Could be one of a few things. I'm assuming this is a presario laptop, not a desktop.

System needs to be restarted - Remove the battery and let the laptop sit a while (30 minutes). Reinstall battery and plug in power supply and see if it works. If not,

Remove the Battery and see if it is charged up (there are a set of green lights on most compaq laptop batteries with a spot to push to confirm the battery is charged). If it isn't charged, you very likely have a bad DC Jack connector on the laptop motherboard. If you apply pressure to the cord which plugs into your laptop (up and down, side to side) at the spot where the cord is connected (back of the laptop), see if the power light, on the front of the laptop, comes on for second. If it does, you can fix this by buying the DC Jack for your laptop model on ebay ($10) and removing the old connector and installing, soldering in, the new connector. This will require you to take your laptop apart. (note: Search the internet for the service manual for your laptop and this will give step by step directions on how to do this.)

Also, I think they do this at Best Buy (Nerd Herd) if you aren't comfortable doing ($75)

If it's not the DC Jack, it's a problem with the motherboard / CPU / Power Inverter or something else, most likely not worth your time to fix. You could sell the laptop for parts on ebay to recoup as much of your cost as possible, then buy another.

If you are slightly mechanical and are looking for a project and don't need the laptop immediately, you could buy the individual parts and replace piecemeal, based on directions from the service manual. FYI - I've picked up a few laptops for next to nothing and repaired this way {Compaq Evo n620c (CPU / DC Jack), IBM T22 (LCD Screen), Compaq M700 (DC Jack)}.

Power not turn on


Try using different outlets.

If you have another Compaq Presario CQ60-220US swap the power adapters and see what happens.

Make sure that the battery is firmly seated.
-You may also want to try to turn it on with out the battery with only the power adapter connected.
-If it works without the battery I suggest to contact the manufacture for a replacement or order a new battery.

My laptop pluged in but not charging


There could be many problems with your laptopFirst, check if your laptop was plugged into a surge protector (ex. Power Strip). If it wasn't, a surge could destroy the charger, power supply, or even motherboard.
Second, try a different charger. If it was the charger that broke, then try a different one. I have had this happen to many off my computers over the years.
If it is fried, take it to Staples, or a local computer shop. I would always recommend plugging computers into surge protectors. Good luck!

Compaq presario cq61 won't turn on


hi
i wonder if the mainboard has suffered a power failure due to power shortage through electrical system that it was connected to . if the lights do not appear on the media strip below the video panel and above the keyboard, that would indicate a power failure has resulted from the power supply burn out. That being said the mainboard has suffered a electrical sudden power down. Have you tried the AC adapter to ensure it works ? I would need the entire model number and S/N of the notebook to get some feedback from HP

My screen is completely black when i turn on my power button, the light comes on and the fan runs but thats it.


This sounds like a motherboard problem, remove main battery and power supply, now press power and hold for 40 seconds, release and install power supply and battery, any change, if not! remove hard drive to see if screen logo will come up, if no! swap out the ram one at a time. If none of this works, it points to motherboard issues.

Power cord will not light up where it is inserted into the laptop unless you hold it steady. It will not charge unless it is held in a certain position. Is the male part on the cord bad or is it the female...


You'll need to get another power cord that is identical in power and polarity and plug. One can buy a generic power supply from Walmart that will power most laptops or Radio Shack (Walmart is probably cheaper).

Once the new power supply is obtained, try it, and if the same thing happens, then the problem is in the female plug connection to the motherboard of the Compaq Presario C762NR Notebook.

The Notebook will have to be disassembled and the female plug connection to the motherboard will have to be replaced.

If the male plug end shows any fraying or excessive bending signs, then I would definitely replace the cord.

It is difficult to determine which is bad, the male or female part without changing the easiest part... the power supply.

Also, you could go to your local Compaq dealer and ask to plug in one of their power supplies to your computer and tell them the problem that you are having, determining which is bad, the male or female part of your power supply.

Good luck on this repair.

Try booting into the BIOS Screen and resetting to factory defaults. If that fails suggest swapping the hard drive out and re-install the Operating System - Save your old data and migrate the data off the old drive. You can buy an external drive adapter to connect the harddrive to a USB port to migrate you data.
Good Luck!
