Hi,
sounds like you need to replace the motherboard. It maybe cheaper to buy another laptop. Go to Compaq website and inquire on their discussion forums. Check out the motherboard price on HP and ebay. Google is your friend!
Cheers,
Steve
PS You could dismantle the unit and see if their is any visible damage, but motherboards tend to be difficult to repair.

Dell inspiron c640 dead

POWER SUPPLY & BATTERY PROBLEM
If thelaptop battery is more than 3 - 4 years old then the battery could be worn out.Rechargeable batteries have a finite number of charge and discharge cycles andwill lose their charge capacity over time, i.e. won't charge to 100% andgradually the charge reduces until the battery won't charge up at all. OR Thebattery shows a 100% charge but when the adapter is disconnected the batterydrops off to zero capacity in a very short time. If the battery drops to anunacceptable charge level then the battery needs to be replaced.Whenyou connect the power adapter into the laptop, does the power LED lightup? If not then -The battery adapter or the adapter's power lead or the laptop's powersocket could be faulty.Check power adapter's DCplug that connects into the laptop power socket with a multi-meter, the voltageshould be slightly higher than the voltage that is printed on the label on thebottom of the adapter. If the voltage is zero or way below the voltage that isprinted on the label then the power adapter is faulty and needs to be replaced.If the adapter is OK thenconnect it to the laptop and power it up, then look at the power/batterycharging LED light and wriggle the power plug in the laptop's powersocket. If the power/battery LED light flashes and in a certain position thisLED light stays firm, then the power socket is either faulty or it has a drysolder joint where it is connected to the motherboard.This can be repaired but itrequires the laptop to be completely dismantled to get at this power socket andrepair. If you cannot DIY then I suggest you get a quote first.

My pc battery shows red color when it is on power

If the battery shows a red color and it stays red even when the Power Cord is plugged in, then either the Power Cord is not charging the battery or the battery is completely dead and needs to be replaced.

The battery only has a useful life then it must be replaced because it will not hold a charge.

If you are able to use your laptop with the AC Adapter and Power Cord without any problems then the power cord must be ok and the issue is with your battery.

I have a Acer Ferrari 4006wlmi, which I'm trying to figure out what's wrong with it. It does turn on but HD indicator just stays lit (no flickering as to say it's accessing), it was undergoing...

Please remove the laptop battery and disconnect the Ac power. Then press POWER ON button and hold for 1-2 minutes. Then power on with the AC adapter only. Then start the laptop. It will powered on. After that shutdown laptop and reinsert the laptopbattery.
Even it wont work, remove the battery, hard disk and ram. Just insert the RAM and try to check the display. then insert hard disk and check the working nature of laptop on AC power only..

Further any clues please provide the feedback..

The laptop doesn't boot. Its dead. I tried connecting the charger, but it doesn't shows any signs of charging. It doesn't even show the laptop is charging.i.e no led is lit when charger is connected.Please...

Hi.

If it is completely dead check the voltage at power adapter DC contacts using a multimeter.

If there is voltage within 0.5 Volts from specifications, then try starting the laptop with no internal battery. A shorted battery may cause the laptop not starting.

If battery and adapter are OK, then the problem is the DC socket in the laptop motherboard. The laptop must be taken apart and the solder joints soldered back. This is a delicate job and must be done by an experienced repairer.

In some case the whole power circuit or the main board may be faulty. Testing is done reading Ohms at DC socket solder joints on main board (or power board, depending on model).

Regards.

Ginko.

Laptop battery not charging wanna know how to run without battery

The problem you described here shows that, the case is not likely to be a battery problem, but the laptop AC-Adapter (Charger) problem, because, the red light you are seeing shows that your battery has rundown, and even when you plug-in the adapter to AC, it still blinks red, showing that the AC-Power is not charging it. I would suggest that you get another Laptop AC-Adapter (The Charger), or try it with a friend's own first, then you'll see that the problem might not be with your battery but your AC-Adapter
