Question about Compaq Computers & Internet

1 Answer

My son's Compaq CQ50-139wm's screen is shattered (Don't ask). I would like to use the laptop as a desktop unit. I can not see the field where the password is to be entered (I have guessed dozens of times on the location--no luck.) Is there a way, during boot up, to switch to an external monitor before the Operating System is activated. Can you help an old Dad out with this? Thanks.

You can attach an external monitor to the VGA(monitor) port on the laptop itself and then pressing the key sequence on the laptop to switch betwwen monitors.
usually Fn+(one of the top F keys ,there is a monitor sysmbol on it).
If you are lucky ,the external monitor might already work just by connecting it lol.

My son knocked my hisense 42 inch tv over and now the picture looks shattered, and the plastic screen is dented. Can it be fixed with replacement parts


The LCD screen has been broken. The screen is the single most expensive part of the unit. It is normally not cost effective to repair them. Replacement is the best option. Prevent tip-overs in the future by either wall-mounting the device or by tethering the unit to a wall with the tether kit that is supplied with most units.

Screen on laptop broken, an impact-like smash, that is permanently a black screen.


Hello, it can be repaired and probably will be cheaper to repair than to buy a new one.

Fix flickering screen


Flickering screen is often caused by a defective cable. Check all the cables attached to your monitor.
If you think all your cables are in good condition, the problem is probably with the environment. Monitors are sensitive to magnetic fields. Change the position where you have your laptop.
The problem might also be caused due to refresh rate not properly being set. In this case your screen will flicker when you open images or videos. Just adjust the refresh rate that will be available in graphic properties.
If the above solutions don't work, you probably will have to change your display.

My laptop was dropped & now the screen looks like it has been shattered. When it's off, you can't see it but turn it on & looks shattered with different colors.


Hi,
You will just have to search for a new screen. They are not that difficult to change out. The people that said under warranty send it back. Well unless you purchased accident insurance on it, a cracked lcd is not covered. LCD just doesn’t crack from sitting and they will not cover them in most cases. It is considered miss-use or abuse. Replace the screen. If you are past your warranty, check eBay. Sometimes you can get a used screen for cheap. If you do that try to get it in the whole lid assembly, they are easier to replace that way. Check out the website for screens: http://www.screentekinc.com/

I can not get into my desktop it says i need a password and i have never put one in i was just just making a site for my son what can i do it is a compaq evo n600c laptop. logon message is you are required...


try leaving blank and hitting enter. If that doesn't work, try "admin". After that if you can't logon you will have to boot using safe mode. Finally, you can open up your computer and remove the lithium ion battery for a few minutes, replace it and then reboot. It should then not ask for a password.

Hp pavilion dv 1000 screen replacment


Dear lotaman, I have searched the world to find an exact guide for your monitor but it is impossible. Neveretheless I have found the following guides and they should be more than enough to complete the task in hand anytime.

TIP: The ZV5000 looks and is very similar to the HP DV1000 screen so I would start from there. All guides are very nicely explained.

Please remember to remove the battery before you do any work with the laptop.

Regards
