My first time posting a question; thanks in advance for your responses to help me with my situation.
I had a problem with my DC Jack, opened the laptop, fixed the jack, reassembled the laptop. Now starts the problem: I turn the power on on the laptop, it comes alive, the Compaq logo is displayed and displayed and displayed ad infinitum, nothing else happens. The laptop is humming, the fans are spinning but nothing beyond the Compaq screen happens on the display!! I pressed all the keys - function, F8, F12, F11, F2.... drummed on every single key on the keyboard - nada, zip!
Any help would be appreciated to get me past this problem!!
