Fuse in laptop

Hello. I'm a proud, new owner of a damaged Evo 410c (Compaq) laptop. The previous owner owner tried to power it with an AC/AC transformer. I have recently opened the casing and removed the minature, glass fuse which was ejected from it's holder. My questions: Where can I get a replacement fuse and what will it cost? I can't find the fuse holder -where is it located?

Normally the fuse rating is stamped on the end caps of the fuse. It would be rated in amps. Just get one that has the same rating and length.
The fuse will be held in place by spring clips that clip on the end caps of the fuse. Look for these clips, they will fit nearly onto the metal caps of the fuse.

Compaq N610c does not power on on AC adapter or on Battery :(


Hello,

it might be that the AC adapter is no more working. To confim this, remove the laptop battery and test the AC adapter with the laptop.

You can also borrow a friend's AC adapter and test it with your laptop.

I wish you good luck.

Compaq Evo 410c down after AC/AC plug-in


let me read all 3 posts, why not just have one and comment to one?
symptoms for all, do nor read posts from folks telling you to find fuse clips seen in 1980s, PC, forget that. this is all SMD parts.
wiki that....
  • previous owner used a AC/power pack and blew up this LT..
  • its 19vdc not 24vac, or you WILL BLOW IT UP.
  • fixing that if true is non trivial to say the least.
  • it will not power on with battery removed, and with correct 19vdc pack attached,
  • or it does turn on sometimes but locks up in XP screens.
  • This is a 13 year old LT. so fixing one this old is dicey.
  • (reason is XP is dead OS and parts hard to find)
  • why look for fuses. if a fuse works on 1 boot why would it fail 2nd boot? answer its not a fuse its dream of a fuse. (hope)
  • Does BIOS screens work,
  • Does using a DT screen on the rear 15p, VGA port work can the external screen be made to work.
  • Does booting to any bootable CD work, HP windows install or live LINUX cd, or window live PE CD work. if yes the LT is ok
  • just has bad OS or BAD HDD.
  • Power dead totally and 19vdc on the MOBO input pins
  • is a dead mobo, no BIOS,on both screens, 19vdc in is a dead mobo. The fuse if present are SMD fuses F1,F1, if mobo marked, L1, L2, those are inductors not fuse... nice try though.

Compaq EVO N400C PC Notebook Problem brought new battery! fully charged all night! turn laptop on within one second the thing turns off! AC works fine! new battery! old laptop! what can i do, please help?


your laptop should function even without a battery. Remove the battery you just bought and see if only with AC adapter, would your laptop turn on?

If not, then try removing the memory and see using a pencil eraser, clean the contacts of the memory and see if you can power your laptop with only ac

My compaq 610c EVO will not power up. I applied reverse voltage of 12 volts to it by mistake (wrong power supply) now it will not start up on a good supply. Battery system appears to not work. I have no...


you may have damage the main mother board. replacing the fuse,or regulators will not help.better to replaced the main mother board.and stay use the same hd and cd.but you may have to reload if you are not replacing with the same exact board. good lock

Laptop not charging


Unfortunately on most Compaq/HP mobile devices the AC pin is soldered directly onto the motherboard. If the pin is severely bent of broken off then a service is required, usually to replace the motherboard. Having the broken off like then can actually create a minor crack in the PCB. Sorry for the bad news.
