    There are a lot of variables in that. Is your system having a specific problem? I do a lot of laptop repair, and its been my experience that most issues with laptops have to do with components /other/ than the motherboard. Please send me more info!

Okay. somewhere on the back or side of your laptop should be a standard VGA connector. Plug a regular computer screen in to that connector, turn the screen on, and start up your laptop. On your laptop's keyboard, in the lower left hand corner, should be a Function key, probably labeled 'Fn'; On one of the number keys along the top of the keyboard should be the Display Toggle, a key with two computer screen icons. Hold the Function key, and press the Display Toggle key - This should switch between the laptop's LCD and the computer monitor. If nothing comes up on the monitor, make sure the monitor is connected and on, that the laptop is on, and press the two keys two or three more times.

If nothing displays on either screen, either you have a bad memory stick, a bad hard drive, or, at worst, a bad motherboard(cheapest repair being memory, most expensive is the motherboard.)

If there is no display on the laptop's LCD, but the regular computer monitor shows your normal startup/windows screens, that tells you that either the LCD Inverter board is bad, or the LCD itsself is bad.

Hope this helps ya!

How can I get my Compac Cq58 back to factory settings

the main board should have a jumper that is labeled CLR CMOS you need to switch the jumper the pins 1 & 2 over to pin's 3 & 4 make sure you understand that this is for the mainboard factory reset if you're looking to reset the computer's operating system and programs to factory settings that is a different procedure.for that I believe you need to hold down the f12 button well you're turning the device on hold the button down until you get a menu the menu will guide you through the procedure

2 things find a universal power supply you can BARROW and plug that in if all works it's the power supply. If it does the same thing then your looking at the thermal couplers on the mother board, which would mean you replace the mother board.

Compac SR2011WM motherboard

replacing the mobo is much cheaper that to purchase a new computer but purchasing a new computer is much better than replacing your mobo. because in the near future, you need to upgrade your system for better use.

Display problem with dv 2000 laptop

I bet you have no display at all but everything powers on. If you hook it up to an external monitor it has no video either. These motherboards have a chipset issue and will require either a motherboard repair (some people have had some luck) or a new motherboard. There are no guarantees how long the new motherboard will last either. Although it may sound expensive I would suggest replacing the laptop unless you can get an inexpensive board and someone to install it

If you download cpu-x it will tell you a lot of infor about your pc and hardware. Also everest is a good one too.

Post back with what it says you have and we will see if you will be able to ocerclock it.

Be warned tho its a bit of an art and not just as simple as tuning up a couple of settings. :)
