Question about HP Compaq Presario V2000 Notebook

No screen after Boot

It will show the windows starting screen. And before it loads the desktop, the screen goes blank. Same thing when using the external monitor port. Found a similar problem listed, but I can not see anything with the screen held close to a light.

    Dageezer, F8 does not work. Rebooting via Safe Mode does not work.

    Falseadress, how do I reformat if I can't even see what's on the screen after the boot screens?

    Alright, well I found the Driver CD. Tried that, still didn't work. Loaded the XP Home recovery CD. That also failed. Screen went blank after a minute of the Blue Screen for windows reload. Thanks for your help guys, looks like I might be out a laptop after three years.

If you cannot get any video past the Windows Splash screen, then the video adapter is likely failing. If under warranty call the wrrany department. If not then a replacement motherboard may resolve.

If you can boot the XP CD, and re-install XP, that may resolve, but from the description, the video adapter is failing. (You can format the drive in the XP setup.

I would reccmond the same thing as the previous poster but you should but if all of that fails, reformat the system. Sometimes the F8 options fail you.

    I think its a bad CCFL inverter. You should try looking at the screen closer. I had fixed a problem with a laptop that had similar problems.
    Give me a model number of the laptop and i will try finding you a replacement part.

Try booting to the safe mode (f8) and see if there is any difference. If there is no difference, the video adapter is most likely failing.

If you can boot into the safe mode, then reboot and try the vga mode on the same menu, if you can boot to the desktop, then try to increase the resolution. if it fails, try a new video driver.

I am working on my friends gateway mx6450 laptop when you turn it on it goes to a blank screen after the welcome screen. I have tried to run on safe mode. It goes to a blank screen with the safe mode...


1. Refresh the screen: Right-click on the desktop and select [refresh]
The icons will appear.

if not,
Boot to the Safe Mode screen and select "Start in Last Known Good Setting"

The laptop loads up, lets me sign in, then goes blank, no icons


Try booting to the safe mode (F8 at boot) and see if you can log in via the safe mode. If you can't, try booting to your Windows CD, go to recovery console and run CHKDSK /R
If you still can't log in, try running diags see if the hard drive lists a failure.
if no hardware failure found, there and none of those solutions work, then re-installing windows will likely be the final resolution

Computer turns on, wont load windows, then goes to a blank screen


When a PC boots first it checks all of the hardware to ensure all is working properly. The stage two of that is turning it over to the operating system. When it is turned over to the operating system the first thing it looks for is the Master Boot Record which is a small program on your hard drive that starts your operating system. If it cannot find the Master Boot Record or if the boot record is corrupt then the operating system will not load. In order to fix put the WIndows operating system disk into your CD ROM and let it boot to the CD ROM. Allow it to load for a few minutes and it will eventually ask you if you want to proceed with the installation or "repair". Choose repair. This is one option to fix your boot record.
Second option is to use Recovery Console. Put the Windows CD in the CD ROM. Click on Start and then Run. In the run box type D:\i386\winnt32.exe /cmdcons (where D is your CD ROM drive). Follow the instructions on the screen. You will be at the command line, type in FIXBOOT. This will also fix your master boot record. Follow these procedures anytime you have an operating system load error use the Recovery CD as your last resort. Hope this helps.
