Laptop won't stay on

My compaq presario R3000 is ~ 4 years old. It will boot up and stay for 1 or 2 minutes only. Even though it shows that power is coming, battery is not charging. I purchased a new battery, but did not work. Any suggestions.

It might as well be a internal problem related to power or loose contacts with RAM or the power chords internally.
Better to go to the technician in this case.
Your first Battery would have been fine too..

    may be you can just enquire the technician.

    And if its something around a $100 work in total, you do something to this to keep running. more than that it would be better not to do it! :)

HP Compaq Presario CQ60 Won't Charge


Three blinks in a row is the LED code for a memory issue.

Turn the laptop over, remove the panel over the RAM, remove the DIMMs (it will likely have 2 in it), place one in at a time and try powering the system on.


One of the two is likely bad although it is possible (although very unlikely) that both are bad. It should boot up when the good DIMM is in place. Once you have identified the bad one, buy a replacement or possible choose to upgrade the total amount of RAM.

Compaq Presario V5000 does not come on


The solution to your problem lies in one of the following three areas:

1.) Your charger is faulty and is therefore not able to pass power to your laptops battery.

2.) The charging connector on the laptop has come loose from the contacts. Therefore a bad connection.

3.) Your battery is faulty.

I think possibility 2 is the most likely, although you will have to test possibility 3 by removing the battery and plugging in your charger and seeing if the laptop powers on.If it does power on then that rules out possibility 1 and 2 leaving a faulty battery.

MY cOMPAQ pRESARIO CQ60 fell and cant complete boot


Most likely in this case, the damage is to the hard drive or its connection to the motherboard. The CQ series though has a three point screw attachment for the hard drive so Im more inclined to think that the shock of the landing has damaged the read/write head on the hard drive. If you happen to have another hard drive for a laptop, try installing a new drive and run the installation disc and see if it will complete and boot completely....if it will then the problem was the old drive.

Computer had a replacement cord purchased and battery purchased from Compacq (HP) last year. Problem Number One: Cord will not stay plugged into back of computer. Keeps falling out of slot. Problem Number...


Try to get in long enough to check for Battery drivers in your system devices,they may need to be reinstalled,as your computer keeps crashing,this may corrupt them.Also try running your laptop with 1 Ram card at a time,you will find the cards located on the bottom of the laptop..just take the screw out till the door opens and leave 1 Ram card in,see if the laptop still acts up....if it does,take that Ram out and try the other one by itself.You may have to get a new plug and solder it in or you can just hold the power plug in with a peice of black electrical tape.Please let me know how you make out :)

Compaq Presario V2000 will not boot.


Remove the battery and just leave it off the computer, then plug in the power cord and try it. If it works with no battery...the battery is completely dead and you need to replace.

Computer not connecting to internet


You can unplug power from the Modem, Router, and shut down the laptop. Then restore power to the Modem then the router and boot up the laptop and try to connect to the internet again. Sometimes flushing the DNS will correct the web page error.

BSoD, Garbled Screen, Boot Failure.


If you are getting garbage on the screen before windows tries to load the laptop probably has a bad motherboard.

It's possibly only the video output is going bad on it, try hooking it to an external monitor and see if you get the same weird stuff on that screen.

Good luck, let me know how it goes

Laptop shuts off when unplugged, battery is fully charged


Chosenone, Even though the battery meter shows it fully charged I doubt it?s correct. Over time rechargeable batteries loose their ability to store power. How long depends on the battery manufacturer and how well you treat it but you can consider yourself fortunate if your battery lasts three or four years. Beware of people who suggest you take apart your batter to bypass the safeties or replace old battery cells. Defective or improperly handled batteries can overheat and cause fires when you least expect them. Let us know if you have any more questions and please don?t forget to rate this post.
