Question about Compaq Presario 700 470024-192 Notebook

1 Answer

My laptop won't start up

I have a Compaq Presario 2100, bought in 2003. It works fine. Until this morning, I turned it on and it only manages to go into hiberante and back off every time I press the power button. It doesn't actually load or start up. I don't even get to the page where it asks for my password. Help me please.

    I usually hold down the button to power down and when I press it a second time it usually takes me to where it should go. It's not happening this time. My bro pressed F8 but pressing that made no difference. I believe it has a virus. It goes from hibernate to off and back.

It maybe stuck in a hibernation mode.

Make sure to hold down the power button for 6 to 10 secs.

That should force the laptop to shutdown completely and then should be able to boot back up by pressing the power button like normal. You may get a choice about deleting hibernation info, do that and you should be back up and running. If not, press F8 while booting (before you see the XP logo) and choose safe mode, if you can get into safe mode, good, just reboot and it should go back into normal mode. There maybe more to it, please let me know.

    I would suggest performing a check disk on the drive.

    One way would be to boot off an XP install CD and choose repair console.

    Within the Repair Console type chkdsk and press enter.

You have to install the WiFi card with an Installer before it is recognized by device manager... go to the link below, and download the WiFi driver and install as Administrator. You will need to know your exact model number to do so.. Do NOT just get a WiFi driver that will NOT work, you must get installer version.
