    I came home tonight from class and randomly there was a black screen on my Compaq...I thought maybe I added a screen saver and forgot, but nothing comes up when i touch the mouse or keyboard. Even hooked it up to another monitor and it started to work but then went back to the black screen! Help!

    I am computer illiterate. What do you mean by "re-image?" I am able to get visual afer I let the laptop sit for a day. I have restore to an earlier date and I am running Spybot right now. Do you think what I am doing will take care of the problem?

My screen stays black when you turn it on. model HSTNN-C17C which is located under the battery. Presario V5000

This isn't a desktop PC by the way. Do any of the lights come on? If not, try to run the laptop from the AC power. If the lights come on but no display, then your backlight or inverter on the LCD panel for your V5000 might be bad.

Could be a stuck key somewhere, has anything been wasted on the keypad, tap the keys one by one to refresh is. Could also be that the keyboard is broken.

Blank screen problem witn presario v5000

Remove HD (optional, just in case u shake up the unit too much),

Remove battery,
remove 2-3 screws found in the battery comparment

Pry up the keyboard bezel/power button cover by accessing slots above F2 & PAUSE keys,
it will feel extremely tight but work it a little,
try not damage your keyboard (try and pry/separate the back of the cover first).

Look top-left,
u'll see a cable leading from the motherboard to the display

CAREFULLY unplug the white connector and replug FULLY FULLY.
PLEASE pry and push the white connector housing ONLY not the fine wires.


If not i can take u to more advanced testing with meter and probes.
