My HP Compaq FS7600 went on the blink (bought 1 year ago) but makes a clicking noise. I tried it on another PC ...same problem. Power light is on but blank screen. Is it worth trying to fix? Rich

    Not only my "Compaq: FS7600" monitor makes a clicking sound & shows a blank screen, but there is no LED light indicated on the monitor.

    I have the same problem: indicator light glows green, screen is blank, when it went out yesterday while using, a bright vertical line in the center of the screen appeared, then it went blank. When restarting no image appears but a 'clicl' is heard after a few seconds, sounds like the overload switch used in electric motors.

    Same problem here...piece of junk...I had an old Apple monitor that lasted over 10 years, this Compaq barely lasted two!

It happened that to me last year. After 2 weeks of cracking sound symptoms, my monitor begun to blackout - no video signal but the indicator light is still available. I checked it inside using my tester, one of its transistor was burned-out. I tried to replace it and its working up to now. Possible cause of this is probably overuse of monitor without proper ventilation & cooling causing electronic components to overheat. Since I will not be able to actually check your monitor, the best solution for this is bring your monitor to a qualified TV/CRT technician in your area for proper diagnosis. He's the right expert and the second opinion to that kind of problem.

I just shook the monitor a bit and after some banging it started up...
This could support an overheating problem b/c shaking would cool it or there could be some loose component inside

My HP Compaq 6735s.I got it as a present from my

I hate Compaq since HP bought them out yrs ago. Anyways a few suggestions.
1 unplug it and take the battery out and wait say 5 minutes put it back in and all and turn on. Still nothing? Try leaving the battery out and just plug it in and turn on..... No? Put any disk in the drive and try both with battery and plugged in and without battery.

I've had this irritation with my Dell a few times. I turn it on and nothing but a blank screen. If you have anything plugged into it such as phone or other usb devices unplug them. they do sometimes interfere. The dvd/cd drive Did the same to me even when I first bought my unit but after a while of just leaving a disk in the drive it quit. I asked about that problem myself and it's nothing to worry about. If the problem does persist I would suggest running a few system scans updating drivers and scanning for spyware trojans malware virus' and so on. these can cause such problems

Blank screen, no light indicating monitor is on, makes clicking noise when i click to turn on. It is a hp mx705.

It is either the power supply or the deflection circuit.
If you can read electronic circuits and know how to use a DVM. Check the power supply voltages and the deflection circuit for any short..
Best of luck.

Just started up my Compaq Evo N600c about an hour ago as usual, the word COMPAQ came up(as it does) and then the screen went black, and around 40 short, thick, vertical, white lines appeared. Slowly they...

no photos presented of screen messing up, (sadly)
compaq = old, too old, why mess with so old a box/?
the screen is bad, and $100 is 5 times what it is worth as a whole.
find a PC 10 years or newer so its VIABLE and supported
and do not buy XP or VISTA anything,both are DEAD now.
Black with lines. (LCD problems, ('damaged")
most times means bad screen.
does the external screen work, ? at the 15pin jack there, called VGA.?
using and external screen (plugged in)
when did this PC last run good. 5 years ago?

using an external screen, re-install the unstated OS.

it came with WIN98 or XP (what it has now, click system in control panel and read what it is)
both those 2 are Dead OS/s now... dead and Virus magnets .

oddly HP has not deleted the over 10 year old support page
as most are..... that old. (you are very lucky, its like 1% chance this.)

you will need to re-Install the OS<

the media kits are here, if still suppoorted..

does this COMpaq, have the hot key F11
that when pressed at power on , wakeup the system refresh?

Black Screen Compaq Presario

Do you see the BIOS splash screen or anything?
Try booting into safe mode by pressing F* as soon as you power on the computer. If the monitor works, then it is a bad driver. Roll back to a previous restore point, boot to last known good coonfiguration. Last Known good configuration is available from the same as the safe mode screen.

If this is helpful, please comment and rate. Have any other questions, please let me know.

It sounds like the hdd has failed. When you try to boot can you hear the hdd attempting to spin up? Best solution if everything else checked out would be to replace the hdd. Hope this helps & please remember to rate my answer. Thanks.

i think maybe somebody has tried to update the bios and failed to do so more than likely rendering the laptop useless, you can try locating the cmos battery, remove it and replace and try again, but i don't hold much hope, sorry!
