Question about HP Compaq Presario F500 F700 and G6000 Motherboard - 442875-001

1 Answer

I have HP Compaq Presario F500. Without battery or AC it won't do anything - No sound - no screen - silent and black. With battery in I will get a blue power light and orange wireless light - but no sound - no screen - silent and black screen. What is the problem - I'm sitting down - give it to me straight.

  • The Compaq's had faulty graphics video cards made by Nvidia. This is a known issue that you will see documented all over the internet. The guys at fixed mine at a reasonable price $125.00 includes return shipping back to me.

If you do not get an initial power beep you have a hardware problem and there is no way to deterime what the problem is without looking at the unit.

If you do get the first beep then press F2 and see if you can get to the BIOS. If so, I would then suspect a virus has got to it. Wipe-N-Load of the Windows OS usually runs about $75-$150 from a local computer repair company.

    You probably can not make the determination of the cause for failure. Other hardware can casue the MB not to Post . Laptops are very tricky, even to open them up your can damage the plastic parts. Sometimes you can not even find the screws.

    If you are going to scrap the laptop, you can take it apart carefully, saving the parts. If you Google long enough, you can find the Compaq Manual online.

    Part it out and sell the pieces on eBay. There is probably someone who needs the screen. Take a look to see what they are getting on eBay for the screen, battery, charger, memory, harddrive etc. If you sell the HD you need to remove your personal data. Wipe the HD first. You will need a cable adapter to plug the smaller HD into a desktop computer but I do it all the time.

The power light just blinks along with rest of them on ac power

Could be a bad battery. You could take the computer along with the battery and have it bench tested.

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.

My compaq laptop F500 has black screen when power on

That sounds like a power supply problem. That would be the first thing I would check. If it was the processor, you would have heard a long beeping sound or if it was the memory you would hear about three 'annoying beeps'. The main reason you indicated there is no display on the screen and that the fan spins for a few seconds then shuts off, would hint that power is not going to the mother board long enough to spin the processor or cooling fan. Hope this helps :)

Presario wont turn on. its an f500, i turn it on and it immediately turns off, screen wont come assuming i need a new battery? want advice before i purchase the battery!!

Remove the battery, plug the wall adapter in and try to boot. If it works, the battery is the problem. If not; is the green indicator on the power brick on? If not, replace the power supply brick. If all the above is ok, the problem is internal and I would be guessing without testing.
