Computer will not turn on

I have a compaq nx9500 laptop, it will not turn on with the battery in it. When I plug the power supply into it and turn it on, the power and other auxillary lights light up, and shut right back off. Could this be a processor problem or a motherbord problem?

Pull out the battery and replace it again. Then power it on again. If the problem persists, you will need to have the motherboard, processor and RAM checked by appropriate technical personnel. Any of these could be responsible.

I have a 2008 Compaq with Microsoft Vista and when I powered it off and tried to turn it on a couple of day's later it would not power back on. What can I do to fix this problem.

Nine times out of ten this problem is caused due to your power supply going out. So what you need to do is go out and buy a new power supply for your computer. However if it is a laptop then either your battery is going out or your power cord is going out and not charging the battery.

HP Laptop Compaq NX9500. Problems with motherboard. Found there is classaction suit but this serial number is just outside those that are covered. HP no longer makes replacement parts and refuses to...

Check with any local computer repair shops, they may have another compaq nx9500 laying around that they could swap the motherboards with. Some may even offer to do a free diagnostic.

I also found this ebay auction which offers motherboard repair (don't worry, it's not mine):

If all else fails, you can sell the parts off piecemeal (memory, hard drive, cd/dvd drive, etc.) on ebay and try to get more than $200.

Might be stuck in hibernation. Pull the battery and ac power for about 1 hour. Replace and try to boot. If fails, pull the battery and try to boot just off ac power.

I just replaced the battery and power cord on my Compaq Presario 900 US Laptop, I plug in the power cord, the green light comes on, but the battery light just flashes, and I can't turn the computer on. ...

Try laptop without battery first to see if powers on. Could be memory issue of battery as might have been off for a while. Place battery back in if starts up. Then see if charging up and if computer switches on or off.
If fails again, unplug power and battery and open underneath the where the memory is located and try to unplug memory and plug back in. Try power supply then. If works, great! If not, you will have to take into a service center to check inside if motherboard or battery need replacing.
