Question about Compaq Presario 700 470024-192 Notebook
Sorry to be a few days in getting back to you on your request. Our system of alerting us about these requests does not work properly right now and I've been distracted by a recent death in our family.
Do you still need help with this?
Your problem is quite similar to a 'stuck' button. But, from your description it occurs when you press the Power Button. Can you tell if the button feels recessed after using it or does it pop backup up as expected? If it returns to normal for you and this behavior returns as well. Do you power off by removing the power cord and battery? or are you able to do this by holding the power button down for 5 seconds?
If you have to remove the battery and power cord, you will have to take this to a service center or a local tech who has a reputation of working on Laptops. I suspect a bad switch that would need to be replaced or examined and repaired. This requires the Laptop to be disassembled and you should not do this on your own unless you are absolutely confident in your ability to not affect any components and damage them in the process. Disassembling a Laptop has its hazards and people who do this without foreknowledge usually damage their laptop.
I do not support you doing this by yourself but to rely upon an Expert Repair Location.
