    With or without my battery, it will power up for about 5 seconds only. No images appear on the screen. If you suggest a technician, it will obviously cost quite a bit of money.

Could be a defective/dead battery. Try removing the battery and connecting directly to power supply to see if this is the causse of the issue..

    Could be an issue with the power board, or failing components on it. I would get a qualified technician to take a look at this..

Sir i have hp compaq cq40 laptop having win xp .it got effected by some virus . whenever i try to boot it it gives error in some blue screen nd stops processing without booting up windows

Try starting the laptop in SAFE MODE.

To do this turn it off and wait 20 seconds. Then press the power button to restart, and as it is starting up press F8 every second or so until you get a screen that offers options - one of these options is to start in SAFE MODE WITH NETWORKING. Select this option and the laptop will start up Windows in SAFE MODE. The screen will display in low resolution (Large icons etc.)

From here you have the ability to run anti-virus software and diagnose problems. If you don't have anti-virus then try downloading MalwareBytes (google it) and run that - it is a free virus and malware detector.

If your machine will not start in safe mode you may have a hardware problem.

When i turn on my compaq laptop, why does it show a blank screen and shut on and of on its own?

its overheating or you have damaged windows. if you see the windows screen, try pressing F8 repeatedly as soon as you power it on and you will see a menu where you can select safe mode. try it and see if it starts, if it wont, or keeps restarting try to boot with a op sys cd just to see if it stays on, if not its the heat. if it does its your windows files and you must reinstall

Computer won't boot, just displays they compaq symbol when turn on...any ideas?

Have you tried to reset the BIOS by clicking either clicking F2 , F12 or DELETE depending on the computer you have to try to do trial a error until you find it ((To restart the computer without having to hold the power button Hold CTRL+ALT+DELETE)) when you do go and select {optimized defaults or factory defaults} then save and restart. If that doesnt work start the computer in safe mode by clicking F8 repeatedly and selecting safe mode or last known good configuration.

((((This applies to a Microsoft Windows Operating System Only)))

Hope this helps you with your problem.

Power problem with HP Compaq d530 Convertible Minitower Desktop

Try this first : Load the bios (F10 - vista or F1 - XP), Load setup defaults F5. then Save changes F10, and try restarting your pc.
Secondly, after restarting your pc, on the HP invent screen, keep tapping on F9 for the diagnostic test
If theres no any error message, press any other key ACCEPT for the 'R' key to restart or repeat the test.
Other sollution ----------------------
Try loading into safe mode F8, select on the safe mode and let the computer stays into safe mode for sometime.
If the pc doesnt restart, it means theres no any HW problem in ur pc. If it does the same, it means, you will need to check your Power supply, M/board with your tech

Black Screen / Computer Stays in Standby Mode

Completely remove the battery and unplug the power cord for a few minutes. Reinsert battery and power up. You can also hit F8 when starting and see if you can boot into safe mode.
