If I remember correctly, excel xp is different than 2000xp, likewise with works. As for the driver, select it form display manager and upgrade it.. You also probably do not have enough memory.

I have problem with display drivers on my compaq presario cq60 - 209tu i m having windows 7 as my os pls help me


Have you tried downloading the Display driver from HP's website and installing that? Maybe "Windows Update" updated your driver to a non-working one with your hardware... You can download the Driver here: http://goo.gl/g7Y5m - But please check your Device manager to see if you have Nvidia graphics or Intel Graphics in your machine, as it seems like the machine exsists with both variants.

I've had my compaq presario cq61 for about 2-3 years. A while back it would occasionally have a kind of shaky/blinky screen but just in the past week it's like the screen has stopped working.


The problem may be due the graphics card or data cable or backlighting.

The data cable can be severed over time though opening and closing the display. This can be replaced.
The backlighting/inverter dies, some-times the windows desktop screen can be seen if one looks carefully. This can also be replaced.

Try connect your notebook to another computer's monitor via VGA or HDMI out.

If this works then the problem lies with your LCD screen.

Take care!

Hi there,

If your computer works fine with an onboard video, it is possible that your motherboard is not getting much power. The agp video card gets power from the motherboard. I suggest using a different power supply.

My compaq laptop powers up but the monitor stays black i tried to plug it in a monitor and nothing.


Unfortunately..your display may be shot...Is it a Compaq Presario? These laptops have a history of display problems...I have a Compaq Presario R3000 and the display is showing a reddish color in the left bottom corner of the screen and my brother had a similar problem with a Compaq laptop where the monitor stopped working....Unfortunately it would cost more to replace the monitor than to buy an Apple MacBook...
You can buy a cable and attach the laptop to a desktop monitor and it will work although you will lose the mobility of the laptop which is what makes a laptop so appealing.
If your laptop has a NVidia graphics card you can go to display in control panel and set it up to use Plug & Play Monitor but you may need to use safe mode or you wont be able to see anything because your screen doesn't work....You might get lucky and when you plug in the cable (just like you would to attach a PC tower to a monitor), it will work and you will be able to make the monitor the dominant screen.

Can't reboot Compaq/Presario desktop, (power supply is working)


If the system recovery disk doesn't work it usually mans that the hard drive is bad. I would change the hard drive and use the system recovery disk on it after replacement.

Startup problem with Compaq Presario F500


Hello cccar,

"it just keeps rebooting with no screen at all even with an external screen"

I take it you mean that everytime you reboot you see nothing.....not that when you switch it on the computer reboots?

If it is that it just reboots all the time, it may be that the screen is not getting enough time to show anything. However, there are some viruses that stop the screen from showing too...so to check that put the hard drive in to another machine and run a full virus checker on it.

However, IF it is that the machine does not have a virus, and/or that the machine IS getting enough time to show a screen, then I am afraid it is either that the video cable is not working (the cable that connects the screen to the computer) or that the graphic card (or mother board if you dont have a separate graphic card) is at fault.
