Compaq 6910p laptop leds flickering like crazy

February 7, 2014 at 12:18:45
Specs: Windows vista, 2gb
This compaq 6910p laptop won't boot and when it is powered on all the LEDs on the laptop flicker on and off very fast like crazy. The battery LED flickers on and off steadily.
I had a dell laptop that did something similar and that turned out to be caused by a bad battery.
It hasnt been liquid damaged . So am looking for any ideas.
Have not tested it with a new battery yet.

Are you using the original AC adapter?

Can you start up with only AC connected?

How old is the battery?

The battery is the original one from new. Therefore about 5 years old.
I am using the correct charger. Original one.
Yes it will power on without battery but with the same flickering LE's and no boot.
Have tried changing the ram . The laptop also has a docking station. It is just the same when connected to that.

So, you don't see anything on the screen then?

No, the screen is completely blank. No signs of life.
