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!

My compaq presario 500 wont boot up?compaq screen comes on then, blank screen,a little cursor in the upper lefthand side


virus is the cause. You are going to have to put in your windows cd and boot from it. Then do a "repair" and hopefully recovery your system if not you are going to have to do a total system wipe.

Why won't my HPSR2150NX boot up


Many possible causes. Hard disk could have gone bad or simply unplugged for one. Do you get any errors on screen?

If the screen stays blank, and no lights come on, the power supply could have gone bad. That happens, too.

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.
