Hmmm..sounds like an internal issue, if it's happening on either channel..can you boot up in safe mode(F8) and maybe run a virus scan?

I have a compaq presario CQ61 it was working last night. When I turned it on just now I have a black screen but do have lights blinking on the key board by the caps lock and upper right.


Hi,

This is a notebook not a desktop computer.

Try this and let me know if it works.

Remove the AC power cord and the battery. Hold down the power button for 30 seconds to dispel any residual power from the laptop.
Then just plug in the AC power (leave the battery out) and try to boot the laptop up.

If it boots up let it load the operating system and then shut it down. Reinsert the battery and see if it will boot up.



Good luck.

Battery and/or overheating or ?


It is possible that the battery is not charging at all and can't pass electricity to the board. But if its 3yo, its probably really dead.

Also, if you can see a fan not working at all, overheating is also possible.

It is also possible that there is a tiny foreign object capable of conducting electricity, such as human hair, that gets activated at the slightest movement of the laptop by shorting some pins on your board.

So I would suggest to observe more or clean the inside of your laptop if you know how to remove your keyboard.

Compaq nx6320 won't power up


Replace your battery Some laptops don't boot up when no battery is present even it is connected directly on the power supply. Or if not to visit your nearest HP service center. If its still with warranty, use it.

Good luck kabayan. ^_~

Fujitsu Seimens Laptop V2030. I have removed the 2030 disk shaped cmos back up battery placed under sticky tape and replaced with new. The computer will now not boot up. I have power to the fan but no...


changing this shouldn't cause or harm it at all. except if you change it the wrong way it could burn the bios chip's internal blocks.

1. remove the battery, + big battery + ac charger
and wait 15 minutes, then boot.

2. try booting without the cmos battery

3. try swapping the memory

why did u change it in the first place?

Sounds like the internal power supply has packed up. If the laptop AC suply does not show a light or warm up after say 15 mins then it could still be a faulty adapter. If however it does warm up or the light shows on, then it is almost certainly the internal power supply and unless under warranty is a £150+ job unless you want to try yourself. One final thought. Have you tried removing the battery and putting the AC adapter on just in case there is a short on the battery?

Besides checking and cleaning the battery and charger terminals. Boot up and go into bios. Look at the status of the battery in bios and there is a calibrate function. Follow directions and calibrate each battery. If the battery is bad (wore out) pitch it. the new battery should be ok durring calibration.

On laptops it is highly recommended that U do not leave the power cord plugged in for very long periods of time. A laptop should be turned off when not in use and run on battery to keep the operating circuits (along with battery live) functional. In this case change is good. Always provide good ventilation. It's called a laptop, but that is the worst place to use it. flat solid surface with lots of airflow.

Ur power supply may already be damaged from adverse use as described above. If the calibration does not correct the problem, repair shop time. Over heating can shorten the life of the processor also.
Good Luck

I cannot switch on my Acer travelmate 283XC. The battery went flat and I have now plugged it in the wall but when I press the power button nothing happens...


Try this; Disconnect from the AC outlet rmove the dc plug from the jack. Remove the Battery and wait for 5 mins and plug in the AC? DC adaptor without the battery. If the Laptop runs, then wait for the Windows to totally boot up and while running try to put back the battery and observe if it still charges. If not then try to replace the battery with a new one.


hope this helps.

Battery Problems


We are talking about the battery right? So here is what you can try. You only have to "Hit" your battery on a flat surface. The amount of impact you enorfce on it is up to you. The idea of "hammering" the battery like this is simple: It re-alligns the cell structure inside the battery; has something to do with the charge alignment in the battery.

So take the battery in your hand, and "hit" it on a table or any flat surface (make sure you dont break it). Speed and force similiar when there's a fly on the table and you want to take it "down" with your hand. Hit it 3 to four times. Then Put the battery into the LT again, with AC power and charge.

when the charging is done, disable all your power saving options so that your LT would run without going into hibernation, sleep mode, or power saving mode; Disconnect the AC and let it Run until its "Dead", that means the battery is drained totally. Now close your Laptop, hook up the AC again and let it charge approx. 6-20 hrs depedning on your battery standard charging rates.

After this, your battery SHOULD work fine again. If not, the battery was just faulty meaning it needs a replacement.
