    My computer does the same thing. Screen goes blank while I'm usuing computer. Almost like it is hybernating, except it won't wake up. I've tried reformating the hard drive and taking it to the repair place 'fire dog.' Nothing has worked so far.

Id say its hardware. try pulling the hard drive out and checking to see if posting gets any further.. it also could be the cd drive causing the post hang.

Turn computer on, the acer logo comes on screen then goes blank, nothing happens


First - re-seat the hard disk and reboot the computer. If the computer does not boot up then reboot and go into the BIOS configuration to see if the BIOS detects the hard drive. If it doesn't detect the hard drive then it could be faulty.
Then the hard drive needs to be replaced in the computer/laptop, Windows installed and the computer or laptop's device drivers plus your programs etc. to get a functioning computer/laptop again.

Compaq CQ50 wont load


YOU are to be COMMENDED!

Do you know how many do not even post the manufacturer name of the computer, much less the model number?

Plus adding the diagnostic measures you have posted?

Wish more people would use the problem area you have used, and wrote a PAGE! lol!

Do need the model number though, along with the model series number you posted. This way I can look at the BIOS versions.
(Example - CQ50-100CA)

Need to ask.........is CDROM the first boot device in Boot Options?
(BIOS Setup)

Could be of course, but you didn't post it. Makes a BIG difference.
The computer HAS to boot from the CDROM, then.

Post back in a Comment.

Starts up goes to start windows then goes off and comes back to start again


It is more than likely the hard drive, or the window files are corrupted, if you have a backup recovery disc try it now, no change! have the hardware tested.

Hi i have a compaq presario laptop and after it stars up the screen just goes blank


Hi there,
do you still see the compaq logo and does it show you the windows boot up screen before it goes blank?
OR
do you see anything on the screen at all after pressing the power button?
Check if the laptop is receiving power. If it has power and you can't see anything on the screen it could mean that the LCD assembly or the Video card of your laptop is bad.
If it goes to the compaq screen and then to windows logo before going out, try booting into safe mode and once there uninstall the video driver from the device manager because that means the resolution was set to something higher than the display could handle.
If it restarts after showing the compaq screen try reseating the memory, hard drive and wireless card of your computer put them one by one and try turning the compter on after each part you put back to check which component is point of failure.
Otherwise you have a bad motherboard and it may have to be replaced.
Hope this helps!

Only shows compaq on screen


I work with Compaq computers now and usually your problem points to the hard drive. I know Compaq's will stay on that screen if the hard drive has failed. Try another hard drive would be my suggestion.

Hope this helps.

My computer turns on sometimes the quickly goes blank. Other times, the On light comes on but the screen stays black and nothing seems to be moving inside.


try to desconnect or unplug your hard drive, if you see a black screen with a bunch of white letters, you hard drive is crashed, if not try to conect a second monitor (external) tru you vga connector, if work fine you have a lcd problem===>>>reemplace asap.
