Compaq presario b1900 fails to give output to monitor. If output comes out it gives blue screen and shuts down. If you switch on again the fan and disk do run but no output to screen. An external monitor...

That blue screen and shut down, means a problem on both OS and Hardisk.
If you got any hardisk for that laptop. try it and am sure it will work.
The faint beep means a good memory card.

Hope that helps!

The laptop stays on for few minutes and then it turns itself off but before it does that, it shows a large blue scree and some large white text, the text flicks a little but fast to the point where I can...

First of all Turn of your laptop.
Now this time when you turn on your laptop start tapping F8 Key on you keyboard when you Toshiba logo. Tap F8 key for at least 5-6 times.
You will get a Windows Advance Option Menu. You will see lot of options over their written in white text. Your mouse will not work on this screen. Use UP and DOWN arrow keys on you keyboard and highlight Last known good configuration. Once highlighted press enter on it. See if you computer boots. If it boots try doing a restore.
If it doesn't boot.
Turn off your computer and then turn on your computer. On Toshiba Logo screen tap F8 key once again and go to windows advanced option menu screen once again and this time hightlight Disable automatic restart on system failure. Now when you see Blue screen coming up on your computer once again your computer won't restart. Now you can write down the information to trace out the blue screen that is occurring on your computer. Write down the Error code which will be in form of STOP 0x000000XX, you find this error code somewhere at the bottom of the blue screen.
Once you get the reply here, we will see what we can do.

MX6448 won't boot; black screen.

It seems that you don't remove the battery when you use the Notebook. This practice shortens the life of the battery because, when you use the a/c adapter and the battery, your battery is alternately charging and discharging all the time. The cells in the battery eventually die.

From what you describe, it sounds like the power strip inside the Notebook (where you plug in the adapter cord) has been damaged and needs to be replaced.

Your computer is not a total loss. Just have that power strip and the battery replaced and your Notebook should be up and running again.

And, in the future, if you just remove the battery when your kid uses the computer, or if you are going to be using it for over 1 hour. Save the battery to use when you need the mobility.

Unexpected "shutdowns"

I suggest you to clean the vents near the fan by opening your laptop. Also remove any recently added hardware. The issue can occur even due to bad RAM. I recommend you to try the steps in the below link:

My Vostro 1500 will not turn on please!

Reset/replace the Ram/memory. Sometimes faulty and failing ram can keep a computer from booting up. If you have 2 sticks, take one out and then try to boot, then try with just the other stick. The flashing caps lock icon means a general failure, though it is most commonly associated with the motherboard.

You need to dry out electronics immediately after a spill power off and battery out. If not you will short something and the first few boots it will at like it wants to work but all your doing it making it worse and watching it die

Cannot start up the laptop

Hi there.
That really quick flash of a blue screen is the blue screen of death and there is a possibility that the error could be memory related.
What you have to do is remove and clean the system memory and the slots the memory goes into.
Take out the battery and the AC power (if attached)
The memory will be located behind a panel underneath the laptop, unscrew the panel unclip the memory, clean the brass contacts and the slots with a clean, dry, soft paintbrush, then reseat the memory making sure it clips into place, replace the memory cover and reboot the laptop, see if it lets you into windows.

Please post back with the results and more help if needed, good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!

Screen displays for 1 minute then turns black

If you have an HP, you probably have a bad display. They are very bad about that very thing. Where the display hinges are, press on the left hinge just above the keyboard. I have a similar HP and mine has the same problem. I was told a shop that it is the inverter for the display. You might see if there is a shop that can look at it for a small fee.
