Compaq Presario X1000 Power Issue


Robert, My computer does randomly shut down, but I think it is because it is actually running off the battery, even though the power cord is plugged in and says it's plugged in, so I was thinking it shuts down because the battery runs out. The fan runs at power up, but I don't think it runs any other time - is is suppose to? I opened the fan assembly and it was just a little dusty.
Do you think if I fix/replace the fan, the power might work? I can sometimes get power when I wiggle the power cord or hold it a certain way, but it has gotten progressively worse where I can hardly get it to make connection at all. And when I pull it out, the adapter feels hot. I'm thinking it is actually the dc power jack, which I don't think I can fix myself. Thanks for your help.

It is the DC jack. It has either cracked or come loose at the solder joints. This has been a vexing, yet commong problem on these Presarios. The replacement can be found for at little as $5. It is a simple, yet time-consuming repair. Search out the service manual on the compaq website. You will have to disassemble the laptop to get to the DC jack. I recommend using ziploc sadnwich bags and a sharpie to store and label all the various components and their appropriate screws.

The manual is critical as the laptop is disassembled in a particular order that you can really figure out just by looking at it.

The repaired DC jack lasted less than a year, now it is loose again. It really comes down to a design flaw on the part of Compaq, placing the DC jack in a high-stress location and not really reinforcing the DC jack attachment point in anyway (only the solder joint holds it only the board).

Order more than one jack, as you will likely make this repair again in the future.

Two things... put your hand on the bottom of it.... is it really hot and second any chance of trying another power cord on that ?. I believe you mentioned you tried that cord on another computer. perhaps use the other cord on yours to test it .

Battery is needed to complete circuit. Too bad you didn't have the old one.

Will not shut down


If your computer has frozen and can't be shut down properly, you have to force it to power off.
Press and hold the power button for 10 seconds, it will turn off.

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

Cannot turn-on my laptop


Hello Mahriah.
Try the following steps:
1) Remove the AC adapter and battery from the notebook. 2) Press the power button and hold it for a minute. 3) Reconnect the AC adapter, battery  and try starting the computer.
The issue might be with the excessive power in the capacitors on the Mother Board. We are performing the Power Drain procedure which will drain all the excessive power from the capacitors and it may make the laptop to work properly.

Compaq Presario X1000 power issues


Unassemble the fan and see if there is a lot of dirt and dust in there. If the fan is NOT working you need to fix that issue before you do anything else. Does the computer randomly shut down ?

Since u said that ur screen flashed and also u said that when u connected an external VGA nothing would display so from these two i can tell you that it is a hardware problem and that too with the VGA card/display card.
