Hi,

When you start up the laptop, tap the F2 or F10 key like a piano in four four time and see if you do not get a bios setup screen, sometimes called a System Setup Screen. If you do post back to me as soon as you can and await my instructions, but basically you want to page through the setup screens until you find a setting for the external display default. Change this back to the laptop panel. It is probably set to an external display monitor or LCD panel.

On your keyboard are special keys you are probably familiar with. These are used in conjunction with the Fn key. To activate an external monitor and turn off your LCD display, you would press the Fn key + the F key that has an icon on it in the same color as the Fn keytop. The icon for the external monitor looks something like this |O| with the circle here being replaced by a rectangle. Often this is just replaced with two rectangles, one filled with shade one not. The F Key is almost always the F5 key.

To test this, start your computer, then press the Pause key. Then press the Fn key plus F5 or which ever key it was that you found with an icon as I attempted to desribe.

My guess this is what has happened, the alternate external display is activated and this needs to be changed. Sometimes you have to go into the System setup pages and tell the laptop you are on the Panel display by default and not the external monitor, otherwise you will have to press the Fn key sequence every time you boot.

Let me know how you make out.

Regards,
Worldvet

Only shows compaq on screen


I work with Compaq computers now and usually your problem points to the hard drive. I know Compaq's will stay on that screen if the hard drive has failed. Try another hard drive would be my suggestion.

Hope this helps.

I bet your hard drive crashed on you. You might have to buy yourself a new hard drive and replace your old one with it. Then format it and install a fresh copy of your Operating System on it. Your error condes here indicate to me that you either got a blue screen or similar. Blue Screens and/or the code that you stated here are usually caused by a software issue, and are rarely hardware issues. But in this case, you may have gotten something bad on your computer, such as a virus or serious spyware, that wiped out your Operating System And caused your hard drive to crash/become corrupt. As I mentioned, try replacing your hard drive. Hope this helps.
