Compaq Presario CQ60 running slow?

Q: Compaq Presario CQ60 running slow?

Hello, I can use your help here please? Working on this Compaq Laptop running Win7 64 bit, laptop started working way too slow, i tried in this order Mbam which showed infections the first time, which it cleaned and then next scan did not show anything but laptop was still way too slow so I then tried, SAS, adwcleaner, JRT, none of these showed anything then Ccleaner, now the laptop works a lot better and faster but still slow, I ram memtest which showed no errors and unit has 2gb ram installed.
I tried running OTL but when I double-click on the icon, it asks to 'Choose Windows directory' but no matter which drive I choose from the list C or E [The Recovery drive], I get a prompt from the Runtime Scanner showing: Target is not Windows 2000 or later
Help?

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.

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

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

I was very happy surprised when the Windows 7 installation finishes, becausethe first that I did it was close and open the screen, and now was working very well. I did not know if the main problem was at the video device driver or in some differences between energy administration of Windows 10 and Windows 7. Then I follow the first thread, the video driver.

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. 

A:Compaq Presario CQ60, overheating and automatically shutting...

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.

I tried the Launch Startup Repair, but it gets stuck at the screen, and nothing pops up. Theres just a mouse.

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.

Can I get some help here?
Thanks.

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...

Hi all,
 
Haven't had to use your services since around 2012, thankfully, but seem to have picked up something I can't shake thru conventional (for me) methods.
 
Symptoms : the laptop runs normally for the first 5 mins from startup, then suddenly each access to File Manager, or any page on the internet through Chrome, takes 10-15 times as long as normal. The hard disc seems to be running (flickering light) almost all the time, whether a page is being requested or not. Task Manager shows the CPU at around 64%, pretty much steadily, while idle.
 
Hardware : Compaq Presario CQ 81 laptop, running Windows 7.
 
History : no previous infections since 2012, when I installed Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware and rid everything that infected the same hardware being used now. The Anti-Malware has been resident since then, showing no infections, until last week.
I have not downloaded and run any new programs in the last 2 weeks.
The hard drive is only 50% full, with plenty of space, and does not need de-fragging.
This is a home computer that has never run a game, nor very large apps, in it's life.
It mostly surfs the internet on demand, and is rarely left connected to the internet for more than 4-6 hours at a stretch.
 
Clean-up attempts so far :  I have run in Safe Mode - iExplore, JRT, Tdsskiller, AdwCleaner. Malwarebytes Anti-Malware found over 70 infection on the C: drive, and cleaned them all out. Subsequent runs in Safe Mode have found nothing. iExplore foun... Read 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!

What is the "sometimes it acts wierd" more specifically.
I wonder about your RAM. According to the specs link you gave your MOBO can only handle up to 1GB which is the minimum to run windows 7.
And it is usual for windows to slow down after time. I use 8GB RAM and a i5 processor but still I notice some slowdown to when I first got it, which is only a few months ago. Try clearing out all your temporary files etc. CCleaner is good for this.
You might want to clean out the dust accumulation inside and around the CPU, if you haven't done this recently.

Have you checked the temps? .... You can use SPECCY to check the system.

Hi,

Ever since I've bought this computer (beginning of 2009) my Compaq Presario CQ40 has been extremely slow. I don't really run much software on it, but it takes around 10-15 minutes to start up all processes.

I run Microsoft Security Essentials and Windows Firewall as security, but it previously had Trend Micro Internet Security in 2009.

I do Disk Cleanups, a full defrag through CMD and a chkdsk /r but it's still painfully slow.

The CPU fan is nearly always running all of the time, and after a quick Google this seems to be a problem in the Presario?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
