Compaq V 2000 Notebook Does not TURN ON

Hi,I am having a problem with my Compaq V2000. For a while it kept shutting down on me without any heating problem. This happened after not working on it for 3-4 weeks. Now it does not TURN ON. when I plug it to the power I don't show any lights ON at all. I had my Charger checked and there is no problem related to the charger. Could it be the Power Supply or the Mother board? How can I find that out without taking it to shop. It had passed the warranty. :( I appreciate any respond. Eva

Whell the answer is pretty complicated but however I'll try to give you some info. Laptops have some safety features on them. When you power up a laptop it does something called POST. (Power on self check) This is a BIOS function and after the laptop is powered (only then the BIOS is brought online) it displays eventual errors on the screen and so on. However laptops also have some hardware level potections. They use the various LED's on them to display a error code. If the charger wouldn't work properly some of this LED's will power on in a weird configuration, signaling an error code. If no LED, no response, no nothing ..maybe the problem is more simple. An internal faulty connection for example. You may dissasemble the laptop (if you have some basic knoledge of that, and some proper tools like a multimeter to measure some parameters). After that check the entire area around the DC jack connector for lose connections or burned out components. If you have another question, or want to do that, please reply with another question, to take this to a more deeper level.

Screen is black, but fan runs. Then computer cuts

This most often means you have a bad cpu or motherboard. When the bios does its post checks it looks for issues and will shut the pc down if all the devices are not funtioning correctly or the CPU reaches critical heat.

Its just shut down and wont turn on. It has been working fine.

If you have connected your power adapter directly (without a power strip) to another outlet that works, and still doesn't power on, these are generally the reasons:

1. Power adapter is faulty - replace
2. Battery is faulty - replace (try without battery)
3. Power jack on laptop is faulty - repair

Hope this helps to at least narrow down and help you troubleshoot your problem.

try to use other hard disk. if it works on your machine then your OS is corrupted. You might need to reformat your hard disk.

Before reformatting your hard drive safe all the files first because everything will be deleted.

Compaq V2710us shuts down randomly with a loud click

Loud click sounds like either a short or overload, causing ground default. recheck inside for any loose connections anything grounding out the motherboard.

Compaq v2000 dies after some time

Is the machine getting hot when it shuts down? If so, then you may need to clean the fan and heat sink. A dust or dirt build up can hinder the cooling system performance allowing the machine to heat up to a level that kicks in the built in fail safes in order to keep from damaging the processor. Try cleaning them and let me know. We'll go from there.
