I have a Compaq Presario 1700 laptop that was given to me when I turn it on it begins to load up then shuts off after appx 30 seconds. The moniter doesn't come on at all, but you can hear the hard drive working until it shuts off again. What could the problem be? Would it be worth it to repair?

i have the exact same problem. try connecting the laptop to an external VGA screen. if it works, then the problem is most likely a loose cable (connector). It turns out that the connector (which connects the motherboard or gfx card to the LCD screen) on my laptop is torn and cut. see if u have the same problem. this link might help u check out ur problem:
