Hi, my name is ArmyMason, hate to tell you this, but it sounds as if you have a bad Processor. Did you recently experience a bad storm with lightning? Was their a lot of dust on the fan? Lightning could have struck the computer and killed the processor or excessive overheating of the processor could have also been the case. If it was a lightning strike I would contact the insurance agency and have them replace your computer. Reason I think its the processor is because you don't recieve any post and the fan spins for a second and then shuts off.

Won't start but CPU fan vibrates but will not go full blast. Intermittant


It appears you have a faulty CPU fan and it is causing the CPU to overheat and shut down.
I suggest you replace the CPU fan. remove any dust from the heatsink and put new heatsink compound on the CPU/heatsink.

The CPU fan is being detected, but there is a problem with compatability or there is a fault in the fan it's self. Have you tried your original fan?

HI ker7758 ,

You may need to apply "Thermal paste/grease " to the CPU.

You can watch this video tutorial from Youtube:

There are different types of thermal grease. You don't have to buy the expensive ones. The cheapest on the market should be able to do the job.

Actually it boots, just that you don't see it. Try using another monitor - even a tv will do: disconnect the present monitor, connect the new one and reboot. If you get an image then the monitor is dead, replace it. If you don't then the onboard video card id dead, get a new one and try again. If even now it.s dead then you need a new motherboard.

Laptop wont stay on longer than approx 3 seconds. How do I check the switch?


if the switch at least starts the laptop.. then it is not the switch

check that you can boot the pc with the battery pulled out of the laptop and the power supply plugged in...

if this works then you need a new battery

if this does not work.... then the motherboard or the power adapter plug maybe the issue.. is the plug on the side of the laptop solid... or sloppy fitting..

if solid then the motherboard cpu and memory are the suspected components next..

is there beep noises during boot for the three seconds that occur???

Compaq presario c300 wont turn on at all


Looks like a bad motherboard ,have you tried another power adapter the one that connects to the wall socket.
The motherboard could cost over $100 ,chepaer on Ebay or you could take it to a Compaq/HP service center and ask for a quote on the repair.

My Compaq Presario 700 note book is dead


It's possible your battery is dead. Or your cpu fan may be dead which will cause it to shut down. Try holding down the key for your model that will let it boot into safe mode. This will at least narrow down a software problem. It doesn't mean that you have no OS just because you don't see it! You may also have a bad power supply.
If you can get a bootable OS cd or restore disk for your system see if it will let you boot up.

Wont start up


my wife has a presario that had a similar problem - it would boot up, then immediately shut down. I took off the side plate and blew off some of the dust inside. that worked for a couple of days then the symptoms returned. I took it apart again but this time I removed the cpu fan and the cpu heat sink. I cleaned all the **** off the fan and the heat sink and replaced it. this time it stayed on. I checked out the power supply. compaq installed a very cheap power supply - only 250 watts. a replacement power supply for the same machine but with an output of 300 watts is available. as soon as I can scrape up the change, I'm gonna change the PS
