Boot into safe mode and change the display to 800 by 600...this should be ok for any monitor.....reboot the machine with the new mode....you can experiment with different settings to get the best display....

My quick restore doesnt work for my compaq presario 2700t labtop how do i get it to work


Hi

Do you mean your system restore, sometimes the hard drive will not be able to restore your laptop to a earlier time because of file corruption.

You can try and google the problem to see if anyone else resolved this issue or you will have to save your data and re-install windows and the drivers again.

cheers

Try Restore computer to a date before you deleted/zipped the files.
Click Start - All Programs - Accessories - System Tools - System Restore and click on a restore date prior to your problems.

I got a diagnostics done on my compaq presario pc sr5130NX. i have a virus. my files are backed up how do i get rid of the virus. do i need to restore the computer, if so how?


You could do two things. First I would download malwarebytes, update it and run a quick scan. I would thendownload Microsoft Security Essentials and install it. It's free. If you have XP or higher, you could do a system restore to a date prior to you having problems.

Plz tell me how format my compaq 5441 pc?


Hi,

In order to format your laptop, you need to secure first your Operating System CD and the drivers for your laptop. Next, you have to back-up your files. Put them somewhere like an external drive for easy retrieval later.

After you've done this, you are now ready to go.

Here are the steps:
1) Insert the OS cd in your cd/dvd rom.
2) Restart your laptop.
3) While your laptop is still booting, press the key that will enable the bott sequence set-up.
4) Once the boot sequence shows up, choose CD/DVD Drive and press enter.
5) The next screen that will appear will be a blue screen with white text below. This means you have entered your OS CD already.
6) From there, you'll be guided with step by step instructions so you won't be lost. Just read it carefully.

Note: After successfully formatting your laptop, you need to install all your drivers.

Hope this helps.

Just get back here if you have follow-up questions.

Thanks!

I have an old Presario 5000 series PC, hard disk crashed, bought a new hard disk and tried to use the Quick Restore CD's to Restore to Factory settings. Can't seem to boot up from Disc 1 of the Quick...


For boot from disk first you have to set first boot device option in BIOS.
for that when you power up the computer press F1 or F2 or "del" key to enter in bios.
Then go to boot menu then set first boot device as your cd/dvd rom.
then save settings then insert recovery diks in rom then check.
Then it boot from disk if your disk and cd.dvd rom works fine.
Let me know if you need more assistance.
Thanks.

My old compaq presario wont read my scan disc


Can you use that port to read any other device?What operating system are you using?Did it work previously?Windows 98 you will have to install drivers.Chances are that old computer has a usb 1.0 so it might not work.However try another device in that port or any usb port on the computer to see if any ports are working.Does your scan disk work on another computer.Have you done a windows update recently.Make sure you try all the above.
Good luck

MEMORY PRESARIO 5441 SER#3H9ACT9EX1L1


Hello, If I understand your question correctly. You want to upgrade your current memory? The link below shows me what your PC desktop came with, (Installed Items). Specifications.

You want to enter your bios & see just what ammount of memory is installed in your 5441 PC. This is how to get into your Bios. Not every PC has the same F key to enter the bios. Turn your monitor. Than start your PC. Watch your screen closly. It will display, Enter setup Press (F ? ) That is how you get into your bios menue. If your Pc did not display this or went by too fast to see than, Re-start the Pc & press the F2 key every two seconds & see if the Pc enters the bios. It could also be the F10 key or F12 Key or the F1 key. Re-try each till you enter your bios. I'll list another link that sell's memory for your 5441. Use the Specifications link above as a guide when picking the ammount of memory you may want.

Hangs up : Variable


i would maybe look at any devices you have connected as the hanging may well be a corrupt driver or faulty hardware, but as always a process of illimination is required. i would suspect either a processor overheating or motherboard problem, as you have changed the ram and you mention that under load it happens frequently.

The quick restore dosen`t work


What operating system you are using before installing windows xp. If it is windows 98, Your restore cd will restore windows 98. if you want to restore to factory settings pls boot from the restore cd and format the harddisk. Becareful, this will erase your entire data on the harddisk which cannot be recover. If you are using licenced (not pirated) windows xp boot from it and reinstall windows xp so that you can run the os smoothly. But in either case becarefull when you are formating, it will destroy entire data and you may endup in soup. feel free to revert back for further quiries
