Question about Compaq Presario S6300NX PC Desktop

Presario 6350CA won't boot

When I power on it starts then stops (nothing on screen) then after 2 seconds powers up, still nothing on screen. All fans are working, drive lights but nothing on screen. The keyboard power light flashes and main power light is on, otherwise it is dead. The hard drive works fine on another PC.

I presume the flashing ketboard light is telling me something but I don't know what and can't find Presario tech support at HP websites.

Any advice on what to try next? Thanks.

    Great - thanks. HP support showed how to fix the problem - it's with the add-in video card. Switching to the onboard video using no screen display and resetting the video defaults worked.

    Just need a new video card now - lucky it is under warranty!

I don't know that I'm going to be a great deal of help, but here is the link to the support site for you Presario:

Here's a link to another page on the Compaq site that specifically talks about power supply problems:

They discuss a flashing power led on this site, but I believe they are referring to an led on the power supply itself. Perhaps the led on the keyboard and the led on the power supply are both flashing...

Good luck. I hope this helps.

Computer won't do anything, keyboard does not light up, screen is blank

So there is not so much as a BIOS message on screen? Any beeps?
If there is no life at all, you have a CPU/motherboard failure. This may be direct or indirect (e.g. no power to MoBo). Check your connections.
Otherwise, your boot device may not be operating. This is usually a dead or disconnected HDD. Check that it is plugged in. Does it get warm? Can you feel any vibrations from it? It should spin even if your cpu is dead but MoBo is alive.

Compaq presario v6101uswont boot not even start up screen

When you plug in the power cord is there any lightswhatsoever on the laptop, where the plug goes in or on the AC Adapter of thepower cord?

When you press the power button do you hear fans running, hard drive spinning,lights on the computer, hear any beeps or lights constantly blinking, hear theDvD/CD drive click and the light on the drawer of the DvD/CD turn on for asecond or two? If so the laptop is trying to boot or may have booted, butthe screen is not showing for some reason.

Beep tones and blinking lights tells the technicians what is going on with thelaptop and why it is not booting. Most times it's a motherboard issuewhen you hear beeps or blinking lights continuous.

Maybe you have a Static Charge Buildup. Remove the Power Cord, Remove theBattery, then Press and Hold the power button for 30seconds. After 30 seconds plug the power cord back in (leave the batteryout) and hit the power button to see if it boots. If it does, you can putthe battery back in and let it charge.

Power On, Fans start but stop in few seconds and that's all

May be there is a problem in the windows, but suppose it is not booting at all.

First Check once more your boot options from bios menu
Second If it still the same thing, extract your battery out of your laptop for 12 min, then try to power up your laptop pluging in your power cable(don't use your battery)
Third If it still not working, there must be a problem in your cooling fan, so check it, also check your motherboard & your graphics card (Most of this problems happens due to a problem in the computer cooling system in motherboard & graphics card)

Hope it works for you Christos

Compaq presario starts but will not boot up

Check whether your CPU fan is working. It could be due to Fan malfunction of the cabinet also. Seek technician's help, if not resolved

Can't reboot Compaq/Presario desktop, (power supply is working)

If the system recovery disk doesn't work it usually mans that the hard drive is bad. I would change the hard drive and use the system recovery disk on it after replacement.
