Question about Compaq Presario 1200XL104 Notebook
When I power on the laptop the power adaptor and CPU lights are on. The fan is running but there appears to be no CPU action taking place. There is nothing on the display not even a brand flash so there appears to be no way I can select safe mode. I can switch the laptop off (FN key and power button)multiple times and eventually the unit will power up and runs like a dream. I thought it may have been the CPU battery but I have left it running for several hours. Date and time are always correct. As soon as I close down the same problem occurs. I also tried using an external monitor only to find it responds the same way. It either works (rarely) or it doesn't. The laptop is never connected to the network or internet and has nothing new installed in the last 4 years. Could it still be theMB battery? Any ideas would be gratefully received. Thank you
Check in the notebook power manager settings so that when you power off the laptop it does actually go off and not hibernate, and keep HDD powered on at all times and not set at power down after so many minutes. There must be a power setting problem, so if you do get it going, check the settings.
