It looks like your hard drive has failed, you could try booting with you rescue disk or any bootable disks which can be dowloaded for free

a) Ultimate boot disk for windows (Diagnotic software)

b) Ubuntu (Alternative operating system) Just "try ubuntu" don't install, well not at first.

Both will boot your computer with an operating system, you'll be able to check you HDD, you may also be able to retrieve data.

My compaq presario cq60 wont turn on


Does the laptop boot? Sound? Do you see a "ghost Image" in the monitor in a bright light? If so, Could be backlighting, Inverter, on/off switch that shuts the monitor on/off when you open and close the lid. Can you boot to safe mode with networking? If so, Open the Device Manager, Uninstall the Graphics Adapter, reboot, the software will apply a generic driver, If the Graphics adapter has not failed completely.

I have a compac presario cq60. when i turn on the computer the there is a blinking line in the top left corner. the computer does not come on.


Hmmm,
Ok, well if your machine shows the manufacturer logo (Compaq) and then goes to the blinking light there is usual and issue with either the hard drive (hardware) or the installed operating system (software). If the cursor is blinking before the logo this is usually an bad component (most likely ram or motherboard) causing the machine not to turn on correctly.
All of these issues need professional help, if not under warranty I would bring this to my local shop to be looked at.

How to fix compaq presario cq60-215dx black screen?


Hi,
With the laptop turned on, shine a bright light onto the screen. Can you see anything on the screen (like windows log on screen)? If so, your inverter has failed. This can be replaced relatively easily. Please post back with the results of the above.

My laptop will turn on the compac screen comes on then the screen goes black


Alright, does your laptop after the compaq logo come on goes black and is there a blinking scroll or does it say anything afterward? If so, it could be a harddrive failure, you can check this to make sure if it is the harddrive if you can go into the bios menu and see if the harddrive is presented. If it is not, then you probraly have a bad hard drive and it not loading after the "post" test.

Without more information i would have to say that your inverter has died. The inverter provides light for your screen.
