Compaq Presario F500 Monitor Problem

My laptop has just recently started having problems with the monitor coming back up after the lid has been closed. When the lid is opened all I get is a blank screen. No amount of hitting enter or any keys bring it up.
I actually have to turn it completely off and back on to get the monitor to display.

I'm running Vista.

Thanks,
Chris

    black screen nothing comes up

  • The Compaq's had faulty graphics video cards made by Nvidia. This is a known issue that you will see documented all over the internet. The guys athttp://www.generalsystemsconsulting.com fixed mine at a reasonable price $125.00 includes return shipping back to me.

This might fix your problem. There is a problem sith the bios on select F500 models. Yours might fall in that category.

Hp presario f600 boots and runs but screen wont cut on


Well if you are sure the computer is running, then you could have a bad inverter, take a flashlight and shine it on the screen, if you see the icons and computer booting, then you have a bad inverter, go on amazon and order another LCD. also if you have a desk top monitor, connect the monitor to your laptop, then boot up your laptop, hold down the "FN" (function) button and press "F4", you should see everything on your desktop monitor. Good luck.

My compaq presario f500 laptop monitor wont stay lit. It seems to be a loose wire or something because i can get it to turn on temporarily by swiveling the monitor on its hinges. Any help would be greatly...


Ok. I have this exact same laptop and not so much the exact same issue. But I can tell you, screen issues are one of the problems that goes with a laptop that is GOING TO FAIL.

Go to hplies.com and you will see almost 2,000 users with the same issue. The problem lies with the nVIDIA GFX chip on the motherboard. THE ISSUE IS UNREPAIRABLE. Any repairs will force the laptop to fail again.

This issue has actually landed me in small claims court where I am suing for hte full cost of this laptop because not only is hte laptop defective, nVIDIA admitted it, and HP covered it up.

Join us at hplies.com and we will give you the know how to get this issue fixed/your $ back. We even have links to all of the information!

HP Compaq f700 Laptop keeps on restarting without any display. No problem with HD and RAM. Problem reoccured even after replacing display chip. Please help.


try removing battery and small watch battery and disconnect power for 10 min then replace and restart. If it comes back on it will do it again when you turn it off, so don't, lol. I have this problem and everyone says these have motherboard problems. From what I can see they don't remember bios on startup. I'm still searching, Hope this helps.

Lap top on but no display


  • First thing to do is to plug your laptop into a monitor. 99% of laptops i have seen have a monitor connection on the rear or somewhere on the laptop.

    Then if you are certain the machine is working ok, you can look closer at the screen being the problem. It may not be the problem. For laptops with dead screens out of warranty, making it an IMmobile computer by adding a monitor is often a good solution. Turn it into a PC. Most laptops will also have somewhere to plug a mouse and keyboard.

  • need to hook an external monitor up to it at least once to isolate the problem. So you can find out if it is the on-board video or some other internal component in the laptop playing up, or if the screen is simply shot.
  • hope your problem will be over

Compaq Presario 1245 doesn't start up


Most laptops have a video connector that you can use to connect you laptop to an external monitor. connect an external monitor to your laptop and see if anythig comes up on the external monitor.Your laptop has a key to switch between it's own screen and the external monitor.When you use the external monitor ,you'll have to use this key to switch to the monitor.Your battery should'nt matter if the laptop is running on AC.Let me know what happens and we'll go from there.
