Question about HP Compaq nx7400 Notebook

1 Answer

My HP Compaq NX7400 notebook shows only the hp logo and then the screen goes black/blank. Windows xp boots regularly, I can hear the sound and if I attach the vga cable on the back I can use the computer. The screen is black even if I go in the bios. When I halt the windows system by pressing the on/off button one time I can see for a fraction of second the desktop. The same happens if I push and release the little pin that detects if the lid is closed... anyway the screen continue to be black. Is there a solution to this problem?

    I've found out that there's also a specific problem for the notebook related to the bios.
    No screen will show up during the first part of the boot (bios etc) if using an external monitor.

    I've solved it by changing the inverter.

Compaq nc 4000, after initial hp screen, screen


old dog compaq (no OS stated, XP?) even windows 2000(omg)
nc 4000, circa 2003 it will not ever run with no ram. ever.
1 stick at a time is the test in bank 0
first off its what. a note book.
take out the battery and leave it out , they like to short.
so what does the screen do?
you did not say its 100% dead all time
no text ever
no HP logo , no Compaq logs.
dead 100% and fan runs? vents not blocked, in lint
seem the HP logo is there, so that means BIOS is alive.
logo yes...
HP logo comes out of BIOS, not the OS.
so do the BIOS hot keys work , that is next.
OS running if vastly more complex.
your service manual states hit F10 for bios. (esc, and F2 per manual)
Omg 2, it has floppy drive, wow, not seen one in a decade.

amazing HP still supports this old dog, not sure why. over 10 years.
rule.
what next the boot is next
I boot to a CD that has linux live on it, see system work perfectly?
sure. if it does that means the OS on your HDD is bad or
the HDD is dead.
so what next if true.,
my guess is support ends 2018 (xp last +10 = 18) my calcs.
get the software and manuals now while the clock does not time out. hint, hint
so what next the service manual has flow chart.
so it says, if floppy boots then the HDD will not.
that you need to test the HDD but shows no ways to do that.
FDISK it shows, (sad that)
you need to run hdd tests. we use knoppix boot to do that
if that passes we reload your OS. from scratch.
i build this or keep one handy at all times. (mines on a USB stick)

How to i reset my password to get on my hp compaq 9030


if you are talking about the log on password for windows xp, when booting up, right before the windows XP logo comes up and it shows that its loading, press F8 like 3 times every second till a screen with writing comes up. If unsuccessful, keep trying, it should come up in 2 - 3 tries. Choose to boot in Safe Mode. when the logging screen comes up, log on Administrator. When logged on, go into control panel - user accounts - click on the account you want to remove password from and remove it. Restart PC, log in to the account, and that's it.
