Question about Compaq Presario 1200XL104 Notebook
I have an old Compaq prosignia 150 running windows 98. The dc power jack broke and i disassembled the laptop and replaced the faulty jack with a new one.On re assembly i plugged in the dc power jack,the green led comes on to indicate power is coming through but when i press the on button nothing happens,not even a sound of the hdd spinning, any suggestions as to what is wrong.
Could you hear the sound of the Fan insidle? I think there should be a fan inside of this kind of old laptop. Please have a check. If the fan is OK. I think you should there should be something wrong with the mother board inside. You could try cleaning your CMOS by some way and try again. Of course. the first thing you gonna do is checking whethere all the connections of your new power jack is ok. Jimmie

2. Battery will not charge in the laptop.
3. Laptop runs fine off a charged battery.
4. With the AC Adapter connected the laptop appears to be dead.
No power LED or battery charge LED activity.
5. Laptop randomly powers off without any warning.
If your laptop is out of warranty, then you can fix the problem by re-soldering DC-IN jack on the system board. If it
