Having problems with your HP Compaq Presario C769US Notebook ?

Compaq presario laptop goes completely black (no start, nothing) after password is entered on welcome screen. I turn the unit and enter my p-word. It says "welcome" with the spinning circle for a rather long period of time and then goes directly to an all black screen. Re-booting gets the same result. Ctrl/alt/del does nothing, nor does esc. It was working fine last night.

Are you able to go safe mode? Reboot and when the logo appears, press f8 and select safe mode. If you are able to, you might want to run a antispyware or antivirus software.
