I had this problem with an old laptop of mine. I had to send it back to get it replaced. It seemed that it was a problem with the graphics onboard.

Before we get to that let us do a quick run through of what you can do:

1) Press and hold the POWER button.
2) Call COMPAQ's technical support.

When you boot up again and there is still errors, your laptop is probably fried. You will need to call COMPAQ and go through their warranty service. My ex-roommate had a COMPAQ, and it caused him nothing but troubles. He had to RMA it twice. For future reference, avoid COMPAQ and HP laptops.

Well, it's not mine, it's a loaner/renter from my little bro's school.

The intersting thing about the entire sitution was the fact that the damn thing wouldn't turn off.
Tried everything i could think of.....power button ctrl alt delete like 15 times, etc....and i didn't ahve the tool to actually get to the battery to un plug it....

I ifgure he'll just take it back and get a new one and let their techs have at it.

If it's booting up, your obviously turning it on.
