Compaq Presario V6000, keeps rebooting, blank screen, and no post beeps. Replaced ram, battery, and power adapter. There is no hard drive light. I think it is a hardware problem, because it will not boot to safe mode. Thanks

    I have this problem. My screen just started fading out and then it went black. Nothing since then. I replaced the power supply and still no luck. Mine was under warranty. I'm sending it in soon.

    I flashed the bios on my Compaq Presario F759WM (F700 Series) laptop this mornnig and have the same problem. The computer keeps rebooting without every posting. The screen is completely black.



    I will try removing the CMOS battery (under memory access plate) and leave out for over 5 minutes (per service manual), as the hard reset did not work. Probably will need to replace the Motherboard ($150 bucks or so on EBAY).

I had same problem described above. I also just let it try to start over and over until it finally did. Hasn't happened again since, touch wood. The only thing different before it happened was I had the main battery out to transport it. Could be weak cmos battery perhaps.

I have the same problem with my compaq presario [hp]. it's done this to me a few times. what i do is just let it keep rebooting for about 40 times, then ... it suddenly starts up and you get the windows logo login. could be a sign of pending problem or just a hdd function. definately back up your data once you get it going ...

I had a problem of my Laptop (Presario F700) constantly powering on and off prior to any bios screen (Laptop not in use prior to start-system cool). I gave up on it after a few days and set it aside for a few weeks. Turned it on and haven't had problems since, Although the battery seems to power down quickly now. Seems like a complete system discharge may have solved my problem. Just putting that out there. Doubt it helps for everyone. Just saying check it if you are using it as a doorstop. Might be working now lol.

SOURCE: Compaq Presario V6000, keeps rebooting, blank screen,

If your pc reboots just after post my first place to look is to reseat the hard drive and see if that makes a difference. If it doesnt you could try and repairing your windows operating system or doing a system restore. If the os loads sucessfully then i would say you had a corrupt boot file maybe from a virus or a failing hard drive. I hope this helps

The DC pin on your laptop is bent/broken/loose. Look at where your power adapter plugs in on your laptop. Get a paper clip, bend it out to make a long paper clip and slightly push its tip on the pin inside your laptop. If the pin moves chances are either the DC pin needs to be soldered down or needs to be replaced. The part is usually cheap around $10 but the labor can cost more than $50.

Compaq presario v6101uswont boot not even start up screen


When you plug in the power cord is there any lightswhatsoever on the laptop, where the plug goes in or on the AC Adapter of thepower cord?

When you press the power button do you hear fans running, hard drive spinning,lights on the computer, hear any beeps or lights constantly blinking, hear theDvD/CD drive click and the light on the drawer of the DvD/CD turn on for asecond or two? If so the laptop is trying to boot or may have booted, butthe screen is not showing for some reason.

Beep tones and blinking lights tells the technicians what is going on with thelaptop and why it is not booting. Most times it's a motherboard issuewhen you hear beeps or blinking lights continuous.


Maybe you have a Static Charge Buildup. Remove the Power Cord, Remove theBattery, then Press and Hold the power button for 30seconds. After 30 seconds plug the power cord back in (leave the batteryout) and hit the power button to see if it boots. If it does, you can putthe battery back in and let it charge.

Power up the external monitor first and then boot up the laptop, the video info will automatically divert to the external monitor.
If you do not see a Windows image on the external monitor then it is definitely a motherboard issue, because the video card is built in on the motherboard.
The Video card uses shared RAM (part of the RAM module/s ), try re-seating the RAM modules, also test the RAM modules.
You can test the hard drive by removing the hard drive and connecting it to an USB hard drive adapter, then connect the adapter into a working computer's USB port. If the hard drive is OK, this computer will see it as an external storage device and you can open the various folders and files on the hard drive.

Hello,

There are a number of things that can cause this to happen. Try taking the battery out of the notebook, disconnect the AC adaptor (if in use) press the power button a few times. Re-install the battery, reconnect the AC (if needed), press and hold the power button for about 2 seconds. This is a hard reboot and should correct you issue. When the notebook powers up, make sure you remove any cd's in the cd-rom drive.

Good Luck,

Have you tried turning it on and selecting the function key combination for the screen? For example some screens use FN+F7, hold down the Function key and F7 to cycle between presentation modes.

Compaq Presario V6000 rebooting blank screen


I am almost sure that it is a motherboard. When all of the lights stay solid and it seems to start, but shuts off is most likely the motherboard. You can save the data if you get a proper enclosure for the hard drive. You can call Compaq support to make sure that those signs are the motherboard.

Hey Boots_Calara,

In most of hp/compaq dv6000 series that i have worked on have bad ram , easiest way is taking out the ram and replace it. Or if you have a friend that has a hp or compaq laptop switch the ram and try boot it with there ram. Try it before you replace the bad ram.

2 beeps & nothing on the screen


Hi Tom,

Please verify the capacity and how many memory modules you have in the system?

If your system won't turn on and get 2 beeping sounds. It is an issue with your memory (RAM) you may need to reseat the memory card. After reseating the memory card (RAM) and the issue persist and i suggest to check also the warranty of your system from your coomputer manufacturer for part replacement.

keep me posted.

regards,

Jeff
