There are several possible problems that could cause this. Try removing the battery to see if it will work with the power cord plugged in.

If this works, the battery is either defective or extremely low on charge. Try leaving the computer off with the power cord plugged in for several hours. If the problem doesn't improve, you probably need a new battery.

If removing the battery doesn't help, you'll need to find someone who has a voltmeter to check the power adapter.

Looks like your power supply's failed. The green light on the back of your power supply is just a neon light that just confirms that the power lead is OK, it does not relate to the status of the power supply! Try powering it up with another power supply, or replacing the power supply.

Compaq laptop will not boot up


First thing to try is to remove the power cable then remove the battery. Then using just the power cable try to reboot. Second would make sure the brick on you power cord is pushed in all the way and that the green light is on. Third plug it into a different wall outlet. Directly into the wall. Please get back to me if this dosen't work.

I just replaced the battery and power cord on my Compaq Presario 900 US Laptop, I plug in the power cord, the green light comes on, but the battery light just flashes, and I can't turn the computer on. ...


Try laptop without battery first to see if powers on. Could be memory issue of battery as might have been off for a while. Place battery back in if starts up. Then see if charging up and if computer switches on or off.
If fails again, unplug power and battery and open underneath the where the memory is located and try to unplug memory and plug back in. Try power supply then. If works, great! If not, you will have to take into a service center to check inside if motherboard or battery need replacing.

Try this:

AC adapter after both have been removed for 30 seconds and let the laptop set for 30 seconds and then unplug the AC adapter and then slide in the batter within 15 seconds and try to start the laptop.
