1. Remove the battery.

2. Check the power supply connector to make sure that the two prongs at the end are on either side of the pin, as you may not have enough power to fire the machine.

Compaq Presario Laptop dead ish.

There are a few reasons/causes of this.
The most common cause is the modem going faulty. Remove the modem and it may come back to life as it can't finish POST.
The Bios has an error, remove the Cmos battery and let the board discharge for 1/4 hour, re fit it and it may POST.
The uProcessor may need re seating and have a bad contact on a pin. Re seat the uProcessor and clean off old heatsink compound installing new.

Maybe as they are the most common I have come across, you may fall into one of them, I hope, otherwise it is a dead motherboard I'm sorry to suggest. Even if the RAM is faulty, it should attempt to POST.

Full format of compaq presario 2100


Most notebooks have a separate partition on the hard drive that holds the recovery media needed to restore the unit.
You can usually run this by pressing F10 during the boot up process. You may need to press it several times in order to get it work.
If that doesn't work, then you will need to contact Compaq in order to order the recovery media kit.

HOW TO GET THE DATA IN A DEAD HARD DISK IN A COMPAQ PRESARIO F557US NOTEBOOK


How dead is the hard drive. will it boot up sometimes or it never boots? Does it make any noises or it runs as normal? If it let's you boot sometime but wont let you use it for long enough to get your data the solution i would try would be any Linux live CD. Download Ubuntu bootable CD and boot from that. Try and access your hard drive then. See what you get. If your hard drive is really dead though there's nothing you can do yourself you need to get it some specialized service where they can recover HD's like this. Good luck

PXE-E61 Media Test Failure Check Cable on compaq presario 2100


A PXE-61 error message is most likely a faulty hard disk.
Try reseating the hard drive first and if you still get this error message again then you need to replace the hard disk.
To boot up with the CD you maybe able to press the F12 function key when you power up the laptop, this will bring up the a menu option to select an alternate boot device. If this option is not available then go into the BIOS configuration and change the bootup order and make the CD as the first boot device and the hard disk as the second device. You can can it back later.
