This could be a host of different culprits.
First, if you have more that one memry Dimm in the computer, removed one the restart to see if it boots. If it doesn't boot swap it out with the other memory Dimm. This will eliminate the memory. If it's not the memory, then it may be your hard drive is bad.

If you can get onto a friend's computer, do a Google search for "The Ultimate Boot Disk"
When you find it ,it will give you instructions on how to make the boot cd. Once you create the disk, you can use it to test your system board,hard drive and memory.

You have lost the operating system on the hard drive, try putting a recovery cd in to the drive and see if it will boot.

If not try a Linux boot system recovery disk, downloadable off the internet, to see if you can repair it.

Blank screen


Did it boot all the way? Do you hear the fan running, disk drive spinning? If it sounds like it booted but the display is black, try this:
When you press the power button do you hear fansrunning, hard drive spinning, lights on the computer, hear any beeps or lightsconstantly blinking, hear the DvD/CD drive click and the light on the drawer ofthe DvD/CD turn on for a second or two? If so the laptop is trying toboot or may have booted, but the screen is not showing for some reason.

Beep tones and blinking lights tells the technicians what is going on with thelaptop and why it is not booting. Most times it's a motherboard issuewhen you hear beeps or blinking lights continuous.

HP Compaq 6735s Laptop screen was blank when turned on


When you plug in the power cord is there any lights whatsoever on the laptop, where the plug goes in or on the AC Adapter of the power cord?

When you press the power button do you hear fans running, hard drive spinning, lights on the computer, hear any beeps or lights constantly blinking, hear the DvD/CD drive click and the light on the drawer of the DvD/CD turn on for a second or two? If so the laptop is trying to boot or may have booted, but the screen is not showing for some reason.

Beep tones and blinking lights tells the technicians what is going on with the laptop and why it is not booting. Most times it's a motherboard issue when you hear beeps or blinking lights continuous.

Maybe your power cord is bad if you don't get anything to happen whatsoever when you press the power button. And if that's true maybe you was operating off the battery the last time you had it on and since the power cord is bad, it was not charging the battery so the battery is drained and the power cord is bad.

Maybe you have a Static Charge Buildup. Remove the Power Cord, Remove the Battery, then Press and Hold the power button for 30 seconds. After 30 seconds plug the power cord back in (leave the battery out) and hit the power button to see if it boots. If it does, you can put the battery back in and let it charge.

The hard disk got damaged and it's dying - the boot take longer because the boot sector was damaged and it had to be relocated.
Create a reinstall disk with the utility HP has installed in the laptop, buy a new hard disk and install it and then reinstall Windows with the disk you created.
