Question about Compaq Evo N1020V PC Notebook

2 Answers

My laptop will not turn on

My laptop (evo N1020v) will not turn on. It was working fine, but now won't turn on at all. I'm not sure if it is a charging problem, as when the mains adaptor is plugged in, the light only stays on for a few seconds and then goes off again.

How can I tell if its the ac adaptor or the lap top?

Check if the AC power adapter can operate the notebook when the battery is removed. Do a normal shutdown of the PC. Remove the battery from the Notebook. Connect the power adapter and press the Power button to start the notebook. If the PC does not start and operate normally, the AC adapter is defective and must be replaced. If the PC does start and operate normally, the AC adapter is working properly If the notebook does not start with ac adapter and keeps flashing the lights only then we need to know how many blinks are flashing. Please check the following LED blink codes and the link below to solve the issue with your laptop. First you need to determine how many blinks you are getting when you try to power on the laptop. Check the blinking codes below and reason behind that for HP Compaq laptops Blinking battery power LED Battery Insufficient charge on the battery Blink: 1 - Caps Lock/Num Lock - CPU CPU not functional Blink: 2 - Caps Lock/Num Lock - BIOS BIOS corruption failure Blink: 3 - Caps Lock/Num Lock - Memory Module error not functional Blink: 4 - Caps Lock/Num Lock - Graphics Graphics controller not functional Blink: 5 - Caps Lock/Num Lock - System board General system board failure Blink: 6 - Caps Lock/Num Lock - BIOS BIOS authentication failure Well Check for the below link it will provide you the steps which you need to perform to isolate the cause so that we can determine which hardware of the laptop is causing this issue. http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c01443366&cc=us&lc=en&dlc=en You need to first Remove the memory module (RAM)- Try to power on the laptop ? then again reset it and try to power on. Check whether it is coming on or not. try the same procedure with Hard drive. If laptop is getting power on after removing one of the device then we can be sure that that particular device is faulty and we can change that then? Let me know if you find any difficulties doing this.. I hope this will help you to get it work. Plz vote for me..Dreamkam

Try another AC Adapter with the battery taken out of the laptop. If the light still blinks then that means the motherboard is bad and would need to be replaced.

I have a Compaq Evo N1020v and I tried to reinstall the operating system and now I am getting "Error loading operating system". This is an older computer but it was working fine up to a few days ago....


"tried to" do you mean it finished installation and it was succesful? I doubt that

I think you realy have to do the installation again
the best way is to delete all partitions and format
after.
