Question about Compaq Computers & Internet

1 Answer

My Compaq Presario 500 laptop will not turn on. I know the battery was weak. I had the computer on one evening. The next morning, it was off. I tried booting up and nothing. No lights or anything. I noticed my cord was unplugged and I replugged it. Nothing. Thought possibly an outlet issue. Moved it to another outlet. I am thinking this could be a power cord issue. Thoughts? Anything else would cause this?

I'm thinking the same as you, the power cord is the problem, try to find a friend with the same brand of computer to try, for exemple HP have on a lot of laptop the same power cord.

    That is what I was thinking as well. I have been on the hunt for a friend with one. I can't think of anything else that would make it completely dead. Even if battery isn't great, it should power up when connected by cord to a power source.

    I read somewhere that an HP cord will power up a Compaq. Tried it and no luck. Any other thoughts?

    In case anyone else should have this problem, try taking out your battery first. It was my battery. After battery is out, try to power it up. If it powers, it is the battery. And.... HP cords do power up Compaq laptops.

I have a compaq presario x1000 that wont let me get past the logo. It was working fine one day, but then I shut it down. The next morning I booted it up it the computer never went past the Compaq logo.


It is likely that the hard drive is bad or a memory issue. I would start by removing the hard drive and see if it goes past the compaq screen. If it does then you know what is wrong. If not message me and will walk you through the next step
