Compaq pesario C300 not starting

Hi
i recently went to start up my laptop and at first it started fine with fan working ect. but is it entered the screen with the windowsXP badge and loading bar as the loading bar reached half way on the first run it stops cuts off from the windows screen with a blue screen with white wrighting flashing up for a second then going off ans then it shows a black screen with white wrighting with the messege:
we apologize for the inconvenience, but windows did not start successfully. A recent hardware or software change might have caused this.
if your computer stopped responding ,restarted unexpectedly, or was automatically shut down to protect your files and folders, choose last known good configeration to revert to the most recent settings that worked.
if a previous startup attempt was interrupted due to a power falure or because the power or restart button was pressed, or if you arent sure what caused the problem choose start windows normally.

safe mode
safe mode with networking
safemode with command prompt

last known good configuration ( your most recent settings that worked)
start windows normally.

i have tried to start the laptop using each of these setting firstly bu the advised ones then by trying with safe mode but it does the same thing tries to load and then stops on the windows screen again and reverts back to this screen again

what should i do? does anybody know what has happend and how to fix it? and has this happend to anybody before?

thanks your help is greatly valued
josh

My compaq presario c300 wont start up, power button illuminates the cooling fan kicks in then all the lights flicker and it the swithes off,


This is exactly the same problem as I have. I have changed the power brick and the battery but the problem still exists. PC World were useless and said it "probably needed a new motherboard" although I doubt this is the issue. It worked when I first put the new battery in, until the initial charge ran out. Did you find a solution?

Compaq Presario F700 Laptop power up issue


Remove your cpu/gpu heatsink, apply a ermal bonding, this will prevent shut off because of cpu/gpu overheating(chipset detects temperature faulty in the firsts seconds of operating your laptop), if this didnt resolve your problem, naybe and issue with your Mobo.
