Compaq Presario R3000 compatible bios?

Is there any sort of bios update that would allow booting from usb?  The default bios is very limited in settings.  I wanted to try ubnutu out and waiting for an adapter to install the new hard drive (wasn't standard connection) so no hard drive space left.

I Think the latest bios update for R3000 is F.35. Sounds like you need to reinstall OS or buy a new HD

Blue screen compaq presario windows xp sp2 cq40


Did you just install a new program or a piece of hardware, update a driver, install an update, etc.? If so, there's a very good chance that the change you made caused the BSOD:
Startup using Last Known Good Configuration to undo recent registry and driver changes.
Use System Restore to undo recent system changes.
Roll Back device driver to version prior to your driver update.

Scan your computer for viruses. Some viruses can cause a Blue Screen of Death, especially ones that infect the master boot record (MBR) or boot sector.

Update drivers for your hardware. Most Blue Screens of Death are hardware or driver related so updated drivers could fix the cause of the STOP error.

Return hardware settings to default in Device Manager. Unless you have a specific reason to do so,the system resources that an individual piece of hardware is configured to use in Device Manager should be set to default. Non-default hardware settings have been known to cause a Blue Screen of Death.

Return BIOS settings to their default levels. An overclocked or misconfigured BIOS can cause all sorts of random issues, including BSODs.

If this doesn't helps you then simply get the system utility program like PC Fresher that will fix windows errors that cause of blue screen

How do i reset my bios


Boot into your BIOS as normal. There will be an option there to "reset to default".
Alternatively you can download thelatest BIOS revision from the HP website, and update your BIOS, which will automatically reset it to default settings

Updating bios from ubuntu


You don't "Boot" a BIOS it means "Built In Operating System" it provides onboard instructions for the essential computer hardware, It is generally best to update the bios before you install the OS, as there can be difficulties and conflicts afterwards. You can update the BIOS and it is available on the Compaq Support site. Good luck.

Shutdown


if it is in a no power no boot situation you will have to replace the bios chip or replace the motherboard. if you update the bios ALWAYS MAKE SURE YOU ARE ON AC POWER AND HAVE A FULL BATTERY. if your battery is weak make sure the power cord is plugged in and secure . if your computer looses power during a BIOS update it is bad .

You can find the bios driver for your laptop HERE. Since your updating drivers you might want to update all of them, that way you've got a current system.

Try upgrading your Bios first, also make sure that the memory that you ar putting in your Laptop is type PC-2700. Other than this, I know that this comptuer has a 2G limit and should have no problem with it.

Compaq Presario R3000 dim screen but not dark


Sounds like the auto-dim in the BIOS is set too low. Fortunately the Compaq R3000 allows you to adjust the brightness right from the keyboard. Hold down the [FN] function key while tapping the [F8] key will brighten the screen, while [FN]-[F7] will dim it. The settings are different for running on AC power and battery, so you must do each individually.

Wrong battery detected.


hmmm..interesting....you may need to download the system drivers, usually for bios or other utility programs. the compatibility issue with batteries, is based on the make/model being loaded into the listings from the sysadmin for your operating system.
