I have a Compaq Presario x1000 notebook. last week after using it, I shut
down as usual. But when i powered it on some time later.it simply refuses to
boot. The hard disk whirring sound comes to a stop within 2 seconds of
powering on. All the LEDs are on. The screen remains blank with no sign of
any activity. The fact is that the system halts before getting to the POST.
I connected it to an external monitor but there's still no display. meaning
that the LCD id ok. I have tried removing the battery ... and doing a power
drain, but it doesn't help.
i don't believe it's the HD I tried another HD but will not eave reach the
please help with any info
Re: What do you think it is?
Whenever I see this, it always has been that the computer never
completed going into Standby mode. Meaning the computer hung before
completing and it was really on the whole time.
Older laptops usually had a reset button. Although modern day computers,
you just push and hold the power button for 5 or more seconds. Thus now
it powered off whether it wanted to or not. Now try to boot up the
computer. What happens now?
