Dm its a POST screen.
you may find the error which cause problem in tha back of this screen.

  • Just press Esc or Tab to see the POST screen.
  • Note down the messages which appears on the screen.
  • Then tell us whats goin on.

You can try to boot in safe mode.
  • Just start pressing F8 after power on. It will open the Windows boot mode select menu.
  • Select Same mode
  • see whats going on

Since you cant get anywhere from the compaq logo.. well try to press TAB button in the startup, try a few times (start it again if you dont get anything)

You should get the diagnostic screen.

If the bios needs to be flashed .. then the chip needs to be removed from the motherboard, difficult operation contact a local pc shop for help if you are not experienced in takeing laptops apart and useing a soldering iron the remove the bios chip from the motherboard and then flashing it in another pc motherboard.. well difficult it is.

I wont go into more detail.

My 2011 Malibu will not start

Does it turn over, like it's trying to start, and then just never does? Or does nothing happen at all when you turn the key. If it's trying to turn over but won't start, it could be a fuel pump or fuel line issue. If there's nothing but a click or silence when you turn the key, it sounds like an electrical issue with your starter.

Hi sir/madam, My laptop's screen doesn't turn on. I thought the screen is gone n need a new one but after trying to turn it on like ten times it turned on everything was perfect but when I tried to restart...

Hi if you are getting nothing at all from the lcd screen (black screen with no cursor or icons) there are two possible causes 1st is the LCD itself it starting to worn out or sometime it is just the simple wire connecting the LCD to the mainboard to get the display that needs to be replaced.
If your getting a black screen with blinking cursor and you can still see the hp logo at startup you just need to update the video card driver of your laptop.
Have the HP check first the hardware side of your system so that they can replace the broken parts. thanks

Hp dv6408nr laptop beeps four times when I turn it on then nothing happens.

4 beeps usually means a system time failure which means the main timer on your motherboard isn't working. it's not something that can usually be repaired and you probably need a new motherboard

Sir i want to load new window in my laptop but im not able to find booting hardware means hardwares though which i can load window at boot time

you need too go into the BIOS and set the boot order so the DVD is picked before the hard drive.
press F2 when starting the laptop to enter the setup - from there you can change the book order.
Please let me know if this helps?

When i turn on the LT, the hard drive starts clicking, but no video, cd drive works, but nothing shows on screen, I switched to an out side monitor, same thing, nothing happens. Am wondering if HD is bad...

the hard drive is definitely bad so take it out of the laptop, clicking noise means the platters inside of it are misaligned.

After taking out the hard drive then turn on the laptop and see if you get video. If you do then you know the hard drive was shorting out the motherboard. If you still don't get video then unseat and reseat the memory sticks one stick at a time in each slot one at a time and try turning it on after each memory reseat.

If the laptop still doesn't turn on then take out the dvd drive as well.

If you still have no video then that means not only is the hard drive bad but also the motherboard.

Acer AL1916 can't start

If you press the power button and nothing comes on at all then something isn't providing power to the laptop as it should and you may likely need to replace the battery or the power cord.

Find a replacement battery. Change your battery with a new one then plug it up and turn on to see if this works.

If replacing the battery doesn't work then replace the power cord and trying turning it on again. If this doesn't work either, you have a more serious issue going on.

Not too long ago, I was on vacation, my laptop had been working fine until suddenly it wouldn't come on at all. I went into the office to grab a new battery and power cord. (I work on computers so I had spare parts in my office/Tech Room.)

I got home and replaced the battery then tried to turn it on using the old power cord...didn't work. This was a brand new battery so now I knew that I could rule out the battery as the issue...the only two things left to troubleshoot were the power cord and the laptop itself.

I put my old battery back in the laptop then tried to turn it on using a different power cord and it worked. I didn't need to replace my battery or laptop. The power cord had failed.

I hope that your issue is as simple as this solution. Try confirming whether your battery and power cord are still may just need to replace one or the other.

Thanks for using Fixya.
