Kenlaya, This will be a bit more complex but i hope you will grasp. That is a sign of a corrupt system file that makes the operating system unstable and fail to boot up.
If you are using Windows 7,
Put the CD in the CD drive and restart your computer. When you are prompted, choose System repair, or start-up repair. This will fix your problem. Note: The Serious the problem, the longer it will take to fix it up.
If your laptop is running Windows XP....
Put the Operating system CD (e.g XP, Win 7 or Vista or anything like that), in the CD drive. Boot your laptop while pressing F2 and this will let you go to the system BIOS for your laptop. In the system BIOS locate the boot order or the boot sequence and configure the CD drive to be the first in the boot order and restart your laptop. This will let the computer boot from the CD. Wait until the CD finishes loading its files, then you are going to be prompted to press Enter (to continue) or press 'R" to repair using an automated repair.
At this point just press enter and continue, then you will press F8 for license agreement and then you will be prompted again to press Esc if you want to install your Operating system afresh, or to press "R" to repair your OS(Operating system) or press F3 to quit. At this point, you can now press R to repair. Sit back and relax while the CD replaces old with new files in your Windows directory.... When it is done, it will restart and continue in another face where you will be prompted to answer a few question and then your operating system would have been cleansed.

hi, in compaq the power-on switch is not sensitive enough to kick start on a single touch.what you need to do is press button firmly.but still if you face the same problem,you have to the notebook to HP Total care to check the switch .probably this cannot be a serious issue even though it is a bit irritating one.
Most likely your windows installation is corrupt or your harddrive is damaged. I would recommend takeing the laptop to a local pc repair shop / center for analysis. Shouldnt cost much. And it will save both of you alot of time and energy.
I asume the laptop is constantly in that loop.. you put power on that thing comes up, it tryes to load but fails, it starts up again and the same text come up blaablaa. Then thats probably the problem.
