    I have exactly the same problem. However, my laptop was infected with Trojan and it was cleaned. My hard disk was damaged and I changed the hard disk. When I was trying to load windows the computer crashed halfway and after that only the orange light comes and remains. While the fan starts and stops after a few seconds. Nothing happens after that. Would appreaciate a solution for this problem.

This series of compaq laptops have an issue with current draw on the mainboard, you will need to send it to compaq for a new mainboard.

Depending on your Bios Version I think later then V44 fixed a bug that would cause your computer no to start if the battery was dead with the V5000. Remove the battery and try booting from just AC power.
I have also had the same issue when my bios battery is loose or dead. The battery can be accessed from the memory area. Once you open it on the left should be memory and on the right will be the wifi card. You don't need to unplug the cables just remove the wifi card and examine the battery. The battery is held by a very very flimsy piece of platic and really easy to break. The best thing I have found is using a little piece of cardboard from a box or something and using it to keep the battery tight, just dont go shaking the laptop alot and it will hold it. It might also be possible your bios battery is dead.
From what I say I would hit power it would power for about 3 seconds the power light would flash then turn off.

Black screen after windows start up. Power is on system boots up windows vista icon appears, and then the screen goes black.


Sorry you are having trouble. Try this: turn unit on. Press F8 to goto safe mode. Goto control panel. Goto System. Goto Device Manager. Look for display adapters. Remove whatever is listed there (write it down first) Reboot to normal mode. What should happen is that windows will detect a display adapter and install it. let me know if you need more info.

Screen goes black after login


boot in safe mode or vga mode by holding f8 on startup. If you can see vga or safe mode the resoution is too high for the card or monitor. Once in via reduced mode uninstall your video driver and reboot. If it tries to add a driver make sure to set the resolution lower. If low resolution doesn't work then you may have a hardware problem.

UNMOUNTABLE______BOOT_____VOLUME ***Stop: 0 X


It could be a problem with the harddrive and memories ,if you enter the DELL bios setup page when the computer starts up does it have an option to test the hard drive if so test it.
Also if you have two memory sticks then try with only one and vice versa.

Try booting with another boot CD like the ultimate boot CD it has some hard drive testing tools too.

Good Luck

Compaq presario v4000 needs to system restore


Reboot the computer > when you see the Compaq name appear, tap the F8 key until you see a black screen with boot choices appear. The first ones on the list are "Safe Mode", what you want is "Safe Mode with Networking", this way just a limited amount of drivers loads including your networking and internet. If you do get booted up, try to get to www.filehippo.com and download "MalwareBytes Malware Remover", install this and do a quick scan and remove anything it finds. You may also try to boot off the windows installation disc and choose the repair option for windows.

Can't boot up laptop


If your Usb port works, then the mobo is working, so possible graphics problem. Try booting up in safe mode(normally pressing F8) on boot up then highlight 'start windows in safe mode', to see if Windows will load with only minimal drivers, if so restart again, pressing F8 again, but this time highlight 'start windows with last known good configuration' Doing any of these 2 things can be done in any order, either last known good config first or safe mode.
