    I checked for power at the plug that goes into the back of the computer - got 18.7V, which I think is correct. Tried with and without the batter - no success. I will look into the computer later, but will probably just move my saved files on to another machine and trash the old.
    Thanks for your help Dion

Hi Dion, with no lights and no power there isn't many options. Check your AC Adapter and make sure you are getting a light on it. You can do this just by plugging in the AC Adapter itself.

Once you verify this then take out the battery from the laptop and only plug in the AC Adapter. If you still don't get power, hold in the power button for 30 seconds to reset the laptop.

Also try a regular working wall outlet, if that doesn't do it then you need to take out the hard drive and the dvd drive from the laptop. Then try turning it on, if you still don't get power, then that means the motherboard is bad and would need to be replaced. You could also try taking out the memory to make sure a stick of it is not shorting out the motherboard.

Compaq Presario 5000 won't turn on


hi,
The machine is getting the power but no display.This seems a RAM or motherboard issue.
1.Press and release NUM Lock after turning on and if it is responding this is a RAM issue and if not then the mainboard issue but before all refix the RAM once.
Thank You.

Only shows compaq on screen


I work with Compaq computers now and usually your problem points to the hard drive. I know Compaq's will stay on that screen if the hard drive has failed. Try another hard drive would be my suggestion.

Hope this helps.

Power


I hope trouble with your motherboard as far as your power supply is new and giving the accurate voltage.

The motherboard is controlling the switching device. Some short circut may be happening
