Question about Compaq Evo N610C Notebook

2 Answers

No splash screen, no activity just lights (evo N610c) Plz help.

Yesterday I powered on my Compaq Evo N610c and it went to the compaq logo screen where I went into bios by pressing f10. When I was in bios it locked up so I hard booted the system by pressing and holding the power button. When I tried to restart the system nothing showed up on the screen (it was completely black) but the lights on the front showed that there was hard drive activity. After several reboots and retries (about 15 minutes of them) the light for the hard drive stopped showing any activity now (it just lights up for a second then shuts off). The one thing I noticed and it seems strange is if the DVD-rom drive is out but the hard drive is in the light wont flash. It only flashes if the DVD-rom drive is in. I've tried booting it up with both the battery only and the A/C and it both has the same results. I'm at my wits end and hoping that someone here can help me figure out what is wrong. Thanks in advance.

Re: No splash screen, no activity just lights (evo N610c)...

I am having the same problem with my hp compaq nx9030 I cant figure it out. I press the power button and the cpu fan starts for a couple seconds, and the hard drive light comes on on, power light is on, but everything is completely inactive. And I have had problems getting it to boot in the past. Sometimes having to turn the computer on and off 10+ times to get it to boot.

Laptop dispalys to monitor but laptop panel cannot be activate


Thanks for all the details..

The issue seems to be with the video card drivers here...

Go to and download the latest video card and the chipset drivers

before you download ...uninstall the nvidia chipset or any display software from program and features.

after you have installed the software.. go to the nvidia control panel > setup multiple monitors. and browse throughout the options >
It should be dual display and not extended display.

Also try with a new user profile...

Hope this helps..

Compaq Evo N610C Faint Screen

Usually it's the inverter. Sometimes it's the backlight / lcd, and occasionally it's the lcd cable and or video card.

Easiest thing to do is order a replacement inverter from ebay. They're cheap and then swap it. You just need to remove the outside lcd bezel, it's just four or five screws and you're in business.
