My Compaq Presario F732NR Laptop w/Vista won't Boot.

I Have a Compaq Presario F732NR Laptop w/Vista.
Recently it will not boot. The leds light and the CD Drive looks for a cd. It will not boot with or without a bootable CD. The display usually remains dark. Sometimes the display lights briefly or even less often, momentarily shows the COMPAQ name. It will continually re-cycle by turning off and back on with the same scenario.
I have swapped and removed Memory modules one at a time, Removed the Hard Drive and swapped power Bricks. Nothing changes. I've also plugged it into an external Monitor and get a ''No Signal'' message.

Any Ideas?

You have done an excellent job of diagnosing a MotherBoard fault. This is undoubtably the problem. Have you removed all/any cards attached too, like say the WiFi?

Can't install xp in compaq laptop


you mean you need to downgrade your computer from Windows Vista to XP?
if so is the case, you need to go to the BIOS in the Boot menu, select IDE from ACPI.
put the boot option to boot from CD first or disable Boot from hard disk.
then you will be able to downgrade your computer from Vista to XP.
