There are many reasons. Could be a backlight issue or a dead screen or the screen is switched off with a function button or a broken lead or a GPU issue ...

Hp webcam driver for compaq 6735b won't install

NO OS stated, are we to guess OS , windows what.
XP ,vista or 7
32bit and 64bit for 6 OS delivered while produced.
or W10 with the Free W10 upgrade, must I guess more?

what did it have new. XP? 32bit (x86)
then what do you have now, see? we cant guess what upgrades means. or updated. (windows update?)
compaq can be super old or up to 2013
lets see what your is.

camera the one built in to the screen top bezel that cam?
or added cam? or some USB camera> ?
here is your support page at HP real. we are not HP here.

HP drivers are smart, they flat refuse to load on wrong pc
wrong OS or wrong camera. or PC is 64bit and you ran 32 drivers, by DESIGN.
see? my guess wrong all that. 1 or more....
see that?

if hp camera (built in)
click os here. and bits (above link has all that)
then go get your driver,
its that simple.

lets pretend , its xp 32
under multi media.

in all cases when any PC fails for any reasons like this
1 thing bad, or 2.
we go to device manager,
and click view, show hidden devices
do you see anything there with yellow, red marks or errors.
we do that to see if some drivers were deleted.
or worse, a new OS installed and many are now wrong or missing.
do that first. make sure all drivers on the HP page are loaded
for sure the grapics and camera , and the first 8 on the HP sites driver page,

look for a softpaq, to autoload all that.
or run the newer

I have a compaq presario x1000 that wont let me get past the logo. It was working fine one day, but then I shut it down. The next morning I booted it up it the computer never went past the Compaq logo.

It is likely that the hard drive is bad or a memory issue. I would start by removing the hard drive and see if it goes past the compaq screen. If it does then you know what is wrong. If not message me and will walk you through the next step

Compaq armada 1700 only starts on safe mode

If this is your notebook - Compaq Armada 1700 (316320-056) PC Notebook. The system memory only came with 32MB's of memory. Your not telling me enough. Have you recently upgraded your operating system? If I have this wrong please post which Compaq you have from the list I'm providing from this link:
If you are trying to run a XP version your memory will need to be increased to at least 512MB. You still have the Compaq's splash screen loading when you turn on your notebook which blocks you from seeing the amount of memory installed in your notebook. So when you start your notebook press the F12 key on your keyboard. You need to enter the bios. If F12 does not get you there than try F10 or F1 key. At startup. Repeat hitting the key every two seconds till the Bios screen loads. Look for the amount of memory installed. At the bottom of the bios screen is instructions on how to navagate while in the bios. You'll need to post back with what you found If I'm to help further.
