Compaq laptop not booting

Compaq / V6000

Specs: Windows Vista
Hi, I have a Compaq presario V6000. It worked properly. But recently it would not turn on. Its not the power source, because the blue light on the power cable is on. When I turn it on, the power light comes on, and all the blue lights come on for about 3 seconds, then it turns back off. Any help on fixing this? Maybe hardware failure?

Thanks in Advance

Make sure the main battery is properly seated. Most more recent laptops will not fully boot if only the AC adapter is used.

A common thing that can happen with ram, even ram that worked fine previously, is the ram has, or has developed, a poor connection in it's slot(s).

See response 2 in this - try cleaning the contacts on the ram modules, and making sure the modules are properly seated:

For a laptop, or netbook, you must remove both its main battery and AC adapter before you do that.

For a brand name computer, see the Owner's or User's manual if you need to - how to remove or replace the ram is usually in that - it may already be in your installed programs. If you can't get into Windows, it may be on a disk that came with the computer, or you can go online and look at it or download it - it's in the downloads for your specific model.

The HP site also often has Service manuals available for your laptop series.

If that doesn't help......
