Question about Compaq Presario V5102NR Notebook
My laptop has stopped working, I can power it on either using battery or AC cord. The fans both start, the power light is on but nothing else happens, it does not attempt to try to boot? There is no disk activity and caps lock etc dosn't work. Any ideas?
I just had same problem with 2 laptops. Power light came on and fan ran a few secs but nothing else. I replaced motherboard and CPU in one. The other just had to reseat CPU and it works like a charm. I thought it was AC adapter or LCD but it just had to be reseated. I would try that before I bought anything.

I ran into the same problem with my Armada E500. In my case, it was a faulty RAM module. What I would suggest is start by removing the battery, and the charger. Then continue by removing the plastic section above your keyboard (there is a single screw holding it in place on the rear end of the laptop. This plastic covers the right-hand hindge) from there, there are four plastic tabs that you slide down to remove the keyboard. This will give you clear access to the ram. Remove the module(s) and, using a soft eraser, gently clean the contacts. If your laptop has two sticks of ram, I would also recommend putting them in opposite ram slots. After that, replace the keyboard and plastic bezzel, reconnect the battery and charger, and try to boot it up again

are you referring to the fan assemblies that go all the way across the back , including over the jack? It comes out in one piece, there are screws at the forward and kind of hidden and hard to get to without completely disassembling the entire thing. I think you'll see that the little piece that comes up and over the jack is part of the fan assembly.
The hp website has a service/hardware manual that has blow-apart illustrations in it...that's how I found it, and you will too.

Could be a bad mother board or a hard drive..see if you can connect the hard drive with a USB on another machine and run a test on it...
