Hi,
from what you have mentioned it seems that, it can either be one of the following situation
1) you see the power light, hp/compaq logo and the windows startup logo but don't see any logon screen or desktop

2) you don't even see the hp/compaq logo at startup but only see the power light




1) this can mean your display dripers may be corrupt,
what you should do is restart the system and keep tapping F8 from the moment you see the compa/hp logo when you see a menu you will be given the option to start in safe mode select safe mode and press enter, see if you are able to see the desktop now if yes
just go to start menu >run> type in without quotes "devmgmt.msc" > ok > in here click on display adapters> right click on the entry below it select uninstall > after uninstall retsart the system , now when the system boots the system will detect your display adapter and try to load the drivers for it. now you have to follow through with the hard ware wizard and install the drivers.

2) in this case when the system is not even completing post that means there is some hard ware that is stopping it from post

take out the battery from the system and now try to start the system using AC adapter, if it doesn't work then take out all the external pheripherals attached to the system only if you are comfortable doing that
take out the Ram, hard disk, optical media drive and plugin cards that you have and then try to start the system on Ac adapter

if it does start, put one thing in at a time like

try starting it with RAM in,
then ram and hard drive in
then other things one at a time

and the time it stops posting agian it means the last thing that you have entered is faulty and was not allowing the system to post same goes for desktop

but you can check this only if you are comfortable doing it if you are not then you should check with compaq hp technical support also if you are under warranty don't do it on your own check with their technical support.

Further Queries are welcome

Wont connect to external display windows 7


You can switch to an external monitor or data projector by two methods. 1. Connect the external monitor to the laptop's video port, power up the external monitor first and the laptop. The video information will automatically switch to the external monitor. 2. If you power up the laptop first then you can switch the video output to the external monitor by pressing the Fn key and one of the Function keys, depending upon your make and model laptop. You can also toggle between the external monitor or both LCD screen plus the external monitor or back to LCD screen only by pressing the Fn key plus one of the function key a few times. Here is a list of key combinations for some of the laptops :- IBM ThinkPad = Fn + F7 HP and Compaq = Fn + F4 Toshiba = Fn + F5 Dell = Fn + F8

Hi:
It sounds like the inverter or backlight has failed on your laptop. Try to connect an external monitor to the laptop to verify this. You should be able to toggle between the two displays by holding your function key down, then hitting the crt/LCD button. If the external monitor works good, then you have had a hardware failure.

My screens broken how do i get the picture to work on a monitor


  1. Identify the VGA port on the laptop (check all sides) It'll look like this:785661a.jpeg
  2. Connect your Monitor cable to this port and turn it on.
  3. Now you need to switch your laptop display to the external monitor. Identify the Function key (F1 to F12) that has a monitor icon on it. Press Fn + that function key with the monitor icon. Wait 5 to 10 seconds and check if the display comes on on your monitor. If not press the key combination again.

Not transfering display but can't see whats going on.


Power up the monitor first then the laptop and the video will switch automatically to the monitor.
The other way, when the laptop is powered up press the Fn key + F4 key, This toggles the video output between the LCD and the external video connector.

gcmichaud:
Take out the RAM and turn on the computer. It should freak out. If not, your motherboard has gone. The good news: your data is safe. If it does beep like crazy, turn the computer off, remove the battery AND ac, reinstall the RAM and hold the power button down continuously for a good, slow count of thirty. Plug in the AC and try again. Let me know if you have any other questions/problems. I'll monitor this thread.

jslo:
It sounds like your power supply died. It's a pretty common problem. Can you get a friend to lend you their power supply? If so, hook it up and see if everything works. My bet is yes.
