Remove the battery from the computer and plug in the correct charger and see if it will power on. without the battery. if so turn off and put battery back in with power connected see if it powers up.

Compaq 730us touch pad not responding

To fix an unresponsive touchpad on your laptop/desktop XP Home, XPPro:
Reactivate it by using the Function key on the keyboard and the Fn key.

This process is different for each computer manufacturer.
If unsure which Function key enables and disables the touchpad, try each one at a time and then
attempt to use the touchpad after each one.

A...Locate the "Fn" key of the laptop keyboard.
The "Fn" key has different colored text or the key is a different color.
B...Locate the function (F1 through F12) key at the top of the keyboard that disables or enables the touchpad on the laptop.
The key typically has an icon that resembles a touchpad with a finger touching it or a touchpad with a diagonal line through it.
C...Press both the "Fn" and touchpad Function key at the same time to reactive the touchpad on your laptop.
Move your finger along the touchpad to verify that it works. Press the combination at any time to disable the touchpad again.
Note: Mac computers use "F2" to enable and disable the touchpad.

Wireless not working compaq 730us

First thought check for the wireless switch. It is normally located on side of the laptop, some models have this button above the keyboard. Make sure it is turned on. You can normally tell if it is by the color of the light by the switch. Blue = on, Red = off.

If this is not the case answer the following question to help narrow the search:

1. Has the computer connected to this network before?
2. Can the computer connect to anyother network (e.i. at a friends house)
3. Were any updates install?

I hope this helps.

How dead is the hard drive. will it boot up sometimes or it never boots? Does it make any noises or it runs as normal? If it let's you boot sometime but wont let you use it for long enough to get your data the solution i would try would be any Linux live CD. Download Ubuntu bootable CD and boot from that. Try and access your hard drive then. See what you get. If your hard drive is really dead though there's nothing you can do yourself you need to get it some specialized service where they can recover HD's like this. Good luck

Compaq presario 730us won't power on

Sounds like the power converter that is probably on the motherboard, so you may be looking at a new motherboard. Hard to tell without seeing it in person, but you can take it some place locally and they can troubleshoot power issues for you. GL!

My hinge screws are broke on my display on my Presario 730US laptop. I can't find any documentation on how to get to the screws

basically the same way I fixed my daughters laptop. I found 2 screws holding the button cover in place, then gently prying it popped out which gave me access to the screws. The screws on this laptop holding the hinges are torx screws, where as my daughters newer HP laptop was all phillips screws.
