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.

I have horizontal lines in my compaq presario c508us notebook pc. i dont know how to fixed it.


First try connecting an external display to your computer using a cable and the VGA port and an appropriate cable (<$5)
If the display shows no problems it's the screen (most likely).
You can either have the screen replaced at a computer shop - this is likely to be in region of $100 ?) or buy a spare and do it yourself. However before you do that find out exactly what you need and how to do it. Search the internet. Some places are
the HP web page for this model, gives access to the service manual, http://support.hp.com/gb-en/product/Compaq-Presario-C500-Notebook-PC-series/3318986/model/3337791/product-info Also ask on the HP forum.

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.
