Im guessing you meant black screen totally never text there.
does the monitor work on other PC as it must?? simple no?
if yes, it is good and the unstated PC is bad.
if not, the monitor is bad, if this old monitor is very old
2 things fail.
1: CCFL lamps inside all died long ago. 2010 or older.
2: the screen saver inside IT is turned on, turn that off.
push the menu button on the LCD monitor.
then in the OSD turn off sleep TIMER clock..

lets say unstated PC is dead.
1: is the fans dead,? if desktop 2 fans must be good, spin and blow air and not be packed up in lint as most old PC are.
heard ,seen to turn, and felt to blow.(air flow must happen)
2: does the DVD tray eject.

are you asking for all keys to glow in the dark
or asking how to type blindly in the dark, be so nice of you to tell why you need this feature, no?
or only the normal keys,
caps lock.
Num lock.
name a key or some.
the above manual shows no such thing
why do you expect this.?
others have it and you dont and therefore want it?
others have differnent PCs.
others have disktop and then bought $100 keyboard that does that from CORSAIR. like mine ,now.

ask them ,ask instrgram we are fixya not them

ok we finally get the model
"Cq61 420us" made 2009, not too old.
I cant see your screen to be sure where it is locked. this PC has UEFI technology
and as such and turned on , only HP can unlock this device.


the exact message seen is not stated
"user lock codes" bios or windows locked?
do you see the windows login screen at all?
now we go to HP, they own COmpaq.100%
and ask

HP has a support page

https://support.hp.com/us-en/product/compaq-presario-cq61-400-notebook-pc-series/4074240/model/4121168/manuals


ask HP.com how to reset it.
there is a way, but fixya is NOT HP.Com
sorry, we are not HP.

ask here

https://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/forums/searchpage/tab/message?q=Cq61+420us&collapse_discussion=true



see others asking there?
sure.

did you do the HP long reset first?
battery large out
then line cord off
push power on for 30 seconds
release.
not use just AC power , as the 9 year old battery will be bad, and worse shorted.
leave the huge battery out for now. run on AC>
then tell the helper all words on the screen
all logos. all graphics seen there,
even if the w7 log on screen shows.
then we can proceed.

NO PC stated.
W7-32 or 64bit? is that PC running 64bit OS?
if yes,do you expect to use 2000 Fortran to load and even work under that? 18 years old disks? why?
why not buy new compiler for modern PC's?
the only hope, is to run Setup.exe
in COMPAT mode.
right click the EXE. on CD. (properties)
pick cOmpat tab
run this program in compat mode.. check the box.
the pick what? XP ?
OMG, windows 2000? (that is what this was made for in 2000 year, windows 2000.

the relic instructions still pollute the internet
per here. and is a very buggy program.

https://www.cs-software.com/software/fortran/compaq/cvf_relnotes.html

recap.
try the CD on other PC,? if that fails, CD is bad.?
if that works maybe your CD in the first PC the CD drive is bad.?
or that PC w7 is infected.
or that PC is running 64bit and some 32bit programs do flat fail to run on 64bit PCs, for many reasons,
and for sure compilers that can not recognize that
modern processor you have, 18 years newer.

I bet its upgrade time, a new compiler.

restat?
stacked?
i have no idea these words? elaborate please .
tell what you do right and it does, wrong (a story)

my wild guess is the touch pad is failing
and no usb mouse attached,(hand held mouse)
that?
what OS is this , XP?

The mouse pad can be bad.
so can the mouse pad driver be corrupted , missing or wrong one installed.

start by telling the helper what OS,
click the (CP) control panel, click system'
the OS you run is presented to you there, in words.
windows what.
then CP (again, then click device manager)
under "Mice and other pointing devices."
see the mouse pad there, the driver there must not be
missing
or red or yellow marks ore UNKNOWN.

there are more tests and actions, but I stop here,
or get it repaired in a PC repair shop. (captain obvious sorry)

Compaq Computers... | Answered on Apr 20, 2018


The problem's with the video card or the vga cord; the monitor is just reacting to no signal from the graphics card. Check that the pins aren't bent. If they are, you can possibly straighten them once. The second time, they may snap off.

Since the KB just flashes once, it could be the power supply, or the motherboard. If the motherboard has any caps that are swollen on top or leaking, you might need a new motherboard.

when does this error happen
1: boot black screens before the windows login screen.?
2: after boot and login, and disktop shows.?
3: does it only happen running apps. or running IE11.
4: only doing what? fill in the blank here _______?


but this PC is 10 years old
and needs a new RTC coin cell.
and you need to run HDD tests, if it dont boot.

terry's link above is correct one to real HP.
and very good.
but COMPAQ facts are hard to find today.
this old.

is this a BIOS password screen , showing system disabled, if yes that is only cured by direct help from HP ,they have a magic back door password
for all old PC by them (HP/compaq)
next time show a photo of errors, 10x more easy.

NO PC stated ,wow now that is hard , no? 1984 to 2018 PCs (1000s of types made !)
compaq to 2013 ends.
NO OS stated, windows, yes?, what windows, XP, vista ,what?

seems to me, the BIOS barfs on your Processor.
my guess is you changed mother boards, and used the wrong processor.? (or the reverse)
learn that the BIOS must be able to recognize the processor in the POST process.
(for sure lots of causes other)
does it do that (laptop) with the main battery the huge heavy battery , that is now shorted and dead.?
you post and not even say desk or laptop. wow.
is it a Proliant Server? or Z600 with 2 non matching Xenon processors, gee, must I guess it all?>
why not just post your service tag data.
and say what OS is running, even windows servers.


the HP manuals on your PC clearly state what processor on that exact model and P/N on the service tag.
clear as day.
as will the hp parts surfer.
varies by country too.
see this, if you answer all the questions there, bingo what yours had and what processor options are supported.
on newer PC HP 10 years or less the BIOS update page also lists added processors under"details" there you go.

had this laptop myself, you need to remove all the drivers for the wifi and delete the files and folders.. download the driver from HP, reboot the laptop and it should install the windows driver. reboot again and then install the HP driver, when you have done this and its working make sure windows cannot update drivers ever again as windows installs wrong drivers. windows 10 is prone to installing the updated drivers that are not compatible with this model. like mouse pad. max version is 18. windows puts 19 on and it makes over driver incompatible.

yet another old IPAQ, PDA.
why not ask HP
warning most have not seen one in 10 years, and forgot.

why own any legacy device like this, retired.
why not upgrade.?
nobody uses this thing> parts are not found. support zero.
value is like $1 at a garage sale.

did you ask the maker of micromedex if they even support this app
or if it even works in that mode, that be like first.

If still under warranty suggest have it repaired.
Most computers out of warranty also have out of date software and are not worth spending funds on.
Suggest upgrade to a new machine.

Compaq... | Answered on Mar 03, 2018


no PC stated, (model)?
no OS stated, windows what.?

that means the drivers are wrong for this PC and its unstated OS.
you do know compaqs go back to 2001
and hp portables back to 1984,
we can not guess PC models, and they are not all the same.
or means corrupted OS, or virus infected or worse.

the word compaq means little and the name ended in 2013

Compaq Computers... | Answered on Feb 28, 2018


a very very old Compaq.
right clicking the trackpad not the external usb mouse ????
you broke the cable to the track pad. switch set.
working on any laptop takes skills, to not do more damage
that you fix, even a pro makes this error. all do.
the cables are FRAIL, so are the sockets for them frail and break so very easy.
use a real USB mouse.
or go back inside and fix your damage.
its just a switch set and cables.
the pad part has its own electronics and its own cable and drivers.

if lucky only putting cable back fixes it.
do you know how to lock and unlock laptop ribbon connector locks and not damage them.
this is a first things first set of skills.
ask. (there are 3 kinds, what you have id have to look)
each kind uses different skills to work them. and not wreck them.

thanks but............. and is and Obsolete PC. at HP and MS.
sr1902uk (England?)
  1. what OS? drivers match a OS, XP?
  2. sure some makers of mobo offer drivers that HP ended. sure.
  3. so does the unstated NIC chip maker offer drivers but not for all OS in most cases.
  4. The best way to work on old PC is run the PCI scanner(ask)
  5. identify the chip maker and model (ven=x dev=z)
  6. then we can get any driver, for any OS if the chip maker has one, and many dont. for newer OS. (and ther reverse)
  7. Finding drivers for old PC is not easy, (for me sure) but for most, it's very hard and the risk of getting virus high.!!
  8. ask how to do it, using the scanner , lacking HP support.

OMG a 16 year old desktop gee, why own this?
came with windows 2000, then 2001 XP. both Dead OS. bad news that. why post at all lacking what OS your run of the many./
your ATT guy probably never seen anything this old
for sure 1st tier helpers.... "a look by him and OMG what is that thing)

what adapter, of the many?
wifi, 3/5G wireless, or Ethernet wired.
it came new with zero wireless anything.
wired only and slow. 100GB only.

we cant guess network unless a tiny hint added like wifi or?
looks like it came new with a relic NIC eithernet port slow.
there, and modern OS do not run now on that chip
im reading your relic service manual now for you.

the RJ45 on the rear , is Ethernet (wired)
you connect a CAT5/6 cable to that and to your router.
and it just works, that is if the Intel driver is loaded.
