Question about Compaq Presario X1000 Notebook

1 Answer

Monitor / LCD screen unresponsive to computer.

I have a Compaq presario X1000 Pc notebook with windows XP installed.

When I boot up the computer, my LCD / Monitor does not seem to work. There is no Windows XP logo that shows up and no log-in screen is seen, just black! There is a small band (perhaps a pixel in width) on the very bottom of the screen that is the colour of the log-in screen, and when I do login (using shortcut keys) the band changes to the XP colour theme I have.
All the key lights are functional (Caps lock, CD drive working light, On light, Battery power light). The backlight is functional and I'm fairly certain there is no issue with the computer itself as I can log in using shortcut keys (I can hear the music that announces a log in). But I can't see anything!! Please help.

    I have the same problem with my screen.

    Today , i flicked the rubber button on the top left corner of my keyboard , the one that puts the notebook in sleep mode when closed, the screen flickered on momentarily.

    I have a similar problem. The screen suddenly turned black while i was away. I was able to isolate the problem by using an external monitor. Later in the afternoon, i noticed a very faint outline on the black screen. It wasnt black at all!! Its just that the back light (or whatever you call it)is malfunctioning.

From what you've told us, It sounds like your LCD screen. The first thing to do is to to beg, borrow or steal a desktop monitor and plug it in to the proper port on the laptop. Turn it on and bring the system up. If this works, you can be pretty sure that you have nailed the problem. Once you've confirmed the problem, you might want to try to open it up to check the LCD cable and connector. Disconnect and reseat the connector and look for any cuts or abrasion on the LCD cable. If these actions don't get the display working, you'll probably need a new LCD. If you need more help on this, just let me know.
By the way, you did a very good job of describing the problem. Kudos to you...

Black screen after boot up.


Try pressing FN and F7 to get the video back on your PC's screen.
If that do not work, you could have a defective LCD display or the back lights might be defective as well.

Bootsafe error on hp compaq notebook notebook pc while booting


Boot from the XP disc and press R at the first screen. This takes you into Recovery Console. Run these commands:

fixboot c:
fixmbr
exit

The computer will restart and hopefully it will load Windows.

If not, is your computer making clicking sounds?

BSoD, Garbled Screen, Boot Failure.


If you are getting garbage on the screen before windows tries to load the laptop probably has a bad motherboard.

It's possibly only the video output is going bad on it, try hooking it to an external monitor and see if you get the same weird stuff on that screen.

Good luck, let me know how it goes
