    The compaq Presario 1200 laptop often takes a number of pushes of the on button to make it work. It is random and sometimes comes on after 6 tp 10 pushes but never comes on with one push and release of the on button. No idea why.

Laptop won't turn on, battery won't charge


I had a similar issue with the Armada M700 from Compaq. Never did figure it out exactly. But I do know this. When you unplug the power chord and take out the battery and plug the power chord back in while the battery is out usually for some reason it turned on allowing me to replace the battery which would then begin charging. Your problem interests me because I can really relate!
