If you have already gone into the BIOS settings and made sure it is set to power up with your internal video card then simply try installing a new card in the PCI slot. When booting with a new card (or known good used card) you should get an image on your monitor that will prove your system is ok and you just needed a video card. If that works your onboard Chip was bad. Before you start any of these checks go into your BIOS settings and set up the default settings just in case since there are setting related to amount of shared memory for onboard video that could stop you from getting any picture at all.

My HP G6000 Notebook PC, wont turn on. the AC charger adapter lite powers on when connected but wont turn on the pc. three days later my computer still wont turn on, but now the bottom three lite...


It is a probably a short in your hard drive or power supply to the hard drive. Honestly may be cheaper to replace the computer if it is a power supply short, laptop internal components are expensive to repair.

Screen went black...rebooted, computer seems to


Remove the battery and disconnect the power adapter for about a minute.

connect only the AC then boot it back up. If you can see the Compaq splash screen and still unable to load Windows, re install OS.

If you could not see the splash screen, too bad it could be a motherboard issue,

Hope this helps.

My laptop powers on and I can hear the fan but nothing comes up on the screen...it stays black. What should I do?


Reseat the memory one stick at a time in each slot one at a time. After each reseat turn on the laptop and see if you get video. If after doing each memory stick you don't get video then go ahead and take out the hard drive and then take out the dvd drive.

If after doing this you still don't get video then the motherboard is bad and would need to be replaced.

Black screen not booting


check both your power and video connections to the monitor, sounds more like a monitor power issue.
if the connections appear ok, but screen still blank, try connecting a known good working monitor from somewhere else and see if it works with your pc, if it does, your original monitor is faulty, if it doesn't, you have a pc video issue.
