A good day to all! I got a problem with my Compaq cq40. Its not powering up, the white led light indicator on the power jack is dim. I've already tested the adapter using a multimeter and the output voltage is right. Its totally dead no fan spins, no hdd led light activity and no beeps. Seems odd that Its just working fine yesterday and I did turn it of properly. Hope you guys can help me out tnx!
thank you sir for a quick reply! I already tried the adapter without the battery but still no power. I'm currently disassembling the laptop and will try to look for any signs of damage or burnt components.
I have a similar(identical) problem with a cq60-100ea. The light on the power port glows, but that is it. I have tried without the battery and no diffrence, just dismantled it and tested the power going through the port(it's on a cable with connector - not soldered) and current seems to be flowing through it. Kind of lost with this one. Have you had any joy? Thanks M.
