Hard reset it. Take out the battery and disconnect the AC. Hold the power button down for one minute. Reconnect the battery/ac and start the machine.

If that didn't work...

Could also be a connection issue in the ac socket. The presario is know to have week solders inside. Perhaps you should open it up and check this out.

There is also a ribbon that is hinged between the lcd and the bottm part of the laptop, this will cause the laptop's lcd to have a mind of it's own. I haven't heard of Compaqs with this problem, but I've seen it a lot in Inspirons.

Check all your power connections leading up to the pc connection
