Having problems with your Compaq Presario Notebook ?

My Compaq v6000 notebook doesnt power on all lights just go on for a second then nothing... both with battery and adapter, the charge lights go on that's all when its plugged in. no sounds at all...it was working fine last night.

Answers :

Same thing happened to my good old Dell 600 laptop ... in my case, I just remembered that this is many times a safety feature which is just doing its job, kicking in to protect your CPU. That is, it sometimes happens that the little fan (which is little but does a big job, i.e., blows air over the CPU right next to it and keeps the CPU from overheating) just flat wore out and is not turning. Very easy to check -- just turn your laptop on its side and look at the fan while you push the button to turn the laptop on. Odds are you will NOT see the fan turning, so you need to go onto Ebay or some parts store near you and buy yourself a replacment fan for $15.00 and then download the manual or hunt in a forum like this one for the steps to replace the fan. Or take your computer to a shop where they will charge you $65.00 for the fan and $45.00 to install it. Your choice. Hope this helps.
