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.

Hi my acer lap top is in safe mode and wont start if i buy a fix it cd will this work thanks alicia


Since you can boot in safe mode, teh you should try using the SYSTEM RESTORE to take it back to the day the problem started, try that first.
For example of XP: http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/using/helpandsupport/learnmore/systemrestore.mspx

Few days ago i swiched off my lap top and pul


Are you talking of the BIOS password? Well, turn the laptop upside down and unscrew the plates. Under one of then you will find a button cell about 1 inch in diameter. remove it and reinsert it after five minutes. Your BIOS password will be erased.
If you are talking of the Windows password then you will have to reinstall Windows unless you know thw administrator's password. If you do, then delete this user and recreate it after a reboot. If no, then you must reinstall Window in a directory other than \Windows. For more info read the link

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.
