I have a compaq presario cq 60 to and when I turn it on it just sounds like it's going to start up and goes to a blank bluish black screen if I did it says the main screen and then it goes to that after I...


The blue screen typically would have a error message on it. I would recommend hitting the F8 key once a second after turning the computer on to get the windows diagnostic menu with choices such as safe mode. If you can select this then try a system restore point to when the computer was working properly. If you are unable to have it start up by hitting the F8 key then you either have a failing hard drive or a corrupt windows.

Hi i have a compaq presario laptop and after it stars up the screen just goes blank


Hi there,
do you still see the compaq logo and does it show you the windows boot up screen before it goes blank?
OR
do you see anything on the screen at all after pressing the power button?
Check if the laptop is receiving power. If it has power and you can't see anything on the screen it could mean that the LCD assembly or the Video card of your laptop is bad.
If it goes to the compaq screen and then to windows logo before going out, try booting into safe mode and once there uninstall the video driver from the device manager because that means the resolution was set to something higher than the display could handle.
If it restarts after showing the compaq screen try reseating the memory, hard drive and wireless card of your computer put them one by one and try turning the compter on after each part you put back to check which component is point of failure.
Otherwise you have a bad motherboard and it may have to be replaced.
Hope this helps!

Hey i just break the bios password takin the bettery out and then my laptop start showing windows logo and showing blue screen with errors and countinue restarting


you may be able to reset the windows installation by repeatedly pressing F8 during boot. This is only possible if you have created a rescue disk during the initial installation of windows.
the second (most likely to work) solution is reinstalling windows from scratch.

Will not show anything after log in


Just before the Windows logo screen appears press F8 and chose "Last Known Good Configuration", see what happens it might fix any driver related issue. If not you can try "safe mode" from the F8 menu and see does that boot.

Blank screen


hit ctrl alt del at the same time, when the task manager comes up, click on the applications tab...Then choose "new task" type explorer.exe into the box, this will launch windows explorer which is your desktop. If this does not work, type f8 at startup and boot into safemode. In safemode, choose start, then run and then type in chkdsk then restart the computer and let the check disk command process.

Blank/black screen at power on


This is hopefully a possible fix. I have encountered a similar problem with windows xp and vista. the fix I found that will eliviate this problem and a startup-reboot-startup-reboot... If you have your original windows (xp or vista) CD lounch it like you would do to do a system install. As the installation starts it will show ask you if you would like to do a recovery using the recovery console, just press ESC and go on. Press the F8 to accept the license. If Windows is not completly broke, it will find the original installation on your hard drie. It will ask if you want to repair. Press the R key and windows will reinstall your operating system, without destroying your software or data. After it is done the system will go to the windows startup screen. You will need your windows product key located on your machine or on the original software packaging.
I hope this will fix your problem.

Lwhen laptop is turned on it only gives a blank screen.


Cold boot the PC by holding the power button for at least 5 seconds.

Hit F8 before the windows logo appears , select Last Known Good Congiuration. Try booting.

If same issue , try again , this time select safe mode , this should allow you to get in and undo any changes you made.
