Fast Blinking Power Button

I have a compaq Presarion C500 Model Rz341UA. The computer will not start. It starts the hard drive and immediately stops and the power light starts blinking. This happens with both battery and AC adapter connected. It shutdowns only by pressing the power button for a long period of time.

Check your RAM. I had the same problem with my C500. I ended up having a bad stick of RAM. The only other cause I know of is the hard drive. Although this is rare if you had no problems with your operating system before.

Try removing the battery and only using AC power. If the power
LED on the power brick does not come on then replace the power supply. If it works with just AC then replace the battery. If it still doesn't work, warranty replace the computer.

C500 Laptop won't come on power button just flashes


Have you tried attaching an external monitor when the LCD screen is disconnected from the motherboard? this connector is located under the keyboard strip – a piece of plastic just above the keyboard.
If it works, this way, then the video cable isn’t seated properly in the connector on the back of the screen. Plugging the video cable back in should fix the problem.
I don’t know how comfortable you are with taking apart laptops but I think that this information could be useful for you.

Compaq has a website with downloadable drivers for all their computers. Download the drivers, burn to CD and install. Trick is, one model could have different components inside, so they list several different drivers, and not all drivers work with all computers. So unless you know what components are inside your computer, you need all the drivers and just try them until you get the right one.
