Notebook has no lights, no power, no cursor. When I push the on power button, a little orange light flashes on the front bottom left of the notebook, second icon from left on a clear, small screen but this is the only indication of power--no fan or anything. Any ideas? Thanks.

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.
I imagine the orange flashing light is over the battery? The compaq laptops have a little blue light that will typically light up when it's plugged into the wall. If it is plugged in ensure that the little blue light is on. If it isnt you may have a n issue with your power supply unit, or there may be an issue with the port where the plug is plugged in. Thus causing the battery to be dead and the computer not power on. If you have any other compaq computers you can also try plugging in that power adapter, or try picking up a universal or another hp/compaq charger from somewhere such as best buy to test it out.
look it may be a static charge on the motherboard but there are alot of things that make this kind of problems to cut them out try to plug the notbook on external monitor and if it worked you will have a problem with your screen if not then there is a problem in the motherboard
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.
