The Start up screen for Compaq series computers is normal, that screen takes you into your BIOS mode. when the screen appears press F1, at the bottom of the screen it will say press F5 or one of those keys to install your Default Settings, Click Yes and Exit. That should do it. Good Luck.

Check monitor is set to correct input (VGA, DVI, HDMI) if it goes to sleep instantly.


Otherwise screen resolution is set too high. Boot into safe mode by pressing F8 during boot. Login and lower screen resolution.

I need help on restoring my compaq armada e500


Hi Welcome to FixYa!
You could try these steps on restoring your laptop into its factory defaults.
1)Turn off your computer if it is on. Wait for the system to shut down completely. Once it is off, press the "Power" button to turn it back on. Press the "F10" button at the top of the keyboard repeatedly as soon as you see the screen turn on. This will let you enter the setup menu.
2)Use the arrow keys to move between the various menu tabs at the top of the screen. Press the "Right" button until the "File" tab is highlighted, then press the "Enter" button to enter this menu. Here you can make changes to the settings of your computer, or in this instance, restore factory default settings.
3)Use the "Up" and "Down" arrow buttons to move to the "Restore Defaults" option, then press enter. You will see a screen asking "Are You Sure You Wish to Restore System Defaults?" Press the "Y" button to continue. The system will begin restoring your default settings. Do not press a button until a screen says "System Defaults Restored."
4)Use the arrow keys to move down to the "Save Changes and Exit" option and press "Enter." The system will save your changes and automatically reboot your computer. You do not need to press "F10" this time as the computer will start Windows normally. You will see the factory settings have been restored once the system loads.
Hope this could help!

    Compaq Presario SR1000 won't boot up completely :(


    Hi Thanks for your question
    I would suggest to enter "safe mode" and then do system restore again. To do this you need to follow these steps.
    1.Turn your PC on and press F8 on start up. This should take you to the screen asking what you want to do. 2. Choose safe mode from the list and press enter. 3. Once safe mode loads you should be asked if you want to restore your system to previous state. Just press no to run system restore and follow steps (you already know how to do this)
    Shutting your computer down without closing operation system properly may cause start up issues like this one.
    I hope this helps you. Good luck

    You may want to try boot into SAFE MODE.
    Do this by pressing F8 repeatedly until you are offered boot options by windows.

    select SAFE MODE and continue on. Note this may take longer to boot and is normal.
    when it goes into windows it will ask you if you want to continue so click yes.

    If you have recently installed any programs esp. toolbars then you should use the ad/remove programs to delete them.

    Also if you have antivirus AND antispyware now would be an ideal moment to let them go to work.

    Now try a reboot.

    Can sumone plz tell me wen i start my hp compaq nc6000 orange light come n thn shut down it dont boot bt after many time it get started n after sumtime the screen disapear plz tell me whats this problem


    if you press on the top right corner near the pg up button on my set, it boots up fine but release the pressure and the screen goes blank but LED and HDD still hums. I got a guy to resolder the Maxim power regulator chip (BGA) on underside of the mobo. Now the set works fine. seems that opening and closing of the lid causes pressure and flex on the mobo and that in turn causes the BGA to "crack a lead". Only problem is locating the guy with the right tools to do it in your area. Got mine fixed on a recent trip to China

    The monitor setting in windows maybe incorrect. When booting up before you get the windows logo start hitting F8 and then choose safe mode. If your monitor works in windows there then check the monitors settings. You may have a driver issue or a settings issue when in normal windows mode.
