What you are describing is the blue screen of death, meaning theres a hardware or software problem, try to boot into safe mode and perform a system restore, if that doesn't work use your XP cd, let it load the drivers and the ask it to fix the existing XP installation, anything that you have saved in my documents should be safe and the problem should be solved. If the blue screen reappears then you have a hardware problem

Good morning. My Compaq laptop (Presario V6000) is freezing on this screen when booting up: "Windows is starting up..." It has no battery life, so it's always plugged in. Please help. I have...


You can try booting into safe mode to see if there is a problem with a program/driver/setting in windows. First shut off the machine completely. Then after the first logo screen goes away start tapping F8 about every second until you see a new menu screen. It will have options like Safe Mode, Safe Mode with Networking, etc. Use the arrow key on your keyboard to highlight Safe Mode with Networking. Then hit enter. You may have to hit enter again to select your operating system, but usually it just flashes text across the screen then comes to the Welcome screen with Administrator and your username. Click on your username to log in. Click OK on the warning message that pops up, it just explains safe mode. Try opening word and your paper, and see if you can work. If so, then you need to figure out which driver or program you recently updated, and roll it back or uninstall it. If you need further help let me know.

Hi i have a Compaq Presario Sr5410f that was just given to me it freezes on the microsoft corporation loading screen. i was wondering what might be wrong with it?


Probably a bad driver or a bad file etc, try this.
Try start up in Safe Mode press F8. Choose Safe Mode, when at the choice window, to select either Safe Mode Desktop, OR System Restore, chooses system restore and choose a time before you had the "Problem" and follow instructions. This should get you back.

Windows xp will not load on my computer....


It could be your hard drive problem. Which I called it, "Crash." I would suggest you try to format the hard drive and reload the operation system with your installation CD.

Start Normally (black screen with options)keeps re-loading itself


If you can't get into windows normally or into safe mode to try to restore the system back to a date when it worked properly then you'll need to wipe out the hard drive and start the system from scratch.

Compaq presario 5000 not booting up right.


Does the Compaq logo appear when you try to start the computer? Try pressing F10 several times after turning on the power. This should start the "recovery console", which will give you some options for restoring Windows. If the recovery console doesn't start up, there is a good possibility that your hard drive or power supply module may be defective. In that case, you will probably need professional assistance to diagnose the problem.
