    Thank you, I will try that!

    Thank you for your quick reply. I was on the phone with HOP tech support last night. They ran through every test in the book and determine I needed the recovery disks as you suggested. Although, the recovery disks do NOT come with the computer!!!

    thank you, and you're right. It's not my first computer, It's my first PC.
    I am a life-long Mac user, which I've been hesitant to mention. All of this PC repair business is foreign to me as I've never had to replace an entire system and I've always been given the disks with my computers. Ah well, now I know.

Ok do this because in technical terms your Boot Record is corrupted and it happens but no big deal you can fix it...put your Windows CD into your computer. Allow it to run, it will look like it is loading but it really isn't. Just allow it run for 5 or 6 minutes and it will stop and ask you to either 1)complete install or 2)repair comupter. Click on "repair computer". This will fix your boot record and it will work as usual.

    I see that you have a Compaq computer. The store you bought it from was supposed to ask if you would like a recovery disc made. Compaq does not include it with there computers, which is wrong because all other computer companies do. The store should have made you a recovery disc, it is unprofessional not too. The only choice now is to buy another copy of the operating system....or return the computer if you just got it. And since it is your first computer lesson learned, don't walk out the store or order a computer off of the internet unless it comes with a backup...ok I'm off my soapbox now, but they did you wrong...

    I understand, I've been on a Linux kick about the last six months which has spoiled me. MAC and Linux are like brother and sister, I've had no problems and all of the software in Linux is either free or $5 or $ virus protection needed...I have to be familiar with Windows cause that's what I do, but I'm really a closet Linux/Ubuntu at home...:) and my wife is a MAC fanatic, so windows is going lower and lower on the Totem pole...

My laptop Presario. C751NR Notebook PC strats up with a blank black screen. The HP sound comes on, but nothing else. Can you please help? Marilyn

Do you or a friend have another monitor you can plug in? Do you get a picture on the external one? Also can you see a faint image on the laptop screen under bright lights? If you can you inverter board needs to be replaced.

You may just have a bad screen.
