SOURCE: power up problem
The battery is dead. I have a compaq too and when this happens it is because thebattery has run out. As stated above plug it into the wall and hopefully your battery will charge.

It sounds to me like there's a short in the AC adapters causing it to have enough power to charge the unit when it's not pulling power, but once it starts pulling power, it basically becomes overwhelmed and can't do both power and charge. There's also the chance that the DC jack [which the AC adapter plugs into] is bad. However I'd suggest checking the adapter first because it's simple to obtain a new one and if it doesn't work, you can most likely just return it and say it doesn't work as opposed to a dc jack being repaired which would have to be done by a professional with the skills to handle it [of course unless it's under warrenty, less than a year old, but judging by the model I'd say it's probably not]

It's the motherboard. Check to see if yours is still under warranty even if you've had it for over a year.
HP / Compaq has recently extended their warranty period for certain models.
Let me know if you have any other questions.

Have you tried another power cord? If you try another power cord, and it still does the same thing, then I think your laptop is having a power problem. You need to take is to a technician to fix the problem for you.
