Finish installing the motherboard correctly.  Use the Health Monitor screen in the BIOS to get clues and see what it's unhappy about.

If that doesn't fix it; please file a problem in a category specifically for the motherboard you installed.

Compaq laptop green pink screen pixalted


One of the things is to hook it to another monitor and see if that still happens. If it does not then it is most likely the screen on the laptop. Not to worry though it could be the cable that connects the laptop motherboard to the screen. When you open and close the lid, it flexes the cable and the little wires in can break. The cable is not cheap though. One way to test this is to change how far the lid opens by flexing it open and closed to see if the screen changes. If it does then it is that cable.

Screen shows orange with black lines and then goes turquiose with ghosting, turns to normal screen when lid is nearly closed?


Check with the LCD by attaching one side to the LCD and other side to the laptop. If display is clear on the LCD then your laptop's screen have some problem otherwise your laptop's motherboard have some problem

I put in a 512MB PC-133 memory stick and all my pc does is beep 3 times when I turn it on


1). Changed ram is of high frequency so its not supporting ur motherboard, change the ram and see to its frequency (eg. pc100, pc133)
2). Or you might have wrongly attached the ram to motherboard, so ram slot might have burnt.

Pc has power but nothing shows on screen. motherboard doesnt beep once like it used to when turned on but green light is on indicating its ok.


dear,

Remove the ram and check, is the motherboard beeps or not..

it should beep as long beeps....and should continue beeping after serveral times until u switch off it...
then reconnect the ram after swiching off power...

remove the data cables of hdd and cd/dvd and then try to switch it on...
if it works fine then reconnect it properly...

Fault can be in Ram or data cables perhaps...

regards,

hope it will fix the issue so dont forget to rate it...

I have an Evesham Explorer A5500 notebook Laptop and earlier when i was usuing it the screen became covered in white lines i rebooted to try and fix the problem but now when i turn on my laptop the screen...


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.

this motherboard or charging circuit in the laptop has been damaged, with the video problem I would go with a motherboard that is fried, so either replace the motherboard or charging circuit board or buy a new laptop

I have acer aspire 5040 Laptop computer and when i start it up it won't boot into windows as it has light blue screen and asks me to press F1 and shows resource Conflict pci on motherboard Bus 06 Device 06...


Re-install windows, then it will ask you for the Restore disk 1 then 2 then 3. I think the Ghost that is factory installed is a fars.
If it doesnt ask you for the Restore disks - just stick # 1 in and she'll tale over from there and re-write the Ghost issue again ...
I did that same for my Boss's 5040 last week. Dont forget to go into the Bios and reset the Boot sequense to CD Rom, and then
change the Booting sequense back after the restore has taken place.

Give it a shot Bud.
