Compaq pressario r3000

My laptopr wont start up (no windows / screen doesnt come alive). I have tried holding down the power button for 5 secs and the release. Power button lights up but doest get the engine rolling. The origin of the problem may be that a few days ago I had a message on windows start up that it needed to "checkdisk" (through 3 stages), the laptop then worked. I did a disk clean up and all ok. I then did a defrag and the dr defraf analysis said there were a few errors and then during defrag the screen went blank. I now have a computer I try to start up and the screen will only come alive about 1 in 50 times. I'm concerned that my power on- off is having an impact. please help

try the ff steps in order

- unplug ac adapter
- remove battery
- hold down power button for 10 secs without any power source
- this is called power drain or power cycle
- plugged in ac adapter /charge & try turning it on

if it turns on now, u can re-attach the battery
- if it doesnt turn on still, call HP for support, you might need to send it in for repairs

Compaq Presario R3000. Push power button and lights come on then goes dead before booting. Occassionally Windows will start booting the it goes dead. Any suggestions?


Either the power supply is putting out too low voltage or the power jack is bad.Try moving the ac adapter tip around while its starting up to see if it keeps it running or shuts it off.If it makes no difference try another ac adapter that does work for sure and see if thats the problem.If neither approach works,then the HDD may be seizing or one of the ram sticks may be bad.Some sort of hardware conflict can cause shut downs.You would have to take the bootstrap approach to narrow it down to one pacific component.

Compaq Presario R3000 dim screen but not dark


Sounds like the auto-dim in the BIOS is set too low. Fortunately the Compaq R3000 allows you to adjust the brightness right from the keyboard. Hold down the [FN] function key while tapping the [F8] key will brighten the screen, while [FN]-[F7] will dim it. The settings are different for running on AC power and battery, so you must do each individually.

Start up problems


it fails to boot-? does it just sit there, or does it reboot continuously? Do you have the os cd for it- you might need it to do a recovery mode and run chkdsk /r that might fix the file error
