Question about Compaq Presario X1000 Notebook
I took to get a diagnostic and they advised the motherboard was out. I kinda forgot about it and packed it away for about a year and decided to mess with it last night and to my surprise, it booted up several times after I shut down and restarted. (just to check it out) Everything was working last night. I turned it on this morning and now it's not working again. If a motherboard goes out, will it still work sometimes? I just don't think that's what is going on with mine. Any ideas??? (power light on, you can hear it start to boot but then nothing)
It is the video card. Well known Issue.

Sounds like you definitely have something that is intermittently not making proper contact. I'd suggest checking all of the cable connectors first. Disconnect each one and reseat it. If that doesn't do the trick, you may have a broken land pattern on the motherboard. That usually means a motherboard replacement.
