Question about Computers & Internet
I have a compaq V3015NR. It is about a year and a half old. I noticed that about a month or so ago I couldn't get the wireless to work. It wouldn't turn on. About a month after that is when this started to happen. It will be working just fine and all of a sudden it will go black (the screen). The keyboard lights are still on and running but the whole computer is dead. It won't react to anything. I got worried and looked it up on HP's website and they said to check the DC power plugin. So, I did and what do you know it rebooted it's self, and then was fine for a little bit. How ever it did it again, this time it is showing the same details as last time but the DC jack thing aint working. It is acting really wierd too. It will be on, black screen, not showing any signs of life, I mean none but it is on, the keyboard lights are on. If I shut it off and then take my finger and touch the touch pad at the top of the keyboard that has my volume, mute, and I think reboot or restart. It will suddenly come back on, REMEMBER I TURNED IT OFF. What is going on? I repair desktops all day and can say I have never ran into this. Does anyone have any idea as to what this is? I was thinking that mabey it was a BIOS problem, or a DC Jack problem, and I hope that last but not least it's a MOBO problem. Please let me know what you think PLEASE. I don't have the money to send it in and I can't afford a new one. I will probably end up repairing it myself as usual.
Same here,... exact same scenario.. exept in my case i put my computer away for like 3 months,, just today i took it in to the shop.. (finally had money) and for some reason i just couldnt get it to do what it was doing... the only issue i have now is that i still get blank screens at the first 2 or 3 boot ups..thats the only time i have the problem if someone has a solution please let me know i spent too much money on this computer..

Hey. That can be a pretty frustrating thing. I've sent a couple laptops into a service center with those types of symptoms. Almost 100% of the time it's a mobo issue. I know that's not what you want to hear, but that's from my personal experience.
