Question about Compaq TFT5010R 15" LCD Monitor
No photos of screen posted, makes this hard to guess.
carbon dated at 2002 , its 15 years old and the CCFL is not burned out, now that is amazing ! but I bet the CCFL is dim and yellow.
so when that happens all colors are no yellow added.
ok you proved the display is bad. or set wrong (NICE JOB)
did you push the screens menu key and see all those settings inside.?
on the last screen of most hp, OSD screens is a reset.
did you try that, reset to factory setting. do you have the users guide.
or buy a new screen at walmart for $50? (a fraction of cost to fix yours, for sure)
that monitor is old a COMPAQ in fact
1024 x 768 (limited here, and very very poor that)
HP has minimal support , mostly none on this old mon.
the screen is worth $20 working or $5 not.
so why not buy $60 new one.
and the age of high resolution ! then get rid of XP, its a virus magnet.
id do this, id go here and get a far better monitor with LED back lamps that do not go dim or turn yellow.
even free shipping now.
now the fiddling answers, just a few. im reading your manual to you.
ok./ page 14
first is OSD
try the 2 cooler temperatures yet>?
or page 15 the factor RESET?
or the autoadjust button?

From what you've told us, It sounds like your LCD screen. The first thing to do is to to beg, borrow or steal a desktop monitor and plug it in to the proper port on the laptop. Turn it on and bring the system up. If this works, you can be pretty sure that you have nailed the problem. Once you've confirmed the problem, you might want to try to open it up to check the LCD cable and connector. Disconnect and reseat the connector and look for any cuts or abrasion on the LCD cable. If these actions don't get the display working, you'll probably need a new LCD. If you need more help on this, just let me know.
By the way, you did a very good job of describing the problem. Kudos to you...

SOURCE: Problem with the monitor
The three boxes represent the built-in diagnostics of the monitor. The letters G is green, B is blue and R is for red, the 3 color guns of the picture tube of your monitor. The words "Self Test" indicates that it is in diagnostic mode since it has powered up, it is also then expecting a video signal from a source to be coming in; the display "Check Your PC And Signal Cable" indicates that it is not receiving any video signal from the source which is your PC or more specifically the PC's video card; and the display "Monitor Working" indicates that the diagnostic has determined that nothing is wrong with itself and therefore it has got to be your PC that is in question. The intermittent appearance of the boxes is when the diagnostics restarts itself and eventually finds the same problem.
To determine if it is the PC or the monitor, use another PC (even a laptop with matching VGA output) and try it with your Compaq monitor, see it it will work or alternately, try a different monitor to connect to your PC. The outcome will determine which is at fault.
If you have determined/verified that it is indeed the PC, you should focus on the video/graphics card. In some PC models/versions, the graphics/video is built-in to the motherboard and you should check the memory since this is shared. The only way is to replace either.
Hope that this be of some help/idea. Pls post back how things worked out or should you need additional information.
Good luck and kind regards.

Most laptops have vents on the bottom of the laptop and if these are restricted or blocked the CPU will overheat and a thermal shutdown will occur. The laptop will not boot up again until the CPU has cooled down, continual use of the laptop this way will lead to a breakdown of the CPU.
I suggest that the laptop be placed on a hard flat surface on the bed (better still on a desk and your daughter will be in a proper sitting posture position - no good for her back with the laptop in bed) to ensure good air flow to the laptop.
