Compaq Presario R3000 Black Screen with flashing cursor

My Compaq Presario is 3 years old. When I boot it up, it only brings up a black screen with a flashing cursor. I have tried using a recovery disk, but the disk only spins for a few seconds and quits. I've tried holding the "CTRL-ALT-DELETE" keys down for several seconds, but it doesn't help. Sometimes I see several green vertical lines across the screen.

I do get the set-up options, such as changing the boot order, but this doesn't change anything.

    I have a similar problem. My Compaq R3000 will boot but I only get a black screen (no flashing cursor). If I hook up to an extrnal monitor I can see that everything is working as usual. Help!!!

Lines are the BGA RAM Or VRAM Needing rework.. This will also cause boot issues on these models. Do you ever see the Compaq Logo? Weve repaired a ton of these and class settlement happened for the R3000's regarding the jacks but we could repair the other issue as well. (As well as install a new jack while its here).. HP's reimbursing for these outside repairs.
Good luck!

    If it works on Ext monitor it may well be the inverter or backlight for the other poster....

My PC will not boot up i have a black screen with a flashing cursor in top left hand corner


That cursor is the way in which the BIOS is telling you that no OS was detected = Windows has been completely corrupted and the only thing left for you to do is to reinstall it using the Recovery disk

Good day sir/maam, your LCD's inverter or back light lamp needs to be checked. I suggest you bring it to your dealer for service. If you can do it, you may need to buy first the inverter, make sure its your laptop's model. still not working replace the lamp. hope this helps

Laptop shuts off


motherboard may be your problem, if it is fried it will attempt to load but will continue to shut off with no explanation. however if you have downloaded a virus then if you can manage to get your computer booted i would suggest a restore to a previous point and try to get rid of the virus this also works if you have downloaded a program or service pack that is incompatible with your computer. could also be your bios or hard drive. computers **** to fix hope this helps.

Black screen on mu compaq R3000


You can try:

reseating / swapping the memory

booting the computer with the battery out.

You probably damaged the motherboard with the drop.

There are a few other things you can try too, but let's try the easy stuff first.

My compaq preasrio r3000 black screen cant conect to an external


have you any other A/V ports out ie Svid etc if so try that via an A/V lead, if that works reset your bios settings to minimal settings, if that doesnt work search the 'net someone somewhere has had the same problem! try shining a flashlight/lamp onto the screen whilst booting up, if you see anything on the screen then your inverter is definatly gone and yes it could still be your inverter! your laptop may have software/hardware issues with an external monitor?

Hi Tom,
It appears without looking at the laptop you have removed or dislogged the cable that goes between the motherboard and the screen. This is not hard to do they are very delicate. The only thing you can do is take it to a qualified service tech. i get these periodically in my shop too. Check the cable before you do so to see if you can reconnect it but be very carefull.
Be mucho blessed,
Mark
