View Full Version : Laptop not starting

17-02-2012, 10:56 AM
My mate has a Compaq F500 laptop that will not turn on, when you press the power button it lights up for about 2 seconds and then turns off, even with a charger connected.
I have removed the battery and just used the charger, same issue.
I removed the ram and put them back in one at a time in different slots, same issue.
Please tell me some one has some thoughts.

The adapter isnt charging the battery as the either the brick is dead or the motherboard plug point is knackered.

It lights up, and goes when the battery is removed.
I even used my charger from my DV6500, same thing lights up blue and will turn on for that second or so.

most likely guess is Power circuit issue(internal).
You'll need to send it in for repair (about $160-200)
