If we generally look at the your system problem has to do with devices which make the system to boot if the motherboard is good

a. Ram
b. Processor
c. Screen display

if you system is powering without booting you need to check for the memory, if it did not solve, then change the harddisk to see if it is hardware problem, or you are so good you can open it, then change the processor to see, listen very carefully to the beeping sound which will indicate that system is booting, if there is no any beeping, remove the memory and boot the system to listen to the beeping, if there is beeping then change the screen, if non, it is high time to find expert to fix it for you

You could try the xp boot disk but
If the power light comes on ( this assumes that you have the laptop pluged into the wall and you see the AC light on) and the screen DOES NOT light up and have you boot stuff on it THEN
sorry but its time to take the laptop to the repair man!

Posted on Mar 10, 2008

First check the dc voltage coming out from the adapter if it comes perfectly and then check any beeps coming when you are booting
if beeps comes how many beeps coming check and then write a problem ok

Hi there. It would help if you provided more info regarding your problem. The follwing would be good startpoints:

1. What was the last time you were able to do with the laptop?
2. Have you made changes [immediately] before the issue started happening?
3. How old is the PC?
4. What are its specifications (ie.CPU speed, memory type and size, OS, etc.)
5. Have you experienced this same problem before using the same computer, or on another computer?

Well, here's a shot in the dark. If the unit is, say more than 5 years old, it's probably a hardware defect. Meaning your unit's screen display data connection is already out of order. This usually happends to laptops with data connections too compactly embedded between the hinge of the laptop lid and chassis.

Just got cq56-115dx laptop this morning. turned it off after setting it up. Turned it back on and only have blank screen. Power shows lit up.


Hi.

Remove the AC power (charger) and then take the battery out. Plug in just the AC power supply and turn the laptop on, see if it boots up and shows a display on-screen. If it boots let it boot up and then shut it down as normal. Reinsert the battery and try as normal.
If you still get a blank screen can you then tell me if you get any post (splash) information like the Compaq Presario logo before it goes blank.


Good luck.

connect your laptop to an external monitor using a VGA cable to see if its display. if not, open the PC to check if the memory is properly working, if not, replace it. if the problem continue, check the system processor.

My compaq F756NR's screen remains blank after booting up. The power buttons are on. Please help.


Remove the battery and the power plug. Restart the laptop without the battery and just the power plug. This may help. If it does shut back down and put the battery back in. If it doesn't, then please contact the vendor or a local technician. Cheers, Ravi Shanghavi

When I move my compaq lap top or type a key too hard


that sounds like a video card error. if you can disassemble the notebook, check for loose connectors, particularly the connector that goes to the screen.

Black Screen Compaq Presario


Do you see the BIOS splash screen or anything?
Try booting into safe mode by pressing F* as soon as you power on the computer. If the monitor works, then it is a bad driver. Roll back to a previous restore point, boot to last known good coonfiguration. Last Known good configuration is available from the same as the safe mode screen.

If this is helpful, please comment and rate. Have any other questions, please let me know.

Could be a stuck key somewhere, has anything been wasted on the keypad, tap the keys one by one to refresh is. Could also be that the keyboard is broken.
