Compaq Presario F500 Monitor Problem

I've been using my laptop for almost 2 years now and I'm having problems with my monitor. There are times where I turn it on and the monitor displays nothing, just blackscreen, so what I do is just turn it off by pressing the power button long enough til the power turns off then i turn it on again. I do this for more than five times or so until its turned on properly.
So, I asked a friend some advice and he told me that my laptop needs to be reformatted, so I let him reformat mylaptop. But the worst happened. Now, even if I try to turn on my laptop for how many times, it doesn't work anymore. No display.
I don't know what to do. I tried to ask a repair shop to check it and the technician told me that i need to get a new motherboard. But, again, someone told me that laptop's motherboard doesn't get broken. What do you think?
What should I do?

You need to determine whether the fault is the video/motherboard or the LCD screen on your laptop.

You could have a defective screen - a defective inverter or a CCFL lamp.
To determine if you have a LCD screen or video card problem, read this and follow the instructions.

Defective CCFL backlight, it may have the following symptom:

  • Screen flashs on red/pink and off.
  • Picture stays on in red and slowly be come normal.
  • Picture flickering with dim display.
  • Picture flickering on and off.
All these symptoms indicate that the LCD backlight lamp (CCFL Lamp) has reached the end of the life and all you need to do is replacing the CCFL lamp

Connect an external monitor to your laptop and power it up, if you see the normal Windows images then the video card and laptop is OK and the problem is definitely the backlight.

Dim image and/or dark display on the laptop's LCD screen indicates a faulty LCD backlight and it could be the inverter that supplies high voltage to the CCFL lamp or it is the CCLF lamp is nearly burnt out or burnt out, most likely this is the case.
The inverter can be replaced easily but the CCLF lamp is more time consuming and requires soldering skills.

Hp presario f600 boots and runs but screen wont cut on


Well if you are sure the computer is running, then you could have a bad inverter, take a flashlight and shine it on the screen, if you see the icons and computer booting, then you have a bad inverter, go on amazon and order another LCD. also if you have a desk top monitor, connect the monitor to your laptop, then boot up your laptop, hold down the "FN" (function) button and press "F4", you should see everything on your desktop monitor. Good luck.

I've had my compaq presario cq61 for about 2-3 years. A while back it would occasionally have a kind of shaky/blinky screen but just in the past week it's like the screen has stopped working.


The problem may be due the graphics card or data cable or backlighting.

The data cable can be severed over time though opening and closing the display. This can be replaced.
The backlighting/inverter dies, some-times the windows desktop screen can be seen if one looks carefully. This can also be replaced.

Try connect your notebook to another computer's monitor via VGA or HDMI out.

If this works then the problem lies with your LCD screen.

Take care!
