Question about HP Compaq Presario 730US Notebook

1 Answer

MY Compaq Presario 730 does not power on. It turns out almost instantly after I push the power button( the lights blinks and it shut down instantly). My battery was dead before this problem and I have turned on the laptop without battery a couple of times. Can this be related? Thanks for any help!

Hi,


Have you tried the below steps :-

Remove all power (battery and adapter)
Hold down the power ON button for 30secs (dispersing all internal voltage)
Plug the power adapter in only (for the moment)
Turn on.


Are you certain the ac adapter is fine? Have you tested it with a meter? Also, one of the most common problems seen in "more used" laptops is the power jack itself. These jacks ofen wear or break off the board because it is constantly being plugged in & unplugged. Sometimes a simple solder job can fix this.
You will have to decide if it is worth the "free" price. If you have some time, some skill, and some patience, go ahead and dig deeper. I wouldnt go throwing alot of money into it, but it may be worth a few hours of time


If yes, still getting only blinks.......More likely Hard Drive has Gone!!!!

Hope i helped you.

DO RATE THE SOLUTION.

Thanks for using "Fixya".

Presario f750us, push power button it lights up and goes right back off


I have seen another Presario desktop with this problem, and it was dust in the front panel jamming the switch on. Pushing the switch turned the machine on, but because it stayed on, after 4-5 seconds the PC shut down again.

I had to remove the front panel and clean out all the dust, then lubricate the switch movement.

Is it shuting down? Or just instantly going off.

If it is shutting down, adjust the power settings.
  • Control Panel
  • Power Options
  • Make sure the scheme you want is selected. For a desktop it should be Home/Office or Always on.
  • Make sure that System Standby and Hibernate (if available) are set to the length you want.

Remove the power supply after everything is unplugged and take it to your nearest electronics store. They should have a tester there. This is probably the problem.
