Compaq Presario CQ 20 start up problem

My Compaq Presario CQ 20 wont start - there's no start up screen at all - simply blank (black) ...
whenever i pressed the start up button, i can hear the sound of the engine running, trying to start up.
but after a short while, it'll die off, as if the engine dont have enough power to start up.
i suspect it's a hardware malfunctioning problem.
if it's so - may i know what should i do?

thank you very much for your consideration and help - i really appreciate it very much!

I have a compaq presario cq 60 to and when I turn it on it just sounds like it's going to start up and goes to a blank bluish black screen if I did it says the main screen and then it goes to that after I...


The blue screen typically would have a error message on it. I would recommend hitting the F8 key once a second after turning the computer on to get the windows diagnostic menu with choices such as safe mode. If you can select this then try a system restore point to when the computer was working properly. If you are unable to have it start up by hitting the F8 key then you either have a failing hard drive or a corrupt windows.

OK download that service manual, follow the troubleshooting procedures and you will sort your problem out in now time, i have a hunch, that your HDD, is faulty... and may need replacement. Anyway Download and use that manual, it's a generic one.. but will still work for you.
