Question about Compaq tc1000 Tablet PC
It won't power up... It was working fine a few days ago...then when I tried to turn it on... I could hear it start to boot, but nothing on screen... then it shuts off. Th ebattery is full charged... 4 yrs old... it won't boot up with it plugged in.
I do not know if this will help your situation any or not. I just posted this in another thread. I purchased a used TC1000 for $35 (I just couldn't help myself, despite what the owner stated was happening).
It would power on, but no Compaq POST.
Toshiba taught me a simple trick when I was having issues with my X205 gaming laptop. Basically, remove all power sources (including battery). Hold the power slider to the on position for 25 - 30 seconds. Then power back up. You have to discharge whatever electricity is in the board/ps otherwise I believe the MoBo senses additional charge/not enough charge and refuses to boot.
I did this and have had 25 successful boots in a row.

Try firstly removing the laptop's
battery as it may be at a critical voltage and the system will not
start because of it. Plug in your ac adaptor and monitor what
happens. Does the power light illuminate? If it does it should then
boot up, if it doesn't, try a known good ac adaptor before going any
If the adaptor is fine then you have a mother board fault and should contact a dealer/repairer for further advice.
Hope this helps.
