Question about HP Compaq Presario V2000 Notebook

1 Answer

Laptop notebook I purchased a used laptop notebook that must have came out last year. When I turn it on the system lights flash once and nothing happens. I keep the on button pressed and the lights just blink on and off, but the computer doesn't turn on. I installed a new hard drive but the problem persists. What could be the problem?

Battery light flashes and nothing else happens

Yes, the socket broken loose could be your trouble and is common as we are not careful when we insert the plug all the time.

Why does the battery light keep flashing?

The battery is failing to recharge itself.
Contact Dell -- a battery should last longer than that.

Lenovo 3000 N200 laptop not starting up, power light on

Keep pressed the power button of your laptop for about 30 seconds, the machine will power down.
--The above step may not be required as already so many days passed by.
Then plug it into the power adapter.
Switch the laptop on.
Boot in "safe mode" (F8 during boot).
This will fix any driver or some operating system issue during previous failed boot process.
Once it boots completely, do a normal shutdown and reboot your laptop in standard mode (no more F8 this time).
Now your laptop will be ready to use.

Motherboard. Your best bet is to purchase another computer. If you can however get the motherboard at a cheap price, then go ahead and change it. I would check ebay first.

Battery Charge light flashing 4 red one green Dell Inspiron 9200

usually, its an indication that the battery is nearing the end of its useful life. you can try to use another battery to isolate it further. If the same thing happens with another battery, chances are, the mobo is failing. Flashing the BIOS can usually help with battery issues. If another battery works fine and your computer is within its first year since you bought it, you can request a replacement battery from Dell

Flashing red light

It is an indication that the battery is beginning to fail. Portable system batteries have a useful life of approximately 300 to 500 recharge cycles on average. (Some last longer, some shorter)

If the battery is over a year old, then the warranty on the battery is expired. You'll need to purchase an new battery

Computer won't turn on.....

Try taking the battery out and leaving the laptop sit then put it back in and try turning it on, if this fails take the battery out and leave sit replace and plug it it and try powering it up then repeat all but leave the battery out.

It may also be a loose connection within the laptop, if it feel or something may of shorted, in desktops reseting the cmos or jumping the computer can help start a dead machine

let me know how you get on (i dont have any faith in the system it worked once out of 1000 for me)

Laptop won't keep Power

It sounds like Dell support may have been right when they told you the motherboard had failed.
