Compaq laptop green pink screen pixalted


One of the things is to hook it to another monitor and see if that still happens. If it does not then it is most likely the screen on the laptop. Not to worry though it could be the cable that connects the laptop motherboard to the screen. When you open and close the lid, it flexes the cable and the little wires in can break. The cable is not cheap though. One way to test this is to change how far the lid opens by flexing it open and closed to see if the screen changes. If it does then it is that cable.

Compaq laptop, pink and green pixalted screen.


compaq day, endless posts... endless dead old PC's
who owns this old junk and why?
no LT stated, of the 1000s
no OS stated , XP?" what?

ever heard of photos, take a picture post it so folks can see reality?
all PCs break all do and often and LT vastly more often, its portable and that breaks them faster. x10.

what PC< we cant guess PC hear
LT ran at HP from 1984 to now. vast types, and compaq to.
simple tests.
1: ;runs ok with battery out , BINGO !!!! battery number 1 failure.
2: lent, lent packs vents overheats and CPu and GPU go NUTS.
all puters do this if not cleaned 1 time per year, all do. its called servicing the PC .
3: bad power pack of power is weak the electronics goes NUTS.
4: does the external VGA jack work to a external screen. yes/no.?
5: is this a 2008 Laptop with the GPU SOLDER BALL FAILURES?

next time post the PCs real model number.
or the service tag here is one random.







tag1-yurc2tkkgu0y15feq43cohvv-3-0_0.jpg this LT?


LOL 1984?
1984-yurc2tkkgu0y15feq43cohvv-3-1.jpg

Compaq Presario R4000 looses video and freezes after a while


The problem you describe can be caused by two different things. The two are not related to each other in any way.

The first, which is more common on desktop computers than laptop computers, is a thermal problem. The video chipset is overheating and causing a shutdown of the video. It is possible that this overheating is actually the cpu, but I don't think so, based on your description.

The second is the video power inverter chip. The power needed to keep the lcd screen lit up on a laptop is considerably more than what is needed to run the laptop itself. For this reason, a small power inverter chip is installed on laptops. It is usually found under the plastic bezal that surrounds the screen, and usually on the bottom. When this chip goes bad, the symptoms are as you have described.

Here's a couple things you can do before seeing a technician or teaching yourself to take apart your laptop. Plug in a different monitor; an external monitor and restart your computer. You should have a function option that will let you see two monitors at once. (that's the fn key, usually in the lower left of your keyboard). With two monitors showing exactly the same pictures, see if you can recreate your symptom.

If the problem is in the power inverter chip, the external monitor should remain on when the lcd monitor goes black.

If the problem is inside your computer (video or cpu overheating) then both monitors will go off.

good luck

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.

Monitor displays breifly then goes to blank screen


The power -inverter board probably needs an overhaul.
I redo many of these.
If the screen was pinkish or flickering before it finally got to this point, it is possible that a bulb has gone bad.

Compaq computer doesn't boot, no BIOS post screen/no video or beeps


welcome to fixya

does the computer turn on?

do any or the lights come on or is it just dead?

if compute does not turn on then you might want to make sure ever thing is plug in ...

if ever thing is pluged in and and still does not turn on this might be the power supply has gone bad ...

if computer turn on and nothing happens this could be a bad hard drive or the OS has messed up first try to but in your reboot disk this still nothing happens then the hard drive could be broken

hope this helps you out have a good day

Screen


Sounds like the monitor is going bad. I had this happen too and had to replace the monitor and it's been great since! If you can work fine, it's not the computer itself, it's the monitor.
