    Sounds like the laptop is hibernating. Has it always done this? what is the OS you are running? How do you get it going again?

My compaq pc notebook is dead. The power light is on and i can hear the cd click but screen is black and won't load a cd either. then the computer shuts down completely and tries to boot up again. I did...


Base from the description of your problem , this seems to be a motherboard failure already. The blacking out of your screen before this problem started is a sign of something on the motherboard is already failing.

Now since the computer will just power ON and automatically shut itself down is definitely an implication of motherboard and processor failure it can be due to overheating problem, so if you want to continue using this laptop a motherboard replacement is needed, you can take replace it by yourself if you have any experience doing those kind of things but if not better take it to a repair shop or better yet do a upgrade and get a new laptop then.

My screen shuts off but the laptop itself does


Try putting on an external monitor, if the external monitor stays on while the laptop lid goes out, your laptop monitor (lid) is going out (yes it happens quite a bit).

If the external monitor goes off also, Check all your power settings and video settings for the laptop (power setting can be found with the screensaver section of the desktop settings) - if all that is as it should be - it means it is your video card, and since the video card is mounted (intigrated) on the motherboard, there is not much more to do than replace the motherboard or get a new laptop.

Locks screen when I close the lid on my hp pavilion dv9740us


computer has gone into hibernation. Best to shut that function off, and replace with standby.

If you want it to hibernate, press the power button once, and it should come back on to the log in screen.

Open/Closing


CONTROL PANEL --> POWER OPTIONS --> ADVANCED TAB

Select "When I close my lid (or something to that effect)" and change it to "do nothing" or "ask what to do". There is nothing I hate more than a misbehaving hibernation mode!
