Question about Compaq Presario CQ60-220US PC Laptop

1 Answer

My Compaq Presario CQ60 just locked up the other day for no reason, and would not allow me to click on anything. When I tried to click on the start button the screen just flashed continuously. Since then it has done this intermittantly and also on a couple of occasions when I have had to take the battery out to switch it off, when I turn it back on there is a very load alarm that goes off. Again I have to take the battery out to stop this - any suggestions what could be causing this?

SOURCE: Compaq Presario CQ60-215DX. Doesn't start

You will need to buy a new battery, there is no way old one will be OK. To see if it works, remove battery, and use wall adapter ONLY, PC should work fine. If not maybe Flat CMOS, replace, If replace and still NO go.must be bad motherboard (maybe try charge battery 5 hours left alone)

Testimonial: "Thanks a lot for the answer! I checked how it works without battery but from wall adapter - same result. Flat CMOS - does it mean flat BIOS battery?"

The laptop really only needs a motherboard and the switch located above your keyboard to turn on, of course powers required, My point being that it is more then likely your motherboard is fried or if theres any visible water damage, the switch above the keyboard works off a ribbon connect which has a pretty slim chance of becoming disconnected but you could check. If your the lucky guy you may just have a faulty charger or the dc input may have failed. Hope this helps

Theres a few websites and youtubes that show the exact teardown of your laptop if you need help taking it apart.

I want to turn on bluetooth device on my compaq presario cq60-410us


@upeskofrens

Upon checking the specifications of this Compaq Presario CQ60-220, it appears that it doesn't have a Bluetooth chip built-in to it. That means that the computer is capable of Bluetooth technology but you need to have a USB Bluetooth Adapter (see image below).

To make sure if you have Bluetooth installed, open the Device Manager (click Start > type Device Manager) and look for Bluetooth. Some computer brands have a Bluetooth sticker at the bottom casing to indicate that the computer has a Blueooth device installed.

If your laptop appears to boot up and the hard disk LEDflashes, then the problem is probably a back light fault. This can be a faultyinverter or a faulty CCFL lamp.
