Hi

i have a hp compaq presario v4000 laptop, when i try to boot it up the screen stays black but when i apply pressure to bottom left on the palm rest it boots up, but then later freezes when i let go of pressure, i have tried using a external monitor but same outcome so im pretty sure its not the screen that is at fault.

Any help would be much appreciated

Thanks

Sounds like the hard drive is loose, that's the only component that's near the palmrest that would cause something like that. You'll have to take off the hard drive cover and make sure all screws are properly tightened.
