    No that did not work. It looks like the laptop is trying to boot up from the "PCI Fast Ethernet Controller v2.13 (020326)
    Media Test Failure Check Cable
    Existing PXE Rom. This shows up on the screen and then the screen goes black. The symble (-) shows up in the upper left hand corner and repeats itself with the above message on the screen.

    I am in the Phoenix BIOS Setup Utility advanced mode and there are four options:
    floppy Diskette Drive
    ATAP CD-ROM Drive
    +Hard Drive
    Network Adaptor
    At this point I am not sure what to do.

    1. Floopy Diskette Drive
    2. ATAPI CD-ROM Drive
    3. Network Adaptor

    How do I look through the sata or ide settings?

  • Jason Edinger May 11, 2010

    Try this. Take the battery out. Unplug the laptop. Hold the power button down for 10 seconds. Put the battery back in, plug it in. Try turning it on.

When you boot again, press whatever button it is to get into the bios, Delete, F10, whatever. Look for Boot Options. Make sure HDD is BEFORE Lan adapter/network.

    As long as HDD is there before network adapter, you should be able to boot.
    If it doesn't, look through the sata or ide settings and make sure those are enabled.

It sounsd like your GPU may be BGA chip and would require a re-flow/re-ball if your laptop shows graphical distortion on both monitors.

However I would first try taking the laptop apart again and double check you have connected everything properly.

Hi i have a compaq presario laptop and after it stars up the screen just goes blank


Hi there,
do you still see the compaq logo and does it show you the windows boot up screen before it goes blank?
OR
do you see anything on the screen at all after pressing the power button?
Check if the laptop is receiving power. If it has power and you can't see anything on the screen it could mean that the LCD assembly or the Video card of your laptop is bad.
If it goes to the compaq screen and then to windows logo before going out, try booting into safe mode and once there uninstall the video driver from the device manager because that means the resolution was set to something higher than the display could handle.
If it restarts after showing the compaq screen try reseating the memory, hard drive and wireless card of your computer put them one by one and try turning the compter on after each part you put back to check which component is point of failure.
Otherwise you have a bad motherboard and it may have to be replaced.
Hope this helps!

Just got cq56-115dx laptop this morning. turned it off after setting it up. Turned it back on and only have blank screen. Power shows lit up.


Hi.

Remove the AC power (charger) and then take the battery out. Plug in just the AC power supply and turn the laptop on, see if it boots up and shows a display on-screen. If it boots let it boot up and then shut it down as normal. Reinsert the battery and try as normal.
If you still get a blank screen can you then tell me if you get any post (splash) information like the Compaq Presario logo before it goes blank.


Good luck.

My compaq armada 3500 wont boot up or only shows the welcome compaq logo


I think that has to do with the BIOS if it cant boot compeletly. Try pressing the key indicated to enter into SETUP if you cant just try and look for a jumper on the motherboard that is written CMOS it may be a button or something.
