Compaq F700 Notebook- Having monitor darkness and computer freezing issues

All of a sudden my computer turns on, and then the monitor just goes dark. Also, I just had some "ghost like" lines go across the screen, and everything freezes. I think I may have some sort of virus, but is there any quick fix that you guys know of, without me having to bring it in for service?

Thanks SO much,

    I am having the same problem with my Compaq F700 notebook. There are lines across the display as soon as I start up and sometimes it freezes. It is not a virus problem for me since I formatted and reinstalled OS. I even installed the latest nvidia graphics driver from HP support website. It did reduce the occurrence of the event but not completely. - Ayon

In all likely hood, you have a loose connection or a worn LCD cable. This is a common failure in all laptops. If it is a loose connection, re-seating the connectors on both ends of the cable will cure this. If the cable has broken wires in it, it will have to be replaced. i would suggest a knowledgeable person or pro to tackle this for you.

How to replace backlight on compaq 2570us laptop


What is wrong with the backlight? The computer screen is just dark? I would start with the inverter. The inverter is usually the problem when the screen goes dark but people think it is the backlight. The backlight alone is very hard to change too. Go with the inverter, I would bet that is the issue.

The screen goes very dark within a minute after booting up = I can just barely see the menu page


When you say screen goes very dark when it booted to windows so it means that when you turned on the laptop when the dell logo flashes the screen was fine? if thats the case could you please try this. after turning on the laptop you will see the dell logo flashes immediately keep tapping on F2 and then it will show you the BIOS setup utility, please check if in BIOS setup display goes dark as well. If yes then try this, after turning on the computer when dell logo flashes keep tapping on F12 to boot menu then select utility partition to run the diagnostics. Please run test on the LCD check if display goes black when running the LCD test. Then try this when you sees the dell logo keep tapping on F8 to boot in safe mode check if in safe mode display goes very dark. Try this too, boot in F8 then select last known good configuration check if the settings on your display will be fix. If you can boot to safe mode no problem then uninstall the display or video driver. then restart computer.
You can also try to connect an external monitor if you have one just try to isolate if issue is on the LCD or the video card. If the display is dark as well in external monitor then video card needs to be reseated if fails then replaced. In situation like this most video cards is integrated to the motherboards. So replace motherboard.

If the LCD is dark but you see shadows and an external monitor functions normally, then the LCD backlight has failed and the LCD needs to be replaced

Compaq r3000 dark screen


If you already replaced the inverter and the screen still continues dark, you need to replace your lcd screen. Your video card is good due you have signal with external monitor.

COMPAQ screen fails to light up


Here issue is not clear, like if the issue is

1. There is no display on the notebook even though power LEDs are glowing?

2. There is display but very dimm/dark to see the display?

I will explain both the senarious, if the issue is something diff other than the above mentioned two, then you should get back to us by elaborating on the issue.

Solutions:

1. There is no display on the notebook even though power LEDs are glowing?

Sol: If this is the case, then try power drain:

Try doing power drain by taking out the battery & keep holding down the power button for complete one minute to drain out the power from the computer components. Restart the computer after putting the battery in.
Try restarting the computer only with the AC power, without the battery & vice-versa.

If the issue persists, then the issue would be with the motherboard components, you need to contact service center

2. There is display but very dimm/dark to see the display?

sol: If this is the case, then connect the external monitor to the notebook andcheck for the issue.

If the display is fine on the external monitor, and if you can see the display on the notebook screen by using the flashlight, then the issue will be with the back light of the notebook screen. Here also you have to contact service center.


Please reply if you need any further information on this issue.

Compaq Presario 700 laptop problem


Most of the time blue screens like that indicate hardware issues. You may try replacing the memory. I wouldn't put too much money into something of that age, though.
