Strange that the vid card would stop the whole thing booting, but hey, now I’ve seen it with my own eyes! Sadly, the magic was only short lived. It works for a bit and then fails in a similar fashion or by showing video artefacts which then crashes the machine anyway.
Once you install NDIS, you then have to download specific drivers depending on your wireless card (there's a table shown in the link), and the guide walks you through the process.

I recently received a friends old Compaq Presario R4000 and was trying to get 9.10 installed but the Broadcom B43 wireless card won't cooperate. I have read through multiple threads on here as well as many google searches and have not been able to get it working so any help would be greatly.
Yet, annoyingly enough, if I pull the thing apart again and just reseat the VGA connector just above the keyboard, all is well again. I can’t work out exactly what’s wrong because the slightest pressure or movement causes it to fail. Its a few years old now but hasn’t been dropped off a cliff recently so what gives? VERY annoying, any other suggestions apart from a hammer or super glue?!?!?:-p •. | Hi, My Dell Inspiron 9300 refuses to boot on AC adapter, with or without battery installed! The brief history of the laptop is as follows: I bought the laptop a little bit longer than one year and a half ago. Last year, I accidentally spilled water on it.
It shut off by itself, but somebody turned it on immediately, it shut off by itself again. Then it won’t boot. I took the laptop apart, blew dry all the parts, and put them back together. It boots, but only when the battery has power in it AND the AC adapter is NOT plugged in. Isn’t that weird?! Last week, the laptop was off when I came back home (it was on when I went out).
I found the light on the AC adapter was off by itself, and then the battery was drained. That was why the laptop was off. But I really had a very hard time turning it back on. Somehow the battery had a little power left, just enough to turn it back on, and within literally a second I plugged the AC power in and started charging the battery. Now the laptop is working again. But I am very annoyed by the fact that if the battery goes bad eventually, the laptop will be useless. Can someone please give me some hint?
What possibly went wrong? How can I fix it? Thanks a lot! Your site is excellent, I just discovered it via google and it’s very very helpful. Question -> brother broke the 1, 2, alt, ctrl,?, and I key. Many of the parts are lost.
I took it to the shop, but since I’m overseas, they were very unexperienced, and weren’t quite sure what to do, told me I’d have to buy an entire new laptop keyboard similar to it for 1000 sr, which is really really expensive and won’t come for 2 weeks, I dunno what’s the deal. Also, super glue spilled on the underside of the I key which remained exposed cause the actual key is gone – which, although I attempted to remove it with acetone, I couldn’t get a hold of the acetone till the next day, and it was already dried and ruined, now the key requires an extra push when typing and has a lot of friction, which is super irritating and inefficient.
Is there anything else I could try or should I just take the plunge and put my precious laptop in these guys’ hands? It’s still under warranty, but the warranty isn’t honored in a different country, only the country you bought it in, unfortunately. Thanks for any help, much much appreciated =) •. | I have just had a Compaq Presario M2000 handed to me with the words “it doesn’t work”. With both the power cable plugged in and not plugged in, it doesn’t boot. It has power as indicated by the power light, but that is all it does, power on.
There are two leds blinking, one above the scroll [num lk] button and one next to the caps lock button. The hard drive does not power on, and the DVD ROM acts like its going to then stops, and repeats this over and over. It initially beeped twice when it was first powered on, but after removing and reseating the ram that stopped. As it sits right now there is nothing but one stick of ram in it, no HD, no DVD, the needed hardware to get it started.
I’m stumped at this point. Also odd note, compaq says these are all intel, but this one has a Mobile Sempon Sticker on it. | I HAVE A PRESARIOV5000 AND I’M HAVING PROBLEMS WITH MY LAPTOP TURNING ON. LAST TIME I WAS USING IT IT WAS WORKING JUST FINE AFTER I WAS DONE I TURNED IT OFF LIKE I USUALLY DO. WHEN I CAME BACK FROM WORK I FOUND ONE OF THE PROCESSOR ORANGE LIGHT ON. I THOUGH I HAD LEFT IT ON AND TRIED TO TURN IT OFF BUT IT WOULDN’T RESPOND TO ANYTHING I TRY DOING.
I TRY REEBOTING, CHANGING MEMORY CARD DIFFERENT BATERIE AND OTHER TROUBLESHOOTING GUIDES BUT NOTHING SEEMS TO WORK. IF SOMEONE KNOWS A RESOLUTION TO MY PROBLEM I WOULD APRECIATE ANY HELP I CAN GET. | My daughter’s HP Pavilion zt1290 had a failed solder joint where one of the pins of the ac adapter connector goes into the motherboard.
I re-soldered the connector, but now the machine won’t boot. Thanks to learning a bit from your site, I tried to systematically find out what was wrong.
Here are a few of the things I tried & the symptoms that resulted: 1) Tried to boot with only the motherboard, the screen, the processor heat sink, the fan, and the power adapter. At this point, the memory modules were the only other thing plugged in.
Result: Fan starts up for 5 seconds or so, and turns off. 2) Reset the system using a paper clip, as the HP manual suggests.
Result: Same as 1). 3) Added the optical drive with the XP system disk inserted. Result: The fan & screen behave as in 1), but the drive starts up & runs for a while (perhaps a minute – I didn’t time it), and seems to be seeking occasionally, based on the noise I could hear. Then the drive stops also. 4) Removed optical drive and tried all the possible configurations of the 2 memory modules, one at a time in each of the 2 memory slots, and both in, but each in the opposite slot from where it had started.
Result: Same as 1). 5) Tried 1), 2) & 3) with an external monitor plugged in the VGA out port (with the laptop’s display still connected). Result: Same as 1) & the external display stays blank.
Result: Same as 1). 6) Playing around with the configurations, I noticed that the status LCD display on the front edge of a laptop would show the time.
I started trying the buttons for the status display on the front edge and found that with an audio CD in the optical drive, I could get the display to show that it was trying to play the CD. That is, for example, to display would show it going to the first track and would start timing, as if it was playing the track. The buttons would allow me to switch tracks, and start/stop playing, at least according to the LCD display. The CD itself with spinning in the drive. I tried putting the speakers back, and the little board that has the external volume and audio on off buttons to see if I would hear music. There was no sound.
I’m really perplexed, particularly since it had been booting up until this point when the power connector was working (before I took it apart). I’m pretty aware of precautions necessary to avoid static damage, so I don’t think it’s likely that that is what occurred. I’m also confused by the symptoms with the CDs that I described, because I don’t know the relationship between that kind of CD playing (from the front panel, with the computer off) and the rest of the computer. Any suggestions or advice would be very much appreciated. | hello there i have a compaq x1000 laptop and im having problem with it and i need an answer for this and hope you can help me.i was on my laptop and it shutted down in intermitted mode and when i plugged in the a/c adapter since it was low on battery and when i try turning it back on it boots up fans spinning and then a sec or 2 later it shuts down and it contiue doing this when i take the battery out and plug in the a/c adapter it wont turn on at all but when i plug the battery back in with the a/c adapter in it it boots up and then shuts itself off?
Its weird that it wont turn on without the battery it is 4 years old and i like to know what could be the problem? | Herb Krakau, Tried to boot with only the motherboard, the screen, the processor heat sink, the fan, and the power adapter. At this point, the memory modules were the only other thing plugged in. Result: Fan starts up for 5 seconds or so, and turns off. Try starting the laptop without the LCD screen connected, use an external monitor instead. Check if the video cable is properly connected to the motherboard. If the video connector on the motherboard has pins inside, make sure there are no bent pins.
Check if the memory module is seated properly, move it into another slot and test the laptop again. If for some reason you removed the CPU during disassembly, make sure it’s seated properly and LOCKED inside the socket. | qassem, After I pushed on the power button, fans started spinning and were active for a few seconds, LED is on, but my laptop still blank (not display any thing) and not working, no beep sound. It can be a memory related problem. If you reseated the memory module and it didn’t help, try replacing it with a known good RAM.
If you have two memory modules installed, remove them one by one and test the laptop with each module separately. It is possible that one of the modules is bad. Just in case try this. Unplug the power cord, remove the battery and wait for 2-3 minutes.
Then plug the power cord and turn on the laptop. Sometimes it helps. | Hello, My Presario R3000 over the past week has been unable to connect through USB to my digital camera or External Hard Drive (from any USB port), won’t read a 1 Gig SD card through the card reader (it shows up in my ‘My Computer’ directory, but tells me to ‘insert a disk into drive F’ when I double-click on it), and refused to read a blank DVD (for backing-up my files).
At the same time, however, it DOES allow my to use my USB-connected mouse, and will let me play CDs and DVDs. Do you have any idea what’s going on? I’m at a complete loss.
| Andrew, I think this could be a software related problem. The laptop “sees” your USB mouse, so most likely there is nothing wrong with USB ports. The laptop can play CDs and DVDs, so most likely there is nothing wrong with the optical drive or the motherboard controller.
You can try this. Using System Restore revert the operating system back to the time when it was working properly. If it doesn’t help, go to the next step. Backup all important personal files and reinstall the operating system from scratch.
| The problem with the hp’s is not the cable. There is a small aluminum piece in the laptops screen. What happens is over time, the little plastic piece that covers the voltage converter slides over. Then the aluminum piece ends up touching the back side of the plastic piece where the wires go in. All you have to do is take apart the monitor and slide the piece back over and its fixed. I just did it on my nc8000 that was having the same problem for a while. My screen would go out if the screen was moved but you could still see it a very little bit.
Hope this helps. | Compaq evo n160, would only turn on once in a blue moon, then would switch off without warning, at random. Does not turn on at all at present. One light comes on on the laptop (the one saying the charger is plugged into the laptop). Battery charging light does not come on. Tried with memory, without memory, different slots, different memory. Tried battery only, PSU + battery, PSU only, also tried above with hard drive removed.
Nothing happens! Its a new battery (it did manage to charge it a bit once when it was turned on, and stayed on for a hour or so) but also tried the original old battery. Its also a new psu, which is putting out 19v with the right amperage for that model. When it did power up, it worked fine until it turned off instantly after a random amount of time.
Courier did let it fall out of the van on delivery, so put in a courier claim, but looking to find out the probably part that needs fixing/replacing. Nothing happens when power button pressed. Tried leaving it unplugged, without battery for hours, no joy. Tried removing the bios battery, and leaving it unplugged for ages, before putting battery back. Any suggestions?
| I have an HP Pavilion ze5460us laptop, key “O” doesn´t work and it beeps for 5-10 seconds on startup. I want to take apart the keyboard and check that specific key. After taking out and disconnecting the keyboard, the underside has a clear plastic cover which is bonded to the main board of the keyboard. The small screws which I suspect have to be removed to completely disassemble the keyboard are covered by this clear plastic shield. My question is, should I expect any complications when I take out the plastic cover and remove the screws to disassmeble the keyboard?
| I have a HP Pavillion XH555 40 gig AMD 4 processor that just had Windows XP crash but when I went to reinstall the software, the bios now reads, “Internal hard drive – none”. I’ve since purchased a used Toshiba hard drive that I installed but I still got the same results, and I now have a cracked hard drive adapter to boot. The computer has been running great and the motherboard looks fine. I don’t have anything cracked underneath, from what I’ve seen so far, but I don’t know if this is something I can fix. Did it just crash and is done? | I have problem with my laptop Evo N1020v.
When I try to turn on the laptop it don’t boot up but power led is on. Screen is black. I noticed that when my processor isn’t in socket and I try to turn on laptop it of course don’t boot up but all the two fans spin out. When the processor is in socket the two fans don’t spin out. It seems that there is some kind of problem with my processor and this is the reason my laptop don’t boot up.
Some time ago my laptop boot up after many times of trying to turn it on. But now even acces many times don’t help. | I have problem with my laptop Evo N1020v.

Maybe it’s useful information? Some time ago my laptop boot up after many times of trying to turn it on. But now even acces many times don’t help.
| Great website with good resources. After reading some of the appropriate materials, I think I’ve narrowed down my laptop’s problem: I own an HP/Compaq nx9600. The machine has a very checkered past (already had to fix the power supply, heating system, broken “on” switch, etc), but it’s very nice when it works.
Right now, I’m having a problem where when I try to turn the screen on, the screen remains blank, and the computer beeps twice quickly before resetting. I believed this had to do with system RAM – after resetting the RAM firmly, I can usually get it to start up and get to the desktophowever, after a minute or so, the screen goes blank, and I have to restart the machine (after which, the aforementioned beeping loop plays). Could there be something else wrong with the machine? Thanks so much. | Joe, You are right, this could be memory related issue. I just looked at the laptop maintenance and service guide and it looks like you can access both memory slot from the bottom of the laptop, simply removing the memory door. How many modules you have installed?
If you have only one module, try moving it into the empty slot. Test the laptop and find out if the problem is gone. Try replacing it with another working memory module. If you have two memory modules installed, test the laptop with each module separately.
Test each module in each slot. Find out witch one is causing the problem. If the laptop works fine with both modules installed into the slot A, but freezes with both modules installed into the slot B, apparently you have a problem with the slot itself. If the laptop works fine with one module in both slots but freezes with the other module in both slots, apparently the second memory module is bad and has to be replaced. My preceding comment was hasty. Not all models have Maintenance and Service Guides offered (the two I was looking for didn’t). But you can try another model which may offer it.
Then after downloading it, compare the diagrams for similiarities with your model for disassembly. Close enough to do the job. I searched under my model # and turned up one bogus hit, but a general search (no model #) turned up quite a few to choose from.
My model was a Pavillion ze1115. Yeah, I know, most of you already figured this out. Thanks again. | Joseph Santos, I doubt that you can do this kind of repair at home unless you have proper equipment and a lot of soldering experience. How do you fix connector problem between video card and laptop motherboard in compaq presario x1000 model. It works only when pressing on the video card area. Apparently one of the connectors (on motherboard or video card) has a cracked solder joint and has to be resolered.
I’ve never done it myself because my soldering experience is limited to power jack replacement. | i have a presario v1700. And its been having problems with the video.
Whenever i turn it on all i see is different colors or black with white lines. It seems as though the computer works fine its just that the lcd is having problems showing the display. Im wondering if it had to do with dynamic link library being deleted. Me and my brother were trying to free up memory on it since it only has 2gb on it and this took up most of the space and he deleted it than slowly the display started going out until you couldnt even get past the startup screen.
Ive been trying to see if it works with external monitor but i havent figured out exactly how that works. Havent had too much experience with laptops before. But i dont need help with that.
Ill figure it out sometime. | corey, whenever i turn it on all i see is different colors or black with white lines. It seems as though the computer works fine its just that the lcd is having problems showing the display. Can you see Compaq logo when you turn on the laptop? If your laptop has a screen like that right from the startup and you cannot see normal Compaq logo, your problem is not related to Windows, something else is going on. In order to narrow down the problem you’ll have to test external video.
If both internal and external video have the same video problem, it could be bad video card. If this problem appears only on the internal screen but external video works fine, it could be bad LCD screen or video cable.
If your laptop starts fine and you can see the Compaq logo, but video fails after Windows starts loading, it could be software issue. Try booting the laptop in Safe mode. | Scott Best, My problem is when power is pushed the fan turns but then it quits, sometimes it comes on to password screen then runs about 30 secs and the screen goes to black leaving the power lights on like it is still on Could be memory problem. The slightest touch on the right side of the keyboard it does the same thing Try moving the memory module from one slot to another. It’s possible one of the memory slots is bad. When you touch the laptop, the memory module loses connection with the slot.
Just a guess. | Hey I need your advice on two totally bizarre issues that I’m having with two totally different laptops. The Toshiba Satellite M35X-S149 had a bad drive and only 256 mb memory.
I upgraded the memory to specs and changed out the drive. I reloaded and the machine turned itself off 3 times during install. I finally got XP Pro back on there, along with offiice but never go to the stage for antivirus–and now it won’t turn on at all. I wondered if mabye a BIOS update/BIOS flash update would help–but now it won’t even come on. The power cord is funny, yet the port in back is very tight–NOT loose. I hate to pay a lot of money for the pro to solder it and then it turn out to NOT be worth it.
Also, I have a Compaq nx9010 Business lappie and it’s totally insane. I added memory and hard drive–it’s not reading all the memory, plus it can’t find the hard drive. And it’s giving messagds I have never seen before. Holler at me when you can please Sir, I’d appreciate your advice. TIA, Sherry _____ •. | I have an hp ZT1290, laptop. This unit worked fine until I replaced the hard drive.
After the new HD was installed and configured, all MS updates installed, I shut it down and didn’t use it for a few weeks. Next time I booted it up, the screen was black, although I could see the screen by shining a light on it. I tryed these things with no luck: 1) updated BIOS 2) updated drivers 3) ran a diagnostic from HP 4) cleaned the cover switch 5) tried to toggle the screen 6) hooked up an external monitor (worked fine) 7) replaced the display inverter, and checked the backlight bulb (OK) So, What the heck is wrong here? Any suggestions? | hello, my frnd did vomit on my laptop compaq presario v3060(thanks for stupid heavy drinking).immediate the screen goes off and now screen is not coming up but power is coming up with LED lights.i have opened the laptop and clean everything.even detach and attach the LCD cable but still nothing coming up on screen. My hardware guys said it is issue of Mother Board(System Board) which needs to be replaced and which is around $250.
Can anyone help me in this. I dont think so it damage the LCD, my view is issue with any display chip.any suggestion?
Thanks, Saffy •. | I had my monitor go black on me last night, and saw on your site that I could get the maintenance and service manual for my Compaq Presario C503WM Notebook PC (C500 Series) at the HP website, which would enable me to check and reset the cable, if that’s what it needed.
Unfortunately, they don’t have one for the C500 Series (this is what they told me via chat). It’s a little difficult to try and explore the monitor assembly without some sort of schematic, so I’m a little stuck. I’m afraid if I wrestle my way through to the actual connectors of the monitor, I might break the hinges — I really neded some kind of assembly diagram. | My co-worker’s daughter changed the bios in her Compaq Evo N-400c and promptly forgot it.
I was asked me for help. I have tried almost everything to reset the CMOS. I removed the main and RTC batteries, took out the hard drive and let it set overnight. I plugged it back in without the main battery (per the Compaq repair manual) and it still asks me for a “Power-on Password.” How is this even possible? Is there some capacitor I have to drain the power from?
I have checked the system board and cannot not find any jumpers. It’s not my computer, but it is still frustrating. Any suggestions? | Andy, My co-worker’s daughter changed the bios in her Compaq Evo N-400c and promptly forgot it. I was asked me for help.

On some laptops you cannot remove the BIOS password by removing the main and RTC batteries, apparently that’s the case with your Compaq laptop. I afraid you’ll have to replace the motherboard and ship it for service to HP.
| Ronald, why I can not get the internet working on my presario 1500,it says that I am connected. But thats it. There is no simple answer to this question. Could be just wrong settings.
Are you running Windows XP? Try this: Start>>right click on My Network Places (in the right pane)>>Properties Right click on your network connection (wired or wireless)>>Properties>>Highlight Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) and click on properties button In the General tab you’ll see settings for IP address. This settings have to match your router/modem. In most cases it should be set to Obtain an IP address automatically. | hi, there are a few comments regarding broken screens but no answer- hopefully someone can help me here- i have a compaq presario c300. Only half the screen works the lower half is just dead pixels, but if you press the bottom right hand corner of the screen the lower half works (just while pressure is applied).
This makes me think there is a connection problem so i have disassembled the whole laptop (thank you for directing me to instructions!) but dont know what to look for (was hoping to find a trapped wire or something, but everything seems in order!) anyone any ideas? | I have been having issues getting my Compaq F730 started. Over the last couple months, I’ve had about 5 times where the computer will not boot.
After pressing the power button this happens: – all indicator lights on the front light up – nothing is displayed on the screen, and the HD light never goes on again – fan runs – if DVD is in drive, this spins up – after ~20s the laptop shuts off and restarts. To troubleshoot the problem, I’ve tried this: – take out HD and put in another computer. The other computer read the HD fine.
– boot with a linux or windows boot disk (it started once with the linux boot disk, but I think this was a fluke as subsequent restart problems were not fixed by this). – start with battery only – start with battery out (AC connector was lit up, so I don’t think it is a broken connector problem) – pressing F10, esc, del after powering on. Nothing shows on the screen – shut the lid and reopen it. (If I remember correctly, sometimes the light on the front went off after doing this, but this may have been when I was testing without the battery in). – hit the computer – reseated the RAM chips I’ve gotten out of the restart mode before but it seems to be random. | tom kb, only half the screen works the lower half is just dead pixels, but if you press the bottom right hand corner of the screen the lower half works (just while pressure is applied).

Your description sounds like a problem with the LCD screen, not the cable or wire.
You’ll have to replace the screen. | quote david: I have a Compaq Presario V5000. The screen is black when turned on. (I know the screen itself is good.) My computer works fine when hooked up to an external monitor. I’ve tried locating a loose connection to the screen by disassembling my laptop.
Everything seems to be connecting fine. Can anyone help? Is there an easy way to toggle between external monitor and the laptop screen? David, Look at the keyboard. There should be a little screen thingy on one of the F keys (usually f3,f4,f5) Hold down Fn and press that key a few times until you have somthing on both monitors.
| ValerieH, I have an HP Pavillion dv6835nr entertainment center laptop and the jack is loose. HP told me it was the adapter and i paid for a new adapter and still have the same issue. HP disregarded my telling them the jack feels loose and talked me into buying the adapter however I am having the same issues. Please tell me how to fix this without having to send HP my laptop because I am to the point of not trusting them anymore after the waste of money on the second adapter. The power jack is soldered to the motherboard. It’s necessary to disassemble the laptop, remove the motherboard and replace the DC jack with a new one. I explained how to replaced laptop jacks in this post: It’s not easy and requires some soldering skills.
If you don’t know how to solder, I would suggest taking your laptop to a local repair shop. If you send your laptop to HP, they will replace the whole motherboard and charge you tons of money. | @ Bryan Terman, I have a hp dv6913rs i shut it down went to start it a week later and it will come up to a hp screen and it has f key does this on the bottom of the screen have tried all of them done the hard reset sum time it will let me in the bois other time Try removing memory modules and test the laptop with each module separately. It’s possible that one of the modules is going bad. Just a guess. It will get line on the screen hp things its the mother board is there a test for this please Just one line or many vertical lines? If you get multiple vertical lines running though HP logo, this could be motherboard failure.
| I have a Compaq Presario V3500. Few months ago i can’t turn on my laptop. But went i plug-in the battery charger, there is a light turned on (it is look normal when battery charger is pluged and switch on). But i still can’t turn on my laptop.
When i bring it to computer service centre, they told me the motherboard was spoilt and need to change. But i refused to change.
Now for your information, after some months, when i try luck to turn on the laptop, suddenly the laptop turn on. Everything going as normal. The system is okay. But few days later until now, my laptop is doing the same problem. It cannot turn on. Please help me to solve this. | @ Maran, after some months, when i try luck to turn on the laptop, suddenly the laptop turn on.
Everything going as normal. The system is okay. But few days later until now, my laptop is doing the same problem. It cannot turn on. Please help me to solve this. If the laptop starts intermittently like that, it could be one of the following: 1.
Failed memory module. Bad connection between the memory module and motherboard. Failed motherboard.
Try reseating both memory modules. Test the laptop with each memory module separately.
| I have a compaq presario 2500. I disassembled it and did organised the srews in a proper way I thought! I did download the service manual for this presario, but the pictures are not detailed enough and my memory ( braincells ) is not that young anymore to get it together again. I would like to find a video or photos with more detail so i could see the proper places for parts better then is possible with the pictures from the service manual.
I googled for it many times, but can`t find the right video for this model.
