HP Compaq FS7600 - won't boot -

I have a Compaq FS7600 It starts up and loads fine. But last night I had a popup that kept saying "restart now" and "restart later", for the new updates to be configured. I kept choosing restart later, because I was not done on my computer. I left my computer on, and this morning when I woke up it was started up but there is a black screen that gives me options to boot into safe mode, start windows normally, or other options. If I choose any, it doesn't matter because it takes me back to the Compaq screen, then a quick flash of the Blue Screen of Death, then it goes back to the menu where it tells me what I should start up in. I tried turning if on and off again, to no avail. I also unplugged it, but this didn't work also. Could someone please help me fix it? Thanks so much.

It sounds like the update screwed up Windows. Have you tried all the "last known good configuration" option? That sometimes gets the system going.

If safe mode and the other choices all are failing, you can try the recovery console if you have a Windows CD. Boot from the CD, let it do its thing, and choose the "R" option to repair an installation from the menu that you'll get. Once you're in the recovery console, the chkdsk command will scan the disk and try to repair corrupted files, and this will sometimes work.

If all else fails and you have the recovery CD's for the system you can restore the original software. If you're comfortable switching out a hard drive, you can buy a replacement drive (they're pretty cheap now) and restore the system on that, and you'll still have all your personal data intact on the original. (Just because Windows won't start, it doesn't mean you've lost anything like music or pictures.) After you get the system running again, you can install the original drive as a second drive and copy what you want to keep, then reformat that drive and use it for extra storage.

My compaq fs7600 monitor wont turn on

Hook a spare monitor to the computer, if no change! the Video Graphics Card is suspect usually built into the motherboard. But if spare shows picture, the problem lies in the HP monitor, as a last resort change the video cord from the computer to the monitor "if possible" to rule out something simple.

Black Screen Compaq Presario

Do you see the BIOS splash screen or anything?
Try booting into safe mode by pressing F* as soon as you power on the computer. If the monitor works, then it is a bad driver. Roll back to a previous restore point, boot to last known good coonfiguration. Last Known good configuration is available from the same as the safe mode screen.

If this is helpful, please comment and rate. Have any other questions, please let me know.
