This sounds like a USB problem. If there is a short or damage within the port the computor will detect it and prevent it from starting. Usually it's a USB port you always use. This may help, Plug in the mains charger and remove all USB devices. This will confirm weather its the computer or a USB cable/device. If the computer still doesn't start, get a bright light and a magnifying glass and look inside all the USB ports on the computer. In the middle of the port there is a flat plastic piece with 4 metal contacts attached to it. Check to see if they are bent, twisted or flattened in any way and with a pin or other suitable pointy device, attempt to straighten any damaged contacts. If you cannot get the contacts aligned, just try to get them away from each other and away from the wall of the port, then insert a piece of card or folded paper above and below the contact strip and tape them down. This will insulate the port and stop a reoccurance of the problem. You should find the computer starts (with a few complaints from windows) normally. this has worked for me 9 times out of 10 for this problem.
Good luck.

How to reboot compaq mini


Reboot is another
name for restart, so
just click into the Start
menu then shut down
then choose restart. If
you are unable to do
that since if the laptop
is frozen push and hold
the power button in for
at least 10 seconds or
until the computer
turns off, then push the
power button again to
turn it back on. This
should only be done if
you are unable to do
anything else.
Ok
