You may have memory problems. Memory module(s) may be defective or not seated correctly in place. Check the memory modules first. It seems that you have already checked the RAM modules.
Connect the computer to a monitor and reboot to see if anything is displayed on external monitor.

Could be bad ram,hard drive or possibly a bad display panel or video card.Try using different ram and removing the hard drive then try it.Also,connect it to an external display and see if it shows video or not.If after trying these things it still isn't showing let me know and i'll try to help more.

has it been recently attached to a docking station, or a external monitor?

I do not have a Presario Compaq handy, but on my Dell, the key combination to change monitor outputs is Fn + F8.

If you can see which of your keys on your laptop keyboard switches the video output perhaps that might bring it to life.

but it might be more than that. is it that the computer is dead? no beeps, fans or activity? , or does it have all that, but no screen output?

try plugging in an external screen if you have the opportunity, and see if it shows anything.

I have a dell Inspirion 9400 and it won't start. When I press the power button, all that happens is the power light and the dvd player light comes on and about 3 seconds it turns off. Does it with and...


It shows no power on your laptop but it shows you the dvd player led comes on then off. I would suggest try the following:
1. Remove laptop battery, optical drive, hard drive and ram. Remove external peripherals as well. 2. Make sure AC Adapter is not yet connected to the laptop. Press and hold on the laptop's power button for 10 seconds to drain the power flea. 3. Connect the AC Adapter to a known good power outlet, check AC Adapter power LED if it is on. Try to sense if AC Adapter is not making a bit of noise when it is plugin to the wall power outlet. 4. Connect now the AC Adapter to the laptop. Check if AC Adapter LED stays on when it is connected to the laptop. If the LED stays on means the AC Adapter is fine. If the AC Adapter LED turned off check the AC Adapter pin that goes to the laptop AC socket if it is loose. 5. If AC Adapter stays on after connecting to the laptop try to power on laptop. If no power LED comes on then this is motherboard problem. 6. Before replacing the motherboard there is one checking needs to do. If you can open your laptop bottom part then good, do this when laptop is not connected to any power source. Try to reseat the laptop CMOS battery then try to power on laptop after, if still fails then replace motherboard. I hope this helps.

After turning it on it reads "press f1 to resume ;f10 to set up"


Hi I'm sorry, what is the message it shows? If it says "press F1 to continue" then do so, hit F8 and try "safe mode"
Really need to know what the message is.
Good luck
