Question about Compaq Presario Notebook

1 Answer

I have a cq60-dx615 laptop. After 1 yr it started freezing, and then wouldn't start at all. When I turn on the computer the battery and power adapter lights come on, but the disk drive light is dim and I don't hear it running. I have plugged in an external monitor and get nothing on the monitor. I have installed a new inverter board, checked the memory card and slots and checked the hard drive. I put the hard drive into another laptop and it started up with a message

If the fan is dead and the old HDD is pure silent the power pack is dead. (battery out)
no OS stated, then post questions, why> , why make it impossible to help>/ let me guess the virus magnet XP? or worse older?
some are vista and w7 fitted... must I GUESS THIS?

dead laptop 101, (generic)

runs ok battery out, BINGO !
BIOS works? that is first not windows EVER, BIOS works.
does it?
you do know BIOS works with CD drive and HDD drive out right>?
if not the power pack is dead, or the mobo regs are dead.
you can pull ram sticks and run them 1 by 1 to see if one is toasted.
there are many modules on all LT MOBO, that can short out.
a tech pulls them. to learn that.. fact. bingo?

what a tech does is strip it down to near nothing here
to get BIOS alive again. if its goes live the fan spins, see?
if BIOS is dead, all PCs made are dead. hopeless.
BIOS does the boot and hand off to HDD< see?
focus like a laser on BIOS....! and win.

you typed the model wrong, so is now 2 times harder to help you.

HP has support but not software now, (sadly)

https://support.hp.com/us-en/product/compaq-presario-cq60-600-notebook-pc-series/4074237/model/4121161/manuals


its just a filler page, the service guide is NOW MISSING
so i cant spoon feed you the BIOS hot key
but the black screen page here tell it.

F1, F2, F10 and ESC.
If you boot a working PC (no hdd, no cd drive needed)
you will get a text message. from BIOS
telling the above, secret.

every way on earth to get a black screen or silent pc or dead bios is there. (seems so)

SOURCE: Compaq Presario R3000 not booting up

set the bios/cmos to boot first of your CD drive. get your support discs and restore to original. your hard drive OS has failed and needs to be re-installed. the problem maybe is that when you do that option you will get all your data erased. your solution to that since you can still get the data on the drive when used as external is to back it up. then full restore your system.

if you dont have your restore kit, you can use your Windows OS to fix it, repair option when you boot from CD.

Where can i buy a primary internal battery 601.number 1021 08


What's a primary internal battery? There are two batteries on laptops: 1) CMOS Battery - this battery is certainly internal because you will have to disassemble the laptop in 99% of the cases to get to it. This battery control the computer's memory and allows it to keep up with things like the date and time and other important stuff even if the power cord and other batter is out of the laptop. It is somewhere on the motherboard and looks silver and is about the size of a nickel. It costs less than $5.00 at Walmart, your grocery store or pharmacy. The most common size is CR2032

2) The Battery under the bottom of the laptop - This is a large battery and this is the battery that the laptop uses for power if you don't have the Power Cord plugged in. You can purchase this battery on ebay by just putting your Model number in the seardh. Ex. Compaq CQ60 Laptop Battery

Screen won't come on when laptop powers on


1. Software
- Try Fn + F5 or something like that

2. Electrical
- Remove battery, unplug power, hold power button for 60 seconds, turn on computer with power plug only, then shutdown, add battery and restart

3. Magnetic On/Off Switch to detect of Close/Open Lid
- Your magnet switch is fubar some how. Open up the speaker cover and see if your lid actuator switch that come in contact with the magnet on your lid cover is stuck or not (find where the magnet is in the back of the front lid cover, trace where the magnet area actually touches the base of the computer and you will find the switch)
- Workaround, start windows with lid at 30 degree angle

I bought a new charger for my laptop as my charger broke, and the little blue light comes on but the laptop won't turn on. I have the right charger, but it still won't turn on. The power light...


The first thing to do is check that the charger is putting out the correct voltage, which should be ~18 volt. Then try to start it without the battery.
If your voltage is OK and the battery out makes no difference, then I would suspect that you have a motherboard problem that must be fixed. If the computer starts up if you wiggle the DC plug where it goes into the computer, then it's the DC jack that is looks and must be re-soldered.

You need to replace your old battery. Don't over charged your battery. If you are using your laptop in your house it is better not to use it with battery. Just use the power adaptor/supply only. Then make sure you will drain the battery let say once a week. =)

My compaq presario cq60 won,t turn on. the power light next to the charger cable is on but it won,t turn on


Hello,

The charger is functioning well. There are still two possible reasons why your computer is not turning on. 1. The battery, 2. The computer itself.

What you need to do is to isolate the problem.

Here's what you can do to isolate the problem.

1. Remove the battery from the computer.
2. Turn on the computer using the cord. Remember not to put back the battery yet. Just the cable and the computer connected. If the computer turns on, then, you need to replace the battery.
3. If it still not turning on by using the cord alone. Try to wiggle the cord to check whether it's loose or not. Check if there are some signs of power on the computer. If there is a power like lights lit in the computer, then, it's the computer that's having the problem. You need to bring it to a technician if that's the situation.

Please let me know if there are any development after doing the troubleshooting above so that I can get back to you if you need my help.

Thank you for using fixya.com

My compaq CQ60 430SA wont turn on, I shut it down but It just wont start and the hard disk light doesnt turn on


The most likely problem is that the battery is dead or is in need of charge. If it won't take a charge then the charger is bad, or the battery is bad and is in need of replacement. The latter is the most likely cause. Get a high capacity battery for the computer off of amazon.com or ebay.com and you won't regret it.

Good luck on this computer repair.

CQ60-215DX, screen went black, full battery, and plugged into wall. Now it will not start


1. Take the battery out of the laptop & try to turn on the laptop using power adapter only. If the computer turns on, then the battery is defective & needs to be replaced.
2. Make sure the power adapter is not defective. Test the output voltage of the power adapter using a voltmeter. Compare the voltmeter reading to the nominal value written on the adapter or the laptop.
3. Make sure the DC jack is not loose or broken. A loose DC jack will need to be re-soldered. A broken one will need to be replaced.
4. If you have another processor which is compatible with your laptop's model, try swapping processors & test to see if the laptop will work.
5. The power button could be bad.
6. The motherboard could be defective & needs to be replaced
