Compaq 1200 Screen Won't Come On

About two years ago, I was having problems with the computer sporadically going into hibernation and I got a new laptop because at the time I didn't have time to mess around with it. My daughter found the Compaq in the closet and wants to use it. The computer turns on and I can hear it making the star up sounds, but the computer screen is not working. Thank you in advance for your help and advice.

    No it's it. The only green light that is on is the one that shows it's plugged in.

Thinkpad issue


You probably think it is going into hibernation mode when really your getting the black and blue screen(very dark blue) This is a result of your windows failing. Your windows has been corrupted and the fix is to purchase a new windows xp,7,or vista. If you purchased it from the store they should have you on warranty, But if it bootlegged you may have to purchase a new one.

Hope this helps ^^. Please dont forget to rate, Thanks

HAVE A COMPAQ MODEL SR2177CL IF THE SCREEN HIBERNATES IT WILL NOT RESPOND HAVE TO POWER THE SYSTEM ON/OFF WILL WORK FINE TILL IT HIB. AGAIN PLEASE HELP


Attempt to turn off hibernation mode in the Windows Power Options.

Start > Control Panel > Power Options
Find the Hibernation option and change it to Never.

This way, the laptop will go to sleep, but not hibernate and store data to the hard disk.

I am unable to unhibernate


Power down the computer and power back up. Lets just shut hibernation off...you can always just have the computer sleep...it is much better on the system anyway.

Shutting Down Hibernation

Go to the control panel > Power Options > Hibernation tab > uncheck hibernate…this way you save a lot of disc space and don’t have to go through all the intermittent hibernation problems that occur. After you uncheck hibernation, you can go to the other power options and change how the computer reacts to the lid being closed, when it sleeps and for how long before sleep kicks in. Make sure to change the setting for what happens when lid closes to “do nothing” this will keep the laptop alive even though you close the lid to move it, etc.

Random hibernating; Charging problems


As far as the laptop turning off on you when you move it, try it with just the ac adaptor hooked up and if it still shuts completely off on you then that means the dc jack (where the ac adaptor plugs into) is loose and the connections to that are on the bottom of the motherboard and would need to be resoldered so its nice and tight. That would take care of that problem. The hibernation problem, go into the power options in the control panel and in there you can tell the laptop to not turn off the display or put the computer to sleep at all. That should take care of that problem or you can set it to a longer time, your choice.

Problems starting up


Hi,
This fault is caused with hibernation settings.
Turn it off in control panel, power options.
Problem will be gone then.

All computers struggle to come out of Hibernation.

Problem with hard-drive


Stand-by is sometimes in a deeper sleep than desired. Suggest that U disable the hd hibernation. HP is one of the many brands that have trouble with hd hiberation. The hd will always spin-down after delay when not being addressed. U don't save anything going to hibernation. If U leave Ur system on all the time, U need to shut-down and blow or **** the dirt out of the case every coupla months. The dirt will cause over heating and can create problems with the wakeup from hibernation.
