Question about Compaq Computers & Internet
The laptop is probably charging the battery. I assume you have already tried running this on AC power alone with the battery removed and then on battery power alone? If not try those methods first
Check to hear if the CPU cooling fan is spinning and there are sounds of the hard drive or CD Rom baing accessed. The laptop base should get warm around the heatsink vents after a few minutes too.
If there is CPU and HDD activity, the problem is most likely related to the graphics chip, common on HP / Compaq laptops. This will need a Reball.
If the laptop will physically not turn on and there is no activity as described above, the first thing to look at is the power switch. Remove the switch bezel and see if the power button on the motherboard is sticking or damaged (small contact about the size of a matchhead). Also check if there is a small cutout switch just below the screen near the hinge that is sticking or damaged.
After that, the issue may be the power circuit. Check that the AC adaptor is a tight fit and dis not sloppy, it may still charge the battery but fail to provide power for booting, it will need replaced if sloppy or loose
After that, the issue is likely to be motherboard related and will need a technician to test fully
