I have a Compaq Presario V2000 I purchased from the Navy Exchange in February 2006. It has been working marvelously, even though I am less than gentle with it, taking it to my music performances, 4,000 miles of road trips and moves, etc. About 2 weeks ago I suddenly had the display fade rapidly to white on start-up. As far as I could tell, the computer was functioning fine otherwise, I just couldn't see anything. I could not shut it down normally because I could not see the Start menu and mouse cursor. Out of desperation, I unplugged it and dropped the battery out of the case, let it sit about ten minutes, then reassembled it and started it up again normally. It has done this twice more since then, and I can't figure out anything I could be doing wrong. I can't seem to find anything out from Compaq, either. Heard anything more about this?
