F10 is compaq open setup restore defaults F10 save changes. If you get blue screen open task manager using ctrl-alt-del to get task manager/new task config ok. don't put anything in password. Good luck.
make sure processor fan is working fine. you may hear the sound of fan on the left side of the laptop. and make sure its not getting heat soon. If the fan is not working you need to replace the fan. If if gets heat soon that means you have to put processor cooling paste.IF the fan is working fine and the processor heat is normal, then you need to re-fix the RAM. Then it will work fine..ok
Okay, easiest first. In Safe Mode, your sound won't work. Safe Mode means only enough drivers to make your PC more than a doorstop get loaded, so that's okay.
Second, if it boots to Safe Mode without difficulty, try running System Restore in System Tools. Go back to some date before when your issue started. That should get you going. Don't worry, your data files will not be affected in System Restore. I hope this helps.
Looks like you have a memory leak of some sort. Press Ctrl+Alt+Delete on your keyboard, and task manager should come up. If your computer is set up differently, then a dialog box will come up with a six buttons on it, you should click on task manager. Go to the preformance tab, and you should see your memory usage. If you go to the Processes tab, you should be able to see which process is using the most memory. From then on (depending on whether you have more or less computer experience) you should be able to solve the problem yourself. If you don't have much experience, just report back with as much detail as you can manage.
