Question about Compaq Presario 700 470024-192 Notebook

2 Answers

Compaq Presario F700 will not boot. At first the power light turns off right away. Press it again and it stays on for a while but the boot process never appears to begin. After a while the power light will only stay on for a second and then it goes out. I have tried removing the hard drive and power up but no change.

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 http://www.generalsystemsconsulting.com fixed mine at a reasonable price $125.00 includes return shipping back to me.

My compaq is power on for 2 second and off , how to fix is thank you


You need to print this out-on someone else's computer. Hope it works for you!
Remove the battery and charger/ac adapter/power cord from your Compaq Presario F700 laptop, press and hold the power button for 20 seconds to discharge any residual current inside the Compaq Presario F700 . This clears your RAM and is like a hardware reset. Replace the battery and charger/ac adapter/power cord and turn your Compaq Presario F700 laptop on.

Boot in "safe mode". As it starts up press F8, the computer ask you if you'd like to start in safe mode. Highlight "safe mode" and press enter. See if your laptop is booting up ok .

If your Compaq Presario F700 boots ok, do the following,

Try System Restore first,
Start Menu->All Programs->Accessories->System Tools->System Restore. Choose the most recent date before you the encountered problem. If it doesn't work, try the next date.

If System Restore does not fix it, as a last resort, you might need to fdisk, reformat your laptop hard disk clean and reinstall OS, that usually fixes all bugs. Before going that route, try following,

Uninstall unnecessary programs and applications.

Scan with a antivirus program

Scan with a spyware/malware program

CHKDSK C:

Clean up and repair registry problems with registry repair software of your choice

If the problem persists, did you check if it could be your Compaq Presario F700 laptop power cord or power source problem? Defective or insufficient power supply might cause error messages that are misleading. Take the battery out and power on your laptop with the charger only. Make sure your Compaq Presario F700 power jack and charger plug tip are securely connected. Did you notice the power jack loose? You can find laptop power jack on ebay. Fixing and soldering the power jack requires professional skill though. The charger green/blue LED should be on. If not, replace the defective charger. Compaq Presario F700 laptop battery charger, especially its power cord/cable, lifespan is limited and does not last forever, consider buying a lifetime warranty charger online from company like www.topmic.com

Presario f750us, push power button it lights up and goes right back off


I have seen another Presario desktop with this problem, and it was dust in the front panel jamming the switch on. Pushing the switch turned the machine on, but because it stayed on, after 4-5 seconds the PC shut down again.

I had to remove the front panel and clean out all the dust, then lubricate the switch movement.

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.

Compaq presario f700 ...Turns on and off repeadtly but won't boot up. Now If i hold ctrl,alt,del while it is turning on, the power light will stay lit but thats it.


Perhaps you have a virus. You would have to remove the drive and plug it into another computer using a USB cable. You can find these cables at newegg or tigerdirect. Once you have the drive connected to another computer, scan the laptop drive for viruses.
