Compaq Presario 900 Series PP2140 Power Up

My wife has Coppaq Presario 900 (Series PP2140). For a couple of months it sometimes refuses to power up with the power button.

She has been unplugging both the AC adapter and the battery for a minute, plugging them back and powering up. This procedure did not help today.

What is the cause? I can fix almost anything electronic but I have to know what the problem is and where to look.

Thanks in advance.

    I have tried everything - the motherboard has a problem. I need to find out which integrated circuit the power switch goes to. Unfortunately, the power switch PCB trace goes on an inner layer and I cannot trace it.



    If I knew, which chip is the power controller, I could replace it.

My presario 900 wont start


Either the motherboard is "dead" or the power-supply is "dead".
It's easiest to FIRST try a different power-supply.

Forgot power on password


Find the original sales-receipt, to prove that you are the owner.
Telephone COMPAQ. Once they verify that you are the rightful owner -- not a thief --- they can override the password.

Compaq Presario 900 Series PP2140 Power Up


I think you sould check your batteru first.
  • Remove your battery from lap.
  • Add power card to lap.
  • Make on without battery.
  • If it works, then you need to replace the battery or you can chek your lap with another battery, if it fixe your problem. Then you should replace the battery.

Thanks and Good Luck
