Compaq N410c laptop power-on problem

I accidentally removed the docking station from the laptop while the laptop was on, and the laptop shut-off. When I try booting, the battery light blinks, but no luck. The AC adapter and Battery, both were replaced recently, and the laptop was working great, with Windows 2000 on it.
Is this a minor problem (like a weak solder/ short-circuit) or do you suspect a major problem (related to motherboard/HDD etc)? What do you recommend?

How can i update dell dock?

A docking station is an extension or addition of ports for a laptop computer. Once the portable computer is docked, you can access the docking station's ports, such as PS/2 or USB 2.0 ports, through your computer. Some docking stations have monitors that you can connect your computer to, placing your video on an external screen so you can turn off your computer's monitor and conserve some of your computer's energy. All Dell docking stations will have the same general troubleshooting steps.

Plug your laptop's power adapter into the docking station and dock your laptop onto/into the docking station. If there is no power going to your laptop from the docking station but it works when the power adapter is plugged into the wall, the docking station is bad and needs to be replaced. Plug your power adapter into the docking station and dock your laptop onto/into the docking station. If power goes on but your computer doesn't recognizes accessories such as a USB mouse--plugged into the docking station, try a different port on the station. If it works in a different port, the previous USB port is burned out. Plug your power adapter into the docking station and dock your laptop onto/into the docking station. If power is going through the docking station but no accessories are being recognized, you might have a corrupted docking profile. Undock the computer and dock it again once it has fully started up to reset the docking profile. Plug your power adapter into the docking station and dock your laptop onto/into the docking station. If you have an external monitor and it is not working, completely close the lid on the laptop so the image will move to the external monitor. Plug your power adapter into the docking station and dock your laptop onto/into the docking station. If power is going through the docking station but no accessories are being recognized and resetting the docking profile fails, update all drivers through Dell's support website and then re-dock the computer. Some of the software that runs the hardware may have become corrupted. Hope this helps

Dc jack is not working, can I still use a docking

I have seen this problem with many laptops.
What has happened is that the power connector on the laptop has loose solder connections and will not trasfer the power through the jack. Either the jack needs to be resoldered on the motherboard or replaced. This is a very intense repair, because the motherboard has to be removed for the repair.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue.
If you need further assistance please comment to this post and I will try to help you further.
Thanks for using FixYa

I found my compaq evo n410c notebook after ages but now when i swtich it on it asks for a power-on password but i have no clue what it is

this varies from laptop to laptop, on some laptops you can remove the bios password by removing the 3 volt memory battery inside, some laptops may have a switch inside to remove the password.

In most cases you will have to take the laptop apart to get rid of the password.

if you enter the password wrong 3 times you may get a system disabled xxxxx number message, a hp service center will be able to unlock the laptop for you.

Removing laptop from docking station

If you have the ArmadaStation EM:

The issue of removing the notebook is compounded by the fact that the ArmadaStation EM uses a motorized dock/undock mechanism to remove the notebook. When the expansion base has no power, it is unable to eject the notebook with the motor
 To manually remove the notebook, use manual eject lever to push notebook out of ArmadaStation EM. The manual eject level is a small white lever located inside the back cover of the base. To remove the notebook, push the white lever to the left. Slight pulling is required to remove the notebook completely out of the base.

Hope this helps!
