 30 seconds

3.Connect the power supply back to your computer then turn it back on.

4. Check if you will see any difference.

5. If nothing happens, try to press and hold Fn and F2 on the keyboard.

If nothing happens, there is a possibility that the problem is with the LCD or monitor itself, maybe it will need a replacement...

I hope this information will be helpful. Thank you for using FixYa...

It shows no power on your laptop but it shows you the dvd player led comes on then off. I would suggest try the following:
1. Remove laptop battery, optical drive, hard drive and ram. Remove external peripherals as well. 2. Make sure AC Adapter is not yet connected to the laptop. Press and hold on the laptop's power button for 10 seconds to drain the power flea. 3. Connect the AC Adapter to a known good power outlet, check AC Adapter power LED if it is on. Try to sense if AC Adapter is not making a bit of noise when it is plugin to the wall power outlet. 4. Connect now the AC Adapter to the laptop. Check if AC Adapter LED stays on when it is connected to the laptop. If the LED stays on means the AC Adapter is fine. If the AC Adapter LED turned off check the AC Adapter pin that goes to the laptop AC socket if it is loose. 5. If AC Adapter stays on after connecting to the laptop try to power on laptop. If no power LED comes on then this is motherboard problem. 6. Before replacing the motherboard there is one checking needs to do. If you can open your laptop bottom part then good, do this when laptop is not connected to any power source. Try to reseat the laptop CMOS battery then try to power on laptop after, if still fails then replace motherboard. I hope this helps.
