    Hi Silverblade,

    Unfortunately all I know about the machine is that it is a presario f600 laptop for the UK market.
    What is happening, or should I say, not happening is that it won't turn on. He first thought it must be the battery but after putting it solely on the mains it still won't turn on. It just whirs for awhile then goes off.
    He's took it somewhere local & they reckoned it sounded like the motherboard had gone but reckoned it would cost about £200!!!
    I'm trying to find out the type of board for it to see if I can see one on ebay maybe........

    I would like to confirm the model number again it's a Presario F600 right? The reason for asking is I have checked the HP-Compaq website for US and UK and there are F500 and F700 series only.

I think I have the same laptop that also needs a motherboard. The Presario F600 also had a m/n of F572US found on the label with serial. Looking on the Compaq site I found the motherboard is the same as for the F500 notebooks which is 442875-001. Link is at: http://h10032.www1.hp.com/ctg/Manual/c01095493.pdf This number is also found under the memory chips on most Compaq/Hp Laptops. Simply open memory cover and remove the memory chips and there you will find the Motherboard replacement number. Good Luck!

When I turn on my Compaq Presario 5000, I get a message on the first screen that says 1801-Microcode Error. And something about needing a new bios? Please help me.


The motherboard of the pc has a corrupted BIOS chip - this isn't fixable, you would need to replace the motherboard who died of old age.
Since this is an extremely old pc there are no replacement or compatible boards left on sale. Sorry, time for a new pc.

I have a Compaq Presario SR1475CL that I installed Win 7 Pro on and there were no drivers for the onboard integrated LAN. I have no connection to the internet to use Windows Update to download any drivers....


Oftentimes the driver for the integrated LAN is rolled up into the motherboard driver. Try downloading that driver, putting on some sort of portable media (USB flash drive would be idea), and execute it on the Presario.

I would search the motherboard name (K8S-LA, if I'm not mistaken).

The language on my hewlett-packard f600 notebook is changed and i cant get it back to english


You may try to go to Setup Menu (reboot while pressing delete or F2; you need to see which button should be pressed upon booting up to access BIOS menu because this varies between laptops). Using the tab key, highlight Restore to Default Settings or Failsafe Defaults or similar instructions, enter, then save settings and exit. Reboot.

You may also borrow a friend's laptop with the same OS. Follow the English menu. Click Start, Control Panel, click Date, Time and Language Options, choose English.
