I have the same problem. Right now, I suspect an overheated GPU. When I try toboot, I get normal led displays (power, hardrive activity) and the dvd drive spins. However, I get no display. The backlight comes on, but no display. Also, no video out to vga or hdmi devices. After testing the ram, I did some more research.
I found the following results: *HP (aka compaq) devices are notorious for overheating. *low grade solder used on the gpu (less lead content = lower melthing temps) *poor heat distribution engineering on the gpu
What is happening is that the computer is overheating, melting the on board gpu chip and breaking its circuitry.
One fix that I've seen in other HPs is to reheat the gpu to melt the solder and hope for the best. See this link for a video demo (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ctHTF3oNdxI)
I almost went through with this procedure for our laptop model, but didn't go through with it because of the surface mounted micro circuitry near the gpu.
Best of luck, I'll let you know if I actually go through with the procedure and what happens~

Can I use a compaq persario without a mouse? I am not sure if this is the right model. It just says compaq persario and has windows vista. the mouse died.


If you computer is a desktop meaning it has a computer tower and a separate monitor on it its called a desktop computer and you really need a mouse for it, but if its a laptop/notebook those that are slim and without any tower for it you can use it without any mouse since it has a touch pad that you can use as a replacement for your mouse.

Have you recently installed any hardware? If you did, especially the Memory, take it out and reseat it.
You might want to reseat the hard drive also. Just take the screws out that are holding it in. Pull it out and put it firmly back in.

Hope that helps

Lost factory disks for my Compaq Persario sr1103wm know were I could get a new one?


Most HP and Compaq desktop PCs that ship with Windows Vista and XP do not come with recovery discs. Instead, they use a partition on the hard drive. To access a hard drive recovery, turn on the computer and repeatedly press F10 (XP) or F11 (Vista) until a Recovery window opens.

Sorry it took me a while to track down your computer.  Basically you can hold two 1GB chips in your computer.
This website has them cheap, and these will work in your computer. http://www.crucial.com/store/partspecs.aspx?IMODULE=CT12864AC667

You can also upgrade the HDD as large as you would like, but that is not going to be cheap, and you have a large enough hard drive.

Unmounable boot volume


This is an operating system error, and you will need an operating system disc. You can try to repair or reinstall the operating system, but most likely the hard drive has failed and will need replacing.
