Question about Compaq Presario 700 470024-192 Notebook
My Preario 700, on power up with either battery or mains, will not get past POST. If I hit
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.
