Question about Compaq Presario M2000 Notebook
I was using my laptop just yesterday when all of a sudden the screen turned blue and said ' Preparing to Hibernate ' . It was plugged in and charging at the same time. After about two hours or so, I tried to turn it back on but nothing happens. One of the lights [ the light shaped as a Lightening Bolt ] blinks three times then stops when I try to turn it on. I tried to clean it because I had this same issues before but still, nothing. I then tried to take out both the battery and the Power Cord, hold down the power button for about a minute, plug in the Cord, press the power button again and still nothing happens. I'd like to know if it's the battery or the power cord or the laptop in general.
Please help. It would be very appreciated.
To take out of hibernation,press the power button for less than 1 second.
Then go into the control panel and disable hibernation as described below.
Disable the your mouse's "ability to wake up computer" in device manager.
Use keyboard to wake up your computer.
Click Start > Control Panel > Performance and Maintenance > Power Options > Hibernate tab.
Then clear the Enable Hibernation check box.
If this doesn't resolve the issue,Please post back.
Please rate this a fixya.

Same thing happened to my daughter's Dell laptop. She needed a new power cord (including the little black box).
Though, you will want to check and see if where it plugs in to your laptop is not damaged or blocked (tape, dirt?) first.
