I have a Compaq Presario F700 and when I try to turn it on, the power light comes on for a second (I hear the fan), but then shuts off again. The cause is most likely that I was restarting my computer for a Firefox update to take effect, but the computer jut said "Shutting Down..." for at least 20 minutes so I got annoyed and just unplugged and took the battery out. HUGE MISTAKE.

I've already tried the Escape key trick, holding Insert/Scroll, and taking the Ram out and putting it back in.

I'm not comfortable doing anything to the Motherboard...

Can someone PLEASE help?

Thx in advance :)

uhm.. maybe thats a virus.. well anyway.. just try this
>press (window logo+R) shortcut for run
>type shutdown -a
if that is active, let me know.. ^_^

Did you read the post? It won't come on AT ALL. Nothing on the screen, nothing.
