Question about Compaq Presario 700 470024-192 Notebook

1 Answer

Laptop randomly shuts off

I have a Compaq Presario 700 laptop with Windows XP. It seems to randomly shut off, but more often when I try to open a Word document. It's weird as sometimes it will work if I go slowly to open it, but even then, it may shut off when I'm in the middle of typing in a Word document. Also, it tends to happen more often when I connect to the internet. And it has even done it (although less frequently) when working in other programs.
The sreen flashes blue with white text, although it shuts down too quickly for me to read starts with, "A problem has occured..." The computer then automatically reboots and I always get one or more "Error reports". When I open the report, it shows as the files included in the report are:


note: I've noticed that when there are multiple error messages, the numbers within the files may vary slightly, but the file name basically stays the same. For example, mini100108-28.dmp may be on another error message as mini100108-29.dmp (29 instead of 28). Similar to the other file: WER34.tmp may also show as WER32.tmp or WER37.tmp

I had completely erased everything and went throught he recovery discs and everything, but it still odes the same thing.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Partition not 100% on laptop 700 presario

From the description loo\ks like it's not a partition problem, but the Compaq CD.
Try to partition Hard Drive using Windows 98 bootable CD.
Try to install Win XP from different CD - doesn't have to be Compaq. Later you can download drivers.

Laptop Wont Boot Up

In that situation, try to boot it in SAFE MODE. You get into this by pressing F8 during boot up. The menu will come up and you choose the mode you want. While in safe mode you will have to try and use system restore to go back to when the computer was working. It's like PC time travel.
