Ok try pluging an external screen into it and see if it will show anything you may need to hit function(fn) f5 a few time to get a setting for two monitors if this works i think your laptop screen or controller is malfunctioning and you should take it to your loacl specialist computer repair store and get their tech's to look at it or you could just keep using the external screen for a bit.

hope this helps and good luck with the problem and by the way don't forget to vote for this solution.

Probably you have set the screen resolution too high. I'll give instructions to fix it assuming you have Windows XP.
Switch on the computer and let the Compaq logo appear.
Before you see the Windows logo, press F8 button several times. You will get the boot menu.
Do you have an option 'Enable VGA mode'? If so select it with arrow keys. Or else select 'Safe Mode'.
Press enter. If my guess is right, the computer will boot normally, **** with larger graphics on screen.
Set the screen resolution to 1024 x 768. (I guess you know how to do it).
Apply the settings and restart the computer.
Hope this will solve your problem. Good luck!

I need help resetting my computer to its factory default settings it is a compaq presario cq60-615dx


to reset your laptop, restart your computer and constantly press F11 once the first black screen on your laptop displays, or the Compaq logo display. Your computer will automatically load to recover manager and you can factory restore you computer from there.

2nd option: click start menu, click all programs and scroll to "Hp backup and recovery" or "Backup and recovery" click it and proceed for the factory default setting.

Good luck.

Are you able to start the computer in safe mode?
Try starting the computer into safe mode by following the instructions found here.
If the computer loads in safe mode, then you can try disabling some startup programs by reading the instructions found here and restarting your computer. If this fails to fix it, you'll probably need to reinstall windows.
