Compaq Presario V5000 does not come on

The solution to your problem lies in one of the following three areas:

1.) Your charger is faulty and is therefore not able to pass power to your laptops battery.

2.) The charging connector on the laptop has come loose from the contacts. Therefore a bad connection.

3.) Your battery is faulty.

I think possibility 2 is the most likely, although you will have to test possibility 3 by removing the battery and plugging in your charger and seeing if the laptop powers on.If it does power on then that rules out possibility 1 and 2 leaving a faulty battery.

My screen stays black when you turn it on. model HSTNN-C17C which is located under the battery. Presario V5000

This isn't a desktop PC by the way. Do any of the lights come on? If not, try to run the laptop from the AC power. If the lights come on but no display, then your backlight or inverter on the LCD panel for your V5000 might be bad.

My compaq presario v5000 does not power on?


Please try to plug the power cord into the source and used DC power source. Let the laptop charge for 5 - 10 minutes then after the given time please turn on the laptop. If it does not work extend the time from5 -10 to 15 - 30 minutes then repeat the stpes again. If it does not turn on then please try to check if the battery is charging. Then if all the procedure you have already perform and still no positive result then i advice you to please find a computer technician in your please and let that person fix the problem for you.

My compaq presario v5000 shut down and wont restart

Depending on your Bios Version I think later then V44 fixed a bug that would cause your computer no to start if the battery was dead with the V5000. Remove the battery and try booting from just AC power.

I have also had the same issue when my bios battery is loose or dead. The battery can be accessed from the memory area. Once you open it on the left should be memory and on the right will be the wifi card. You don't need to unplug the cables just remove the wifi card and examine the battery. The battery is held by a very very flimsy piece of platic and really easy to break. The best thing I have found is using a little piece of cardboard from a box or something and using it to keep the battery tight, just dont go shaking the laptop alot and it will hold it. It might also be possible your bios battery is dead.

From what I say I would hit power it would power for about 3 seconds the power light would flash then turn off.
