Question about Compaq Presario 700 470024-192 Notebook

1 Answer

Black screen Hello, I was just wondering if you might be able to help me. My compaq presario laptop will not work. When I push the power button it lights up and it sounds like the computer is running, but the screen stays black. Then, in maybe 15 seconds the lights on the buttons go off and the computer stops running. Then in about 15 seconds more the lights come back on with a black screen....and this pattern just continues. Any suggestions??? I would appreciate anything.

    I am sorry to hear about your loss. No apologizes are necessary to me.



    Yes, I still have this problem. I just turned it on again and the power button seems to come back up as it is supposed to, and it does allow me to turn it off by holding down the power button.

Hello,

Sorry to be a few days in getting back to you on your request. Our system of alerting us about these requests does not work properly right now and I've been distracted by a recent death in our family.

Do you still need help with this?

Your problem is quite similar to a 'stuck' button. But, from your description it occurs when you press the Power Button. Can you tell if the button feels recessed after using it or does it pop backup up as expected? If it returns to normal for you and this behavior returns as well. Do you power off by removing the power cord and battery? or are you able to do this by holding the power button down for 5 seconds?

If you have to remove the battery and power cord, you will have to take this to a service center or a local tech who has a reputation of working on Laptops. I suspect a bad switch that would need to be replaced or examined and repaired. This requires the Laptop to be disassembled and you should not do this on your own unless you are absolutely confident in your ability to not affect any components and damage them in the process. Disassembling a Laptop has its hazards and people who do this without foreknowledge usually damage their laptop.

I do not support you doing this by yourself but to rely upon an Expert Repair Location.

Regards,
Worldvet

    When it is turning on can you press F2 or F10 and access the setup screens?

The small rubber button on my compaq presario V2000 isn't working. When I open the screen of my laptop the light on the screen will switch on for just a moment, and then switch off. How can I fix it so the...


Hello.

The most common reasons are the battery, power jack and power adapter/cord.

Power off and remove the battery. If the laptop powers on with just the adapter connected, your battery is faulty.

If you move/wiggle the power adapter at the point where it connects to the laptop, and the power goes off and on, the power jack is the problem.

The power jack is inside the laptop and either needs soldering or replacement.

If no change, the power adapter is probably faulty and needs replacement.

Hope this helps.

Presario blank screen


I think this might be a common problem caused by windows sleep/hibernate not working (MS never actually got it to work well)
Try holding down the power button for 30 seconds. Wait 10 seconds, then start up again. If you get the same problem, try tapping the space bar repeatedly...
Otherwise your going to need to boot off a windows disk, and do a re-install/repair.

LCD screen blank out


look at your function keys (F4 F7) from what i can see on the picture but it will somehow resemble an lcd screen. Try to push the Fn button along with the F-button that has the "lcd" picture at the same time. If this does not work pushing it once try to push it twice. After each time release both buttons and wait a couple seconds after each attempt and see if this fixes the problem
