Hi, I'm having some trouble getting a Compaq Presario 1247 to start up. It sat for a few months and when I tried to start it only the light indicating that the power chord was connected would light up. I took the battery out, unplugged the power, and started all over. With the battery in and the computer plugged in the power chord light, battery light (blinking) and power light all came on. The screen even lit up (COMPAQ written across it) and the battery light stoped blinking. But then nothing. I let the battery charge but now I'm right back to only the power chord indicator light being on. Taking out the battery and reinserting it does nothing this time. Plugging it in and starting it without the battery in does nothing as well.
Any ideas? I appreciate the help.
