Hello, compaq r3000 does not start. power adapter may or may not work but laptop was already connected to wall power even without the battery (was found with a leak) and even so, CQ r3000 does not show any sign of life! What should I continue checking? Resistors? Any current inside? Heeeeelp! I do not want to be taken and end up with a horrendous bill. I guess I need a friend with same ltop so I can start replacing part by part??? email@example.com 34205

That laptop is really ancient. The first thing to try is: make sure the charger (AC Adapter) delivers the power the laptop needs, you need a cc tester to do so, or test the laptop with a known working charger.
