Either the power supply is putting out too low voltage or the power jack is bad.Try moving the ac adapter tip around while its starting up to see if it keeps it running or shuts it off.If it makes no difference try another ac adapter that does work for sure and see if thats the problem.If neither approach works,then the HDD may be seizing or one of the ram sticks may be bad.Some sort of hardware conflict can cause shut downs.You would have to take the bootstrap approach to narrow it down to one pacific component.

When I push the start button on my old Compaq Presario 7000 Desktop PC the power light above the button goes on and the file access light to the left of the button goes on and both stay on. I don't hear...


Try doing a power flee.. that is..

remove the power cable from the computer and all the usb devices if connected and the then press and hold the power button for 30 seconds and then try rebooting the computer.

Another possibility is that.. computer is not able to find the boot sector on the harddisk due to which its not able to turn on completely.

Another possibility is that the device boot order of the computer might have changed too in the BIOS. To resolve it easily we need to chat with each other, so reach us at hnetworking.com

Compaq R3000


r u mention for battery light?if is it true,then the light is blinking because of your laptop want to make sure the power supply charge that battery.if it is in charging condition,the light on.but if the light goes off,that mean, the battery is already full.

But when u use adaptor without battery, the light will goes off because no charging session is in progress which has same behaviour with battery full(during battery full,no charging session occur)

Wireless internet not working


Hello,

My name is ArmyMason, might I suggest that you do a system restore to take your computer back to a date the computer was working correctly. Click on start, all programs, Accessories, system tools and click on System Restore. Tell it to restore and choose a date on the calendar. If this doesn't resolve the issue run Anti virus to see if your computer is infected. If this doesnt help please consider using our Premium service.

Thanks,
ArmyMason

Compaq presario 2500 notebook won't boot


This sounds like a weird solution, but it worked for me. I recently bought a used Presario 2500, it worked when the guy showed it to me, when I got home it didn't work two days later. I tried several tips from the web, finally I started pushing several buttons randomly. I pushed the Email (Envelope) button, and the computer powered on suddenly. Now, the Envelope button is the only button that will power the computer on. When the computer is on, that button will also bring up Outlook, but when the computer is off, that button turns it on. Let me know if this fixes it for you.

Compaq presario wireless button no longer working


There is a mechanical problem with the R3000 wireless button and volume-down button where they seem to push fine but are in fact failing to make electrical contact. I know of two work-arounds.
* Try pushing the button with a capped pen, gently at first, and then with increasing pressure. (Not so hard you break the plastic, please!) I suspect this gives the buttons just enough extra "oomph" that contact is established.
OR
* Push up on the battery compartment while pressing the buttons. If the battery is in, you can acheive this same effect by putting your laptop on a table and popping up the screen, then applying downwards pressure on that corner of the laptop body while pushing the button. I suspect this aligns things properly so that the button is able to depress just a hair further.

You may even find that these actions "loosen things up" enough to cause the buttons to work like new for a little while. I hope this works for anyone reading this!

Boot screen of death??


IT seems to me that If you were to push the delete key or F2 and go into the bios and go into bootup devices and make sure that the first device is cdrom or your Hdd if thats all ok, try to take out your cd rom drive and replace it make sure it is pushed snuggley into place and retry it see if that works,You may also try the F8 keys and start from last known good configuration or safe mode, try that and let me know if it helps you out, thanks Happy Holiday bear001

Start up problems


it fails to boot-? does it just sit there, or does it reboot continuously? Do you have the os cd for it- you might need it to do a recovery mode and run chkdsk /r that might fix the file error
