If you've turned it on after it was in water, it is probably toast. You need to let it dry out for at least a week before even attempting to turn it on again. If that doesn't work, then the electronics on the inside have all shorted out and will need to be replaced.

Thanks and please take a moment to rate as fixya. Thank you.

    Can you please come back and at least rate this as helpful? You asked me a question, and I gave you the answer. I'm sorry the answer doesn't fix your problem but when you get electronics wet there is nothing else you can do.

Compaq Presario pops up a system boot menu everytime at startup.


This comes up mostly when it requires a BIOS save. Try that. If that does not help, sometimes setting the default settings and saving will help.

When you first power on the computer tap the key. If you get the boot menu then more then likely you have a video software driver issue when your computer tries to load the operating system. Only recourse is to fix the conflict or reload OS ( operating system).

I have a gateway laptop and when I start it up, it will show the windows start up screen and then the screen goes black. How do I fix this?


Something to try:

Power Off computer. Turn it back ON then when you see gateway logo start tapping on the F8 key and it will take you to Windows Advanced Options. Select safemode and press enter. If it ask you to select a Operating System just press enter. You will see white text. Once you get to the icons on your desktop It will state that it is running in safemode click on yes, then go to
Start Menu then All programs then Accessories then System tools then System Restore. Select to restore to an earlier date then in the calendar select a bolded date at least a week ago. Follow the prompts and your system will restart. This does not hurt to try. Hope that helps.

Start your computer in safe mode (press F8 before you get the Windows splash screen). I usually suggest pressing F8 continuously as soon as you see anything on the screen.
Once you get the white menu up that allows you to enter safe mode, let the computer boot into safe mode and do a system restore back to when you know the system worked.
That should solve the problem.

Take a bright light and shine it on the screen when it is on. Can you barely see any display, but really dark? If so, the lamp or the lamp inverter has failed (some laptops use LEDs instead of CCFL lamps and has no inverter either).

Just hooking up to another display doesn't necessary tell you anything if it doesn't show anything. As sometimes you have to change a settings in the BIOS, use the Fn key plus another key that looks like a monitor, or change it through a display menu on the screen.

Old gateway desktop tries to start up but just shows white screen or menu


the last time my friend's old cp would not start and showed a white screen, it was nothing else than changing the power box that had gone dead from overheating - the fan was stuck hard since weeks!
