Computer wont boot

I have a compact evo 1020v and it wont boot up.When I push the power button the power light says its on but the screen stays black and there is no boot up sound. I removed the hard drive in hope that might help but it didnt work. there is still power to the fan. when i boot it up the dvd drive makes some noise. i have tried removing one of the ram chips but that didnt work either i have also tried hooking it up to an external monitor but nothing works.

Try disambling the system. Clean it with a wind blower. Check BIOS battery capacity. Replace if possible. Power on the laptop. Do you hear humming sound from hard disk ? If you hear sssssssshhhhh sound from hard disk; it's OK. Replace RAM with new one. If problem still exists Than change main board. Hope that not happen. Keep informing.

My toshiba laptops lights come on when i push the power button, but the screen remains black. why wont my computers screen come on


do you hear a beep when you turn on the computer???, does it seam to power on???, it could be a defective inverter (part that produce the back light of the LCD panel), try plugging an external monitor to see if you have a picture, if so than the LCD panel is defective (LCD it self or INVERTER) if not than it could be the computer it self that wont BOOT, try removing all components (DVD drive, battery, mouse, etc...) see if it turns on...

I defragged my computer, restarted, and now my monitor won't come on. When on button pushed, get a green power light but the monitor stays black - cannot get anything on screen :( Helllllpppp!


Please try booting with your windows DVD and see if you screen loads, on that boot DVD you should see an option to repair install, try that. But if after booting to your DVD you see your screen come up, just try a regular restart again before doing a system repair.

I have a acer travelmate 290 and when i push the power button he start and right after this the processor stop (wont boot) and the light of the cd at the top of keyboard stay open please help me...


It could be many reasons. But worst one could be CPU fan failure. If your CPU fan is not working properly then your computer wont boot but most imp thing is, it could damage your processor coz of overheating.
Another reason may be faulty ram, motheboard problem, hardware failure etc.
so cant say for sure but make sure ur fan is cooling ur processor.
Hope it helps
