You need to replace the chipset - it has been overheated. I've had the same problem - after installing WinXP with wrong drivers for chipset. As I heard - all of this series of Compaq have a major problem - chipset overheating! Good Luck!!!

Power up the external monitor first and then boot up the laptop, the video info will automatically divert to the external monitor.
If you do not see a Windows image on the external monitor then it is definitely a motherboard issue, because the video card is built in on the motherboard.
The Video card uses shared RAM (part of the RAM module/s ), try re-seating the RAM modules, also test the RAM modules.
You can test the hard drive by removing the hard drive and connecting it to an USB hard drive adapter, then connect the adapter into a working computer's USB port. If the hard drive is OK, this computer will see it as an external storage device and you can open the various folders and files on the hard drive.

My compute will not turn on


The laptop might be overheating, sometimes when the laptop cant get any ventilation it shuts down and will not properly power up till the temperature issues are delt with.
But you usually get at least a few seconds of power before it shuts down again, so it may not be that, sounds a bit more like the CPU is dead and will need replaced.

Compaq presario CQ50 106CA. When powered on the power light and wireless light illuminates. The DVD sounds like it's initialising and fan runs, but screen blank. Ihave tried all basic fault finding...


Have you tried turning it on and selecting the function key combination for the screen? For example some screens use FN+F7, hold down the Function key and F7 to cycle between presentation modes.
