Hi
try removing you battery and powering it up....
it could be your charger,even if the power led is on there still could be a voltage failure...i,ve sorted a few laptops like that before.....
Or it could be the charging port connected to the motherboard??
Try to gently wiggle the adapter going into the charging port and powering it on...to see if that makes a diffence....


Hope this helps...if so please take the time to rate it,as i,ve taken the time to answer you...if i can be anymore help...

Regards

    no good...i have tried to power up without the battery in, with no success....it sounds like it is going to turn on and then after about 10 seconds it turns off again

    Hi..
    Sorry to hear that...when you plug the power charger in does any lights come on you laptop..i.e battery charging lights without the laptop switched on..

    Regards

  • andyj758 Apr 03, 2011

    no....even when plugged into the ac, with or without the battery in, there are no lights on at all on the laptop

  • anthony_grac Apr 03, 2011

    o.k...
    so there is no power getting to the laptop at all....so it can be 1 of only 3 things..

    1,your ac charger maybe faulty..even with the led power light on on your charger,you may have a broken wire or a bad solder joint on your jackplug...i,ve had this several times when i get laptop in for repair...
    2,the charging jack attached to your motherboard may be faulty,but this can replaced..
    3,if your really unfortunate it may be a motherboard issue...

    But what i would try 1st,if i was you...would be to replace you laptop charger...you can pick up a cheap 1 on ebay....just to try it....7 out of 10 times this will be the problem..

    Then let me know how you go on,or if you can get another charger to fit....but be weary....as long as the voltage is similar you are o.k...but make sure the ampage is the same...as the wrong ampage can do alot of damage...so i suggest a cheap new charger from ebay,and if this works...then if you want buy a oringinal or a patterned 1..

    regards

How do i turn the wifi on my compaq nc8000 after installing the wireless card


Maybe you don't have your wireless turned on. Look onboth sides and in front for the Wireless Switch and turn it on.

Also once the wireless switch is turned on there are keystrokes that can togglethe wireless on or off. Normally you would Press and Hold the FN functionkey located at the lower left of the keyboard, then hit the correct F1 thru F12key that toggles the wireless. The correct F1 thru F12 key to hit willhave the wireless signal icon )))) on it. Or it might have the icon of a towerwith the wireless signal icon )))). Normally the screen will displayWireless On or Wireless Off when you toggle the wireless.

Compaq nc8000 won't start please i wont to know the problem on the mother board after swicth on it will go off after 4 second and it wil not even show anything on the screen and the fan too will go off.


It could very likely be the motherboard causing the problem, in which case you're best off just getting a new computer rather than replacing or repairing the board, but it could also be a power issue.

Try turning the computer on with the battery installed and the AC adapter disconnected, and then try it with the AC adapter connected and the battery removed -- does it show the same symptoms both times?

Screen goes black. Put it in sleep mode. Then hit the start and it comes back on even with powercord in..what can fix it?


this could be probably due to static charges or corrupt bios settings.
Turn off the PC, disconnect the AC Adapter and remove the battery. Now press and hold the power button for 45 seconds.
Now download and install the latest BIOS update available for your notebook from manufacturer's website. If issue persists, reinstall the display drivers.
I hope this will help to resolve the issue.

ELECTRICAL POWER DOES NOT SEEM TO WORK EVEN THOUGH PLUGGED IN


Try another outlet in your home. Or if it is plugged into a surge protector remove it for the surge and plug it directly into another outlet

AC Power and Battery Problem.....


Sounds like the battery or possibly the charging circits themselves are the problem. Can you try turning on the laptop with just the power cord in and no battery?

No Screen on Notebook Compaq nC8000


Hi Tori1206,
Usually Laptops use the F3 key as toggle for switching from laptop monitor another external monitor. So you might try depressing the F3 key to switch back to the laptop monitor...
