I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

My Compaq CQ62-209WM was working great until a couple of weks ago.  When I turned it on the screen stayed black, the caps lock light blinks once every 5 seconds, and the wifi light stays orange.  Read on this forum of others with similar problems.I tried a hard reset and it worked the first time, long enough for me to back up the important stuff on my hard drive, but did not work the second time (or any time I have tried it since then).One blink indicates CPU failure so I ordered a new CPU and thermal material, dismanteled the unit and replaced the CPU and thermal material this evening. Still have black screen and blinking lights - still one blink every 5 seconds. Tried hard reset, no change.Any suggestions? Not able to replace computer at this time - willing to try almost anything.Thanks in advance.

A:Compaq CQ62-209WM, black screen and caps lock blinking

Hi @micwtx ,  Thank you for visiting the HP Support Forums and Welcome. I have looked into your issue about your Compaq Presario CQ62-209WM Notebook and issues with the flashing lights and not starting correctly. Here is a link to computer does not start. It has the LED blinking codes and suggests that it could be your System Board. Have you tried to reseat the memory and HDD? (it is in the document) Please note remove any and all USB devices. Disconnect all non-essential devices, as these could cause some issues. Plug the power adapter directly into a functioning wall outlet. Do not plug it into a power strip, surge protector, or secondary power source as this could cause and issue.Hope this helps you. Thanks.

Changing out a DC socket

I have a question regarding this computer. My friend bought this a while ago at Walmart for $298. Now I just finished fixing on problem with it, then when i plugged it in the laptop doesn't charge. I went no where near the socket when I worked on it but it is extremely loose. The charger works fine, and the battery also works perfectly. it has to be the socket being so loose. I looked up the part and it is much different from other sockets I have seen. Has anyone saw this kind of socket, and how do i replace it? It is Hp part number 486637-001 on their site. Thanks for any info!

Hi, i bought a 6150b from a company auction. Everything worked perfect for the longest time. Then last week i went to go turn it on, and all it does is run the CPU fan for a couple seconds, flash the AC LED about 7 - 8 times, and while thats flashing the power and hard drive LED’s stay solidly lit. Then it completely turns off. This all lasts about 3 seconds at the most. That’s what happens when on battery power.

When on AC power, the same thing happens, except it continues doing the cycle over and over again until I unplug it.

I think it might have something to do with the LCD monitor, since it does not even show a slight flicker at all. No color change like it would from when turned off to a black back lit screen when turning on….simply nothing.

I opened her up (no warranty anyways) and checked all the connections for the keyboard, monitor, DVD drive etc....also reseated them as well, with no luck.

Pulled the both RAM modules and reseated them as well, nothing.

Pulled the battery as well, no change. Still cycles the same over and over again while on AC

There are no audible errors codes (real nice HP...), and im lost at this point.

Any and all suggestions are greatly appreciated.

A:Compaq Presario 6150b wont boot - no BIOS screen - powers on and off repeatedly

I think instead of just pulling and replacing the CMOS battery you might purchase a new one and install it. Proceed from there. If you get a screen and it's still has a problem try a new PSU. Jazz

Hey guys, need some help.  I thought I would help out a friend with his laptop but it is to much for me.  Mostly because he is not sure if there are any Recovery discs, and, there seems to be something wrong with the Create Recovery Set function, along with the Recover from Recovery Partition function.
I saw and researched these Addwares/malware or whatever they are:
PC Tech Hotline
Reg Pro Cleaner version 2.0
Search Protect
Spyware Clear
Cartwheel Shopping 
After as much research as possible I downloaded Emsisoft portable Malware Remover.  Then as the tutorials suggested I removed as much of the Addware as possible in Add-Remove programs, including:
Spyware Clear
Reg Clean Pro
avast free av: because it did not work.
Chrome browser: because it did not work either.
I then ran Emsisoft and quarantined all that it found.  There was one that was Medium Risk and one that was of High Risk.  I copied the list if you need it.  Then tried to run the pc and do some M.S. Updates but ran into an issue with Windows Update Registry issues.
Error: 80004002
and or 0x80004002
Ran the Trouble Shooter and that produced this Error: 0x8007005(2015-07-14-T-09_48_55P)Not fixed.
I then went back and Unquarantined anything that had the HKEY Prefix, that said "Not a threat" or something to that extent and tried to proceed with updates.  It just kept Checking for Updates and never stopped.

Your logs show obvious signs of having cracked software on your system. This is the main reason your computer is infected. Visiting cracksites/warezsites - and other questionable/illegal sites is always a risk.Even a single click on the site can drop multiple forms of very serious malware, many of which disable your onboard protection, and System Restore.If you install the cracked software, you are running executable files from these dubious, unknown sources. You are in effect giving these sources access to information on your hard disk, and potential control over the operation of your computer.Additionally, cracked programs are illegal. Referring to the Forum Rules which you should have read at the time of Registering at this forum, this forum does not support illegal activity. As such, be advised that any request for assistance in removing malware may go unanswered, or may be discontinued, if the cracked (illegal) software is still present on the machineHaving said that we can help you clean your machine this time BUT this would be a ONCE ONLY offer on the understanding that all cracks are removed. This would apply not only here but at many other Malware Support forums if you were to appear again with cracks onboard, as many of us analysts work at multiple support sites.

Upon starting my laptop, I get a message that the system has detected the storage capacity of the primary internal battery is very low and needs to be replaced. No important programs load and the desktop loads normal brightness until I move the cursor and the brightness fades to very low. I have to admit that yesterday, I accidently spilled about 3 tablespoons of lemonade onto the lower right hand side of the keyboard. Everything seemed fine until about an hour later, when the pages of any internet site seemed to scroll down by themselves and I couldn't control with the "page up button"......kept scrolling down. Then when I went to my Vanguard account screen and tried to type in my user name, with the last 3 digits of 627, what kept appearing was 6267. everytime I tried.
Then on an MSNBC site, I was watching a replay of one of their programs and their video program has it's own volume button.
Everytime I tried to raise the volume, it went down on it's own. It wasn't until this morning that when I turned on the lap top, most of the task bar was empty and the screen would fade. I took the back panels off to look for that "internal battery" but couldnt see it.
Research on the internet keeps directing me to the large detachable battery on the back but this battery has proven to be good.
If I take that battery out and just try using only the power cord, I still get the same bad results mentioned above.

This laptop was recently given to a friend of mine. She was told that it would just keep freezing up or shutting off. She brought it to me to check for her because if wouldn't boot. I used a boot disk and got it booted and it seemed ok. Gave it back and she had it a wk and brought it back with problem of freezing up and then no boot. I just put HWmonitor on it and the temps are running from 62-75 C. She said it was constantly doing windows updates and the last one it wouldn't re-boot. I have a plastic think I use with my laptop that has 3 small fans on it and you put it under the laptop. I have had it on over an hour and it has gone up from 70-75 for a high. I finally got it to come up with using Chk Dsk and it did several repairs.That's all I have done with it so far. Does anyone have any suggestions? She didn't have anything with fans under it, but she had it up on a broiler pan off the table.

I'm helping a friend clean up her computer, from malware, viruses, to performance. I've done full scans with AVG and Malware Bytes, while also eliminating many unnecessary programs. The computer has improved 100% but I'm still struggling with single tasks such as opening Google Chrome, or Disk Defrag, for it takes 1-2 min. for them to open. Last night I couldn't even open Disk Defrag... Any suggestions? I could really use a bit of help. Also, there is only 2gb of RAM so it could very well be why everything is delayed...
My personal computer runs two 4GB ram sticks so Its not exactly something I should even compare it with.

I'd advise you to just have her save her personal files on a flash drive, and reinstall the operating system from scratch. You don't know how many files have been corrupted, it might take just as long to fix them as it is to do a total reinstall.

I have a HP Compaq 6820S that all of a sudden has stopped working   It had been on unattended for a few hours, and when I came back to it it had frozen with a black screen (I had to hold the power button to turn it off).  Now, when I power it up, the fan kicks in, the caps lock LED flashes on then off, the wireless and power button LEDs stay lit, and the DVD drive continously clicks - but nothing else (screen remains black /off, no beeps, no BIOS/ POST screen). I've tried with hard disk and/or memory removed, and with/without the battery inserted - with the same result as above each time.   EDIT: have also left the battery out for 24 hours too.  When on nothing happens (caps lock/num lock keys don't light up when pressed, wireless LED doesn't go off when pressed).  I've also tried exporting to an external display, again with no luck.  I suspect the motherboard is dead, and it may be new laptop time, but wanted to check here in advance in case anyone has any other suggestions.  Can anyone suggest anything?

So my laptop's screen is black. I'm using my tv right now with it, it works fine hooked up to a TV. I've tried everything I know of. When the laptop first starts up, It flashes the red compaq screen, then goes black. Flashes the user login screen, then goes black 2 sec later. When I do the fn+f4, the screen flashes back on, everything looks cool, then 5 seconds later it goes black again. It's not just the light, it goes completely off. (Just on the laptop, external monitor works) I've tried restoring back to factory settings, recovery, and I'm not getting anywhere! I've even tried that black screen fix by Prevx. Oh and I also tried turning the laptop off, holding the power button, etc. It has windows 7. CQ61 I think is the model.

The funny thing is that I could run it on save mode without powering off (that's when i did the back-up) but now can't get to run anything, just powers off after 5 sec

Any suggestions?

It looks like you may have Bad Ram: Compaq BIOS Beep Codes - BIOS Central.
Computer Does Not Start and Emits an LED or Beep Code Compaq Presario SR5510F Desktop PC - HP Customer Care (United States - English) Or it could be the Video adapter on the motherboard. Try removing one stick of RAM and get to the Bios. You can also download the ISO image for Memtest in my signature burn the image to CD with IMGBurn also in my signature or USB and boot off of the disc and run the tests on each stick of RAM separately.

I was working on a customer's laptop, a Compaq CQ60, that refused to boot into windows and System Recovery disabled all recovery options except for Command Prompt.

On a hunch, after pressing Escape during BIOS boot, I selected HDD Test. The test ran and failed with "Replace Hard Drive." OK.. the laptop sat there for a few minutes and never did anything else, so I tried to get out of that screen. Nothing responded, so I just held the Power button to turn the computer off.

When I pressed Power again to turn the computer back on, the Power and Wireless LEDs comes on, the CD drive is accessed and then the HDD LED lights up for a second and goes out. The screen never comes up nor do the backlights.

I have tried hooking up an external monitor, but that never shows anything either.

I have tried taking the memory out, cleaning the contacts, putting them back in, swapping the modules around, booting with one or the other.... No effect.

I pulled the battery and the CMOS battery, unplugged AC and let it sit for a good half hour. I held the Power button for thirty seconds. Plugged the CMOS battery back in then the AC. Turned it on and still no go.

I cannot figure out WHAT could have happened!? Any other ideas? Thanks...

After doing research it turns out that my notebook PC has some kind of "hard hang" issue in which my laptop becomes unresponsive. 7/24/13

So apparently the only time my notebook DOESN'T freeze is when my laptop gets hot, but when my laptop isn't getting warm that's when it starts to become unresponsive/crash. 7/31/13

I've owned a Compaq Pressario CQ62-225NR notebook for almost 3 years now and I've haven't had any problems with the laptop until now. While I was on vacation in Rhode Island the laptop would freeze/crash about 5-20 minuets in use and I immediately thought it was bad memory. When the laptop does crash/freeze I'm not able to move the mouse cursor nor does the lights on the caps lock,num lock, or scroll lock respond when I press their key. When I got back from Rhode Island I opened up the laptop's RAM slot, took out the memory, re-seated the memory, and started up my laptop. Same thing happened, so this time I tried to re-arrange the memory and even use other memory from my other laptops and still kept on crashing. I took the original RAM for the laptop, put it back in, and ran a memory diagnostics.

After finishing the memory diagnostics it showed that there was nothing wrong with the Laptop memory whatsoever. I then re-booted my laptop and used some of the HP diagnostics that you can use when you hit esc during boot-up and ran a full diagnostic on the laptop.

Does it always freeze/crash at the same approximate time? I mean like..... after running 5 minutes say? Or is it completely random? I'm "looking" at the graphics card myself. I'm sure its probably integrated in your machine which is not good news. I may be wrong though!

Welcome to the forums by the way!

A:My Compaq Presario 2500 wont go pass the compaq screen

Hello lilevee22,

Before the problem started was anything added to or installed on the system?

Try booting to Last Known Good or Safe Mode.

Restart the computer during the boot process repeatedly tap "F8" you should get

the Advanced Options.

Let us know if able to get the system to boot with either option.

A:Compaq Presario SR1810NX Not Getting Past Compaq Logo Screen

Try a power drain.
1. Unplug power cord
2. Hold power button in for 60 seconds or more then let go
3. Plug in power cord
4. turn on the power and try to boot to setup (BIOS)

If it enters the BIOS then you should be able to just press F5 to reset to defaults and then F10 to save and exit. The PC should work now.

However, if after the power drain you still can not get in the BIOS than there is a MAJOR problem which would require some type of repair.

When I power on my Compaq Presario, the screen remains black, the key next to the power button is orange, the Caps Lock key is blinking and a light blinks above the "home, end, num lock keys", in the upper portion of the keyboard. I have tried taking out the battery, unplugging the power and holding the power button for 60 seconds, before trying it again, and I am not getting anything...HELP!!

Try re-seating the Ram. If that doesn't help remove the Cmos battery for a few minutes then put it back, it looks like a silver coin and should be visible near the ram.
