Question about Compaq Computers & Internet
This laptop was working but freezing. Not when the power button is pushed, the power light comes on for about 10 seconds and then computer shuts down. Was running Windows Vista. If nothing else, need to pull a ton of important files off the HD. ANY help is most appreciated!
First thing i would try is to unplug the powercord from the surge proetctor and from the computer. turn the computer over and take out the battery.
with the battery out, press on the power button for 30 seconds.
now put the battery back in and plug in the computer and try booting it.
sometimes static electricity builds up inside the computer and this will dissipate it.

I have the exact same machine with the same problem. Time for a new mother board. Never by CompaQ / HP.
