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.

I've had my compaq presario cq61 for about 2-3 years. A while back it would occasionally have a kind of shaky/blinky screen but just in the past week it's like the screen has stopped working.


The problem may be due the graphics card or data cable or backlighting.

The data cable can be severed over time though opening and closing the display. This can be replaced.
The backlighting/inverter dies, some-times the windows desktop screen can be seen if one looks carefully. This can also be replaced.

Try connect your notebook to another computer's monitor via VGA or HDMI out.

If this works then the problem lies with your LCD screen.

Take care!

When i open the lid of my presario F700 it does not automatically show the screen. I have to move the lid over and over and over again to different points to get the screen to show.


In this regard there is something happen on the video card cable underneath on the hinge of the laptop. I have also Presario laptop that has same issue that you encountered.If you can able to open the laptop's hinge to check the video cable connection then you can check on it by resetting the connnection though. If your not able to do so either to go in the computer shop or have to call HP/Compaq for assistance. Thank you.

Laptop screen goes dark.


Is your computer setup to go to sleep when you close the lid?

Click on start -->control panel-->power options and then check the option that says choose what closing the lid does. You have to change this setting to 'do nothing' if you want the computer to stay on when you close the lid.

Screen flashes on Compaq laptop


It may be the cable that attaches behind the screen is loose. If you type in your model# and "lcd replacement" in Google you will often find a tutorial on how to take it apart. Patience though our you will break something!

Compaq presario 2200 screen stay dark


sounds like the inverter has gone, the only way to test this is to remove the laptop lid, remove the bezel (front plastic cover) please take care not to crack or splitt the plastics, then get an electical tester and test the inverter coil to make sure a current runs through it, if it doesn't its the coil, if it does you need a new inverter, the coil is located under the plastic sheath

good luck

Compaq Presario V4000 (v4118AP) right hinge broken


I had the same problem, they are very easy to fix, I did a search earliar and found some on the link below.

You do not need to dismantle to base, you have some star screws under the battary and one either side that loosens the small panel near the screen (where the power button is). The screen cover has screws under the plastic covers then just unclips, be gentle. after that it is self evident

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.
