my HP COMPAQ Laptop has issue of not displaying anything on the screen but the laptop is turned on so what I did, I open the laptop and look for the video card on the board and then i use a hair blower to blow the video card (advised from an old friend) and then I put it back in, then i turned on and it works. Few days later the problem of not displaying on the screen comes back and i did the same thing and it still resolve the problem. so I did this over and over everytime i had this issue...

Hi ironhide,

It looks like there is a hardware issue or a power related problem. Please make sure all the cooling fans are clean from dust. Disconnect the battery and the power cable. Hold the power button for 20 seconds and then reconnect the power cable. Turn on the PC. Is there any change? If not, there may be a power port or a motherboard issue and I would recommend you to consult with a technician.

Hope this helps

Unfortunately I cannot think of some quick repairing you could do at home. The problem is that you can never be 100% certain if the failing component is the motherboard and if it is, it is hard to tell which part of it you should check. You may find some online tutorials on how to fix your motherboard yourself but have in mind that this way you may damage it even further. My advice is to contact someone experienced and with the necessary tools to handle the issue.

Unfortunately that OS change is not supported. If you want, you may try changing it, but you should know that the process may harm your PC and make it unusable. Loading another OS may require a BIOS change and some new hardware, because with the BIOS change the current keyboard and mouse may not work. If you find some tutorial online and you manage to install Windows successfully you may have trouble with the drivers because there are no official drivers. This may cause huge performance issues.
In general, I do not recommend you changing the OS unless it is absolutely necessary.
