Laptop power shuts down after 2 seconds

I have a Compact Presario F700 laptop that just stopped working. When power is turned on, it shuts off after 2 seconds. Does not start any of BOOT process. Fan does not turn on. All 3 LED's on lower left hand side of keyboard area turn on, then 2 outside LED's turn off after 1 to 2 seconds. Also the LED on the touch pad mouse does the same. Trouble shooting done as of now:
1. Tried new AC Power supply/charger
2. Pulled battery out and ran from supply only
3. Pulled out hard drive and repeated 1 and 2
4. Pulled out RAM and repeated 1 and 2
5. Pulled out DVD drive and tried 1 and 2
6. Reseated Battery, HD, RAM and DVD drives, still same.

I am thinking that it may be the fan circuitry/sensor. I have tried to open it up but I can not find the tricks to get into it. I have removed all the screws I can find. Any ideas as to the problem?

Hold F2 key and set up to default settings choose to boot to the hard drive save it and exit.

if that does not work then hold F8 chose to log in safe mode and from there try to find what issue is causing that particular problem...

otherwise try to download the ultimate boot cd (click here) and burn it into a bootable cd inserted on your pc and repair whatever is causing your nightmare.

I recently bought a compaq presario f700 off of a display and my microsoft office keeps telling me I need a product key. I didn't get one when I purchased the laptop. What do I do?

I don't know what version you're working with is it 2003 or 2007? You didn't specify what you're looking for. Most installers doesn't work with the same key at different MS Office source. I tried 2007 but all I got is a single key but it doesn't work in all downloaded installers. Besides, all you get is a trial version. However, you have to try 2003 with these two sets of product key: GWH28-DGCMP-P6RC4-6J4MT-3HFDY /// KHDJJ-CCXFF-6(or G - not sure)M98D-3HRQX-HYYQY.

This is my third time writing a comment about
I don't know what you did and didn't do so don't become angry if this is something you have already tried. Uninstall the drivers for the network and reinstall the previous version which is the link above. Are you getting any errors other than the amber light ? When you are at work can you connect via hard wire (RJ45 connector) If you can, call the ISP at work and have them take a look at your machine's settings. Of course you'll need the administrator's blessings. Really they can take over your machine and check it out in minutes.
Hope this helps...WB

Installed McAfee on Compaq Presario F700. IE7 frozed up.

If you have McAfee Internet Security, there could be some settings that have disabled connection. I had this issue with McAfee once myself.

Open the McAfee security center and try to tone down any firewall settings, antiphishing, etc. For me, I turned off antiphishing and firewall altogether and it worked, but maybe not recommended.

Sound video and internet

You need to install the drivers for all those devices. Which you will get from the HP Website but the problem you may have is that this laptop was only available with Vista so there may not be any drivers available to XP.
