Hello all, I have a problem with a Compaq F500 Laptop

Symptoms:
Laptop will not Boot, if you press power the lights come on there is a small whir then everything goes black.

What I have tried:
removing the battery powering on with out the battery, with the battery, nothing.

Reseated Ram, nothing.

Took hard drive out to external SATA/USB scanned, found several virus's, haven't attempted boot after this. Is there perhaps a bios flash in need if it was a boot sector virus etc. or any other suggestions?

Note: Laptop had unstable operation prior, would turn on and then shut off periodically.....perhaps it has shut down do to a cooling problem?

Thanks,

Nate

Hmmm...I really don't know what to tell you. I would try a bios flash. If that doesn't work, if you have another HD you can boot from I would suggest trying that.
Other than that I have nothing besides a free bump!
