When i turn on it goes start to pc entering power saving mode

Are you sure it isn't the monitor entering powersave mode?
An unhooked monitor (especially flatscreen DELLs ) will go into powersave mode if it isn't getting a signal but is getting power.

First unplug and then replug your monitor. Both ends of the cord, the end in the back of the monitor (if it comes out at all) and the end that plugs into the computer.(unplug it from the wall first)

Reboot computer.

If that fails...(and you do have a video card)

Unplug everything from the computer, open the box, ground yourself by touching the metal frame of the computer case and reseat your video may have to undo one screw to get it out.
DON'T drop the screw into the case!

Put it all back together and try again.

If that all fails Boot Windows (windows right?) into safe mode and change the power settings for the monitor...perhaps something got changed or broken by an update.

If that fails....

Get Linux.

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

How do i connect my compaq pc to tv

Without the model number comptuer, I cannot verify what outputs your comptuer has. Without this, I will provide the various ways a PC can be connected to a TV.

1. Use a VGA to DVI adapter (HD-15 pin to DVI). Use either a standard VGA montor extension cable (cheaper) or a DVI extension cable (more expensive) to make the connection

2. If you computer has a DVI output, use a DVI extension cable only

3. If your computer has HDMI output - use a HDMI to DVI adapter and either a HDMI or DVI extension cable.

In all 3 cases, you will probably need to go to the comptuer's Display Properties and adjust the screen size so it looks OK on your TV (go to the Control Panel - find Display) and adjust the screen resolution to match the format of your TV.

One note - when purchasing DVI cables, understand that there are 3 types - DVI-D (digital), DVI-A (analog) and DVI-I (digital and analog) and that the pin outs are different. Be sure to check your the owners manual of your TV to find which connection it needs.

Here is a good reference for DVI types

Computer won't work right

Try entering on security mode.

Press F8 when computer starts, so that appears the booting menu.
Try the "safe mode" and revert for example to last recovery, if it's windows XP.

Powersave problem

If you are using a desktop computer, chances are that you don't want the computer to go to sleep automatically. This is even more the case if you are running Vista in a virtual machine for testing purposes.
Disabling power management is simple and easy. First go to the start menu and click on the Control Panel.
Click on the System and Maintenance link

Then click on the Power Options link:

It will disable automatic sleep mode, but will still turn off display.\
You can click on change plan to disable.

If you are using XP than.

Open control pannel-> click on power option -> keep turn off monitor setting to never.
