Having problems with your Compaq PC Laptops ?

Computer wont start, screen is black, and loud beeping


Answers :

Unseat and reseat the memory one stick at a time in each slot one at a time and turn on the laptop after you unseat and reseat each memory stick.

If you still get the beeps, take out the hard drive and dvd drive just to be sure the laptop isn't getting shorted out by those devices.

If you still don't get video then that means the motherboard is bad and would need to be replaced.
