I have a Compaq Presario F700 running Windows Vista, AMD 64 Athlonx2
I push the power button and it lights up all the lights in the front light and then it just kicks off. I thought maybe it was the charger so I boought a new charger and still the same thing.
Things I have tried
1. Holding the on button down for an extended time....shuts back off while still depressed
2. Unplugging, removing battery, plugging back in
3. Letting battery charge overnight

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated

Have you had any luck figuring out what the problem is? I have taken mine down to the motherboard and bench tested with bare necessities, new power connector board, new power button board, new power adapter, one ram......same thing. Didn't bother with an external monitor because the second the power button is turned on, it turns off. The question is does the onboard video card require a external monitor to be attached for the power button switch LED to stay on and a possible boot? Stupid question.....but numerous google searches have not provided an answer.
