    I don't think it is the battery. I just recently replaced the battery. On saturday the battery was fully charged. It won't stay powered on long enough to open drive and insert recovery disc. when it shuts off the power button flashes. Does that additional info help.

Sorry to inform you that this is a common problem for Compaq Presario computers.

Overheating and other common problems is the possible cause why your computer won't boot up. Some components are probably toasted as well as a couple FET's (Field Effect Transistors) in the circuit.

You need to send the computer to the manufacturer or to the dealer for free assessment. Replacing the defective components will resolve this problem.

Thank you and good luck!

Does it mean that when you power it ON now it shut down automatically? if it does try plugging the laptop directly to a power outlet because this be related to a battery problem that run out after leaving it ON overnight. So if the laptop work fine when connected to a power outlet so this means that the battery is already bad and may need replacement.

Compaq Presario R3000 dim screen but not dark


Sounds like the auto-dim in the BIOS is set too low. Fortunately the Compaq R3000 allows you to adjust the brightness right from the keyboard. Hold down the [FN] function key while tapping the [F8] key will brighten the screen, while [FN]-[F7] will dim it. The settings are different for running on AC power and battery, so you must do each individually.

Laptop won't stay on


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..
