Q: Compaq Presario 700 and battery

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 ((
Please help me!!!! Thanks... I'm desperate....

I am trying to confirm the appearance of the cmos battery in a compaq presarion 1200xl-111 notebook. At the location shown in the manual is a socketed item that looks like an old single transistor. Approx 3/8" (10mm) . It has no markings for voltage, and despite the fact that compaq support says to remove the battery to reset the password, it is not in the parts list?

When I look up a replacement, at a battery site which has photo's,it shows a standard 3.3 v watch type battery as the replacement. If it is a replacement it must have prongs on the back to insert. I have tried gently to remove it, but it will require more force to remove than I want to apply without checking to be certain it is the component.

Sorry to be so wordy, but did want to give full history. Familar with desktop units, but new to laptops.

Thanks for any assistance.

A:cmos battery on compaq presario

I have never heard of a cmos battery in that configuration. I personally doubt that is the battery. I would think it would be one of the standard 3.3v round button cells about the size of a quarter.

I have an old Compaq Presario 1070 laptop, running Windows 98. It hasn't been used for many years, I want to revive it to run piano lessons via its MIDI port. Running on AC, LCD shows AC connection, green power light comes on, but it will not boot. I'm certain the CMOS battery is dead(referenced to be a CR1220, 3v cell). WHERE IS IT? and how do you access the battery. Thankyou.
 

A:Compaq Presario 1070 CMOS battery

It should still boot and give you an error even with a dead CMOS battery, not always but in most cases.

The battery may be located under a panel on the bottom or in the battery compartment. Actually have you tried booting with the battery removed?

I need to replace the CMOS battery on the motherboard of my Compaq Presario 1200 Laptop. Does anyone have instructions on opening the case to access the battery?
I have been able to get the case open enough to access the Hard Drive but can't figure out how to get all of the way to the battery which, I believe, is very near the back of the unit under the hinges to the screen.
If I were able to remove the screen, I might be able to get that part of the case apart.

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.

The normal battery that came with the laptop is 10.8v 4090mah. However, the battery is now weak and I'm looking to replace it. But the replacement battery I found has a bigger capacity ? 6600mah 11.1v. I want to know if its safe for my laptop, because many people from Google search results said its okay if its 11.1v, and some online store sellers also said it's okay to use 11.1v replacement for a 10.8v battery.Please let me hear your opinions.

Hi!

I own a Compaq Presario 1247 laptop (AMD K6II/400MHz, 2.2V, 160 MB RAM, 30GB HDD, 24x CDROM, model number 1456VQLIN, 3 or 4 years old I think...), and the darn thing won't power on. I gave it to my sis and it came back dead. She had taken it to compusa I believe, where the guy told her to replace the battery. When I plug it into the wall socket, the LED to indicate it's plugged in comes on, but the one that indicates the battery is charging doesn't. The battery has a light indicator to say how much charge is in it, and none of the leds come on (0% I guess). Pressing the power button has no effect, whether or not the battery is inserted into its bay. I'd bring it to compusa here, but they charge $140 just to look at the machine... since a battery costs less, I thought I'd try getting a new one first, but it seems strange to me that the computer won't boot when the battery is out of the bay. Am I barking up the wrong tree? Should I be looking for other causes? (fried motherboard, maybe, I dunno?) Thanks mucho for any help at all (or even sympathy )!

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.

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.

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

while in windows...it just will either not charge the battery..or flicker from AC to battery

i CAN power the unit on with the battery alone, and i CAN power the unit with the cord alone...

lastly, my old motherboard (which had a HD connector problem)...still WILL charge the battery...so i'm sure its not the battery...i don't think...

Hopefully you are experienced in working on and repairing laptops/notebooks... and you carefully handeled the replacement motherboard and didn't damage it. Repairing laptops takes considerable skill and caution.

It does sound like the "new" motherboard is bad unfortunately. How did you handle the "old" operating system restore to the "new" motherboard?

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.

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.

You should have gotten a Restore CD with your laptop. That is the OS and all specific drivers, apps and Compaq features that were on the system. Anytime you install a "fresh" OS, you will lose all that stuff. With Compaq, I think this is not all bad. If you bought the laptop with something other that Win2K, then you are most likely SOL and on your own.

Hello bilmac1. Probably, when Windows was installed, it failed to recongize the BIOS as ACPI compatible.

After unsucessfully trying to get rid of some nasty Malware (Antivirus XP Pro 2009 to be precise) I'm currently trying to perform a factory reset on my Compaq Presario SR1909uk which had Windows XP.

I'm performing this from the recovery discs I created when I bought the PC.
However, I keep getting various error messages saying either

'Cannot copy file C:\1386\APPS\APPS15417\src\VIRUSCAN7.DAT or

C:\1386\APPS\APPS15417\src\Setup\asCore\Antispam\btevclid.dll\MANIFEST\asnmobj.spm

I keep aborting when I get these messages and the progress perecetage remains. If I do this until I reach 100% do you think it will work?

Other than buying some new recovey discs from Compaq or taking it to be fixed, are there any alternatives please?

Thanks

A:Compaq Presario SR1909uk with XP

Try cleaning your Recovery disc.

I bought a presario 1500 that I had assumed had a problem with green lines that were on the lcd and external monitor. The lady who owned it had taken it apart and sold it to me that way. I bought it today and tested it when I got home. I powered it on and I saw that the fan will move slightly but won't start and the hard drive will start but shuts down after about 5-10 seconds. The power light always stays on but nothing else. I noticed when I unplug the hard drive and battery inverter board(see link) it will shut off the power light. Could that be the problem? I don't see how the motherboard could break when it was never used. Anyone have some advise?

This looks like a power supply controller card issue. Also some systems will not run if the CPU fan is not working. You need the battery inverter board in place to power the system and light the light.

The D: drive is a "restore partition" = RP. This is an exact image of your computer when you first bought it. To use it: When you first start the computer there will be a black screen with probably three different choices of keys to press. One of them will be something like system restore or restore. Hope you get the idea. Select the proper key and follow the onscreen prompts.One other option may be to go to the HP\Compaq (HP bought Compaq) site or call them. You may be able to get the discs for a small fee.

I have this old Compaq and I used to be able to burn CD's until the day I stuck in my little portable device one would use to store pictures and things..I forget what its called,but you can insert it into a USB port then add or remove pics or anything and remove it and put it back around your neck and go. Anyway after doing this one day I go to burn a Cd and my computer is telling me I have these new drives called E,F,G, & H, which it has now bundled into something called a USB mass storage device. it no longer recognizes that i have a working burner.. it does not even recognize that I have a drive D. All it is reading is those removable device drives that came along with my junk drive. The 'Safely Remove Hardware" option has been coming up and ive used it to disable these other drives..but its still not working..How can I fix this?

A:compaq presario SR1103WM

Right-Click on My Computer, select Manage. In the left pane there should be a listing for Disk Management - click that.

Now, in the right pane, scroll down and see if your CD is listed, but has no drive letter. If so, right click on the grey part and choose "assign letter". I would use Z: (no chance of a USB device trying to grab that letter).

I need to completely reformat my compaq presario but have no idea how to format it since it is using vista. help help me do it step by step. thank you.

reen

A:Compaq Presario Vista

1. turn on computer and tap on F11 repeatedly until the Compaq screen disappears
2. click Advanced Options
3. select system recovery (may say restore the computer to factory settings)
and click recover without backing up files, click next

It will do the rest on its own.

Do this with ONLY mouse, keyboard, monitor and power attached. If you added any parts inside other than ram you will need to remove them to ensure it works properly.

Thats all!
