    I have a Compaq Presario V5000 that won't power up. The fan powers up for just a half second and then shuts down again, but the power light stays on. There is NO post or boot. No screen. It did this intermittently at first but is now permanent. I've done all the power options - no battery, etc. This seems to be a common problem with HP/Compaq laptops. I replaced the CPU to no effect. Is it worth replacing the motherboard or should I just scrap it?
