Having problems with your Compaq Presario X1000 Notebook ?

Screen goes black repeatedly

\015 I have a Compaq Persario X1000, and I use a second external monitor with it. Since yesterday the laptop screen will go black as if its in standby mode, however it wont come on simply by clicking a button. The only way to get my screen back on is to hit the small black button that is suppressed when the screen is shut. The screen will only come back on for 5-20seconds. Please help!\015

Answers :

It appears the lid switch is sticking internally.
\015\012Try this: 1 drop of WD40 on the edges of the plunger button itself. If that doesn't work. You may need to replace the lid switch itself. Not much of a technical challenge, but a good tech should be able to do it in an hour. Common switch design from many laptops.

\015\012If possible; ask them not to unseat the Video Card if they don't have to, this model is prone to poor contacts on the video card, then the unit may never come on again, or have lines in the display. (same as HP zt3000)

\015\012If you have poor contact, you will need some contact lubricant/enhancer (@Radio Shack).
