Question about Compaq Presario R3000 Notebook
I just came back from a few weeks away and discovered that my laptop is dead. It won't switch on at all. I would be very grateful if you could advise me what to do please. Thanks.
All the Best,
If you are getting no lights at all on the laptop, you need to check the "powerline" - everything between the outlet and the back of the laptop.
Start by removing the battery. Then, check to see if the power pack has an ON light, if it does, make sure it is on, if it has a light and it is off, try plugging the power pack into a different outlet you know works. If it is still off, you have a bad powerpack and needs replacing. If the powerpack does not have a light, you need to find a geek friend with a multimeter (or get one at WalMart for $4), and check the powerpack's output in volts matches whatever it says on the side of the pack. If the voltages do not match up (generally) you have a bad powerpack. If you are getting normal voltage from the powerpack but the laptop is not getting any power, you have a different set of problems. Is the laptop beeping when you try to turn it on? Do you get any activity at all?
