|Hello, I'm hoping someone may be able to help me with this problem.|
A few years ago my laptop, which is a HP Compaq Presario 2100, stopped working. I'll try to explain the best I can what's going on:
When the laptop is plugged in and then turned on, all of the lights on it will turn on, all of them except for the power indicating light. The screen remains completely off, and it doesn't sound like the hard drive is running, just the fans. The CD drive and floppy drive both work. The weird part is that the things that do turn on only stay on for about 10-20 seconds and then everything shuts down. And no matter how long the laptop is plugged in the charge light never turns on and the battery in the laptop never gains any power. I can tell this because this particular battery comes out and has a manual indicator of power on its side.
I'm assuming that there is something wrong with the power, but I can't be sure. Anyone have any ideas? Thanks!
EDIT: I forgot to mention a few things:
-VERY rarely the screen will turn on, but it doesn't display anything, it just glows.
-Somethings the power indicator light will blink, as if the laptop is in sleep mode.
-When the laptop is first plugged in and all the lights come on, the hard drive indicator light (the one that indicates the computer is running or busy) flicks on but then right back off.
