1. the cpu may be running to hot.. do you hear a fan going on when you start your system?: as soon as you see the compaq message press f2 (I'm not sure if that's the key.. usually it's indicated at the bottom of the compaq screen then try to go into the the cmos/bios program and look for temperture information on your cpu... should be below 50 ...
2. it could also be a virus: did you install something recently?...
3. it could be a hardware problem.. did you install new memory recently.. try removing the new memory stick.
4. laptops are hard to troubleshoot so you may want to take the computer for service or get in contact with HP's representative online or over the phone, they may give you more pointer of what you can try or what you can do.
any other approach that you may take may require for you to get get the hard drive out to back up you data using the drive in another computer (may need to get an adapter or a enclosure with usb adapter but is possible) then reinstall os with the revorey partition that may still be avaliable by pressing and f key as directed also in the first compaq screen that you get to see.

My hp compaq turned off by itself and won't turn on now, it won't even show the charging light when the charger is plugged in


Remove the PC labtop battery then re insert it again.
If still not charging check the charger connector if its connected as well.
If there was no problem in the charger connector,Check the charger itself.
These all what you need to check only,no problem in your labtop.
If still not charging means one of these :
1- The BATTERY may needs to be changed .
or
2- The charger may needs to be changed.

When I turn the laptop on it powers up but there is a black screen. It's a compaq nx9110


Shut it down. Take the battery out. Unplug it. Leave the battery out then turn the computer back on. If you still have a black screen there is a hardware problem. If you have an external monitor connect it to the laptop and switch to show on external monitor. If you can see externaly then problem is cable or screen problem. If you can't see external picture then problem is most likely a chip on the motherboard. Video chip problem common on hp and compaq laptops.

Compaq notebook won't boot up


Hi

When you boot the computer back up go into Safe Mode and check to see if you can roll the computer back to the point before you installed the software.

If so this should work. If it works then run a virus scan, a defrag of the hard drive and cleans the temp files.

OR

You can do a diagnostic startup and uninstall Onecare. So once that it is uninstall ed it should be smooth sailing.

Here is a link for some startup / diagnostic software you could try after booting.

I hope this helps
