Your Back light has most likely gone out.. There is a possibility that your resolution may be to high or that you have it set to output on an external display... If its your res. you should be able to hit F8 at startup to enter safe mode... If it is the external display you need to hit FN + the key that has a little blue or yellow monitor (its a different key on each laptop)

Compaq presario V5000 laptop blank screen


Does the hard drive light blink like there is activity? It sounds like your laptop is not posting. Unfortunately on a laptop if it fails to post it is likely the motherboard..

I would verify first that you Cannot get the external monitor to work by using the function + Keys on your keyboard to enable the secondary display (Usually something like FN+F4) FN being the key on the lower left of your keyboard between ctrl and alt typically..

If you cannot get it to display, Try an ESD Discharge.. Basically unplug the power brick from the laptop, Remove the battery and try turning it on.. While trying to turn it on contact your fingers on the metal prongs that protrude from the where the battery was on the laptop. This will discharge any built up static electricity from the laptop. Try hooking it all back up and booting.. Good luck

When turning the laptop on, it's not booting up. The screen is black and the green light stays solid, though I can hear the fan.


First thing you should try is:

reseat the memory chips (try booting just one single chip in one slot, if that doesn't work switch the module to the other slot)

Also I'd recommend booting without battery pack installed.

Let me know what happens or if anything changes with the above.
