Question about Compaq Presario 700 470024-192 Notebook

1 Answer

Laptop can't get past POST

My Preario 700, on power up with either battery or mains, will not get past POST. If I hit when the little white square appears I see the POST happening and it gets stuck at "ATAPI CD-ROM: sR243T" and will remain there until quite possibly the next ice age. If I hit F10 it proclaims that it is entering setup but again, it will just sit there until the end of the universe as we know it.

Any suggestions ??

It sound's like you're having a cmos issue. The controller card for the cd-rom is hanging waiting for something else to run. Remove any media (cds etc) from the machine and start it again. Enter the cmos and turn the CD rom off as one of the boot devices. Then try to restart the computer. If this doesn't work then I would guess that the installed OS is fried and needs to be reinstalled as the only other thing that could cause this is a corrupted ini or dll file that the system can't read that is necessary for the cd rom to operate or function properly.

This sounds like it could be an overheating issue. Some manufacturers use a cheap thermal paste on their processors. If you are dealing with a computer this should be an easy fix but if you are dealing with a laptop then it is much more involved. Go to Youtube and research replacing or removing heat sink. You wont be replacing the heat sink but the procedure is the same except you will need to clean the old paste off your heat sink before you apply more. Don't go crazy with the paste, a little goes a long way, all you are doing with the thermal paste is ensuring full contact between the processor and the heat sink with no air gaps.

Compaq presario C301TU laptop no power


Remove the main battery and try to power up, if it works replace the battery, no change! remove one stick of ram memory and repeat keeping one stick at all times, if none of these work the problem is more than likely the motherboard.

Well, the problem with this could be a simple one or difficult depending on what motherboard you have in the system. Look for the CMOS battery, it usually resides in one of the compartment on the bottom of the case.
On the bottom of the laptop, take off the access door to the memory, see if your laptop has the Cmos battery that has a small plug attached to the battery. There are two types that went with the F700...one would be a "Disc" battery that sits in a slot on the motherboard. The other is that same battery but it is covered and has a cable and plug attached to it. Here is what needs to be done to wipe out the BIOS password. The contacts between the + and - need to be grounded while the laptop is turned on. You can accomplish this with just a small wire that is attached to each lead. In the disc and socket type, ground the side contacts with the center contact. In the case of the plug and cable, simply ground the two pins of the socket on the motherboard. This will effectively "bridge" the two contacts. Now power up the laptop with this bridge in place. Wait approx. 2-3 minutes, ot long enough for the unit to "POST". Now shut the laptop down, remove the unit's main battery. Remove the "bridge" between the two contact points and re-install the CMOS battery. Now using only power from the AC adapter, power the laptop back up. If it still asks you for a password, just hit enter and see if it will let you into the BIOS. If it does not ask for a password then you are all set, either way. Once it powers on and there is no problem, power it down and reinstall the main battery. Reboot once more.

Compaq Presario 700 Series Laptop wont turn on


Please first make sure that your adaptor is working.
Try to remove the battery and connect your laptop to the adaptor. Swith on. If nothing chages, then there is good chance that you have a motherboard related problem.

RE: bios password reset


You have to remove the CMOS battery then put it back in to reset the password. The CMOS battery is on the motherboard itself, so you will need to strip down the computer to the motherboard and do it. The battery looks like a little watch battery. There are a few online tutorials you can find on google to take apart your computer.
