Screen will not stay upright, can it be fixed?

I have a Compaq Presario 1500. The screen/lid is evidently sprung, it has to lean against something to stay upright. What can I do to correct this? (Please do not share my email address)

Hi! This solution is very late, but I just came across the original post. Maybe it will still do you some good.

You need to replace the display hinges. There are vendors online who sell them (www.blueraven.com for one) but they are expensive. Right now there is a vendor on eBay offering a set cheap. If you see this solution soon enough, check it out here.

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

Compac presario 1500


You need to reboot using the first disc in the series. Make sure that the AC adapter is plugged in, and check your bios settings and disable any power managment settings, in order to prevent the machine from going into standby, sleep, etc.

You should be able to make it through the entire series. If you can't, you may need to contact HP for a new set of discs, or if you have an HP authorized service provider, such as a Staples, Best Buy, etc; they can usually get the CDs a lot faster, and usually at the same cost, or maybe a little higher.

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 915US Backlight Out


First, are you sure it's the backlight and not the "inverter" or the motherboard not turning on the "brite" signal ?
Any way, to fix the backlight, you have to remove the screen from the laptop (in most cases) and then open the screens plastic case. Then, there should be a little circuit board at the bottom of the screen;that's the inverter.Disconnect both wires from it (there should be wires on each side of it).Now remove the screws holding the screen in the plastic case and lift out the screen.At the bottom edge of the screen,you'll find a piece of silver / metallic tape. remove this tape CAREFULLY . Also on the bottom edge there are tiny ( I MEAN TINY) screws at each end of the screen.Remove these carefully lift the metal cover along the bottom of the screen and the backlight is underneath this cover.

Compaq 1015v screen problems


Under the right hand hinge, the plastic hinge cover has cut into one or more wires

Unplug the battery, unplug the mains, carefully undo the 2 screws immediately under the laptop AT THE TOP in the middle undet usb / VGA socket roughly (on the base)

the plastic panel around the power on button (and volume buttons) will pop out carefully

take off the hinge covers carefully

examine the wires... solder them, insulate ... you will see the problem

the laptop "strecthed" out with the screen open strecthes the nicked wire and it disconnects... when you shut it, it reconnects

that ok mate?
