All you can do is Reinstall windows. You should get the Windows Vista Installation CD with your laptop and all you have to do is put it in and restart your computer and when the message that says "Press any key to boot from CD" press a key.

If it doesn't show up, you may have to press a key like DEL or F12 to get the boot sequencer. When you first turn on the computer you should see the Compaq logo. At the bottom of the screen you should see some buttons to press to do things like BIOS and Boot Sequence. You want Boot Sequence. Once in boot sequence, select the CD-DVD and press any key when it says to.

Once in follow instructions or oyu can reply and i will tell you how to install.

Weird Noise


If the internal microphone is still "on", then it could be picking up internal sounds resonating within the computer when the fan kicks on, hard drive clicks and clunks, ect.

See if you can disable the internal microphone in the system settings.

Constantly running


Hello KOKOBEAR,

Is your computer more than a couple years old? If so, then the internal components, like the fans and heatsink may be dusty. When those parts get really thick dusty, the fans are not as efficient, and have to run harder to keep the computer cool.

If you're comfortable opening your case, you can take a look and see if there's a lot of dust. You may want to have an experienced friend or technician do the cleanup, as you may need to take off a part or two to do the really deep cleaning.
