Question about Compaq Presario Notebook

Compaq Presario C500 will not power up

My laptop will not power up. I can not find my owner's manual but I know that I have not even had the computer for a year. The only symbol that will come on is the lighting bolt, whatever that means. Can you please tell me what the problem could be? I thought of buying a new power adapter to charge the battery but I have tried it plugged up as well, nothing works and I do not want to spend the money for nothing.

You should have a 1yr manufacturing warranty, or possible a store warranty depending on where you bought it. Take it to the store or send it to compaq. It sounds like a tech issue that you would have to test parts to find out.

Go to the above link, here you will find assistance, to aid you in repairing your unit. The hinges are available, as spare parts, and you should be able to replace them, or perhaps even repair them.i have used super glue,and sometimes, Epoxy compounds, to repair these type of things.

Fast Blinking Power Button


Check your RAM. I had the same problem with my C500. I ended up having a bad stick of RAM. The only other cause I know of is the hard drive. Although this is rare if you had no problems with your operating system before.

Broken keyboard keys on Compaq Presario C500 laptop


yes, all laptop keyboards can be replaced. do you have the manual for the laptop? it shows you have to remove it and take it apart. or you can download the manual from their website. you can buy a used keyboard from ebay. I don't think they are thay expensive.

Good luck
