Compaq Presario SR1610NX won't turn off, and won't


The problem could be a hardware problem.
You can try removing the ram to see if it's faulty otherwise I am afraid you are unlucky because could be a motheroard problem so the only solution is to bring your laptop to repair service.

If your laptop appears to boot up and the hard disk LEDflashes, then the problem is probably a back light fault. This can be a faultyinverter or a faulty CCFL lamp.

Windows won't start at bootup. Instead the fan turns on.


It sounds like your operating system has failed. Your best bet would be to use a working computer to burn a new install disc / backup disc / repair disc and then reinstall your operating system, or if possible repair it.
Have you tried plugging the VGA output into an external monitor and turning it on? Maybe your screen has just failed, if it does output to an external monitor.
You can get it into external mode if you boot it up with an external monitor connected, a USB mouse connected, and a USB keyboard. Boot up the machine (plugged in!) and close the lid right away, and it should automatically kick over. If not, try windows key and P at the same time, once the machine is "running"

Black screen, won't boot up, fan kicks on for a few seconds only, then powers down


check the display on the external monitor through the vga port, if the display is fine , then its the problem of your laptop screen, some time this is due to the cable that gives display to the screen, take it to the technician and checks there
how do you like the solution rate it please

Frozen during boot-up, keyboard still works


Sounds like the PC is running into a hardware failure and the Compaq splash screen is probably hiding some additional information. It?s been a long time since I've owned a Compaq, however, what you need to do first is eliminate the Compaq screen to show us whatever boot details it may be hiding. I seem to recall on my old Compaq (and most Dells) I had to disable the Compaq screen in the BIOS settings. Hitting the F10 key as soon as the Compaq screen appears I believe will get you into the BIOS program, however, be warned if you change anything in there by accident you will be causing yourself a world of trouble. After you get into there you want to look for the Boot selection of the menu. In there somewhere will be a setting referring to something similar to ?reveal boot details? or hide splash or Compaq screen?. If it isn?t obvious let me know, I?ll have access to an older Compaq with a similar BIOS and can give you more details. If you are able to disable the splash screen reboot the PC and watch for errors. Based on the age of the machine and past history I suspect you?ll find a boot disk or read error.
