My Compaq presario c500 won't turn on!

At first it would turn on then turn off 20 seconds later and the lightning symbol would flash. I decided to replace the battery and the flashing stopped but now the power button is flashing, I have no idea what's going on. I need help, please!!

My HP Compaq Presario CQ50-130US PC Notebook won't turn on. It just flashes on the front where the lightning bolt symbol is. It was running fine an hour ago.


Two probable problems the screen or the motherboard, if you have some technical skills you can open the laptop and figure out where the problem is using a multimeter. If you are not very good with computers the best thing you can do is to take it to the service center.

Presario C500 Wont turn on


sounds like the d/c adapter was either installed backward or the wrong part was installed, also check the connector on the new power cord to the laptop, you may have gotton an incorrect power cord. because what you describe is the internal power system is shorting out. take battery out and check it with a volt meter , if the is no volts/or negative volts on the battery ,it has gotten internaly reversed , and needs replacement.

FLASHING AMBER UNDER LIGHTNING SYMBOL


Is it an amber lightning bolt? (I am assuming thats what you mean by UNDER lightning symbol)

That is the charging symbol for your battery, it means your battery is being charged by your power adapter.

Comp will not turn on also see lightning bolt display


Hi All,


This happens because of static energy storing in the motherboard components.

We can try power drain to resolve this issue.


Try doing power drain by taking out the battery & keep holding down the power button for complete one minute to drain out the power from the computer components. Restart the computer after putting the battery in.
Try restarting the computer only with the AC power, without the battery & vice-versa.

That should resolve the issue, if the issue persists, then you have to contact service center.


Hope that information helped you!!
