Compaq Presario 900 Series PP2140 Power Up

My wife has Coppaq Presario 900 (Series PP2140). For a couple of months it sometimes refuses to power up with the power button.

She has been unplugging both the AC adapter and the battery for a minute, plugging them back and powering up. This procedure did not help today.

What is the cause? I can fix almost anything electronic but I have to know what the problem is and where to look.

Thanks in advance.

I think you sould check your batteru first.

  • Remove your battery from lap.
  • Add power card to lap.
  • Make on without battery.
  • If it works, then you need to replace the battery or you can chek your lap with another battery, if it fixe your problem. Then you should replace the battery.

Thanks and Good Luck

Can this HP Pavilion DV9000 laptop adapter fit for Compaq Presario V3000 laptop? I doult that HP Pavilion DV9000 laptop adapter on website:http://www.laptopbatteryshop.ca/hp-pavilion-dv9000-ac-adapter.htm...


Have a look at the label on the bottom of the V3000 laptop and check the voltage and amps power rating of the laptop.
If the DV9000 adapter has the same voltage and current rating (amps) or higher amp rating then it is suitable for the V3000 laptop, provided the power plug fits the V3000 power socket.

Does my Compaq series pp2140 have built in wifi?


go to compaq.com support they'll ask for your model number operating system xp or vista or windows 7. If its xp they have the driver download available all though I doubt if you need it unless you just installed the xp os. To answer your question yes it does if its ap 2140 there is no pp2140 that i saw.

Compaq Presario 700 Laptop..... Push the power button. It makes a couple little clicking sounds like normal and the power light comes on, but nothing else. No fans, nothing. I had this computer for a few...


I have run into this with lots of laptops. Sometimes its something simple like bad connections. Sometimes its the board. If you want to try to diagnose it yourself try the instructions here:

Theres no magic fix for this model that I know of. If you do get it started again, try to do a bios update from Compaq for that model. Sometimes there are BIOS updates that fix this kind of issue but the computer has to run in order to install the update.

Hope this helps...

No power


start wit ha power reset, remove the battery, remove the ac adapter, hold the power button for 1 minute and then repalce the battery and ac adapter, if theres no go try it with just the ac adapter, sometimes the batteries short out. if all else fails its probably the mmobo and i suggest calling compaq for warranty support

Compaq F700 Battery live very less


Giri,
Its normal, generally it comes with 80-90 min. You can use HP Power management to optimize the use of battery. Making screen less bright will increase the power backup.

Thanks

Compaq Presario v2000 Notebook problem


Hi, Take out the battery and plug in only the power adapter and see if it comes on. If it does then leave out the battery for about 15 minutes and then put it back in. Good luck!
