Try to remove your battery from the back of the laptop, then power the laptop back with your power cable without the battery inside, then if it comes up, swap your battery with your friend's own (battery) also, and see if it works now.
If it works with your friend's battery inside, then you might just have to get a new battery.
Goodluck!

If the power adapter is not charging your laptop but it chargers a friends, then that means the DC input jack inside your laptop has either broken off, gotten pushed in, or has otherwise been disconnected. Unfortunately you will need to have the machine serviced. Your best bet would be to call Compaq support.

Hi, I have a Compaq Presario CQ56 & the scroll area on my mouse pad isn't working. Can this area be turned off and if so, is there a way to turn it back on/unlock it?


The scroll pad on the touch pad needs a particular driver Synaptics Pointing Device Driver. This will actually run at the startup after installed which will activate the functionality of scroll on the touch pad. You can also actually turn this function on and off so this is a friendly user.
If you do not have that driver that comes with your laptop you can go here:

Good day.

I'm thinking the same as you, the power cord is the problem, try to find a friend with the same brand of computer to try, for exemple HP have on a lot of laptop the same power cord.

Laptop not powering


try a simple power cycle. Take out the battery, leave power adapter plugged in. Hold down the power button for about one minute. Then hit the power button normally this should correct the problem

Computer will not turn on


You need to check the power cord, borrow, beg or steal one to test. If the laptop does not charge with a different power cord then the problem is elsewhere eg. a faulty power pack or even a faulty connector that plugs into the laptop (borrow a multi-meter to check the voltage of your power pack), also borrow a power pack to test your laptop, before you buy or send it away for a quote/repair.

If you determine that the laptop is faulty, then the cost of replacing a motherboard would not be worth it, even if you found one, it would most likely be a second hand one and how would you know it works, also if you are not technically minded you will it difficult to swap motherboards and it may not work when you put it together.

I suggest you put your money towards a new laptop, it will be faster and better.

Try removing the battery pack and then power up with the cord. If it works, then it means that the battery pack needs replacing/recharging.

If it still dos not work, the cable could be faulty. Get it replaced.

Battery problem or fan?


If the laptop posts (power on self test)
and you see stuff on the screen, no matter how short , do the following: (this checks for a software problem)when booting up press F8 and when you get to the menu, boot up into safe mode,
then restore the pc back to a date before you had the problem, and/or remove any program you installed prior to you having the problem,

if that don't work Try a bootable anti virus disc, use it to check for any viruses ,
if not try a recovery disc, or operating system disc ,

both disc's will try to access the hard drive. if they do not work, (nothing has changed) nothing comes on the screen.

laptop does not post:
(then it is a hardware problem)
try the following first.check battery is seated correctly and that the power pack is functioning,

if the battery has gone flat and the power pack is not working ,the laptop will not start.

Remove any hardware you may have installed prior to you having the problem.

remove the screw(s) holding the cover plate on the back of the laptop where the ram lives and remove the memory sticks,
clean the gold edges both sides, with rubbing alcohol or a pencil eraser, and re-insert them, (not an ink eraser as it will do damage)

swap them around if you have more than one,
try one at a time.
if you only have one, borrow one from a friend or try the ram in your friends laptop ,if that's possible, or

get a friend or family member to download a "memory chip diagnostic's" program such as memcheck 1.70 and boot up of it ,it will check your ram ,if not

take the ram to your local pc shop and ask them to check it for you (they may do that for you)

if you can establish that the ram and power pack is ok, and anti virus and recovery /system disc's do not work,
it may be that the motherboard or the cpu is failing

Generally a dead hard drive would not stop the laptop from posting.

good luck with that and let me know how you get on
