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?

    Can't get that far. Won't boot or power other than the start-up LEDs.



    You think I should check the battery? That could keep it from booting?



    The AC Adapter is good. I have three! All within spec... Now the plug on the MB is a bit suspect.. I found a used MB and ordered yesterday. Hate to go that extreme, but may have to. I'll pull the battery and see what that shows. Thanks. Any other ideas?

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!

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.

Power LED on but no boot up


it could be your power switch, veriy that it isnt the power supply by

1.) un-plug it from the main board
2.) look at the main board connector(one coming of the power supply)
3.) you should see green wire and next to it a black one
4.) using a paper clip bridge the too wires
5.) if it works proceed to net step if not get a new power supply

to check case switch and board switch

1.) plug in power supply to main board
2.) look at the pins where the power button connects to
3.) using a metal object (blade screw driver) bridge the pins

if the board should start up>
then its your power button on the case that is bad, you can try to repair it, chage it or buy a new case,

if it doesnt work.
1.) ensure that jcms(jumper to flash the bios) is set correctly
2.) unjack each drive one at a time to see if any is causing stalling
3.) get a new main board

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.
