Default Laptop: Yay! No worky: boo!

I just recieved a P3 500MHZ with 12Gb HDD and 64M of RAM, and when I try to lught it on...there's nothing at the screen

Could this be because I use another power plug to light it on? Or, do I absolutely need the Compaq plug?

BTW, model is: CompaQ Armada M300

That is probably your problem! The input power must match or system auto shuts down. Check the model # and then go to compaq and see the model of power plug and then do a search for that and you will find what the output power is and match that and then see if you can get it up.
The other thing is to check for a battery replacement and use a fully charged battery to start it up with and see if it comes on.
