I am working on a Compaq Presario 1800 series Laptop.

If you start it from a cold boot, the computer boots up fine.
If you shut down or do a restart you get no video.

You can hear the HDD and fans running but there is no video.
You can put it into standbmode and it will come back up.

ANy ideas would be greatly appreciated

Thanks in advance!!
