Compaq 7400 laptop no front LED indicator lights

  1. Compaq Armada 7400 with Win2K OS

    Yes, the same laptop with the previous DIAGS partition problem - that was solved! Thanks.

    Now ...

    It wasn't in use for a few weeks. Then started it up - no front LED indicator lights - sudden shutdowns - battery not charging - replaced battery - charging fine but still no front LED lights and occasional sudden shutdowns.

    Any ideas?

    "and occasional sudden shutdowns"...

    Does this mean that the computer boot into Windows at times even with the panel lights off?

    I usually can boot to Windows - sometimes the shutdown happens during the boot sequence.

    Thanks -

    Switched back to an older and smaller HDD - no change, so I will see if getting the memory tested helps. Appreciate the help and will let you know what happens when I have a chance to take the laptop in for the memory check.

    Okay Mary,
    testing the memory may not be enough. You may have to swap it out

    Will ask my long-suffering tech guy to see what he can do with switching out the memory ...
