Question about Compaq Presario 700 470024-192 Notebook

The lap top wont start

I bought this computer from a european market a few years ago, now I

want to use it in the states. I bought a step up converter to compensate for

the voltage difference but the computer wont start. I see the orange light

blinking and assume the battery is charging, for 24hrs I waited and the

computer still would not start. I want to ask is if this a battery problem.

The solution to your problem is probably not the monitor, follow these steps:
1. Connect and boot your computer with 2 different monitors.
2. If it does'nt work with either of them the problem is from another computer component.
Posible Problems:
1. Your video card may be damaged or moved from it's slot.
2. Your proccessor may be damaged.
Posible solutions:
1. If you have computer hardware knowledge open the case
2. Remove the Video card.
3. Insert it back or insert another video card from a friend.(if it works with your friends card, obviously the video card is the problem)
4. Restart your computer and see if it works.
Now if it does'nt work after that you will have to replace your proccessor with one that works, from a friend, because you say your computer boots but if your monitor doesn't work you don't know for sure if it boots corectly.
The steps above are only for people with hardware knowledge, if that is not your case you should contact a computer service.

Good Luck

I dont think the converter is the issue. I belive that the power adaptor port in back may be bad. might want to get taht check into. do you find that its a bit lose in the back. the blinking lights means its trying but there no juice. its not going to charge beacuse its not making a solid connectino.

It sounds like, somehow, an antivirus or firewall app is blocking access to those sites. I'd check there, first. Then, if no help, you may have to simply uninstall and reinstall the modem. If you have your manual, reset the modem and follow the steps to install it as if you just bought it. If the modem has a battery, remove it to completely re-set the unit. http://support.actiontec.com/doc_files/GT701R_QW05.5_User_Manual_3.60.3.0.7.6.pdf

Packard bell lap top


Packard Bell only seem to have a european site from what I can tell. If your wife can understand the language, check out the belgium site for W3903 by clicking here and see if you go through the troubleshooter, whether they would be prepared to repair it from a non-european shipping address. If they would not, it's not likely you'll find anyone who deals with it, as Packard Bell seems to be an exclusively european brand.
