Sounds like a hard Drive problem. A virus actually. The Best thing to do if Safe Mode Failed is the Repair Your system, to do this insert your XP CD and wait until it says 'Press any key to boot CD' Press any key and follow instructions to repair windows. If it works, run a virus scan immediately. If Not, take it itno a computer technitian to look at it if you want the stuff on your Hard Drive, of if you feel you don't care too much just wipe the Hard Drive and Re-Install Windows XP. just do the same thing as repair but instead follow the instructions for Installing XP and choose either Clear or Erase Hard drive if you don't want the info or choose don't clrear or Erase if you really want stuff from your hard drive, But run a Virus scan Immediately asap.

Hope This Helps

Hi i have a presario cq60-114em, on power up i get the fan coming on straight away, the power and wireless led on, black screen,the hdd led flashes 2x then a pause then flashes 2x and carrys on with this...


1st Steve I would remove the hard drive and power up and see if you can enter the bios by tapping either F2 or Del keys. If you can get into the bios then great. Shut down and refit the HDD. Try and enter the bios again and see if the hdd is recognised. If not then the hdd is finished. If it does show then your windows installation is corrupt. Try starting it up with your windows cd in the drive and point the bios startup to see the drive a 1st boot device. If this works then try and perform a repair of windows from the disk.

Good luck

If your laptop appears to boot up and the hard disk LEDflashes, then the problem is probably a back light fault. This can be a faultyinverter or a faulty CCFL lamp.

Presario blank screen


I think this might be a common problem caused by windows sleep/hibernate not working (MS never actually got it to work well)
Try holding down the power button for 30 seconds. Wait 10 seconds, then start up again. If you get the same problem, try tapping the space bar repeatedly...
Otherwise your going to need to boot off a windows disk, and do a re-install/repair.

Screen went black...rebooted, computer seems to


Remove the battery and disconnect the power adapter for about a minute.

connect only the AC then boot it back up. If you can see the Compaq splash screen and still unable to load Windows, re install OS.

If you could not see the splash screen, too bad it could be a motherboard issue,

Hope this helps.

My hp compaq nx9010 notebook is no longer displaying the color black on the Windows xp start up page or on some of my powerpoints and videos. The color black is replaced by a redish color.


It seems that someone changed the desktop background color. point the mouse somewhere in the middle of the desktop, (away from any icons) and right click the mouse, a menu will appear with several options. The bottom one says properties. Click that. Once done another (more advanced) menu will appear with several tabs at the top. Click on the second to last tab, labled, "Appearance". Once in this tab. Toward the bottom right side of this screen you will see 2 buttons one atop another labled, "Effects", (on top), and, "Advanced", (below). Click the advanced button. A new window will pop up with the first option being desktop in a drop-down menu. To it's immediate right you will see "color 1" with a drop-down menu directly below it. That is where you will select the new background, (desktop) color. Once you have selected the new color, click OK, then apply on the remaining screen, then OK once the color is set.

Your inverter board is bad. It is time to change it.

BLACK SCREEN


don't try to turn it off then back on straight away (with the power button).. this will confuse the computer and keep it on with no back light.

try letting it power down fully before you turn it back on.

ps. if you did not turn it off in the first place then find a update for the back light driver/firmware. also known as bios update :S
