Sounds like a ram chip, they can be found on the bottom under the ram access door.

Sometimes one of the ram chips are under the keyboard.

Compaq presario v6101uswont boot not even start up screen


When you plug in the power cord is there any lightswhatsoever on the laptop, where the plug goes in or on the AC Adapter of thepower cord?

When you press the power button do you hear fans running, hard drive spinning,lights on the computer, hear any beeps or lights constantly blinking, hear theDvD/CD drive click and the light on the drawer of the DvD/CD turn on for asecond or two? If so the laptop is trying to boot or may have booted, butthe screen is not showing for some reason.

Beep tones and blinking lights tells the technicians what is going on with thelaptop and why it is not booting. Most times it's a motherboard issuewhen you hear beeps or blinking lights continuous.


Maybe you have a Static Charge Buildup. Remove the Power Cord, Remove theBattery, then Press and Hold the power button for 30seconds. After 30 seconds plug the power cord back in (leave the batteryout) and hit the power button to see if it boots. If it does, you can putthe battery back in and let it charge.

OK download that service manual, follow the troubleshooting procedures and you will sort your problem out in now time, i have a hunch, that your HDD, is faulty... and may need replacement. Anyway Download and use that manual, it's a generic one.. but will still work for you.
