Question about Compaq Presario Laptop

1 Answer

Booting up... I go to boot up my Compaq Presario and it won't load Windows. It attempts to, but ends up just cycling through the same options over and over. I have tried every option that the laptop has given me on the screen that says that a problem occurred whenever Windows was shutdown. Any suggestions on how to bring Windows XP up so I can look through files to find what caused the problem? Thanks!

You will have to boot from a cd in order to review the files.

the easy way is to download a copy of linux live-cd like this and boot it without installing it. Once in it, you can review your files, run antivirus, or make a backup.

Good luck!

What now


From the boot manager screen you have to go
Change defaults or choose other options.
Then select Choose other options.
Then select Troubleshoot
Then select Advanced options
Then select Startup Settings
Then click restart.
This will restart your computer and will give you a list in which you will select from. It should be option 4

Compaq presario has fedora needs to get back to windows 7


What you need to do is put in the first restore disc. Turn off the PC. Then when you start you will see the compaq logo there should be an option to boot to boot order. Usually F12. If not there should be an option to go to BIOS. F2. You need to boot to disc first. Once you boot to disc follow the instructions to reinstall Windows.

I have compaq pc presario c300 i cant open windows meaning when i start up my laptop the xp window is just come n go faster (popUp)


When you boot up press F8 function key and Windows will give a list of boot options, select Last Known Good Configuration and hopefully Windows will start up correctly. If not boot up again, press F8 and select Safe Mode and Windows should boot up in standard VGA display mode.
If this doesn't work you need the Compac restore CD disk that came with your laptop. Boot up with this CD to restore your laptop, you most likely will lose data.

Compaq notebook won't boot up


Hi

When you boot the computer back up go into Safe Mode and check to see if you can roll the computer back to the point before you installed the software.

If so this should work. If it works then run a virus scan, a defrag of the hard drive and cleans the temp files.

OR

You can do a diagnostic startup and uninstall Onecare. So once that it is uninstall ed it should be smooth sailing.

Here is a link for some startup / diagnostic software you could try after booting.

I hope this helps
