Question about Compaq Presario 1200 Notebook

1 Answer

My compaq presario 1200xl310's monitor remains black. I just purchased a new ac adapter for it. It had been unused for about a month. When I inserted the new adapter and powered it up---no screenlight-up. I have tried Fn-F8; tapping the space bar; removing the battery. What other suggestions do you have for me?

You may have a defective CCFL backlight, it may have the following symptom: Screen flashes on and off or displays reddish pink hue. Picture stays on in red and slowly be come normal. Picture flickering with dim display or appear black. Picture flickers on and off. All these symptoms indicate that the LCD backlight lamp (CCFL Lamp) has reached the end of the life and all you need to do is replace the CCFL lamp.
To determine if the video card or the LCD is faulty, connect an external monitor to your laptop and power the monitor up first then the laptop, if you see the normal Windows images then the video card and laptop is OK and the problem is definitely the backlight. Dim image and/or dark display on the laptop's LCD screen indicates a faulty LCD backlight. It could be the inverter that supplies high voltage to the CCFL lamp or it is the CCLF lamp is nearly burnt out, this is the most likely case.
The inverter can be replaced easily but the CCLF lamp is more time consuming and requires soldering skills.

I have a Compaq Presario F557US Notebook that keeps cycling on and off continuously. The screen remains black though.


Sounds like a power issue.
Battery could be dead. Disconnect the battery and try to run with just the AC adapter.
Could also be the AC adapter.

i cannot think of a commercial product designed for this. I believe that you either may need to send it in for repairs, or if the pin inside the female end is bent, try bending it back. BE CAREFUL.

When you purchased the network-adapter, did it include a CD-ROM with device-drivers for Windows 98? Did you install those drivers?

Many "new" network-adapters include software that *ONLY* supports newer versions of Windows (XP/Vista/7) and no longer include support for Windows 98/98SE/NT/2000.

Look on eBay for another 3COM adapter, since that adapter worked for you.

Remove the battery and disconnect the power adapter for about a minute.

connect only the AC then boot it back up. If you can see the Compaq splash screen and still unable to load Windows, re install OS.

If you could not see the splash screen, too bad it could be a motherboard issue,

Hope this helps.

Battery won't charge


Hello,
This is true, you will not be able to charge the battery without the correct charger. For mostly all laptops, when the charger is not maintaining a charge, it is time for a new one. However, it does not have to be the manufacturer's adapter, but I recommend purchasing the battery made for the Compaq Presario M2000 Notebook.
NextTag.com has decent deals on these adapters. http://www.nextag.com/ac-adapter-compaq-presario-m2000/search-html

I hope this helps. Please let me know if you have any other questions.
Thank You, Raph30

start wit ha power reset, remove the battery, remove the ac adapter, hold the power button for 1 minute and then repalce the battery and ac adapter, if theres no go try it with just the ac adapter, sometimes the batteries short out. if all else fails its probably the mmobo and i suggest calling compaq for warranty support
