It looks like one of the start up files have been changed or corrupt. Any change to the boot environment will cause this problem. The solution here could be a bit long but you just have to take your hard drive to the other computer and back up all your user data and files you need. Then take is back to the Laptop, just in case anything goes bad. Get a copy of the operating system you are using on a CD and let the computer boot from it by pressing F2 or Del to get into the BIOS and go to the Boot Sequence or Boot order to make the CD rom the first device to boot from. Then press F10 to save and exit. This will allow the computer to boot form the CD. Choose the repair option to repair the master boot record. If you are using Windows XP, put the CD in and choose Repair on the first window. This is a command prompt and this is what you are going to type in the command prompt to install the Automatic System Recovery (ASR) winnt32.exe /cmdcons and this will install the recovery console. In the recovery console, type fixmbr to fix the master boot record

SOURCE: my compaq armada 3500 wont boot up or only shows the welcome compaq logo

I think that has to do with the BIOS if it cant boot compeletly. Try pressing the key indicated to enter into SETUP if you cant just try and look for a jumper on the motherboard that is written CMOS it may be a button or something.

Remove the main battery, now try power on, if okay the battery needs to be replaced. Sub out ram one at a time to see if you can start it.

I want to open my hardrive in the model EVO N800V COMPAQ to replace it..kindly help..


Looks like it's just a notebook IDE drive. On the bottom of the laptop, there should be some symbols that look like hdd platters in a vertical line. Unscrew the screws next to these symbols and pop that cover. Remove hdd, take old hdd out of the metal cradle it's in and put the new on in there. Then screw back together.
