Question about HEWLETT-PACKARD Compaq Presario CQ60-615DX Notebook
When I power on my compaq presario laptop, it shows dim dark light on the monitor with a white dash ( _ ) on the top left corner of the monitor. I have already tried to take the battery from the back of the laptop out and press the HOME button for 20 seconds, then put the battery to its place and power it back on, but it does not help at all. Also, when I take the charger that charges my laptop out, the laptop completely shuts down. What replacements do I need to make in the computer to make it work? Please help! Thanks!
Computer does not boot up The problem maybe the RAM, it is faulty or just needs reseating to make proper electrical contact.
Reseat the RAM and then boot up your laptop. If it still does not boot up then remove the RAM module/s and take them to your friendly computer repair shop and get them to test the RAM for you. Just like you sometimes need a mechanic to repair your car, sometimes you do need a technician to diagnose and identify the fault or faults on your computer. Not only does a good service technican have the experience to deal with this type of problem, they also have the equipment that allows them to look at things the average computer user can't see, and he has a collection of replacement parts that can be used to quickly test individual components on your computer.

SOURCE: it will not start.
There are several things that you should check: 1. Remove the ram and start the laptop: check if you hearany beeps. If thereis no beep sound, then it either the processor or the motherboard are bad. 2. In this situation check the AC adapter. You can test theoutput voltage with a voltmeter. If you cannot do that, find a known good ACadapter and use it for testing the laptop. It is possible the laptop appears tobe dead because the AC adapter is bad (and the battery is discharged). If youknow that the AC adapter is working properly and it outputs correct voltage butthe laptop is still dead, most likely you have a power issue on the motherboard(or power board on some laptops) and it has to be replaced. 3. Remove the memory module and install it in another slot. Hope this will help you. Good Luck.

Considering the change in time and date,I would suggest you replace the CMOS battery.This battery helps in memory storage of your PC.
Have you tried the charger on another PC maybe?Try it,and if it fails replace it.
Remove the hard disk and re-fix it again.
Hope this helps.Thanks!
