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.

Compaq presario 700 monitor off


Hi
Maybe, depending on the problem. Laptop monitor problems fall into three categories. 1. Screen electronics or lamp. 2. Inverter. 3. Laptop video chip. I've been repairing latops ever since they arrived on the market. First connect an external monitor to the laptop - this will show you whether or not the laptop motherboard is working correctly. If it is then you'll need to replace either the screen or the inverter. So as not to waste alot of money, at this point I would suugest going to a reputable repair person or check my website www.micromendllc.com

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!
