None of these people know anything. lol@pagebor you have no clue bro. Anyhow Josh I did some research and it looks like you are going to have to get you gpu reballed. It seems to be a common problem with the v3000. Many other people have experienced the same thing. It is a really expensive procedure but you might be able to find a place that is like a specialty shop and just does that. Good Luck man

Hello,

The first device the bios loads is the graphics display adapter, this is so it can display the boot sequence or give you access to your bios setup screens. You must have an issue with your display adapter. You could first try attaching an external monitor, but you may have the same problem if you don't its related to the laptop mainboard communicating with your display adapter and the flat panel.

Display adapters on laptops are usually soldered onto the mainboard inside and cannot usually be removed and replaced. You would have to seek out a repair shop willing to work on your model laptop. If you are still under warranty seek service through your laptop manufacturer.

Hope this has helped or fixed ya.

Compaq Presario pops up a system boot menu everytime at startup.


This comes up mostly when it requires a BIOS save. Try that. If that does not help, sometimes setting the default settings and saving will help.

How do i change the boot sequence. I have the Compaq sr1630- win xp os. Installed new hard drive after disk to disk copy. System has the Phoenix - Award Bios CMOS topman


During boot there should be a notifaction at the bottom of screen saying something like "Press Del for bios and F10 for boot menu" or something like that with other keys. If there is a boot menu option press the corresponding key and you will enter the boot menu. Here you can set the drive you want as first, second and depending on the motherboard third boot device.
If there is no boot menu option, enter the BIOS and go to advanced BIOS options, or something like that. There should be located a submenu called boot sequence, in which you can adjust the boot sequence too.

Reformat


(A) Try interrupting the boot sequence and telling the computer to boot using the last known good configuration. Here's how: 1) Turn the computer on, and press F8 repeatedly until the boot options menu appears (the menu items include "Start Windows Normally," "Use Last Known Good Configuration," etc.). Use the arrow keys to select "Last Known Good Configuration" and press ENTER. The computer should boot correctly.

if it dont this is the procedure given below to format the whole operating sys 1) Put the CD in the CD drive and turn the computer on. 2) As the computer begins to turn on, you should see the message "Press __ to enter setup" (it's usually F1, F2, or F4 - models vary). Press that key.
3) You should then see the Setup screen for the BIOS ("Built-In Operating System") - using the arrows, find the "boot disk priority" settings and select your CD Drive as the first priority.
4) Exit setup, saving changes (usually by pressing F10). The computer should then boot normally using the CD.

Turn on goes to black screen


Can you access F10 bios - if you can access bios you have a hard disc failure - remove you hard drive - boot the system without the hdd and see if the pixie boot boot goes through - seen it before - your hdd is unservicable.

Won't boot up. Help!


could be a number of things, but first check the disc shaped CR2032 cmos battery located on the motherboard, in case it is flat. Then when the pc boots, you should get the cmos menu to enable you to alter the time and date. If still no boot, when it is booting press F8 and see if you can get to safe mode, and when in the menu select last known good configuration and press enter or a reboot. If you see no bios screen and the flashing cursor appears in the top left of the screen the cmos chip on the board is damaged, and the motherboard needs replacing.
