Did you create a set of Recovery discs for this machine, before you wiped out Vista and installed Windows 7? There is a utility to do this and it relies on the original windows to work. When you formatted Vista, you erased the Recovery links from the windows partition, that allows the recovery to take place. The Recovery has to 'see' the original OS to confirm it is on the correct machine. It is known as a 'fingerprint' and is checked by the BIOS to make sure it is not being Pirated. If you have the key on the bottom, you may be able to download a new copy of Vista just for Compaq machines, and it will legally activate.

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.
