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?

Please check the air vents (inlet and outlet) and clean them up using a canned air, and use an external monitor to test this laptop. If the problem is not solved, then your laptop's GPU/motherboard is dying.

Hi. Every time I turn my Toshiba Satellite Laptop on (A305-S6905) it turns on normal then it goes to this black screen and says "A disk read error occurred press ctrl+alt+del to restart." I...


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

and use it to reinstall Windows.

I was dusting the keyboard and the screen went blank, when I do Ctrl Alt Del I get the screen with task manager when I exit it goes blank restarting does not help


Have you tried unplugging the keyboard and then trying to start the computer? Or trying a different keyboard? Sounds like a keyboard short or keyboard malfunction to me.

Try to restart the computer in Last known good configuration from the Advance boot options by restarting the computer using F8 key continuously.
If doesn't work then put in the Windows CD.
If Windows XP :
Restart the computer and keep tapping F12.
From boot menu highlight CD/DVD or IDE CD ROM or USB CD ROM.
Keep on pressing enter on it until get the screen loading files.
Then on the first Welcome page press "R"
If you have a dual-boot or multiboot system, select the installation that you want to access from the Recovery Console.
Enter the Admin password if dont have any password then leave blank and press enter.
Then type the command chkdsk drive /p /r
(drive is the partition on which windows is installed, C: or D:)
It will take around 30 to 45 mins to complete then restart the computer.

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 ?
