Presario C500 laptop will not power on

I bought Laptop from a student she showed me with charged battery, it worked. As the power ran out, I plugged into wall ourlet and it showed that it was plugged in but after battery died so did the laptop.
* Light on front (orange looks like lighting bolt) is on when it's plugged into the wall (with or without battery)
* Battery is totally dead now, but when it had juice it turned on and can be ran.
* When I push the power button, it would start to boot up, then shut down as soon as it got to the windows screen, now the battery has no life to it what so ever. I trys to turn on then off in seconds, then the light on the front flashes (flickers)
* I have reseated the RAM... still no luck

The guy that ripped me off latter told me the HD went bad so he put in a HD from a simular model

How can I fix this problem, do I have to have the Motherboard replaced? or can it be fix... other words it is a ez fix, or costly.

Thanks for your help

My m2000 battery is not working


The possible causes are as follows:
1
Determine if the laptop battery is defective. While less than 1 percent of batteries are defective, the possibility is still there. If the battery is new and only charges some of the way, it may just require a BIOS update to charge fully. New batteries that refuse to charge at all may be defective. Purchase a new laptop battery to replace the defective one.

2
Test the laptop power adapter to see if it's faulty. Run the laptop directly from the laptop power adapter and without the battery. If the laptop does not work with the adapter plugged in, the adapter is dead and you will need to replace it. The laptop battery may refuse to charge if the adapter is faulty. Charge the battery with the laptop turned off.

3
Insert the laptop battery into another laptop to test it. If the laptop battery charges in another laptop, the laptop's motherboard may be bad. Replacing a motherboard in a computer can be very expensive. If the cost to fix the computer is not worth the cost of replacing the motherboard, consider purchasing a new laptop.

4
Reinstall the battery to ensure all connectors latch properly. The latch mechanism that holds the laptop battery should click into place. If the latch does not close, remove the battery and examine the compartment for signs of damage.

5
Troubleshoot the BIOS to determine if there is a hardware problem. Turn on the laptop and immediately enter BIOS setup by holding down the "Del" and "F1" or "F2" keys, depending on the make and model of the laptop. When the BIOS screen appears, see how long it takes for the battery to charge down. If the battery does not last as long as the BIOS setup, a hardware failure may be the problem.

New battery charging very slowly?


Power off your Laptop, unplug the power cable from the laptop as well, take the battery out and wait for about 5 minutes. Put the battery back in, make sure it is seated properly. Plug the laptop back in and power it on an see if that charges the battery quicker. If it doesn't you may have a bad battery, and I would contact the place you bought it and ask for an exchange.

you need to make sure your power adapter is providing enough power to both run the laptop & charge the battery. A very good way to do this is to compare your laptop voltage & ampere requirements (written on a sticker on the bottom of the laptop) with the voltage & ampere ratings of the power adapter. Voltages should be the same, or the power adapter's voltage about up to 0.5 volts more than the laptop's voltage rating. Amperage of the power adapter should be at least equal to or greater than the laptop's rating. It should never be less than the laptop's rating, or else the power adapter will be providing insufficient amperes to charge the battery. Of course, the power adapter's nominal amperage might be ok, but it degraded on usage. You can verify this by testing using a good or new power adapter.
If the battery did not charge using the new power adapter, take the battery off the laptop, & using a dry tooth brush, scrub in between the fins of the battery connector on the motherboard & on the battery it self, then put the battery back into the laptop & try again.
If this still did not resolve the problem, then the battery itself could be bad. Try it on another laptop, or try a good or new battery in your laptop.
If this did not work, there might be a possibility that the charging circuitry on the laptop's motherboard is defective & needs servicing. In order to do this, the laptop needs to be disassembled & the motherboard checked for defective/burned out components in the area near the DC jack. Any defective/burned out components found should be replaced, or you might need to replace the laptop's motherboard altogether

Compaq Presario C500 will not power up


You should have a 1yr manufacturing warranty, or possible a store warranty depending on where you bought it. Take it to the store or send it to compaq. It sounds like a tech issue that you would have to test parts to find out.
