Question about Compaq Presario Notebook

I can't turn on my Compaq f500

My Compaq f500 that I've had for one year won't start. Every time I press the "on" button it switches itself off right away. I've often noticed it getting a bit overheated, but now it's completely dead. Has anybody had a similar problem, does anyone have a solution?

    I have had the same problem. I took it to the local pc doctor and he called compaq and was on the phone for 3 hours with them because my warranty expired 1 day before that. finally they told us what to do...still nothing. then the guy from compaq finally said when you press on the power button and it lights up and stays lit but nothing happens press f10 repeadly until it turns on it works but i recommend sending it back to compaq because i still have the problem.

So you don't hear any beeps and it just shuts off?

Most likely a faulty motherboard.
You could test this with a minipci post card
I can't turn on my Compaq f500 - 279b4ae.jpg
These are sold in ebay for quite cheap.

It would direct you to the problem.


But Id say its a motherboard / cpu problem if you don't hear any beeps.

Hi.

Try this >>>>


Power down your Compaq Presario F500 notebook computer. Remove the unit's internal battery from its housing compartment.
Use a screwdriver to unscrew and remove all of the screws from the bottom panel of your Compaq Presario F500. Use your hands to lift off the bottom panel, revealing the inside of the notebook computer.
Look for the CMOS/BIOS chip: It will be located in the center of your computer's motherboard, which is itself located in the center of the case.
Remove the small battery from its housing compartment on the CMOS/BIOS chip. Then, press and hold the "Power" button on the laptop's case for a few seconds. This will completely discharge all electricity from the device.
Replace the CMOS/BIOS' battery. Place the bottom panel of the notebook computer back on and screw it back into place. Place the Compaq Presario F500's battery back into its housing compartment and press the "Power" button to turn it on. Your CMOS/BIOS will now be completely reset.
Good luck and please let me know how you get on!!!!



Regards.

Garmin forerunner 205 will not stay OFF and none of the buttons respond.


Yes you can restore your data from the TC after a hard reset. You have to go thtrough the setup menu like chose which language etc first.
Well I have exactly the same problem as you and a hard reset did not work either ...
Upgrading / downgrading the firmware also did not work.... the thing keeps on switching itself on regardless....
Do you have found out something more in the mean time?

I have a Compaq Presario F500 When I press the power button all the lights light up for a few seconds then it shuts back off


remove the battery then try to plug the charger directly on your laptop without a battery.. to test if the battery is working properly. if not.. maybe your main board have a problem. just like athe compaq presario of my friend. also mainboard problem.

Pls help to me.my compaq F700 laptop cant on.when i press on switch hearing one beep sound only.not bootable. How i solve the problem.


Hearing exactly ONE beep is "good" -- it signifies that the hardware is working correctly.

So, either the disk-drive itself is the problem,
or the installed copy of Windows has been corrupted, such that Windows cannot start/complete the boot-process.

I have a compaq presario laptop. I am told I can turn on the wireless capability by using a switch or a function key combination. I have no switch; please whaty function key combination should I use?


A presario that I have has a button on the right side front that is recessed and round. You did not list the model you have and there are MANY models. Mine is an R3000 series.

The button is similar to those on the side for the audio control.
