Display problem Hi I bought this laptop Compaq Presario CQ50-115NR, and everything went well, until I was watching some videos at youtube, and suddenly the screen went to a grey color screen, I couldn't do anything, no alt+f4, no ctrl+alt+delete, nothing I had to turn off the computer and start windows normally(that happened about 3 weeks ago), and today it went to a dark green-blue color and I had to do the same thing. Can someone help me? Thanks send info to my email kamikaze_calabaza@hotmail.com

The cq50 115-NR model and design is plauged with thermal problems, the computer CANT breathe and the GPU unless tended to very early in life has a poor contact on the heatsink, and the conductor is junk. I just performed surgery on one and the GPU is cooked, If anyone ever has one of these shut off suddenly DO NOT TURN IT BACK ON! its in thermal distress and NEEDS servicing immediately.

I have horizontal lines in my compaq presario c508us notebook pc. i dont know how to fixed it.


First try connecting an external display to your computer using a cable and the VGA port and an appropriate cable (<$5)
If the display shows no problems it's the screen (most likely).
You can either have the screen replaced at a computer shop - this is likely to be in region of $100 ?) or buy a spare and do it yourself. However before you do that find out exactly what you need and how to do it. Search the internet. Some places are
the HP web page for this model, gives access to the service manual, http://support.hp.com/gb-en/product/Compaq-Presario-C500-Notebook-PC-series/3318986/model/3337791/product-info Also ask on the HP forum.

My Compaq presario f572us notebook screen turns black upon normal startup. The screen does not turn black if I start-up in the safe mode. It only when i attempt to start windows normally. Everything loads...


i also have a compaq presario f572us that's been having similar problems. when i went onto the hp website i saw that apparently they've been having similar problems with this type of computer as they offer free repairs for 2 years after you bought it. you should probably check if this works for you too

Yeah I dont think they are allowed to make xp drivers even if they wanted to. Try getting all the information about your computer as you can, video card, audio card, nic, ect. Then download separate drivers for everything. If things dont work out just go back to vista or linux, (fedora, ubuntu, kubuntu, red hat, ect.) linux is better anyways and its just fun to use.
