Q: Compaq Presario CQ60 Motherboard

Hi! My wife's laptop no longer takes a charge from the power supply. I have tried different batteries and different power bricks. No charge. I want to try replacing the motherboard (thinking it may well be the power jack that isn't working.) Can anyone tell me what the correct model number is for my motherboard? I see several out there to buy including 498462-001 and 501266-001. Are either of these the correct one? Thanks,Tom.

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.)

Hi and welcome to the Forum. So you took a HD from one laptop to another with the original Windows 7 loaded up? If that is the case then you have an OEM Windows 7 that is only licensed for the PC that it was originally loaded into. It is not legal to use it on another machine.

Hi,  This is now an old laptop, maybe 7 years old, but hardly used and perfectly functioning on Windows 7. However, I want to update it to Windows 10.   I believe it is no longer free, but will cost me about £100. My question is - is my laptop compatible with Windows 10.  I don't want to buy it over the internet and its not compatible. Many thanks. Mary Ann

A:Compaq Presario CQ60 - is it compatible with Windows 10??

Hi,Officially I do not think Hp releases any windows 10 drivers. However I have installed win 10 on systems much older than yours and usually it is sufficient to let Microsoft install the drivers for all the devices automatically. Sometimes (rarely) it can be necessary to install drivers from other sources such as the manufacturer of the various devices or drivers released for different computers which have the same device.Anyway you can try to install windows 10 for free initially by downloading it from Microsoft. Create a small partition on your harddrive of about 20 gb and install win 10 in dualboot and see if everything works correctly and then subsequently you can choose to wipe the drive and reinstall Win 10 or delete the win 10 installation and continue with 7.In my opinion win10 will work fine.https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/windows10 Let me know if you need any further help,David

A:What is the correct AC adpater for the Compaq Presario CQ60?

Hi,Different models have different power requirements 65W or 90 W. You can see on page 1-5 of service manua.http://www.notebook-manuals.com/laptop-manuals/service_manual_for_COMPAQ_Presario_CQ%2060_f90f2aca5c_Compaq%20CQ60.pdf So you can get one of 90w which will be good for all models. The best idea is to buy them online where the prices are cheaper or even get a good universal adapter. Example:https://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_noss?url=search-alias%3Delectronics&field-keywords=Compaq+Presario+CQ60+ac+adapter Hope it helps,David

So, I have a Compaq presario CQ-60 running windows 7 home premium. I have been troubled by monitor flicker. its seemingly random. happens in pulses. almost like a block or grid flashes up on the screen, and it disappears. pretty frequently. in irregular places at irregular times. like I said, frequent but very random. I have a second monitor connected to the laptop's output, my dell HD 22 from my desk top and there is no flicker seen on that screen. I have opened the laptop and checked for loose, damaged wiring. it all inspects OK. ( I am pretty good with electronics) I am at the point where i am beginning to suspect my inverter circuitry is to blame because the monitor output does not flicker, so that should tend to isolate the trouble to the laptop's display circuitry. right? I figured since the display is bright, not discolored at all, and the inverter is supposedly hi voltage circuitry it just tends to seem logical that it could cause this random flickering because of the voltage or whatever. I tested the ram chips one at a time and they are OK.

There are strange noises coming from the inside of my laptop. It makes a crackly noise like static and a screeching noise like a fax machine or an old modem.

It doesn't happen all the time, but it's worrying me. There's a history to this. I bought a laptop a couple of weeks before Christmas, but it seized up and refused to boot either normally or from the recovery drive. This happened within 2 days of buying it and shortly after hearing noises like those I've got now.

The first one couldn't be repaired but it was exchanged, no-quibble - immediately, so I've had this one for a few weeks. The fact that I'm hearing strange noises now from this replacement makes me think that either it's normal and was nothing to do with the crash, or that this model has a failing somewhere. I've googled and can't see anything relating to either.

Any ideas?
 

A:Compaq Presario CQ60 - strange noises from inside

Take it back and let them hear it. It's up to them to make good on whatever purchase you've made. They may well have had more than one complaint on these particular laptops and know there's issue with the bunch of them. Don't be concerned about getting what you've paid for. Jazz

Hi. I have a Compaq Presario CQ60 that is about a year old. These days I have been experiencing problems with my laptop. The problem is that the top hand corner gets hot, and then my laptop automatically shuts down itself. There is plenty of battery on my laptop, and it also happens, while my charger is plugged into it. This mainly happens when I am at school, where  I do not bring my notebook fan cooler. I can basically do nothing, because every 30 minutes it will automatically shut down itself. It even happens when I am in "Battery save" mode. This is starting to irrate me, because I have only had this laptop for about a year, and my warranty just expired so there isn't much I could do. I have read about this being a problem to a lot of people... I am wondering if it has something to do with my battery, because it is really bad. It only lasts for about 30 minutes from 100% to 10%. I do not know what the problem is, because I have no expertise in laptops. I hope  you can help me.

You should post your issue on the laptop forum.   If you bought your laptop using a credit card then check with your credit card company about a possible warranty extension.  Some credit card companies do extend the manufacturer's warranty by 1 year on electronics when the device is purchased. It's possible that there is too much dust inside the PC.

And if I hit Start Windows, it all goes well, but then after it starts windows, before I get to the login screen, it quickly flashes to a blue screen with text on it for a few milliseconds, and then just goes ALL the way back to the Windows Error Recovery.

I had the same problem as well... I was able to boot up in strictly safemode no networking and back up all my documents and then re-install windows. My restore points were not active so I couldn't go that path of attack to fix the problem. after the re install was finished and 1 round of update were done I continued to do the second round of updates from then it BSODed... luckily system restored worked this time and I am guessing one of the updates are affecting the compaq presario CQ60 models... this is very upsetting. I am also now setting up a Ubuntu partition and thinking I will use that primarily from now on... I hope my story can help you out or give someone an idea to help you out.

Hi.  I'm trying to find out for my brother if his Compaq Presario CQ60-210US laptop, which is running  a  Vista 32-bit OS, can be upgraded to a 64-bit version/editon of Windows like 7, 8/8.1 or 10?   As stated, the laptop's OS is  Vista 32-bit and I think its Vista Home Premium, but I'm not sure.  It has 4GB of RAM which is the max for a 32-bit OS.   I realize that you cannot do an in-place upgrade from a 32-bit OS to a 64-bit OS and that a clean install will be necessary, but does anyone know if this laptop's hardware, BIOS etc. support 64-bit operating systems?  Thanks.

A:Does the Compaq Presario CQ60-210US laptop support Windows 7...

Hi, HP officially supports Windows Vista and Windows 7:      http://support.hp.com/us-en/drivers/selfservice/Compaq-Presario-CQ60-Notebook-PC-series/3837670/mode... Therefore very safe to upgrade to Windows 7. It won't support more than 4GB, no point to run 64bit OS      http://support.hp.com/us-en/product/Compaq-Presario-CQ60-Notebook-PC-series/3837670/model/3860048/do... Regards.

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...

Hey all,
Does anybody know if all of the motherboards in the Presario V6000 laptop series are the same size and shape?

More specifically, does anybody know if a V6000 motherboard would fit in a V6310 case?

If you need more info, let me know.

Thanks!

Hi -
First - I'm new to the forum - just found it - outstanding resource! I have a few old PCs, and am sure I will be using this frequently!

My problem - I found my Compaq Presario SR 123 ONX mysteriously turned off this morning, and I couldn't get it to restart. Tried all the usual things, including disconnecting everything from the rear and trying different power outlets. While doing this, I noticed that there was a blinking green LED next to the power input. I took the side off, noted the power supply number (ATX-250-12ZD2) and looked up the specs online. I disconnected everything inside the PC from the power supply except the motherboard (thinking it couldn't possibly be that). Plugged power back in and light still blinked. Disconnected the motherboard, plugged in and the green light glowed steadily, not blinking.
From what I read, this indicates that the problem is the motherboard.
My question is - what should I get? The specs for the pc are 3200+ AMD Athlon XP.
How expensive are these, and is there a component on the board I can check easily before I take it out and replace it?

Thanks in advance for your help!

Bob
 

A:Compaq Presario SR 123 ONX - what type of motherboard?

I would try another power supply first, they fail a lot more often then motherboards and the indicator LED isn't always a sure thing.

If you do need to replace the motherboard it needs to be the 100% identical replacement motherboard for a Compaq Presario SR123ONX or the connections and software will not work.

I recently acquired a Compaq Presario 5030 desktop from a friend who acquired a newer Compaq desktop.

I have looked inside the case, but it is too cluttered with hardware. I have checked various sites with no luck.

It has an Intel Pentium II 300 MHZ processor, an Intel 440LX/EX chipset, 1 PCI and 1 ISA and 1 PCI/ISA combo slots, and 2 168-pin RAM slots.

If anyone has any idea what brand/model motherboard is installed in this computer, I would really appreciate it.

Hey guys, been a while since I last posted here.
Alright so recently I got myself a Compaq Presario SR1000 which I stumbled across in my local market after buying some new gear for work, the PC is fully refurbished and was W-XP and now W-7 after a complete format of the hard drive and sticking Windows 7 on.
Also got myself a decent enough graphics card for the PC games I currently own.

Okay now so, eh...The computer itself is very old and the hardware within it before I had installed the new graphics card which is a Radeon HD 6670 is say more than five years old at least, I'm wanting to turn this computer into a new gaming PC and so I'm looking for a new motherboard.

I'm not sure at the moment of what type motherboard it is, but I'm thinking its a MATX (Mid-ATX) board.
I'm wondering though if anyone knows of any other motherboard that would fit the Presario SR1000?

A:Compaq Presario SR1000 motherboard upgrade

If you want to upgrade, along with a new motherboard, you will need new memory, CPU, CPU cooler and power supply at a minimum. Basically you are building a brand new computer. As cases are relatively inexpensive I would also go with a better case that has more cooling as it will be needed for a "gaming" system. Factory PC cases are not usually designed with the cooling needed for a gaming PC. Also consider Compaq Presario computers (and cases) are the "low end" or "inexpensive" line from HP.

Hello,I have a problem with HP Compaq Presario CQ62-207S0. My motherboard died about 10 days ago. Since it is very hard to find same motherboard I want to know if the motherboard from this (HP Compaq Presario CQ62-a10S0) notebook will work with mine notebook. This is the only similar motherboard that I have found. I know that the sockets are different, but the person that is selling this motherboard also sells the processor with it and I can get DDR3 RAM easily since my notebook uses DDR2. I just want to know are there any other things that may be the problem. Thanks in advance.Kind regards,Stefan

not sure if this is the correct place to post my apologies if it is not. Here is my problem, I got a compaq presario 6000 desktop from a friend to fix, he had someone install windows xp on it, and the onboard lan internet is not working it needs the correct drivers. My problem is he knows nothing of the computer and has none of the original software. So I went to the hp/compaq page to download the drivers, problem is the pc only says it is a presario 6000. I have looked everywhere on the case and motherboard for the t code or sn# as the web page suggests. I have checked the system info and it only says it is a compaq presario, same in bios. Hopefully someone can help. Some other info hopefully of value it does say it is a zztop/pine amer cto on top, the motherboard says it is an n1996 and has a 686y4 sticker on it. any help in identifying this compaq so I can put the correct drivers is greatly appreciated

You can try this - updates Bios tho so you could crap out the whole thing.

It seems the mighty HP/Compaq dropped the ball again for support.

edit: searched using the second id code 686y4 and got:

Is there any affordable way to upgrade Mother board MCP61PM-HM (Iris8) and HHD to this very old system. Motherboard supports the following processor upgrades:Athlon 64 X2 with Dual Core technology up to 4800+ (up to 65 Watt TDP)Athlon 64 up to 3800+Sempron - All Hard drive is Size: 500 GBInterface: SATARotational Speed: 7200 RPM I pulled it out of box after years of beinf idle after learning that Vista will no longer be supported by Microsoft. Thanks,

A:Upgrade Compaq Presario SR5510F Desktop Motherboard and HHD

@CGBow3,Interesting question, so I'll give you my opinion on each item.Processor update to the AMD ADO4800DDBOX Athlon 64 X2 Dual-Core 4800+ 2.5GHz 1MB Cache Processor. Used chips can be less than $30, New about $100.Hard drive replacement.  Get a newer AF (Advanced Format) drive, either 500GB or 1T.  Do not go above 2T.  I like Seagate, but WD is a second choice.  Both offera free version of cloning software. OK, now about the OS.  You might be able to find the "upgrade" DVD. Be sure it states "Upgrade" in the top left corner of the packaging. Also you need the 32bit version, as your original was 32 bit.  The upgrade version does an overlay into the OS. It does not destroy the files.  Some drivers will need to be researched.

My current processor is the AMD Athlon X2 7550, but I need to upgrade.In the HP Product Especification I found this (http://h20564.www2.hp.com/hpsc/doc/public/display?docId=c01717867), and they listed this:Motherboard supports the following processor upgrades:AMD Phenom II Quad-CoreAMD Phenom II Triple-CoreAMD Phenom Quad-Core (A) 9xxx series (AM2+)AMD Phenom Triple-Core (T) 8xxx series (AM2+)AMD Athlon X4AMD Athlon X3AMD Athlon X2 (B) (AM2+)And I saw in other site that the Phenom II X4 955 works fine, but are not recognized by the BIOS (name), but they are talking about the M2N68-LA (NARRA3) motherboard, and my motherbard is NARRA5, not NARRA3.Whatever, I was wondering if my M2N68-LA (NARRA5) motherboard supports the Phenom II X4 965, wich has a TDP of 95 watts (This motherboard only supports 95 watts processors).If you think a cannot upgrade to that processor, what is the best processor a can get?Thanks for any help

Hi, Need help in putting jumpers on Motherboard #120694 it's a Compaq presario 5340 Desktop tower, All jumpers are missing. A pic of the motherboard would be great. I would really appreciate the help, Thanks.
 

A:Jumper setting for Compaq Presario 5340 Motherboard

That machine was sold in 1999. Compaq used mainly Asus and some Lite-On boards. Examine the board and see if there is a manufacturers name on the board. Although the board would be manufacturer proprietary what Compaq did in those days was usually use a standard board, and change the BIOS.

If you can find a manufacturer name and model on the board you may be able to backtrack and find the equivilent retail board that they used before modification.

A:Solved: HELP!! Motherboard upgrade for ED878AA Compaq Presario SR1630

With all the parts you are looking at changing,you would probably
be better off buying a new computer case and building from
scratch.
If you change the motherboard and cpu,you won't be able
to use the oem operating system that came with your computer.
Buying a case can keep you from having to deal with the
proprietary connections in the compaq.
You should be able to use the drives from the compaq.
That way you can use whatever motherboard fits your new case.
