I have a compaq presario CQ61, when I try to start the computer nothing happens except that the caps lock is continuous blinking. Need help to solve this problem. Thanks!

Sorry, the motherboard died. Since this is an older model finding a spare motherboard for it will be difficult and costly. Better just sell this one for parts and get another used but functioning laptop.

Motherboard on my sony VGN-AR71M NEEDS REPLACEMENT

It maybe repairable... needs a New BIOS Chip. This is a Local Job for a Tech... my guess $250.
Motherboard Costs more Labor about the same... $350 is a guess.

Search a Local Repair shop certified in SONY Laptops... :)

Laptop screen is green what does that mean?

There could be a number of reasons as to why this is happening. First, if this is happening from the moment you turn it on, than you are looking at either a defective inverter or LCD pane (some inverters are integrated into the panel, others are separate replaceable parts starting at about $35). Secondly, if the screen goes green only once you are logged into your operating system, than you are more than likely looking at a corrupt graphics driver. Just go to the vendors site and download the latest driver for your make and model and install and that should resolve your problem. Lastly, if it is neither a driver or LCD/inverter problem than you are looking at a much more expensive repair option, the system board. Most graphics cards are soldered on to the system board and are not replaceable (except in higher end models), a new system board could run you as much as $800 (cheaper on eBay, but I would not trust their reliability). An LCD panel could cost you $350 and up. One way to determine if it is the system board or LCD is to plug an external monitor to your laptop, if you can duplicate the problem, than it is the onboard graphics (system board), if not LCD panel.

My friend has a Compaq presario f600 laptop & needs to replace the motherboard. What sort of motherboard would he need to get for it please?

I think I have the same laptop that also needs a motherboard. The Presario F600 also had a m/n of F572US found on the label with serial. Looking on the Compaq site I found the motherboard is the same as for the F500 notebooks which is 442875-001. Link is at: This number is also found under the memory chips on most Compaq/Hp Laptops. Simply open memory cover and remove the memory chips and there you will find the Motherboard replacement number. Good Luck!

Well to be honest with you bud; you're probably going to save money just replacing it with a newer machine.

Laptops are built a lot different then modern desktops are. Instead of having PCI and PCX style expansion slots; everything is basically built onto the motherboard. Some laptops even have the CPU's integrated onto the motherboard instead of having a slot or socket for them.

If you're still wanting to switch out motherboards; the biggest thing is finding one that will fit. Most likely; you'll have to find one from the same model of computer.

As for the changing process; it's a little difficult as you have to take just about every screw out of a laptop to remove the motherboard. The machines are built around the motherboard in this way to reduce size and make the PC lighter and smaller for the user.

I hope this helps you out a little buddy.

A new motherboard for a old compaq presario 5240

You will need a new case and a new power supply. I would replace the memory as well.

Compaq had a tendency to make cases to only fit their boards back then. Youre better off building a new unit and starting over again.
