Compaq V6310US Laptop Won't Boot / Power Cycles Off and On

by orgod - 4/26/08 8:49 AM

Yesterday my laptop was put into hibernation and later wouldn't awaken. It's set to awaken when the lid is opened, but it did not. I powered it off, then restarted it. This HAS happened before, but in the past the system restarted fine.

Now, after the power is turned on, the lights on the console all come on, the cooling fan starts immediately, the CD/DVD drive spins briefly, the system sits idle for a moment, then it turns the power off, then on again, and goes through the whole cycle again. It will do this perhaps 8-10 times before shutting off completely.

During this whole process, the LCD NEVER TURNS ON. There are no lights or symbols on the screen, there are no audible beeps or other noises.

I cannot access the BIOS or enter Safe Mode. There is NOTHING on the screen. I've reseated the HDD. I've tried restarting the system using each of the two memory sticks alone and in opposing slots and it makes no difference.

Contacted Compaq Help and was told my system warranty ended 5 days ago.

ANY IDEAS? happy

Thanks.
