    Hi Sticks92387,

    Before I could provide you some helps I need to know if you use Windows Xp or Vista.

Hi again,
Sorry but I cannot help you because I am not an expert of Windows Vista, I could help you with Win Xp but not with that.

I hope someone else is reading your post and will help you.

When I turn on the laptop, the asus screen comes up and it seems to be booting but after a long while shows an error and restsrts never actually booting up


While it starts to boot up, press the ESC key, or appropriate key that allows you to enter into setup. From the setup area, look for an option to boot into safe mode or into a Command Prompt. Once in safe mode, if it works, press start, and go to run and enter CMD. In this window type in bootrec /fixmbr and press enter. Next type in bootrec /fixboot and press enter. Restart your computer normally.

If you can start in the command prompt, enter in the same commands.

Also if you have a windows recovery or windows installation disk you can access the command prompt as well as fix any issues that are cauing your machine to not boot.
Here is a step by step guide on how to solve such problems.

Boot up problem


Dear sir/madam,

Please try these following steps.

1.) First You Need to Check if the HDD is Working Properly Or Not, So First Turn off Your Computer Completely and U Have to Tun it Back On.
Now As Soon as U Turn it On(Before the Compaq Screen Disappears, Keep Tapping the F10 Key Immediately To Go to BIOS.

Now In Your BIOS Go to The Tools Option and Execute the HDD Self test, Both Short and Long
[If the Test Fails Call Compaq Support @ 1-800-HPINVENT For Replacement]
[If The Test Says No IDE Device Found - U Must Try to Reseat the HDD]
[To Reseat the HDD - Turn U R NB Upside down and U Will Find a Comparment That Has the Symbol of Stack of Discs or Cds, Just Unscrew the Compart Ment and Pull the HDD Out, Then Put if Back it And Screw it Back]

Dont Worry - The Steps I Quote Here, Are Compaqs Prescibed Steps and It Will Not Void U R Warranty, If Fact If U Call Technical Support, They Will Advise U to Do the Same thing!!!!

If Both the Tests Pass then The HDD is Fine(90% It Should Not Be the Problm)

2.) Again Turn Your Computer Off and Turn it Back On and Before the Compaq Screen Disappears, Tap the F11 Key Which Bring Up the Built in Recovery Partion Menu.

From then On It is All Menu Driven

Note : Select Destructive Recovery If U Don't Have Any Importat Data in U R HDD
Else Select Non Destructive Recovery

Good luck
Thanks

    How to get to boot chooer on tne m700 starts


    Hi.

    1. Turn on the computer. When the Compaq logo displays, press F10. Or,
    2. During Power On Self Test (POST), and after the memory check completes, press F10 as soon as you see a small white square flashing on the top right corner of the screen.
    3. In the computer setup, use the right arrow to move the selection to the Advanced menu.
    4. Use the down arrow to move the selection down to Boot options, and press Enter. The Boot options menu pops up with four boot order options.
    5. Use the down arrow to move the selection.
    6. Press the left arrow to change the order of Notebook.
    7. Press F10 to accept the change.
    8. Press ESC to jump back File menu, and then move the selection down to "Save changes and exit".
    9. Press Enter. If asked to save changes and exit, press F10.
    On some laptops you can change the boot order by tapping the F12 key as the computer starts up.

    You can solve this errors with following 2 methods.
    (1)When you power up the computer press F8 key then enter in safe mode.
    Then if you are able to enter in safe mode then uninstall driver or software which you installed recently and face this error.
    (2)If you are not able to enter in safe mode Then you need to fix error on hard drive.For that you need windows disk or recovery disk.
    Boot your computer with that disk
    For that when you power up the computer press F1 or F2 "del" key to enter in bios.
    Then go to boot menu and set first boot device as your cd or dvd rom.
    Then save settings and exit bios.
    Insert windows disk in cd /dvd rom.
