I am trying to resurrect a Compaq CQ60-514NR. Pressing power button with power cord attached gives two lights on front edge (switch and power), and the light on the power button, for about 8 seconds, they go out for about 4 seconds and come back on. The fan does not start. There is no activity from the hdd. The memory modules have been reseated. The battery has been removed, power button held down for 30+ seconds, and cord reinstalled. I have a completely black screen. After work tomorrow, I intend to substitute a known good hdd and reassess. Any other suggestions? I understand this model has a horrible track record of GPU overheating issues and if left in this semi-on state, the exhaust area does heat up tremendously even though there is no functioning display. Is there a way to test the GPU? The GPU being bogus would not stop the hdd from spinning up would it? I have a CQ60-422DX that runs very cool and am hoping this unit will make like Lazarus and get with the program.
