A: Presario CQ57 WIFI problem

Hi: That is not the id for the wifi. That is the id for the wired ethernet controller. If the wifi is missing a driver, you will see a device listed in the device manager as a network controller. What is the full model number or product number of your CQ57? The product number can be found on the same sticker as the serial number.

My sister is having major problems with her Compaq Presario CQ57 (running Windows 7). I have been trying to help her with it but, I am about to literally throw it from a very high window. I'm thinking it has a malicious program lerking inside it. I am trying to get it into safe mode and am having a hell of a time. I want to do a scan on it and I believe it is better to be i safe mode.

There is no F8 option so that is out. I tried msconfig and computer says it can't find the file,(by the way it says that to any program I try to install). Since I can't get anything to install and everything I seem to try hits a brick wall I am at a lost on what to do. Every time someone gives me some advice on how to maybe fix this I can't seem to get past the first step!!!HELP!!!! She has only had the computer for a couple of months. This is her first brand new computer and it seems she has made a very bad choice!

The Wireless has already quit working too! Buyer Beware!!! Please can someone please help me out?? I am desperate.

Hi, my laptop key fell off the keyboard, and I cannot figure out how to pop it back in. Everything looks to be in working condition, and even the white plastic components have remained on the keyboard. Unfortunately, every single time I press down on the black key, it never actually clicks on.  I've come to the conclusion that there must be some unique process to re-adjusting a key on this notebook. I've searched around on keyboard websites, but their guides do not seem to directly address my situation. They usually end with just pressing down on the key, which does not work for my specific notebook, it'd seem. I'd appreciate any advice.

Hi guys.  Was wondering which processors are compatible with this intel-based board.  The current processor is the Intel Celeron B800 (1.50GHz).   The system will hold a pretty decent amount of memory running at a decent speed: DDR3L PC3L-12800, CL=11, Unbuffered,  NON-ECC,  DDR3L-1600, 1.35V  Though the processor is dual core, its performance seems highly mismatched to the memory the system can handle.  Does anyone know of a list or even just a couple of suggestions of processor upgrades I can swap this Celeron one out for? Thanks for any and all help in advance!

I was recently given a Compaq Presario CQ57 (300 Series)  by a friend running Windows 10 64 Bit.   Processor - AMD E-300 APU with Radeon HD Graphics 1.30 GHz It was running very slow so I upgraded the Hard Drive to an SSD and increased the RAM to 8GB. I then did a clean install of WIN 10 64 bit. While this has improved the speed a little bit it is nowhere near as fast as I would have expected.  The only software I am running at the moment is McAfee Anti-Virus and Firewall. Does anyone have any suggestions that could still be making it very sluggish. I gather that it is not possible to upgrade the processor. Thank you

I recieved a new Compaq Presario CQ57 notebook from my father-in-law who never used it. Unfortunately it had a bad hard drive right out of the box. Years had passed so no warranty. I replaced the HD with another of the same. The computer came with the disks so I thought this would be simple but alas as many things in my life things didn't go as planned. The disks supplied are the 2 disk version. The computer came with Windows 7 Home Premium installed. When starting the disks by rebooting the computer the top of the black screen says "starting Windows 98" and further down the same page it says "Error: unable to detect... ADAPI IDE CD-ROM device driver not loaded". Seems to load anyway and start up well with disk one but when it gets to the point that it asks if I have the 1 or 2 disk version I hit 2 and immediately it asks me to insert disk 2. Before doing so an error flashes up in the bottom left corner that says "no files found. Invalid drive specification". I obey and insert disk 2 but nothing happens except for flashing the same message. In a nutshell - no restore.

I've searched the net for days trying to find and answer and came up with ideas but nothing specific. I have run all the Bios tests and all come out working well. Boot order is cd/dvd room first. I downloaded a copy of Windows 7 onto an external drive but I can't get the CQ57 to read it even after changing the boot order. Also downloaded the drivers for the CD-rom but can't lo... Read more

A:Cannot restore Compaq Presario CQ57 with disks

There's surely something wrong with the message of "starting Windows 98" and having Win7 discs for it. Windows 98 is quite old and there's 2 versions, 98 and 98SE [Second Edition]. As I recall there was also an update for 98 similar to a Service Pack. There should be a multi-color sticker on the case, maybe on the bottom, that gives the version of Windows and the required Product Key, useful for determining what its origin was.

A:What do I need to upgrade to make faster my Presario CQ57?

RAM is the much easier upgrade. I would recommend at least 4 gigs, and it will take up to 8. It takes DDR3-1333 SO-DIMM memory. CQ57-339WM seems to be your model.  This is the Service Manual which you will need to swap processors: Manual The CQ57s with a Celeron processor will accept only Celeron processors. There are a couple faster Celerons available for your computer but swapping a Celeron for another Celeron just does not seem worth the effort to me.  If you want the computer to run faster install 4 gigs of RAM and consider upgrading to a solid state hard drive. The speed improvement will actually be more than you would get from upgrading to a faster Celeron CPU. Post back if you want additional specific suggestions.  If this is "the Answer" please click "Accept as Solution" to help others find it.

I have this laptop here that is, to put it mildly, SLUGGISH. General windows performance is very noticable. Meaning, you click on something for it to open up, and it could be upwards of 10 seconds or more before there is any kind of sign that your program will finally be ready to open. 
Then there is internet. Internet explorer is unusable. It will display things on pages, but if you have an intention, of maybe clicking a link or maybe scrolling down, the delay in it actually doing it is well over 10 seconds usually. 
It has Firefox and Chrome installed. These are working, with some lag. Normal surfing is ok for speed, even videos will play without painful lag or choppiness. But for instance, on Facebook, if a game like Candy Crush or really any of the browser based games, tires to load, it has the forever load... then poof all at once it is loaded lag going on. Then once in the game, there is severe graphic degradation and  unplayable lag with clicks and drags for actual gameplay. 
 
I have had this machine before and cleared it out of any and all infections that it had. I ran the same programs I did last time, downloaded from this site. Malwarebytes first scan did find traces of Conduit (that was all that it found), but got rid of it. Then, there again I ran all programs, including Hit Man and everything seems to come clean now, including 2 subsequent runs of MWB.

Well, you are running win 7 in the completely minimal specs, that might be one of the reasons, either way i'm sure my fellow forum members will help you reduce the load in your system somehow. I'd usually recommend an upgrade, but i don't think it's possible in your case, altough switching to Windows XP should improve your experience alot, it might just not be a good idea since it'd require wiping out win 7 and most laptops forbid that. Either way, would you mind taking a screenshot of the processes running in your computer? Listed in order of most memore used.

Hello Tech Support Guy forums! I'm wondering if you can help me with a problem.

My girlfriend has a Compaq Presario CQ56 laptop, but the screen broke and she replaced it with a CQ57, which I guess is the next most advanced model in the line. However, the skype connection would drop after just a few minutes and then drop repeatedly afterward every couple seconds. Usually, all connected services (like AIM) would drop off too.

So here's the weird thing - she returned it and got a replacement, and the replacement is doing the same thing. The CQ56, on the same network, can keep a skype call going for hours. But the 57 drops off fast, and we've tried two different units. I thought that maybe it could be a defective laptop the first time, but twice?

Anyway, does anyone have some troubleshooting suggestions?
 

A:Connectivity problems, particularly with Skype, on a Compaq Presario CQ57

would you post the following when its working and then repeat all the tests when it disconnects

is this connected by wifi if so also add the xirrus tests

------------------------------------------------------------------------
ipconfig /all
If you cannot access the internet with this PC, then you will need to paste the results into something like notepad and then copy onto a machine that can access the internet and post results here

We would like to see the results from ipconfig /all post back the results in a reply here

Hold the Windows key and press R, then type CMD then press Enter to open a command prompt box (A new dialogue box - black with white font, will appear on screen ):

In the command prompt window that opens, type the following command:

Note that there is a space before the /ALL, but there is NOT a space after the / in the following command.

ipconfig /all > network.txt & network.txt

It will export the results to notepad and then automatically open notepad.

Now all you need to do is copy and paste those results to a reply here
to do that:
From the notepad menu - choose Edit - Select all
all the text will be highlighted
Next
From the notepad menu - choose Edit - Copy
Now go back to the forum - reply and then right click in the reply box and paste

   Hi, this seem to be a question doomed to be without solution, but is there a way to configure the fan settings on my Presario Windows 7 x64 Laptop? It becomes warm pretty easily and while it performs well, I've heard that it extends life-expectancy greatly with high cooler temperatures. So far I haven't found anything able to change them for this specific computer, while on my Macbook ( schoolcomputer, don't blame me!) I just needed to install a third party, change RPM and target temp and then it was done, not even a reboot needed. Im using a cooler allready. Has anyone managed to do this? Im pretty experienced with managing my PC and the system, but I'd prefer to not meddle with registry and such. Thanks in beforehand!       /illirey

A:Fan settings on a Compaq Presario CQ57 Windows Laptop

Hi,CPU fan speed (RPMs) are managed by BIOS based on the CPU temprature. tweaking registry may not help manage the RPM. maximum you can achieve is, manage to cook the CPU which will heatup the processor more, which will make the heatsink FAN rotate at higher RPMs. which is anyways not going to solve issues. infact it can increase the troubles. however if you see any issues caused due to heating of notebook, you may wish to follow steps below and try to reduce the heat on the PC by cleaning heatsink etc...http://support.hp.com/us-en/document/c01657439  Good Luck !!!!

-right clicked on properties and made wifi findable
so on and so on. My Led is white showing that I have wifi enabled. I've turned off my router, unplugged it, reset it, so on and so on but the same thing occurs. I have a couple other laptops and tablets in the house and they connect to my wifi with no problem. It's showing that I have full reception but just won't connect. I even tried connecting to my portable hotspot and it does and says the same thing. I can connect my Ethernet cable in the socket of the computer and it works just fine, but I need it to connect to my wireless wifi as this is going to be my work laptop and used on the road.

I've just bought a Compaq Presario v6000 with vista - the Wifi connection to my DLINK router if giving me intermittent problems.

The link to the router seems to remain up but i lose my connectivity to the internet. This can happen if I leave the unit idle for a few mins or I hibernate/sleep the unit. The only way I'm able to the re-connect is to shut down and restart the Laptop.

Has anyone seen this before?

Hi, the Presario can connect to unsecured computers in the building and go on line but can't connect to the Internet via my router using wifi.

It can connect to the internet if I connect it to my router using a cable.

Local only and unidentified network and a message about multiple networks.

Device manager shows 2 adapters.

Atheros AR5007-802 wi-fi and Realtek RTL 8139/ 810x NIC #2 and I believe I have the most up to date drivers for both of them.

I'm using WPA2 - PSK

Log into the Router and disable the wireless security and see if you are now able to connect to the internet and surf OK.

Hey guys, need your help. I own a Compaq Presario CQ62-230E1. Am using windows 7 4bit .Last September the motherboard crashed and I had to take it to be replaced. When it was repaired, I took went and collected it. At first I noticed that when I connected the Ethernet cable to the laptop there was no internet connection. Whenever I ran diagnostics it told me same issue, local are network doesn?t have a valid ip configuration. I tried connecting via wifi and it was working properly the only problem was that the modem had to be close to the laptop, like literally a few centimeters away. Recently as of one week ago it totally stopped picking up wifi from the ISP modem no matter how close it is returning the error wireless access; problem with adapter. The irony is when I try to connect the laptop to the internet via my phone whether it is tethering or hotspot it connects to the internet. My friend who is a computer expert thought it was a software issue but we downloaded and installed all the necessary drivers. We even went as far as to format local disk C just to be sure and ensure all the junk is chucked. He guesses that the problem is hardware suggesting that when they replaced the motherboard they must have interfered with the wifi /Ethernet boad. Any help will be highly appreciated. Alvaro

I recently updated my Inspiron 14" 5459 to the Windows 10 anniversary update, i noticed that when my wifi access point changes or wifi signal drops or turning off wifi, my laptop semi-freezes, you could still scroll with the mouse or track pad and select open tabs but that's all, clicking other icons and even the windows start menu does not work, if you wait for more than 5 minutes, everything goes back to normal. Waiting around for about 5 minutes is annoying so what I do is press ctrl alt delete and from there restart the laptop. my wifi adapter is updated to the most recent version and also both graphics card (intel hd 520 and amd radeon m335) is also updated to the latest version.  Any suggestion on how to resolve this issue?

A:after Windows 10 anniversary update, Inspiron 5459 freezes if wifi is turned off or wifi access point is changed, is there a solution to this problem?

Please confirm the wireless card from the device manger or the network control panel. Also please update the BIOS firmware to the latest version. The BIOS update should ideally be version v1.2.2. Also please try system out with  a LAN cable as well to confirm if is indeed caused by the wireless. Though this may not run a complete diagnostics on the network you can run a hardware diagnostics on the computer using the following steps

Shutdown the computer
Hold the 'Fn' key and turn on the computer
Let go of the 'Fn' key after 2 seconds

This is will initiate the H/w diagnostics. Please let us know if it completes or if  you run into any errors. If  you do run into any errors.

I have recently installed 2-4GB DDR3-1333 (PC3 10600) SODIMM Kit of 2 CT51264BF1339.M16FMR. Sorry if that is too much information on the new memory but I just wanna make sure that I have complete details posted.

After I installed the RAM, I immediately checked my computer properties which shows the 8GBs of RAM installed. I understand that the computer doesn't use the 0.4 GB of RAM but that is not my problem.



Here is my problem. I try to test my RAM by opening several programs with the highest memory using settings but the CPU hits 100% when it's only using 2.5 GB or less. These are the same results prior to installing the extra memory. (I only had 2GB of RAM at the time but the results haven't changed.)



I am stuck with the same problem after calling technical support from the website that I ordered my RAM from. Crucial They instructed me too wait a few days and that the computer would get accustomed to the new memory enhancement but the performance hasn't improved in the past 5 days since installation. If anyone person could help me with my problem, I would be extremely grateful.

Hi Daven,

I may be wrong here, but your Task manager screen capture implies that the processes you are running require CPU resources, and not additional RAM. I don't see any problems at all.

Hi All,

Win8:
I have two wifi APs in the home and I have it all set up so that one is the Internet by cell phone tether and the other is the cabled network via the router wifi.

Works just fine - except.

On wifi 1, Internet I have it set for "Connect automatically" which at boot up it does.

On wifi 2, Network I also have it set for "Connect automatically" which at boot up it does NOT do. I have to go in and connect manually even though the "Connect automatically" is checked.

It seems win8 sees "Connect automatically"and does it but then stops checking other connections. Probably a "feature."

Is there some way to force both "Connect automatically" to happen?

Thanks

Hi my name is adrian, I have a compaq presario 2800, the screen doesn't work, bright spots start to appear and then all the screen is bright and you can't see anything.

The external monitor is working ok. I have a clear picture. i've run all the test that the compaq website suggests and it couldn't detect any problems
I put the new screen in another laptop and works OK, I put the old screen in another laptop and the problem of the brightness it's the same.

I've checked all the cables and it apears to be fine, If I turn on the other computer and use the inverter board to turn on the lcd, when I connect the cable for the video card, it is all black.

I bought this Notebook right after I got out of basic training 2 and a half months ago and I have a major problem. It was working fine up until a couple days ago and I haven't been able to use it since then. What happens is whenever I connect the power it turns on the processor and thats it, nothing comes up on the screen and the hard drive doesn't seem to engage. The hard drive light doesn't come on and nothing else happens. I try switching to the battery power and it does the same thing. This is a major problem for me because theres not much to do here besides play around on the computer, I'm 2800mi from my home in the states, I'm on an island in the Azores, out in the Atlantic. Please help me out, I'm at work so I hope someone see this soon. Also, try to suggest things that I can do to fix,reason being , I'm far as hell away from everywhere and it would be quite expensive to send this thing back to Compaq. Thanks
 

A:Presario Notebook Problem

Try it without the battery connected. If that doesn't work it will need to go back to Compaq. If its only 2 1/2 months it should be under warranty - this is a hardware problem. They should pay for shipping, or at least some of it since you're in a unique situation.

Sorry, without laptops there's not much to try in such a situation

Hey all. Was on ICQ several weeks ago when a hacker sent an unsolicited message which I didn't even have to accept - just came on in spite of firewall, contact list only acceptance levels, etc. Included (at end) was a "sticking my tongue out" icon. Since then my "p" flares on when least expected. I thought it was stuck but when I hit it a couple of times the whole keyboard was disactivated... (Obviously am not on that lappie right now). Sometimes it doesn't happen for several days then won't even let me log on to the pc at all...

Could it be a virus? Something wrong with the keyboard? Are there any instances of similer shenanigans by the "p" or tongue sticking out icons????

A:Compaq Presario Boot problem

As I ahve been working with computers my whole life you must be one person that might not know a lot. I am not calling you a liar or anything but I do not believe that your hard drive is under the keyboard as HP owns compaq and I ahve not seen an HP note book that has a Hard Drive under the Key Board. I believe your hard drive is under tha lab top or at the front. Mind it being you will have to take some screws out and go hunting.

On anoter note if your Hard Drive was fried yur lap top would not even reconize it. There for Ibeleieve it is a windows installaion problem I think yiou said you are using Win XP. If you are do a full format of your Note Book and try to reload the boot disks. If the boot disks dont work the just load windws as your boot disks might have a problem or are corrupted with scratches mis use etc.

Can anyone help me with this? I got it used so I dont have a recovery disk or anything. Here are the specs:

1.7 or so Ghz Amd Sempron 3100+
around 896mb of ram
128mb ATI RADEON video card (forget which one)
Altec Lansing speakers

Thats all I know from the top of my head. It would be greatly appreciated if someone could help me.

Hello,

I have Compaq Presario C784TU laptop with windows 7 updated on it.

Recently while watchng a movie,the audio suddenly started giving problems.
i updated my audio driver in the device manager and it installed Conexant High Definition Audio Driver 221. After installing that,my audio completely stopped working.

Also,that my headphones are working but only the speakers have stopped working.
I have checked all the settings and also i dont think there is any problem with the hardware.

Could any one please help me with this.

Thanks.

Hi,

I would suggest you to run Windows Audio Playback Diagnose and Repair from the below MS FIX-IT: http://support.microsoft.com/mats/AudioPlayback/

If the issue still persists, then go to control panel/sound/speakers/properties/advanced/restore defaults.

If nothing works, I suggest that you uninstall and reinstall the drivers for your Audio device. This will reset all Audio Components.

Kindly revert and let us know if that fixes your issue.

Hello,
first of all, i dont know computer that much.
My problem is, i've downloaded a malicious malware, maybe a virus and my lappy kept on rebooting when the blue screen appears! What i did is i reformat it with the cd that comes with the package (windows vista starter) and the oem pre installation kit. My another problem is there is no cd drivers on the package. So some drivers dont work well. In device manager, there is no network adapters installed and whenever i try to install drivers like intel pro 2200bg wireless, it doesnt install properly! Until now, the only thing i cant use wth my lappy is the internet. How can i make it work again?? Im so sad with this! Help please. :-(
Thanks,

Hi there, heres my problem. I have a compaq presario 6000, windows xp, it seems like a video card problem, I cant play some of my games, like nascar 2003 season, Dirt Track racing 2, and others with high graphics, the screen sometimes will freeze with some areas scrolling and other areas with what looks like rainbow stripes. The video card is an Intel(R) 82845G/GL Processor. I called Compaq and couldn't understand what the guy was saying, his accent was really strong and I told him I was sorry and couldn't understand him. It did seem like he said that the card was built in to the mother board, can I up grade the card to a full meg without changing the motherboard too? I updated the drivers on the current card and still the same problem. Thank you, Bulldog

Hello all...
I recently wanted to install a program which told me i halfway through the installer that i had to have SP3 to run it.
So i googled sp3, went to the microsoft website and downloaded it.
My pc started to do the loop reboot thing thats assicoiated with amd processors..of course i didnt read up on this before i installed it.
So i researched how to fix this problem and came up with alot of different solutions.
I went to go get the xp disk. Inserted it in the drive and pressed F10 upon startup which launched the system recovery thing for compaq. I clicked recover or whatever and it started to do its thing, next thing i know its reinstalled xp...
So im thinking its wiped everything and installed a fresh version of XP which is not the case.
It still shows the programs in the program list but i cant use them and when i look at the C: drive capacity, there is still the same amount taken up and a little bit more, as i had previously before the crash.
Ive kinda worked out that its installed itself over the top of my older xp? but i dont know how to get this back
Please help!

The problem that I have is with a Presario 2188cl. AMD 2500 proc, 768 ram,40 gig seagate. I cannot boot from drive. I can boot from winxp disc, format, then start install. The setup files write to the disk, but when the computer reboots to start the install, it will sometimes sit at a blank screen with a curser. Other times it will print characters. They change with different setups:I the drive was formatted in NTFS= "SlSl", in FAT32= "PU7" although the 7 is really more of a 90 degree right angle. If I have the winxp disk in and let it go past the "press any key..." so that it boots from the drive it prints "KAKA" with two dots above the "A"s.

When I boot an ERD Commander disc, I can see all the setup files on the disk.
I even hooked the drive up to my desktop, installed xp, it ran great. But when I hook it back up to the laptop, same thing.
Thanks

I bumped my laptop this morning on the mouse pad (the thing you run your finger on to move the mouse curser) pretty hard and my laptop shutdown, as I went to power it back on it wouldn't turn on. I can click the power button all I like nothing will start up. I took off the caseing above the RAM and hard-drive and made sure they didn't shimmy loose, after I made sure neither was loose I put the covers back on and I'm still having the same problem.
I have been having hard-drive problems latley and have to replace the hard-drive but thats beside the point.(Laptop only works in safe mode with networking). I have someone who wants to buy it with the current hard-drive problem due to the great price I offered. But I am ensured that theire not going to buy it if the damn thing wont power on.
The power cord and battery work just fine. (Was working good last night) Could somthing be loose? I have read tons of articles on this matter and nothing I saw applies to me. Would this have somthing to do with the CPU and Motherboard parts getting loose enough so it cannot recive power? Or is this one of them problems when I have to either take the whole damn thing apart and sauder stuff or what? Any imput will be greatly apreciated.
 

A:HP Compaq Presario F700 problem

You need to disassemble the case to get to the MousePad unit... remove, adjust, and replace it, then remove or disable the current touchpad drivers, and reinstall them from a Presariou download...
It there is any permanent damage, you will see it, but usually it is an adjustment of components.

Hi:

Here's the problem:

Someone asked me to see if I could upgrade an early (old) Compaq Presario 5WV254 computer. The first thing I did was max out the RAM (768MB) using Crucial's 'certified' Compaq modules.

This dinosaur has a 40GB hard drive and an nVidia 8MB graphics card. I placed Windows XP Pro into the drive and proceeded to format the drive with NTFS. Everything went smoothly, and the machine rebooted after installing the drivers, etc.

Unfortunately, instead of continuing to proceed with the usual installation process, it starts the initial setup process over and over (I let this happen about 7 times) and will not complete the installation.

I've performed upgrades on lots of these older Compaq Presarios, but have never encountered this before.

Does anyone have any ideas as to how this issue can resolved?

Thanks in advance.

Griff

When starting this pc it will load the BIOS but is then unable to load the Win XP software. It gives a message stating that it is unable to find the system software telling me to initiate the repair process.

By pressing the 'r' key a restart of the pc is initiated causing the pc to reboot. Sometimes the boot process will find the systems software and other time I will need to press either the F1 key to go into the BIOS setup and the exit or press the F8 key to go into safe mode startup to cause the pc to find the system software and thus start up.

This pc has all of the latest updates from Microsoft loaded onto it. The XP version is 2002 and with service pack 2 installed.

I have run the PC-Doctor software installed on the pc which tells me that there are no problems with the hard disk. That being case, is the problem with the operating system? If so how might I obtain the repair disk the BIOS is asking for?

Any help would be appreciated!

A:Compaq Presario startup problem

Your pc should have came with a XP Installation Disk. All you do is insert the CD in the CD Tray and reboot. When it ask to press any button to boot from CD, press any button and the CD will start to load files. Once that is complete (usually 2-5 minutes) press ENTER the press R to repair Operating System

Hi there!,

I have a Compaq Presario 1400 notebook model 14XL355 (celeron 667). It came with 64 MB of RAM (integrated). I have just bought an additional 128 MB of RAM (branch infineon, model hys64v16220gdl-7.5-c2), but when I connected it, my laptop did recognize only 64MB. That is, now my laptop says I have 128 MB when I am supposed to have 192MB.

Any idea about what's happening?

Thanks!

My Compaq Presario X1000 has a problem that i find impossible to fix. What happens is that when I turn on the pc, it doesnt respond and just stays blank even though all the lights are on. When i learnt about the pressing the top of the f6 button while turning it on, it works. But during using the pc, it would somehow flicker and turn black again. Is there any way to permanently solve this problem?
 

A:Compaq Presario X1000 problem.

It sounds like you have a hardware problem. Maybe a power short. Maybe a bad power cable or connector. Maybe a bad motherboard. The possiblities are nearly endless.

If you feel that you are not skilled enough with notebook hardware, consider taking it to professional. Often they will diagnose for free or little money.
