Having problems with your Compaq PC Laptops ?

My computer will not power on. When I turn the power on the yellow light will flash about 8 times the green light comes and and right back off. I read on here that I needed to take the battery out and unplug the power source and hold the power button down for 30 seconds. Then plugged the power cord in and turned it on. BUT now it will not do anything.

I have a Dell Inspiron 5150 that doesn't seem to post. When I turn it on, the power light comes on, the battery light comes on, I hear the heat sink fan run, but I don't get the Dell splash screen.
