Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

I have a presario f500 and it will not turn on


Answers :

Try this:

Unplug everything (and I do mean *everything*) from the laptop and remove the battery.

Then with no power of any kind for the laptop, hold down the power button 15 seconds.

Attach A/C power and try to turn it on.

If that does not work, remove power and take out the CD/DVD drive and if you feel

comfortable with it, take out the RAM and hard drive.

Connect power and try to turn on. See if you get beeps or a power light on the laptop. If

you get beeps, put the RAM back in and try power again. If that gives you a display, add

back the hard drive.

Let me know what happens.

I have a Compaq Presario F500 laptop that is about 6 months old and the internal wireless card is going out. It takes about 2 hours of restarting before it actually turns green and picks up the signal. I don't see a spot to put in an external wireless card and my computer person says that it's too expensive to repair an internal and I need to get an external. Is the F500 different? Can I use a wireless card that perhaps connects through the USB port?
