Having problems with your Compaq Presario Notebook ?
My laptop will not come on even through i went and bought a new charger.
Have you tried it without the battery attached if not your system board is faulty and will need replaced. If not under warranty search around for a cheap board or goto a pc shop as they should be able to replace the board for you however they can charge a good bit. My advice is find a friend how can fit the board for you if you can get it cheap enough.
