    Well if you can ask this person what exactly he did and tell us, we should be able to help.

    Do you see the PC boot up, do you get a compaq logo? Are u only getting the black screen when the desktop is supposed to show up?

    If so, it is possible that the person changed your resolution to better fit the monitor he was using and now your monitor is not capable of displaying it. You will need to press f8 at boot up and go into safe-mode, change your display's resolution to a lower setting, such as 1024x768

    Reboot like normal - G'luck!

It sounds like your friends minor clean up formatted your hard drive, Ha Ha, I know its not funny but that hit a funny spot. try installing your windows again, it should read the disk and everything will come back on. With friends like that? Good Luck.

Why am I getting a white screen on startup but no desk top appearing?


If the laptop is under warranty, you may be able to get it fixed, but be sure to let them know if you have personal files that you don't want to lose.

Otherwise, the screen may be failing, or the hard drive may be failing, or just the OS or hard drive corrupted. You could try this... Pull the hard drive out, and use a USB Hard Drive Adapter to connect the hard drive to a friend's computer, and save all the personal files (documents, pictures, etc.) you can to a folder on the friend's computer or an external hard drive.
Then, you could try to do a Factory Restore on the computer, and if that works, copy your personal files back to your newly restored computer. If you cannot successfully Factory Restore, you may need a new machine.

How do I restore computer which is a compaq desk top


Most compaq PC's have a built in function to bring the PC back to it's factory state. This is stored on a small (hidden) partition on the hard disk and can be accessed by pressing F8 or F12 during bootup (before the windows splash screen). The menu option will be something along the lines of "repair your computer".
If you've changed hard drives, formatted, or deleted the partition, your only option will be to re-install windows using a windows disc.

Sir you have to reformat the hard drive and load the windows operating system windows xp,2000, vista or seven. then you need to load the application programs. You might be better off buying a working used computer. Also their are too many bad places to go to on the Internet.

Use the above link , and chat online with a customer service rep, give them your compaq model information along with the correct operating system and they can send you one to your home. Hope this helps. Otherwise just format the hard drive and reinstall the operating system again, just make sure you have a good copy of windows xp or vista before you format the hard drive.

You should try to Disk Clean up your hard drive, Defragment your Disk, Check your disk for any bad sectors and clear all cookies and temp files from your browser. Use either Ashampoo WinOptimizer, Advance Windows Care or Tune Up Utilities as an optimization software to optimize your system.

Take the hard drive out and get someone knowledgeable to put it in their system as a slave drive. Then plug your flash drive into their system and copy all the files to it. I'd say this is the fastest and easiest solution to the problem. You could always network it to another computer and transfer the files also.

Error loading operating system


If you take a hard drive for one computer to another the windows wil have to be reinstalled as windows looks at the hardware configuation and if it doesn not match, will not run. If the 20 gb hard is working , reinstall it then using backup software back it up to another hard drive.That will work. Personally I use" Acronis true home" software to change a hard drive but their  are other  wil also work. Some  backup and transfer softwware even come with the replacment hard drives.
