Question about Compaq Presario 2190US Notebook

1 Answer

Harddrive light not working, laptop is hung on compaq screen

I have read partial problems about this laptop
what were you all doing when your's went down?
i was deleting programs off mine, and the power cord being loose, moved just alittle and cut the power off in mid reboot,
when the laptop rebooted, all i get is the compaq screen, with opts for esc, F2, and F12, the set up doesnt happen after hitting F2, just says Settings and sits there.
I dont have a recovery Cd or windows xp Cd, I tried to create a boot disk from my PC computer, but the Cd ran, but nothing happened.
I need to know what and how you guys got your notebook fixed.
Thanks

Laptop screen has gone blank


I assume that your laptop's display has been damaged. Are you sure that other things are working normally? If other components are working, then problem will be with the display unit. Try to repair or replace with new one.

My compaq presario x-1000 hard drive light and dvd rom light flashes. Won't boot up.


Try disconnecting the harddrive from the case and then place it back in. if that doesn't help you may have a faulty drive, hows warranty? Compaq / HP would fix it for you free if you still have warranty.

let me know.

( Dell xps m1530 laptop ) Monitor blank, powers up but screen won't come on.


It ISN'T the LCD screen. Since you diagnosed with an external VGA monitor, you now know the problem is the laptop.

(When you connect an external VGA monitor to a laptop, you are bypassing the Video Cable, and LCD screen. You are connected directly to the laptop )

The basic Windows files aren't being found. The boot files. This may mean a bad Harddrive.

Do you have the Restoration CD Disk? Laptop on insert it into the optical drive tray, close the tray.
When asked choose - Repair. (Non-Destructive Installation)

If a checkdisk is done, you have bad sectors on the harddrive.
There IS a special procedure in replacing a harddrive.

Ctrl+Alt+Del to restart error


Is it a black screen right when you boot your computer? If so this could be a fatal disk error and the harddrive has crashed.

There is no easy fix other than to replace the harddrive.

Try booting into the BIOS Screen and resetting to factory defaults. If that fails suggest swapping the hard drive out and re-install the Operating System - Save your old data and migrate the data off the old drive. You can buy an external drive adapter to connect the harddrive to a USB port to migrate you data.
Good Luck!
