Re: laptop will not boot up

Whenever any of my clients say the word "Burnt" & "Smell" in the same sentance with reference to their PC's I always shudder... This unit almost certainly has to go to the "Shop" for repair. When you do so ensure ya get a firm FREE "Quote" and an explanation B4 proceeding.

Compaq presario evo 1015v

sounds like a bad screen this might be able to be remedied by hooking the laptop straight to a computer monitor threw the ports provided in the back
also you could have bumped something loose inside like a video card if any cards or memmory comes loose this will give you black screen of death the laptop will have to opened and cards pressed down gently
theres the solution of your power supply on the laptop went out and you need a replacement
if power supply went out it doesnt hurt your comp it just makes it hard to run

Help compaq ex2200 wont turn on

You obviously have power, as lights and at least some text means power is connected ok, as you said. It may be a booting issue then. What OS is running on it when it did run???

Compaq Presario 1245

you could try booting on battery instead of mains and see what happens, also could the screen be switched off ? If you have access to another monitor, you could try plugging it in to see if the video output is ok. ( some laptops have a facility to switch off the screen display for security etc )

Compaq Presario 1245 doesn't start up

Most laptops have a video connector that you can use to connect you laptop to an external monitor. connect an external monitor to your laptop and see if anythig comes up on the external monitor.Your laptop has a key to switch between it's own screen and the external monitor.When you use the external monitor ,you'll have to use this key to switch to the monitor.Your battery should'nt matter if the laptop is running on AC.Let me know what happens and we'll go from there.

Evo N1015v lcd screen goes dark after booting pc

Sgta, you have the inverter problem that hadrian had fixed. You just need a new inverter.

Hadrian on the other hand quite possibly has a blown CCFL tube. This is the light tube inside the panel that projects the light.
These even if blown, can still last a minute or two before cutting out.
Thats the good news.
The bad news is it lives inside the panel, and not alot of places will attempt to open the panel to replace it. This is possibly the highest risk procedure for anyone who works on LCDs since the slighest amount of damage to the controller tabs inside the panel that connect to the controller board and it's finished.
Safest bet (and probably cheapest) get a dead laptop from eBay with a faulty motherboard and swap out the screen. You will also get other useful parts from the donor system to keep for the future.
