compaq laptop starting

  Dasmad 23:47 01 Oct 05

I have a Compaq Presario laptop, still running win 98se, and have made the mistake of unplugging it in the process of hibernating (it seemed to have hung up), with a low battery. I now cannot restart it by any combination of switching/mains in/mains out/battery in/battery out.
Is there any solution........please advise

Gis the full model number,I'll have a hunt around the Compaq site,see if there's a "reset" switch(on my old IBM,its on the underside,next to the expansion slot cover)

good idea's a 1246 serial no. 1V9ACTS2POGM, I think, or 3882B015.
thanks for the help - just to know there might be a reset switch is comforting !

Haven't been able to locate anything that would indicate the presense of a reset switch.Can you check the AC Adapter is definitely outputing power,Is the Power indicator light (LED) on or off? etc.

This is the Compaq 1246 Notebook mfg website,see if you can find anything to indicate what else to try.
