Take out the battery and only hook up the AC Adapter to see if the laptop turns on. If it does then you know the battery is shorting out the laptop and either has very little power to turn on the laptop or is shorting out the laptop cause its bad.
If you don't get the laptop to turn on, make sure your using a well known working wall outlet to plug the laptop to and only use the AC Adapter. If you AC Adapter is hooked up and the Green Led turns on then you know the adapter is good.
After those two steps, you can also try taking out the dvd drive and the hard drive. Then try turning on the laptop and if the laptop still doesn't turn on then the motherboard is bad in the laptop.
Some laptops will not power up with a completely discharged or faulty battery. Remove the battery from the laptop, plug in the power cord and try to boot the system. If the system boots, your battery needs to be replaced. Replace your battery as soon as you can, it's not a good idea to run the laptop for extended periods with an open battery bay.
start wit ha power reset, remove the battery, remove the ac adapter, hold the power button for 1 minute and then repalce the battery and ac adapter, if theres no go try it with just the ac adapter, sometimes the batteries short out. if all else fails its probably the mmobo and i suggest calling compaq for warranty support
Hve u tried a differnt adaptor , the adaptor might be blown too ,try replacing the adaptor , also check for the power cord if it has any kinks in it which may be interrupting the power supply , since the adaptor 18.5 v 3.5 a is the most common of all hp adaptors u should find one to try .
HELLO,PRESS AND HOLD THE POWER ON BUTTON FOR A FEW SECONDS UNTIL YOU GET A POWER LIGHT.ONCE YOU GET THE LIGHT,THE LAPTOP SHOULD BOOT UP NORMALLY.IF THAT DOESNT WORK,REMOVE THE BATTERY AND TRY TO POWER UP WITH JUST THE AC ADAPTER PLUGGED IN.ONCE YOU GET BOOTED,INSTALL THE BROADCOM WIRELESS CARD SOFTWARE FIRST FROM THE CD THAT CAME WITH THE ADAPTER.THE SET-UP WILL THEN ASK YOU TO INSTALL THE CARD AFTER THE DRIVERS HAVE BEEN LOADED.YOU SHOULD BE ABLE TO GET ONLINE ONCE ALL THE STEPS HAVE BEEN COMPLETED.GOOD LUCK
i'd say first try a known working ac adapter and if that Working AC adapter works and the system detects the battery well, then it could be the ac. If not then try to borrow a working battery to get your final conclusion. if the working battery still doesnt work properly, then it could be the system motherboard. If battery and ac adapter (working) are not available, then check the BIOS and see if it really doesnt detect the battery. try flashing the BIOS and still if that fails, then replace the battery.
Your battery is dead. You need to get a new power adapter. The battery isn't charging. The AC adapter went south. If the laptop is under warranty, you can get one from Compaq. Or, what I would do is shop on the internet and order one. Whats the numbers on the ac adapter? I'll help you find one.
