Black display after start up notebook HP Compaq Presario
This may be the motherboard has failed, it happens more than most people think. There is no way to check it, but if you are advanced enough you can buy one and replace it, and not have to worry about reinstalling your operating system. Just a possibility, but that is what it sounds like to me.

Don't remember windows vista password
Lost Windows password:
- Login as Administrator. Try with no password (load safe mode if you don't see Administrator). Press F8 during boot to access Safe Mode. XP only.
- Login as other user (if other user is available) and manage users. Must be an administrator.
- Reformat computer.
- Use 3rd party software to remove password. Like http://www.top-password.com/reset-windows-password.html
- Free software option would be Hirens Boot CD. This one is command prompt only. http://www.hirensbootcd.org/ Must follow instructions exactly.

Plugged in not chatging
Need to test if power adapter is providing power - easy to do with multimeter. If no power, replace power adapter. Replacements found easily online and not very expensive.
IF power adapter is working and putting out power, either you have a damaged power jack in the laptop, or a worn out battery that will not accept a charge. Power jack replacement is best left to experienced technicians, battery replacement is simple and replacement readily available online.
