Compaq Presario 1245 doesn't start up

I have a Compaq Presario 1245 laptop which doesn't start up. I haven't used it for two years, it was serviced before I put it away.

When I plug in the AC and switch it on a light comes up recognizing the AC pwer but it doesn't start, it makes a noise as if it's booting up but nothing comes up on the screen and it continues making the boot up sounds. I have replaced the Lithium CMOS cell inside hoping that would cure the problem but still the same, nothing has happenedI. Should I get a new battery.

Most laptops have a video connector that you can use to connect you laptop to an external monitor. connect an external monitor to your laptop and see if anythig comes up on the external monitor.Your laptop has a key to switch between it's own screen and the external monitor.When you use the external monitor ,you'll have to use this key to switch to the monitor.Your battery should'nt matter if the laptop is running on AC.Let me know what happens and we'll go from there.

Can it be made connected to wiFi?

Chris Sessions, you could purchase a wireless adapter for it for about $15 pretty much anywhere. Just keep in mind that this laptop does not have a lot of RAM or hard drive space on it.. In other words, if you see that its too slow to search the web you need to do a lot of upgrading on it to work better for you..

Compaq Presario 1245

you could try booting on battery instead of mains and see what happens, also could the screen be switched off ? If you have access to another monitor, you could try plugging it in to see if the video output is ok. ( some laptops have a facility to switch off the screen display for security etc )
