Has it been recently attached to a docking station, or a external monitor?

I do not have a Presario Compaq handy, but on my Dell, the key combination to change monitor outputs is Fn + F8.

If you can see which of your keys on your laptop keyboard switches the video output perhaps that might bring it to life.

but it might be more than that. is it that the computer is dead? no beeps, fans or activity? , or does it have all that, but no screen output?

try plugging in an external screen if you have the opportunity, and see if it shows anything.

My samsung r519 wont turn on. when i press the on button i here the fan going, yet the screen stay's black and only the power light comes on. what could the problem be?


Does the fan stay running? if it does! it is probably a motherboard issue, if the fan is working correctly it should wind down, and if the hard drive is working "hard drive light will flicker" hook a external monitor to the video output on the back of your laptop if you see windows boots up then it would indicate laptop screen problem, but if the fan and the power light are the only activity then the motherboard is the problem.

My PC kept getting this black screen saying something about rebooting so I tried several times but it didn't seem to work right. I turned off the PC and unplugged it from the back. I plugged it back in and...


a1240n (desktop)
the fans are dead. right? why not start with sounds.?
Desktops have 2 or 3 fans
1 in the PSU that must run fast,. does it ,heard and seen?
2: the CPU, has fan for sure, and must spin, blow air across the CPU heat sink not packed full of lint all PC this old ,always have,
3:then the GPU video card may have a fan that again must work.
so if all fans are dead, the psU IS BAD,

SURE I ASSUMED IT'S PLUGGED IN, AND THE WALL HAS POWER, after all

answering for
dead PC
dead black screens, never any text.
no sounds from PC
no monitor stated(i'd need that if the PC made sounds)

My screen is black it sound as if it is starting up but the screen stays black


The motherboard is cooked. There is a fix that might work breifly if you need to try and salvage your files. 1 power on. (lights and fan are running but nobodies home) place thelaptop in a bag for about 20 min. (it will get really hot) now hold down the power button unroll it is off. Now try booting. Sometimes holding down f10 as you power on helps.

Monitor screen stays black even though it's on


Remove the memory from your unit - power it up it should beep if full communication is still happening across your m/board. No beeps you board has died. if it beeps and your using two diffent memory modules just fitt one leave the battery out and power it up = if no display pull power swap out the memory and try again. if display occurrs you have a defective memory module - throw that failed unit away
