Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

My compaq presario cq60 was working fine last night and it turned off like regular when i turned it off. today i turned it on and at first it turned on but then it shut off and now it wont turn on or make any noise at all. the button that gives you wifi access is pink but only when the charger is in. when i press the power button to turn it on nothing happens, my warrenty is up so there isnt much i can do.i urgently need this computer due to personal reasons so a detailed answer would be computer sceen is broken but not fully, you can see the page but very faintly so ive been hooking up the laptop to my tv sceen because it shows the screen more.

Try removing the battery and unplugging from the mains. Press and hold the power button for 30 seconds then reinsert the ac adaptor and try to power on.

If that doesn't work I think you may have a problem with the motherboard. Overheating commonly causes these issues, also if you plugged in the external monitor with the laptop "live" this might have caused some damege

Compaq Presario CQ60-215DX. Doesn't start

You will need to buy a new battery, there is no way old one will be OK. To see if it works, remove battery, and use wall adapter ONLY, PC should work fine. If not maybe Flat CMOS, replace, If replace and still NO go.must be bad motherboard (maybe try charge battery 5 hours left alone)
