1. the cpu may be running to hot.. do you hear a fan going on when you start your system?: as soon as you see the compaq message press f2 (I'm not sure if that's the key.. usually it's indicated at the bottom of the compaq screen then try to go into the the cmos/bios program and look for temperture information on your cpu... should be below 50 ...
2. it could also be a virus: did you install something recently?...
3. it could be a hardware problem.. did you install new memory recently.. try removing the new memory stick.
4. laptops are hard to troubleshoot so you may want to take the computer for service or get in contact with HP's representative online or over the phone, they may give you more pointer of what you can try or what you can do.
any other approach that you may take may require for you to get get the hard drive out to back up you data using the drive in another computer (may need to get an adapter or a enclosure with usb adapter but is possible) then reinstall os with the revorey partition that may still be avaliable by pressing and f key as directed also in the first compaq screen that you get to see.

Why won't my compaq presario 1250 load windows?


1 - You may need to roll back system with System Restore. Under Safe Mode (press F8 during boot and choose safe mode).
Win 7 - Start > Search type System Restore
XP - Is Start > All Programs > Accessories > System Restore. Now choose a date prior to problem. You may have to try a few dates.


2 - Try disabling startup programs. Go to Start > Run (search in Win 7) and type MSConfig. Startup tab and uncheck anything that you don't want Windows to load automatically. It will make Windows boot faster and use less resources while running. This just disables them in startup. Programs will still load, but when only you initiate.

Safe mode


Get windows 7, or downgrade to xp. lol kidding. During the start up, i beleve its either f11 or f12 press them it should bring you to a boot screen. follow option. or you can use the compaqs built in recovery system. reinstall your system. vista has a option to save its old files for transfer.

You should check your power supply. Could be the capacitor is already bloated or component is failing or dirty. Or check the regulator side of your motherboard for bloated capacitor, this can be easily seen because it is almost clustered in almost one place.

If this doesn't help this can be a problem is bios. Sometimes it is a corruption is bios.

Just for the input.

Only shows compaq on screen


I work with Compaq computers now and usually your problem points to the hard drive. I know Compaq's will stay on that screen if the hard drive has failed. Try another hard drive would be my suggestion.

Hope this helps.

Frozen during boot-up, keyboard still works


Sounds like the PC is running into a hardware failure and the Compaq splash screen is probably hiding some additional information. It?s been a long time since I've owned a Compaq, however, what you need to do first is eliminate the Compaq screen to show us whatever boot details it may be hiding. I seem to recall on my old Compaq (and most Dells) I had to disable the Compaq screen in the BIOS settings. Hitting the F10 key as soon as the Compaq screen appears I believe will get you into the BIOS program, however, be warned if you change anything in there by accident you will be causing yourself a world of trouble. After you get into there you want to look for the Boot selection of the menu. In there somewhere will be a setting referring to something similar to ?reveal boot details? or hide splash or Compaq screen?. If it isn?t obvious let me know, I?ll have access to an older Compaq with a similar BIOS and can give you more details. If you are able to disable the splash screen reboot the PC and watch for errors. Based on the age of the machine and past history I suspect you?ll find a boot disk or read error.
