No power in compaq presario R4000

The computer was on earlier today, music playing from an internet radio station. Suddenly...boom! Now, there's no power whatsoever. When I press the power button, the 'lightning bolt' at the front of the keyboard flashes, but that's it (??) Otherwise, everything's dead.

    I turned the computer off after using it and the next day when I went to use it, it wouldn't turn on. When I press the power button the lighting light flashes.

I've had this problem as well. Check your power cable...try restarting your computer without the power cable in it. Hope this helps!

It happened to me once while reloading winXP after a disk replacement. since it was on my lap, my first thought was it over heated. it took more than a week to revive. thought it was permanent and took it down to the local repair shop. pretty embarrasing when it powered up just fine.
1. don't let it overheat by covering intake vents on bottom
2. don't give up that it will eventually revive

Dvd driver does not play or burn blank dvds compaq r4000 but it will play dvds & cd its got dvdrw/r rw dvd+r dl n the driver


Try another DVD-RW drive because it sounds like the laser is going bad. Burning requires alot of power from the laser. Playing DVD or playing cd's doesn't require much so thats why it would play those.

HP Compaq Presario R4000 (PN495AV) PC Notebook How


Yes, go to Start>Control panel>Power Options. There also should be a screen brightness key on your key board, that looks like a sun shining, with arrows pointing up & down. To use that key, hit the FN key, right next to the Ctrl key. Push & hold the FN key, while pushing the up arrow. That should increase the brightness of your display. Good luck.

KEYBOARD DRIVER FOR COMPAQ R4000


There is no driver from Compaq because it just uses a standard driver from the operating system.

Try removing the keyboard from the device manager.

Then restarting the computer.
