Having problems with your Compaq Presario X1000 Notebook ?

BSoD, Garbled Screen, Boot Failure.

\015 Hi,\015\012\015\012Using (not mine, making this even worse) the laptop a month ago, I turned it on once, and it would load as far as the Windows XP bootup screen before flashing the BSoD for an instant and rebooting. It flashed the BSoD so quickly I couldn't even get an error number. After about a day or so, it started booting up properly again, until last night. The screen would flicker and become garbled, and the laptop froze. After turning it off and back on again, it would boot up until once again flickering and garbling and rebooting again. Now it'll boot and won't get as far as POST, showing a black screen, almost as if the backlight was burnt out.\015\012\015\012Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.\015\012\015\012-J\015

I bought a Compaq Presario V6444US notebook about a month ago. I used it about 5 times for less than 30 minutes each time. Now XP will not boot up, I get only a blank screen with the Compaq logo. It will not turn off when I press the power button or close it. I need help. Thanks!
Hold down keys 6, 7 and Y as it boots - press quite hard. Basically, the graphics card is running too hot, and has become unsettled in the motherboard. it resides underneath the above keys, so when you hold them down on bootup, it makes the connection better. I've been doing this for about 2 years, on a 5 year old x1000 I bought when I lived in Taiwan.
