HP compaq evo 610c after booting only compaq logo appears and then screen goes black.. I have connected a external monitor, it is working fine

Restart the laptop, hit F10 to get into the BIOS. Arrow over to the Advanced menu and then down to Device options. After or before the "USB legacy support" option, there may be a external monitor setting. If it is there, change that, as it may be set to only work with an external monitor connected. After making changes hit F10 to accept.

Arrow over to the File menu and to "Save changes and exit". Reboot. Try that, if it doesn't work, re-enter the BIOS (F10). Arrow over to the File menu and to "Restore defaults". Then "Save changes and exit". Reboot.

Hi there. I have a hp 6715b laptop and used it the one day and it was working 100 percent. Then the next day it would not get passed the hp boot up screen. It doesnt want to boot into bios or anything and...

wow 2010 year talks to 2017, now that IS MAGIC
ok stutz
hp 6715b let see what you are talking about.
so the screen never onces shows text ever, rigth (a key fact)?
not getting past HP boot up screen means to me windows unstated
XP or VISTA new... so ?
OS login screens are dead, that is booting OS,
BIOS kinda is booted, the processor executes BIOS directly, hard coded in the processors. since 1981.

that is correct bios is first.
for 10 long years, this pc booted and showed you
Hit Esc (or F10) to enter SETUP (hp name for BIOS is silly)
BIOS IS ROM , BOIS WORKS with the HDD and CD drive removed
first lets read your service manual.
see link at end.
Page 101 covers this and tells you to hit F10 at power on,
hammer it, BIOS screens must POP
the hit F1 see the huge info page there, all do that.
  1. main battery is bad and shorted.
  2. or Coin cell dead as all do 3 to 7 years old, like this one is.
  3. the CCLF lamps or its inverter is dead.
test 1, power on , hammper F10
while shinnging flashlight on the screen
see data now?
yes, bad CCFL lamps/inverter (hp calls it CCFT) search the doc below for CCFT and see it. cold cathode....
no, try the VGA jack to any monitor. got data now>?
data means (words or graphics of any kind)

see ccfl here (aka dead back lamps)

My laptop is passing BIOS, then i get the possibility to choose my start up choise. no mather wath i choose, the sreen goes black, and a cursor appears. It does nothing anymore, even a live ubuntu cd...

Remember, there are many things you can do which will make your Windows installation as well as your laptop unstable, or even make it so it will not boot. Try to get into your bios. Different computers have different ways to get there - some have it on the screen, such as "hit delete key toenter bios" or "hit f12 to enter bios" or some other key combination. I think you enter the bios on your computer by pressing F10 repeatedly while booting. You should get to the setup screen. See if your hard drive is listed. You should see a hard drive as well as a dvd drive. If your drive is not listed, either someone has changed your setup so it is not the boot drive, or your drive may have gone bad. While you are in the setup, if it is not already the first choice, make your dvd (or cd) drive the first boot device. If it shows up, make the hard drive the second choice. Then when you boot, the Ubuntu should load. Try not to make any other changes, as you can make your laptop unuseable.

HELP!! PLEAse!!!!!

What you have done is put a BIOS password on your system, all you have to do is enter the password you typed after you hit F10 the first time when the system boots up. if the password does not work try hitting the caps lock key and entering the password again.
