Compaq presario 730us won't power on

Hi, My Compaq Presario 730us has a problem. It seemed liked overheating. It would shut down after a few minutes. Now it won't start at all and when I plug it in there's an electrical smell. I've taken it apart and cleaned around the fan, which was dusty. Is there anything else that I can do, or do you think something has burned up, and if so, what, and what can I do? (Also I don't know if this helpfs, but when the adapter is plugged in it has a green light, but when the computer is plugged into the adapter, the green light flashes really fast.) Thanks for your help!:)

Sounds like the power converter that is probably on the motherboard, so you may be looking at a new motherboard. Hard to tell without seeing it in person, but you can take it some place locally and they can troubleshoot power issues for you. GL!

Overheating on Compaq Presario Notebook Model C501NR


OverheatingWhen the CPU overheats then it will shut down (i.e. thermaloverload) and won't boot up again until it has cooled down. If this is theproblem is not fixed then the CPU will eventually fail.
A faulty fan causes the problem or the fan and heat sink assembly are cloggedwith dust.
Check the CPU fan to see if it spins freely, if not replace the fan.
If the fan and heat sink is clogged with dust the remove the dust and make surethe vents are clear and dust free. Use a small brush and can of compressed airto do this.

My compaq presario cq56 laptop come on and goes off


Sounds like it's overheating, if it comes on for a few seconds or even minutes. Turn it upside down, and clean up the cooling fan with a nice dry paintbrush. You may need to remove a back cover to get to the fan though.

My Compaq Presario CQ50-103NR Notebook PC keeps shutting down. Sometimes right away sometimes after a few minutes. The left side of laptop seems to get hot while the right side stays cool. Can You please...


Hi:
You most likely have a heat problem, as you have realized. To fix the problem, your heatsink/fan assembly needs cleaned, and then reinstalled with new heat sink compound. Some disassembly is required, so this isn't an easy job. If you go to a reputable shop, and tell them what you want them to do, rather than just tell them your laptop is shutting down, you should get it done for a fair price!

My compute will not turn on


The laptop might be overheating, sometimes when the laptop cant get any ventilation it shuts down and will not properly power up till the temperature issues are delt with.
But you usually get at least a few seconds of power before it shuts down again, so it may not be that, sounds a bit more like the CPU is dead and will need replaced.

Hi, I pulled the power button board cable away from the board on my compaq presario cq50. Can it be reattached or will I have to get a new one Thanks Carla


You can get it reattached. Take your computer to the repairman's.... check for reasonable price because some have the part in store while others make you pay more for "ordering" the new part. Replacement/getting a new one depend on how badly the part was damaged.

Compaq presario cq50-100em wont start up


I'm sorry to say this sounds like a system board failure. On my HP DV200t, a very similiar issue occured, eventually only the led where you plug in the power cord would turn blue. I replaced the system board and all the issues went away.
Hope this helps, and I am sorry to be the bearer of bad news.
