Glad to join the group. Hope I can get some help. I have had this compacq for several years now. Working fine til I left it on , went to do something, came back and the only sign of life were the power and battery lights. Tried to power the computer by holding the button for a minute or more (suggezted in another forum somewere), Nothing happened. Removed the battery and tried again, nothing happened. Inserted the battery. Now no battery light. The only thing I can recall happening before this was perhaps the machine starting to boot up slower than usual.
I know the computer is old but I need to access it at least one more time so I can retrieve files which I need> After that I guess I'll have to buy a new one. So if I can get suggestions on how to try to start it by doing something inside the machine I'm game. Please no technical terms. I can find how things work an follow directions very well but technical terms is not my thing. (logical geek??).
Anyway the more answers I get the more ways I get to try .
Thank you in advance.
