If it looks ok indoors on battery power, then you may just have a dull display, if it looks quite dark indoors then you may need a new backlight, these are quite cheap, just google your make and model

The hard drive may be going bad. Try booting into Safe Mode to see if it boots into Windows. Then I highly recommend backing up all documents onto a flash drive or portable hard drive.

Compaq laptop, pink and green pixalted screen.


compaq day, endless posts... endless dead old PC's
who owns this old junk and why?
no LT stated, of the 1000s
no OS stated , XP?" what?

ever heard of photos, take a picture post it so folks can see reality?
all PCs break all do and often and LT vastly more often, its portable and that breaks them faster. x10.

what PC< we cant guess PC hear
LT ran at HP from 1984 to now. vast types, and compaq to.
simple tests.
1: ;runs ok with battery out , BINGO !!!! battery number 1 failure.
2: lent, lent packs vents overheats and CPu and GPU go NUTS.
all puters do this if not cleaned 1 time per year, all do. its called servicing the PC .
3: bad power pack of power is weak the electronics goes NUTS.
4: does the external VGA jack work to a external screen. yes/no.?
5: is this a 2008 Laptop with the GPU SOLDER BALL FAILURES?

next time post the PCs real model number.
or the service tag here is one random.







tag1-yurc2tkkgu0y15feq43cohvv-3-0_0.jpg this LT?


LOL 1984?
1984-yurc2tkkgu0y15feq43cohvv-3-1.jpg
if I had any compaq relics' (most have a value of $20 or less)
id buy this.

see walmart see those great deals on pC that are good and supported?
be best,

Hp pavilion ze1210 intermittently boots up or will not turn on at all.


ok it's a laptop., old.
let me guess 2003 made, square 4:5 screen
XP removed, (smart idea) Linux installed.
I guess the screen is 100% dead, not one pixel ever glows, right?
no text, ,no BIOS screens on demand, (esc key pressed, power on)

1: step 1 is always remove the main big battery. run now?
2: try external VGA screen yet, to see if the old internal screen is dead? see that VGA jack on the rear, and the hot function key that turns it on, bingo.?
(use a flash light to see if screen internal has data but the
CCFL back lamp is dead.?)
4: if bios is dead and both screens fail,what is next.?
19vdc from the power pack must reach the guts (MOBO)
if not all HP lap tops die. use a voltmeter or get a spare power pack
many power packs this old are now bad. 14 years old,
the can be good, bad, or weak. weak is bad.
5: sparks is a bad thing, in all cases, when heard it needs service.

BSOD:

Im trying to run nhra drag racing2 on windows vista but I get a black screen when trying to play game although i can hear game music in background. the task manager screen says that the game is not...


Since the game was released in 2002 it may have a few problems running on today's systems. I would first try running it in compatibility mode. Right click on the icon you use to launch the game and go to properties. From there click on the compatibility tab. Select the check box that says "Run this program in compatibility mode for" and then from the drop-down box select Windows XP (Service Pack 3). Then click Apply and OK. Then try launching the game again and see if it runs any better. If not, try it again but in compatibility mode for XP (Service Pack 2). Good luck!

Sounds like a definite no boot issue. Turn the system on to the diagnostics (Fn + Power) see if the diagnostics show a failure. If the hard drive passes diagnostics, then boot to the XP CD and try repairing the WIndows installtion
