Re: Compaq Presario 12XL414

I've taken apart a few laptops and they are all very different and all very difficult to take apart. You would most likely need to completely disassemble almost every single component to remove the motherboard. Why do you need to remove the board? I want to warn you away from even trying unless absolutely necessary because if you need help getting started with this project, the chances of you removing the MB and ever having the laptop operate again are slim.

I have compaq presario cq45. When I start laptop First start fan for 5 Second then blink caps lock and num lock LED .and display not visible.I chack RAM that is proper ..

If the fan stops after 5 seconds and you can't get a display your motherboard, GPU, or CPU are shot. Remove the ram, and power it on if you hear no system beeps your, GPU, or motherboard are shot. Probably cheaper to replace laptop then repair, just remove your HDD, so you or someone else can retrieve your information for you.

Compaq monitor blank screen

If its a blank screen all the time that never shows anything not even a screen at startup then it sounds like the internal cable from your monitor to the motherboard of the laptop is unplugged or possibly broken. You need to remove the keyboard from the laptop to check this.

I recommend bringing the laptop to a professional if you have no experience with opening laptops.

i'm afraid you wont be able to play any games on this unit as it has only an onboard graphics adapter runing at 8MB minimum and probably 32MB maximum as it is being shared with your system memory, so there wont be any change if you download the latest drivers as they only work the graphics not upgrade them. even some of the latest notebooks cannot play games very well unless they are more expensive models with dedicated graphics cards and not onboard graphics.
