The most likely culprit is heat. When a laptop overheats, it shuts down to protect itself.
Buy an inexpensive cooling pad at Stuff-Mart or a computer store or simply slide a paperback book under the back edge so that air can circulate under the machine.

Hi i have a compaq presario laptop and after it stars up the screen just goes blank


Hi there,
do you still see the compaq logo and does it show you the windows boot up screen before it goes blank?
OR
do you see anything on the screen at all after pressing the power button?
Check if the laptop is receiving power. If it has power and you can't see anything on the screen it could mean that the LCD assembly or the Video card of your laptop is bad.
If it goes to the compaq screen and then to windows logo before going out, try booting into safe mode and once there uninstall the video driver from the device manager because that means the resolution was set to something higher than the display could handle.
If it restarts after showing the compaq screen try reseating the memory, hard drive and wireless card of your computer put them one by one and try turning the compter on after each part you put back to check which component is point of failure.
Otherwise you have a bad motherboard and it may have to be replaced.
Hope this helps!

Screen blank


If the backlight stays on then your lcd needs to be replaced. It is a easy job there are a couple of rubber pieces around the bezel which is the plastic around the screen. once you remove those you get to the screws remove those and then carefully take off the bezel. there will be anywhere from 2-4 screws that hold the lcd to the brackets in the side and there might be two at the top. there are two things that you need to unplug a cord at the bottom of lcd which is usually oink and white that is the power. on the back of the lcd is your video its long and flat can't miss it. Reverse steps to put back in.

Put my laptop on sleep last nite.... went to start it this morning.... nothing.... it powers up and i can hear the fan but screen is black


usaully on a laptop there is a function key that controls video output. this key normally has three positions. Video to laptop screen only, Video to laptop and vga output (IE. lcd projector2.gif), and the last one is "Video to vga output only". The last setting will keep your laptop2.gif screen blank. It is worth a try. GOOD LUCK!!

Compaq blank screen


I specialize in repairing these particular compaq units and they all have the most terrible quality just being thrown together, but if someone took the time to inspect everything inside the computer and make sure it was properly connected and organized and functional then there would be no problems. Therefore I get like 3 of these computers a month.

LCD screen blank out


look at your function keys (F4 F7) from what i can see on the picture but it will somehow resemble an lcd screen. Try to push the Fn button along with the F-button that has the "lcd" picture at the same time. If this does not work pushing it once try to push it twice. After each time release both buttons and wait a couple seconds after each attempt and see if this fixes the problem

Blank screen


I think your LCD is stuffed is it under warranty do you know BUT if the screen is cracked they wont replace it typical HP. To get your external monitor running hold down the function key and the blue monitor looking key similtaneously normally on compaq its the F4 key but look around your keyboard (looks like a monitor) and is blue letters.
