Question about Compaq Presario 1200 Notebook

1 Answer

Blank/black screen Ever since I put in a cd and then almost immediately took it out the screen went blank (black). Restarting the computer didn't help. I took the battery out and put it back but this didn't solve the problem. I can turn the laptop on and off wiht the power botton but the screen remains black. What's the problem?

Go to Control Panel, (top right View Small Icons). Then look for Power Options. On this page, you'll have the option to leave the monitor on. You should also check "Advanced Power Options". Don't be afraid of the word, "Advanced." It only means "customizeable"

If your mouse isn't waking your monitor, try the keyboard's space bar. I found it works better than the mouse at waking a sleeping computer

The disk read error message appears when the motherboard can't read what is in the hard disk and use it to launch the Windows boot process.
It means that the hard disk is dead and everything on it is lost, including the recovery partition that new laptops use instead of the recovery disks. You will have to replace the hard disk (a quite complicated job that only an experienced person should do) then order a recovery disk from here

My iphone screen went black/blank...tried a double button restore but no luck


Try restoring your phone in itunes. Try the home button on off while connected to computer, then try restarting the computer. Did the battery go dead? Leave iphone Connected to computer for awhile. Mine came back after 6 hours connected.

Laptop monitor went black with no warning. Computer seems to still be working, but I can't see anything on the screen. I tried restarting and it didn't help. I'm assuming it's a hardware issue.


The problem you are facing is of a power scheme setting which is configured to go blank after a certain time of inactivity - You can change the power scheme option from your control panel power option icon and make it more timing or choose option never - please tell me the exact operating system you are using so that I can tell you what to do ?
