Seems to be a known issue on this model. Attributed to a bad video adapter on the motherboard. Also says to check the the memory is correctly seated which fixed one 'black screen' scenario. Read the link

https://www.ifixit.com/Answers/View/128612/Laptop+turns+on+but+screen+is+black.

Attach the laptop to an external monitor to confirm. If you do get a picture, it is the display.

Xp had a lot of issues with shutdown early on, but they should have been mostly resolved.

1. Make sure windows is up to date, IE all updates.
2. Make sure all drivers are up to date.
3. Run some anti virus/adware/spyware programs, could be something preventing your computer from shutting down.
4. You aren't unplugging and USB/firewire devices without stopping it first are you?

top key row, 4th button from right, is wifi on light,
answering for this LED lamp is dead, when pressed.
means driver dead.
Presario 2000 PC old, no OS stated so answers will be wrong, lacking that KEY FACT unstated by you.
6 years old PC true name below.
HP 2000 Notebook PC Compaq Presario CQ58 Notebook PC
came new with Windows 8.
if you upgraded to w10 things break sure. did you?
here is the problem with you not stating the service tag full data and that Pn 123abc.ABA#
the ABA tells the HP expert what chip is there.
modules called wifi mini-pci.

Item Component Spare part number (the offical list of chip OPTION only for YOUR PC sold new)
(16)
WLAN module:
Atheros AR9485 802.11b/g/n 1x1 WiFi Adapter
675794-001
Atheros 9485GN 802.11b/g/n 1x1 WiFi and 3012 Bluetooth 4.0 Combo Adapter
655795-001
Broadcom 4313GN 802.11b/g/n 1x1 WiFi and 20702 Bluetooth 4.0 Combo Adapter
657325-001
Ralink WLAN Ralink Ripple3 RT5390F_802.11 b/g/n 1x1 PCIe HMC
670691-001
Atheros AR9565 802.11bgn 1x1 WiFi + BT4.0 combo Adapter
690019-001
Ralink RT3290LE 802.11bgn 1x1 Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.0 Combo Adapter
690020-001
Ralink RT5390R 802.11bgn 1x1 Wi-Fi Adapter
691415-001

so what we do in a shop
is run our scanner PCI-z and others.
and find what chip is there.
or pop the wifi hatch and look first.
then load the correct driver what is SEEN THERE.

that is it, or call HP and get there help.

Dead PC, PC fans totally dead
that most times means PSU dead, or shorted modules inside PC> (im sure the power switch wire, to the mobo did not fall off) and the green LED on back of PSU is glowing green , (per manual HP ) means AC power side is good.

SR1200 series desktop made in fact in the Compaq plant in Texas.
2004 newest 2002, oldest.
if the coin cell is that old, it is bad.
none ever last that long; 14 years to 16year old batteries are no good. but a DMM check will not lie to you. 2.9v min, lower bad.

If both fans are dead , the PSU is bad.
in some cases, (no pun) we open the case
power off, (ac cord pulled)
push power on to discharge all caps in the PC,
normally one sees the CPU fan spin for 1 seconded and die. (but that is good PC yours is not)

we remove all power wires from the PSU from it
to HDD, to CD, drives, and to floppy 4 pin power
we do that because shorted devices, cause all PSU to shut down. even in 1/2 of second or LESS.
by design (ATX spec) this prevents fire, in the case/psu.
plug in PC, AC and push power, do fans run now, both must run , not just one fan.
power off again, ac line pulled, push power button again, to discharge things,
now

The once all those pig tails from PSU to THINGS are pulled , but not your MAIN 20 pin connector to mobo
we do what, we remove ram and test each stick 1 by one.
doing same tests, AC line pulled. remove RAM.
but 1 stick reseat it, and test for power on again.

if you have the original DDR memory sticks test them 1 by 1, each. ok>? they can short too. 94c62a99-50e0-4817-b127-42fc295914d0.jpg

old compaq? 2700 old old relic. 17 years old today (2001 made)
packed full of lint do dought.!!! and overheating.
windows what? xp to 10, what? please do not post.
F8 tell me, its w7? we hope
it came with windows 2000 or XP that is for sure.
what is it now? click control panel, then system
or tell me oldest date of files in C:/windows folder.
XP was born in 2001.

XP is virus magnet and all are infected with 700 exploites +++
a counting and not supported by MS.com
vasta has no self repair modes and is doomed for that 1 reason.
W7 has legs, is it w7? is it running IE11," if yes its W7
self shuts down fans and screen goes black,>?
no errors to screen
no text errors,
no beeping no blinking caps lock led codes.
steps that work on all old PCs like this.
  1. remove that 17 year old shorted huge batter and leave it out.
  2. now the RTC coin cell is bad, not one ever ran 17 year ever.
  3. next we clean all that lint out of all vents and RAD and fan or it will overheat for sure and all PCs shut off if overheated.,
  4. Next test HDD, if its dead no repairs are possible so we fix that next.
  5. then load linux best on this old PC, or w7 might work but costs $120 to try it. no free try like W10, at all,

clean all vents
all oF big RAD
and fan blades.

the battery is a 47wh, 6 cell,lithium ion battery
this is a battery pack made up of 6 separate batteries and what you have a indicates that one of those batteries is failing
you will need to get the new pack to fix the problem
go on line to Compaq web site spares to get a new one or search on e-bay-- battery for Compaq laptop make sure that you charger is charging before you order as well

its PC,
PC have many layers, of resets. (not counting lost BIOS passwords of any kind,, that adds to the list , )
layer 1, is BIOS reset, seen clearly in the BIOS pages.
says there, go back to factory defaults (just BIOS)
layer, 2: windows, but you never said which one? XP,Vista, W7/8/10?

To reset windows, there is no such thing, in windows at all.
ask MS that and get that answer, (then tells how, with media)
That means the actual windows, running has no reset.
(but one can spend a week or life time cleaning it....)

what does this RESET, is the HP recovery process.
AKA: reLOADING windows from scratch.

the next step for me is carbon dating your PC,
it's 12 years old now, 2006
but that is the CUSP year that HP started doing F11 KEY recoveries.

so that means i must read the manual to you
here goes.
bingo Page B12. see link at end, 1st google hit, btw.
power on and hammer F11, key verbatim.
this works and takes you back to 2006 with all data gone (yours)
and all added APPS gone, not HP apps there DAY1, those be OK
(reality 101)
now how can this fail, sure, easy as cherry pie it can
here is the list.
  • you changed out the HDD from 2006 to now,
  • you upgraded the PC OS not using HP disks or HP media kits. (boom)
  • your HDD is bad. run full disk tests now. most this old are bad
  • the HDD partition called HP recovery is damaged. super common on 12 year old PC.
  • the PC is sick, (huge list here , hardware!!)
