COmpaq V6000 Sometimes stays on black screen on boot up

This is a two laptop question. Both are indentical Compaq V6000 laptops, Windows Xp.


Laptop 1: (The main laptop) Started about a week ago that he screen would remain black when left alone for an hour. Pressed the power button and when it came on, it flashed on for a second then shut off. Did the same thing over and over. Finally took out the battery and pressed the power button then charged it. Eventually, it went on. Did the same thing this mornining. Reason for it?


Laptop two: About a year ago this laptop would only stay on a balck screen when powered on, could not see anything, then it would restart itself 30 seconds later and continue to stay on a black screen, only to in a loop restart itself. Then suddenly, it went out normally (Continued using it for moths though had to reset it to original setings when here and there it would restart itself loading through (But I was able to see the images then obviously). Now it's back to before, completely black screen and restarting itself. How can I fix this without sending it in?
