Evo N410c- Won't boot

When power plugged in, LED's will illuminate after 3-5 seconds, but no fan or HD startup. If you hit the power button, the lites will immediately turn off. There is a slight speaker pop at this point. After a few seconds, the LED's will come back on. I have tested w/ three different PS. Same results.

Checked the HD, it's fine. This happened several months back, and it started working after I opened it up. No idea what caused to it to work. Then failed as quickly.

Where do I start?

How can I change boot sequence in Compaq Evo N410c?

You need to access your BIOS configuration. 1. To do this, shutdown your computer and boot it by pressing the power button. 2. You need to hit F10 when the computer first powers up in order to get into BIOS (Note that the key is usually different for different computers. If F10 doesnt work, try F2, F12, Delete or F9. 3. Once in the BIOS, you should find the boot sequence option.
Hope this helps!

Basically i plugged in the ac adapter to it, pressed the power button and the power light comes on for 2-3 seconds then the power light shuts off. lcd screen never turned on or show anything, fan never...

The middle blue led is the charging indicator, sounds like you have (at least) a bad battery, remove it, plug in AC and try again, if no good, remove the HD and repeat, if no good, remove/replace the ram and repeat, if still no good, your mainboard is cooked.

Will not Power Up. I hit the Power button, green LED lights up for about 3 seconds (cooling fans start), but then shuts down. The battery is 3 months old, and the Power Supply is working.

Remove the battery and the power adapter. Now just plug in the power adapter and boot the laptop. Will it boot and remain on? If so then the battery is faulty. If not try a different power adapter, the worst case is that the system has failed. -Ravi Shanghavi

Laptop will not boot

ok, take the battery out and leave it unplugged for a few hours.  Only plug the ac adapter in after.  Press and hold the power button for 10 seconds.  Does it still do it?  If it does work, then chances are your mobo has bit the dust or you have knocked loose an internal charging part.

ACTIVATE Wireless Link????

On some models check to make sure that the actual physical "switch" is turned on (if there is one). Usually located in the front or side of the laptop. Also, make sure your HOLDING the function key while pressing F2, otherwise it won't work. Hope this helps!

Compaq Evo N410c- Will not start up

The only thing you can do is to check to see if the installed memory is making contact. To do that, open up the access panel, unclip the memory and then reinstall it. If that doesn't fix it, you're into a trip to the shop.
