Re: compaq 1015v screen problems

Under the right hand hinge, the plastic hinge cover has cut into one or more wires

Unplug the battery, unplug the mains, carefully undo the 2 screws immediately under the laptop AT THE TOP in the middle undet usb / VGA socket roughly (on the base)

the plastic panel around the power on button (and volume buttons) will pop out carefully

take off the hinge covers carefully

examine the wires... solder them, insulate ... you will see the problem

the laptop "strecthed" out with the screen open strecthes the nicked wire and it disconnects... when you shut it, it reconnects

that ok mate?

Check your power saving mode in the system settings. You might have enabled the battery saving options.

Nx9010 powers on but no video. fan spins.

Hello sir, hi, it seems you have a problem with memory modules, you need to open up your PC/laptop, and locate the memory. remove the modules, and clean its terminals (you clean then using a pencil eraser, just simply erase the terminals, until the contacts become shiny), with a soft clean paint brush, clean the memory slots too, then replace the modules, close then test the unit. do this several times until the unit boots up. keep me posted.

Screen will not stay upright, can it be fixed?

Hi! This solution is very late, but I just came across the original post. Maybe it will still do you some good.

You need to replace the display hinges. There are vendors online who sell them ( for one) but they are expensive. Right now there is a vendor on eBay offering a set cheap. If you see this solution soon enough, check it out here.

Compaq presario evo 1015v

sounds like a bad screen this might be able to be remedied by hooking the laptop straight to a computer monitor threw the ports provided in the back
also you could have bumped something loose inside like a video card if any cards or memmory comes loose this will give you black screen of death the laptop will have to opened and cards pressed down gently
theres the solution of your power supply on the laptop went out and you need a replacement
if power supply went out it doesnt hurt your comp it just makes it hard to run

New LCD SCreen problem

I am no expert on this issue, but i am not sure you can install a SXGA resolution screen into a formally XGA laptop. Never tried that before. I don't believe that it will work CORRECTLY. As you have stated. Is there anyway you can send it back and get a XGA one instead and solve your problem? Keep me posted.. I am curious about this... THANK YOU ...GURU JAY

My cd/dvd opens then closes

> I've already replaced it once

Well, I've seen CD-drives that would re-open, when you try to close them -- it is _falsely_ detecting a "jam" as the tray is closing, and then just re-opens the tray, rather than "forcing" itself to close.

Replacing the CD-drive is the only way to fix that type of "false-positive" jam-detection conditions.

But, since you've done that, either you were unlucky-enough that the replacement drive was also "defective", or, you have a computer-virus on your computer that is maliciously issuing commands to the CD to "open-the-tray".

somthing thats worth trying is going into my computer, right click on the cdrom drive and click eject if it works that way then its software thats stopping it from ejecting, if it still dont work take a paperclip and push it in the small hole in the cdrom drive and it will pop out its only a temporary thing but it works to get the cd out.. All the Best John
