Question about Compaq Presario X1000 Notebook

Presario x1000 DK454AV doesn't boot. SN CND33503QG

DVD ROM drive clicks, hard drive light blinks, system does not boot. screen is blank, no bootup splash screen.

Removed DVD ROM clicking stopped. System will not boot. Continuous HD light blinking on front of case.

Removed HD and copied files to other laptop. Drive seems good.

Wondering if this is a Motherboard issue. How can I test to be sure? Where would I be able to get another MB if it is bad? Is it worth it for this age PC?

Thanks In Advance.

The video card will overheat on these models if the fan is not on or something is blocking the intake on the bottom like clothing, bedding or pillow. When the card finally fails, everything will look normal but nothing will display on the screen or at the VGA connector on the back of the laptop. The video card has to be repaired or replaced. If you get video from the VGA connector, then the inverter in the screen is most likely defective...you can tell by closely looking into the dark screen to see if there is a faint, and I mean faint, image. In this case the inverter will need repair or replacement.

Yes sounds like the board has gone out on you.

You will have to watch ebay for a board. I just searched and nothing except batterys and keyboards are available.

Insert a blank diskette into the floppy drive. Click start click on computer you should see all of you drives.

Look for the option to "Make this disk bootable." You may have to scroll over the various icons displayed to find this option. Click on the option.

Burn the CD or DVD as usual. Once completed, this disk can be used to boot your computer.

My compaq presario x-1000 hard drive light and dvd rom light flashes. Won't boot up.


Try disconnecting the harddrive from the case and then place it back in. if that doesn't help you may have a faulty drive, hows warranty? Compaq / HP would fix it for you free if you still have warranty.

let me know.

Thanks,

My d600 will not bootup. i press f2 or it goes to a blank screen with a blinking line. what order do i put my boot order in so it will reboot


I usually put them in this order.
1. CD/DVD
2. Floppy Drive
3. Hard Drive
If your computer does not boot this way put the original operating disk in and try to boot from CD.
If your machine boots with the CD you can try to repair your operation system.

Hi there.
Go into the Bios and set the boot order to HDD (hard drive) as first boot device, save the changes and exit the bios, the computer will restart and try to boot from the HDD.

BSoD, Garbled Screen, Boot Failure.


If you are getting garbage on the screen before windows tries to load the laptop probably has a bad motherboard.

It's possibly only the video output is going bad on it, try hooking it to an external monitor and see if you get the same weird stuff on that screen.

Good luck, let me know how it goes
