Great video you provided Vixen. Boy did anybody see how much Thermal Grease he put on that new CPU!!
Way too much in my humble opinion. What do you folks think?

I'll have to take your word for it as I haven't watched the video from start to finish.

Still, they say a picture is worth a thousand words.

It's about a year and a half old, I phoned hp but they wanted to charge me just for there support and I think that's a joke, tell me what's wrong with so I know if it worth sending it in or repair but charging your for them telling you what's wrong with it is a joke, I'm out of warranty by 6 months

I might just replace the CPU my self

I'm sure the Sales of Goods act provides Consumers with some level of protection in regard to faulty electronic goods.

Edit - Just found this.

See if replacing the AC adaptor might help. I had one go bad on my Compaq laptop.

If that doesn't help the problem, you can always return it.

I've has this identical issue with a Compaq Presario cq56-115dx black screen at power on,everything else seems to power up, caps light blinks showing what it could be that's not working as noted above on hp's support link however this model of laptop/notebook will not make a beeping sound, never did when the monitor would power up correctly. I installed ssd new mobo still black screen replaced ram,checked connection ac/dc you name it still black screen no Compaq logo nada. I contacted hp no reply. HP no warranty and no assistance policy. I'm think its lg LCD/monitor not sure if customer overheated unit, no spills where found inside reply please thanks ahead guys, Rpd
