Question about Compaq Presario 5000 PC Desktop

1 Answer

My laptop turns on but then I get a blank screen.

When I was working on my laptop one day I accidently reformatted my computer. It still worked. Later I bought a new memory module, it did not fit so I put the it had back in the slot. I then upgraded and installed Windows Vista. It worked only for a short time. Now when I turn on my computer it doesn't do anything. It gets as far as to where it asks you how you want to start your computer and then all I get is a blank screen. What do I need to do to get it working again.

Put in your windows vista CD and boot the PC. It will boot from the CD and you should be able to select a recovery/repair option. Otherwise I believe you can reinstall windows without loosing your data.

You really should backup your data and do a clean install of Vista.

Hi. Screen blank for Samsung NPN130? Was working but suddenly went blank but computer working


Hi

have a look on the top row of keys on the keyboard and check if you accidently press the screen off key could be one of these keys F3 or F4 or F5

it may be worth trying to start up pressing the F8 key as soon as you press the power on key
and if you can read the writing on the screen then choose the last known good configuration
and see if windows can correct the problem when it restarts

Computer boots fine but the monitor is blank


if the monitor works fine on your laptop, the problem definitely is at the computer, possibly with the video card (if it is using one). it could have loose connection, or parts might have damages. it seems the problem is intermittent so electronic component of the video card could have parts partially damages or leaky components.
if your still using the motherboards built in video out put, try installing a new video card.
