Question about HEWLETT-PACKARD Compaq Presario CQ60-615DX Notebook

1 Answer

My Cq60 Compaq laptop doesn't turn on.

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.

SOURCE: Hi guys, I have big problems with my computer.

Hi,
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!

My compaq presario cq60 wont turn on


Does the laptop boot? Sound? Do you see a "ghost Image" in the monitor in a bright light? If so, Could be backlighting, Inverter, on/off switch that shuts the monitor on/off when you open and close the lid. Can you boot to safe mode with networking? If so, Open the Device Manager, Uninstall the Graphics Adapter, reboot, the software will apply a generic driver, If the Graphics adapter has not failed completely.

White Screen Compaq Presario CQ60


Regarding ; White screen , I flipped my notebook over and removed the power source(s) , power cord and battery. I then removed the three screws in the battery cavity and the two outside corner screws to gain access to the connection for the LCD and found a loose connection. It seems that the wire that connects to the screen was being moved every time I opened and closed my computer. So very glad to find that bulb and inverter board was not bad. Prior to this , I did try external monitor and found that all was okay as far as operation of start-up.

I want to turn on bluetooth device on my compaq presario cq60-410us


@upeskofrens

Upon checking the specifications of this Compaq Presario CQ60-220, it appears that it doesn't have a Bluetooth chip built-in to it. That means that the computer is capable of Bluetooth technology but you need to have a USB Bluetooth Adapter (see image below).

To make sure if you have Bluetooth installed, open the Device Manager (click Start > type Device Manager) and look for Bluetooth. Some computer brands have a Bluetooth sticker at the bottom casing to indicate that the computer has a Blueooth device installed.


Cheers

Compaq Presario R3000 dim screen but not dark


Sounds like the auto-dim in the BIOS is set too low. Fortunately the Compaq R3000 allows you to adjust the brightness right from the keyboard. Hold down the [FN] function key while tapping the [F8] key will brighten the screen, while [FN]-[F7] will dim it. The settings are different for running on AC power and battery, so you must do each individually.
