Re: [crt/lcd] Compaq Presario F767NR Notebook PC

A bad motherboard will exhibit the same symptoms you describe and can act as if it has powered and is booting normally. Fans kick on, etc. In some cases a bad motherboard can even exhibit a normal POST "all is well" beep.
A bad video card, often a part of the motherboard in cheaper laptops, can cause the same behavior as well.
Variable aplenty.

Make sure you know exactly what you are purchasing. You can buy paperweights far cheaper than $35.

Thanks Guys. I decided to pass on the deal. Just isn't worth the risk for me.
