    I have a compaq presario 2500. I disassembled it and did organised the srews in a proper way ……I thought! I did download the service manual for this presario, but the pictures are not detailed enough and my memory ( braincells ) is not that young anymore to get it together again. I would like to find a video or photos with more detail so i could see the proper places for parts better then is possible with the pictures from the service manual.
    I googled for it many times, but can`t find the right video for this model.

    @ Maran,

    after some months, when i try luck to turn on the laptop, suddenly the laptop turn on. Everything going as normal. The system is okay. But few days later until now, my laptop is doing the same problem. It cannot turn on. Please help me to solve this.

    If the laptop starts intermittently like that, it could be one of the following:
    1. Failed memory module.
    2. Bad connection between the memory module and motherboard.
    3. Failed motherboard.

    Try reseating both memory modules. Test the laptop with each memory module separately.

    I have a Compaq Presario V3500. Few months ago i can’t turn on my laptop. But went i plug-in the battery charger, there is a light turned on (it is look normal when battery charger is pluged and switch on). But i still can’t turn on my laptop. When i bring it to computer service centre, they told me the motherboard was spoilt and need to change. But i refused to change. Now for your information, after some months, when i try luck to turn on the laptop, suddenly the laptop turn on. Everything going as normal. The system is okay. But few days later until now, my laptop is doing the same problem. It cannot turn on. Please help me to solve this.

    @ Bryan Terman,

    I have a hp dv6913rs i shut it down went to start it a week later and it will come up to a hp screen and it has f key does this on the bottom of the screen have tried all of them done the hard reset sum time it will let me in the bois other time

    Try removing memory modules and test the laptop with each module separately. It’s possible that one of the modules is going bad. Just a guess.

    it will get line on the screen hp things its the mother board is there a test for this please

    Just one line or many vertical lines? If you get multiple vertical lines running though HP logo, this could be motherboard failure.
