Question about Compaq Presario X1000 Notebook

1 Answer

Screen goes black repeatedly

I have a Compaq Persario X1000, and I use a second external monitor with it. Since yesterday the laptop screen will go black as if its in standby mode, however it wont come on simply by clicking a button. The only way to get my screen back on is to hit the small black button that is suppressed when the screen is shut. The screen will only come back on for 5-20seconds. Please help!

It appears the lid switch is sticking internally.
Try this: 1 drop of WD40 on the edges of the plunger button itself. If that doesn't work. You may need to replace the lid switch itself. Not much of a technical challenge, but a good tech should be able to do it in an hour. Common switch design from many laptops.

If possible; ask them not to unseat the Video Card if they don't have to, this model is prone to poor contacts on the video card, then the unit may never come on again, or have lines in the display. (same as HP zt3000)

If you have poor contact, you will need some contact lubricant/enhancer (@Radio Shack).

Used to work well for TV tuners in the old days, now good for poor motherboard/daughterboard connectors.

Problem with external monitor activating with DV6 1360-us


You can switch to an external monitor or data projector by two methods. 1. Connect the external monitor to the laptop's video port, power up the external monitor first and the laptop. The video information will automatically switch to the external monitor. 2. If you power up the laptop first then you can switch the video output to the external monitor by pressing the Fn key and one of the Function keys, depending upon your make and model laptop. You can also toggle between the external monitor or both LCD screen plus the external monitor or back to LCD screen only by pressing the Fn key plus one of the function key a few times. Here is a list of key combinations for some of the laptops :- IBM ThinkPad = Fn + F7 HP and Compaq = Fn + F4 Toshiba = Fn + F5 Dell = Fn + F8

How do i connect compaq presario x1000 to external monitor


Hi Judy,

The Compaq Presario x1000 notebook offers connections for external displays at the rear below the screen hinge as show in the picture below:

steve_con_5.gif

Identifying the back from left to right: Ventilation slots, External VGA Port, S-Video Port, USB Port, USB Port, RJ-45 Network Jack, RJ-11 Telephone Jack, Parallel Printer Port, USB Port and 1394 (a.k.a. "Firewire") Port.

You can connect a VGA monitor to the VGA port (blue colored jack) very easily. Any analog VGA monitor should readily connect to it. Additionally, the x1000 can output its display to TV or other monitor that accepts "S-Video" signals. An "S-Video" cable will be needed to connect between the "S-Video" jacks on the notebook (next to the VGA Port) and one on the TV. It is important to note that not all TVs support both or either "S-Video" or VGA inputs. When ever the there is a choice of using S-Video or VGA on a TV or monitor, the VGA will provide the best looking picture, and should be used.

I hope this helps and good luck! Please rate my reply - thanks.

Black screen on booting my Compaq 610 notebook


If it seems like you're accessing the hard drive (drive light comes on, flickers intermittently, then goes off, it's a good chance your screen is bad.

First thing to do is plug in an external monitor and start up the laptop. If it comes up with windows, you know it's the screen.

To find out if it's the backlight, or the lcd, toggle the monitor function and shine a flashlight on a slight angle to the screen. If you can faintly see what was displayed on the external monitor, then the backlight inverter is probably bad.

If the external monitor didn't come up, you're probably looking at a motherboard.

The good thing is that all of those are covered for one year under Compaq's warranty, on a new machine.

If you are able to use the external monitor, back up your data, because HP/Compaq usually reformat the harddrive. Additionally, if you've added memory, pull the cards. They want it sent back the way it came from the factory.

Compaq Presario X1000 service repair manual


If you connect an external monitor and use the function key, e.g.<FN><F4> to toggle between on board and external monitor and it displays a picture, then the problem is your LCD, If it does not display a picture then the problem is more apt to be the video card that is attached to the motherboard, On a friends dell it was just a bad ground screw.

Look at everything before you remove it.

Black screen


There are only three issues it could be...

1. The ATI video card has become warped due to overheating which woulod need to be replaced. You can find them used on Ebay for around $65 or new for around $125.

2. The cable has become frayed that connectects the video card to the inverter board due to opening/closing the laptop. Like $7 on Ebay.

3. The ribbon cable connection to the LCD panel itself has started to come undone which is also a common problem. Around $125 on Ebay.

You can try pressing down above the F5 key to see if the screen will come back up.

-Please give me a thumbs up :)

It's all black


If you power it on, take a flashlight and shine it on the lcd at and angle and look real close to see if you can see a faint image. If you can, then your backlight in the screen is not working.
Also, you can attatch an external monitor to it, while its off, then power it on and see if it lights the external monitor. Try that and let me know your results.
If you get a picture ok on the external, and you can see a faint image on the lcd using a flashlight, then it could be the backlight inverter board or the bulb itself inside the lcd went out.
If you don't get any picture at all, using an external monitor and can't see a faint image on the lcd using a flashlight, then I would say there's other problems with the laptop itself. Could be a mainboard problem, power issue, etc..
