Trying to reformat Compaq Presario CQ50

Did you create a set of Recovery discs for this machine, before you wiped out Vista and installed Windows 7? There is a utility to do this and it relies on the original windows to work. When you formatted Vista, you erased the Recovery links from the windows partition, that allows the recovery to take place. The Recovery has to 'see' the original OS to confirm it is on the correct machine. It is known as a 'fingerprint' and is checked by the BIOS to make sure it is not being Pirated. If you have the key on the bottom, you may be able to download a new copy of Vista just for Compaq machines, and it will legally activate.

Black display after start up notebook HP Compaq Presario

This may be the motherboard has failed, it happens more than most people think. There is no way to check it, but if you are advanced enough you can buy one and replace it, and not have to worry about reinstalling your operating system. Just a possibility, but that is what it sounds like to me.

There is nothing wrong with the fan. Please go to a computer technician and check the coolant inside which require to maintain the temperature. Over the period it gets evaporated/dried up. Also make sure the air vents are clean and th computer is used in a place where there is sufficient air flow.

Will not boot up i tried to repair with bios but still will not boot

Computer does not boot up The problem maybe the RAM, it is faulty or just needs reseating to make proper electrical contact. Reseat the RAM and then boot up your laptop. If it still does not boot up then remove the RAM module/s and take them to your friendly computer repair shop and get them to test the RAM for you. Just like you sometimes need a mechanic to repair your car, sometimes you do need a technician to diagnose and identify the fault or faults on your computer. Not only does a good service technican have the experience to deal with this type of problem, they also have the equipment that allows them to look at things the average computer user can't see, and he has a collection of replacement parts that can be used to quickly test individual components on your computer.

Compaq Presario CQ50-110US 15-inch Laptop dropped will boot but no video

Your laptop may have a combination of problems. Since the laptop was dropped, it is possible that your may a motherboard that no longer outputs video through the video controller, or the screen may have been damaged internally. Try hooking up an external monitor through the vga output of your laptop, usually located on the side or back of the laptop. If the external monitor works, then most likely it is your screen that's bad, if the external monitor doesn't works, then most likely it is your motherboard that's bad.Let me know if this helps.
