I just came back from a few weeks away and discovered that my laptop is dead. It won't switch on at all. I would be very grateful if you could advise me what to do please. Thanks.

Re: Compaq Presario R3000

If you are getting no lights at all on the laptop, you need to check the "powerline" - everything between the outlet and the back of the laptop.

Start by removing the battery. Then, check to see if the power pack has an ON light, if it does, make sure it is on, if it has a light and it is off, try plugging the power pack into a different outlet you know works. If it is still off, you have a bad powerpack and needs replacing. If the powerpack does not have a light, you need to find a geek friend with a multimeter (or get one at WalMart for $4), and check the powerpack's output in volts matches whatever it says on the side of the pack. If the voltages do not match up (generally) you have a bad powerpack. If you are getting normal voltage from the powerpack but the laptop is not getting any power, you have a different set of problems. Is the laptop beeping when you try to turn it on? Do you get any activity at all?

Good luck...

Compaq Presario R3000 dim screen but not dark

Sounds like the auto-dim in the BIOS is set too low. Fortunately the Compaq R3000 allows you to adjust the brightness right from the keyboard. Hold down the [FN] function key while tapping the [F8] key will brighten the screen, while [FN]-[F7] will dim it. The settings are different for running on AC power and battery, so you must do each individually.

Where is wireless connection switch on Compaq Presario R3000?

Well if u have the same exact one as myself.
The wireless button is on the front right near the corner. above it and on the corner is the wireless symbol. If its working it should be lit blue. push it and see if it lights up blue for a few seconds. You should get a wireless connection confirmation on the screen.

hope this helps you

Compaq Presario R4000 Notebook won't boot

Seem to be a problem with your power switch doing malfunction or bad motherboard connector or your computer has been setting at hibernate mode. Check those settings going to >> Start >> Control Panel >> Power Options..........Set your droplist to "never: and also UNCHECK the hibernate mode.

Another tip, take out the battery, and see what happen (only connected with AC)

Compaq Presario R3000 PC

Hi Tom,
It appears without looking at the laptop you have removed or dislogged the cable that goes between the motherboard and the screen. This is not hard to do they are very delicate. The only thing you can do is take it to a qualified service tech. i get these periodically in my shop too. Check the cable before you do so to see if you can reconnect it but be very carefull.
Be mucho blessed,
