Compaq Presario F700 booting problem

In regard to this post; my husband tell me that it didn't come with any discs at all. Is there another way to get it to boot up properly without going in a loop of shutting off then turning back on? I can't even get to safe mode because nothing appears on the screen.
Thank you in advance

    I have two Presario F700 which have the same issue. No screen, but you can see the lights activity and CD Rom activity. I connect to external Screen, but no screen either. My two F200 act exactly the same way. I suspect Compaq tech may know this known issue for this model. I can't find their supporting number from the department which support this model.

Thank you for the clarification - I'm sorry I misunderstood you before. If the laptop shuts off immediately, before anything has a chance to appear on the screen (no logo, no words, no blinking cursor, nothing), then the problem is being caused by the hardware involved in powering on, not the software involved in "booting up."

I assume you're having this problem regardless of whether the computer is running on battery or AC power (if that's not the case, then you probably don't need me to tell you that the problem is either in the battery or the AC adapter).

Since the problem is not where the power comes from, it's an issue of where the power goes - that's either the motherboard or a cable that carries power to it. One or the other is not working properly. If your computer is still under warranty, then I recommend exercising that warranty. If you don't have a warranty, You may have no choice but to pay for a technician to open it up and replace which ever part is not working.

I wish I could give you better news, but if you can't get the power to stay on, then all the boot-up tricks in the world won't help. And if this were a desktop PC, we could take out memory sticks, PCI cards, and other components in an effort to isolate the problem. But laptops are self-contained, and they're not easy to pop open and play with. Motherboards can sometimes be defective - I've had two defective ones myself, and that's what may very well be the case here. I hope it's just a cable or a small component, but there's no way to be sure.

Sincerely,
H2H

My compaq is power on for 2 second and off , how to fix is thank you


You need to print this out-on someone else's computer. Hope it works for you!
Remove the battery and charger/ac adapter/power cord from your Compaq Presario F700 laptop, press and hold the power button for 20 seconds to discharge any residual current inside the Compaq Presario F700 . This clears your RAM and is like a hardware reset. Replace the battery and charger/ac adapter/power cord and turn your Compaq Presario F700 laptop on.

Boot in "safe mode". As it starts up press F8, the computer ask you if you'd like to start in safe mode. Highlight "safe mode" and press enter. See if your laptop is booting up ok .

If your Compaq Presario F700 boots ok, do the following,

Try System Restore first,
Start Menu->All Programs->Accessories->System Tools->System Restore. Choose the most recent date before you the encountered problem. If it doesn't work, try the next date.

If System Restore does not fix it, as a last resort, you might need to fdisk, reformat your laptop hard disk clean and reinstall OS, that usually fixes all bugs. Before going that route, try following,

Uninstall unnecessary programs and applications.

Scan with a antivirus program

Scan with a spyware/malware program

DEFRAG C:

CHKDSK C:

Clean up and repair registry problems with registry repair software of your choice

If the problem persists, did you check if it could be your Compaq Presario F700 laptop power cord or power source problem? Defective or insufficient power supply might cause error messages that are misleading. Take the battery out and power on your laptop with the charger only. Make sure your Compaq Presario F700 power jack and charger plug tip are securely connected. Did you notice the power jack loose? You can find laptop power jack on ebay. Fixing and soldering the power jack requires professional skill though. The charger green/blue LED should be on. If not, replace the defective charger. Compaq Presario F700 laptop battery charger, especially its power cord/cable, lifespan is limited and does not last forever, consider buying a lifetime warranty charger online from company like www.topmic.com
