Have a Hp Compaq nc8000 ( I know I know, Get with the times). My Current Problem is the I am now seeing lines on the screen and attempts to Reboot/Shutdown are not Fixing the problem. Switching the Monitor over to external is not helping at all. I think the problem might be the video card is bad. Is the card integrated with the board and can i change it if it isnt?

It's onboard with that model. Replacing the motherboard would be the only way to make it go away.

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news.

Best of Luck!

My compaq nc8000 will try to boot up (only shows window xp, then goes to a blue screen with a lot of dots in it), but first shows zeros all across the screen not allowing you to do anything at all.

Hi, sounds like what is known as the blue screen of death. You can try reseting your operating system to an earlier time, before the problem began, by pressing the ESC or Del key during bootup, this will give you the option to boot into safe mode, from where you can attempt the reset. Or you can insert the CD that came with your compaq and perform a system restore. Both of these options will not remove any saved data.

The screen on my HP compaq nc8000 laptop goes blacks usually after the screen has been closed. the screen is very dark after is hardly visible except when squinting. does anyone know what the problem is or...

The culprit will be the inverter board of your LCD screen that drives the backlight, my nc8000 shows the same symptoms after 6 years of heavy daily usage. After pressing the LID sensing button near the right hinge the backlight usually remains on, but sometimes you have to press it several times under a minute once it finally stays on. The proper fix would be to disassemble the screen and replace the inverter board, as the LCD and the CCFL backlight tubes are perfectly fine in my case.

On how to remove the screen from the laptop, you can get help from this HP guide:
(it's in section 5-35, that starts on page 128)

Unfortunately, I can't help you out on the other part, on how to disassemble the screen itself (but I suspect it has 4 or 6 screws under the rubber "feets" on its front), and I can't help you out in fixing the inverter board itself either...
If you want to fix the board yourself, you have to be able to wield the soldering iron perfectly, and your goal will be to replace some capacitors (they are usually bulging, so you can identify them being the culprit by the naked eye too).
The other option is to order a replacement inverter board, and simply swap the bad with the new one, it is still more economical than to buy a new display assembly as a whole; some chinese manufacturers are available, but I bet you can find some source more closely to your current location, just google for:

Hi I have a 2 inch wide vertical white band on my screen.It is faint and other screen material can be seen through it.


This is a sign your monitor is getting ready to go out. The only fix is a new lcd. Check with your local authorized Compaq/HP dealer for more information.

Good Luck

Compaq nc8000 won't start please i wont to know the problem on the mother board after swicth on it will go off after 4 second and it wil not even show anything on the screen and the fan too will go off.

It could very likely be the motherboard causing the problem, in which case you're best off just getting a new computer rather than replacing or repairing the board, but it could also be a power issue.

Try turning the computer on with the battery installed and the AC adapter disconnected, and then try it with the AC adapter connected and the battery removed -- does it show the same symptoms both times?
