I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

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.

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.

ok I hace a compaq that is all messed up. lets see one day the monitor would not work after a storm. Bought another, For a while the screen would be blue but change back to normal. The pc also would have a hard time starting up after it was in idle. We would do a hard start and for a while that worked. Now when I try to start it it turns on but the monitor says no vga/dvi input. There is also none of the preverable beeps that are supposed to be there so in short (well long)the motherboard is fried? So do I use it as a planter in the yard or is there a way to get it up and running. It runs on XP media center it has a micro ATX form factor motherboard it is also an AMD 64 Anthlon. ram is 256 mb 1Rx16 pc 4200 ddr2 533 mhz. With all that said can I just replace the motherboard and reinstall the reinstallation disks and be up and running? ( if it could only be so easy) What about the cpu. i know many questions here thanks for patients. Please help me. Tina
 

A:compaq presario

does your system have agp or pciex (or even pci) slot free? Is the graphics on board? It sounds like a graphics card problem, even if it is onboard. I'd try a replacement card (even if it's just a pci card) and see what happens...

I have purchased a Compaq Presario 600 with an Athlon XP 2200+ processor. I do not have a copy of Windows XP to wipe it with. Is there any way with the installed XP that I can refresh this system and remove data frome previous owners? Or Can I load Win 98?
 

A:Compaq Presario 600 ??

Compaqs usually have a hidden partition with all the factory loaded software on it in an image format. As long as it does and you can figure out how to access it you could probable do that - but you almost likely need the XP Product key and may need to reactivate XP after the recovery. XP can only be install on one machine at a time - so if they are still using it you are out of luck.

Watch the boot up for any recovery messages or take a trip to www.Compaq.com and look up the info for your make/model.

I friend of mine purchased this Presario in 2004. She hasn't had internet since about 2006, so she hasn't had any of the updates since then. I brought her tower home with me since I have internet to load her updates. We're trying to get it internet ready. When I brought it home last week nothing would open. So yesterday she gave me the system recovery disc. I started with the Standard Recovery, but there were too many files that it couldn't recover. So I then decided to do a full recovery. After the full recovery it was rebooting and it told me that not all the system could reload and I couldn't hit okaybecause it wouldn't read / acknowledge my mouse. So, I unhooked her computer and rehooked mine to see what her alternatives were. I found a website, they wanted to know all the things it wouldn't oload. All I can remember is that it was things that could me downloaded later like: Norton, AOL, Adobe, MSN, and QuickTime.

So, I unhoked mine and rehooked her's up (and booted up my laptop). When her's came back up it's saying: NTLDR is missing Pres Control + Alt +Delete to Restart

My question for you is there anyway I can save her conputer? She doesn't have a lot of funds, being a singe mother of a 7 yr old and I'm just a good friend trying to help her out.

Thank you in advance for any help you can provide

I decided to see what happened when I ctrl alt delete and then decided to do another recovery. Here's some more info (could not recover errors):

I was not sure just where this question should go so if this is not the right place please feel free to relocate it.

I have THIS desk-top:

Hewlett-Packard Compaq Presario CQ2723wPC
Windows 7 Home Premium 64 Bit
AMD EI-1200 Accelerated Processor
Memory = 4GB/G(something I can't make out) DDR
HardDrive = 500GB/
I am running a PPS PE9 photo effects program that is only working about 50%

I have found the minimum requirements for running this particular program:

Open GL 2.0 capable video card with 256MB dedicated RAM
Memory 8GB+

How do I find out what kind/size of video card, how much dedicated RAM, and available memory my unit has ?

If my unit is falling short in any of these requirements, is this something I can buy and is it within my abilities to make the necessary improvements ?

I am quite mechanically/electrically adept but I know little about the insides of a computer.

Thanks for reading.
 

A:Compaq Presario Particulars ???

The Compaq Presario CQ2723w Desktop PC(H2L89AA) comes with Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 64-bit and comes with this hardware:
Pegatron APXD1-DM(Redwood A) motherboard
AMD E1-1200 APU 1.40 GHz dual core processor which has an average benchmark score of 682
4 GB of DDR3-1333 RAM
Intel Radeon HD 7310 graphics which has an average benchmark score of 171
Realtek ALC662 high definition audio
Atheros AR8152 10/100 Mbps ethernet
500 GB SATA hard drive
Super-multi DVD burner disc drive
65 watt power supply

If you wanted a desktop that's speedy and has plenty of hardware upgrade options, you couldn't have picked one much worse than this one.
Its motherboard has no expansion slot for adding a graphics card, so you're stick with its wimpy integrated graphics which uses up to 1961 MB of shared memory.
Its slow wimpy processor is soldered to the motherboard and not upgradeable to a faster one.
It has only 4 GB of RAM, but it supports 8 GB, so you do have the option of adding more.

My parents bought a Compaq Presario laptop a few months ago and ever since we got it, it's been extremely slow. It's got Windows XP on it and after we click on whichever name we want to log on as, it literally can take up to about 7 minutes {if not longer} until it actually loads the desktop and everything. That's right, I kept track of time. Then, if we want to get on the internet {we have roadrunner} it takes even more time. I usually just sit there and watch a T.V. show while I wait for the home website to finally pop up.

I've tried a couple of things that I do to my own computer to make it faster, like going to msconfig and making sure the Startup List is unchecked. I also deleted those unnecessary things under IE-Tools-Internet Options like temporary internet files, cookies, history, etc. That makes my computer work better but when I try it on the laptop, it doesn't do a thing. It's still the exact same slow speed. I do have a Windows 2000 on my own computer and I've never worked with XP before so I don't know if there's a big difference there or what.

If anyone has had this problem or has any ideas on how to speed it up, that would be super!
Thank you!

Hello! I am attempting to change a 80mm fan in my Compaq computer. The fan I want to change is, I believe, called the CPU fan. It has a lever next to it and 4 screws holding it down. My question is this: Do I have to move the lever on the side of the fan in order to pull the fan up and proceed to remove the screws or do I just remove the 4 screws?  Also, how do I remove the screws considering the awkward position they are in? (I've been working on trying to remove the screws; however, it is difficult to maneuver the screwdriver into the top of the screws to remove them. This is because part of the fan case is above the screws making it necessary to place the screwdriver sideways in order to remove the screws.) Thank you for your response.

i have a question...a while ago my Presario battery died -- it wouldn't charge or discharge, the laptop could only work on the AC, but the indicator showed the correct % of the charge... I bought a new battery and it worked fine for a week, but I decided to reinstall Windows XP, and from then on, it's been a rollercoaster ride for me (( First, it worked fine, but the laptop started to freeze every 20 minutes. I followed the COmpaq's people advice and updated BIOS for some battery controller thing and updated the video driver. From then on, the problems with my new battery just started to overwhelm me First, the battery wouldn't charge when the laptop was ON. Then somehow it did charge. I decided to calibrate it, and now it doesnt want to charge -- on or off. The red light indicating the battery is flashing -- as it's not charging, and the indicator says "0" % of course.
Does anyone have any ideas?? Please? This only started after I reinstalled the Windows, so I am sure it's not hardware or the battery, everything worked just fine ((

A friend has a Presario X1300. It has a small problem. The power button only works once in a while (perhaps 1 in 20 presses). I thought perhaps it was a cold solder joint but even after touching up the button's pads its still has the problem.

It could be a bad switch, it looked like the switch had previously been replaced (although he hasn't had it serviced except to put in a new hard drive about a month before the switch went bad).

I found a post that indicated that someone found schematics for the motherboard and I was hoping that someone here would be able to point me in the right direction. I didn't find them on google. I'm going to replace the switch first, but if that doesn't work I have to assume there's some other problem that will need debugged.

I hate to see such a nice laptop go to waste because of a stupid power on problem.

I have found the service manual online. Its great, but has no schematics.

Yes the software comes on the HD. There is a 'System Recovery " disk that comes with it but I'm not sure exactlly what that has on it..It does restore the orginal files that were on the computer when it came from the factory so it seems that should be all that is necessary to keep the computer running incase of problems.

Hello bilmac1. Probably, when Windows was installed, it failed to recongize the BIOS as ACPI compatible. Or simply, APM is not enabled: check under "Power Options Properties" if the tab "APM" exists; if so, check the option "Enable Advanced Power Management Support" (if it's checked, uncheck it, weird as it sounds).

Recently took some hits on my Compaq Presario 7478 system. Got two or three nasties via the 'Net. After McAfee's virus scan and removal, began experiencing weird happenings, such as system closing down and restarting. Then just not starting. Tried a few remedies [probably inadvisedly], and finally the system seemed to hang on my restore at the same place repeatedly.
Ultimately the system could no longer establish my OS. Restore failed.
Bottom line: Could not invoke computer restore. Could do nothing with this computer.
Q... Being compaq is the BIOS set to a certain condition that would prevent my reformatting the hard drive and restablishing an OS? Is this an option I can override? If I were to piggy-back the existing hard drive onto an operating hard-drive and reformat would that solve this problem and permit me to then create or repair the hard drive subsequently to get my compaq back?
Sorry this is so wordy...
 

A:Compaq Presario dead

Have you tried disabling System Restore; then re-enable for a fresh start?

Failing that, format and install OS per instructions in your manual or the CD which came with your computer. If no CD, the OS should be installed in .cab files in Windows Explorer.

The BIOS should already be properly set

My compaq was working fine until one day it just went off during a user session. Pushing the power button made it try to start but when it began to load windows 98 it quit again. After serveral retries it finally started up again. It ran OK for about one week , then just went off again. This was during a user session.(user session meaning it was in use at the time). I tried to restart it but it would not restart. Finally it tried to start, then said press F2, then the video went out. Nosthing shows up on the screen now. When powered on you can hear the hard drive start up but that's about it. The three year warantee lapsed about a year ago . I was wondering whether or not this has something to do with the cmos battery. Apparently several people I know who purchased a Compaq laptop have run into the same problem. I have a friend who owns an IBM thinkpad which has done precisely the same thing. Any suggestions.
Sincerely
Frank
 

A:Compaq presario 1200XL111

It is possible for the cmos battery to cause similiar problems, but from what you are saying it looks like a processor problem. For the system to just shut off in the middle of being used and unable to start up again, shows the possibility that the processor has overheated and the machine has powered off, however because the machine is still too hot it wouldnt fully start up again.
To say that your video has then gone, could mean the processor is completely knackered, signs of life can still be seen from the machine but nothing will appear on the screen, in most cases the monitor will stay on standby even when the machine is powered on.

I suggest a new processor, with new heatsinc and fan.

I have a Compaq Presario 2700T with problems. When I press the start switch it runs for about five seconds and then shuts off. It doesn't even run long enough to give me any screen image. It does this on every attempt to start the computer now. Prior to that it flashed a blue screen on a previous start attempt but not long enough to read what it said.
Any ideas what is going on?
 

A:Compaq Presario 2700T

Does this happen when the power connector is attached?

Are there any lights on when the power connector is attached? For example, does the battery charge?

Do not be rough with the cable, but the power plug that connects to the laptop, does it make any difference if you gently bend the cable around or move the connector in the socket? (Occasionally over time either the cable becomes damaged or the socket becomes loose)

Hello,

I have a Compaq Presario 1247 Notebook (laptop) with Windows 98 Second Edition with a 4.3 Gigabyte hard drive that was logically partitioned into 2 drives (C: and D: ). Earlier this year I used my CD Burner to copy all of the Quick Restore files from the D: Drive to a blank CD-ROM (CD-RW) disk and then removed the partition from the hard drive with a program from the Compaq Website. My CD-Burner is connected to my Notebook via a PCMCIA USB 2.0 Card, it has 2 USB Ports on it, one port is being used by my CD-Burner the other port is not being used.

Last Friday (09-24-2004) my Notebook caught a virus while I was on the internet and it was corrupted. MS Windows Explorer error message came up when I tried to look at my hard drive. The error message also came up when I rebooted, therefore no desktop icons appeared. So I reformatted the hard drive C: and put the Quick Recovery CD-ROM Disk in the internal CD-ROM drive. However, the Quick Recovery Disk displayed a message that it could not find the Quick Restore files and to contact Compaq Customer Support. I reformatted my hard drive again this time with the /quick format switch and /make system disk switch and then copied all the files and subdirectories from the Quick Recovery CD to my hard drive. Now before I even tried to run FDISK to repartition my hard drive into 2 logical drives I thought I would put the CD (CD-RW) containing all of the Quick Restore files and subdirectories that I burned earlier this year (before I r...

Not sure if anyone can help here but worth a try.
I brought a new compaq presario desktop pc just before xmas. I got sick of all thier crap on it so I re-installed with another copy of windows xp prof sp2. Now I am having problems and want to go back to the original installation on the compaq.
Didn't do any restore disks as no-one explained this to me then. The install partition is still on the compaq but when I load up comp and try to press F10 to do it, it doesn't work (just keeps loading into windows). I can not figure out how to get the reinstall to start and am not sure how to do it manually. My brother has tried to manually start it in windows but it doesn't like this. Have tried changing the boot drive using the Esc and F1 keys as per start up options but it has the drive as grouped and can not specify H drive (where compaq restore is).
Any suggestions welcomed before I have to find more money to buy disk!
My brother has suggested that maybe we can delete the c drive partition therefore forcing the h drive to run, but want to leave this as a last result in case it doesn't work.
Thanks to anyone who reads this.

A:Need Help With Restore Of Compaq Presario

Ok Frad, if you want to restore the system to the way it was when you purchased it, the best way is to place the restore cd in your drive and restart. when the option comes up press what ever key you ned to to enter setup. scroll through the setup untill you can change the boot options. place the cd drive as your 1st boot option. when you have done that, save and exit setup. when the system reboots, you will be given the option to restore. READ THE WARNINGS CAREFULLY, THIS WILL FORMAT THE HARDRIVE AND ERASE ALL THE DATA THAT YOU HAVE. I recomend that you burn a copy of all your important files prior to doing this and good luck.

A:COMPAQ PRESARIO 3015us(HELP!!!!!!)

hmmm, when you formatted the hard drive, did you FDisk it prior? When I worked for Gateway tech support, we had a little saying, "if nothing else, then FFR"... which meant FDisk, Format, THEN reinstall OS, in that order. Give that a shot with a windows ME bootdisk. You can find the download at bootdisk.com

I have a compaq presario c300 notbook. It will not boot. I get the compaq screen, then nothing. It will not boot to the cd either. The backlight comes on, so it's not that. Please help. I'm lost.

A:compaq presario c300

Welcome to TSF....

To get it to boot from the cd you have to change the boot order in BIOS. This can be done during boot up when you can open the BIOS and set it.

The cd you used is it the recovery cd for the computer?

I am upgrading a Compaq Presario 5000 model #5WB220 with a very low 15 GB hard drive for a friend. It currently has Windows ME and there is no Compaq Restore CD.

I have increased the memory to 320 by adding an additional 256 MB RAM.

I am wanting to totally replace the 15GB hard drive with an 80 GB hard drive and load Windows XP Home.

The problem I am finding out is that Compaq has propriertory info on a partition within the existing drive. From what I understand without the Restore CD, I can't put the new drive in.

I'm wondering if there are any other alternatives to doing this.

Can I install XP on the existing drive and then transfer all the data (to include the compaq proprietory info) to the new drive in a slave position?
