Having problems with your HP Compaq Presario C500t Notebook ?

Compaq C500- Will not turn on no lights except for battery LED lit. It was working fine last night. The computer was left on and the battery ran down so it did not shut down correctly. When i push the power button nothing at all happens. Neither the power or HDD lights come on. I am assuming the power cord is good since it seems to indicate the battery is charging.


Answers :

Power drain would be a better solution in this case.
1.first shut down the comp
2.unplug the charger
3. remove the battery
   and after press and hold the power button for 60 seconds without any charger and the battery.After the 60 seconds replug the battery and the charger and turn the computer .

Pushing or holding the power button after the DVD drive has gone on does nothing. Nothing else happens. It must be turned off by unplugging the power cord. The tray will not open or close and neither will the CD drive tray. W
