Switch ON the PC, boot the PC in 'Safe Mode' by pressing F8 button.

Let windows boot in Safe Mode and log in to windows.

Go to 'Start'--->Programs--->Accessories--->System Tools--->System Restore

Here you will have to check "Restore computer to an earlier time' and click Next
Now you will find one Month Calander window with Dates below, go to the last month by clicking the '<' sign in the upper left hand corner of the Month Calander and select any date thetis in Bold.

Click on Next and System Restore will start and windows will take a reboot.

After reboot your problem should be resolved.

As soon as your laptop powers on (even before you see anything on the screen), repeatedly tap on F* until it takes you to the advanced boot menu. Choose the option for Last Known Good Configuration and see if it boots. If it doesn't, just restart your pc and repeatedly tap on F8 again to get back to the menu. This time, select Safe Mode. If you're able to boot to safe mode, you can do system restore to restore it to a date when it was last working fine (XP: start > all programs > accessories > system tools > system restore, Vista/7: start > type system restore on search box).

Compaq Presario f700 NOTEBOOK.
first off im amazed it can even blink bark or glow at all
laptop are scaled in DOG YEARs.
my first guess is the not tried yet, exernal VGA jack works
so only your screen is bad.
as all are now with CCFL lamps dead or its power pack.
called "inverter"
the lamps go dim, yellow ,flicker then die, all do if CCFL
best is upgrade top LED laptop and w7 and newer OS.
the BIOS pages must work or the screen is bad
seems power is ok, to me. and you.
it came with VISTA.
year 2007?
im reading your service manual now.
and see this?

that is CCFL lamp not LED>
this is bad or the inverter card that drives is is bad if BIOS FAILs
to show in the screen, My best guess, no tests by me,
testing is the only sure way to fix problems not guessing.
why not get tech to fix it?

Presarios normally let you access BIOS setup by pressing F10 as soon as the Compaq logo pops up on the screen when starting it. I've read that F1 is the key on some pre-2006 Presarios. Pressing the F10 key multiple times immediately after starting can be helpful.

Hi,i have a hp g6000 laptop with a compaq f700 motherboard fitted.the laptop works fine,but does not recognise the dual core processor or wireless card(not show in device manager with wireless button on or...

The reason it shows the compaq logo is because that is the motherboard you have installed. HP is just your case if I am reading your question properly. Did you custom build this? Which processor is in it? Probably the wireless card isn't being recognized because of your 64 bit operating system. Windows 7 has a lot of hardware driver problems right now.
