    Further describing the symtom. When I pushed the ON button, I got lights and fans sounds, but the hard disk seemed not running, and no further response from any keystroke or mouse click.



    As for the repair store, can you recommend somewhere in Toronto? Thanks.

If you need to send your PC out for service I would highly recommend CompUSA in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. You can contact them 954-565-1189. This is not the old CompUSA, but one of the stores bought out by Tigerdirect.com last year. Their technical staff is fantastic and very knowledgible and they have very fair prices.
I would first try a couple of things first, though. First, do you hear the fan(s) or hard drive start up and do any lights come on at all? If so, try holding down the F10 key and push the 'on' button. Continue holding down the F10 key until the 'Compaq' screen comes up. You should then get a screen that allows you to choose 'Last known configuration that worked'. (Use the arrow keys and enter button as your mouse won't work on this screen.) If this works, Windows should now boot normally. Go immediately to and 'right click' on My Computer. Go down and 'left click' on Properties. Choose the 'Hardware' tab, then click on 'Device Manager'. Do you see an exclaimation mark next to any listing? If so - right click on that device and choose 'update driver' then just follow the default choices.
If you have no signs of life (no lights or sounds) when you try to start the PC, it's probably a bad power supply (inside) & that probably means a new main board.
If you get lights and sounds (fans, etc.) like it's running normally, but you can't see the screen, it may need a new 'back-light bulb or new screen - probably cheaper than replacing PC.

    When I need parts I generally order from tigerdirect.com (based in Miami,Florida - 1-800-800-8300). They are very reasonable and usually quite fast. You probably need a hard drive. Your PC's manufacturer can tell you the biggest size your motherboard will support. There are just a few screws to replace your hard drive and it 'snaps' in place. You will need to re-install your Windows though. If you don't have back up discs, Tigerdirect is also by far the cheapest for a new O/S. If you need any help please let me know! This is a fast easy repair usually only requiring a phillips screwdriver.

Compaq presario v3000 display problem


Hello,

the problem might be from the screen or the screen bulb.

Connect your laptop to an external monitor and see if any display will come up.

If there is a display, then the problem is either from your screen or from the screen board, or screen bulb.

I would advice that you take your laptop to a repairer so that the fault can be rectified.

Good luck.

Many HP/Compaq laptops are experiencing problems where the system board is not supplying enough power to the periperals. All kinds of problems can occur, like dead Wifi, blank screens, or even a complete inability to startup. The good news is that HP may be willing to fix it, even if it's out of warranty.

I Have a Compaq V3000 Laptops. The display is very dim. HELP!!


It miight be the backlight for this unit. It all depends on whether the screen came with the backlight. There is a remote chance that the display circuitry on the motherboard is faulty too. Try to plug a monitor into the VGA port and check to see if it is dim there too.
