I have the same problem as Brad but I can't find a solution for it. I also have a concave screen now on my Compaq FS740 also after browsing the internet but without downloading anything in particular. Please help if you know. Thank you.

Re: Concave screen problem also
OK All these Compaq's have a Power Supply problem, or a Horizontal Voltage problem.. meaning they are on the way out. The SMPSU's in these units often fail along with the Horizontal Drive Circuitry. I think it is time for a new one? Repair of such a unint would barely be "Ecconomical" IMHO.

Does the machine have regular keys (that remove) or a "blister switch" type key pad? Have you tried to use compressed air to remove any obstruction? OR try to pry the key, very gently, up? A LITTLE silicon spray? You may have to remove the keyboard. If you use the Tray Notification Area Sound Icon to increase volume what happens?
OK your monitor is failing in the Horizontal circuitry.... OR the PSU is failing to supply the correct Voltages. Either way it is probably going to fail completely soon. With monitors so cheap now, here in NZ they are about NZ$20.00 - $50.00, repair isn't adviseable to do so, it would make more sense to put the Repair monies into a NEW screen... maybe time for an LCD?
