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!

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.

My compaq presario 500 wont boot up?compaq screen comes on then, blank screen,a little cursor in the upper lefthand side


virus is the cause. You are going to have to put in your windows cd and boot from it. Then do a "repair" and hopefully recovery your system if not you are going to have to do a total system wipe.

Turning the pc on, screen remains black


If the laptop appears to boot up (ie. the power LED is on and the hard disk LED flashes) but you do not see any image on the screen, then it could be a back light problem. This can be caused by a faulty inverter or a faulty CCFL lamp. Please click on this link and follow my instructions to determine the fault and fix :-

Compaq Presario SR2150NX doesn't turn on. Front panel green light turns on but nothing else happens (no fans, no boot, no noise, nothing) Please advice


On the back of the Power Supply there should be a Green LED, When you power it on if it is flashing, this means that the Power Supply is dead and you need to replace it.

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.

Compaq Presaio S4200NX displays Compaq Splash Screen then a single continuous beep with but nothing else.


Hi,

Most Compaq desktop that exhibits 1 long never ending beep indicates Memory error; Bad RAM. Corrective measure therefore would be replace and test.

You can try removing the memory and cleaning the gold pins with a pencil eraser and try again. If this doesn't work, guess you're back to replacing.

Good luck and kind regards.
