connected up the AC adapter and turned my head. When I turned back the thing
was as dead as could be. Not a light anywhere. Disconnected the adapter,
pulled the battery, let it sit a while. Put the battery back in, tried
turning it on.... dead, dead, dead. Nothing at all. Removed the battery
and connected just the adapter, tried to restart.... still dead, dead,
dead. Tried holding down the on/off key for 15-20 seconds (heard that was
a means of resetting), still nothing at all.
Think it's the motherboard? Any other ideas or suggestions? Thanks.
If it's a goner like I think it is, it doesn't speak highly for Compaqs
since the only use this thing gets (or got) was on vacations for music
library, to store new pictures, GPS, email, and to pay any bills that come
due while on the road.
