Compaq presario evo 1015v

Hi, Hoping you can help. I have the above named laptop which seems to have died on me. The power buttons lights up when switching on and the comp has a whirring sound but there is nothing but a black screen of death. I am desperate to get the comp working as it has some really important stuff of sentimental value and really do not want these gone. Have I lost these things? will they be damaged? how can i get my comp up and running again? Also, the laptop only operates with the power lead in and doesn't work if I unplug it but I used it for quite some time like that. Please advise. Any help woild be appreciated.

Sounds like a bad screen this might be able to be remedied by hooking the laptop straight to a computer monitor threw the ports provided in the back
also you could have bumped something loose inside like a video card if any cards or memmory comes loose this will give you black screen of death the laptop will have to opened and cards pressed down gently
theres the solution of your power supply on the laptop went out and you need a replacement
if power supply went out it doesnt hurt your comp it just makes it hard to run

Forgot power on password


Find the original sales-receipt, to prove that you are the owner.
Telephone COMPAQ. Once they verify that you are the rightful owner -- not a thief --- they can override the password.

Compaq Presario 1245


you could try booting on battery instead of mains and see what happens, also could the screen be switched off ? If you have access to another monitor, you could try plugging it in to see if the video output is ok. ( some laptops have a facility to switch off the screen display for security etc )

Compaq Presario 1245 doesn't start up


Most laptops have a video connector that you can use to connect you laptop to an external monitor. connect an external monitor to your laptop and see if anythig comes up on the external monitor.Your laptop has a key to switch between it's own screen and the external monitor.When you use the external monitor ,you'll have to use this key to switch to the monitor.Your battery should'nt matter if the laptop is running on AC.Let me know what happens and we'll go from there.

Try this:

With the AC adapter and battery installed and it will not power up remove the adapter and the battery. Then plug in the
AC adapter after both have been removed for 30 seconds and let the laptop set for 30 seconds and then unplug the AC adapter and then slide in the batter within 15 seconds and try to start the laptop.

Compaq 1015v screen problems


Under the right hand hinge, the plastic hinge cover has cut into one or more wires

Unplug the battery, unplug the mains, carefully undo the 2 screws immediately under the laptop AT THE TOP in the middle undet usb / VGA socket roughly (on the base)

the plastic panel around the power on button (and volume buttons) will pop out carefully

take off the hinge covers carefully

examine the wires... solder them, insulate ... you will see the problem

the laptop "strecthed" out with the screen open strecthes the nicked wire and it disconnects... when you shut it, it reconnects

that ok mate?

Laptop will not boot up


Whenever any of my clients say the word "Burnt" & "Smell" in the same sentance with reference to their PC's I always shudder... This unit almost certainly has to go to the "Shop" for repair. When you do so ensure ya get a firm FREE "Quote" and an explanation B4 proceeding.
