    does not turn on, or only on once every dozens of tries. Probably because of overheated (not repairable) motherboard. Fairly common in this model.

    I think I have same problem. It turned on about half the time. Now it doesn't turn on at all. When I press the power button the light turns and the hard drive makes a small noise as if it has power. The floppy drive is also active but doesn't read anything.

Yes, you need a new motherboard. hp lappy's have been having serious issues with these problems. my suggestions is look for a service that does board work in your area to reflow or repair the motherboard. ebay has tons of people who offer this service.

Good Luck!

Laptop wont boot up, black screen, has power


You didn't post the Make, Model of Laptop or the OS you are using. I'll use a Win 7 solution. Boot the Laptop, open the Control Panel, select Power Options, set to High Performance, select Change Plan Settings, set SLEEP to Never, select Change Advanced Power settings, go through the settings , set SLEEP and Hibernate to Never, Power buttons and Lid to shut down. Always shut down and unplug your laptop when not in use to prevent damage from power surges and possible Fire hazard IF the battery malfunctions. A reboot every day will reset the computer.

Hello Kristi,

I'm not sure if this will work, but worth a try. It appears that your power up settings have got messed up somehow.

Put it all back together, batteries and charger. It will try to boot after a fashion. Just give it a couple of minutes to try and do what it should. If it still hasn't come on properly, press and keep pressed the on/off button until the laptop turns off (about 5 seconds). Leave it a couple of minutes then try and turn it on again normally.

After this, I'd need to be able to look at what's happening to help any more.

Remove the battery and try to start it up with the AC power. If it's not working, after you try to boot up and the lights are on, press the power button for several seconds (10-15) and it should go off. Press the power button again and it should start.

Compaq presario 2500 notebook won't boot


This sounds like a weird solution, but it worked for me. I recently bought a used Presario 2500, it worked when the guy showed it to me, when I got home it didn't work two days later. I tried several tips from the web, finally I started pushing several buttons randomly. I pushed the Email (Envelope) button, and the computer powered on suddenly. Now, the Envelope button is the only button that will power the computer on. When the computer is on, that button will also bring up Outlook, but when the computer is off, that button turns it on. Let me know if this fixes it for you.
