Question about Compaq Presario R3000Z Notebook
Every time I shut my computer down I have the hardest time starting it back up. it use to take only a few tries of tapping or holding the power button, but not it takes forever. I started taking the top strip off so I had direct access to the button. This worked once, still after many tries. Any help would be much apprieciated.
Sounds like the power button itself, down to the level where the contact happens, needs cleaning. I have cleaned these types of contacts many times. It is tedious and involves dismantling of the unit to access the switch contact area. Then clean both of the contacts with alcohol swab, then continue wiping with dry swabs until all alcohol is gone.
